Marc Denis is 4-0-0 when the Lightning give him 3 or more goals of support.
Denis stopped 23 of 24 shots faced as the Lightning pasted the defending champs by the same score Carolina defeated the Lightning by two weeks ago. Revenge is sweet. Martin St. Louis
had a second period natural hat trick to lead the way. Ruslan Fedotenko had a goal and an assist and Brad Richards
, Filip Kuba
and [url=paul-ranger]Paul Ranger

and individual helpers went to Cory Sarich and Dan Boyle.
