TAMPA, Fla. – With the Lightning season all but hanging in the balance, one of the top offensive threats sat plastered to the bench.
With Tampa Bay trailing by a goal late in the third period and in desperate need of a goal, one of the top offensive produces this season didn’t step on to the ice.
But in the dying seconds of a one-goal game, a game that Tampa Bay absolutely had to find a way to get points out of, one of the team’s less offensive talents was tapped to go over the boards to try to find a way to tie the game and at least get it to overtime.
The Lightning would go on to lose 4-3.
