blocked one shot in 8:44. Eric Perrin
was -1 with 1 block in 12:36. Tarnasky was +1 in 3:39 with 4 penalty minutes.
It cannot be underestimated how important it was for Brad Richards to finally score a goal or what a great omen it is for "the big three" to all get goals tonight. The Lightning should be going into these upcoming games against Carolina confident and ready to prove they've got a legitimate contender for the division title this year.
