NHL Game Night 11/7: Panthers at Lightning

The streak is over. Lets start a winning one.


Johan Holmqvist stopped 22 of 23 shots faced for the win.

First Period
Tampa Bay 1:48, Jan Hlavac 2 (Brad Richards, Paul Ranger)
Tampa Bay 6:37, Martin St. Louis 4 (Vincent Lecavalier)

Second Period
Florida 8:46, Kamil Kreps 1 (Mike Van Ryn)

Third Period
Tampa Bay 19:02, Vincent Lecavalier 8 (empty net) (Vaclav Prospal, Paul Ranger)

Give credit to Panthers netminder Tomas Vokoun. The score could've easily been 6 or 7-1 had he not played so well.

Paul Ranger continues to quietly evolve in the role of #1 defenseman with Dan Boyle out.

Mike Lundin was -1 in 11:13 with 1 blocked shot.

Mathieu Darche was back in the lineup after being scratched for three games and played 9:06 with 1 shot and 3 hits. His energy is noticable whenever he's on the rink.
