NHL Game Night 10/29: Lightning at Rangers

OK, I'm officially concerned with how the team is performing on the road.


Johan Holmqvist played well stopping 32 of 35 shots in the loss, although he had the benefit of several posts and crossbars.

First Period
NY Rangers 7:40, Nigel Dawes 3 (Paul Mara, Brendan Shanahan)

Second Period
Tampa Bay 6:28, Vincent Lecavalier 6 (penalty shot)

Third Period
NY Rangers 10:45, Jaromir Jagr 3 (power play) (Michal Rozsival, Chris Drury)
NY Rangers 13:29, Brendan Shanahan 2 (power play) (Chris Drury, Jaromir Jagr)

The Lightning were outshot 35-22 and looked slow, flat, and disorganized. It's been a common thread in all their road games this season. I smell a team meeting.

Mike Lundin played 15:15 with 1 shot on goal.

Mathieu Darche played 12:05 with 1 shot and 2 hits.

Dan Boyle played 11:38 with 1 hit in his return, primarily on the power play.
