The Tampa Bay Lightning owned the best home record at 32-8-1 during the regular season, but they have gone just 5-6 at Amalie Arena during the post-season which includes dropping four of their last six contests.

On Saturday night (June 6) the Lightning will look to even the series at one-game apiece and stop a three-game losing streak, which includes a three-game home losing streak when the host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Lightning hasnt lost four straight home games since the middle of the 2013-14 season when they lost five straight games from Dec. 28, 2013 vs. Montreal to Jan. 18, 2014 vs. San Jose.

Additionally, seven of the past eight games between the Blackhawks and Lightning have been decided by one goal. The Bolts has won four of their past five home contests against Chicago (regular season and postseason).

The Blackhawks, meanwhile, have won five of their past seven games as visitors (dating to Game 3 of the Second Round at MIN). They rank second in the NHL with six road wins during the playoffs (6-4), behind only the Lightning (7-3).

In Game 1, the Lightning suffered their first loss of the postseason when leading after two periods (8-1). Including the regular season, they suffered their first regulation loss in that scenario (41-1-2). The Lightning also lost for the first time when scoring the first goal during the playoffs (9-1). They went 35-7-4 in that scenario during the regular season.

In Game 1 on Wednesday night (June3) the Lightning turned on the red lamp early in the first period when Alex Killorn notched his eighth goal of the post-season with an amazing backhand no-look backhand, mid-air deflection that went past Chicago goalie Corey Crawford for a Bolts 1-0 lead at 4:31.

"You don't expect to score on those shots, but I was just trying to sort of hit it toward the net. Not something you practice, but lucky it went in, said Killorn.

Following a scoreless second period, the Bolts still maintaining a 1-0 lead saw that come to an end when Teuvo Teravainen notched his third goal of the post-season at 13:28, tying the score at 1-all.

Just 1:58 later, Antoine Vermette netted his third goal of the post-season and eventual game-winner when he beat goalie Ben Bishop, giving the Blackhawks a 2-1 at the 15:26.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Chicago became the first road team to post a regulation-time win via a third-period comeback in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final and they also became the first team to win Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in regulation when trailing while being shutout in the third period.

In Game 1, the Lightning suffered their first loss of the postseason when leading after two periods (8-1). Including the regular season, they suffered their first regulation loss in that scenario (41-1-2). The Lightning also lost for the first time when scoring the first goal during the playoffs (9-1). They went 35-7-4 in that scenario during the regular season.

Bishop finished the game with 19 saves on 21 shots and the Lightning moved to 1-3 in Game 1's during the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Chicagos Corey Crawford turned aside 22 shots on goal, including 17 straight to conclude the game.

The Lightning hope their luck of Game 2 success continues as they enter the game owning 3-0 record so far during the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, while the Blackhawks are 2-1.

In the opening round against Detroit, the Lightning fell 3-2 in Game 1 despite holding a 46-14 advantage in shots. In Game 2, the Lightning jumped on the Red Wings early and built a 4-0 lead before cruising to a 5-1 victory. In the second round, the Bolts edged out a 2-1 victory in double overtime against Montreal in the first game and then came back with a 6-2 victory in Game 2. In the Eastern Conference finals, New York picked up a 2-1 victory on a late goal in Game 1, only to see the Lightning storm back with a booming 6-2 victory in Game 2. Now, here in the Stanley Cup Final the Bolts dropped the first game to Chicago 2-1.

Just learning from our mistakes is the biggest thing. We do a good job of that, breaking down the game a little bit and seeing what areas we can improve, whatever that might be, and going out the next game and fulfilling that. That seems to have worked out for us in the past, said Lightning defenseman Jason Garrison.

Valtteri Filppula recorded an assist and went 13-for-19 (68%) in the face-off circle in Game 1 against Chicago and has posted six points (one goal, five assists) over his past seven games and paces the Bolts for face-off percentage during the postseason at 55.0%.

Teams winning Game 2 have gone on to raise the Stanley Cup 74.7% of the time since the Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939 (56-of-75 series), including nine of the past 12 occasions.

Another very interesting tidbit about Game 2s is that in each of the past four seasons the game has gone to overtime.

2014 - NY Rangers 4 at Los Angeles 5 (Dustin Brown, 10:26 of 2OT)

2013 - Boston 2 at Chicago 1 (Daniel Paille, 13:48 of OT)

2012 - Los Angeles 2 at New Jersey 1 (Jeff Carter, 13:42 of OT)

2011 - Boston 2 at Vancouver 3 (Alex Burrows, 0:11 of OT)

Since 2004, there only has been one split of the opening two games in the Stanley Cup Final. In 2013, the Blackhawks won Game 1 (in 3OT) and the Bruins won Game 2 (in OT) Chicago eventually won the series in six games.

