Pissed away

At least it wasn't an overall slaughter tonight.

The Lightning played "it's game" tonight - going up, getting even, going up and giving it away - in Ottawa tonight... preserving pessimism among Lightning fans as the team ends it's five game road trip.

Vincent lLecavalier scored twice for the Lightning -- which gives him 30 on the year, and 3 goals in 2 games -- opening scoring in general 2 minutes into play as well as scoring early in the second after play was delayed due to one of the boards being out of position. Dmitry Afanasenkov scored just seconds after the Lecavalier goal in the 2nd and it was 3-1...

And then the piss away began.

The Lightning played mostly fast and kept up with the Senators but were outclassed by the Heatly/Alfresson show once again -- allowing Heatly to tie the game early in the 3rd and Alfredsson to win the game with all of 6 seconds left on the clock. 3 unanswered goals and the Lightning are back to reeling.

It's not all dark after this loss (yet a good deal of it ever still) but the Lightning return home with it's tail between it's legs after an unproductive road swing...

Sidenote -- anyone view TSN before tonights game or hear about the (appropriate) savaging of Bobby "The Chief" Taylor's complaining from the night before in Montreal?
