TB can't get the 1-3-1 going because Carolina's 3 are filling the middle spot, and down low, so they're hesitantly moving between the 'brolly (in Raleigh) and trying to find space to setup a 1-3-1.
When a killing team is doing that, they're not interested in making an offensive play themselves. The shots from the point were coming out of necessity, as the Canes were retreating so far, there becomes very few reasonable options left.
Random fact: when the Jets pulled their skater for the extra man, the Lightning switched to 1-2-2 on the forecheck.
