    QMJHL

    Lewiston MAINEiacs 3 @ Montreal Juniors 5
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 9-26-35, +18, 22 PIM

    Montreal scored four times in the first period and cruised to a 5-3 win over Lewiston. Kirill Kabanov (Islanders) had a goal and an assist for Lewiston. The much-maligned former top prospect has eight goals and 19 points in 24 games this season.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 3 @ Kitchener Rangers 5
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (boarding, unsportsmanlike conduct)
    With Guelph: 20 GP, 10-12-22, -8, 32 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 47 GP, 24-29-53, -8, 65 PIM

    Guelph fought back from a 4-1 deficit to make it 4-3 with just over a minute to go, but Kitchener defenseman Ryan Murphy, a likely top-10 pick in this summer’s draft, scored his second of the game and 21st of the season into an empty net to seal the win for the Rangers.

    WHL

    Prince George Cougars 5 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 6
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-1-2, +3, 2 PIM (interference), *Second Star*
    Season totals: 40 GP, 29-20-49, -4, 20 PIM

    Prince George let 4-1 and 5-2 leads disappear as the Oil Kings scored four times in the third period to steal a win. Connolly’s 29th of the season opened the game’s scoring. He is within one goal and 11 points of his career highs, set as a 16 year old in 2008-2009.

    The Lightning completely lose their composure and disintegrate in the third period.

    BUF-7
    TB-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 7 goals on 28 shots for the loss. He completely lost his focus after getting slew footed on Buffalo's third goal. Whether or not that was goaltender interference, it's no excuse to let in the softies that came after that goal. No excuse at all.

    First Period
    06:36 TB Bergenheim (9), Lecavalier (17), Clark (14)
    16:43 BUF Stafford (18), Leopold (19)

    Second Period
    04:58 TB Lecavalier (10), Hedman (19)
    11:24 TB Bergenheim (10), Malone (23)
    18:10 BUF Vanek (20), Weber (5)

    Third Period
    04:26 BUF Leopold (11), Ennis (17)
    10:14 BUF Connolly (8), Ennis (18)
    11:01 BUF Vanek (21), McCormick (8)
    11:56 BUF Stafford (19), Morrisonn (3), Weber (6)
    13:27 BUF Stafford (20), Leopold (20), Vanek (26)(PP)
    16:19 TB Lecavalier (11), St Louis (45), Stamkos (33)(PP)

    Vincent Lecavalier was named the game's third star. If there's one silver lining from the catastrophe tonight, it's that Lecavalier now has 3 goals in the last couple of games. Unfortunately, Lecavalier getting untracked has coincided with Gagne going cold again. I suppose the other silver lining was Sean Bergenheim getting a couple of goals. It's always nice to see an energetic digger like Bergenheim get himself a couple of goals.

    The Lightning played a very immature game from the end of the second period on after pretty thoroughly dominating through much of the first 40 minutes. It was quite the fantastic meltdown, allowing a goal with less than 2 minutes in the second period to let Buffalo hang around and then the colossal overreaction on Buffalo's third goal. It was a 50/50 call, in my mind, whether that was goaltender interference, but even if the Sabres forward had pistol whipped Roloson deliberately, it was no excuse for how the Lightning reacted. Roloson completely lost his composure. Downie lost his mind and nearly shoved a linesman. Veterans and youth alike just completely acted the fool and lost their professionalism from that moment on, turning over the puck and failing to take care of their responsibilities. That's the worst the Lightning has reacted to adversity this season, and I'm absolutely puzzled as to why it happened. It's like the Lightning couldn't believe adversity had the audacity to happen to them. Gentlemen: adversity's going to try to kick the snot out of you come playoff time. You'd better learn to handle it better than you did tonight.

    It was a particularly costly loss in that not only do the Lightning stay just 3 points ahead of Washington (thank goodness San Jose beat them tonight) in the division but Matt Smaby and Ryan Malone were hurt in the loss. Steve Downie was also temporarily banged up and he's lucky he didn't get himself suspended for shoving the hand away of a linesman. Bad night. Really bad night.

