Tampa vs. St. Louis recap 
Posted on July 14, 2012 at 07:42 PM.
Hi, Rod Martin here to recap the Bolts win in St. Louis tonight. It was a surprisingly gritty game here as the snipers of St. Louis got hemmed in by the aggressively trapping defense of Tampa Bay. We pick up action in the first period as Tampa Bay is looking to get in front yet again early.
"Nice save by Puppa on the shorthanded chance by the Blues. Folks, he looks like he's on his game tonight. Puppa passes it out to Bradley who skates through the neutral zone with speed, beats Duchesne, sets up the slapper and scores past a diving Curtis Joseph! Goal Tampa Bay Lightning! And yet another assist for Puppa! Give him the MVP already."
Dan Jimmerson on the call and it may be too early to call for the MVP for Puppa but boy is his on his game. He has 3 assists already on the season. Speaking of Puppa, he would steal the show tonight as discipline was not a thought for Tampa tonight.
"St. Louis is on their 4th powerplay of the night as Carbonneau wins the draw to Doug Lidster. Lidster feeds it to Tikkanen who sets up a huge Slapper! Glove save by Puppa. Wow what a save and it's still a 1-0 Lightning lead!"
"Tampa up 1-0 as the third starts to wind down, here's MacInnis with it. And Hull is wide open at center ice. MacInnis makes a perfect pass and here we go, Hull is on a breakaway. Hull dekes and THERE'S A SAVE BY PUPPA. Hull shakes his head as Puppa spreads, makes a glove save and plops on the ice. Calm down Daren, you're not home on the sofa yet!"
About halfway through, Tampa goes up 2-0 thanks to this goal by Petr Klima. "Tampa looking for some insurance on the power play. Shaw recovers the dump in, passes to Bradley in the neutral zone. Bradley hits Klima along the boards, Klima bursts in, beats Duschene to the hash marks, skates in on CuJo. He Scores!!!! Goal Petr Klima. Nice burst of speed to beat the defense and a nice low backhand shot for the goal!"
That would do it for the highlights as Tampa cruises and bruises to a 2-0 win. Join us tomorrow night as we should have a dandy. The Lightning are taking on the Philadelphia Flyers at home. Come out and support your Lightning at 7:30 at the Thunderdome!
