.948 Save Percentage in January , a plethora of shutout minutes in a row and all that... Grahame is, I have to admit it, on fire...

It took 11 seconds to tell the difference.

Ruslan Fedotenko opened up scoring 11 seconds into the game and the lightning amassed 39 shots total as they drubbed the Caps 5-0. It's Grahame's 3rd shutout in 4 games (29 saves - including several heavy barrages of shots) and the team's 7th win since January 17th in LA (7-1-1, 15 points). This game comes a week after a very disappointing loss to this very caps team in Washington and with Bolts absent of one of it's top players.
