The patient has a pulse.

WSH-2

Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 30 shots for the victory. It's amazing what a difference goaltending makes, isn't it?

First Period
WSH 16:54, Fleischmann 20 (Ovechkin, Knuble)(PP)
TB 19:11, Bochenski 2 (Fedoruk, Lundin)

Second Period
TB 11:30, Walker 2 (Veilleux, Thompson)

Strange to see the rare game where the Lightning don't get a goal from the power play or #91, and it happens to be a big win.

Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 1 hit in 11:06. He was also 33% on draws.
