    Finland 1 @ Canada 8
    Brett Connolly, Canada, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Tournament totals: 1 GP, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM

    Senators prospect Mark Stone had a hat trick and Panthers prospect Jonathan Huberdeau had 1 goal and 5 points in Canada's 8-1 slaughter of Finland. Lightning prospect Brett Connolly also had a goal in the contest, and was named an assistant captain for the Canadians. Canada draws Czech Republic next on Wednesday.

    Switzerland 0 @ Russia 3
    Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Tournament totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

    Russian netminder Andrei Vasilevski weathered 40 shots for the shootout victory in Russia's 3-0 win over Switzerland. Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov assisted on the Russian's final goal, an insurance marker by Mikhail Grigorienko late in the second period. For his part, fellow Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov (pictured) continued the theme of his season going +2. No one collects pluses quite like Nikita Nesterov. He also took a minor for interference early in the third period. Russia faces Slovakia next on Wednesday.

Koshechkin has spent most of the last month in the backup role behind Vadim Tarasov. Cherepovets will draw Spartak Moscow next on Tuesday.

    Pre-tournament

    Canada 3 vs. Sweden 5

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-0-0, 2 PIM (slashing)

    Canada finished their pre-tournament games 2-1 after a loss to Sweden Friday night. They open play Monday against Finland. Connolly finished the three games with one assist and a penalty.

    Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman (pictured with Sweden at the WJCs in 2009) tweeted after the game: "Congrats to the Swedish WJC team that beat Canada today ! Let's do that again later in the tournament"

    Slovakia 0 vs. USA 5

    Trenton Titans 3 @ Florida Everblades 6

    RW Philip-Michael Devos, FLA: 1-2-3, +1, 2 SOG, 2 PIM (slashing), *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 6-14-20, -2, 12 PIM (Norfolk property)
    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-1-1, +2, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-3-3, +3, 0 PIM
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 43 saves on 46 shots, 17 PIM
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 10-8-0, 3.08 GAA, .898 sv%, 1 SO

    Philip-Michael Devos had another three point game, Charles Landry had his third assist in his sixth ECHL game, and the Florida Everblades topped the Trenton Titans 6-3. But… the real story is old time hockey – aka a line brawl – happened a year to the day that the ‘Blades were involved in their last Christmas massacre. It’s safe to say that their horrific Christmas jerseys are just a cover for a team that has anything but the Christmas spirit – unless the Christmas spirit involves punching, face washing and Lightning prospect Pat Nagle skating the length of the ice to get in on the action. Let’s hope Santa wasn’t watching. I know this – next year on the last game before Christmas I’m buying a ticket for the Evergrinches game. Nagle was kicked out for leaving his crease to fight (see video below). Maybe he can make the Lightning as an enforcer. Alex Hutchings remains out with an upper-body injury. He hasn’t played since November 12.

    I wouldn't call that a microcosm of the season, but it does seem a fitting way to pull into the holiday break.

    TB-1
    COL-2 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 29 shots for the overtime loss. He made some very strong saves over the course of this game to keep his team alive, and got some help from the 4 x 6, too. But, without a doubt, that short side softie cannot happen. Very disappointing.

    First Period
    TB Kubina (2), (Lecavalier, St. Louis), 18:09

    Second Period
    COL O'Reilly (8), (O'Brien, Hedjuk), 10:03

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    COL Duchene (12), (Elliot, Landeskog), 3:38

    Pavel Kubina was the game's third star.

    The effort level was a zillion times better in this game than against San Jose. The team played with the urgency of a team that is running short on time to turn their season around, because that's exactly what they are. Still, some of the fundamental problems the team has had cropped up in this game. Foremost, it was hard for me to muster too much outrage over poor officiating (like a missed call on a reverse DDT on Blair Jones and a missed 4 minute high sticking minor on Kubina) knowing full well the Lightning's power play has next to no chance of doing anything with the man advantage right now. It's so bad, a successful power play for the Lightning seems to be the shallow moral victory of not allowing a good shorthanded scoring chance over the course of the 2 minutes.

    J.T. Wyman had 2 shots and 1 hit in 6:01. He had good energy in a spare number of shifts.

    Blair Jones had 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 10:13, and he kicked out before the 3 count was administered after taking the best finishing move the Avs defense could muster. He would like to challenge them to a steel cage match at the next pay per view, but wants a special referee named, because the ones tonight were terrible.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 1 @ Magnitogorsk 4
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 20 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Oleg Tverdovsky, a blast from the past, scored the game winning goal for Magnitogorsk in their 4-1 thumping of Cherepovets. Cherepovets will face Khanty-Mansiysk on Sunday.

    Pre-tournament

    Canada 7 vs. Switzerland 1

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM

    Canada earned their second pre-tournament win in two games before the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships in Alberta. Connolly did not register a point, but as one of the team’s alternate captains was entrusted with penalty kill duty – a sign of respect from legendary junior coach Don Hay.

    Russia 5 vs. Czech Republic 3

    RW Nikita Kucherov, RUS: 0-2-2
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, RUS: 0-0-0
    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0

    These totals are very unofficial as no score was listed on the tournament’s official site and the boxscore was posted on a message board. If it helps, one of the comments from someone at the game said Kucherov looked good. Let’s just assume it’s true. Namestnikov and Nesterov weren’t on the scoresheet, so they could have been scoreless or they may not have played. In fact, respected Russian reporter Dmitry Chesnokov is reporting Namestnikov was cut from the team. Nesterov and Kucherov made the team. (Photo of Kucherov's celebration is from the USA game earlier this week)

    Slovakia 0 vs. Finland 3

    D Adam Janosik, SVK: 0-0-0, 0 PIM

    Finland topped Slovakia in pre-tournament action Wednesday.

    Trenton Titans 2 @ Florida Everblades 3 (OT)

    RW Philip-Michael Devos, FLA: 1-2-3, E, 4 SOG, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 5-12-17, -3, 10 PIM (Norfolk property)
    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, -1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 27 saves on 29 shots
    Season Totals: 18 GP, 9-8-0, 3.08 GAA, .894 sv%, 1 SO

    Philip-Michael Devos (pictured), recently returned to the ‘Blades from AHL Norfolk, had a goal and two assists, including getting a helper on Scott Pitt’s bad angle game-winner with 14 seconds left in overtime as Florida beat Trenton. Devos scored his fifth of the year with under two minutes remaining to send the game to overtime. Alex Hutchings remains out with an upper-body injury. He hasn’t played since November 12.
