Tampa Bay’s Mike Smith has cleared waivers and is off to the AHL next. An inglorious fall for the former Lightning starting goalie.
Feb 2, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT
Tampa Bay has put goalie Mike Smith on waivers. Is this a chance for the Islanders to clean up their issue with Evgeni Nabokov?

Dwayne Roloson never had a lot of success against the Caps through most of his career. Now that he’s with Tampa Bay, he’s shut them out twice. You just can’t predict hockey, can you?

Make no mistake about which team is No. 1 in the East – at least right now – as top seed Pittsburgh dismantled second seed Tampa Bay 8-1 tonight.
Jan 1, 2011, 11:47 PM EDT
The Lightning acquired goalie Dwayne Roloson from the Islanders in exchange for prospect Ty Wishart. The question is, who will be the odd man out between Roloson, Dan Ellis and Mike Smith?
Dec 27, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT
Who made the best save for the week of December 20-26: Marc-Andre Fleury, Ryan Miller, Dan Ellis or Marek Zidlicky?
Dec 23, 2010, 5:34 PM EDT
The Lightning are going to have to make do without goalie Mike Smith for at least a couple weeks. Dan Ellis better be ready.
Dec 23, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT
Dan Ellis didn’t win against the NY Islanders last night, but he made two great saves. Check them out in this post.
Dec 21, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT
The Lightning claim that Mike Smith’s left knee injury is a minor one that will keep him out about two weeks.
Dec 20, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT
If the Evgeni Nabokov rumors weren’t enough, now the Lightning must juggle Mike Smith’s injury, the struggles of Dan Ellis and the call up of Cedrick Desjardins.

While the Washington Capitals and his former team the San Jose Sharks received plenty of votes, the greatest number of PHT readers think that Tampa Bay is the ideal location for Evgeni Nabokov.

The kerfuffle the Tampa Bay Lightning had over Oilers forward Linus Omark’s shootout goal can finally be put to rest.
Dec 14, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT
Things are looking up for Tampa Bay. Now if they could only find a consistent goalie…
Dec 12, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT
People are still talking about Linus Omark’s shootout goal from Friday night. Who knew showing a little flair would be so troublesome?
Dec 3, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT
Dennis Seidenberg tricked Mike Smith to earn Thursday’s goal of the night.

Marc Savard received a standing ovation upon his return to the Boston Bruins. Perhaps his teammates deserved one, too, after they absolutely dominated the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight. Boston 8, Tampa Bay 1 Another Bruins center who dealt with his own concussion problems ended up being one of the stars of the show, as David…

Once again, Simon Gagne celebrated a return from injury by winning a game with a goal in overtime.

If you didn’t know any better, you would’ve thought that tonight’s game between the Flyers and Lightning was played in a simpler, more fun era of hockey. A day when scoring dominated the scene and getting good goaltending meant having a goals against average around 3.00. That’s right, these two teams dialed it back to…

While Alex Ovechkin and Steve Stamkos played well, Alex Semin stole the spotlight with an impressive five-point performance that included a hat trick. Read more about an exciting game after the jump.

There were at least two other worthy candidates for the best save of last night, but Carey Price made some great ones on his way to a 35-save shutout.

OK, I know that he’s talented and wears No. 4 … but take it easy with the Bobby Orr comparisons. Now that I set that aside, this is still a silky smooth goal by Nashville Predators defenseman Cody Franson. He wasn’t the only Predators defenseman who scored a nice goal last night, either, as Shea…
Oct 24, 2010, 9:12 PM EDT
For at least one night, the Nashville Predators sit atop the NHL’s standings with 13 points. They’re also the only team without a regulation loss, although two quick third period goals from Tampa Bay made Anders Lindback & Co. sweat it out.

The Islanders and Lightning needed overtime to settle things and Matt Moulson was credited with the game-winning goal in overtime as he apparently got one slightly past Lightning netminder Dan Ellis. The goal was initially waived off by the referee who stood right over the play, but replay showed the puck apparently getting across enough…
