Pius Suter could have dreamed of another baptism by fire in NHL. The former Zurich Lions forward drank the cup with Chicago in Tampa Bay.
In the lair of the defending champion, the Blackhawks lost 5-1. Aligned for nearly 12 minutes, Pius Suter showed a differential of -1. The neophyte sent 4 shots against goalkeeper Andrei Vasilesvskiy. Big black point of his evening: his excitement over the commitments with only one duel won out of the 5 he played.
Led by a remarkable Steven Stamkos with 1 goal and 2 assists, the Lightning went quietly to lead 3-0 at the end of the 1st period. The two teams face off again on Friday in Tampa Bay.
