Marty St. Louis Says Lightning Lacked Grit Saturday Night

Lightning Captain Martin St. Louis said after the Tampa Bay Lightning were shutout 5-0 by the Boston Bruins that the team lacked grit against a very good Bruins team.

“It starts with me” St.Louis said, “Just the aggressiveness I need to help the team when I’m struggling a little bit. We all were caught watching just a little bit instead of just making it happen and sometimes its just one of those games that’s not about pretty play, it’s just about going to win the battle and it starts with your top guys and we just didn’t get that done tonight.”

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
