Did I just write that? Did the Tampa Bay Lightning win in OT tonight? That's right. A win in OT.
What happened during the 1st and 2nd period? NOTHING
The Lightning get 7 shots on goal in 2 periods. Awful. But let's focus on the positive tonight. The 1st and 2nd was a waste of time. Rick Nash was a disappointment.
Jan Hejda starts the 3rd period with a goal for CBJ. If CBJ get 2 points tonight they would be getting that much closer to clinching a playoff berth. Malone says "not so fast" and answers back with a PP goal.
This game moves to OT. I have almost written off the team at this point. My worst fear is that they will end up in a shootout. But no! Martin St. Louis comes back with a huge individual effort and wrists a shot past Mason!!!! Booyeah.
McKenna plays a great game and stops 33 out of 34 shots.
So let's forget about the boring 1st and 2nd. Let's just celebrate the fact we won in OT. At this point in the season, I will celebrate the little things.
