Martin St. Louis
Tampa Bay Lightning
TAMPA -- Martin St. Louis and Eric Brewer each scored two goals, and rookie Cory Conacher had a goal and assist in his first NHL game on Saturday, as the Tampa Bay Lightning opened the season with a 6-3 win over their Southeast Division rival Washington Capitals. The Capitals collapsed in allowing three third-period goals in the first game under head coach Adam Oates. St. Louis' score with 15 minutes, three seconds left in the game on a 5-on-3 opportunity gave the Lightning a one-goal lead before the American Hockey League Player of the year added his first career goal. He had notched an assist earlier. Washington produced the initial seven shots of the game behind two early power plays, but the Lightning took a 1-0 lead when defenseman Eric Brewer put Tampa Bay's first shot of the season over goaltender Braden Holtby's glove from the left side at 6:24 of the first period. Brewer, who had not scored in 50 games, was assisted by Matthew Carle and Martin St. Louis. ...

TAMPA -- Eric Brewer hadn't scored two goals in a game since 2004 or even reached the net once in 50 games. But the Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman's two scores not only bookended a 6-3 season-opening win over the Southeast Division rival Washington Capitals on Saturday, it had him thinking about leveraging his fortune while it lasted. First, he said he would remind teammate...

The other day, I noted that there were just too many new faces on this Caps’ team and not enough time for them to learn a new system. Tonight, it seemed truer than I ever thought it was as they were doubled up by the Tampa Bay Lighting 6-3. Let’s get to the notes and breakdown.

This was really unfortunate for the Caps...
The NHL lockout didn’t seem to slow down the Lightning Saturday night. Martin St. Louis and Eric Brewer scored two goals each to help the Bolts get past the Washington Capitals 6-3 on opening night. Three of the Lightning’s six goals came via the power play, two of those three were Martin St. Louis’ goals. The power play units were an area Tampa Bay focused to improve on...
TAMPA, Fla. This ride has been a winning lottery ticket. There are few other ways to describe Tampa Bay Lightning center Vincent Lecavaliers career. Perhaps a pot of gold. A four-leaf clover. Triple sevens. A shooting star across a clear night sky.
How else to explain a 13-season career, all with the Lightning, that will reach its 1,000th game when Tampa Bay plays at the New York...
The Tampa Bay Lightning reassigned forwards Mike Angelidis, J.T. Wyman and Kyle Wilson to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League on Friday to get down to the roster limit of 23 before the season opener. The Lightning open at home against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.
TAMPA, Fla. -- A prolonged winter ended with a pleasing thaw.
Approach this uncommon Opening Night at Tampa Bay Times Forum however you wish: A time to heal, a chance to cling to a cold shoulder, an opportunity to move beyond an inexplicable 113-day lockout but remain wary about the NHL's direction.
Whichever path is chosen, the pavement is similar. It's imperfect. It...

After a lackluster performance in 2011-12, the Tampa Bay Lightning are seeking to get this season off to a better start.
The Lightning will try to keep their early momentum going Monday by avoiding another road loss to the New York Islanders, who are hoping to have coach Jack Capuano back on the bench.
Tampa Bay finished with 103 points in 2010-11, the second-most in franchise...
Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier played his 1,000th game today against the New York Islanders. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay could not find a defensive answer and a late offensive surge was not enough as they fall to the Isles 4-3. The Islanders were out in front 4-0 in the third period before the Lightning can even put a legitimate offensive threat together. Martin St. Louis got the...
