You knew the Lightning would be tested once it lost captain Steven Stamkos - again - last week.

But Tampa Bay found a way to win four of five games on its last road trip, and five of six overall heading into Friday's game against Columbus. How did the Lightning do it? In this week's podcast, we break down who has stepped up in Stamkos' absence.

We also examine the strong start by backup goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, and what it could mean for the Lightning's future plans with him and starter Ben Bishop. Then, we take your questions on Anton Stralman, J.T. Brown, Thanksgiving and more.
