Lightning comes from behind to beat St. Louis is solid effort

Now, that’s more like it.

The Tampa Bay Lightning still cannot be certain that its struggles are over, especially not as beaten up as they are. But for a night, the Lightning was a special team again Thursday night.

The Lightning came back from a two-goal deficit to defeat the St. Louis Blues, 5-2. Tampa Bay fell behind with two quick goals in the first period before coming back.

“It’s the National Hockey League,” said coach Jon Cooper. “To me, every win’s impressive. It’s hard to win in this league. I think the one thing that was impressive was you’re down two and you come back and get five unanswered. I was really, really proud of the way we battled back because that game could’ve gone the other way really quick. When the team is emotionally invested, we can be pretty good. It doesn’t matter who’s in there and I thought after the first period we got emotionally invested, and it was a really good effort by the guys.”

Brian Boyle got the Bolts on the board in the second period, redirecting a shot from Victor Hedman. Boyle has four goals in the last five games, and Hedman has eight assists. Michael Bournival tied the game at two with his first goal since 2015.

Alex Killorn broke the tie with his 11th goal 5:25 into the third period.

Jonathan Drouin scored the last two goals, one on an empty netter. He’s scored 10 goals on the season.

It was the first time since mid-November the Bolts have won two straight.

“Ultimately, you get judged in wins and losses, but internally when you work your way out of something, it’s how you’re working your way out,” Cooper said. “I really thought when we played St. Louis in St. Louis and we were down 4-1 and we battled back, we didn’t win that game, but you could see things were turning for us. Ever since then, I think the one game, probably the Vancouver game at home, but other than that, those guys have worked. We’ve been on the point side of most of them. Some of them we haven’t. But I just have liked the way our game has transitioned, and we’ve been getting better. It’s funny, the more guys we lose, guys keep coming in and their effort is willing us to games so it’s been nice.”

The Bolts play at Washington tonight.

Boy, the way Glenn Miller played

Sony Pictures Television and Norman Lear are in talks to remake episodes of All in the Family and three other classic Lear sitcoms.

The idea currently being discussed by Lear and Sony executives would be to have new actors recreate classic episodes of the shows, working from the original scripts, and package them as short, six-episode anthologies.

Lear has some experience remaking All in the Family episodes. Three pilots were filmed for the show, only one of which made it to air.

All in the Family was inspired by a British show called Till Death Us Do Part. From its 1965 pilot episode, only a brief clip survives.

Lear bought the rights to the show, and in 1968 produced a pilot for the remake, titled Justice For All. Only Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton, playing Archie and Edith Justice, and D’Urville Martin as Lionel Jefferson would remain for the second pilot in 1969, titled Those Were the Days. A third pilot was produced for CBS, and aired on January 12, 1971. The cast was set, the son-in-law was Polish, and television history was made.

Lightning finally wins a game, beating Calgary on the road

Finally, victory.

The Tampa Bay Lightning ended its losing streak, a slump that had seen the team lose seven of eight games. The Bolts scored two goals in each period to beat the Calgary Flames, 6-3.

The Lightning gave up an early goal, but then scored two in each period. Brian Boyle scored two in the first period and Alex Killorn scored two in the third. In between, Braydon Coburn and Andrej Sustr scored goals.

Goaltender Ben Bishop faced only 22 shots. Three of them went in, including goals by T.J. Brodie and Michael Ferland in a 21-second flurry.

“You sit there and the puck goes into the net three minutes into the game, but there was one thing probably in our last couple of weeks here where our heads are down,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “But nobody batted an eye on that, and I thought that was big. Ultimately, and every coach will tell you, you need your goalie to be there for you. And he was there for us tonight, there’s no question. Even when they got those bang-bang goals in the third, to come up with that save on Bennett, who knows what happens if that goes in. He didn’t have to make a ton of saves tonight, but he made the right one and that was big.”

Cooper liked getting goals from his defense.

“I tell you what it does, it really lifts the guys on the bench because, I don’t know, guys are really pulling for those guys,” Cooper said. “You can just tell, there’s just a weight off their shoulders because it makes them feel part of things. It was a total team effort tonight. You’re missing, (Kucherov) is out, and we lost Palat early in the second period and obviously Stamkos is out, you need to get goals from somebody, and when you’re getting them from everybody, it was a confidence builder for us. It was really good to see.”

Killorn said the Lightning were a desperate team.

