    I'd like to thank Mike Smith for still being Mike Smith.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the rare win.

    First Period
    TB Stamkos (32), (St. Louis, Moore), 12:02
    TB Purcell (12), (Downie, Kubina), 15:39

    Second Period
    TB St. Louis (11), (Smith, Labrie), 6:15
    PHO Korpikoski (11), (Gordon)(SH), 8:29
    TB Downie (8), (Lecavalier), 16:39

    Third Period
    PHO Yandle (6), (Korpikoski, Whitney), 3:25
    PHO Whitney (15), (Ekman-Larsson, Doan)(PP), 16:01

    Steve Downie and Martin St. Louis were the game's second and third star.

    The Lightning didn't have nearly the jump they had last night against Dallas, but they didn't require quite the same effort against Mike Smith, who allowed 4 goals on just 21 shots, including the gift to Steve Downie that ended up being the winner.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 7:18.

    Trevor Smith had a beautiful assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 8:25. His saucer pass to Martin St. Louis to spring him on his breakaway goal was a breathtaking little display of skill. Nice.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had his first NHL point on an assist and he was +1 with 3 shots in 6:30. You get the feeling he's quickly becoming sort of the unofficial team mascot. It's hard not to root for the guy.

    When Slovakians attack...

    CT-4 (SO)

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 26 shots and stopped 9 of 10 in the penalty shot session for the win. He came into the game in relief of Dustin Tokarski who unceremoniously allowed all 3 shots he faced into the net before getting the hook.

    First Period
    NOR Johnson, (14) (Ashton, Conacher), 0:39
    CT Deveaux, (12) (Newbury, Christensen), 1:26 (PP)
    CT Tanski, (3) (Tessier), 3:49
    CT Bourque, (3) (Tessier, Parlett), 6:33

    Second Period
    NOR Palat, (3) , 3:58

    Third Period
    NOR Ashton, (16) (Panik, Jackson), 6:10
    NOR Conacher, (24) (Kostka), 6:28 (PP)
    CT Tanski, (4) (Grant, Owens), 8:13

    Richard Panik was the first star of the game. He assisted Carter Ashton on the goal to tie the game at 3-3, got cheap shotted by Aaron Voros shortly thereafter, but got his revenge with the tenth round shootout winner. I'm rather shocked Janus didn't get a star, but both he and his countryman Panik were very worthy tonight. In his last 10 games, the AHL is feeling the Panik attack to the tune of 5 goals and 9 points.

    For those wondering, although not 100%, Mark Barberio did dress and play tonight. I'm not the official BP Tweetmeister, but if I were: #goodnewsforachange

    Norfolk's trip to the pay window moves them to within 2 points of Hershey in the division with the Bears holding a game in hand. Norfolk draws Charlotte at Scope on Tuesday night. The Checkers have been one of the best teams in the Western Conference (don't ask) this season, so Norfolk will have their work cut out for them.

    HIFK held off a furious rally that included 2 goals in the final 4 minutes of regulation to edge JYP 4-3. HIFK's game winner came off the stick of former Lightning draft pick Eero Somervuori while former Lightning forward Eric Perrin contributed a helper for JYP.

    Just weeks separated from his U20 WJC Gold Medal triumph with Team Sweden, netminder Johan Gustafsson made 29 stops to help Lulea blank AIK 3-0. Gustafsson was a 6th round draft pick of the Wild in the 2010 draft. Johan Harju took a minor for hooking in the match. Lulea gets Linkopings on Wednesday.

Defensemen Kevin Quick and Charles Landry, recently assigned to Florida from Norfolk, were recalled to the Admirals earlier this week.

    Streaking Lightning extinguish Stars. (Cliche headlines are fun.)


    Mathieu Garon allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. He shook off a little collision in the middle of the game to handle his business.

    First Period
    TB Purcell (10), (St. Louis, Gervais), 18:48

    Second Period

    Third Period
    DAL Wandell (3), (Eriksson), 1:22
    TB Purcell (11), (St. Louis, Lecavalier), 3:36

    Teddy Purcell and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    Karri Lehtonen saved the Stars from getting blown out early. The Lightning played one of their best periods of the season in the first, and their puck movement on the power play, in particular, was dazzling. They deserved to have a bigger lead going into the third and it was a relief that they held onto their 1 goal margin.

    Brett Connolly had 4 penalty minutes in 6:28 and they were kind of lazy penalties. Bad rookie. Bad.

    Trevor Smith had 2 hits in 4:41. Norfolk would like to clone him and send one of the two back to them right now.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 4 hits and a fight in 6:01. For those of you who were making a point to exalt Blair Jones' physical play even though he was averaging 1 hit a night: this is the kind of a stat line a 4th line lumberjack needs to put up. Keep chopping wood, Pierre-Cedric. He showed some nice technique on the short punches in close quarters at the start of the brawl with Nystrom.

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 6 goals on 23 shots for the loss before being pulled for Dustin Tokarski for the third period. Tic stopped all 3 shots he faced the rest of the way in light work.

    First Period
    SYR Maroon, (17) (Sexton, Carle), 1:21
    SYR Macenauer, (3) (Smaby, Maroon), 12:08
    SYR Maroon, (18) (Carle, Sexton), 16:20

    Second Period
    SYR Sexton, (6) (McMillan), 3:48
    SYR Macenauer, (4) (Bodie), 8:46
    SYR Maroon, (19) (Carle, Rodney), 15:41 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Angelidis, (9) (Fornataro), 4:25
    NOR Angelidis, (10) (Ouellet, Fornataro), 4:51
    NOR Panik, (9) (Devos, Palat), 19:54

    It was a tough spot for the Admirals, having to make due with so few forwards and moving defensemen to play out of position. It got worse when they lost Mark Barberio tonight to an injury. Kudos to them for sticking to it in the third and making it a bit more respectable. At least there was a Panik attack.

    Norfolk heads to Hartford tomorrow to play the Whale.
