Cats win - barely - in Tampa Bay, 4-3 (SO)

I blew that one, alright. Don't know why I thought the Canadiens/Hurricanes game of last night was going to be on Versus, but I'd swear I saw it somewhere...Hmmm. Maybe it was the cheap Merlot.

On to happier thoughts. Bryan McCabe is beginning to make JM the GM look brilliant, garnering two goals in what appeared to be a game headed for blowout status. Vokoun's 49(!) saves stopped all three shots in the shootout frame, and Nathan Horton woke up just in time to score the winner.

Tampa kept it interesting, blasting home three unanswered goals late in the game, so they walk away with a point, but hey...statistically Ottawa is worse than the Panthers! Steve Stamkos obviously felt comfortable (9 shots) with his new linemates. The Lecavalier/St. Louis/Stamkos combo could be quite potent over time.


  1. Vokoun's gonna have to steal a few games like that for us to make a playoff push. Would've been nice not to allow Tampa to get that point, but oh well. 2 points is 2 points. Sorry you couldn't see it!

  2. Given the way the last few minutes of regulation went, I'm not certain I couldn't have kept a knife out of my hand. Either way, it ended on a positive note...especially for TB.

  3. nice post and thanks for sharing....
