Wasted a great effort by Grahame.
Grahame stopped 27 of 29 in the loss. Defenseman Pavel Kubina
was injured on a Craig Adams hit leaving the Lightning with just four of their regular defensemen. Doug O'Brien
played better in his third NHL game than in his previous callup, but is struggling still with the size/strength of the NHL, in my opinion. Paul Ranger
played 26:13 of even hockey with 3 shots on goal, 1 hit and 3 blocked shots. As injuries have led to an increase in his ice time, Ranger has responded. Ryan Craig
played 19:21 of even hockey with 1 shot and 1 hit. O'Brien played 12:24 of even hockey with 1 shot and 1 block. Evgeny Artyukhin
was even in 7:38 with 2 shots and 2 hits.
