At long last, Tampa Bay is finally done with Columbus.
Curtis McElhinney allowed one goal on 25 shots for the win. Didn’t have a ton of work, but made a handful of key situational saves when called upon. Good rebound for a guy who got roughed up a couple of times recently.

I believe this is the last of what feels like a million games against Columbus this season. Thank God. I am so resentful of whoever in the league office put that team in the Lightning’s division. Not because they’re difficult to play against, because these games are so painfully boring they make me wish I was doing any one of a million different activities that are probably more enjoyable… like being waterboarded. They’re that bad to watch, and they drag whatever team they play against down into the gutter with them. Awful. Boring. Terrible. Bad.
Alex Barre-Boulet had 2 shots in 19:06. He gets chances. They don’t go in. He may be cursed.
Ross Colton had 1 shot and 2 hits in 10:33 and was 50% on 4 draws.
