Panic button very close to being pushed... TB-2 FLA-3 In his first start in a Lightning jersey, overage prospect Johan Holmqvist stopped 24 of 27 shots faced for the loss. Goals were scored by Vincent Lecavalier and Bolt Prospects alumni [url=ryan-craig]Ryan Craig.[/url] The Lightning have yet to score 3 goals in a game this season. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20062007/GS020056.HTM]NHL.com[/url]. Doug Janik played 14:55 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot. Eric Perrin played 18:23 with 1 hit. [url=nick-tarnasky]Nick Tarnasky[/url] got just 4 shifts playing 1:34 with 1 hit.

Bolts latest -find a way to lose - fall guy is Holmqvist. Gets delay of game penalty called on himself and seconds later watches winning goal pass thru 5-whole. PP continues to suck - hard to watch !

According to TSNâ€™s â€œIce Chips,â€ former Lightning prospect and defenseman Andreas Holmqvist will return to Tampa this weekend and play goalie for the Lightning in one of their two games vs. Florida. This would seem like an odd move for the Lightning since they weren't happy with Andreas' work ethic when he was in North America a few years ago - and they signed Johan Holmqvist this summer from Sweden. Andreas had two assists in 10 games with Linkopings of the SEL before making this move across the ocean. Johan seemed to struggle a little in the late pre-season, but I don't think it was harsh enough to show him up like this.

Thru 3 games.... Big 3 combined goals = 0 (1 in SO) Big 3 combined +/- = -4 Big 3 combined salary = $20 mil Any questions ?

Three games. Four goals. Not good. ATL-1 TB-0 Marc Denis got nothing for his 18 save on 19 shot effort tonight, and what is deeply concerning is not only are "the big three" not scoring but, with the exception of Martin St. Louis, they're not even getting chances. Hopefully the sieve-like Florida Panthers, which 55 minutes in has already allowed 44 shots to Toronto tonight, will be the balm the ailing Lightning offense needs.
