As I wrote yesterday, it was a back-and-forth, playoff-style game with a frenetic and at times furious pace. Fun to watch, but for the final score. And even then you couldn't walk away dissatisfied.

DolPhanDave, who had quite a frenetic day himself, has a terrific in-depth rundown in the FanPosts on the right.




DIVISIONALLY SPEAKING

 


Southeast Standings

GP W L OTL PT
Washington 40 26 11 3 55
Carolina 40 20 15 5 45
Florida 39 17 16 6 40
Tampa Bay 39 11 18 10 32
Atlanta 40 13 22 5 31

The Lightning finally have their first win in Atlanta in two years, as the Bolts' Mike Smith closed the door on 27 shots and Martin St. Louis scored two goals to beat the Thrashers 4-1. Tampa Bay has now jumped Atlanta in the division standings, claiming a tenuous hold on fourth place. Thankfully, we did not have to endure another Washington or Carolina victory...since they didn't play.

None of the Southeast teams are in action tonight, though the sinking Penguins at Rangers should provide a bit of interest; with a win, the suddenly 44-point Pens would overtake Buffalo for the coveted 8th spot in the conference. Pittsburgh currently leads the Panthers by two points, though trail the Sabres by one. Let's go, Rangahs...
