NHL Game Night: 1-21-12 Lightning at Coyotes
I'd like to thank Mike Smith for still being Mike Smith.
Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the rare win.

The Lightning didn't have nearly the jump they had last night against Dallas, but they didn't require quite the same effort against Mike Smith, who allowed 4 goals on just 21 shots, including the gift to Steve Downie that ended up being the winner.
Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 7:18.
Trevor Smith had a beautiful assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 8:25. His saucer pass to Martin St. Louis to spring him on his breakaway goal was a breathtaking little display of skill. Nice.
Pierre-Cedric Labrie had his first NHL point on an assist and he was +1 with 3 shots in 6:30. You get the feeling he's quickly becoming sort of the unofficial team mascot. It's hard not to root for the guy.
