Both Lightning prospects were named stars of the game as Mitch Faddenâ€™s Hurricanes squeaked by Riku Heleniusâ€™ Thunderbirds 3-2. All three Lethbridge goals, including Fadden's eleventh of the season, came on the power play. Helenius has lost five straight appearances, but twice in that time he was named a star of the game. He has at least 30 saves in 4 of those 5 games. Seattle managed only 18 shots against Lethbridge.

Damian Cristodero of the St. Pete Times reports Mathieu Darche and Craig MacDonald both cleared waivers today and have been assigned to Norfolk. Both should bring instant offense to a club struggling to score goals and lacking true centers. Also, Matt Smaby was assigned to the Admirals.
The Lightning is now down to just 20 players, which reportedly was their goal once everyone was healthy. Doug Janik has won the No.6 defenseman job outright.
