     Interesting answers.  On most teams I think the goaltenders would get more votes.  Wayne Simmonds tenacious efforts make him the favorite that he is.  
 
 
Next game: 
    Michael Raffl had 4 hits and a blocked shot in 15 and half minutes of ice time against the Lightning.
     Steven Stamkos tied the game at 1 for the Lightning 2 minutes into the second period, then Tyler Johnson scored 5 minutes later to give them all the goals they would need.  Wayne Simmonds had scored a power play goal with just under 2 minutes to go in the 1st period.  The Lightning would add an empty net goal by Valtteri Filppula.
     Steve Mason kept the Flyers in the game with many spectacular saves.  
      The Flyers penalty killing, probably climbed out of the statistical basement no letting the Lightning score in 4 chances.
