NHL Game Night: 12/15/10 Thrashers at Lightning
Finally Hedmania has come to the shootout.
Mike Smith took the first step in his emotional rehabilitation by stopping 27 of 28 shots he faced before going 4-for-4 in the shootout for the victory. He's not going to earn style points for the way he plays, but I'll take it.
13:56 ATL Peverley (8), Hainsey (3)(SH)
14:18 TB Bergenheim (6), Jones (9), Kubina (8)
Sean Bergenheim and Mike Smith were the game's first and third stars.
Vincent Lecavalier surprised everyone with his return tonight and had a pretty impressive first game back on the forecheck. That means the Lightning just need to get Steve Downie off IR to be back at full strength.
Dana Tyrell had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 13:37 tonight. I thought he struggled a bit relative to some of his other efforts at some of the finer details like passing the puck and getting it out at his own blueline.
