The Bay Cave:
The Toronto Maple Leafs limited the Lightning shots for most of the game. But the Bolts scored four goals in route to a 4-2 win. Vinny Levalier put the Lightning out in front 1-0 in the first period after taking the pass from Benoit Pouliot. Almost 10 minutes later, Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski tied it after putting the rebound past Anders Lindback. Steven Stamkos would put the Bolts back up 2-1 after Pouliot fought for the puck behind the Maple Leafs’ net. Cory Conacher would get the puck and find Stamkos in front for the goal. Tampa Bay would add two more in the third period and Toronto’s attempt of a comeback fell short with one goal on the empty net man advantage. The Lightning only put 19 shots on goal. Lindback made 23 saves on 25 shots faced. The post Lightning all over the Leafs in 4-2 win appeared first on The Bay Cave.

TAMPA, Fla. Early in each Tampa Bay Lightning home game, Elizabeth Frazier takes a moment to reflect. Play stops during the second timeout of the first period, and the crowd at Tampa Bay Times Forum meets a hero whose impact goes well beyond the ice.
This is the second year of the Lightning Community Hero Program, a philanthropic effort by Tampa Bays NHL franchise that, beginning...

Randy Carlyle isn’t afraid to put his stamp on the Toronto Maple Leafs.
He has benched John-Michael Liles and Mike Komisarek.
He sent Jake Gardiner to the American Hockey League. He’s been playing rookie defencemen Mike Kostka and Mark Fraser big minutes.
He’s returned Nazem Kadri to centre, who has excelled on centering the 3rd...
It’s not like this Mike Brown vs B.J. Crombeen fight during last night’s Maple Leafs-Lightning game was crazy good. Crombeen lands a c0uple nice rights and Brown gets in a decent cheap shot when the linesmen skate in to break it up.
The real story here is the camera angle for this scrap. You must hand it to Sun Sports, sister channel to Fox Sports Florida, for the production...
The Toronto Maple Leafs were able to handle the Florida Panthers, but were unable to handle the Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
“I don’t know if we demonstrated enough determination or desperation until the last seven minutes of the game,” said Leaf’s head coach, Randy Carlyle in a press conference after the 4-2 loss. ”It seemed we were a flat group for...
Steven Stamkos is good at hockey, and he seems intent on reminding the Bruins of that fact time and time again.
The Tampa Bay forward scored in the first period of this one, giving him six goals in the last four games he’s faces the Bruins. For his career, the 23-year-old is a point-per-game player against Boston — no easy feat considering how much the B’s focus on their defense...

Goalie stats pulled from Monday February 11, 2013 through Sunday February 17, 2013.
1. Ben Scrivens – After James Reimer was injured during the Leafs’ game against the Flyers, Scrivens was fantastic in relief, stopping 32 of 33 shots he faced to preserve the 5-2 win. He continued his strong play for the rest...
Any time teams around the league take on the Tampa Bay Lightning, coaches continue to ask the same question.
“How do we stop Steven Stamkos?”
The Tampa left winger led the NHL in goals last season when he put in 60 total goals throughout the year, which won him the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy. Stamkos’ early-season success this year has put him right back into the running...
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins are scheduled to play the Lightning on Thursday night, and this time around, there’s no chance this one is being snowed out.
The B’s are in southern Florida to take on the Lightning to start a two-game swing through the Sunshine State in a rematch of the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals. This will be the first meeting of the two teams, after the first scheduled...
The last time the Bruins tried to play the Lightning, Mother Nature had other ideas. There will be no such problems this time around.
With the B’s in Tampa to take on the Bolts, the Boston penalty-kill unit should get a real test from the top power play in the league, led by Steven Stamkos and the potent Lightning offense.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is excited to (finally) see...
Florida. Beautiful beaches, woman, and parties galore. But winning hockey? That's one thing Florida can't provide tourists and locals.
Sure teams have come close. Just look at Tampa Bay two years ago in the Eastern Conference. They have even won a cup. But hockey teams in Florida can't keep winning and that's the problem. Hockey in Florida also has a struggling fan...