“I think when you lose eight out of 10 games, there has to be a desperation level,” Killorn said. “I think the coaches have done a good job keeping it somewhat loose but everyone knows how important games are. You see yourself in the standings and you keep falling, so we have to get right back on track and I think this was a good game starting in that direction.”


The Lightning played without leading scorer Nikita Kucherov.

Tampa Bay plays at Vancouver Friday night and Edmonton Saturday night.

Grapefruit League, World Baseball Classic highlights 2017 Spring Training

The World Series ended just over one month ago, but baseball junkies have something for which to look forward. Real junkies are counting the days until pitchers and catchers report to Florida (or Arizona) for spring training.

For those counting, it is a little over 70 days, depending on the particular team.

When that happens, it is time to look forward to Grapefruit League games spread around the state. The schedule reveals tourists and locals will have more talent than usual to see in 2017.

The 15 major league teams training in Florida will play a total of 251 games against each other around the state. In addition, the semi-annual World Baseball Classic will also visit Florida for early round matchups as well as exhibition games with major league teams.

Games begin on February 23 with Florida Southern facing Detroit in Lakeland and the University of Tampa playing Philadelphia in Clearwater. Spring Training wraps up April 1.

A few things are different for 2017. As Florida’s Major League tenants look for a more compact Grapefruit League, some movement has occurred.

The Washington Nationals have left Viera and are moving into the state’s newest facility, The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches. Joining them are the Houston Astros, who vacated Kissimmee. The Detroit Tigers will be playing in the new-and-improved Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium.

“The Florida Grapefruit League experience at a Major League Spring Training game is one of the best sports experiences around,” John Webb, President of the Florida Sports Foundation said in a release. “There is something for everyone in the family at all of the ballparks in Florida. It makes for a great family vacation.”

The World Baseball Classic, featuring 16 teams from around the globe, will have four of those teams in Miami between March 9 and 13. In addition to the WBC games at Marlins Park, the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic and Colombia will also play exhibitions in Florida cities.

Among the highlights are games between Canada and the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin on March 7 and the New York Yankees in Tampa on March 8. Also on March 8, the USA plays Minnesota in Fort Myers, the Dominican Republic plays Pittsburgh in Bradenton and Colombia visits Port Charlotte to face the Rays.

The USA’s final WBC tune-up is in Fort Myers on March 9 when they play the Boston Red Sox.

According to the Florida Sports Foundation, more than 26 million fans have attended Florida Spring Training games since 2000. Each year, spring baseball provides a $753 million economic impact to the state.

Tampa Bay Lightning’s losing streak continues against St. Louis

The Tampa Bay Lightning appears to be moving in the wrong direction.

The Lightning lost their fourth straight game Thursday night, 5-4  to St. Louis, despite a late comeback. In their last four games, the Bolts have given up 19 goals in their toughest skid of the season.

In their latest defeat, the Lightning fell behind 4-1 (three of the goals coming on power plays), before comebacks narrowed the margin to one goal twice. Ben Bishop stopped nine of 10 goals after relieving Andri Vasilevski, but by then the damage was done. Three of the Blues’ early goals came on power plays.

“They had 10 minutes of power-play time,” said Lightning coach Jon Cooper. “We had 10 seconds. Now you’re sucking a lot of momentum because you’re killing so many penalties, and eventually that cost us.”

For the Blues, Vladimir Tarasenko had a hat trick. Kevin Shattenkirk had the other two goals. Cedric Paquette scored twice for the Bolts, while Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson scored once each.

Cooper said the team is making progress.

“I thought we did a lot of good things,” Cooper said. “We had possession time. We had zone time. We had chances. A couple of times, we got run around in our own zone, but that’s going to happen to everybody. For the most part, 5-on-5 aspect of the game I was really happy with. Ultimately, it came down to special teams, and we weren’t good enough tonight on the PK.”

Cooper chose to be pleased at his team’s strong finish.

“Was it 4-1 at one point?” Cooper said. “And we just kept going. The guys felt this was a winnable hockey game for us. You can’t sit there and play the game not trying to make a mistake. You’ve got to play the game with passion and be aggressive and throw the chips out there and see where they land. We did that. Like  I said, when you’re killing that many penalties, and some were our own doing. We threw two over the glass. Did we have to? No, but we did. And miscommunication on the too many men when a guy was coming off and then he didn’t come off. We shot ourselves in the foot a little bit, but we’ve got to get out of those and we didn’t.

