February 20th, 2010 by JC De La Torre Leave a reply »
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Malone may have left home in the midst of a long scoring slump, but the 30-year-old winger has found his scoring touch in the Olympics, leading team USA with three points and two goals in their two victories in tournament play.

Malone has been all over the ice, making the most of his chances on the American's checking line. Team USA prepares to renew its border war with Team Canada on Sunday.

Malone however isn't the only Lightning player to light the lamp in Vancouver as Swedish defenseman Mattais Ohlund scored in his team's 2-0 win over Germany. Team Sweden is also 2-0 in Olympic play.

Lightning prospect Martins Karsums has played significant minutes for team Latvia, registering 45:19 of ice time and two helpers for a team that is severely out manned in this tournament at 0-3.

Defenseman Andrej Meszaros is third on Team Slovakia with 56:28 but has yet to register any points.

Finally, goaltender Antero Niittymaki has yet to see any action for the unbeaten Finland team.

The tournament ends on Feb. 28 with the gold medal game.
