NHL Frozen in Time: Tough loss to swallow

That's not how goaltending is supposed to work! Anders Nilsson was caught out of his net and swimming when Brian Boyle tipped the puck past him and into an empty net to give the Lightning a go-ahead short-handed goal.

Every loss at this point in the season brings introspection.

Whether you’re left looking foolish or having to face your enemy in a moment of weakness, photographers make sure teams feel every single second of defeat.

Rub it in while you can, fellas.
