So the Bolts lose another game, the shots in the 3rd were 16 to 7 in favor of Boston, awful, special teams sucked, Lecavalier can't find the back of the net, but there were a few highlights in this loss:
1. Stamkos got his 20th of the season!
-and an assist from Lashoff!
2.Tocchet said about needing for his players to "push back", and they tried. Artyukhin took on Chara in a scrum, Petiot took on Byron Bitz, although it wasn't much of a fight, and Melichar tried to fight Lucic. I said tried to fight Lucic, because although they were a good matchup sizewise, Melichar is not a fighter, but good on him for trying to take on Lucic, that takes guts.
Here's a video from the Chara/Artyukhin tussle:
