Found February 16, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

Another game of Lightning hockey appeared to be headed towards the loss column. The difference was they got some shots in net to beat the Florida Panthers 6-5.  Florida appeared to have things in hand in the third period when they scored two goals to make it 5-3. But after a tripping call to the Panthers’ Alex Kovalev, Steven Stamkos scored on the power play to bring the Bolts to within one. Then, with under :15 seconds left and Anders Lindback pulled from net, Tampa Bay tied the game courtesy of the shot from Teddy Purcell to force overtime. On the Lightning’s first shot in overtime, Benoit Pouliot would take the shot in front as the puck bounced off the boards to give the Lighting a 6-5 win. Tampa Bay got 36 shots off to Florida’s 30. The game marked the first time since February 2nd’s loss to the Rangers that the Lightning outshot their opponent. It also marks the team’s first win in the last seven games. The post Lightning stop skid with win over Panthers appeared first on The Bay Cave.

Panthers' young guns provide positive energy

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. The Florida Panthers are starting to recognize the kids are more than all right. A little past the quarter mark of a shortened season, Florida has yet to exhibit the consistency that propelled them to a division championship last year.

Much has gone wrong for Florida Panthers

So what’s wrong with the Florida Panthers? Plenty, as it turns out. Rookie center Jonathan Huberdeau has lived up to all his hype, but it’s tough to find anybody else meeting their preseason expectations.After starting the season 1-5, the Panthers improved, slightly, to 3-1-4 during their next eight games.

Michael Stuart: A Quick Look at the Lightning's Goaltending: Part One

During last season’s debacle in Tampa Bay, goaltending was a big topic of discussion for fans of the Lightning. Dwayne Roloson was bad, Mathieu Garon was injured, and Dustin Tokarski was less than inspiring. Combined, they helped to form the worst goaltending trio in the league. Fast forward just a few months and the Bolts are in a completely different situation. Anders...

Michael Stuart: Lightning Snap Losing Streak with Win Against Panthers

It wasn’t pretty but, as they say in golf, there are no pictures on the scorecard. The Tampa Bay Lightning skated into Sunrise and came out with a much needed win. However, a 6-5 overtime result on the jumbo-tron does not tell the full story. After six straight losses for the Lightning, emotion was running high, frustration was visible, and the team was in desperation mode...

Eric Engels: Habs Bank Four Points in Florida...Undefeated Against SE Division

I'm not sure you could call a 1-0 overtime win a perfect road game, but you couldn't accuse the Canadiens of imperfection in this one. Sure, it didn't have the carpe diem approach most of the Canadiens wins thus far have been generated by, but the Habs limited the Florida Panthers to very few scoring opportunities. And when the pressure was on, Carey Price colled...
