03:26 TB Tyrell (2), Jones (6), Thompson (6)
05:15 TB Stamkos (20), St Louis (19), Downie (8)

The Lightning absolutely dominated Boston for about 36 of the first 40 minutes, and outshot Boston 36-27 overall on the game, with a ton of chances. They could've scored another 8 like in Philly if not for the play of Tuukka Rask. That's a nice statement to make on national TV.
Mathieu Roy had 1 hit in 2:51. Nice work if you can get it.
Dana Tyrell had a goal and was +1 with 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 12:33. That was probably his best NHL game thus far, and not just because of the goal he got going into a high traffic area. His speed was evident, and he got himself another nice chance from the left wing circle he just shot wide with Rask screened. The most impressive thing I saw, though, was Tyrell almost knocked Zdeno Chara off the puck at one point after Steve Downie almost got killed trying to run at Chara. How strong is Dana Tyrell if he can move a mountain like Chara?
Blair Jones was scoreless in 6:01.
Expect moves to be made with Ritola coming off suspension and Gagne seemingly close to returning.
