After lulling the New York Rangers into a nice slumber with a series of failed power play opportunities, Dan Boyle led the Tampa Bay Lightning’s third period comeback over the New York Rangers, winning 4-3 in the unofficial Hockey Bay USA. Boyle bolstered his first career hat trick with an assist on Vincent Lecavalier’s game-tying power play goal, giving him another personal record with four points. Whether this game helps quell recent trade rumors for the Lightning’s big four is unclear, but it won’t stop barely literate Maple Leafs fans from dreaming up ridiculous proposals:
MAN, they should trade vinny,stlouis,or richards to the leafs…the leafs need more canadians on their team we can give them like aubin, hes pretty solid. The leeafs relaly should pull this trade, it would help them a lot if they were to acquire stlouis or vinny lecavalier. no matter what, tampa has great offesnce , bad defence and bad ggoaltending
The Leafs may have to give up “valued” back-up goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin if they would like to replace Michael Peca’s two-way contributions with the scoring, smarts, and defense of Buffalo’s pending free agent Chris Drury, but the Sabres would have to throw in Ryan Miller to make it worth imspanish‘s while.
