Brad Richards 3, Devils 2 (SO)

12,689 my ass. Take away the 1 or the 9 from that and you have the right attendance.

Scoring Summary
1st Period
New Jersey - Jay Pandolfo (!) - 7th of the Season, from Madden and Brylin, at 1:58
2nd Period
Tampa Bay - Brad Richards - 17th of the Season, from Ranger at 4:57
Tampa Bay - Brad Richards (Pwr Play) - 2nd of the Game, 18th of the Season, from Boyle and St. Louis, at 19:56
3rd Period
New Jersey - Paul Martin (!!) (Pwr Play) - 1st of the Season, from Parise and Rafalski, at 12:50
Tampa Bay - Brad Richards

Another undeserved point from the Devils tonight. It seems everytime we go to a shootout, we've had to fight to tie the game, and we seem as a club too tired to go through with it. We've just been so lackluster in the shootout lately.

To be fair Tampa played well. Not as well as Doc and Chico would have you think (what was up with that?) but still, they deserve skills competition point. The feed from Ranger to Richards was sweet. We seem to be vulnerable to the long pass (see Malkin, Evgeni) and that's concerning.

We got the point, the lead over New York (Light Blue and Red) is up to 11, and were inching closer to Buffalo with time (and games against) to possibly catch them.