    The Beanpot
    Semi-Finals

    Boston, Massachusetts

    Harvard Crimson 0 vs. Northeastern Huskies 4

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 7-9-16, +2, 28 PIM

    The Crimson were blanked in the semi-final game of the 59th Beanpot Tournament played between the four Boston area schools. Northeastern netminder Chris Rawlings recorded 41 saves for the shutout and move the Huskies into next Mondays final.

    Harvard has 10 Beanpot titles but none since 1993. The last time the Crimson played in the final was 2008 where they lost in a 6-5 thriller in overtime to eventual National Champion, Boston College.

    The Crimson will face the loser of tonight's Boston College vs. Boston University semi-final next Monday in the consolation game.

    OHL

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2 @ Kitchener Rangers 4
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

    Beukeboom (pictured) missed the game due to a possible concussion suffered when he took an elbow to the head in his last game. According to the Sault Star, Beukeboom was suffering from "concussion-like symptoms." If in fact it is diagnosed as a concussion, it would be his second concussion of the season and at least the third of his brief hockey career.

    Saginaw Spirit 4 @ Owen Sound Attack 5
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 44 GP, 1-19-20, +16, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup).
    With Attack: 9 GP, 6-1-0-0, 3.11 GAA, .897 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 16-4-1-1, 3.28 GAA, .885 sv%, 1 SO

    Schemitsch has points in consecutive games. His 20th point for the season came via a power play assist.

    You can now return to watching the Super/Puppy/Kitten/Lingerie Bowl of your choice, thanks to #4.

    STL-3
    TB-4 (OT)

    Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the victory. I thought the point shot goal he allowed to Nikitin was a little soft, but he stopped over 90% of the shots he faced and that's a good start for your backup to give you.

    First Period
    18:43 TB Stamkos (40), Clark (13), St Louis (43)

    Second Period
    00:30 STL Berglund (12), Steen (24), Oshie (10)
    02:33 TB Moore (9), Stamkos (30), Bergeron (1)
    11:05 STL Backes (17), Steen (25), D'Agostini (15)(PP)
    13:09 STL Nikitin (1), McClement (10)
    13:39 TB Downie (6), Stamkos (31), St Louis (44)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    04:53 TB Lecavalier (9), Bergeron (2), Stamkos (32)(PP)

    Steven Stamkos and Steve Downie were the game's first and second stars.

    Be afraid NHL, be very afraid. That goal horn with 6.7 seconds left in overtime may have been the sound of the floodgates opening for one Vincent Lecavalier. If #4 gets going, and Gagne keeps going, and Downie gets going too? Oh baby, the Lightning are going to be a difficult out in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

    Marc-Andre Bergeron paid immediate dividends with a pair of assists in his first game in a Lightning uniform, including the blast on the overtime winner that yielded the rebound that Lecavalier calmly potted to win the game.

    Meanwhile, quietly, Steven Stamkos scored his 40th goal of the season and had assists in triplicate. That's your league leader in goals and points, and he doesn't turn 21 until tomorrow. Happy Birthday #91. Remember, the important thing is not whether he's as good as Crosby or Ovechkin today, the important thing is that he's not even old enough to drink a beer until tomorrow. How good is this young man going to be in 2-1/2 years when he's the same age as Crosby is now? That's the point. The fact he's even in the conversation already, at 20 years old, is the remarkable thing. If he stays healthy, I'd be shocked if anyone can catch him for his second straight Richard Trophy, considering he holds an 8 goal advantage on a hurt Crosby. So, now the prize is the scoring title, where he holds a slimmer 3 point lead right now on Daniel Sedin.

