Three games. Four goals. Not good. ATL-1 TB-0 Marc Denis got nothing for his 18 save on 19 shot effort tonight, and what is deeply concerning is not only are "the big three" not scoring but, with the exception of Martin St. Louis, they're not even getting chances. Hopefully the sieve-like Florida Panthers, which 55 minutes in has already allowed 44 shots to Toronto tonight, will be the balm the ailing Lightning offense needs.
