Game Night 4/14: Lightning at Hurricanes

The magic number is 3. TB-4 CAR-5 (SO) Sean Burke stopped 17 of 21 before losing in the shootout. [url=paul-ranger]Paul Ranger[/url] had 2 assists in the game including one on a beautiful Martin St. Louis shorthanded goal from Vincent Lecavalier. [url=ryan-craig]Ryan Craig[/url] led all rookies in ice time at 16:55 with 1 shot on goal. Ranger was +2 in 15:38 with 2 shots and 1 blocked shot. [url=evgeny-artyukhin]Evgeny Artyukhin[/url] was an undisciplined mess taking two minor penalties in 3:31 with 4 hits. The Lightning still control their destiny with 2 games left to play. They hold a 3 point lead over 9th place Atlanta and a 4 point lead over 10th place Toronto going into tomorrow night's rematch with Carolina. Both Atlanta and Toronto now hold a game in hand. A win tomorrow night and an Atlanta *tie* or loss would seal a playoff berth. Positive thinking. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS021196.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]

[url=ryan-craig]Ryan Craig[/url] recorded his 12th assist of the season on Dimitry Afanasenkov's game opening goal. It was all downhill from there.

[url=evgeny-artyukhin]Evgeny Artyukhin[/url] was -1 in 8:22 with 2 shots, 4 hits and 1 blocked shot. Post mortem at [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS021174.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]

Game Night 4/6: Thrashers at Lightning

The Lightning had an opportunity to put the stake completely through the Thrashers' heart tonight. They only managed to drive the stake halfway through. ATL-2 TB-3 (SO) It was Sean Burke versus Mike Dunham in a matchup of the two slowest goaltenders in the league. Burke stopped 29 of 31 before stopping 2 of 3 in penalty shots. This I know for certain: Brad Richards is money in shootouts. Ryan Craig scored the 15th goal of his rookie season on the power play. Pavel Kubina's return tonight pushes Timo Helbling out of the lineup. Paul Ranger played 18:41 with 1 shot and 4 blocked shots. Craig was -1 in 15:37 with 4 shots and 1 block. Evgeny Artyukhin played 5:19 with 1 hit. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS021136.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]
