After those two losses against the Panthers I was beginning to wonder if we would ever win against a team in the SE Division again.

  • Malone started the scoring with a goal halfway through the 1st period for his 20th of the season
  • Lecavalier gets a PP goal at the end of the 2nd period. He's had 9 points in the last 8 games.
  • And Downie continues to net goals by getting his 11th of the season
  • The Lightning (32) had more shots on net than Carolina (22), but unlike when we played the Panthers

Tommorrow night we're going to MSG, Niitymaki will most likely be in net again, because no coach in their right mind would start Tokarski in net for his first start at MSG right? Right?


There were some rumours of the Rangers inquiring with the Lightning about Lecavalier's services, but Lawton quickly nixed the rumour today saying that they are "completely false".

“It’s complete B.S. and nobody ever calls me or even asks me,’’ Lawton said. “I haven’t talked to Glen Sather in weeks, so that is completely false that he contacted me to inquire about that. It absolutely did not happen.’ -TBO Sports

Like I've said before, if we end up seeing a Vinny trade, it will most likely in the off season at the request of the captain.

And this TMI article was pointed out by Cassie and TB_hockey_fan during tonight's game thread on Raw Charge. Seriously boys that was a bit too much info about your roommate habits, and Cristodero, you thought that quote was something you wanted to print?
