NHL Game Night 2/29: Maple Leafs at Lightning

Love the win, but can the Lightning defer the points in the standings?

TB-3 (OT)

Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 25 shots to collect his first win in a Lightning uniform.

First Period
Tampa Bay 8:51, Michel Ouellet 10 (power play) (Jeff Halpern, Dan Boyle)

Second Period
Tampa Bay 12:13, Alexandre Picard 1 (power play) (Dan Boyle, Vincent Lecavalier)

Third Period
Toronto 0:27, Alexander Steen 12 (Mats Sundin, Tomas Kaberle)
Toronto 11:29, Jason Blake 12 (Ian White)

Tampa Bay 2:02, Dan Boyle 4 (power play) (Vincent Lecavalier, Jussi Jokinen)

Contributions from all the new acquisitions tonight. The Captain, Alexandre Picard, got his first goal for the Lightning and Jeff Halpern and Jussi Jokinen had helpers.

If the Lightning can just find a way to get Stamkos this June, I think they're going to be alright.
