NHL Game Night: 12/2/10 Lightning at Bruins
Boston has always been hell for the Lightning.
Mike Smith allowed 5 goals on 22 shots for the loss before giving way to Dan Ellis, who allowed 3 on 10 shots. Honest question: is Mike Smith damaged goods? Physically, mentally, and emotionally, is he damaged goods? He allowed a goal from outside the blueline by leaving soon on a shoot in and misplayed a puck behind his net that led to another goal. He was never mentally tough even before his concussion problems, often overreacting to bad breaks. Where is Smitty's psyche now?

Dana Tyrell had 2 shots in 15:06. If you can finish even in a game where your team gets whipped 8-1, you've done alright as a lower liner, in my opinion.
