NHL Game Night: 3-26-12 Lightning at Flyers

"Waterboys" beat varsity.


Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 38 shots for the win. He sparkled for much of the game, including a key stop in the dying seconds to preserve the win. He sparkled so much, we forgive the softie on Philly's third goal.

Roloson and Martin St. Louis were the game's first an second star.

That's what you get. Pierre McGuire reported that the Flyers were mocking one of the young Lightning callups as a waterboy. That's what you get. This Lightning team is now 2 games over .500, and they've still got the goal of a winning record to play for. Call ups or no, that's what they're going for. The right to call themselves winners.

Keith Aulie was -2 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 9:12. He was dreadful tonight. Dreadful. I feel like I'm watching all the slow footedness of Matt Smaby without the open ice aggression.

Trevor Smith had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 12:38.

J.T. Wyman got a gift goal and had 1 shot in 14:31.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie was -2 with 1 shot and 3 blocked shots in 7:27.
