Intermission rumblings....

20

April

It was a high-energy first period, one broken up by several ticky-tack penalties.

The Lightning have outshot the Devils 8-5......they even had a few good scoring chances, highlighted by Vinny and Marty's odd-man rush

St. Louis had a critical turnover that led to John Madden's breakaway, but Johan Holmqvist came up huge with a left pad save.

It was a classic waiting game, with Madden trying to get Holmqvist to bite as he went to his backhand, but the Lightning goaltender kept the game scoreless - for a moment.

The Devils lone goal came on a one-timer from the point from Andy Greene. There was a heavy screen in front of Holmqvist, who has played pretty well throughout the first 20 minutes....

MIA is Fedotenko, who didn't play a second of the first period. So far, he's been a silent scratch..but that could change with two periods to go
