The Legend Grows: Sam Fuld Spurs Tampa Bay Lightning To Victory

Get this: the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night, forcing a Game 7 between the two club, and some people want to attribute their win to great penalty kills and a clutch goal by Steve Downie. Umm, seriously? I think we all know the real reason the Bolts won last night:

That's right, Sam Fuld's mere presence was enough to ignite the Lightning and lead them to their second straight victory. He even got Steven Stamkos' blood boiling so hot, he had to take out his fury on Brooks Orpik and pummel him with haymakers. And if you looked at your television close enough during the game, you could sometimes catch a glimpse of the shadowy presence of Sam Fuld zipping around the ice and encouraging the Lightning.
