    The legend continues to grow...

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 6 @ Tappara 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 15/15, SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 13 GP, 8-5-0, 6 SO, 1.31 GAA, .940 sv%

    Today was the 3rd or 4th time this season I've gone to look at the results from Finland and said to myself, "No bleeping way!" Riku Helenius (pictured) continues to bend the rules of time and space, as he shut out Tappara today on 15 saves in JYP's 6-0 win. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had 1 goal and 3 points in the win. JYP plays SaiPa on Saturday.

    I get that JYP is a very good defensive team. I get that Riku is benefiting greatly from playing behind a very good defensive team. But, with 6 shutouts in 13 starts, and considering his tandem-mate Joni Myllykoski doesn't have any shutouts in 15 appearances, it's become something you can't dismiss anymore. At this stage, it's reminiscent of how people used to dismiss Martin Brodeur because he played behind a very strong defensive team in New Jersey. And, yet, it's not like you could have plugged any goaltender in there for New Jersey and won championships, and the guy now holds or is close to holding just about every goaltending record in the book.

    No, I'm not saying Riku Helenius, who at this time last year was getting routinely clobbered as a backup for Sodertalje in the Elitserien after being excommunicated from North America by the Lightning, is another Martin Brodeur. But, then again, doesn't it seem like he might be justifying the belief that the Lightning had when they drafted him 15th overall in 2006 that there might be something special about him?

    And, aren't you a little curious what he could do if the Lightning got him back to North America, too?

    Gwinnett Gladiators 6 @ Florida Everblades 3

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    RW Philip-Michael Devos, FLA: 0-0-0, -3, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 4-10-14, -4, 8 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Loss, 21 saves on 25 shots
    Season Totals: 11 GP, 5-5-0, 3.16 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO

    Nagle’s string of strong games came to an end as he gave up five in a 6-3 home loss to Gwinnett on Wednesday. He finished November 3-3 with a 2.32 GAA and .921 save percentage though he started the month with two big losses. Alex Hutchings remains out with an undisclosed injury. With Greenville winning on Wednesday Florida fell into a last-place tie with the Road Warriors in the South Division. Florida’s record stands at 9-9-1-1.

    The devil is in the details.

    TB-2
    DET-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss. He made some key saves early to keep the Lightning in it, but the 4th goal was a back breaker that he should have made a better effort on.

    First Period
    DET Datsyuk (7), (Bertuzzi, Franzen), 4:58
    DET Ericsson (1), (Filppula), 11:04

    Second Period
    TB St. Louis (7), (Purcell, Bergeron)(PP), 9:35
    TB Stamkos (16), (Gilroy, Lecavalier), 19:46

    Third Period
    DET Holmstrom (4), (Lidstrom, Datsyuk)(PP), 4:22
    DET Helm (3), (Kindl, Ericsson), 13:14

    Martin St. Louis was the game's second star.

    What tonight proved is that from a skill and athleticism standpoint, the Lightning can absolutely hang with the Detroit Red Wings. That bodes well for down the road. But, what it also proved is they're just a better team, detail-wise, than the Lightning, and that's why they got the 2 points. That's what these past two games proved to me. Tonight it was faceoffs. Monday night it was making some untimely mistakes. It's details, and it's a shame, because those were two pretty good efforts from the Lightning and they obviously didn't get the results. But, I'm sure Guy Boucher will emphasize that it's a process and they'll work on shoring up those areas.

    Brett Connoly had 1 shot and 4 hits in 9:30. Coach Boucher's not stupid. He's not throwing a rookie out against the Wings for big minutes to let the young man get eaten alive.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 1 @ Chelyabinsk 4
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 5 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 6-9-15, +12, 20 PIM

    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 22/25, 3.10 GAA, .880 sv%
    Season totals: 19 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Give it another month, and Nikita Nesterov might lead the whole league in +/-. The young blueliner was +3 with a minor for interference in Chelyabinsk's 4-1 smackdown of Vasily Koshechkin and Cherepovets. The blueliner's +9 KHL mark is quickly catching up to his solid +12 mark so far this year in junior play in the MHL. Cherepovets draws Dynamo Minsk on Sunday. Chelyabinsk gets Ekaterinburg on Tuesday.

