Tampa Bay Lightning Blame Themselves In Loss To The Vegas Golden Knights

from Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times,

The door to the Lightning dressing room remained closed a little longer than usual Thursday night, and that wasn’t surprising.

After the kind of performance displayed in its 4-1 loss to the expansion Golden Knights, this had team meeting written all over it. No specifics were given about what was discussed.

"None of your business," Anton Stralman said.

But what players did say after the doors were open was telling about what’s behind this recent funk, the Lightning having lost four of its past six.

"It all starts with how we work," Stralman said. "And we’re not a good team when we don’t work. And (Thursday) was one of those nights we didn’t show.

"(Vegas) is as good team, but I don’t think they did anything remarkable out there. They played simple, and we just didn’t put up a fight. And that’s on us."
