Morgan Cey deserved better from the team in front of him. JHN-4 LV-5 (SO) Morgan Cey made a mind boggling 54 saves in this contest before falling in the shootout. Listening to the streaming broadcast, it was very interesting to me how the young Lightning prospects other than Cey and Toffey really struggled to make an impact in this game. Perhaps the travel or, worse, the place they traveled to (Sin City) factored into their performance. Toffey had a goal and an assist. Veteran Randy Rowe had 2 goals including the tying goal with just seconds left in regulation. Game sheet from [url=http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/ppublic.cgi?action=summary&id=2474]ECHL.com.[/url]
