Is it too early to start a Rick Tocchet gets fired watch? From AP-
Richards netted two goals, including the winner on a power play 2:05 into overtime, and the Philadelphia Flyers sent the Tampa Bay Lightning to their fifth straight loss with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night.So far the Lightning are 1-3-4 under Tocchet. They were 6-7-4 under Barry Melrose before he was fired. I don't think that coaching move has worked too well, do you?
The Lightning missed an opportunity to win with 16.3 seconds left in regulation when Ryan Malone was awarded a penalty shot, but his attempt went wide when Martin Biron just got a piece of the puck.
"I didn't know he was going to go wide, but I got a toe on it" Biron said.
Malone hit the post on a breakaway and was given the penalty shot when Philadelphia forward Scott Hartnell threw his glove at the puck
This game was very annoying to me. Because of the NHL's television package, other NHL games are not broadcast on the night of a Versus game if the games are played at the same time. So I didn't get to watch a banged up Florida kick the crap out of Washington. Such a great television deal you negotiated NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
