For now, it should be Dustin Tokarski's net: lock, stock and little red light. If the Lightning — the stubborn, desperate Lightning — still has a chance to get to the postseason, it needs this baby-faced goaltender to lead the way. So put a saddle on his back, a bit between his teeth and spur him toward the playoffs. After all, what better chance does the Lightning have? He is 22, and he has just gotten out of the cab, and the Lightning has lost both of his starts. Given that, it may sound odd for someone to suggest Tokarski should be the team's top goalie. At this point, however, who else are you going to trust? Why not Tokarski? Why not now? After all, this is Dead Team Walking, remember? The Lightning season was transferred to the morgue back in December, and it has taken a series of long shots to get it out and into the playoff race. It has won despite injuries (to Vinny Lecavalier, to Mathieu Garon, to Victor Hedman). It has won despite regulars being bartered away (Pavel Kubina, Dominic Moore, Steve Downie). It has won despite recently being last in the conference and 12 points out of the final playoff spot. What's another long shot then? And isn't Tokarski one worth taking? Look, no one is talking about Tokarski and looking for new words for "terrific." He has lost twice, and yes, he should have stopped the tiebreaking goal Saturday night. Still, that's how bad the Lightning's goaltending, apart from Garon's recent streak, has been. Around here, a guy can lose and still earn more time. Face it, if the options were decent, Tokarski probably wouldn't have been in goal the last two games. Put it this way. Tokarski has given up six goals in his two starts; Dwayne Roloson has given up 13 in his last two. For more on this article Click Here.
