Lightning 2, Penguins 0

So what happened?
If there was ever a game that was the definition of a "snoozer", this was it. After two nice rushes to start the game (one by each team), things were deadly boring. The key play was probably Craig Adams biting on a St. Louis pass fake with the Lightning on the power play during the first period. That opened up the passing lane for Stamkos' one time shot that he blasted past Fleury. That was all the Bolts needed, as they clogged and jammed things up the rest of the night.

Boy, you hate to see a team get rewarded for jamming things up for an entire evening. If every team did that, the NHL's ratings would plummet.

Who scored?
No one.

Any surprises?
Nothing would get the Pens going tonight. There was no urgency. That was the biggest surprise.

Any change in the standings?
Buffalo won and passed the Pens for 2nd in the East.
Conference: 3rd (one point ahead of New Jersey)

Who's next?
The Thrashers come to town for a Saturday afternoon game.

  • Letang missed about 74 shots on net.
  • Fleury had a nice sprawling save on Bochenski to stop a two-on-one in the third period.
  • I hate the Trap.
