    Norfolk harpoons its 14th win in a row.

    NOR-3
    CT-1

    Jaroslav Janus stopped 26 of 27 shots for the win. Janus has now reeled off 6 straight wins and moved his save percentage to .905, just 1 point back of Dustin Tokarski's .906 save percentage before he Oberg'ed off to join the Lightning.

    First Period
    CT Grant, (8) (Tanski), 8:11

    Second Period
    NOR Angelidis, (14) (Hutchings, Devos), 12:17

    Third Period
    NOR Kostka, (9) (Johnson), 1:56
    NOR Johnson, (23) (Conacher), 19:18

    Janus and Tyler Johnson were the game's first and second stars, as TJ continues to progress toward becoming an AHL superstar.

    Now, as the Admirals attempt to chase down history, they have a big challenge tomorrow afternoon in Bridgeport. We may well see the season debut of Pat Nagle with a shot at a page in the record books on the line. Bridgeport currently leads the Northeast Division, so they're no pushovers and the Admirals may well see them in the playoffs. Now it gets even more interesting.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 3 @ KalPa 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, SO, 18/18, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 32 GP, 20-9-1, 7 SO, 1.62 GAA, .936 sv%

    Riku Helenius and JYP dominated the league's top team, KalPa, 3-0, to move themselves within an eyelash of clinching a first round playoff bye. Helenius posted his 7th shutout of the season and was named third star of the game. He is now second in the league in save percentage, first in GAA, and first in shutouts. His shutout mark is particularly impressive given he was in a tandem starter situation for much of the first half of the season. With 2 games remaining in the regular season, JYP's magic number is 1 point: 1 point gained or 1 point lost by 7th place Karpat, to clinch the opening round bye. They face Jokerit next on Tuesday.

    KHL Playoff (Russia):
    It's been all chalk so far in the KHL playoffs as all higher seeds have won in the Quarterfinal round, thus far. Novgorod knocked off Dynamo Riga 2-0 today in Game Seven to finalize the combatants in the Semis in the West. In the East, Magnitogorsk and Astana go in Game Seven tomorrow, after which we'll know who top seed Chelyabinsk will face in the Semis.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 1 @ Novokuznetsk Jr. 5
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 5 SOG
    Regular Season totals (MHL): 41 GP, 11-20-31, +11, 66 PIM
    Regular season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-0-0, +8, 4 PIM
    Playoff totals (KHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    While the big club awaits for a Semifinal opponent, Nikita Nesterov was back with the junior team today in its 5-1 loss to Novokuznetsk Jr. He took a minor for slashing in the contest. The game was Chelyabinsk Jr.'s final contest of the regular season. The team did not qualify for the playoffs out of the Ural-Siberia Division, finishing 6th of 8 teams. Expect Nesterov to be a Black Ace and spot starter for the KHL side for the remainder of their playoff run.

    KHK MVD Jr. 4 @ CSKA Jr. 5 (OT)
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., DNP
    Regular Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 24-19-43, +16, 40 PIM
    Regular Season totals (KHL): 18 GP, 1-3-4, -1, 4 PIM

    In the "just not fair" department, CSKA, which was eliminated from the KHL postseason, sent former Blue Jackets first rounder Nikita Filatov down to the MHL today. All he did was post 1-2-3 to lead CSKA Jr. to a 5-4 OT win over KHK MVD Jr. Nikita Kucherov did not appear in the match. CSKA Jr. has qualified for the postseason, finishing 2nd in the Central Division, and will have the opportunity to defend their MHL title in the playoffs. One would think if they're allowed to play Filatov, they might have a really good chance to do just that.

    SM-slutspel Quarterfinals (Sweden)
    (7) AIK 3 @ (1) Lulea 6
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 6 SOG
    Playoff totals: 1 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Regular eason totals: 53 GP, 15-10-25, +12, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju had a power play goal and even strength assist in Lulea's 6-3 Game One thumping of AIK. Game Two is Monday.

    Dartmouth Big Green 3 @ No. 13 Cornell Big Red 4 (2OT)
    ECAC Quarterfinals: Cornell leads best-of-3 series 1-0

    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 19 GP, 1-6-7, +13, 12 PIM

    Gotovets was back in the Cornell lineup after missing the Big Red’s last two games because of an undisclosed injury. He helped Cornell to win Game 1 between the two large colors, 4-3 in double overtime. He earned the secondary assist on the overtime winner scored by Sean Whitney (undrafted), his first goal of the season. Game 2 is Saturday at Cornell.

    Yale Bulldogs 2 @ Harvard Crimson 1 (OT)
    ECAC quarterfinals: Yale leads best-of-3 series 1-0

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 29 GP, 18-18-36, +6, 45 PIMs

    Yale stole Game 1 against their hated rivals by beating the Crimson in overtime in Harvard’s barn. Penguins pick Kenny Agostino had the game winner, his 14th goal of the year. Game 2 is Saturday night at Harvard.

