NHL Game Night 11/4: Lightning at Bruins

The Lightning were hosed.

TB-5
BOS-6 (OT)

Marc Denis allowed 6 goals on 33 shots for the overtime loss. Denis is now 4-0-1 when the Lightning provide him 3 or more goals of support. Vincent Lecavalier led the Lightning attack with 4 assists and Martin St. Louis had 1 goal and 1 assist. Individual goals went to Afanasenkov, Alexeev, Fedotenko and Richards and individual assists went to Kuba, Prospal and Ranger.

If you ever needed proof the league office in Toronto favors their big market, northeastern traditional teams over their small market, southern expansion cousins, witness Zdeno Chara clearly knocking in the game tying goal with a high stick and after a full 10 minutes of review Toronto still blew the call. And, to add insult to injury, Filip Kuba was given a cross check to give Boston a 5-on-3 which they cashed in on in overtime to take the second point. Kudos to the otherwise attrocious Lightning penalty kill for managing to get out of regulation with a point despite being down two men. I won't sit here and say the Lightning played well (they didn't) in this game, but I do know the NHL robbed the team of a point tonight.

Boston 4:08, Marc Savard 3 (P.J. Axelsson, Glen Murray)
Tampa Bay 12:13, Ruslan Fedotenko 6 (power play) (Vaclav Prospal, Vincent Lecavalier)
