Everything's slipping away...


Mathieu Garon allowed 4 goals on 42 shots for the loss.

First Period
07:23 NYR Hagelin (7), (McDonagh)
08:40 NYR Stepan (4), (Callahan, Girardi)

Third Period
18:27 NYR Nash (4), (Richards, McDonagh)

Let's state the obvious: 1. The team can't win a close game. 2. They can't win on the road. 3. They can't beat anyone outside of the Southeast Division.

Alex Killorn was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 4 shots, and 1 blocked shot in 16:14.

Richard Panik played 7:38.

Cory Conacher had 1 shot and 1 hit in 14:33.

NHL Game Night: 2-26-13 Sabres at Lightning

The Lightning lose one they really couldn't afford to let get away.


Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 21 shots for the loss.

First Period
01:24 TB Stamkos (14), (Purcell, Conacher)
10:02 BUF Hodgson (8), (Sekera, Vanek)

Second Period

Third Period
00:52 BUF Myres (3), (Vanek, Hodgson)

Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

With so many road games on the docket over the next week, the Lightning really needed to capitalize at home against a struggling Sabres team. And, to be honest, they didn't play badly, outshooting Buffalo 31-21 and really badly outchancing them, too. Unfortunately, they have Ryan Miller, who stole them a win tonight.

Alex Killorn was -2 with 4 shots and 1 hit in 12:38.

Richard Panik had 1 hit in 8:36.

Cory Conacher had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot in 17:19.

Same problems continue to plague Lightning.


Anders Lindback allowed 3 goals on 10 shots before giving way to Mathieu Garon who allowed 1 on 11 the rest of the way, taking the back door loss.

First Period
01:16 PIT Crosby (8), (Kunitz)
07:15 PIT Crosby (9), (Neal, Martin)
19:26 PIT Martin (3), (Cooke)

Second Period
01:37 TB Brewer (4), (Stamkos, Killorn)
03:14 TB Stamkos (13), (Purcell, St. Louis)(PP)
12:20 PIT Bennett (1), (Crosby, Letang)(PP)

Third Period
03:15 TB Conacher (7), (Hedman, Stamkos)
19:08 PIT Cooke (3), (Sutter, Letang)(EN)

Steven Stamkos was the game's second star.

Too many early goals allowed. Too many goals late in periods. This team seems to be playing from behind 90% of the time, and that's not a way you win games in professional hockey.

Alex Killorn had a helper and was +1 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 15:08. Good things happen when he has the puck.

Richard Panik was +1 with 2 shots and 2 blocked shots in 10:57. He had the potential tying goal on his stick on a Third Period breakaway but just didn't have the time and space to make much of a move.

Cory Conacher had a goal and was -1 with 3 shots and 1 blocked shot in 14:20. Players are taking liberties with Conacher physically and at some point someone on the Lightning needs to defend the guy. He's leading the league in rookie scoring and he's getting the snot beaten out of him. Stevie Y had a pretty good protector in his early years by the name of Bob Probert. Conacher needs a little Secret Service protection, too.

The kids are alright.


Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 34 shots for the win. If Mathieu Garon got to play the Hurricanes 55-60 times a year, he'd win the Vezina Trophy. It's a shame he can't stop a beach ball against any other team. At the opposite end of the rink, it took 40 minutes, but Dan Ellis finally turned into a sieve in the Third Period. Anything less than 5 goals against Dan Ellis would not have done.

First Period
10:54 TB Bergeron (1), (unassisted)

Second Period

Third Period
02:11 TB Pouliot (6), (Lecavalier, St. Louis)
03:04 CAR Bowman (1), (Nash, Larose)
07:37 TB Panik (1), (Hall, Stamkos)
07:55 TB Pyatt (4), (Killorn, Brewer)
16:11 CAR Larose (2), (Sanguinetti, Jokinen)
17:38 TB Stamkos (12), (Conacher, Salo)

Garon and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars. Balderdash, I say! The stars of tonight's game were the kids. The 18 second span where Panik and Killorn each made brilliant individual plays took a death struggle and turned it into a laugher. When you add in Conacher's assist on Stamkos' icing on the cake goal, you have a night to make Bolt Prospects very proud.

Alex Killorn had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot in 13:52. That behind the back assist from the corner to Pyatt was just a thing of beauty. The kid has so much poise and plays such a straightforward game, but he has just enough skill to do that to you from time to time. Guy Boucher reportedly loves him some Killorn. Saw that coming a mile away. How could any coach not like a player like Killorn?

Richard Panik (pictured) scored his first NHL goal and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot. Panik attack, y'all! He only got 7:50 of ice time, but you just see the explosiveness. I doubt he stays up when/if Malone gets healthy again, but Panik's going to be an NHL regular sooner rather than later. There's too much there.

Old man Cory Conacher had a helper and was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 15:40.
