    For the first time since 2005, Florida is heading to the Kelly Cup Finals. Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche (pictured), acquired from Detroit in the Kyle Quincey trade, was named first star on Saturday as Florida defeated Kalamazoo 3-1 to clinch the series, 4-1. Pat Nagle, who shut out the K-Wings in Game 1 before losing Game 2, watched from the bench as Carolina prospect John Muse stopped 27 of 28 shots for his third straight win. The ‘Blades will play the Las Vegas Wranglers in the finals, starting Monday, May 14. Both teams are seeking their first Kelly Cup title. The Everblades are making their third appearance in the Kelly Cup Finals (2004 and 2005), while the Wranglers have advanced to the finals for the second time (2008). The Wranglers used to be affiliated with Calgary, then Phoenix, but currently do not have an NHL or AHL affiliate. Their director of scouting is someone Lightning fans will remember from the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals, Keith Primeau. (Photo courtesy of swamphockey.com.

    Fall down 8 times, get up 9.

    CT-1
    NOR-4

    Series Tied at 1-1

    Dustin Tokarski rebounded from his overtime softie in Game One by stopping 27 of 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    NOR Killorn, (2) (Labrie, Aulie), 3:00
    NOR Kostka, (1) (Picard), 17:44

    Second Period
    CT Deveaux, (1) (Hrivik, Tessier), 9:02 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (1) (Smith, Kostka), 15:45 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Conacher, (1) (Johnson, Barberio), 4:41 (PP)

    Tokarski, Tyler Johnson, and Mike Kostka were the game's three stars. Johnson, the AHL's hottest player down the stretch of the regular season, had the first playoff goal and assist of his professional career.

    Connecticut surrendered a staggering 11 power plays to the Admirals, 2 of which were converted by Norfolk. The Whale made a huge tactical error trying to bully the Admirals out of the building, and they paid for it on the scoreboard.

    Game Three is Sunday in Hartford. In the other Eastern Conference Semifinal series, St. John's and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are also tied 1 game each and will play back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday.

    What a truly disappointing way to end a game.

    CT-3
    NOR-2 (OT)

    Connecticut Leads the Series 1-0

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals he'd like back on 29 shots including an overtime winner that he'll have nightmares about. It was a truly innocuous long shot that Tokarski got a lot of but popped straight up in the air and went in behind him. Thud. He made some big saves in the Second and Third Period, but the goals he did allow will leave a sick feeling in the Admirals' stomachs.

    First Period
    NOR Palat, (1) (Segal, Smith), 5:43
    CT Audy-Marchessault, (2) (Erixon), 8:18
    CT Hrivik, (5) (Wellman, Miller), 8:30
    NOR Labrie, (2) (Barberio, Killorn), 16:56

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    CT Thuresson, (1) (Owens, Bell), 2:53

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie was the game's second star.

    Tyler Johnson returned to the lineup from injury.

    Now Norfolk knows what they're up against, and this is admittedly a different team than they faced in the regular season. With guys like J.T. Miller and Marek Hrivik in the lineup, this is a younger and quicker Connecticut team. I think Norfolk was taken a little off guard early tonight and never really turned on the jets the way they typically do. It's a critical Game Two coming up Friday night.