    Elsewhere, Nikita Kucherov did not appear for CSKA in their 3-2 shootout loss to Novgorod. However, his junior linemate Nikita Gusev was called up for the game. No word yet on a potential injury/illness.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Rimouski Oceanic 6

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 2-15-17, +3, 21 PIM

    Alexander Mallet (undrafted) had two goals and two assists Tuesday as the Oceanic scored a home win over Janosik and Gatineau.

    St. John Sea Dogs 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 1 (OT)

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 0-4-4, -4, 23 PIM

    The defending Memorial Cup champs got an overtime goal from defenseman Charles-Olivier Roussel (Predators 2009 2nd round), assisted by 2011 picks Zack Phillips (Wild, 1st round) and Tomas Jurco (Red Wings, 2nd round) to defeat the Wilcats 2-1. Lightning prospect Daniel Milan extended his scoreless streak to five games in the loss. Phillips was thought to be a potential draft candidate for the Lightning last summer. The Wild took him with the pick immediately after the Bolts took Vladislav Namestnikov. Phillips leads St. John in scoring with 16 goals and 48 points in 27 games.

    Number one, with a bullet.

    WBS-2
    NOR-5

    Dustin Tokarski had 16 saves on 18 shots for the win.

    First Period
    WBS Dimitrakos, (6) (Petersen, Craig), 15:36 (PP)
    NOR Angelidis, (5) (Barberio, Vernace), 18:39

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (2) (Smith, Barberio), 10:31
    WBS Street, (6) (Petersen, Wild), 10:53
    NOR Conacher, (11) (Johnson, Jones), 13:56 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Conacher, (12) (Jones, Smith), 8:25 (PP)
    NOR Smith, (10) , 19:16 (EN)

    Cory Conacher (pictured), Blair Jones, and Trevor Smith were the game's three stars.

    Norfolk outshot Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 31-18 in the game. Bear in mind, this is a team the Admirals are tied with that they are supposed to be battling tooth and nail for first in the division, and they absolutely blew them off the rink in the second half of the game tonight.

    Conacher and Smith are now tied for 4th in the league in scoring at 25 points, 5 points back of perennial AHL world beater Keith Aucoin. Carter Ashton sits tied for 19th in scoring despite a season long 5 game scoreless streak. Conacher and Ashton also are tied for 2nd in the league in goals, as well. Smith is 2nd in +/- at +14, behind Cade Fairchild of Peoria at +16.

    Mark Barberio is now 2nd in the league in scoring amongst defensemen, 2 points back of Rockford's Brian Connelly. He's 1 plus behind Smith, tied for 3rd in the league at +13 with, among others, Real Canadian Hero Pierre-Cedric Labrie.

    Next up: Adirondack on Friday at Scope.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    KalPa 2 @ JYP 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 12 GP, 7-5-0, 5 SO, 1.42 GAA, .937

    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but if you had a goaltender who has had a shutout in 42% of his starts through 12 starts, wouldn't you put him in net more? In any event, Riku Helenius sat backup today to Joni Mullykoski in JYP's 2-1 loss to KalPa. JYP draws Tappara on Friday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    CSKA Jr. 3 @ Togliatti Jr. 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., DNP
    Season totals (MHL): 14 GP, 13-15-28, +8, 28 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Where in the world is Nikita Kucherov? The talented forward has yet to appear since the end of the Subway Super Series in Canada. He was not in the lineup again today as CSKA Jr. beat Togliatti Jr. 3-2. Kucherov's linemate for both CSKA Jr. and the Super Series had 1-1-2 in the win. CSKA's big club plays tomorrow. Will Kucherov surface there?

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Timra 2 @ Lulea 1 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 25 GP, 9-4-13, +4, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju was scoreless and failed on his shootout attempt in Lulea's 2-1 loss to Timra. That is a bad loss for Lulea to the last place team on the Elitserien table. They'll try to rebound on Thursday against Skelleftea.
