AHL Game Night 11/30: Admirals at River Rats

Considering they only had one good period, getting a point is probably the best the Ads could expect.

NOR-3
ALB-4 (OT)

Jonathan Boutin stopped 35 of 39 shots in the overtime loss. Norfolk was outshot 39-26 in the game.

First Period

Overtime
ALB Bayda, (6) (Aucoin), 4:36

Norfolk is two points out of the final playoff spot in the division with Binghamton holding 2 games in hand, so tomorrow night's game against the Senators has some obvious importance. Rumors last week placed a possible Karri Ramo return for the game tomorrow night, but seeing as Karl Goehring dressed as the backup tonight that remains to be seen.

Sea Wolves winning streak ends as the Stingrays of South Carolina score three unanswered goals in the 3rd period. Radek Smolenak notches a marker while firing a team-high 7 shots, Brandon Elliott went toe-to-toe with Grant McNeill, and Ryan Munce stopped 50 shots while getting tough defending his crease in a penalty-filled third penalty.

NHL Game Night 11/28: Lightning at Blackhawks

Lightning sleepwalk for 60 minutes. What a terrible night.

TB-1
CHI-5

Johan Holmqvist allowed 3 goals on 10 shots for the loss before being relieved by Marc Denis who allowed 2 goals on 7 shots. Load both of them in a cannon and shoot them to the moon as far as I'm concerned. The Lightning only managed 22 shots on goal in the game. Load the skaters up in the same cannon with the goalies.

Put that effort on the ice again tomorrow night against Detroit and they'll pin 5 on you in the first period alone.

Sweden to Opt Out of the IIHF Transfer Agreement?

Passing along some information being reported by Bill Meltzer regarding a meeting taking place tomorrow in Stockholm on whether the SEL will join the RSL in opting out of the IIHF transfer agreement with the NHL. From Meltzer's article:

Färjestad general manager Håkan Loob spoke out saying, "The majority in the Hockey League think the new agreement is too unfavorable. ...It's a catastrophe that the NHL [clubs] must decide within two year whether or not to sign a player. What it means is that more [players] get NHL contracts and disappear from Elitserien. ...Without a transfer agreement, only contract-less players can disappear to the NHL. There's a lot of positives in it. Then we would have more control over the player market."

ECHL Game Night 11/27: South Carolina at Mississippi
