Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Erin Chenderlin at the Tampa Bay Lightning website,
TBL.com: The Penguins, in just three seasons, went from last in the East in 05-06 to Conference champions this past season. Do you feel the Lightning are on the brink of doing something similar?
RM: I think the East is so close, if you really have a top power play and your special teams are good, those are some big things that can really carry your team. Obviously you need solid goaltending and I think [Mike] Smith and [Olaf] Kolzig are great goaltenders. Like I said earlier, those big pieces are there and they’re bringing in experienced players, so it’s not quite like Pittsburgh where they’re starting out young, but they’re bringing in guys that know how to win and want to win.
