D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM,7 SOG
Season totals: 53 GP, 12-23-35, +10, 40 PIM
Barberioâ€™s point streak is now at four games but Moncton couldnâ€™t close the door on the leagueâ€™s top team in a battle of division leaders. Drummondville (43-9-0-3) scored three unanswered goals, including two in the third period, to beat the Wildcats (40-10-2-3), who lead the Telus Atlantic Division.
Dollars to donuts, Stamkos' penalty shot was in.
Mike McKenna allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the loss. Tampa Bay outshot the Thrashers 41-24, but a soft goal by McKenna ended up being the margin.

Harvard Crimson 3 vs. #15 Boston College Eagles 4
F Alex Killorn Har: Did not play.
Season totals: 22GP, 4-7-11, 38PIM, -10
In rematch of last years final, Harvard (5-14-4) comes up short in Beanpot consolation game. BC outshot the Crimson 46-22. Killorn was a scratch due to what is being called an "upper body injury." No word yet on how long he'll be out.
#1 Boston University beat #3 Northeastern 5-2 in championship game to win their 29th Beanpot.
First Star Fadden leads TC to a win over his former team ... Tokarski good, but not good enough vs. Kelowna ... Vancouver's 10 game streak ends ... Barberio a multi-point night.
Norfolk limps into town, takes a whipping, and limps back out.
Riku Helenius allowed 4 goals on 35 shots before being pulled in the third period for Tyler Sims, who allowed 1 goal on 6 shots the rest of the way.

UMASS (6-10-3) drops consecutive conference games over the weekend. Sits 8th in Hockey East one point behind 7th place Maine.
Providence Friars 1 @ #7 Vermont Catamounts 4
F Matt Marshall 0-0-0, +1
Vermont (16-6-4) sweeps weekend series against Friars. Currently 3rd in Hockey East standings, 4 points behind 1st place Northeastern.
Roberts goes from goat to hero in the span of a couple of nights.
Mike McKenna had a 28 save shutout for his first career NHL win.
13:34 TB Roberts (3), (Eminger, Stamkos)
Roberts, who got played like a fiddle by Matt Cooke to help cost his team a point in the standings against the Pens, tipped in an Eminger point shot for the game winning goal tonight. I sense mayhem on the message boards.
Steve Downie was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 9:37. He limped off after getting hit with a puck, so we'll have to see if he's ready to go next time out.
Matt Smaby got himself a 5 for fighting early in the game and also had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 19:22. Tonight was a really good night for Smaby. He got an opportunity to show the coaching staff what he can do with more ice time, and he was solid. He was even surprisingly good at pinching in and keeping plays alive at the blueline in the offensive zone. I've been extremely impressed since he came back from his injury. It looks to me like he may very well stick this time.
David Koci played 1:31 in the game.
When this season is over, the Ads are going to look back at games like this where they had leads in the third period and left points on the table... and kick themselves.
Riku Helenius allowed 3 goals on 28 shots in the loss.
