The natural balance of the universe reestablished as this loss almost certainly seals the Panthers' place in the draft lottery.
Sean Burke stopped 29 of 30 shots faced in the victory. Vicent Lecavalier carried the Lightning with 2 goals and an assist while Fredrik Modin hit a milestone with his 30th goal of the season. With his 41st NHL game, Ryan Craig
also graduated from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.
was a very nice +3 in 21:00 of ice time with 3 shots and one block. Ryan Craig was -1 in 16:16 with 4 shots, 1 hit and 1 block. Timo Helbling played just 2:18 with 1 hit but he wasn't the low man in ice time because Evgeny Artyukhin
received just 2:06 of ice time with 1 shot on goal. Both players were even. Helbling's ice time was cut with the return of Dan Boyle to the lineup which forced Doug O'Brien
out of the game sheet altogether.
