Anton Stralman recorded two points in the Lightning’s 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

The steady defensemen scored in the second period and assisted on Alex Killorn’s first-period marker. With two goals and eight points, Stralman isn’t really a fantasy factor. But he does make his presence felt in real life as a bonafide top-pair guy. Steven Stamkos had two assists.

Anton Stralman believes the Lightning are getting back on track.

"We are going to get in to it, I think so," said Stralman after he scored his first goal of the season on Saturday. "We are getting some confidence back with how we want to play. We are slowly starting to find it, we just have to eliminate those times were we lose control of the game, and if we do that we will be back on track." He has seven points in 19 games this year, which is well below the offensive pace he set last season when he posted 39 points.

Anton Stralman continues to lead by example for the Lightning.

"When the pressure is at its highest and somebody walks out of there as calm as can be, that's Anton Stralman," coach Jon Cooper said. "Our team, you just hear the guys on the bench praise him, the things he's done for us. Having that confidence that we get to throw him over the boards every second shift, it's just a luxury for us." He has earned an assist in each of his past two games to give him seven points in 19 playoff games this year. Stralman has a 6-0 record in Game 7s in his career and he is likely to play a key role for Tampa Bay if the team advances to the Stanley Cup Final following Friday night's meeting against the New York Rangers.

Anton Stralman had a feeling he would run into the New York Rangers eventually in the playoffs.

It's ironic for sure." Stralman and Brian Boyle signed with Tampa Bay in the off-season after helping the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Final last year. Ryan Callahan is also a former member of the Blueshirts, who is excited for an emotional series.

"It was a hard fought game out there and honestly could have gone either way with the way the game was played,’’ Stralman said. "It’s just one of those games that didn’t go our way, but I’m happy with the way we played, the way we battled and I don’t have much complaint.’’ The Lightning will try to put the Canadiens away again on Tuesday night in Tampa.
