    Season totals: 10 GP, 6-4-0, 4 SO, 1.51 GAA, .933 sv%

    Riku Helenius sat backup on the second half of the back-to-back as JYP defeated HIFK 5-1. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had a helper in the win. JYP's next match is a week from Tuesday against TPS as Europe heads into the Karjala Cup break.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    AIK 0 @ Lulea 2
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 20 GP, 7-3-10, +2, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju was scoreless in Lulea's 2-0 shutout win over AIK. AIK goaltender Viktor Fasth, rumored as a Lightning target in the offseason, stopped 35/37 in the loss. Lulea is off until a week from Thursday for the Karjala Cup, when they'll play Timra.

    As expected, Nikita Kucherov did not appear for CSKA Jr. today in their 4-1 loss to Mytischi Jr., as he is headed to North America to participate in the annual Subway Superseries.

    Season Totals: 15 GP, 0-3-3, -4, 13 PIM

    Milan has only registered a point in one of his last 13 games. He had a quiet night on the scoresheet Friday, but is no doubt happy Moncton got a win in Halifax.

    Big win. Big, big win.

    CHI-4
    TB-5 (OT)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the victory. The stat line isn't a beauty, but his first period was superlative to give the Lightning a chance.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    TB Stamkos (7), (Malone, Bergeron), 0:15
    CHI Sharp (4), (Toews, Kane)(PP), 1:05
    TB Connolly (2), (St. Louis, Lecavalier), 4:55
    CHI Hossa (7), (Kane, Montador), 6:17
    CHI Carcillo (1), (unassisted), 7:10
    CHI Sharp (5), (Kane, Hossa), 7:22
    TB Stamkos (8), (Purcell), 11:45
    TB Stamkos (9), (St. Louis, Malone)(PP), 19:27

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    TB Lecavalier (6), (St. Louis, Bergeron), 4:06

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    What a roller coaster. Chicago should be considered a legitimate contender to come out of the West this year, and they looked like they totally outclassed the Lightning in the first period in terms of speed and puck possession. It was a bit of a clinic, with the saving grace being Dwayne Roloson's play.

    The Lightning started to take some baby steps in the second period, getting a couple of 1 goal leads, but then you had some mistakes, particularly a M.A. Bergeron turnover at the point that led to Daniel Carcillo's breakaway goal. 3 goals very quickly by Chicago and the Lightning looked like dead meat. Then Steven Stamkos reminded the NHL why he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with Crosby and Ovechkin. He bodied a defender to force a turnover that led to his second goal, and then Marty St. Louis made a magical read and pass to set Stammer for an easy one-timer goal for the hat trick. Stammer was absolutely dominant in the third period, too, and could've had 6-7 goals with a little luck. Amazing. The Hawks should be glad he got drafted by an Eastern Conference team because he absolutely owns Chicago when he plays them.

    It was a strong third period on the forecheck for the Lightning, with just a few scary moments against Chicago's top line. And then, in overtime, M.A. Bergeron redeemed himself with a great play to steal the puck in the offensive zone, roll over his wrists on a tough pass that Marty St. Louis made a great pick on, and then the easy 2 on 1 conversion down low by Lecavalier. That play was like stealing.

    The game, as a whole, is not something you want to do every night. The defensive sloppiness and a 3 quick goal scenario is something that can't keep happening. But, when you have your best player show how dominant he can be and when you defeat a team that is a legitimate Cup contender, that works wonders for a team's confidence. It certainly feels better than sitting at .500 after getting fed their helmets by the Canes.

    Brett Connolly had a goal and 2 penalty minutes with 2 shots in 13:37.

    Florida Everblades 1 @ South Carolina Stingrays 4

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: 0-0-0, -3, 5 SOG, 0 PIM

    Season Totals: 6 GP, 2-4-0, 4.22 GAA, .840 sv%, 0 SO

    Florida (2-6-0-1) lost their fourth straight game, falling to South Carolina 4-1 despite limiting the Stingrays to 15 shots. The ‘Blades only allowed two shots in the third period – and South Carolina scored on both of them. Pat Nagle’s save percentage fell below .850 again. With John Muse being returned to Florida from Charlotte, Nagle may be watching a lot more games. Alex Hutchings was a team-worst minus-3 for Florida and saw his three-game point streak snapped.
