    Man, Columbus is dreadful.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the win.

    First Period
    TB Angelidis (1), (unassisted), 13:20
    CBJ Lebda (1), (Brassard, Umberger), 15:07

    Second Period
    TB Lecavalier (19), (Gervais, St. Louis)(PP), 8:19
    TB St. Louis (12), (Lecavalier), 16:56

    Third Period
    CBJ Johansen (9), (Umberger), 5:40
    TB Thompson (5), (Moore, Smith), 11:29

    Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, and Bruno Gervais were the game's three stars.

    Columbus is horrible. If the Lightning had a more functional power play or if Curtis Sanford had been a little worse, the Lightning would've easily doubled their margin of victory. It's a nice win to have going into the All-Star Break, but they're terrible. They looked like a Junior A team, at times.

    The Lightning probably will get a slew of guys back from injury after the break. That's good, because Norfolk's just about down to the popcorn vendors as far as their roster goes.

    Brett Connolly had 1 hit in 6:43.

    Trevor Smith had an assist and was +2 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 13:39. Here's a guy making a move to try and stick. At a bare minimum, he's getting quality minutes on tape for other NHL teams to evaluate.

    Evan Oberg had 1 hit in 1:21 in his debut after being called up from the Delta Airlines Frequent Flyer Club.

    Mike Angelidis had a goal and was +1 with 1 shot in 4:01. It was a soft as hell goal, but no one deserved that moment more than a hard working guy like Angelidis.

    Finally, Pierre-Cedric Labrie was -1 with 3 hits in 5:01.

Norfolk defenseman Kevin Quick was assigned to the Everblades over the weekend. He was minus-2 with two shots on goal on Sunday. ( photo)

    MHL (Russia):
    CSKA Jr. 9 @ Poprad Jr. 4

    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    You know, a point a game pace is impressive, but a goal a game pace is borderline ridiculous. That's what Nikita Kucherov's MHL season looks like after he had a hat trick today in CSKA Jr.'s 9-4 win over Poprad. One of Kucherov's three talleys came on the power play and he also took a double minor for roughing as the game got chippy late in the third period. CSKA Jr. is off until Wednesday when they'll play Bobriusk.

    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.