    No.15 Michigan State Spartans 0 @ No. 11 Miami (Ohio) RedHawks 6
    CCHA Quarterfinals: Miami leads best-of-3 series 1-0

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 2-2-4, +3, 0 PIM, 8 SOG, *First Star*
    Season totals: 32 GP, 11-14-25, +16, 10 PIM

    Mullin scored two goals in his first collegiate playoff game and was named first star as the RedHawks crushed visiting Michigan State 6-0 on Friday. Mullin, who scored on a rebound and again on a backhander, has nine points in his last three games. His eight shots on goal led Miami. Game 2 is Saturday in Oxford, Ohio.

    Note: Brendan O’Donnell (North Dakota) is out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

    Quinnipiac Bobcats 2 @ Colgate Raiders 4
    ECAC Quarterfinals: Colgate leads best-of-3 series 1-0

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 38 GP, 8-28-36, -1, 12 PIM

    The Raiders drew first blood in their quarterfinal series with Quinnipiac when Colgate got two third period goals to break a 2-2 tie with the Bobcats. Lightning prospect Matt Peca extended his point streak to six games with an assist. The two teams play again Saturday at Colgate. Though Colgate is seeded higher in the tournament, Quinnipiac is ahead of the Raiders in votes in the latest USCHO poll. Both teams are just outside the top-20. Earlier on Friday, Peca, Cornell forward Brian Ferlin, and Harvard defenseman Patrick McNally were named finalists for the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Year Award.

    No.20 Lake Superior State Lakers 2 @ No. 16 Western Michigan Broncos 4
    CCHA Quarterfinals: WMU leads best-of-3 series 1-0

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 36 GP, 1-10-11, +6, 45 PIM

    Witkowski registered a point for the fifth time in six games as the Broncos took Game 1 of their CCHA quarterfinal series against LSSU, 4-2. Coveted NCAA free agent defenseman Dan DeKeyser had an assist on WMU’s empty net goal and was plus-2 for the Broncos. According to the Tampa Tribune, the Lightning have a good shot at signing DeKeyser if he chooses to leave school after the season. Game 2 is Saturday night in the Zoo (at WMU).

    Tri-City Storm 0 @ Omaha Lancers 4

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 30 saves on 33 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 26 GP, 12-14-1, 3.13 GAA, .909 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox carried a shutout into the third period before conference-leading Omaha scored early in the final frame to take a 1-0 lead. They scored three more times, including an empty net goal, before the game ended. The Storm fell out of the last playoff spot and are now one point behind Sioux City, who beat Waterloo 7-2 and has a game in hand on Tri-City.

    QMJHL

    Saint John Sea Dogs 3 @ Chicoutimi Sagueneens 4 (SO)

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 3 Hits
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 44-35-79, +41, 61 PIM

    Twice Gauthier tied the game for Saint John, but at the end of the shootout with the game on the line Gauthier couldn’t come through one final time. Kings second rounder Christopher Gibson stopped two of three shooters in the skills competition for the victory. With his two goals Friday, Gauthier moved into second place on his own in the Q goal scoring race. He’s still six behind Acadie-Bathurst’s Zach O’Brien (undrafted).

    Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 6 (OT)

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-0-1, +2, 2 PIM (holding), 0 hits
    Season Totals: 49 GP, 6-25-31, -11, 49 PIM

    Janosik was back in the lineup after missing last weekend with an illness and scored his sixth of the year for Gatineau to open the game’s scoring. He took a holding penalty in overtime, however, and the Foreurs capitalized on it with the game winning goal.

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 2 @ Victoriaville Tigres 5

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (high sticking), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 2-8-10, -17, 67 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 26 GP, 2-3-5, -4, 36 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Canucks third rounder David Honzik stopped all but two shots for the Tigres.

    OHL

    London Knights 5 @ Guelph Storm 1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 22-48-70, +19, 50 PIM

    Namestnikov broke a three-game scoreless streak with a goal and an assist Friday as London completed a two-game home-and-home sweep of Guelph. With two points he reached 70 for the season, which establishes a new career high for the Lightning first round draft pick. He also set a career high for penalty minutes in a season with two more added to his totals.

    Florida Everblades 0 @ Wheeling Nailers 1

    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 2-5-7, -1, 6 PIM
    D Sebastien Piche, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-3-3, +2, 8 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 20 GP, 0-9-9, -10, 2 PIM (Norfolk property)

    Florida got a strong game in net from Carolina prospect John Muse, but this goaltending duel was won by Wheeling’s Peter Delmas, who stopped all 21 shots he faced. Delmas was a second round pick of the Avalanche in 2008. The ‘Blades regular starter, Pat Nagle, was recalled to AHL Norfolk this week after the Lightning called up Norfolk starter Dustin Tokarski. New Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche (pictured), who had 33 points in 48 ECHL games last year, is still looking for his first goal with Florida. The Everblades sit in eighth in the East, two points up on ninth place Reading with a game in hand on the Royals.

    Lucky number 13.

    NOR-3
    ADK-1

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the victory. He picked up his 5th consecutive victory tonight, and don't look now but the save percentage has creeped up to .903.

