The Lightning have been outscored 10-3 in the second period this year.
They allowed all four goals in their 6-4 win against the Senators in the second period. "What's happening now is it's the beginning of the year and every team is going to have moments when it's not at its best," coach Guy Boucher said. "But to have entire second periods every game, it's unacceptable. We've got to change that.''
