NHL Game Night: 3-7-13 Jets at Lightning

Season keeps slipping away.

WPG-2
TB-1

Anders Lindback allowed 2 goals on 28 shots, but the 2 goals were very soft. Hard to blame the goaltender when he only gets 1 goal of support, but he didn't help, that's for sure.

First Period
10:05 WPG Tangradi (1), (unassisted)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
06:57 TB Stamkos (18), (St. Louis, Malone)
15:52 WPG Little (4), (Ladd)

Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

Frustrating game. The Lightning had well over 20 scoring chances against a backup netminder. Lots of power play chances. Against Winnipeg that should equal a pretty lopsided win for the Lightning. Games aren't played on paper, unfortunately.

Alex Killorn had 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 21:28. That's not a typo. Clearly the coaching staff believes in the young man.

Ondrej Palat was -1 with 2 hits in 11:31. Had the go-ahead goal off a feed from Conacher and slammed it off the post. Unfortunate.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 1 shot and 1 hit in 7:12.

Cory Conacher was -1 in 13:01. He's clearly been passed on the depth chart by Killorn at this point.

Defenseman Brent Henley scored the game-winner with just 26 seconds remaining in overtime to give Florida, which squandered a 4-1 lead it had built up over the course of the first two periods, a key victory that keeps the visitors in the hunt for the South Division title. Danick Gauthier, in his first game action after being assigned from Syracuse, scored the fourth goal for the Everblades midway through the second period after throwing the puck on net from the boards and getting a fortunate bounce off the opposing goalkeeper. Dan Milan pounced on loose rebound for his first goal in 32 games, which gave the visitors a 2-1 lead late in the first frame. Florida (30-20-10, 70 PTS) continues its four-game road trip Friday night against Fort Wayne (29-28-3, 61 PTS).
