So this was the last game of the season. We had clinched 29th spot, and I was hoping for a win...ok, maybe that was asking too much from a team that last lost god knows how many games in row, nhl.com says nine.
There's not a whole lot to say about this game, it was just another loss to close out the season. On a rare occurence this season, Tampa actually had more shots on net than Atlanta (36 v 26), though clearly didn't capitalize on them like Altanta did.
Stamkos netted his 23rd of the season, setting a new rookie goal scoring record. Congratulations for his rookie year, it makes me excited for what is to come next season from him.
