    Lightning Almost Choke Away a Win With This Embarrassing Own Goal (Video)

    Last night, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the  Blackhawks 6-5 in overtime—in Chicago—moving to a very solid 6-3-0 on the year. For a team that missed the playoffs last year, you would think this makes them very happy. And ultimately it probably does. However, I’m sure Lightning brass would have preferred that the game didn’t go to […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/4/2013 — Ben Bishop

    The Tamp Bay Lightning’s primary objective during this year’s NHL trade deadline was to improve their goaltending.  As a result, they traded away Rookie of the Year candidate Cory Conacher and a fourth-round draft pick to acquire Ben Bishop from the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday. That move would pay immediate dividends for Tampa, as Bishop […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    With no wins in their last five game and just one win in their last eight, nothing seems to be able to motivate the Montreal Canadiens players these days.  Not even an inspirational fight, like the one Brad Staubitz provided them with when he laid a beating on Pierre-Cedric Labrie during last night’s game against […]

    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 […]

    Tempers Flare Following Artem Anisimov’s Goal Celebration (Video)

    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 […]

    Flyers Mock The Lightning’s Defensive Trap (Video)

    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 […]
