What took you guys so friggin' long?
It's only exhibition but it's a pleasing result. The Bolts win 5-3 in Detroit. The line of Modin - Richards and St. Louis have been white hot in practice scrimages and it is no different here. Richards with 4 points, Modin with 3, St. Louis with 3.... Each man had at least one goal while Evgeny Artyukhin acounted for the sole goal from someone outside that line.
The score on NHL.com will read 6-3 as a final as the Lightning won the for-practice shootout 2-1. Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards scored for the Bolts while Jason Williams had the lone tally for Detroit.
I'll have more on the game tomorrow as I wasn't able to listen...
