COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Tampa Bay Lightning scored quick in the first period against Columbus on Saturday night and hung on for the entire third period.

Blair Jones and Eric Brewer scored in the opening period and Steve Stamkos scored in the second period as the Lightning won 3-2.

Former Jacket goalie Mathieu Garon stopped 26 shots and made a triumphant return to Nationwide Arena.

Stamkos, who entered the game tied for the NHL lead with 19 goals with Milan Michalek of Ottawa, put up the game-winner, his 20th.

The Jackets momentarily came back in the second period to tie the game at 2-2 with goals from R.J. Umberger and Rick Nash, and Vinny Prospal provided two assists.


* Before the game, Prospal was honored by the Blue Jackets for becoming the 268th player to play in 1,000 NHL games. He reached the mark against Buffalo on November 25.

* Umberger’s scored his 8oth goal with Columbus. He is eight shy of tying Geoff Sanderson for third on the franchise’s career list.

* Derek Dorsett returned to the ice for the Blue Jackets after missing two games for a problem with his left lower leg, following a collision with Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas last week.

42-year-old Mark Recchi will be sticking around the Boston Bruins to be a part of their youth movement.

Recchi signed a one-year contract to return to Boston for his 22nd NHL season, making the league’s oldest active player under contract. If 48-year-old Chris Chelios, who can become an unrestricted free agent, doesn’t return to the NHL, Recchi would become the oldest player in the league. Chelios played with the Atlanta Thrashers last season, his 26th NHL season.

By playing another season in Boston, it gives Recchi a chance to play with 18-year-old prospect Tyler Seguin, the number 2 overall pick in last week’s NHL draft.

A seven-time All-Star, Recchi leads active players with 922 assists and is second with 563 goals. He is ninth in career NHL games played with 1,571, but if he plays a full season in 2010-2011, he’ll move up as high as fourth all-time.

The Bruins reached the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season, taking a 3-0 lead over Philadelphia before the Flyers tied the series and the came back from a three-goal deficit in game 7 to advance. Boston is just the third NHL team to lose a playoff series it led by three games.

Recchi garnered 18 goals and 25 assists last season plus a team-leading six goals along with four assists in 13 playoff games. He was picked up by Boston from the Tampa Bay Lightning in March 2009. He has also suited up with Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Montreal, Carolina and Atlanta.

Guy Boucher says ‘yes’ to the Tampa Bay Lightning

compiled from staff and wire reports

Just a few days after telling the Columbus Blue Jackets ‘no’ to their head coaching vacancy, Guy Boucher said ‘yes’ to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

In his first major move since becoming general manager of the struggling franchise, Steve Yzerman stepped outside of hiring a well-known NHL coach to hire Guy Boucher as the team’s new coach on Thursday.

Boucher has only one year of professional coaching experience, none on the NHL level.  Yzerman says that he was not going to let Boucher’s age of 38, deter him from hiring an-up-and coming coach with potential.

The former coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs from the American Hockey League, agreed to a contract after turning down a chance to coach the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier this week.

Boucher replaces Rick Tocchet, who was fired April 12 after a 34-36-12 finish left the Lightning out of the playoffs for the third straight year.

He led Hamilton, which is Montreal’s top minor league affiliate, to the second-best record in the AHL.

Boucher will inherit a roster that has a chance to win with Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, the top pick in the 2008 NHL draft who scored 51 goals this season to tie Sidney Crosby for the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy.
