First Period Live Blog: New Jersey Devils at Tampa Bay Lightning

Below find my thoughts on tonight’s game at the Tampa Bay Times Forum as they play:

New Jersey Devils at Tampa Bay Lightning


First Period

20:00 to go

-All Devils early on in Tampa; Can’t convert on early power play.

7:54 to go

-Tampa Bay headed to the power play after Mark Fayne trips Tyler Johnson

-A scrap between Radko Gudas and Tom Kostopoulos after the whistle also. 5 on 4 for the Bolts

-Big saves by Brodeur prevent Tampa from taking a 1-0 lead; Great Opportunities for Stamkos

2:00 to go

-Garon stones Bernier on a 2 on 1

-Lightning can’t convert on golden opportunity; Brodeur might be in Stamkos’ head


0-0 after First Period

7-5 SOG Devils
