    It's a dozen, now.

    SPR-1
    NOR-5

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 18 shots for his 27th win of the season. That ties his career high for wins set in his rookie season 2 years ago. He is also up to 8 victories in his last 8 starts.

    First Period
    NOR Conacher, (31) (Gudas, Devos), 7:04
    NOR Ouellet, (14) (Angelidis, Picard), 8:28
    NOR Johnson, (19) (Jackson, Angelidis), 14:32 (SH)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SPR Regner, (2) (Savard, MacLeod), 8:15
    NOR Panik, (13) (Conacher, Barberio), 10:19 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (20) (Palat, Panik), 11:00

    Tyler Johnson (pictured), Mike Angelidis, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars. Johnson's now tied for 4th in the league in rookie scoring. He's got no shot of catching Conacher, but there's no denying how impressive of a debut campaign he's had. With 20 goals now, he's threatening to break into the top-20 in the AHL in that category, as well.

    Just to reiterate my previous point about Jon Cooper deserving coach of the year, the Admirals rookies tonight had 4 goals and 8 points tonight, combined, between Conacher, Devos, Johnson, Panik, and Palat. That's a 12 game winning streak where your sled dogs are just puppies, which in my mind is indicative of excellent coaching.

    Fortunately for the Admirals, there was no let down thanks to a little pre-game altercation that got their juices going and probably helped propel them out to the 3-0 first period lead. Springfield's got muscle in the physical department, but they probably are regretting getting the Admirals, who have much more muscle in the offensive department, ready to go right out of the gate tonight.

    Panik attack, y'all!

    The Admirals expanded their division lead to 10 points over the idle Pens and they maintained a 12 point buffer on Hershey, with the Bears winning tonight. Hershey has 2 games in hand on the Admirals and the Pens have 3, but things look very good right now in the division.

    In the conference, Syracuse screamed past St. John's with 4 goals in the final frame to steal a 6-4 win. So, the Admirals now hold an 8 point lead in the conference with St. John's still holding 5 games in hand.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 4 @ Pelicans 6
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Loss, 30/35, 5.07 GAA, .857 sv%
    Season totals: 30 GP, 19-8-1, 6 SO, 1.67 GAA, .935 sv%

    Riku Helenius and JYP blew a 3-0 first period lead and fell 6-4 to Lahti. Ex-Lightning draft pick Radek Smolenak had 2 goals and 1 assist in the comeback win for Pelicans. JYP faces HIFK next on Tuesday. JYP has 5 games left in their regular season.

    KHL (Russia):
    Western Conference Quarterfinals
    (5)Cherepovets 2 @ (4) Mytischi 1 (OT)
    Mytischi Leads the Series 2-1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Win, 34/35, 0.87 GAA, .971 sv%
    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 1-2-0, 0 SO, 1.27 GAA, .958 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 16-11-1, 6 SO, 2.37 GAA, .925 sv%

    Ondrej Nemec scored 8:37 into overtime to lift Cherepovets to a 2-1 win over Mytischi in Game Three of their opening round series. Goaltender Vasily Koshechkin finally got some payoff in the win column, now having allowed just 4 goals in the series' first 3 games. Game Four is Sunday.

    Elsewhere, Denis Parshin's overtime goal lifted CSKA to a 3-2 win over St. Petersburg, cutting SKA's series lead to 3-2 over the former Red Army squad. Nikita Kucherov did not appear in the match for CSKA.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 1 @ Skelleftea 3
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 15-9-24, +10, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju scored the game's opening goal, but Lulea still fell 3-1 to Skelleftea. Second place Skelleftea no doubt got a moral victory from the win, but Lulea has already clinched the Elitserien regular season title. They'll play Vaxjo on Tuesday in the final match of the regular season.

    USHL

    Omaha Lancers 6 @ Tri-City Storm 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 30 saves on 35 shots

    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox couldn’t make it three straight games with a first star award as the first place Lancers put five pucks by him on Friday on their way to a big win. Tri-City is still one point out of a playoff spot in the West.

    QMJHL

    PEI Rocket 1 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 8

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 0-3-3, +4, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 0 Hits, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 41-34-75, +39, 61 PIM

    Fresh off signing a 3-year free agent contract with the Lightning, forward Danick Gauthier had three assists to help the first place Sea Dogs to an 8-1 win over last place PEI. Gauthier is 10th in the league in total points now with 75. Florida Panthers first rounder Jonathan Huberdeau had four goals on the night for Saint John. The Rocket was outshot 41-15. To put things into perspective, Saint John leads the league with 94 points. PEI has 38.

    Drummondville Voltigeurs 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 4 (SO)

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play (illness)
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

    Janosik was not in the lineup Friday night due to a virus that’s spreading through the Gatineau locker room. Sound familiar?

