"And with the 14th pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft the Tampa Bay Lightning select..."
Sean Burke actually played well the first two period before the flood gates opened. He allowed 5 goals on 30 shots in total. Honestly, I don't know what more there is to say right now. The cavalry isn't coming. The deadline's passed and Coleman, Boutin, O'Brien and Dicaire are probably too green to help shore up this club. What's worse than the defense and goaltending though is that the Lightning's forwards are showing themselves to again be incapable of scoring timely goals. Completely incapable. And if you're defense isn't going to be solid every night, you'd better get those timely goals.
70 points with 18 games left and a 4 point lead on 9th place. Is anybody going to step up?
