Omsk 7 @ Khabarovsk 1
Karri Ramo, Omsk, Win, 19/20, 1.00 GAA, .950 sv%

Ramo enjoyed the support of a 2 goal and 2 assist effort by Jaromir Jagr to capture his 12th win of the season. Ramo sits in second in the KHL in GAA. The Lightning's goaltending situation organization-wide is an embarassment of riches.

Season totals: 28 GP, 7-1-8, -1, 12 PIM

Lightning Reassign Lundin to Norfolk

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned defenseman Mike Lundin to the Norfolk Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today.

Lundin, a 6-foot-2, 197-pound defenseman from Burnsville, Minnesota, appeared in one game with the Lightning after being recalled last Saturday. He logged 13:29 in Tampa Bay’s 4-3 victory over Atlanta last night.

Lundin has appeared in 20 games with the Admirals this season scoring two goals and nine assists. His 11 points leads all defensemen and ranks fifth overall with Norfolk while tying him for 16th in the American Hockey League in scoring among defensemen. Lundin, who also led the Admirals in scoring by defensemen last season, has appeared in 71 career AHL games (all with Norfolk) and has six goals and 36 assists in those games.

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2
D Mark Barberio, Q: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-13-15, +4, 22 PIM

Moncton put themselves in a 3-0 hole and could never recover. Former Lightning prospect Michael Ward finished his season with Cape Breton last season after a trade from Lewiston. He was not offered a contract by Tampa Bay, but signed with Vancouver. The Canucks re-assigned him to Cape Breton, where as a co-captain he has 15 assists (0 goals) in 17 games so far this year. He had 17 points in 30 games with the Eagles after the trade last year; 17 in 35 with Lewiston.


Belleville Bulls 0 @ Brampton Battalion 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 21 GP, 4-4-8, E, 22 PIM
With Bulls: 8 GP, 2-3-5, +2, 2 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste earned his first two penalty minutes as a Bull.

Erie Otters 2 @ Owen Sound Attack 3
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
Season Totals: 6 GP, 3-2-1-0, 3.00 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Erie is on a 0-2-2-0 streak. Janus got the night off.

Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 11
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 25 GP, 6-8-14, +11, 8 PIM

This is confusing. Panik was coming off a two goal game, his team scored 11, had six even strength goals, and somehow Panik goes without a point and has a team-worst minus-two rating.

Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: Did not play.
Season Totals: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +7, 6 PIM

Ottawa is on a 5-0-1 streak and are now at .500 on the year.

AHL Game Day: 11-22 Admirals at Sharks



Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

First Period
WOR McCarthy, (2) (Zalewski, Mashinter), 18:08

Third Period
WOR Quirk, (1) (Callahan), 1:10
WOR Curadeau, (1) (Groulx, Stalock), 4:12
NOR Jones, (5) (Smolenak, Graham), 16:01

Blair Jones was named the game's third star. That's 4 goals and 12 points in his last 10 games. You wonder if and when Jones will get an NHL shot.

Norfolk drops back below .500 and now must regroup back at home in Norfolk.

NHL Game Night: 11-21 Lightning at Hurricanes

Strange. I had forgotten what a regulation loss feels like.


Mike Smith allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

First Period
TB 15:18, St Louis 5 (Foster, Lecavalier)(PP)

Second Period
CAR 2:35, Ruutu 6 (Whitney, Pitkanen)(PP)
CAR 13:46, Jokinen 6 (Corvo, LaRose)

Third Period
CAR 15:37, LaRose 1 (Samsonov, Corvo)

It was a tough spot to be in, flying 5 hours cross country. The important thing is to now allow the loss to snowball. They have Atlanta tomorrow night and that's a game they really need to get two points out of.

Steve Downie had 1 shot and, oh my gosh, 7 hits in 15:01. He's really playing well, and tomorrow night's game against Atlanta will be his 82nd career NHL game, which graduates him from prospect status here on BP.

Zenon Konopka had 1 hit and was 78% on draws in 7:03.

Paul Szczechura had 1 shot in 12:33.

James Wright had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 12:18.

Victor Hedman was -2 in 22:45 and really got rocked on a hit trying to cross the opposing blueline on a rush. He seems a little rudderless at times without Matias Ohlund around.
