TAMPA - Shot volume is the new mantra for the Tampa Bay Lightning blue line.
Fire away from point. Shoot from the circles. Drop down in the offensive zone, when the opportunity presents. Get up the ice in the play.
After one game in which the Lightning were very critical of their own game in more than a few areas, one in particular was addressed among the defense. Be more involved in the offensive zone again, look for shots and don't hesitate when they are available and ensure they get through to create a shot/scramble game around the net.
