Season Totals: 41 GP, 26-23-49, +28, 34 PIM

NHL Game Night: 1-14-10 Panthers at Lightning

Thoroughly disappointing.

FLA-3
TB-2

Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss.

First Period
FLA 5:58, Horton 16 (Weiss, Frolik)
TB 9:40, Halpern 9 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)
TB 12:40, Downie 10 (Malone, Szczechura)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
FLA 8:53, Stillman 7 (Reinprecht, Dvorak)
FLA 12:21, Olesz 11 (unassisted)

The Lightning played 40 minutes of very solid hockey, only to take their foot off the gas a bit and have a couple of mistakes by defensemen find their way into the back of the net to cost them the game in the third. It was very disheartening. This team, for some reason, insists on doing things the hard way this season.

Paul Szczechura had 1 assist, 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and he was 64% on draws in 14:33.

Martins Karsums, KHK MVD, DNP
Season totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

Dynamo Riga 4 @ Ekaterinburg 0
Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, DNP
Season totals: 39 GP, 4-3-7, -15, 12 PIM

Bolts Recall Dustin Tokarski to Tampa

TAMPA BAY, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski (toh-KAHR-skee) from the Norfolk Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today. This is the rookie netminder’s first career National Hockey League recall.

Tokarski, 20, is a 5-foot-11, 185-pound goaltender out of Watson, Saskatchewan. He has posted a 12-13-0 record with two shutouts, a 2.68 goals-against average and .911 save percentage in his first 25 professional games with the Admirals this season. He turned aside 28 shots last night to help Norfolk defeat the Hershey Bears 4-3 at Scope.

Tokarski was drafted by the Lightning in the fifth round (122nd overall) in 2008. He won the 2006 Canadian Midget National Championship with the Prince Albert Mintos, was MVP of the 2008 Memorial Cup with the Western Hockey League’s Spokane Chiefs, and won the gold medal at the 2009 World Junior Championships for Team Canada.

Blair Jones Named to AHL All-Star Team

NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk Admirals and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect forward Blair Jones has been named to the Canadian AHL All-Star team for the 2010 Time Warner Cable AHL All-Star Classic to be played next week at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. Jones will replace Admirals leading scorer Brandon Bochenski, who was named a starter to the PlanetUSA AHL All-Star team but is currently on NHL recall to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jones, 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, has six goals and 13 assists in 27 games for the Admirals in 2009-10. Currently he is third on the team in assists and tied for fourth in points. The fourth-year pro has also played in 14 games with Tampa Bay this season, recording ten penalty minutes and averaging 12:50 in ice time per game.

Tampa Bay - The Tampa Bay Lightning have assigned prospect right wing Martins Karsums to HC MVD Balashikha of the Kontinental Hockey League today, Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced. Karsums has played 36 games for the Norfolk Admirals this season, scoring 4 goals and adding 12 assists.

Despite speculation that prospect goaltender Dustin Tokarski will be recalled to Tampa today to back up Antero Niittymaki in tonight's match against the Florida Panthers, no official word of the recall has yet to be announced.

CHL Game Night: 1-13-10

WHL

Brandon Wheat Kings 2 @ Regina Pats 4
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 40 GP, 18-18-36, -10, 73 PIM
With Regina: 12 GP, 5-5-10, -2, 21 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Regina won their second in a row, skating to a 3-0 second period lead and never looking back. Ashton’s 18th goal of the year came on the power play. He has goals in three of his last four games, and four goals in that span.

OHL Note: Alex Hutchings of Barrie was named to the OHL Eastern Conference All-Star team Wednesday. This is Hutchings' third time as an All-Star.

AHL Game Night: 1-13-10 Bears at Admirals

Following the lead of the big club, the Admirals break through against the Caps' farm team.

HER-3
NOR-4

Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the win.

First Period
HER Wilson, (12) (Carlson, Pinizzotto), 13:24

Second Period
NOR Keller, (6) (Lawrence, Krajicek), 3:14
NOR Simek, (11) (Quick), 15:59

Third Period
NOR Craig, (13) (Keller, Lawrence), 3:22
HER McNeill, (3) (Aucoin, Giroux), 4:21
HER Giroux, (14) (McNeill, Gordon), 7:33
NOR Parrish, (9) , 19:53

Mark Parrish and Justin Keller were the game's first and second stars. The Admirals had lost all five of their previous encounters this season to the Bears, which was a streak of futility oddly similar to the one the Lightning just broke against the Capitals. The Admirals pull into the halfway point of the season at four games under .500, and they'll be 1-2 points behind Adirondack for fourth in the division by the end of the night, tied with both Syracuse and Binghamton at 36 points.

Chris Lawrence broke a 17 game scoreless streak with his first multi-point night of the season. Way to go, Larry.

Killorn, Conor Morrison, and Louis Leblanc completed a tic-tac-toe play started by Killorn's centering pass from the left boards with Morrison touch passing to Leblanc for one of his two goals. Killorn rang a 3rd period power play shot off the left post, which didn't count as one Killorn's team-high 6 shots on goal.
