Looks like you guys who watched the Lightning game tonight had a much better time than I did.
Johan Holmqvist stopped 18 of 20 shots faced for the win.

Ouch. And head coach Stefan Walby waited two years for this? Mississippi was 0 for 4 on the power play and allowed a short-handed goal. Meanwhile the Sea Wolves PK was 5 of 8.
Ex-Lightning prospect Morgan Cey torched for 6 goals on 42 shots, but 4 of the 6 goals were scored by the Florida special teams.
With 3-1/2 minutes left, Brandon Elliot was tagged with the 2-5-10 (Roughing, FM, GM) in an attempt to save the Wolves a bit of face.
Strong nights by the usual suspects in the WHL.
