Just over a year ago, Dwayne Roloson arrived on the scene to stabilize the Lightning's goaltending.

When Goaltending Falls Apart

Last season the Tampa Bay Lightning finished fifth in the East Conference with 103 points and made the semi-finals.  Throughout the much of the regular season they did not have great goaltending.  They started the year with Dan Ellis and Mike Smith in goal.  Neither of them performed like they belonged in the NHL.  In January things changed.  The Lightning were able to trade...

Tuesday's...

Tampa Bay Forgets to Take Goalie to Toronto

Well that’s what I assume happened after the Lightning gave up 7 Goals to the Leafs.  It really amazes me that a team that went to the Conference Finals just last year would be so slow to address such a glaring weakness.  Yeah yeah their Defensive corp is lacking as well (Jeremy Roenick seems to think thats the only problem), but the reality is a better Goalie, with that offense...
