You know things are bad when the team that rides the short bus to the game (alright, that's an unnecessary cheap shot) manages to steal a point from you. TB-5 PIT-4 (SO) John Grahame stopped 24 of 27 before beating M.A. Fleury in the shootout 2-0 on successful attempts by Richards and Prospal. Congratulations to Darren Reid on his first NHL point, a secondary assist on the first of Dan Boyle's two goals. Ryan Craig later got a helper on a Dimitry Afanasenkov marker. Craig led the rookies in ice time with 18:30 but did not manage a shot on goal. He was +1. Paul Ranger was +2 in 17:40 with 1 hit. Nick Tarnasky was even with 1 shot in 5:37. Darren Reid was +1 in 5:21 with 1 shot and 1 hit. Norm Milley was a scratch and Evgeny Artyukhin served the first game of his two game suspension for El Kabonging a Senator with his own helmet.

Sens crush Lightning. In related news, the sky is blue. OTT-4 TB-0 At least Reid and Tarnasky got some garbage time to sharpen their games, although 5 and a half minutes a piece isn't much. Post mortem from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020913.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]

Morgan Cey stopped 38 of 41 shots faced in the loss. Dennis Packard scored both goals for the Chiefs on a pair of primary helpers by Zbynek Hrdel.

No prayer. SPR-2 POR-6 With Tarnasky and Reid headed to join the big club the Falcons had to play this game a man short. Gerald Coleman was hung out to dry allowing 6 goals on 37 shots faced. The Falcons were outshot 37 to 21 for the game. Doug O'Brien had a goal assisted by the Czech/Slovak connection Blatny and Kvapil.
