The last five minutes of that game nearly gave me a coronary.

TB-3
MIN-2

Marc Denis stopped 29 of 31 shots and got some help from his friend Mr. Post to secure his 9th win of the season. Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier each had 1 goal and 1 assist while Paul Ranger escaped Chateau au Bow Wow to register 2 helpers in the game. Defenseman Dan Boyle scored the other Lightning goal. The Lightning pull into the halfway point of the season 1 game under .500 with 40 points and tonights victory will not stop trade winds from gusting.

On a site administrative note: with their 41st games played of the season Eric Perrin and Doug Janik have graduated from overage prospect status and will be moved into the Bolt Prospects Alumni section of the prospect page. Congratulations to both men on their success and proving they have what it takes to make it at hockey's highest level.
