They fell asleep in the second half of the second period, but other than that it was a very solid, workmanlike effort by the Lightning. It was actually pretty phenomenal considering the team only dressed five defenseman, and one of them played under a dozen minutes.
David Koci had 15 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 2:28.
Paul Szczechura had 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and was 33% on draws in 11:54.
Vladimir Mihalik had 1 assist and 1 blocked shot in 11:19.
Tonight is the 41st game of the season for Steven Stamkos, which graduates him from prospects status according to Bolt Prospects' criteria. Congratulations to the 2008 #1 pick. The change will be reflected on the release of Bolt Prospects' 2008-2009 Midterm Rankings.
