This is the third time these teams will play this season. The Rangers won the first game, and the Lightning won the rematch 5 days later in a shootout. That was the game with Anisimov's "rifle" celebration after scoring a SHG.

Team Scope:

Lightning
: They had a chance Tuesday to make headway against several teams near the bottom of the playoff chase -- Toronto, Ottawa and Florida all lost in regulation -- but the Lightning couldn't solve the defensively stingy Kings.

Steven Stamkos tied the game at 1-1 in the second period, but the Kings went on to a 3-1 victory.

"I thought we had some chances," Stamkos said. "We knew it was going to be a tight-checking game, and that's what it was."

Rangers: Tuesday's loss at home to the Devils could've been a dramatic post-regulation victory. Artem Anisimov appeared to score the tying goal with 3.5 seconds left in the third period, but the goal was waved off when Marian Gaborik collided with goaltender Martin Brodeur.

The Rangers fell 1-0, but they weren't disappointed in their overall game.

"We need to have a better start," said Ryan Callahan, whose team trailed 9-1 in shots as they fell behind early. "I think that's what hurts the most. There are a lot of good things that went on in this game, even though we didn't generate a goal, but we'll take some positives out of it.”


Notable injuries:
Lightning
:
Mattias Ohlund (knee)
Ryan Malone (upper body)
Dana Tyrell (knee)

Rangers:
Michael Sauer (concussion)

Team Leaders:
Lightning

Both of the games were in December, but I'll assume you mean the one that the Bolts won. Or have you decided to change your alliances? :lol:

Biron in net for the Blueshirts tonight, and Eminger returns to the lineup for the first time since injuring his shoulder on Dec. 7. Bickel is coming out to make room for him.

Ok, so I was gone for most of the game. But I'm home now, and we're headed to extra innings.
