The Tampa Bay Lightning were able to beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 in last night's game. It was a decent game for the Lightning, especially considering how many injuries the team is dealing with. Speaking of that, the team lost Hedman and Aulie to injury during the game. Aulie will be out for some time with a broken hand while Hedman is day to day. Lightning coach Cooper said Hedman likely won't be ready for Saturday's game.
St. Louis scored twice from nice passes by Palat, and Filppula finally got on the board again for the Lightning.
The story coming out of the game, other than St. Louis scoring twice, is the lengthening injury list. The team showed it has guts and heart, but let's not forget the opposing team wasn't exactly an elite team. Great effort from the Lightning, bit not something to get excited about just yet. We'll see what happens Saturday against the Jets.
