It was going to be Brett Connolly watch, but the news just broke via @AlBristowe that he's staying up with the big club.

Really thrilled to hear that he'll be staying with the Lightning. But this is just the first hurdle for him, as now he faces 73 more games of this night in an night out. Still, this is huge for Connolly. It shows how his hard work and determination to remain with the club is paying off.


As for tonight
  • Mathieu Garon is on a 3 game win streak, tonight making his third consecutive start with 36 saves
  • Ryan Miller let in 4 goals on 23 shots
  • The Lightning battled back from being down 2-0 in the 1st period
  • It was a bit of a messy game, lots of breakaways given up
  • Lecavalier got his 800th point of his NHL career
  • Lecavalier was nailed by Regehr
  • Stick taps to Malone for standing up for Cappy
  • Matt Gilroy is gaining minutes playing 15:22 tonight
  • Huge goal by Malone in the 3rd
