NHL Game Day 11/26: Senators at Lightning:

Holy cow. Who'd have thought the Lightning could do THAT in the same week and a half they took a 7-2 beat down from Buffalo?

OTT-1
TB-3

Johan Holmqvist continued his iron fisted hold on the starting goaltending gig stopping 22 of 23 shots faced. Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis and Filip Kuba led the way offensively with 1 goal and 1 assist each. Eric Perrin, Paul Ranger and Dan Boyle each had individual assists in the game. Don't look know, but quiet like a thief in the night Kuba is on a pace for 10 goals and about 55 points. Pavel who? Dollar for dollar, you can make an argument Filip was one of the best free agent signings in the NHL last summer.

First Period
Ottawa 3:34, Jason Spezza 11 (Dany Heatley, Andrej Meszaros)

Second Period
Tampa Bay 10:28, Filip Kuba 3 (Eric Perrin, Brad Richards)
Tampa Bay 11:04, Brad Richards 9 (Filip Kuba, Martin St. Louis)

Third Period
Tampa Bay 18:42, Martin St. Louis 15 (power play) (Paul Ranger, Dan Boyle)

Tell me about Jones

I attended the game tonight and got to see this kid, Blair Jones for the first time.

He was physical on every shift looking to lay some hits each time down the ice.

Is this his game or are we seeing youthful enthusiasm combined with wanting to stay on the big club?

He isn't a head hunter but

He isn't a head hunter but he will finish his checks when it is important to do so. He plays a very well rounded game.
