    Pretty ugly first 40 minutes.

    MTL-4
    TB-2

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 23 shots tonight. He was as off as most of the rest of the team tonight.

    First Period
    05:27 MTL Gill (2), Gionta (12), Plekanec (30)
    08:41 MTL Desharnais (8), Kostitsyn (21)(PP)

    Second Period
    01:25 TB Moore (12), Kubina (19), Purcell (26)(PP)
    14:05 MTL Pacioretty (13), Plekanec (31), Subban (22)(PP)

    Third Period
    01:18 MTL Pacioretty (14), Gomez (25)
    14:07 TB Lecavalier (16), Moore (12), Purcell (27)

    Dominic Moore was outstanding. Sean Bergenheim was outstanding. Most of the rest you could load in a cannon and shoot to the moon for the way they played for the first 2 periods tonight. The silver lining was a well played third period where they outshot Montreal 15-5, but it shouldn't take falling behind 3 goals to find an extra gear.

    Marc-Andre Bergeron needs to sit. Someone needs to pay for how this PP is playing right now.

    Mattias Ritola was -1 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 12:23. He's come back from Norfolk with a lot more tenacity in the physical game. I hope he keeps it up. With injuries, the more depth the Lightning have in the playoffs the better.

    Norfolk comes within an eyelash, just to see their hopes dashed.

    NOR-2
    HER-3

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Willsie, (24) , 4:26 (SH)
    HER Willsie, (25) (Aucoin, Greentree), 16:39

    Second Period
    NOR Fornataro, (16) (Labrie, Gudas), 4:24
    NOR Milam, (12) (Labrie, Pouliot), 19:46

    Third Period
    HER Perreault, (9) (Willsie, Souray), 17:08

    The good news is that Charlotte lost 2-0 to Worcester tonight, so the Admirals lost no ground on 3rd place. 2nd Hershey did pull 7 points ahead of Norfolk, though. Norfolk finishes their weekend tomorrow night in Binghamton, where the Senators were idle tonight.

    There are 18 games remaining in the regular season.

    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%

    From the final day of the Elitserien regular season:

    Needing a regulation win to avoid the relegation round and tied with HV 71 at 1-1, Sodertalje pulled Pontus Sjogren for the extra attacker with 1:18 left in regulation allowing Johan Davidson to score the game winning goal with 7 seconds left into an empty net. Sodertalje and MODO will go into the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation round. MODO fell 3-2 to AIK, which clinched the final spot in the Elitserien playoffs.

    Season totals: 40 GP, 18-29-47, +25, 24 PIM

    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 53 GP, 27-31-58, -8, 87 PIM

    Season totals: 52 GP, 40-23-63, -3, 26 PIM

    Connolly scored his 40th goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough as the Chiefs held on for a 5-4 win in Prince George. Connolly, who has three goals in his last two games, is tied for fifth in the league in goals despite playing 10-11 fewer games than those above him. Spokane’s Tyler Johnson (undrafted) leads with 47. Johnson had a goal Friday against the Cougars.

    South Carolina Stingrays 3 @ Florida Everblades1
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out until at least April - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM

    Season totals: 39 GP, 10-12-22, -10, 31 PIM

    Hutchings’ four-game point streak came to an end when the Blades lost their third straight game to the Stingrays, 3-1. Hutchings took a slashing penalty with under two minutes to go and Florida down 2-1 at the time. Bobby Geopfert was back in goal for Florida after being out for a few weeks due to injury. Geopfert, who is well worth a follow on Twitter @Geffman47, stopped 31 of 33 shots in his return for Third Star. With the win, the Stingrays upped their lead for second place in the South Division to six points over the Everblades.

    I've already forgotten Curtis McElhinney.

    NOR-1
    ALB-0

    Dustin Tokarski stopped all 29 shots he faced to post his second shutout of the season. He is 5-0-2 in his last 7 games, and he's now raised his season statistics to a 2.44 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Curtis McElhinney being claimed by the Sens on waivers may have been a huge blessing in disguise for the Lightning and Admirals alike. Tic seems to play better with a large volume of starts, and he's starting to flash the outstanding form of his rookie year that elevated him into the strata of one of the Lightning organization's best prospects.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Durno, (16) (Harju, Vernace), 18:25

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Tokarski and Chris Durno were the game's first and third stars.