    BCHL

    Penticton Vees 2 @ Vernon Vipers 3
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season totals: 52 GP, 22-42-64, 24 PIM

    The Vees fell to eight points behind the Vipers for first in the Interior Conference after losing 3-2 Saturday. Although the score was close, the shot count wasn’t – Vernon had 43 shots to just 15 for Penticton. The Vees are now tied with Salmon Arm for second place.

    USHL

    Omaha Lancers 3 @ Fargo Force 4 (SO)
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (interference), 2 SOG
    Season totals: 33 GP, 15-23-38, +17, 20 PIM

    Fargo exacted some revenge on Omaha for the Lancers beating the Force 2-1 Friday night. Mullin had an assist in that game – his first game back from injury – but did not find the scoresheet Saturday. Mullin did not convert his shootout attempt. Fargo won the shootout 1-0 in seven rounds.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Quebec Remparts 6
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 6-20-26, +8, 26 PIM

    Janosik (pictured) had his 20th assist of the season, which came on the power play. His career high for assists in a season is 26, set in 63 games last year.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 5
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 0-1-1, -2, 2 PIM (roughing)
    With Guelph: 19 GP, 10-12-22, -7, 28 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 46 GP, 24-29-53, -7, 61 PIM
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (checking from behind)
    Season totals: 43 GP, 1-18-19, +16, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup).
    With Attack: 9 GP, 6-1-0-0, 3.11 GAA, .897 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 16-4-1-1, 3.28 GAA, .885 sv%, 1 SO

    Schemitsch broke a three game scoreless streak with an assist on the Attack’s final goal. His career high for assists is 36, set last season in 62 games. He hasn’t had a goal since opening night, but has been solid defensively all season. Meanwhile Richard Panik extended his point streak to six games with a primary assist on Guelph’s only goal.

    WHL

    Tri-City Americans 2 @ Portland Winterhawks 7
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, -4, 2 PIM (tripping)
    With Tri-City: 11 GP, 6-11-17, +5, 24 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 22-22-44, -7, 68 PIM

    TC came into the game four points behind Portland for first in the U.S. Division and ended the game in third, one point behind Spokane. Ten minutes into the first period the Winterhawks were up 3-0 and they went on to put up 54 shots and post a snowman against the Americans. This game turned ugly as there were four fights in the last minute of the game, including one after the final horn. Ashton is minus-6 in his last three games.

    Kelowna Rockets 0 @ Prince George Cougars 3
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 28-19-47, -7, 18 PIM

    Prince George completed a two-game weekend sweep of Kelowna with a 3-0 victory Saturday. The Cougars entered the weekend nine points behind the Rockets for second in the B.C. Division. Connolly now has a three-game point streak.

    Lethbridge Hurricanes 0 @ Saskatoon Blades 5
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +1, 7 PIM (roughing, fighting vs. Neil Tarnasky)
    Season totals: 53 GP, 2-13-15, +18, 121 PIM

    Zahn fought Neil Tarnasky, who is the younger brother of former Lightning draft pick Nick Tarnasky. Zahn has seven fights in his last 10 games. He had four fights in his first 43 games. Brayden Schenn (Kings) had a Gordie Howe hat trick for the Blades.

    Greenville Road Warriors 4 @ Florida Everblades 3 (SO)
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out for 3 months - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 2-0-2, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 31 GP, 9-7-16, -8, 23 PIM

    Florida came into this all-important three game series with Greenville two points behind the Road Warriors for the division lead. After beating Greenville Wednesday, the Blades surrendered the final two games Friday and Saturday and with the point earned for a shootout loss Saturday, find themselves three points behind now. Former Barrie star Alex Hutchings had two goals for Florida, but it was his miss as Florida’s 12th shooter that enabled Greenville to get the extra point in the shootout. Hutchings had scored in the fourth round of the shootout, which tied the extra-extra session at one goal apiece. Greenville won the shootout 4-3 in 12 rounds. Florida had a 3-1 lead midway through the third period after Hutchings' goals, but Greenville scored 32 seconds later to make it 3-2, and tied it on the power play with five minutes remaining in regulation.

