    Volkov's winner sends Crunch back to the winner's circle.

    12:24 SYR Volkov (10), (Gaunce, Katchouk)
    19:00 SYR Yan (9), (Conacher, Dumont)(EN)

    Alexander Volkov and Nolan Valleau were the game's first and third stars.

    Syracuse built a nice three goal lead early in the Second Period only to surrender that lead entirely by early in the Third Period. It took a key goal by Volkov to help the Crunch get this one across the finish line. It was vital for a team that's been struggling a bit lately with a slightly sub-.500 record in their last ten games. Part of the issue has been the injury absence of Connor Ingram, who reportedly is close to returning, which has put an unsustainable workload on Eddie Pasquale over the past few weeks. Ingram's return could be a needed shot in the arm for Syracuse whenever it happens. The team remains three points out of the top spot in the North Division with one game in hand on Rochester and six in hand on Utica.

    Lightning lose a rare squeaker.

    TOR-4
    TB-2

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    9:48 TB Point (30), (Hedman, Stamkos)
    11:48 TOR Kadri (10), (Kapanen, Marleau)

    Second Period
    13:06 TOR Marleau (11), (Kadri, Zaitsev)
    13:43 TB Hedman (6), (Kucherov, Point)
    14:49 TOR Marner (19), (Tavares, Johnsson)

    Third Period
    19:09 TOR Hyman (8), (Zaitsev, Tavares)(EN)

    Brayden Point was the game's second star.

    I'm sure Toronto sports radio is already planning the Leafs' parade route based on the night's result, but truth be told I thought the Lightning played reasonably well and win with that effort 6-7 times out of 10. They just couldn't get the finish. When Nikita Kucherov caught Anderson off his angle late in the Third Period with the extra attacker on and a ton of room to the short side and proceeding to target shoot it back into Anderson's crest, you knew it wasn't meant to be. That happens. The Lightning have won more than their fair share of these kinds of games, but you have to expect you're going to run into that 3-4 times out of 10 every once in a while.

    Adam Erne was -1 with 1 shot in 11:21.

    Erik Cernak was +1 with 2 shots and 6 hits in 17:38.

    Crunch get the false hope goal, but fall in Utica.

    SYR-4
    UTI-5

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 5 goals on 27 shots for the loss before being replaced for the Third Period where Martin Ouellette made 2 saves on 2 shots the rest of the way.

    First Period
    0:25 UTI Pyatt (2), (Boucher)
    18:41 UTI Dahlen (10), (Kero, Boucher)(PP)

    Second Period
    3:00 UTI Gaudette (5), (Bancks, MacEwen)
    3:59 SYR Barre-Boulet (19), (Verhaeghe)
    4:57 SYR Dumont (4), (Katchouk, Raddysh)
    5:38 UTI Dahlen (11), (Gaunce, MacEwen)
    15:33 UTI Lind (1), (Gaudette, Blujus)

    Third Period
    1:02 SYR Dumont (5), (Raddysh, Valleau)
    7:03 SYR Volkov (9), (Foote, Yan)(PP)

    A three goal deficit in the Third Period in pro hockey remains a death sentence seemingly 99% of the time. You might get the false hope goal to draw within one, but it's so hard to get a game tied and even harder to get all the way across the finish line to a victory. Syracuse came within an eyelash of tying the game late, but that's why the false hope goal is called the false hope goal.

    Syracuse has fallen 3 points back of first place in the North Division and have burned off many of their games in hand, now holding just one game in hand on division leading Rochester, although they hold a staggering six games in hand on division co-leading Utica.

    No losing streak shall abide where Vasiy and the kittens reside.

    TB-2
    DAL-0

    Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 35 shots he faced for the victory.

    First Period
    7:55 TB Palat (7), (Stamkos, Gourde)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    9:15 TB Sergachev (2), (Cirelli)

    Vasilevskiy, Mikhail Sergachev, and Steven Stamkos were the game's three stars.

    This was far from a vintage Lightning performance from a possession standpoint, only managing 8 shots on goal in the final 40 minutes of the contest. Didn't matter. For the second time this season Vasilevskiy followed up a loss with a shutout that annihilated any chance of a losing streak.

