They fell asleep in the second half of the second period, but other than that it was a very solid, workmanlike effort by the Lightning. It was actually pretty phenomenal considering the team only dressed five defenseman, and one of them played under a dozen minutes.

Paul Szczechura had 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and was 33% on draws in 11:54.
