Florida now leads the best-of-7 series, 2-1. Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche earned the primary assist on Justin Shugg’s game-tying goal with under four minutes left in regulation. Charles Landry and Kevin Quick were healthy scratches for the second straight game. Pat Nagle sat backup to John Muse, who stopped 32 of 35 shots. Game 4 is not until Tuesday night in southwest Florida.

    Norfolk passes the midpoint on their way up the mountain, but there's still a lot of climbing left to do.

    STJ-1
    NOR-6

    Norfolk Leads the Series 1-0

    Dustin Tokarski stopped 29 of 30 for the win as Jon Cooper again flexes his superior coaching instincts.

    First Period
    NOR Kostka, (2) (Oberg, Smith), 18:55 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Ouellet, (1) (Johnson, Barberio), 3:08 (PP)
    NOR Kostka, (3) (Devos, Angelidis), 11:04
    NOR Cote, (1) (Smith, Labrie), 13:42

    Third Period
    NOR Palat, (4) (Johnson, Conacher), 1:28
    STJ Redmond, (1) (Trotter, Postma), 2:11 (PP)
    NOR Aulie, (1) (Palat, Conacher), 7:21

    Mike Kostka, Cory Conacher, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Ondrej Palat, Trevor Smith, and Tyler Johnson also contributed multi-point performances.

    Alex Killorn was a scratch for, presumably, health reasons.

    Norfolk's players can enjoy this win for another 2-3 hours tonight, and then they need to erase it from the memory banks. The danger after a win like this is complacency. Norfolk's good, but they're not 5 goals better than the IceCaps on any given night, and they have to be ready to go Saturday night in Game Two. The IceCaps won't lick their wounds long, because they've got the shot for redemption on Saturday and they can be right in the spot they want to be with a 1-1 split, so Norfolk can't go into that game overconfident. They have to bring their lunch buckets and make sure they give themselves the best chance to get that 2-0 lead before heading north.

    Florida opened their Kelly Cup Finals series with Las Vegas by outshooting the Wranglers 33-23, but falling on the scoreboard, 2-1. Las Vegas took a 2-0 lead in the second period, and although Florida cut the lead to one with two minutes left in the game, they couldn’t get the equalizer. The game featured a brawl of sorts at the end of the second period that involved Lightning prospect Charles Landry and former Lightning draft pick Kevin Quick. Las Vegas goaltender Joe Fallon was named first star for stopping 32 of 33 shots. Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson was among those involved in pre-game festivities. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Las Vegas.

    PANIK ATTACK, Y'ALL!!!

    CT-1
    NOR-2 (OT)

    Norfolk Wins the Series 4-2

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 31 shots for the victory. The one goal he allowed was on a weak rebound that ended up ping-ponging behind him, but he was perfect from thereon out. His 30 saves included a penalty shot stop on Connecticut's best scorer, Jonathan Audy-Marchessault, who did Janus a favor by taking his attempt at the pace of a snail's crawl. Easy money for a goaltender as quick and athletic as Janus.

    First Period
    CT Audy-Marchessault, (4) (Hrivik, Wellman), 14:49

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NOR Johnson, (2) (Palat), 10:52

    Overtime
    NOR Panik, (2) (Killorn, Oberg), 17:01

    Richard Panik and Janus were the game's first and second stars. Panik is made of steel. He took a slapshot to the face in the Third Period and looked tough as nails immediately popping up and skating to the locker room for his medical care. No nonsense. Stitch me up. He gets back out midway through Overtime, and on his first shift he absolutely dejocked Cameron Talbot on a backhand-forehand deke for the breakaway winner in Overtime. He was ineffective the final month of the regular season, but what has impressed me in these playoffs is that although the points haven't come in droves, he's been very strong on the puck on the forecheck and he's contributed in other areas. I felt so good for the young man to get the winner.

    What a stretch pass by the already immortal Alex Killorn to get Panik that breakaway. Good Lord. I hope Norfolk's trainer did up Panik's face with that kind of laser-like surgical precision.

    Other than Alexandre Picard, I don't know if there's been any Admirals player who has been as consistently strong as Ondrej Palat in these playoffs. That guy was a playmaking demon tonight. I'm not surprised Norfolk won it in Overtime. I am surprised Palat didn't set up or score the winner. It seemed like he set up at least a half dozen dangerous chances in the game, including Tyler Johnson's key tying goal in the Third Period. I'm really starting to love me some Ondrej Palat.

    It really is a game of (less than) inches. Marek Hrivik had a shot in the Third Period that hit the underside of the crossbar and was waved off that would've given Connecticut a 2-0 lead and likely the game. With Cameron Talbot looking like a wall in net and the Whale defense looking stifling through the first 40 minutes of play, it really did look like the Admirals were going to have to play Game Seven late Sunday afternoon. 1/4 inch lower and Norfolk probably loses. Instead, the Admirals mashed down on the gas pedal and ended up outshooting the Whale 34-7 in the Third and Overtime, after getting outshot 24-12 in the first two frames.

    Norfolk awaits the winner of Game Seven between Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and St. John's tomorrow night in the Eastern Conference Finals after the Penguins took Game Six from the IceCaps earlier tonight 4-2. Norfolk should resolve that whoever makes it out of that series, the Admirals jump on them immediately in Game One. Whoever survives that Game Seven will be emotionally drained and have to travel from St. John's all the way to Norfolk. Jump on them and don't look back. In the West, Oklahoma City finished out their series tonight and they'll face Toronto in the Western Conference Finals.

    OHL

    (E1) Niagara IceDogs 1 @ (W1) London Knights 2
    OHL Finals – London wins best of 7 series 4-1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov , LDN: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 19 GP, 4-14-18, +10, 18 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    The London Knights won the 2011-2012 J. Ross Robertson Cup as OHL champions Friday night with a 2-1 win over Niagara in Game 4 of the Ontario Hockey League finals. Namestnikov stretched his point streak to six games when he flipped the puck to former Lightning camper Seth Griffith while on a 2 on 1. Griffith one-timed the puck into the net for what turned out to be the game-winning goal. Namestnikov finished the playoffs at just under a point-per-game. Predators prospect Austin Watson, who scored the game's first goal, won the Wayne Gretzky 99 Trophy as playoff MVP. Namestnikov will face off against fellow Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier and the QMJHL champion Saint John Sea Dogs on May 19th in the first game of the Memorial Cup for both teams. Shawinigan is in the tournament as hosts, and Edmonton leads Portland 3-2 in the WHL Finals to determine the final participant. Congratulations to Vladdy and Danick on their championships.