    Mathieu Joseph had 2 penalty minutes and 6 hits in 9:21.

    Slow start finally bites the Lightning.

    TB-1
    NYI-5

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the lost. The third goal allowed was of the softer variety, and probably ultimately cost the Lightning any real shot of coming back in this one.

    First Period
    1:21 NYI Nelson (16), (Eberle, Barzal)(PP)
    4:27 NYI Clutterbuck (3), (Martin, Cizikas)
    4:43 NYI Toews (3), (unassisted)

    Second Period
    11:03 NYI Cizikas (11), (Martin, Clutterbuck)
    18:12 TB McDonagh (5), (Stamkos, Palat)

    Third Period
    NYI Bailey (10), (Lee, Leddy)(EN)

    If there's been a single negative to the Lightning's run over the past month and a half it's been a penchant to have sleepy, slow starts. Tonight the Lightning were down 3-0 before five minutes were even gone and they just never recovered playing on the tail end of a back-to-back. That strikes me as an intensity/focus issue, and sometimes it takes a loss like this for the point to be driven home. Unfortunately, the loss also came at the cost of Victor Hedman leaving the game with an apparent concussion after colliding with an official. All around, just a bad night.

    Mathieu Joseph was -1 with 3 shots and 1 hit in 11:48.

    Adam Erne had 7 hits in 10:14. The scorekeeper in Brooklyn sure does love handing out hits.

    Erik Cernak had 2 penalty minutes, 5 shots, and 2 hits in 16:39.

    David Hrenak (LAK, 2018 5th round pick) made 30 saves Saturday night for the Huskies as St. Cloud evened up the weekend series against the Bulldogs. After each team scored two goals in the 1st period, Hrenak shut the door for the remaining two periods, stopping 24 shots the rest of the way as the Huskies scored once in the 2nd and once in the 3rd to secure the win.

    St. Cloud State improves to 15-3-2 (7-1-2) and UMD drops to 12-6-2 (5-4-1 NCHC) on the season. The Huskies return home next weekend to the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center to host #14 Western Michigan while the Bulldogs hit the road in Oxford to take on #20 Miami.

    Season Totals: 20 GP, 10-7-17, +14, 10 PIM

    Bolt prospect Cole Guttman scored the OT game-winner 55 seconds into the extra session to push the third-ranked Pioneers past a pesky Mavericks club Saturday night to sweep the weekend series. UNO twice held one goal leads before Blackhawks prospect Ian Mitchell (CHI, 2017 2nd round pick) scored for Denver with 81 seconds left in regulation to force a fourth period. The game-winner was Guttman’s 10th goal of the season, good enough for 1st Star honors, and continues to lead all Division I collegiate freshmen in goals scored. Liam Finlay (undrafted) scored and added an assist as part of both of Denver’s equalizers. Mavericks netminder Evan Weninger (undrafted) made 39 saves – 73 total in the two weekend matches – but came away with a pair of losses to show.

    The Pioneers improve to 14-4-2 (6-4 NCHC) and looks ahead to a home-and-home series next weekend with conference and in-state rivals Colorado College.

After falling behind 3-0, the #13 ranked Sun Devils rallied in the 3rd to draw within a goal but could never notch the equalizer. Flames prospect Demetrios Koumontzis (CGY, 2018 4th round pick), former linemate of Bolt prospect Sammy Walker at Edina High School, tallied his 10th assist of the season when he helped set up a Brinson Pasichnuk (undrafted) hope goal for Arizona State with 21 seconds remaining in regulation. Lightning blueline prospect Alex Green missed his 12th game on the season due to injury.

    The #13 ranked Big Red improves to 9-5-1 (5-2-1 ECAC) and returns to ECAC conference play next weekend against Harvard and Dartmouth.

    Call Ducks prospect Blake McLaughlin (ANA, 2018 3rd round pick) the Irish killer after posting back-to-back game winners against Notre Dame Saturday night as the oft-maligned Gophers completed the unlikely road sweep against the #9 Irish. Tonight’s game winner carried a bit more of the dramatic as McLaughlin tallied the winner with just 8 seconds remaining in regulation to stun the Notre Dame faithful. Bolt prospect Sammy Walker fired a team-high 6 shots and Mat Robson (undrafted) once again shone for the Gophers with 34 saves for a weekend total of 76 saves on 78 shots to earn a pair of wins for Minnesota.

