Florida scored the game’s first five goals en route to a big road win in New Jersey. The only hiccup the ‘Blades had was when new Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche (pictured), obtained from the Red Wings in the Kyle Quincey/Steve Downie trade, received a major penalty for boarding and the Titans scored twice on that power play. Joe Palmer, recently acquired by Florida for goaltending help after Bolt prospect Pat Nagle was recalled to Norfolk, got his first win for Florida by stopping 24 of 26 shots. Palmer is a former Blackhawks fourth rounder and Ohio State Buckeye. Florida is in sole possession of seventh place in the East now, two points up on Cincinnati.
