If you looked at tonight's schedule and thought, "Hey! Lightning and Flyers looks like a pretty good one", you'd be more than correct. Within the first 10 minutes of the game, the teams combined for five goals and the first period finished with a 5-4 Philadelphia lead.
The final goal of the first was scored by Tampa's Brett Clark(notes), who decided to end the wild period with a bang by doing his best Shea Weber(notes)-at-the-Olympics impression and fired his fourth goal through the Flyers' net:
The second period was much tamer seeing just five goals combined and Steven Stamkos(notes) scoring twice to complete the hat trick for a 7-7 tie heading into the third. And to further the wackiness of the game, Martin St. Louis(notes) had five assists and finished a minus-1 as the Lightning squeaked out an 8-7 win.