“It’s tough. I thought we should have had the fourth goal earlier. Nesterov had an opening in the slot and threw it wide, and then we give it up seconds later to make it 5-3. We had a chance to tie it on a penalty kill. Vermin gets really good wood on it, has the goalie beat and just throws it over the net. That’s just how it’s going for us right now. But, I thought we played well enough to get points, and that’s kind of how you come out of these things. Sometimes you don’t get the points, and maybe next game we will.”

The Lightning returns home Saturday night to face the Washington Capitols.

Steve Schale reflects on a ‘race-to-the-bottom’ election year

Democratic political strategist Steve Schale realized that Donald Trump would win Florida 45 minutes after the polling places closed.

“Going into Election Day, I thought that Hillary Clinton had a 200,000 vote lead,” Schale, who managed Barack Obama’s Florida campaigns in 2008 and 2012, but sat out 2016, told the Tiger Bay Club in Tallahassee Wednesday.

“By comparison, Barack Obama had a 150,000 vote lead going into Election Day in 2008. Donald Trump would have to win Election Day by nine points. Mitt Romney won Election Day by five points.”

In fact, Schale said, Trump won the day by 13 points.

As the votes came in, at 7:15 Schale thought Clinton had the election “in the bag.”

“By 7:45, I knew it was over,” based on heavily GOP Panhandle counties that were yet to report vote counts. “There were just not enough (Democratic) votes out there for it to play out.”

That’s how finely balanced Florida is politically, Schale said.

Since 1992, when Florida became a swing state, voters here have cast 50 million presidential election ballots, with Democrats enjoying an 18,000-vote advantage in that time – a 0.4 percent difference.

“It’s important not to over-read this election. Even though Trump won, Democrats won governorships in places like North Carolina,” Schale said.

“This was basically a race-to-the-bottom campaign. And, frankly, my party does not win races to the bottom. There are more Republican voters who vote in every election than Democrats. So when you get into a race to the bottom, we don’t win. We have to inspire people, as Barack Obama did in 2008.”

Florida is a “huge, massive place,” Schale said. Miami represents the world’s 32nd largest economy. Tampa ranks No. 57. Orlando’s GDP equals Kuwait’s. Voting patterns reflect the states of origin of Florida’s people, and the I-10 corridor is the fulcrum.

“Hillary Clinton did better in Tampa and Orlando than Barack Obama,” he said.

“Where she lost was in these places that between 7:15 and 7:45 came in and reported. Places like Pasco County, Barack Obama lost by 7,000 votes in 2008, she lost by 53,000.”

It was the 10th closest election in American history, Schale said, and Clinton won the popular vote by at least 2.3 million.

“We’ve not seen this kind of instability in American politics since the 1890s. Our politics are more unstable today than during two world wars, the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Era. It’s Americans calling out, crying out, ‘Please, Washington, be functional. Do something.’ ”

Getting there might be difficult. “The problem is, in both parties, the primaries have become so insane,” Schale said.

“My friends in Bush world, I remember asking them early on, ‘How are you going to win a primary when 60 percent of your primary voters in Iowa believe Barack Obama’s a Muslim from Kenya?’ On my side, same thing.

“That’s the challenge. These primaries are making the candidates more extreme than the country is. Until one of the parties or the other figures it out, we’re going to keep going back and forth.”

As evidence of consensus, he cited gun control. People get hot about it, yet 75 percent of the public supports banning weapons sales to people on the no-fly list, he said.

“Both parties continue to misread these back-and-forth elections as a complete repudiation of the other party and a complete endorsement of something else,” he said.

“One of these days, somebody’s going to figure out that you can run for office on a fiscal conservative, socially liberal message that appeals across party lines, and is going to win 400 electoral votes.”

Clinton supporters should not hope the Electoral College might deny Trump the presidency, Schale said.

“One thing about electors, they’re picked by the candidates. While there have been faithless electors over time – one or two, maybe, at most – you will not see any change in the Electoral College this year. They are slates that are delivered by the campaigns to the state.”

And Schale wishes Trump would shut up about nonexistent voter fraud.

“This voter fraud thing that’s out there right now is absolutely abysmal,” he said. “Not only because it’s a lie. It’s because it plays into the basic cynicism people have about institutions. All of us in the process, we all have a responsibility to defend the institutions.”