    First Period
    NOR Johnson, (21) (Panik), 8:54
    NOR Picard, (5) (Palat, Smith), 10:31 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (22) (Panik, Cote), 19:30

    Second Period
    ADK Hamel, (17) (Kessel, Akeson), 13:19 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Tyler Johnson and Richard Panik were the game's first and second stars. Johnson's been on a hellacious tear the past dozen games, posting 7 goals and 18 points over that span. He's also had back-to-back 2 goal games, for that matter. The Panik attack has meshed well on TJ's line recently and on the power play with back-to-back multi point games of his own.

    Quote:
    Does a baker's dozen wins during the stretch run of a season and becoming the first AHL team to hit 40 wins make you the frontrunner for AHL coach of the year? We think it does. Only one coach in the AHL can claim to have a winning streak that matches the number of donuts that Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau eats on an average morning, and only one coach runs big surpluses with a +57 goal differential. Only one man in the AHL builds a bridge to the future as he wins in the present, with 6 rookies in his lineup tonight. That man is Jon Cooper. A bold vision: less goals against, more goals for, more wins. The American Hockey League needs Jon Cooper. Now, more than ever.

    Guelph Storm 1 @ London Knights 4

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 48 PIM

    With a win over Guelph on Thursday the London Knights clinched the Midwest Division title. Namestnikov was scoreless for the third game in a row and seventh time in his last nine games. Of course, he has a five point game squeezed in that time span. Of concern is Namesntikov has registered a minus rating in five of those nine games, as opposed to only two games in which he’s finished on the plus side of even.

    Lightning skaters hang rookie out to dry.

    TB-2
    WSH 3 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the overtime loss. The final 2 goals were a complete abdication of defensive responsibility by the players in front of Tokarski. You have to do better in front of a rookie making his first start. Overall, I thought Tic moved well and didn't look out of place. He deserved better than to have the team in front of him get outshot 16-3 in the final period and overtime. I suspect Garon would've gotten about the same result had he been healthy and between the pipes.

    First Period
    WSH Aucoin (2), (Alzner, Halpern), 17:08

    Second Period
    TB Malone (12), (Stamkos, Purcell)(PP), 7:25
    TB Purcell (20), (St. Louis, Clark)(PP), 18:42

    Third Period
    WSH Johansson (13), (Wideman), 16:02

    Overtime
    WSH Ovechkin (27), (Orlov, Chimera), 4:09

    Teddy Purcell was the game's second star.

    Way too many unforced errors by the Lightning defense in the final frame. The Lightning move to 3 points out of the 8th playoff spot behind Washington and Winnipeg, for the moment, with the Jets and Canucks playing later tonight. They also linger 5 points back of the Panthers in the division. They'll be kicking themselves for how much they let themselves down in the third period of this game.

    Keith Aulie was -1 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 11:18.

    Tim Wallace had 4 hits in 7:12.

    J.T. Wyman had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 14:53.

    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 31 GP, 19-9-1, 6 SO, 1.68 GAA, .935 sv%

    Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin's goal with 2:56 left in regulation broke a 3-3 tie and lifted JYP to a key 4-3 win over Lukko. The goal capped a hat trick for Perrin, who was named second star of the game. The victory moved JYP to third on the SM-liiga table, 4 points ahead of 7th place Assat, as the club tries to cling to its first round bye in the playoffs. JYP has three games remaining in the regular season, starting with KalPa on Saturday.

    (5) Cherepovets 1 @ (4) Mytischi 2
    Mytischi Wins the Series 4-2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 28/30, 2.05 GAA, .933 sv%
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 2-4-0, 1 SO, 1.32 GAA, .958 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 16-11-1, 6 SO, 2.37 GAA, .925 sv%

    Ex-NHLer Nikolai Zherdev's goal with 5:00 left in regulation capped a 2 goal third period comeback and lifted Mytischi to a 2-1 Game Six win over Cherepovets. Severstal was eliminated from the playoffs in the defeat. Ex-Lightning first rounder Nikita Alexeev had Cherepovets' only goal.

    St. Petersburg, Dynamo Moscow, and Mytischi are through to the Semifinals in the West. Novgorod and Riga go on Saturday in a Game Seven matchup to determine who else makes it to the next round.

    MHL (Russia Jr.)
    KHK MVD Jr. 2 @ CSKA Jr. 4

    In a rare event, Nikita Kucherov was held off the board in CSKA Jr.'s 4-2 win over KHK MVD Jr. The two teams rematch on Saturday.

    SM-Slutspel (Sweden):
    Lulea's opening round series with AIK will begin on Saturday in Lulea. Due to a peculiarity in the Elitserien playoff format, Johan Harju and top seed Lulea get the 7th seed, AIK, instead of the 8th seed, MODO.

    Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 4 @ Victoriaville Tigres 3 (SO)

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM (hooking, high sticking double major), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 2-8-10, -16, 65 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 25 GP, 2-3-5, -3, 34 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Milan’s modest two-game point streak was snapped. He has 14 of his 34 penalty minutes with the Tigres in his last four games. With just a handful of games left before the playoffs, Victoriaville (40-18-1-5) seems locked into the fifth seed, just ahead of Halifax.
