Pierre-Cedric Labrie made his season debut for the Lightning on Monday afternoon.
It didn't take him long to make his presence felt though, as he fought Islanders defenseman Joe Finley just one second into the first period. At the same time, B.J. Crombeen dropped his mitts to engage in fisticuffs with Matt Martin. "We definitely haven't had a start like that, which I thought was great, it showed a lot," teammate Ryan Malone said. "This year, we have a lot more size and grit to us, and that's nice to have." Unfortunately, Tampa Bay couldn't rally from a 4-0 deficit in the contest and they lost 4-3.
