Another huge game for the Lightning tonight. It's not an elimination night but if the Lightning lose tonight, I'll be writing that we are in must win mode tomorrow morning. Every game in the playoffs are important. The Lightning will have to work on getting some secondary scoring because right now, it seems that only Lecavalier and St. Louis is hitting the scoresheet. Although he looked a lot better in Game 3, this is the time Stamkos needs to work that much harder and make an impact. I've been giving him a pass on his efforts since this is his first playoffs, but there comes a time, when you need to start demanding your star players to make a difference. Although the Pens still have not been able to convert on the powerplay, they've been able to score by committee 5 on 5. Their line of Mike Rupp, Craig Adams and Arron Asham has been a force I did not expect in this series.
