Some days GameCenter just doesn't want to make things easy. So today's recap is brought to you by the complete fail of NHL GameCenter today. Didn't watch any of the game in real time, and since I had twitter on, the score was ruined for me by the time I got around to watching it.

To start off the night the Lightning showed off their now toy during the pre-game:

I think it works.

This is what it looks like in action:

Quick game thoughts:
  • Garon got his first shutout of the season and with the team
  • Stamkos played really well defensively
  • As expected the game was a tight defensive game, the Lightning still got 3 goals but shots were only 26 (Lighting) to 20 (Sabres)
  • In addition to being defensive, the Lightning didn't take a plethora of dumb penalties
  • The game was a sell out at 19,204

Here is a ridiculous goal by St. Louis


Next game is in Buffalo for the 2nd half of the home and home on Tuesday
