I complained about he Isles game earlier this week as being an Ugly win.

If THAT was ugly, the Lightning's win tonight in Boston redefines the term Ugly. Teh first period saw the Bolts sleepwalking and Boston taking advantage. It also saw the Refs bowing to the home crowd. Hell, that was the case most of the game...

On the plus side -- the Lightning preservered and came back from a 3-1 hole to win in Boston for the first time since 1994..

But thank God the break is taking place because it will take me a few days to get this bad taste out of my mouth.

The Run halts... The Lightning went 10-2-1 with 21 points since January 17th until tonight. We'll take a break for the XXth WInter Olympiad and see if the Lightning can turn a Run into a dash to the finish.
