NHL Game Night: 2-14-13 Capitals at Lightning

I expected more after the comeback in the Canadiens game.

WSH-4
TB-3

Mathieu Garon allowed 4 goals on 39 shots for the loss. Far be it from me to question Guy Boucher, but at this point I'd be strapping a saddle to Anders Lindback and riding him the rest of the season.

First Period
02:40 WSH Brouwer (7), (Perrault, Backstrom)(PP)
08:23 TB St. Louis (4), (Pouliot, Lecavalier)

Second Period
05:09 WSH Fehr (2), (Perrault, Ward)

Third Period
02:22 WSH Fehr (3), (Perrault, Carlson)
07:29 WSH Beagle (1), (Schultz, Kundratek)
12:02 TB Purcell (3), (Stamkos)
16:47 TB Thompson (3), (St. Louis)

Nate Thompson was the game's third star.

Alex Killorn was -1 with 1 hit in 10:25.

Richard Panik was -1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 8:32.

Cory Conacher was -2 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 16:56.

Florida rallied back after falling behind 2-0 in the first minute of the second period but South Carolina scored late in the third period to earn its third-straight victory and pull within a point of the visiting Everblades in the South division standings. After going scoreless over the past six games, Dan Milan registered a secondary assist on Brody Sutter's second-period goal which tied the game heading into the final frame. Pat Nagle is now 1-1 with a shootout loss in five February appearances. Florida (24-17-9, 57 PTS) continues its road trip against Greenville (29-17-5, 63 PTS) on Friday night.
