Bolts Blanked By Sharks

By JC De La Torre

The Tampa Bay Lightning turned in their worst performance of the season, getting blanked by the San Jose Sharks 3-0 at the St. Pete Times Forum. Tampa Bay was outshot 45-22 and was forced to kill six power play opportunities for San Joes. Sharks back up goalie Brian Bocher made 22 saves to get the shut out.

After a scoreless first, former Lightning player Dan Boyle assisted on the opening goal of the game, scored by Marcel Goc to make it 1-0. Ryan Clowe's power play goal would make it 2-0 and Devin Setoguchi would score the final marker for the final margin.

The Lightning fall to 1-3-3 on the season and have returned back to the cellar of the Southeast division.

It has the makings for another long season at the Forum this year, folks.
