For Vincent Lecavalier, that's now 9 straight seasons of 20 or more goals. Len Barrie, Oren Koules, Brian Lawton; come closer to the monitor. If you trade #4, Lightning Nation burns the Forum down. Capice?!

Steve Downie had 1 assist, 2 penalty minutes, and was +1 with 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 8:19. Slick, slick play on the Stamkos goal. Might a Stamkos/Schenn/Downie line be a future staple in Tampa Bay?

David Koci was +1 with 1 hit in 4:33.

Kevin Quick was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 9:50.
