NHL Game Day 10/29: Sharks at Lightning

Good effort. Unfortunate result.

SJ-4
TB-2

Marc Denis stopped 25 of 28 shots faced before being pulled for the extra attacker and the resulting Sharks empty net goal. The Lightning were paced by Dan Boyle's two helpers with goals coming from Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis on the power play. Individual assists went to Vaclav Prospal and Nikita Alexeev.

I thought the Lightning played reasonably well against a good, rested team coming off the game last night in Carolina. Unfortunately they were the victim of a couple of bad bounces that ended up in the back of their net and some good goaltending by Nabokov. The good news is that Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis seem to be on pace to score the amount of goals the team needs from them now, although Brad Richards is still struggling. What would help greatly is if the Lightning could get something out of the lower lines from players like Karlsson, Afanasenkov and Perrin.

First Period
San Jose 4:02, Joe Thornton 1 (power play) (Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo)

Tampa Bay 13:02, Martin St. Louis 7 (power play) (Nikita Alexeev, Dan Boyle)
San Jose 18:39, Mike Grier 2 (empty net) (Patrick Rissmiller, Marcel Goc)
