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

    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 […]

    Tim Thomas Made The Save Of The Playoffs Last Night (Video)

    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, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/1/11 — Vincent Lecavalier

    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 […]

    Chris Conner’s Penalty Shot Was Awfully Embarrassing (Video)

    With his Penguins trailing by a single goal midway through the second period of Game 6 last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Chris Conner found himself with the puck on his stick and no one between himself and Lightning goaltender Dwayne Roloson.  Unfortunately for him, that puck wouldn’t stay on his stick for quite […]

    Battle Of The Great Stick Saves: Roloson vs. High School Kid (Videos)

    In the Red corner we have Tampa Bay goaltender Dwayne Roloson, who made this incredible diving stick save after the puck deflected off the skate of his own defenseman during last night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.  The save helped keep the game scoreless with over five minutes remaining in the first period.  Roloson and […]

    Martin St. Louis Scores An Awe-Inspiring Shootout Goal (Video)

    With the likes of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Marin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos all suited up for last night’s meeting between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning, there was certainly no shortage of offensive firepower on display (we didn’t even mention Patrick Sharp or Vincent Lecavalier). As a result, one […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/23/11 — Vincent Lecavalier

    The Phoenix Coyotes entered last night’s game in Tampa Bay riding an eight-game winning streak.  They left with a one-game losing streak, and it wasn’t a pretty loss either. The Lightning took advantage of a Phoenix team that appeared to be tired one night after earning a tough overtime victory in Philadelphia, as they cruised […]

    Heading into the third period trailing the Tampa Bay Lightning by a goal on the road, few gave the Buffalo Sabres a realistic shot at completing the comeback against the Eastern Conference’s second place team.  Those who counted them out, however, couldn’t have been more surprised with what they would witness next. The Sabres were […]

    Dion Phaneuf Makes It Two Crushing Hits In Two Days (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf has been sending quite the message during his team’s road trip down south, and the only thing more amazing that the magnitude of his hits has been the fact that he has been able to deliver them within the opening 30 seconds of each game. On Monday night in […]

    Steven Stamkos Gives Us Hockey’s Worst Penalty Shot FAIL Ever! (Video)

    When New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk whiffed on a shot during a shootout earlier in the season, many of us thought to ourselves, “How can a superstar of his caliber fail so miserably during a one-on-one with the goalie?”  Seemingly attempting to answer that question, Steven Stamkos stepped up to the forefront last night […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

    It wasn’t the best of bouts, but with only one fight taking place in the NHL last night, we had no choice but to make this scrap between the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steve Downie and the Washington Capitals’ Matt Hendricks our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 4, 2011. Had Hendricks been […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/4/11 — Dwayne Roloson

    After struggling throughout December, many felt that a big win against the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Winter Classic on New Years Day was just what the Washington Capitals needed in order to turn things around.  Unfortunately for them, Dwayne Roloson wasn’t having any of that. After being acquired by the Tampa bay Lightning in a […]
