NHL Game Night: 2-21-13 Bruins at Lightning

I hate Boston.

BOS-4
TB-2

Anders Lindback allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss. Really odd positioning on the backbreaking 4th goal going down in the butterfly on a puck that was shot well wide of the net. Clearly, he lost track of the puck. Not good.

First Period
01:11 BOS Horton (5), (Hamilton)
03:50 BOS Bergeron (3), (Marchand)
08:13 TB Stamkos (11), (Purcell, Bergeron)

Second Period
09:00 TB Conacher (6), (Purcell, Stamkos)
13:58 BOS Marchand (9), (Seguin, Bergeron)

Third Period
02:33 BOS Horton (6), (Chara, Hamilton)

Teddy Purcell was the game's second star.

It's been a troubling trend for the Lightning allowing themselves to get jumped on early in periods, and it's got to change.

Alex Killorn had 4 shots and 1 hit in 12:09. You know he had to really want to show out against Beantown.

Richard Panik was -2 with 2 hits in 9:05.

Cory Conacher had 1 goal, 2 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 18:32.

Crunch Complete Comeback in Shootout


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Dana Tyrell believes it was a bit of hockey karma.

His team trailing 3-2 with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, the Syracuse Crunch forward caught a break. The puck bounced behind the net, and despite many of the Toronto Marlies looking for the puck in the corner, Tyrell found it on his stick.

"I think it went up my pants. To be honest, I'm not really sure what happened," Tyrell said. "I was forechecking the puck down - hunting it down - and it bounced up somewhere. I think it got caught up in my gear somewhere. As I was coming around the net, it dropped down in front of me and I had an open net.

"If we work hard as a team, we're going to get bounces like that," he added.

Tyrell's goal sent the game to overtime and the Crunch completed the comeback in the shootout, topping the Marlies 4-3 at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday night. Syracuse has shrugged its slump that lasted from late January into early February, winning its last five games.
