Dwayne Roloson Clutch Once Again in Tampa Bay Lightning Win

January 12th, 2011 by Lauren Burg Leave a reply »

The Tampa Bay Lightning went into tonight's game tied at 55 points with the Washington Capitals for first place in the Southeast Division. They came out of the game with 57 points and sole possession of first place, thanks in large part to newly acquired goaltender, Dwayne Roloson.

Roloson stopped 23 Capitals shots, earning his second shutout with the Lightning. Both of Roloson's shutouts have come in the past week, and against the Caps.

Caps goaltender Semyon Varlamov, on the other hand, ended up with 35 saves on 38 Lightning shots.

The Lightning got an early first period goal from Dominic Moore, who took his own rebound and stuffed it past Varlamov to open the scoring.
