    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.

    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.

    Elsewhere, the East's top seed, St. Petersburg, clubbed CSKA in Game One of their opening round series. Nikita Kucherov did not play for CSKA. Kucherov also did not appear in CSKA Jr.'s 3-0 win over Novgorod Jr.

    Opportunistic Lightning beat Habs, flu virus.

    MTL-1
    TB-2

    Mathieu Garon was stellar in stopping 23 of 24 for the victory.

    First Period
    TB Stamkos (44), (Purcell, St. Louis), 8:42
    MTL Desharnais (13), (unassisted), 16:02

    Second Period
    TB Hall (2), (Malone, Wyman), 0:28

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Garon, Adam Hall, and Eric Brewer were the game's three stars.

    Granted, Montreal's abysmal right now, but with all the new pieces and the wholesale call-ups because half the team had the flu, this game could've very easily gotten out of hand the other way. Games are played on ice, not on paper, though, and the Lightning continue to tease us enough to hold our interest. The team moved to within 5 points of 8th place, which is now held by Washington as the Caps hopped Winnipeg with a win tonight. There's still a lot of head-to-head games against teams directly in front of the Lightning. Hope springs.

    Trevor Smith had 1 blocked shot in 14:41.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 2 blocked shots in 16:19.

    Evan Oberg had 3 shots and 1 hit in 16:44.

    Mike Angelidis had 1 shot in 5:19.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had a fight and 2 hits in 4:37.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 5 @ Assat 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 29/30, 1.00 GAA, .967 sv%
    Season totals: 29 GP, 19-7-1, 6 SO, 1.55 GAA, .939 sv%

    Riku Helenius stopped 29 shots and was second star of the match in JYP's 5-1 throttling of Assat. Former Lightning forward Eric Perrin was first star in the contest with 2 goals and 1 assist. We're heading down the stretch run of the SM-liiga season now, too, with just 7 contests left in the regular season for JYP. They'll face Ilves next on Friday. They're currently tied for 3rd in the SM-liiga with 94 points, 4 back of KalPa for tops in the league. Helenius leads the SM-liiga in GAA, save percentage, and is still tied for tops in shutouts.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Timra 2 @ Lulea 7
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 50 GP, 14-9-23, +9, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju assisted on a pair of even strength goals as Lulea put up a touchdown in a 7-2 clubbering of Timra. Ex-Panthers draft pick Toni Koivisto and Blues draft pick Simon Hjalmarsson each had 2 goals for Lulea in the win. With 3 games to go in the regular season, Lulea sits atop the Elitserien table with a 5 point edge on second place Skelleftea. They draw AIK on Thursday.
