Alex Killorn look-a-likes invade Sunrise for Game 1

SUNRISE — It didn’t take Justin Wilson long to figure out how he and his group of friends should outfit themselves for Game 1 of the Lightning-Panthers series. A few weeks ago, the group decided they wanted to fly down to Sunrise and dress as one of their favorite players, Alex Killorn.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Quiet postseason so far

Killorn has four assists in eight postseason games. After a career 59-point season, Killorn's offensive production has slowed. But the Bolts' Masterton Trophy nominee for perseverence continues to deliver solid two-way play for the defending champ. Killorn delivered 17 points, including eight goals, in 19 playoff games in 2020-21 before he was felled with a broken leg, and there's plenty of time for him to find that touch as the Lightning drive toward a three-peat.

Lightning’s Alex Killorn receives second Masterton Trophy nomination

TAMPA — Alex Killorn was willing to do whatever it took to get back on the ice during last season’s Stanley Cup final. After blocking a shot in Game 1 of the series against the Canadiens, the Lightning forward had surgery on his left leg the morning of Game 3. Doctors inserted a steel rod into his leg to support the fibula, which had broken into two distinct pieces. The hope was that he could return to play, if needed, should the series stretch to six or seven games.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Two goals overturned but one sticks

Killorn scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Anaheim. He wired a shot from the high slot at 16:42 of the first to put the Bolts up 2-0 and appeared to tie the game 3-3 late in the third. But that goal was overturned on video review for an offside zone entry. And then Killorn scored at 1:01 of OT, but that goal was nullified on video review, too. He entered the zone before the puck. Killorn was sharp Thursday and snapped a five-game point drought and seven-game goal drought.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Three-game point streak

Killorn picked up a power-play assist in a 4-2 win over St. Louis on Thursday. Killorn is on a three-game, three-point streak (one goal, two assists). He's steamrolling the stat sheet this season with 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 22 games. But after a hot October, Killorn has just one goal (10 points) in 13 games since Nov. 4. It's worth monitoring, but the fact remains that no matter how he produces his offense, Killorn is on track to obliterate his career-high 47 points.
