Oh dear, the bad Boutin showed up this weekend. BRI-5 SPR-2 Jonathan Boutin stopped just 16 of 21 shots faced squandering a 41-21 shot advantage by the Falcons. With Doug O'Brien being recalled to Tampa, Mike Egener returned to the lineup after missing two games due to suspension. He was even with 4 penalty minutes. Marek Kvapil scored his 17th goal of the season and Jason Jaspers his 24th, both on the power play. Assists came from Rohloff, Blatny and Milley among Lightning properties.
