    Good goaltending + good special teams = win.


    Antero Niittymaki allowed just 1 goal on 40 shots. He outplayed Roberto Luongo, and he's 7-0-1 in his last 8 games.

    First Period
    TB 8:00, Stamkos 33 (St. Louis, Malone)(PP)

    Second Period
    VAN 19:53, Kesler 15 (Ehrhoff)(PP)

    Third Period
    TB 2:52, St. Louis 19 (unassisted)(SH)
    TB 15:40, St. Louis 20 (Stamkos, Downie)

    You never want to get outshot 40-19, but somehow the Lightning keep manufacturing goals and keep getting the goaltending they need to win. They jumped to 6th in the East with the victory and they're 4 points up on 9th place Boston. But, Boston has a game in hand and is coming into the Forum Thursday for a big 4-point tilt. So, once again, no rest for the wicked.

    It's hard to call this a signature win with Calgary holding onto a playoff spot by a fingernail, but the Lightning proved a lot of things tonight.

    TB-2 (OT)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 26 shots for the win.

    First Period
    CGY 15:44, Giordano 10 (Glencross)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    TB 1:00, Stamkos 32 (Smaby, St. Louis)

    TB 1:58, Meszaros 5 (Downie)

    The Lightning are continuing to look more and more like a playoff team as they prove they can win different types of games different ways. Good teams win games against bad teams even when they don't bring their best to the rink. The Lightning showed they could pull out those kind of wins in the past couple of games against Atlanta and the Islanders. Tonight, they proved they could win a very tight checking game against a very good trap team in Calgary, which is something they will see if they make the postseason and run up against teams like New Jersey. So, they proved they could win a different style of game, and they erased the bad taste of their last big television appearance on Versus when they got spanked by the Rangers with such a solid showing on HNIC. Now comes a really big test on Tuesday against Vancouver, which could very well come out of the West when all is said and done this year. So, as we said earlier this season, there's no rest for the wicked, and the Lightning can't afford to lose any games with only a 2 point lead on 9th place.

    You know what they say about, "All good things..."


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 5 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NOR Keller, (9) (Simek, Szczechura), 3:17
    HFD Couture, (7) (Potter, Locke), 3:54
    HFD Soryal, (2) (Ambuhl, Potter), 18:32

    Second Period
    HFD Couture, (8) (Williams), 5:03
    HFD Byers, (14) (Potter, Locke), 11:43

    Third Period
    HFD Roche, (3) (Heikkinen, Locke), 5:18 (PP)

    Jim Johnson loses his first game in regulation as Head Coach of the Norfolk Admirals. His record drops to a still stellar 7-1-1-1.

    Unfortunately, in a playoff chase this close, you cannot afford to lose any games. Norfolk drops back to 7 points behind 2nd place Albany in the East Division. They'll remain in 3rd place, which is the last playoff spot in the East Division, by virtue of Syracuse crushing Adirondack tonight. However, the surging Crunch will now move into a tie with Adirondack at 2 points behind the Admirals.

    The situation with the crossover is much bleaker. Hartford (5th in the Atlantic) is now 5 points ahead of Norfolk and Bridgeport (6th in the Atlantic) is 1 point ahead. If Norfolk slips to 4th in the East Division, they must finish ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic to make it to the postseason.
