NHL Game Night: 3-29-12 Lightning at Devils

Hard to waste a hat trick.

TB-4
NJ-6

Dwayne Roloson allowed 6 goals on 34 shots for the loss before giving way to Sebastien Caron who stopped all 4 shots he faced the rest of the way.

First Period
TB Malone (16), (Stamkos, Hedman), 19:16

Second Period
NJ Zubrus (17), (Elias)(SH), 3:07
TB Malone (17), (Brewer), 4:40

NJ Kovalchuk (33), (Henrique, Parise), 13:26

Third Period
NJ Ponikarovsky (13), (Salvador), 2:25
NJ Clarkson (29), (Ponikarovsky, Henrique), 6:05
TB Smith (2), (Wallace, Aulie), 19:51

Ryan Malone was the game's second star. Good for him to give himself a fighting chance to get to 20 goals by the season's end.

It's good to have Vincent Lecavalier back.

As of this minute, the Lightning would pick 9th, but they're in a 4-way tie with Anaheim, the Islanders, and Carolina at 77 points. So, they could easily be in 6th position soon, and they're just 2 points ahead of Toronto, which would pick 5th. There's a certain defenseman from Red Deer I think is going 4th or 5th, at the latest, in this draft. So, while losing stinks, it might be for a good purpose.

Keith Aulie had a helper and 2 hits in 11:58.

Trevor Smith had a goal, 1 shot, and 2 hits in 16:01.

J.T. Wyman had 2 hits in 16:56. Smith and Wyman are legitimate contenders, along with about a half dozen other forwards, for a spare number of spots on the Lightning in camp next season, in my opinion. We'll see another contender, J.T. Brown, make his debut this weekend.

NHL Game Night: 3-26-12 Lightning at Flyers

"Waterboys" beat varsity.

TB-5
PHI-3

Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 38 shots for the win. He sparkled for much of the game, including a key stop in the dying seconds to preserve the win. He sparkled so much, we forgive the softie on Philly's third goal.

First Period
TB Malone (15), (Smith)(SH), 8:08
TB Stamkos (52), (St. Louis, Purcell)(PP), 19:58

Roloson and Martin St. Louis were the game's first an second star.

That's what you get. Pierre McGuire reported that the Flyers were mocking one of the young Lightning callups as a waterboy. That's what you get. This Lightning team is now 2 games over .500, and they've still got the goal of a winning record to play for. Call ups or no, that's what they're going for. The right to call themselves winners.

Keith Aulie was -2 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 9:12. He was dreadful tonight. Dreadful. I feel like I'm watching all the slow footedness of Matt Smaby without the open ice aggression.

Trevor Smith had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 12:38.

J.T. Wyman got a gift goal and had 1 shot in 14:31.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie was -2 with 1 shot and 3 blocked shots in 7:27.

Steven Stamkos and Dwayne Roloson were the game's first and second stars, but it was Tim "William" Wallace who led the team to victory with the big, game winning goal.

For a team that's going to be playing golf in 8 more games, they're playing hard and they're having fun. That's a testament to their professionalism and their respect and love for the game. It bodes well for next season, even if it's messing up my dreams of getting a certain Red Deer defenseman in a Lightning jersey.

Keith Aulie had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 10:10.

Trevor Smith had 2 shots and 1 hit in 14:17.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie had a helper and was +1 with 4 hits and 1 blocked shot in 8:23. Defensively responsible? Hits everything that moves? Occasionally chips in offensively? He'll beat someone up, too, if he has to. What more do you want from a fourth liner? I love the big guy.

Roloson and Tom Pyatt were the game's first and second stars.

Belated congratulations to Tim Wallace, who graduated from Bolt Prospects prospect status in the Buffalo debacle.

Keith Aulie was +1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 11:53. Made a great diving play to nullify a breakaway. Probably his best game in a Lightning jersey.
