    Third Period
    13:34 TB Roberts (3), (Eminger, Stamkos)

    Roberts, who got played like a fiddle by Matt Cooke to help cost his team a point in the standings against the Pens, tipped in an Eminger point shot for the game winning goal tonight. I sense mayhem on the message boards.

    Steve Downie was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 9:37. He limped off after getting hit with a puck, so we'll have to see if he's ready to go next time out.

    Matt Smaby got himself a 5 for fighting early in the game and also had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 19:22. Tonight was a really good night for Smaby. He got an opportunity to show the coaching staff what he can do with more ice time, and he was solid. He was even surprisingly good at pinching in and keeping plays alive at the blueline in the offensive zone. I've been extremely impressed since he came back from his injury. It looks to me like he may very well stick this time.

    David Koci played 1:31 in the game.

    When this season is over, the Ads are going to look back at games like this where they had leads in the third period and left points on the table... and kick themselves.

    Wow. Atta boy, Riku!

    BRI-0
    NOR-3

    Riku Helenius pitches a 41 save shutout in his first career AHL start. A star is born?

    Third Period
    NOR Bochenski, (18) (Smolenak, Lundin), 4:43
    NOR Segal, (13) (Smolenak, Gratton), 15:38

    Wow. This is where Karri Ramo needs to start feeling the heat coming up his back. Everyone's known for the past 2-1/2 years that Helenius is athletically capable, and the bizarre reshuffling and suspension situation has given Helenius an opportunity to finally get in between the pipes. And, damn-it-all if he hasn't seized the opportunity by the throat in his first start. Wow.

    Wow!

    Don't look now, but Vladimir Mihalik just got back to even for the season with a +3 night tonight. His play has picked up since the embarassment of the San Jose Sharks game.

    Amazing. Truly a game that Pittsburgh had no business winning.

    TB-3
    PIT-4 (OT)

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the overtime loss in his first NHL start. He can thank a lazy referee for one of those goals.

    First Period
    15:25 TB Malone (16), (Recchi, Ranger)

    Second Period
    05:00 TB St. Louis (19), (Lecavalier, Eminger)

    Third Period
    02:25 PIT Malkin (23), (Dupuis)
    14:06 PIT Eaton (2), (Sykora)
    16:31 PIT Sykora (20), (Malkin, Crosby)(PP)

    Overtime
    04:44 PIT Malkin (24), (Staal, Orpik)

    It's the kind of stuff that makes you want to vomit. The Lightning completely controlled this game, and the drip, drip, drip. Paul Ranger with a turnover led to Pittsburgh's first goal. Then Gord Dwyer refuses to try to move on a harmless play around the boards that ends up eventually in the back of the net on a shot by Mark Eaton that bounces off Eminger's shin pad and in. Then Gary Roberts takes an absolutely idiotic penalty flexing his pimp hand on Matt Cooke. Tying goal goes in. Pittsburgh wins it late on a goalmouth scramble. Vomit. So much good effort in this game wasted by bad luck and stupidity by veteran players. Seriously, Gary Roberts got played by Cooke like a violin. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

    Steve Downie was -1 in 9:15 with 1 shot and 4 hits.

    Matt Smaby was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot.

    Done.

    TB-1
    NYI-3

    Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 16 shots for the loss before being pulled for Mike McKenna, who made his NHL debut and stopped all 11 shots he faced the rest of the way.

    Second Period
    06:27 NYI Hunter (13), (Nielsen, Okposo)(PP)
    08:29 NYI Streit (9), (Weight, Comrie)
    09:52 NYI Martinek (1), (Park, Witt)

    Third Period

    I think you now readjust your goals for the season to trying to finish with a winning record, but playoffs is likely out of the question. There will be a lot of folks trying to lay tonight's loss at the feet of Karri Ramo, and he did allow two soft goals, but the Lightning only scored 1 goal on an AHL caliber club with Yann Danis in net. That's absolutely unacceptable.

    Steve Downie had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 7:44. He doesn't play enough, in my opinion.

    Matt Smaby had 4 shots and 2 blocked shots in 10:38. He, also, probably doesn't play enough minutes. He absolutely destroyed Blake Comeau and drew a penalty in the process behind the net in the first period tonight.

    Beanpot
    Harvard Crimson 3 vs. #1 Boston University Terriers 4
    F Alex Killorn Har: 1-0-1, 6 SOG, E
    Season totals: 21GP, 4-7-11, 38PIM

    In the 57th Annual Beanpot in Boston, Mass. last night, Harvard (5-12-4) gave the No. 1 team in the country all they could handle coming just seconds away from forcing overtime. Freshman Killorn (pictured right) put the Crimson up by two early in the second period with his forth goal of the season and fed a late pass to junior Alex Biega whose one-timer beat BU goalie Kieran Millan only just after the buzzer sounded.

    The Crimson take on #11 Boston College in the consolation game next Monday. BC lost 6-1 to #3 Northeastern.

    OHL
    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 5
    W Kyle DeCoste, SSM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 10-9-19, -21, 59 PIM
    With SSM: 9 GP, 2-3-5, -8, 8 PIM

    The Greyhounds cut a 3-0 deficit to 3-2 and a 4-2 deficit to 4-3 but gave up a late empty net goal in their game at first place Windsor. The Spitfires lead the OHL with 89 points, 13 more than John Tavares’ London Knights. Windsor has already clinched a playoff spot. The loss was the Soo’s eighth in a row.
