Third Period

Steven Stamkos 0 shots on goal. I rest my case. The coaching staff needs to get on Steven hard to shoot the puck more. If I was Tocchet I'd tell Lecavalier, Stamkos, and St. Louis the first one to 5 shots in the next game gets $500.

Zenon Konopka was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 8:57 and was 50% on draws.

Paul Szczechura had 1 shot, 1 hit, and was 80% on draws in 13:17.

James Wright had 2 shots and was 50% on draws in 13:38.

Victor Hedman was -1 with 2 hits in 19:11.
