TAMPA, Fl. — Tampa Bay’s meat and potatoes line gets it done in the second for the Lightning as grinding wingers Mark Recchi and Matt Pettinger were both camped in front of the net, and Recchi redirected Josef Melichar’s slap shot from the right point past Manny Fernandez. The grind it out score, exactly the kind that B’s coach Claude Julien has been imploring from his troops, has given the Lightning a 3-2 lead with 4:53 to go in the second.
