Game Night 3/30: Thrashers at Lightning

A huge win, and a first for Paul Ranger. ATL-3 TB-4 John Grahame stopped 19 of 22 in the win. Tampa staked itself to a 4-0 lead before allowing Atlanta to get close in garbage time. No harm no foul as the Lightning get away with the 4-3 win. Paul Ranger scored his first NHL goal in the game on a long point shot and because of Atlanta's three goals late it turned out to be the game winning goal. The other rookie blueliners played very very sparingly, and the best compliment I can bay them is that I didn't really notice either O'Brien or Helbling with the exception of a mistake Timo made late in the game. Ranger led all Lightning rookies with 22:26 of ice time with 1 shot, 1 hit and 2 blocked shots. Ryan Craig was -1 in 16:06 with 1 shot, 1 hit and 1 blocked shot. Timo Helbling played 11:11 and was +1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot. Evegeny Artyukhin played an effective 4:44 with 2 shots and 1 hit. Doug O'Brien was the low man in ice time with 3:24 of even hockey with 1 blocked shot. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS021086.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]
