Mike Smith was in net and Riku Helenius was the backup. Yes it was a scary thought, but Smith pulled out a huge with for the Lightning tonight. I didn't catch the whole game as I've been a little sick and the thought of listening to Mishkin yell into my laptop did not sound appealing, so only a few quick thoughts from the recap I saw.

  • Lecavalier had 3 assists and was a +3 tonight
  • Mike Lundin who was just recalled from Norfolk got 1 goal and was a +2
  • Steve Downie had 1 goal and 1 assist, but it's still hard for me to think of him as an offensive winger
  • This was a huge win since they got the win in regulation instead of making this a 3 point game to a SE division opponent