    The Golden Gophers improve to 9-8-4 (6-3-3 B1G) and continue their Big Ten road trip as they pull into East Lansing next weekend for a pair of games against the Spartans of Michigan State.

    Kucherov takes over Third Period and buries Buffalo.

    TB-5
    BUF-3

    Louis Domingue allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the win. He was overpushing pretty badly against odd man rush attempts and it burned him a couple of times, but goal support is a beautiful thing. I will give him credit, though, he made a couple of key ten bell saves in the Second Period to allow the Lightning to stay fully in the game.

    First Period
    0:26 TB Point (29), (Kucherov, Johnson)
    5:47 BUF Reinhart (10), (Skinner, Dahlin)
    19:50 BUF Thompson (6), (Girgensons, Sobotka)

    14:44 TB Stamkos (24), (Kucherov, Hedman)
    18:41 TB Callahan (5), (Cirelli, Killorn)(PP)

    Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars.

    Lightning games have gotten somewhat formulaic at this point. They haven't really played a First Period of note in a while, and tonight's flat start was nothing new. They hang around in a tied game or even trailing by a goal here or there. And then they either flip the switch and blow a team off the ice or simply wear a team out in the final frame. Tonight's game had the extra feature of Nikita Kucherov absolutely taking over the game in the Third Period. He's a very good player, but I could make an argument this was Kucherov going to another gear tonight to help put the Sabres, who are now outside the playoffs looking in, away.

    A word of note about the controversial Third Period officiating. First, Buffalo fans crying about the officiating need to recognize they outpaced the Lightning in power plays awarded 4-1. Call me crazy, but I know Buffalo isn't as pure as the driven snow and I know there were several missed calls Buffalo got away with. Second, on the Sergachev and Larsson dust up in the Third Period, recognize there was an uncalled slew foot moments before Sergachev snapped a hit Larsson in the mush. Yes, the Larsson call was a phantom cross check, but again, don't tell me Buffalo was as pure as the driven snow. Finally, the Eichel elbowing call to the back of McDonagh's head. He makes the argument that his elbow was tucked into his body and that McDonagh had his head down. Fine. Doesn't matter. It was a head shot. Period. Whatever you choose to call it, be it "elbowing" or whatever, the point is the league is trying to legislate head shots out of the game. It has to be a call. That was far more of a clear cut head shot than the Martel hit in Vancouver ever was, certainly.

    Adam Erne had 2 hits in 10:08. Felt like he was stapled to the bench most of the night.

    Erik Cernak was -2 with 2 shots, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 22:08.

    Third Period comeback falls short in Utica.

    SYR-2
    UTI-3

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss. It sure would be nice to get Ingram back soon.

    First Period
    2:28 UTI Dahlen (9), (Kero, MacEwen)(PP)

    Second Period
    18:52 UTI Kero (16), (Boucher, Pyatt)

    Third Period
    4:01 SYR Katchouk (6), (Gaunce, Andreoff)
    17:49 UTI Gaunce (12), (Hamilton, Bancks)
    19:31 SYR Conacher (15), (Valleau, Gaunce)

    Syracuse continues to struggle of late with starting slowly and then, also, getting goaltending that doesn't stop at least 9 of 10 shots. It's a frustrating sport when it's so much easier for the other team to score than yours.

    A week after knocking off then #9 Penn State, the Golden Gophers rolled into South Bend and upended the new #9 Fighting Irish in front of a national televised audience on NBCSN. Bolt prospect Sammy Walker scored his 5th goal of the season and fellow Lightning prospect Ryan Zuhlsdorf helped set up a Rem Pitlick’s (NAS, 2016 3rd round pick) short-handed empty netter with 11 seconds remaining. Minnesota’s freshmen line of Walker, Nathan Burke (undrafted) and Blake McLaughlin (ANA, 2018 3rd round pick) scored what would be the eventual game winner early in the 3rd to give the UMN a 2-0 lead. Walker was originally given the primary assist for his re-direct on the play, but that was later taken away. The the star of the game was Mat Robson (undrafted), who made 42 saves for the win.
