Barberio’s 2 goals lift Tampa Bay past Canes 5-3
Question of the Day
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Mark Barberio can finally get a haircut.
The Tampa Bay defenseman scored his first two career goals, and the Lightning beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Sunday to move into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division.
Barberio promised himself as a minor leaguer two years ago that he wouldn’t cut his hair until he made it to the NHL and scored there.
Now it’s time for those shoulder-length locks to come off.
“I was just going to let it grow, and I think it’s gotten a little too long,” Barberio said.
“It’s got to go, though,” he added. “I made a promise.”
Teddy Purcell also scored to help the Lightning pull even with Boston atop the division.
“I’m sure they were frustrated,” Bishop said, “but that’s what you’re supposed to do.”
“A lot of what we wanted to do was throw pucks at the net, attack,” Staal said. “All those goals that can deflate you, they capitalized on. We didn’t sulk or cry. We continued to work and compete and had a lot of other chances and fought hard to try to get back into it. Just was a little too big of a hill to climb.”
Justin Peters gave up three goals on seven shots and exited with 4:53 left in the first.
Anton Khudobin finished it by making 15 saves for the Hurricanes, who have lost three of four since a season-best five-game winning streak.
They made this one interesting midway through the second, with Semin and Staal scoring 3:54 apart to cut their four-goal deficit in half.
