Found March 08, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

The Lightning loss to the Winnipeg Jets was as frustrating as any other frustrating ones. A turnover that lead to a goal, multiple scoring chances, and poor power play management lead to Tampa Bay losing 2-1.  Here are some quotes and notes from Thursday’s loss: Coach Guy Boucher “No, I don’t think so. Scoring chances were 15-9 us and 61% on face-offs. We out hit them. We can put it in. It was the same story against Buffalo. Their goalie played good and we missed chances – incredible quality chances.” Steven Stamkos “Yeah, it doesn’t matter, one goal, two goals, three goals, a loss is a loss. If you don’t get a point, it’s a loss. We can keep saying we are playing well, but if we are not winning then we got to find a way.” Steven Stamkos scored his NHL-leading 18th goal of the season tonight. Stamkos has now recorded at least a point in 20 of the first 24 games this season. Bolts now sit five points out of the final playoff spot in the conference and six points behind CArolina for the divison lead.
