NHL Game Night 1/29: Lightning at Hurricanes

It really hurts when you outplay a team but you don't get the bounces.

TB-2
CAR-3

Mike Smith allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the loss.

First Period
16:55 TB Recchi (11), (unassisted)

Second Period
05:34 CAR Larose (11), (Cullen)(SH)
18:36 CAR Cullen (11), (Pitkanen)

Third Period
05:10 TB Malone (15), (Recchi, Downie)
18:24 CAR Staal (21), (Samsonov, Gleason)

The really bad news is that Florida is in the process of smoking Montreal tonight, so the Lightning will wake up tomorrow 10 points out of 8th place.

Steve Downie had 1 assist, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 9:59.

Matt Smaby was +1 with 2 hits in 9:59, and played really well for a guy who was a late decision to play tonight.
