This was the first game where Szczechura was kind of a non-factor. He had a real opportunity to send Ryan Craig in on a breakaway when a Thrashers defenseman overplayed him on a 2-on-1. Other than that? Very little.

Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and 2 hits in 11:54.

Steven Stamkos had an assist and 1 hit and was 67% on draws in 13:22.
