TB-2

Marc Denis stopped 24 of 27 shots faced in the loss. Lightning goals came from Vincent Lecavalier and Dan Boyle with individual assists belonging to Martin St. Louis, Cory Sarich, Ruslan Fedotenko and Brad Richards.

The team deserved better. They absolutely dominated the first 40 minutes of the game but Andrew Raycroft stood on his head and although they were running out of steam on the tail end of the back to back in the third period, they looked to have at least a point in hand before the lucky play that saw a scuffed shot by Stajan become an easy game winning goal.
