matched a season-high winning streak
San Diego, CA ( - Dwayne Polee II scored 16 points as No. 18 San Diego State narrowly avoided an upset with a 60-59 win over Long Beach State. The Aztecs (7-2) 10 missed free throws could have cost them in a tight game, but Polee made 7-of-8 from the line, including two in the final minute, to help secure the win. Winston Shepard added 10 points for San Diego State on 4-of-6 shooting. Mike Caffey led all scorers with 20 for the 49ers (5-6), but he missed a critical shot late that could have tied the game. He also had a game-high four assists. Tyler Lamb chipped in 13 points for Long Beach State, 10 of which came in the first half. A 10-0 Long Beach run, with the last four points being scored by Caffey, in the second half gave the 49ers a 37-33 lead with 13:21 left. Then, the Aztecs offense went cold. Polee IIs layup at the 12:54 mark ended the LBSU run, but the Aztecs would not hit another shot from the floor for four minutes when Kevin Zabo drained a 3 to cut into Long Beachs eight point lead. A David Samuels jumper with less than five minutes to go ended a quick 4-0 SDSU spurt, but the 49ers then went into a drought themselves. The Aztecs scored nine straight, including four from J.J. OBrien, to take a four-point lead with 1:08 remaining. Caffey hit another shot with 28 seconds to go and the 49ers forced a San Diego State turnover on the ensuing possession, but Caffey missed a shot that would have tied the game. After Polee sunk a pair of free throws to extend the Aztecs lead to 60-56, Caffey would redeem himself with a triple with five seconds on the clock, but it was too little, too late. Despite OBrien missing two free throws, Long Beach State could not get a shot off at the buzzer. The Aztecs led by as much as 12 before the break, but a 10-2 LBSU run to close the half left SDSU with just a 25-21 lead after the first 20 minutes despite the 49ers shooting 30.8 percent from the field.

Justin Peters could get the call in net tonight. He is 0-3-1 with a 4.20 goals against average in his career against Tampa. Holtby is 4-2-1 with a 3.41 GAA in this matchup. Tampa halted a two-game slide its last time out by beating the visiting Carolina Hurricanes in dramatic fashion.

He appeared to attempt a pass from the left circle, but the puck instead changed direction off the skate of Hurricanes defenseman Ron Hainsey in the slot and slid over the goal line. Evgeni Nabokov turned away 29 pucks and picked up his first assist of the season for the Lightning. The win pushed the backup goaltenders record this season to 3-3-1. It was nice to see him get rewarded, Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said of Nabokov. He played great and gave us a chance to win. Ben Bishop expects to be back in net tonight. He is 1-3-1 with a lifetime 4.13 GAA against Washington. Ondrej Palat, who was a late scratch from Thursdays game against Carolina, is questionable for tonights game due to a lower-body injury.
