NHL Game Night 1/9: Penguins at Lightning

Did I just hear that right? 11 straight wins against the Penguins?

PIT-2
TB-3

Johan Holmqvist stopped 29 of 31 shots faced for the win. Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier each had 1 goal and 1 assist by the game winning goal was potted by The Secret Weapon 2, Andreas Karlsson. Vaclav Prospal and Dan Boyle registered individual assists.

The win moves the Lightning back to .500 at 21-21-2, good for 44 points and putting the Lightning now just 1 point behind Washington for 8th in the Eastern Conference. Next up: a "ginormous" tilt with the Capitals at home.

What a difference a little goaltending and an occassional goal from a checking liner makes.

First Period
Pittsburgh 0:24, Sidney Crosby 21 (unassisted)
Tampa Bay 6:11, Vincent Lecavalier 24 (Vaclav Prospal, Martin St. Louis)

Second Period
Tampa Bay 6:46, Martin St. Louis 27 (power play) (Vincent Lecavalier, Dan Boyle)
