    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/26/12 — Martin St. Louis

    One season after reaching the Eastern Conference finals and coming one win away from playing in the Stanley Cup finals, the Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves on the outside of the playoffs looking in with exactly 20 games remaining in the 2011-12 NHL season.  And with the 8th-place Winnipeg Jets only six points ahead with […]

    No matter how many goals you have or where you rank among all NHLers in goal scoring, you are never safe from the Tampa Bay tradition of getting a face full of shaving cream on your birthday.  Steve Downie and Ryan Malone proved this yesterday morning when they shared their foamy gift with the NHL’s […]

    Lightning Mascot Mixes It Up With Bruins Fan (Video)

    Oftentimes when we see a mascot fight a fan of the opposing team, the entire act is staged and intended for nothing more than to provide the fans in attendance with an extra bit of entertainment.  Some may have figured that was what they were watching unfold during Tuesday night’s game between the Boston Bruins […]

    New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov was guilty of letting his emotions get the better of him following a short-handed goal last night, and the Tampa Bay players were guilty of much of the same following Anisimov’s ensuing celebration. After handing the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period, Anisimov turned towards Lightning goaltender […]

    No one is a fan of the 1-3-1 neutral zone trap in hockey.  Not the fans.  Not the media.  And certainly not the Philadelphia Flyers.  That was evident during last night’s game between the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, as it didn’t take long for the trap to take over. Less than one minute […]

    NBC’s Stanley Cup Finals Commercial Is The Ultimate Fail! (Video)

    The Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins are set to kick off their Stanley Cup Finals series in about 30 minutes.  Someone should probably tell that to the people at NBC, who still seem to think that the Tampa Bay Lightning were victorious in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, according to this commercial […]

    Nathan Horton and the Boston Bruins didn’t have an answer for the Tampa Bay Lightning players during Game 6 of their Easter Conference Finals series, but the Bruins’ forward did have an answer for the Lightning fans immediately following the final buzzer. Horton got caught up in a heated scrum with some Lightning players just […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/25/11 — Martin St. Louis

    Heading into Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, much of the focus was on the lack of production from Tampa Bay’s “Big Three” of Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos and Vincent Lecavalier.  In their previous three games, they have combined for one goal (an empty netter) and two assists, which is clearly not good […]

    One save can often be the difference between winning or losing.  In the case of Tim Thomas‘ stick save on Steve Downie during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night, it may prove to be the difference between a Stanley Cup and elimination. With the Bruins leading 2-1 midway through the third period, […]

    Entering their second round series against the Washington Capitals, the Tampa Bay Lightning would have been pleased to come away with a split in the first two games at the Verizon Center.  However, after winning Game 1 by a score of 4-2, the Lightning’s plans for the first two games quickly changed from split to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/27/11 — Dwayne Roloson

    After trailing their best-of-seven opening round series 3-1, the Tampa Bay Lightning were able to force a Game 7 and were suddenly one win away from advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since they raised the Stanley Cup in 2004.  Winning a do-or-die game on the road at the […]
