On Thursday night, the Tampa Bay Lightning visited the Edmonton Oilers in what turned out to be an incredibly entertaining game, which the Oilers eventually choked away in the third period.

Despite dominating the entire game and recording a new team record in shots on goal, the Oilers only held a one goal lead entering the third period. Because of an amazing performance by Andrei Vasilevskiy and a shaky one from Stuart Skinner, the Lightning were able to mount the comeback and win 7-4.

Through the comeback, the Tampa Bay Lightning's radio announcer went particularly crazy. When Nikita Kucherov scored the goal to make the score 4-3 Lightning with less than ten minutes left, the announcer got animated, yelling ‘the Oilers are stunned!'

Tonight, the Oilers will have an opportunity to bounce back from the lost lead, and star a new winning streak against the visiting Florida Panthers. After a weak performance last time, all eyes will be on Stuart Skinner, and if he can put the bad game behind him.