    Elsewhere in the East Division tonight, the Charlotte Checkers have gone down to defeat 4-2 in Providence. Norfolk still sits in 4th in the East Division. They cashed in a game in hand and have opened a 4 point lead on 5th place Binghamton. They've also temporarily opened up a 9 point lead on the Atlantic Division's 4th place team, Worcester, with the Sharks currently going to overtime against Manchester, so the lead will be 8 or 9 points by the end of the night.

    More importantly, though, the Admirals are starting to track down the teams in front of them. They are now 1 point behind 3rd place Charlotte with 2 games in hand on the Checkers. Also, intriguingly, Norfolk has moved to within 5 points of idle Hershey with 1 game in hand on the Bears. Norfolk travels into Hershey tomorrow night with the chance to cut the Bears lead down to 3 points with 1 game in hand. Norfolk will finish their weekend on Sunday in Binghamton.

    19 games remain in the regular season.

    Much more entertaining than last night... but the same result.

    TB-1
    BOS-2

    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the loss. It's a shame. He played well in his first start since being recalled.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    04:04 TB Brewer (9), B. Jones (2), Downie (20)
    06:06 BOS Kampfer (5), Kelly (13), Peverley (21)

    Third Period
    16:18 BOS Lucic (28), Krejci (39), Horton (24)

    It's a disappointing result because the Lightning had so much stacked against them with Smith in net and Lecavalier out hurt and they still performed so well. But's it's a disappointing result with a silver lining for the resiliency the club showed. I feel like I learned something valuable about the team's character tonight, and I really liked what I saw.

    Mattias Ritola had 2 shots and 1 hit in 11:19. Holy cow, what did they sprinkle on Ritola's cereal this morning? He threw a colossal hit and actually did some board work tonight. Nice.

    Blair Jones had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 9:33. He skated well and he played hard. He also got popped pretty hard a couple of times, but he looked good. I really believe this guy would be an NHLer if the Lightning weren't so deep at forward right now. He really has the makeup of a pretty good fourth line soldier.

    Elitserien Regular Season
    Sodertalje 5 @ Timra 3
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%

    Ex-Avs pick Linus Videll had 1 goal and 3 assists to lead Sodertalje to a critical 5-3 win over Timra. With 1 game remaining in the regular season, Sodertalje now sits in 9th in the Elitserien, just 2 points back of AIK for the last playoff spot in the league. On the flip side, they hold a scant 1 point lead over MODO and Timra, who would be ticketed for the promotion/relegation round if the season ended now. 8th place AIK finishes their season against 11th place MODO, 10th place Frolunda draws 4th place Lulea, and 12th place Timra finishes against 6th place Djurgardens, so Sodertalje has the hardest draw of the final round of games on Saturday with 2nd place HV 71.

    For Sodertalje to make the playoffs, AIK must lose in regulation to MODO, Sodertalje must defeat HV 71 in regulation, and Sodertalje's goal differential must be equal to or better than Frolunda's in the final game. Also, only a regulation win guarantees Sodertalje will not have to face the promotion/relegation round. They will lose any tiebreaker with MODO or Timra on goal differential.

    KHL Western Conference Quarterfinals
    (7)Dynamo Riga 2 @ (2)Dynamo Moscow 1 (OT)
    Dynamo Riga Wins the Series 4-2
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 17-15-32, -3, 46 PIM
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 0-2-2, +1, 6 PIM

    Janis Sprukts scored 15:01 into overtime to lead Dynamo Riga to a 2-1 Game Six victory over Dynamo Moscow and an upset 4-2 series win. Riga moves on and will play either Yaroslavl or Mytischi in the second round.

    (5)Cherepovets 0 @ (4)Mytischi 1
    Mytischi Wins the Series 4-2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 38/39, 1.00 GAA, .974 sv%
    Season totals: 32 GP, 18-14-0, 2 SO, 2.92 GAA, .906 sv%
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 2-3-1, 0 SO, 2.20 GAA, .946 sv%

    Vasya the Cat deserved better. The big netminder stopped 38 of 39 shots he faced, but a goal by ex-Jackets draft pick Sergei Mozyakin was all Mytischi needed to take down Cherepovets 1-0 in Game Six and secure a 4-2 series win. Koshechkin performed brilliantly despite facing an average of 37 shots per game in the series. His KHL contract expires this offseason and the rules of the CBA may be conducive to the Lightning signing the former 2002 8th rounder, but for now Koshechkin's next focus may be a potential World Championships spot with Team Russia.
