Ryan Malone made his return to the lineup tonight after missing time with a …pre-game soccer… injury. He beat two Winnipeg defenders to the puck, passed to Marty St. Louis who fed to Steven Stamkos for Tampa’s only goal of the night.- What are you gonna do? This team needs to win games consistently, but it’s hard to pick apart tonight’s game. A tight one and Winnipeg came out on top.
- Victor Hedman did not play for a large portion of the 2nd period, but later returned to the bench and finished the game. Might want to keep an eye out there.
- Anders Lindback needs to stay consistent with these good efforts. Unfortunately the team did not reward him tonight.
- Next game is Saturday night against Montreal. You have to win games at home and, with three of the next four (and Florida not much of a trip) at home, the time is now to get a streak going.
