Roloson, Steven Stamkos, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars. It wasn't the prettiest thing, getting outshot 30-22 by Columbus and the Lightning looked a little disjointed with new-look line combinations and a new-look power play with d-men involved to try to cut down on shorthanded goals allowed, but the team made it work. Color me extremely happy to hear Victor Hedman is likely to get more power play time in the coming weeks. Victor's got a couple of more big hurdles to meeting his potential of being a number one NHL defenseman, and learning how to contribute on the power play is one of them. The only way you learn is to get the time, though.
The Lightning move one point up on Washington in the Southeast Division.
