Seattle goaltender Jacob DeSerras was the game's third star. Helenius has two starts since February 13th (1-1), whereas DeSerras has six (4-1 and 1 no decision). According tot he Lightning, Helenius is battling a sprained knee.
Love the win, but can the Lightning defer the points in the standings?
Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 25 shots to collect his first win in a Lightning uniform.

Contributions from all the new acquisitions tonight. The Captain, Alexandre Picard, got his first goal for the Lightning and Jeff Halpern and Jussi Jokinen had helpers.
If the Lightning can just find a way to get Stamkos this June, I think they're going to be alright.
In the words of Rob Schneider from Waterboy, "Oh no, we suck again."
Marc Denis allowed 6 goals on 41 shots for the loss.

I feel bad for Steve Stirling. Every time he gets this team tuned up right, they shuffle the deck on him.