    Of Note: With Mike Smith being assigned to AHL Norfolk by Tampa Bay, speculation is Jaroslav Janus will return to the Everblades shortly. No announcement has been made as of Saturday night.

    Bowling Green Falcons 1 @ #16 Western Michigan Broncos 3
    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, Even, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 0-6-6, +13, 44 PIM

    The Broncos extended their unbeaten streak to 13 games and ran their record to 15-6-9 with a 3-1 win over Bowling Green. Next weekend Western faces a tough test to keep the streak alive with a trip to Oxford, Ohio, for two games with the #13 Miami Redhawks.

    St. Lawrence Saints 3 @ Cornell Big Red 4 (OT)
    F Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 1-5-6, +12, 22 PIM

    Cornell scored with 15 seconds left in regulation to force overtime before scoring 2:38 into the extra period to knock off St. Lawrence. The Big Red have now won three straight games and are unbeaten in their last six. Gotovets (pictured) is scoreless in 12, but is tied for the team lead with a plus-12 rating.

    Providence Friars 1 @ Vermont Catamounts 7
    F Matt Marshall, VRM: DNP
    Season totals: 23 GP, 2-0-2, -4, 4 PIM

    Vermont (6-15-5) won big over HEast opponent Providence. The win snapped a four game winless streak for the Catamounts. Next week they travel to #15 Maine for a weekend series with the Black Bears.

    More late third period horrors in Norfolk.

    BNG-3
    NOR-2

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 20 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    BNG Smith, (6) (Benoit, Locke), 18:53 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (15) (Harju), 12:35

    Third Period
    BNG Smith, (7) (Greening, Locke), 1:01
    NOR Labrie, (5) (Angelidis, Berry), 1:55
    BNG Wick, (9) (O'Brien, Schira), 19:47

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

    For the second game in a row, Norfolk gives up a late third period goal to the Senators. Last night it allowed Binghamton to steal a point before falling in overtime. Tonight, it took at least a point away from the Admirals in the form of a regulation loss. Norfolk's a rather pitiful 3-5-1-1 in their last 10 games and are fading in the chase for second place in the division. That's bad news, because they now look destined to have to face either Wilkes-Barre/Scranton or Hershey with the Pens and Bears holding home ice, which looks to be a recipe for a quick playoff exit. With 29 games left to go in the regular season, it's time for the Admirals to start to get serious.

    For his part, Blair Jones extended his scoring streak to 5 games, while Johan Harju extended his to 4.

    Marc-Andre Bergeron did not play tonight as he has been recalled by the Lightning with ex-Admiral Mike Lundin ailing from a groin injury. In his place, the Lightning have gone ahead and completed the assignment of netminder Mike Smith to the Admirals.

    Box score from TheAHL.com.

    AIK 3 @ Sodertalje 2
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 17 GP, 4-10-0, 0 SO, 2.89 GAA, .890 sv%

    Oscar Steen of AIK scored a power play goal 27 seconds into the third period to lift AIK to a 3-2 win over Sodertalje in a key late season Elitserien matchup. Ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll had a goal in the match for Sodertalje, which was his team leading 19th of the season, which is tied for 4th best in the league.

    Sodertalje still holds a slim 1 point lead over Timra for 8th on the Elitserien table. But, with regulation wins counting as 3 points in Sweden, the truth is that the race for the final playoff spot and for avoiding the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation tournament is a near dead heat between 5 teams heading into the final 8 games of the regular season. Sodertalje sits in 8th at 63 points, Timra in 9th with 62, MODO in 10th with 61, and AIK and Frolunda are just one regulation win back at 60 points and occupying 11th and 12th, respectively. Unfortunately for Sodertalje, they have the second worst goal differential in the league (-25), so the tiebreak scenarios are not favorable to their cause.

    The Elitserien is off until 2/17/11 for the LG Hockey Games.
