I can fly!!!!!

The mess continues, even at home. At least the newly renovated digs look nice?

That's a positive right?

Thoughts:
  • Five powerplay goals were let in on NINE penalties
  • Five powerplay goals is the most Tampa has ever let in at home
  • You can't win a game when you spend the majority of it killing penalties
  • Why isn't Weiss being covered by somebody on that 6th goal?
  • As soon as Brewer took that delay of game penalty, you could bank on the Panthers scoring another PP goal
  • Bergenheim strikes with a shorthanded goal
  • Steve Downie is lucky he didn't get ejected from the game
  • Matt Gilroy walked away a plus three out of this debacle
  • Hedman and Clark should end up a minus 50 each. For all the praise I've been giving Hedman, he was atrocious.
  • Martin St. Louis had 8 shots but no points
This quote from Stamkos via the Lightning twitter is a perfect reflection of their effort:

"We need to find a way to get out of this & get something going because it's definitely unacceptable right now"

Next game: Thursday October 20th against the Islanders. That's three days to figure out your sh-t team.
