AHL Game Night 10/19: Senators at Admirals

That was an awesome home opener. That was a great indoctrination into what the Norfolk fan base is all about.

BIN-1
NOR-5

Ryan Munce had a relatively light night stopping 17 of 18 for the win. That did include stopping a breakaway and a handful of other dangerous chances, but for the most part Norfolk's defense kept Binghamton from getting any puck possession and when they did they were kept out to the perimeter.

First Period
NOR Mihalik, (1) (Kvapil, Wanvig), 4:49

Second Period
NOR Milley, (1) (Klinkhammer, Taylor), 3:25
NOR Stewart, (1) (Collymore), 11:13 (SH)
BNG Bass, (1) (Mauldin, Yablonski), 12:30

Third Period
NOR Wanvig, (3) (Jancevski, Jones), 5:02 (PP)
NOR Taylor, (1) (Leach, Wanvig), 6:52

Norfolk outshot Binghamton 31-18 in the game, and the territorial time felt it was tilted even more in the favor of the Admirals.

So Far, So Good For Darche

(Montreal Gazette)

Mathieu Darche is hoping life begins at 30, a ripe time to become a National Hockey League regular.

Darche has been a minor-league star for years, but the St. Laurent native has never been able to catch on permanently with an NHL club.

He's hoping, almost praying, this year will be different as a third-line winger with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"As long as I'm here, I don't ask questions," Darche said before last night's faceoff against the Bruins in Boston.

For the rest of the feature, see The Montreal Gazette.

NHL Game Night 10/18: Lightning at Bruins

Boston continues to be unholy ground for the Lightning.

TB-1
BOS-4

Johan Holmqvist allowed 4 goals on 23 shots in the loss. Two of the goals went through Holmer, albeit one on a deflection and one through a screen, and the final Bruins goal resulted from a Holmqvist whiff on a pass across the top of his crease he clearly should've gotten. You can't say he cost the Lightning the game tonight because Thomas was unsolvable for the B's, but it might be time for Marc Denis to get his first start.

First Period
Boston 3:48, Peter Schaefer 1 (Andrew Ference)
Boston 19:50, Marco Sturm 2 (Andrew Ference, Patrice Bergeron)

Second Period
Tampa Bay 1:45, Brad Richards 3 (Mike Lundin)

Third Period
Boston 9:49, Mark Stuart 1 (Marc Savard, Chuck Kobasew)
Boston 16:19, Marco Sturm 3 (Patrice Bergeron, Glen Murray)

Thursday's Elitserien Scores

Despite a power play assist from Lightning prospect Johan Harju, Lulea was pasted 6-1 by Djurgardens. The helper was Harju's first of the year to go along with six goals in ten games.

Andreas Holmqvist was scoreless in Frolunda's 3-2 loss to Timra.

Questions for Stirling and Loiselle

Thanks to the fine folks in the Norfolk media relations department and our own Tim Bennett, I'm going to get the opportunity to interview Admirals Head Coach Stirling and Admirals GM/Lightning Assistant GM Claude Loiselle Saturday morning before/after the morning skate.

So, with that in mind, I'm throwing this open to the readers: are there any particular questions you'd like answered about the Admirals or the Lightning prospect system? I'll have the laptop and, supposedly, high speed internet at the hotel so feel free to post your suggestions today, tonight, and all Friday and I'll try to run them by Coach and Claude.

CHL Game Night 10/17: Helenius Comes Back to Earth

Seattle Thunderbirds 2 @ Chilliwack Bruins 6
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Loss, 14 saves on 17 shots, Pulled in first period.

Jacob DeSerres came in and stopped 30 of 33 shots in relief as Chilliwack peppered Seattle with 50 shots. The Bruins, who are 7-1-1-1 in their second year of existence, held 19-4 and 36-9 shots-on-goal advantages after the first and second periods. The Thunderbirds managed just 15 shots in the fight-filled game.

Lethbridge Hurricanes 3 @ Regina Pats 4
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM

Fadden had a rare scoreless game. He had minor penalties for holding and roughing. The 'Canes have lost four in a row.

Prince George Cougars 3 @ Prince Albert Raiders 1
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM

A quiet night for Tyrell on the stat sheet, but that’s 3 wins in 4 games for the Cougars on their eastern road trip so far. They began the trip with a 1-6-0-0 record.
