You can now return to watching the Super/Puppy/Kitten/Lingerie Bowl of your choice, thanks to #4.
Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the victory. I thought the point shot goal he allowed to Nikitin was a little soft, but he stopped over 90% of the shots he faced and that's a good start for your backup to give you.

Steven Stamkos and Steve Downie were the game's first and second stars.
Be afraid NHL, be very afraid. That goal horn with 6.7 seconds left in overtime may have been the sound of the floodgates opening for one Vincent Lecavalier. If #4 gets going, and Gagne keeps going, and Downie gets going too? Oh baby, the Lightning are going to be a difficult out in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.
Marc-Andre Bergeron paid immediate dividends with a pair of assists in his first game in a Lightning uniform, including the blast on the overtime winner that yielded the rebound that Lecavalier calmly potted to win the game.
Meanwhile, quietly, Steven Stamkos scored his 40th goal of the season and had assists in triplicate. That's your league leader in goals and points, and he doesn't turn 21 until tomorrow. Happy Birthday #91. Remember, the important thing is not whether he's as good as Crosby or Ovechkin today, the important thing is that he's not even old enough to drink a beer until tomorrow. How good is this young man going to be in 2-1/2 years when he's the same age as Crosby is now? That's the point. The fact he's even in the conversation already, at 20 years old, is the remarkable thing. If he stays healthy, I'd be shocked if anyone can catch him for his second straight Richard Trophy, considering he holds an 8 goal advantage on a hurt Crosby. So, now the prize is the scoring title, where he holds a slimmer 3 point lead right now on Daniel Sedin.
