The Lightning torched the Thrashers young goaltenders as Nick Tarnasky
and Evgeny Artyukhin
made quiet NHL debuts each with just under 8 minutes of ice time a piece. Paul Ranger
continued to settle into his job as the Lightning's #6 defenseman getting over 15 minutes of ice time and rating a +2 before receiving a vicious cheap shot elbow from a Thrasher forechecker. Vinny Lecavalier with a 4 point night.
I hope a certain so-called editor from Hockey's Future enjoyed the game. [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020100.HTM]I know I did.[/url]
You always count yourself lucky when you go toe to toe with a legitimate marquee prospect like Garnett Exelby ::sarcasm dripping::
