That's a bitter, bitter pill to swallow.
The Lightning blow a two goal lead allowing a goal late in the second period and then Daniel Alfredsson's game winning goal with 7 seconds left in regulation. A win would've put the Lightning into a tie for 6th in the conference with New Jersey. How quickly fortunes change.
John Grahame stopped 27 of 31 shots faced in the loss. Evgeny Artyukhin
got his 13th assist of the season on a Dimitry Afanasenkov goal.
played 16:30 of even hockey with 1 shot on goal and 2 hits. Paul Ranger
played 14:36 and was +1. Evgeny Artyukhin was +1 in 10:53 of ice time with 1 shot and 2 hits. Nick Tarnasky
remained out of the lineup with an injury.
