Game Night 10/26: Lightning at Devils

Hard to believe the Lightning actually trailed in this game early in the third. TB-6 NJ-3 Tarnasky and Artyukhin were effective in limited ice time. Artyukhin with his first NHL point assisting on Andreychuk's game winning goal. Paul Ranger returned with 13:57 of ice time, 1 takeaway, 3 giveaways, 2 blocked shots and a -1 rating. I thought he struggled a bit at times. It might be considered natural that he wasn't as aggressive as usual given what he's been through. Artyukhin and Tarnasky each got a shade under 5 and a half minutes of ice time, both +1, and Evgeny landed 2 hits on the game.

They could be joined in the lineup by defenseman Paul Ranger who returned to practice Monday after suffering a hairline jaw fracture and a concussion at the point of Eric Boulton's elbow in Atlanta.
