    Wichita Thunder 3 at Tulsa Oilers 4 SO

    F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals (ECHL): 12 GP, 5-7-12, +3, 8 PIM, 36 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 12 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 14 PIM, 11 SOG

    After falling behind 3-0, the Thunder once again mount a spirited comeback scoring the next three and forcing overtime. Unfortunately, hanging 49 shots on the Tulsa goalie wasn't enough to avoid the shootout loss. Lightning prospects Danick Gauthier and Daniel Milan both notched assists, with Gauthier's coming on the power play. Gauthier was one of four Thunder shooters that failed to convert in the skill contest to decide the outcome. Wichita hosts the Mavericks from Missouri Saturday night before traveling back to Tulsa for a rematch against these Oilers.

    Deck a little too stacked.


    Evgeny Nabokov allowed 5 goals on 36 shots for the loss. He actually performed better than his last couple of starts, but the Clutterbuck shorthanded goal was from a less than prime angle and was the turning point of the game. Soft.

    First Period
    11:53 TB Killorn (4), (Garrison, Drouin)

    Second Period
    0:39 NYI Clutterbuck (2), (unassisted)(SH)
    12:23 NYI Grabovski (4), (Nielsen, Okposo)
    13:26 NYI Strome (3), (de Haan)

    Third Period
    0:36 NYI Visnovsky (2), (Nielsen, Tavares)(PP)
    2:14 TB Palat (5), (Carle, Kucherov)
    8:55 NYI Cizikas (2), (Okposo, Nelson)

    This was just one of those nights. The Lightning weren't super flat, but certain players like Callahan who've been lights out lately were clearly not in their best form after the emotional tilt with the Rangers last night. You couple that with the fact the Islanders have basically been off for a week before this game and throw in a pinch of Nabby in net and two dashes of some puck luck for the Isles and this one got out of hand.

    Fortunately, the Lightning didn't really desperately need points out of this game. They close the second 10 game segment of the season with 28 points, giving them 4 insurance points heading into segment three of the year. 12 in 10, do it again.

    Cedric Paquette had 1 blocked shot and was 50% on draws in 2:40 and left the game with what appeared to be either a foot or ankle injury after blocking a shot. His absence was noticeable.

    Jonathan Drouin had a helper and was -1 in 10:28. He had one amazing pass on the power play to Kucherov that could've easily netted a goal, but Nikita was stunned in amazement that Drouin was even able to thread the puck through and didn't have the reflexes to get it on frame.

    Vladislav Namestnikov was 33% on draws in 13:57. He had legs, but looking at the stat sheet reveals nothing was doing.

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 16 shots for the victory, and the 1 he allowed was a deflection of a pass off his own defenseman, Garrison. He didn't have a lot of work, but he handled what came his way well.

    First Period
    6:50 TB Kucherov (7), (Johnson, Palat)
    14:20 TB Callahan (7), (Stamkos, Filppula)(PP)

    Second Period
    0:32 NYR St. Louis (7), (Brassard, Stepan)(PP)
    14:08 TB Stamkos (12), (Filppula)
    18:42 TB Killorn (3), (Johnson, Palat)

    Third Period
    17:09 TB Callahan (8), (Stamkos)

    Steven Stamkos, Ryan Callahan, and Tyler Johnson were the game's three stars.

    That was an absolute squash of a game. It was a no contest. It was almost unfair to watch the decaying corpse of the Rangers squad picked apart piece by piece by the speed and youth of the Lightning. And the Lightning didn't let up in this one. They made a point tonight. They knew everyone in the league was looking to see how they'd handle their first game against Marty since the trade, and they crushed the Rangers. They broken their damned backs in that game.

    Best of all, as of this posting, the Rangers would have a lottery pick and would have the 11th most ping pong balls. That's right, Sather paid Callahan and 2 1st round picks for the privilege of watching his team get pounded like that tonight. Enjoy, Slats.

    The Lightning have now banked 4 insurance points with 1 game left to go in the second 10 game set of the season. Things are looking outstanding, thus far, with the Lightning holding the second most points in the NHL right now. They also lead the league in goals by a mile and their +22 goal differential is second only to Pittsburgh's +25.

    Cedric Paquette had 3 shots, 2 hits, 1 blocked shot, and was 67% on draws in 16:25 of ice time. He was dangerous offensively and responsible defensively, and 16:25 of ice time is telling me the coaching staff likely doesn't want him going anywhere.

    Jonathan Drouin had 1 shot and 2 hits in 13:18. He had a goal wiped out on an Alex Killorn goaltender interference call.

    Vladislav Namestnikov had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots and was 33% on draws in 13:51. He got the biggest compliment of all when Phil Esposito told him he plays a lot like Larionov. Impressive.

    Season totals (ECHL): 6 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 0 PIM, 9 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    A night after being scratched, Lightning camper Mike Aviani pots Florida's 3rd goal of the 1st period in Sunday afternoon's road game victory over the Gwinnett Gladiators. Jeff Costello assisted on Aviani's goal, the night after scoring his first professional goal. Allen York was rather pedestrian in net, allowing 3 goals on 22 shots, but when your offense puts a touchdown up on the scoreboard you don't have to be stellar to get the win. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev was whistled 55 seconds into the game for his first penalty of the season. Both teams had their power play clicking at 50%, but the high octane Everblade offense overwhelmed the Gladiators amid a 40 shot barrage. Florida captured all six points on the weekend three-in-three road trip, and the Everblades return to Estero 1st on the table in the East Division and 2nd in the conference behind Fort Wayne. Gwinnett makes the 9-hour trip down I-75 from Duluth to Estero for a back-to-back rematch against the Everblades next Friday and Saturday night.

    Missouri Mavericks 1 at Wichita Thunder 3

    F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
    Season totals (ECHL): 11 GP, 5-6-11, +4, 8 PIM, 32 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 11 GP, 0-2-2, -3, 14 PIM, 10 SOG

    Wichita earned a much needed victory Sunday afternoon against the visiting Missouri Mavericks, and once again Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier was in the thick of the scoring. Gauthier was credited with the primary assists on both of the Thunder's first and third goals, with that 3rd goal being a crucial power play insurance marker with just 85 seconds left in the game. Gauthier finishes the 4-game week with a gaudy stat line of 2-4-5 with 20 shots and a +3 rating. The Thunder next plays Tuesday night in Tulsa against the Oilers.