Forty-nine teams have taken a 2-0 series lead since the Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939. Of those clubs, 44 (89.8%) have gone on to claim the Stanley Cup, including the Kings in each of the past two instances (2012 and 2014).

Lightning rookie Jonathan Drouin told reporters Saturday following the Bolts optional morning skate hed take part in Saturdays pre-game warm-ups. Drouin hasnt appeared in a playoff game since Game 4 against Montreal.

For these playoffs, weve always put 21 in warm-ups, so youve got to show up to the game to see whos going to play, Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said.

In losing three in a row, the Bolts have been outscored 14-5.

Weve got a find a way to get a win here, and it starts tonight, said Lightning center Tyler Johnson, who will be trying to snap a five-game goalless drought of his own.

You are expecting, but are not the type of woman who will sit idle, and do nothing only sitting at home until the arrival of the baby. So what kind of work should you do to keep yourself engaged and bring in a few dollars as well? You certainly cannot do any work at all, right, and need to take care of your health and that of the child too that is due.

So what are the options available, and what are the dos and don'ts during this time. Here is a list of jobs that women can pursue when they are pregnant, so as to earn some money and keep themselves busy, and also make sure that they do not jeopardize the health of two people in the process.

Most Suitable Jobs for Pregnant Women

One of the most important things is that the job should involve your area of interest. Do not get into jobs that are either stressful, or do not provide you with some mental satisfaction. Here is a list of jobs that would be beneficial to you when you look out for jobs during your pregnancy period.

Medical Transcription

Medical transcription is a good option for women who know a thing or two about biology, the human body anatomy, and medicine. However, prior knowledge about these areas is not mandatory, as there are a number of institutes which provide all the necessary medical transcription training for candidates from non-medical backgrounds too. This is a great option for work-at-home moms too, hence it is something that you could continue well after childbirth as well.


Another good option for pregnant women, this involves making telephone calls to prospective customers and educating or informing them about new products, services, and promotional offers. You can either join an agency that is professionally into telemarketing or you can try and pursue it from home itself. Do not opt for a type of job that is too technical or has a lot of time-bound deadlines. If this is taken care of, then this type of job is easy physically too.

Administrative Jobs

This is another kind of job where physical stress would be minimal. You could think of certain administrative or desk jobs in places like libraries, travel agencies, private offices, etc. Jobs such as those of a bookkeeper, computer operator, etc., would be ideal for you, considering your prenatal care requirements.

Medical Billing

Jobs in medical billing and claims are different from medical transcription jobs. In this case, you will be required to work with a special medical billing software and generate bills and medical insurance claims, which will then be sent to health insurance companies for verification and clearance. You can take up this job through a proper agency that specializes in this field of work, or you can pursue it from home after undergoing the necessary training.

Online Jobs

The Internet offers a wide range of online jobs and other earning options. A number of Internet business and employment opportunities are available in the fields of writing, data entry, typing, software development, website content development, etc. Copy-writing, freelance writing, and essay writing are a few Internet job options that you can consider, if you have a flair for writing.

Maternity Store Jobs

When pregnant, what better place to apply for a job than a maternity store? Promoting maternity products, working as a cashier, counseling fellow expectant mothers, and helping them choose maternity clothes and other products, are some of the commonly available job profiles at such stores. In the process you will also learn a few things that are good for yourself too.

Tutoring at Home

You can teach students at your home, and these students can be children of your neighborhood also. This can be an ideal job when you are pregnant. This job would also provide you an atmosphere to stay connected to people.

Clerical or Receptionist Jobs

These type of jobs do not involve physical labor. A receptionist or a clerical job mostly involves sitting down. These is also not a lot of stress associated with such kinds of jobs. Thus, it can be a good option while you are pregnant.

Things to Look Out For

Avoid strenuous or physical labor jobs. Look out for a supportive atmosphere from your boss and co-workers. Have a detailed understanding of the maternity and the leave policies. Find a job where you don't have to hide your pregnancy. Do not take up a job in which you will end up leaving important tasks unfinished. These were a few job options that pregnant women can consider during those novel nine months. All of them are relatively stress-free jobs, and are certainly a good option to think of, if you wish to make some money without sweating it out too much while keeping yourself busy.
