Season Totals: 8 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM

This was a 1-1 game in the first period before BC ran away with it. The Catamounts will likely fall out of the polls this week.

NHL Game Night: 11-14 Kings at Lightning

The Lightning finally work in one of their mandatory 3-4 late game goal wave off hosings.

LA-2
TB-1 (SO)

Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 30 shots and only 1 of 3 shooters to score in the shootout, but still took the loss. I'm thinking the Finnish goaltenders in the organization are feeling discriminated against for lack of goal support tonight.

Shootout
LA- Kopitar
TB- NONE

A controversial wave off of an Andrei Meszaros overtime goal ushered the Lightning into the shootout where they re-established their season-long streak of futility after a brief taste of success against Minnesota.

Steve Downie had 2 penalty minutes and 3 hits in 13:49.

Zenon Konopka had 15 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 6:02.

Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 13:25.

James Wright had 1 shot in 8:57.

Victor Hedman had 3 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 26:13.

AHL Game Night: 11-14 Admirals at River Rats

Another one gets away from the Admirals late.

NOR-1
ALB-2 (OT)

Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the overtime loss. That's a tough fate for a goaltender who played over 58 minutes of shutout hockey tonight. He didn't get the goal support he's become accustomed to, however.

ALB Dwyer, (8) (Carson, FitzGerald), 18:05

Overtime
ALB Boychuk, (5) (Dwyer, Paiement), 1:46

Radek Smolenak was named the game's third star. If I told you coming into the year that it would take 17 games for Radek to get his first goal and the team would be .500 and sitting in fourth in the division without his goal production, you'd have laughed at me, I'm sure.

I give the Admirals a ton of credit for mounting a serious third period comeback bid in a tough barn. Blair Jones is officially on fire with 8 points in his past 4 games.

Shootout
MIN- NONE
TB- Lecavalier, Stamkos

After frittering away 3-4 points already this season by allowing opponents to tie a game late and then losing in the shootout, the Lightning flipped the script to steal 2 points from Minnesota and stay unbeaten in regulation at home.

Steve Downie had a big goal to key the comeback and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 11:49. He's 5 games from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.

Zenon Konopka had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 7:17. And, thankfully, he chose not to commit suicide by fighting Boogard.

Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and was 75% on draws in 11:54. He brought some jump back to the lineup.

James Wright was -1 with 1 shot in 12:41.

Victor Hedman had 1 shot in 24:02 in his first game back from the concussion. He was wildly out of position on Minnesota's first goal, but was decent otherwise.

Kazionov potted his second goal of the season to open the game's scoring and played 11:46 in the match. Karri Ramo remains out, presumably due to injury.

Togliatti 3 @ Dynamo Minsk 4 (SO)
Vasily Koshechkin, Togliatti, Loss, 17/20, 2.77 GAA, .850 sv%
Season totals: 21 GP, 7-12, 2 SO, 2.19 GAA, .917 sv%

Koshechkin allowed both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session to score to take the shootout loss in his first game back from the Karjala Cup.

Kazan 1 @ Dynamo Riga 3
Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 22 GP, 6-1-7, -4, 10 PIM

Nizhnekamsk 1 @ Dynamo Moscow 3
Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 22 GP, 2-4-6, -5, 12 PIM

Harju helped wash the bitter taste of a bad Karjala Cup tournament out of his mouth with a helper on Linus Omark's 9th goal of the KHL season in the second period of a 3-1 win. The big center/winger played 16:06 in the match and was 67% on draws.
