NHL Game Night 10/10: Panthers at Lightning

3-0-0 is a great start. However, I was not impressed with the team's play tonight.

FLA-1
TB-2

Make no mistake about it, Johan Holmqvist stole the win tonight with a 30 saves on 31 shots effort that included multiple odd man rushes and breakaways. He got the win despite the Lightning being outshot 31-23 by an inferior opponent.

Tampa Bay 9:03, Chris Gratton 1 (shorthanded) (Mathieu Darche, Jason Ward)

Second Period
Florida 4:04, Ville Peltonen 1 (Olli Jokinen, Cory Murphy)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Karlsson Still on the Shelf

Damian Crisdotero reports on his blog that forward Andreas Karlsson will not make it back for Wednesday's game against Florida. It was anticipated that Karlsson, suffering from an abdominal strain, might be back for the front end of the two game set against the Panthers but it does not appear to be in the cards.

Condolences to Admirals fans as it looks like Norfolk won't get Mathieu Darche back in time for their upcoming game this Friday against Bridgeport. Norfolk has three games in three nights this weekend, including a grudge match in Springfield on Sunday afternoon.