    Val-d’Or Foreurs 3 @ Victoriaville Tigres 2 (SO)

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (slashing, interference), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 2-7-9, -17, 55 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 22 GP, 2-2-4, -4, 24 PIM

    OHL

    Oshawa Generals 2 @ London Knights 7

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 1-14-15, +3, 22 PIM
    With Oshawa: 15 GP, 1-3-4, +1, 4 PIM

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 44 PIM

    It’s over! Schemitsch’s (pictured) streak of 86 regular season games without a goal came to an end when he scored an unassisted marker on Friday night in London. It was his first goal since the first game of the 2010-2011 season when he was with Owen Sound. On the other side of the ice, former Lightning prospect camper Seth Griffith had a hat trick for the Knights. He has 44 goals this season. His usual set-up man, Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov, was moved off Griffith’s line.

    Vermont Catamounts 1 @ No. 1 Boston College Eagles 5

    F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    Vermont will play its final game of the season Saturday against No.1 Boston College. Marshall, a senior, was expected back in the lineup at some point this season, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. He has played in only two games this year. Unless he is granted a medical redshirt, his collegiate career is through.

    Brown Bears 4 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 1

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 7-24-31, +1, 12 PIM

    Upset! Last place Brown defeated fifth-seeded Quinnipiac 4-1 in the Bobcats’ home barn on Friday to take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three ECAC first round series. Peca has now assisted on Quinnipiac’s last seven goals, dating back a week. Game 2 is Saturday night at Quinnipiac.

    Kalamazoo Wings 3 @ Florida Everblades 9

    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, -1, 1 SOG, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 2-5-7, -1, 6 PIM
    D Sebastien Piche, FLA: 0-1-1, +1, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 4 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-2-2, -1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 18 GP, 0-8-8, -10, 2 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 36 saves on 39 shots
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 19-14-0-3, 2.90 GAA, .903 sv%, 1 SO

    Florida scored six times in the third period on their way to a huge win over the visiting Wings. Charlotte goalie John Muse was back in an Everblades sweater but Lightning prospect Pat Nagle got the start in net for the ‘Blades and earned his 19th win of the season. Despite the lopsided goal differential, Florida only outshot Kalamazoo by one. Rylan Galiardi had a hat trick plus an assist for Florida and defenseman Bobby Raymond was plus-6 on the night. Raymond came out of the same Burlington Cougars program in Ontario that produced Cory Conacher.

    Belief is growing.

    NYR-3
    TB-4 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 19 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NYR Anisimov (13), (McDonagh), 10:09

    Second Period
    NYR Gaborik (31), (Stepan, Richards)(PP), 2:43
    TB Pyatt (7), (Connolly, Lee), 7:09

    Third Period
    TB Purcell (18), (St. Louis, Stamkos), 3:37
    TB Stamkos (45), (Lee, Purcell), 10:17
    NYR Dubinsky (7), (Gaborik, Stralman), 16:33

    Overtime
    TB Malone (11), (Purcell, Brewer), 1:58

    Ryan Malone and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars. Who has two thumbs and a fantasy team that cleaned up in this game? This guy! (I've got Stamkos, Purcell, Gaborik, and Stepan. Yes, you should be envious.)

    The Lightning had some moments where they got hemmed in their own zone tonight, but this new group of d-men seems much more mobile and much more positionally sound than the pre-deadline edition. They're more capable of riding out surges and they helped stake the Lightning to a nice 31-19 shots advantage tonight against the conference's top team. They deserved this win tonight, and they're now just 4 points out of the last playoff spot (and 6 back in the division). A win tomorrow night in Carolina would put them no worse than 2 points out of 8th place, and possibly also 4 back in the division. Tomorrow night is THE game, and I've got a feeling this group of players will be flying tomorrow. They've got the scent of blood in the water. I just wish Vinny Lecavalier and Victor Hedman were healthy for this run, because if they were the Lightning might well be worth betting on making it in after tonight's game.

    Brian Lee still doesn't fully know Guy Boucher's system, but you can already tell that Steve Yzerman robbed Ottawa in that deal. I might've done a little cartwheel when I saw the press release for the trade, because this guy was expected to be a stud righty-shot 2-way defenseman when he was drafted in the top-10 by the Senators. Nothing against Gilroy, who is pretty athletic in his own right, but this guy is a potential thoroughbred. I was shocked Ottawa gave up on him. He's mobile. He sticks his nose in. And, what I really like and I think even the Lightning may not have fully appreciated, this guy is cooler than Billy Dee Williams in the offensive zone. You saw poise and command tonight from the point from Lee, and it led to 2 assists. I love that pick up. This guy's got a chance to be a permanent fixture for the Lightning, whether he plays on the top pair with Hedman or the second pair in the future.

