Game Night Results

    The frustrating thing is the team did almost everything right tonight and still got nothing for it.

    PIT-4
    TB-1

    Another quality start by Karri Ramo wasted by lack of goal support. Ramo allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss, but really he did just about everything humanly possible to keep the Lightning in this game. The third Penguins goal which was a broken stick shot by Sykora of a skate to Ryan Malone at point blank range is one of the more unlucky goals I've seen in a while.

    The Lightning were a Filip Kuba crossbar and/or a Vincent Lecavalier shooting the puck into Conklin's glove rather than a gaping 4x6 away from getting points out of this one. They played well with the exception of a short span in the second period when they were under siege a bit. Under ordinary circumstances over the past two seasons you could shrug this off and say "They'll get 'em next time." Problem is, there aren't many more next times if you do the math. The Lightning can't leave anymore points on the table and have hopes of making a run at the playoffs. I give it another two weeks before Jay Feaster really has to start thinking about pulling the plug on this thing and picking up assetts for a quick turnaround offseason rebuild.

    Mathieu Darche had 1 assist and was +1 in 7:46 with 1 shot and 2 hits. Darche is set to graduate from overage prospect status in 4 games, putting his likely last individual stat line report at 1/19 against the Senators.

    The Mississippi Sea Wolves picked up their lunch buckets and battled out a shootout win over the South Carolina Stingrays Tuesday to extend their season best win streak to five games. Ryan Munce improved to 9-2 on the season with the Wolves stopping 25 shots in regulation and overtime, and four more in the shootout to earn Third Star honors. It is Munce's fifth straight victory. Marek Kvapil had a goal and an assist and scored one of Mississippi's two shootout markers enroute to earning Second Star honors. Kvapil was credited with the game's first goal when a faulty pass from a South Carolina player ricocheted off the skate of Stingrays goalie Josh Johnson and past him to give the Wolves an early 1-0 lead.

    Lightning gut it out to get back in the win column.

    TB-5
    NYR-3

    Karri Ramo with a really gritty performance in net. He surrendered New York's first goal on a puckhandling gaffe and never looked 100% comfortable, but he stopped the pucks he had to stop and ended up making 31 saves on 34 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NY Rangers 3:02, Jaromir Jagr 12 (Marcel Hossa)
    Tampa Bay 5:50, Doug Janik 1 (Brad Lukowich, Chris Gratton)
    Tampa Bay 8:24, Chris Gratton 5 (Jason Ward, Jan Hlavac)

    Second Period
    Tampa Bay 4:23, Chris Gratton 6 (Shane O'Brien)
    Tampa Bay 10:51, Vaclav Prospal 19 (Martin St. Louis)
    NY Rangers 18:24, Scott Gomez 10 (power play) (Michal Rozsival, Paul Mara)

    Third Period
    NY Rangers 4:22, Michal Rozsival 11 (power play) (Chris Drury, Paul Mara)
    Tampa Bay 19:57, Martin St. Louis 17 (empty net) (Vincent Lecavalier)

    The Lightning pulled this one out with a critical penalty kill down two men with a one goal lead in the third. Credit to the Lightning PK for getting in shooting lanes and Ramo for getting the one glove save he needed 2/3 through that PK to get a whistle. It doesn't hurt that the Rangers kept missing the net too.

    Mathieu Darche was even in 9:28 with 1 shot on goal.