    Keith Aulie was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 10:39 in his Lightning debut. It was too small a sample set of minutes to really say much one way or the another except: #3? Man, they gave you Eric Charron's number? What did you do to get the equipment guy that mad at you already? They gave that number to Sergey Gusev and by the time it was through with him he never played another NHL game. Be afraid, Aulie. Be very afraid. That digit is cursed.

    Brandon Segal was -1 with 1 shot in 4:51.

    J.T. Wyman had 1 blocked shot in 12:12.

    11.

    SPR-2
    NOR-5

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 21 shots for his 26th victory of the season. He's now 1 back of his career high of 27 wins. He remains locked in mortal combat with Ben Bishop of Binghamton, who also has 26 wins.

    First Period
    NOR Ouellet, (12) (Kostka, Devos), 12:13 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Angelidis, (13) (Picard, Ouellet), 4:15
    NOR Ouellet, (13) (Panik, Johnson), 12:48 (PP)
    NOR Picard, (4) (Gudas, Jackson), 18:33

    Third Period
    SPR Calvert, (12) (Joudrey), 12:26
    SPR MacLeod, (6) (St. Pierre, Regner), 17:14 (PP)
    NOR Devos, (5) (Neilson, Barberio), 18:52 (PP)

    Michel Ouellet (pictured circa back-in-the-day), Alexandre Picard, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars.

    Mark Barberio hit 50 points for the season with a late power play assist. He holds a 9 point edge on Brian Connolly of Abbotsford for the league lead amongst blueliners. With 33 points, Mike Kostka lurks in a tie for 5th in points in that category.

    Jon Cooper just broke TheAHL.com. Evidently, they only show 10 game winning streaks on the website, as the standings are currently not properly registering the Admirals unbelievable 11 game streak. They've opened up an 8 point lead in the division on the idle Penguins and a 12 point lead on the idle Bears. Resetting their sights higher, they've also opened up a 6 point lead on St. John's for the conference's top spot, although St. John's has 5 games in hand. Nonetheless, they need to give Cooper the hardware.

    P.S. Panik attack, y'all!

    Norfolk finishes their week against Springfield tomorrow night. The normal warning about beating the same team on back-to-back nights when you paste them pretty good on the first night applies.

    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 29 GP, 19-7-1, 6 SO, 1.55 GAA, .939 sv%

    Ex-Lightning draft pick Matias Sointu had 1 goal and 1 assist in defeat in Ilves' 4-3 loss to JYP. Backup Joni Myllkoski got the call in net for JYP. Helenius will likely go tomorrow against Pelicans Lahti. 5 games remain in the SM-liiga regular season. JYP is tied for third in the league, 3 points behind Pelicans and 5 points back of KalPa.

    KHL Eastern Conference Quarterfinals (Russia):
    Defenseman Nikita Nesterov has been scratched in the first two games of Chelyabinsk's opening round series against Khanty-Manisysk. The polar bears are tied 1-1 in the series after a 3-1 win on Thursday and a 5-2 loss today.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Nikita Kucherov was still out of the lineup for CSKA Jr.'s 4-3 OT win over Kazan Jr. They play Kirov-Chepetsk on Tuesday.

    QMJHL

    Halifax Mooseheads 6 @ Gatineau Olympiques 2

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

    Gatineau remains in 14th place in the QMJHL overall standings, which are used to determine who makes the playoffs. The top 16 teams make the dance. The Olympiques have clinched a playoff berth, but aren’t expected to do much when they get there. They are 3-6-0-1 in their last 10 games.

    Jaroslav the Bear Slayer!

    HER-1
    NOR-2

    Jaroslav Janus stopped 26 of 27 for the victory, raising his season record against the Hershey Bears to 4-0-1. Janus also raised his season save percentage to .900 in the game, capping a stellar February where he was 4-1-0 with a 1.98 GAA and a .932 save percentage.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Conacher, (30) (Johnson, Barberio), 6:20 (PP)

    Third Period
    HER Kane, (15) (Eakin, Bourque), 12:56 (PP)
    NOR Palat, (5) (Johnson), 14:39

    Janus and Ondrej Palat were the game's first and second stars.

    Cory Conacher, who may get a Lightning contract as early as tomorrow, notched his 30th goal of his rookie campaign. He's 10 back of the Admirals record, stalking Troy Brouwer.

    Yet another 2 point game for Tyler Johnson. Ho hum.

    Your Cooper/Flanagan 2012 update: Coach Cooper ran the Admirals' franchise record winning streak to 10 games. Norfolk stretched their division lead to 6 points over the idle Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and they've buried the Bears 10 points back in third place now. They've also built a nice 4 point cushion on St. John's for tops in the Eastern Conference, although St. John's holds 4 games in hand. Friday and Saturday hold a 2 game set for the Admirals against the middling Springfield Falcons.
