    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 4 @ Lukko 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 16/17, 1.00 GAA, .941 sv%
    Season totals: 15 GP, 9-6-0, 6 SO, 1.47 GAA, .932 sv%

    Remember the days when Riku Helenius (pictured) allowing 1 goal in a win would have been exciting? Now, if he doesn't get a shutout, we wonder what went wrong. He's raised the bar that much this season. In fairness, he somewhat made up for it by assisting on JYP's opening goal by Jani Tuppuainen. JYP now sails off into the Channel One Cup break and won't play again until the Tuesday after Christmas against SaiPa. The Channel One Cup will run from 12/15 through 12/18.

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-3-7, +5, 6 PIM

    Miami bounced back after a sweep to Northern Michigan last weekend. Mullin (pictured) snapped a three game pointless streak in the win.

    No. 8 Western Michigan Broncos 3 @ Bowling Green Falcons 3 (OT)

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-1-1, even, 0 PIM, 2 PIM

    F Brendan O'Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, even, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 11 GP, 3-0-3, even, 0 PIM

    The Sioux's four game win streak was snapped in the overtime loss.

    Sacred Heart Pioneers 1 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 6

    F Matthew Peca, QUI: 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM, 2 SOG

    Des Moines Buccaneers 5 @ Tri-City Storm 3

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 28 saves on 32 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 5 GP, 1-4-0, 3.22 GAA, .910 sv%, 0 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    After winning his first game as a member of the Storm, Wilcox has dropped his last four, though he has managed to maintain a respectable save percentage through the slump.


    Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking), 3 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 2-16-18, +1, 27 PIM

    Gatineau broke a four game losing streak and Janosik snapped a five game scoreless streak as the Olympiques avenged an overtime loss to the Eagles earlier in the week with a 5-2 home win Friday. Emile Poirier (2013 draft) had a hat trick for Gatineau, which doubled the rookie’s goal output for the year. Janosik, as expected, was named to Team Slovakia’s preliminary roster for the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships. He had five assists in six games for Slovakia at last year’s WJCs.


    Peterborough Petes 4 @ London Knights 7
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-4-4, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 16-21-37, +9, 28 PIM

    Namestnikov (pictured) tied a career high with four points and his linemate (and Lightning camper) Seth Griffith had a hat trick and an assist to lead London to a 7-4 home win over the Petes. Namestnikov’s four points were a season high for him, but he had a four point game (3+1) last February against Barrie. His four assists in the game were a career high.

    Elmira Jackals 2 @ Florida Everblades 8

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 28 saves on 30 shots, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-6-0, 3.20 GAA, .890 sv%, 1 SO

    A snowman in southwest Florida! Nagle bounced back from a poor outing Wednesday with a solid 28 saves Friday in a big Everblades win over Elmira. The Everblades’ eight goals were a season high. Matt Beca (pictured), the former Clarkston star, had a goal and four assists for Florida. Carolina draft pick Justin Shugg, who was just sent down to the ‘Blades, contributed two assists. This game got a little chippy, which should mean the third game of a three game series set for Saturday night will be a good one. Alex Hutchings remains out with an undisclosed injury.

    Tic is rolling.


    Dustin Tokarski (pictured smirking like a man on a long winning streak) allowed 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory. That's 5 straight wins for Tic, and he's quietly moved into a tie for 4th in the league in wins with 10. This is what he does. He goes on long, long streaks and you just have to keep feeding him starts (and hope it translates to the NHL someday soon).

    First Period
    NOR Ouellet, (5) (Smith), 7:09

    Second Period
    BNG Petersson, (8) (Cannone, Gryba), 9:30
    NOR Fornataro, (1) (Smith, Devos), 13:39 (PP)
    NOR Kostka, (3) , 18:47
    NOR Conacher, (13) (Labrie), 19:40

    Second Period
    NOR Smith, (11) (Conacher, Barberio), 18:38 (PP)

    Trevor Smith, Matt Fornataro, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Smith pulls past teammate Cory Conacher into 4th in the league in points by 1 with 28 in 25 games.

    These two teams rematch again tomorrow night. The victory pushes Norfolk into a three-way tie with Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for the top spot in the division at 31 points. It's the curse of playing in one of the two best divisions in the AHL.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    Blues 3 @ JYP 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 14 GP, 8-6-0, 6 SO, 1.51 GAA, .931 sv%

    Riku Helenius sat backup as JYP fell to Espoo 3-1. JYP faces Lukko on Saturday.

    Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 4

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 26 GP, 0-4-4, -7, 25 PIM

    Milan has not registered a point in eight games. He is minus-5 during that time. Milan is fourth in points for the year among Wildcat defensemen. While Lightning management said they signed Milan for his defensive abilities and offense is a bonus, one suspects they weren't expecting him to slump this bad after a 38-point rookie season.


    Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Barrie Colts 5

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 20 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

    Schemitsch (pictured) hasn’t played since November 12 because of an upper body injury. He is still being listed as day-to-day. Mark Scheifele, who started the season with the Winnipeg Jets, had two goals in the game for Barrie. He has 11 goals and 32 points in 18 games this season for the Colts.

    The best #19 on the ice tonight wore white.

    NYR-2 (SO)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 30 shots before turning away all 3 shooters he faced for the shootout win. Credit Garon with the second point tonight for standing on his head in overtime.

    First Period
    NYR Callahan (11), (Richards, Stepan)(PP), 7:49

    Second Period
    TB Malone (6), (unassisted), 11:23
    NYR Anisimov (5), (Del Zotto, Dubinsky)(SH), 13:23

    Third Period
    TB Moore (2), (Hedman, Brewer)(SH), 18:03


    TB- Moore

    Dominic Moore and Ryan Malone were the game's first and third stars.

    3:50 left in the game. Lightning down 1. Ryan Malone going off for boarding. Martin St. Louis laid up in the hospital with fractures from a puck to the face. Looking a 6 game losing streak square in the face.

    And then Dominic Moore, who was the guy who broke St. Louis' face in practice earlier in the day, decided to put on a cape. The "S" on it stood for "shorthanded goal." Then it stood for "shootout winner." Then is stood for "streak is over."

    Is the team fixed? No. But there's a little life in it, after looking dead as a doornail with 4 minutes left in regulation.

    Oh, and a guy on a pace for 16 goals pretending like he's a longrifle wielding sniper is comical. If "Ovechkin" was Russian for "punk," then "Anisimov" must be Russian for "dummy." Wish I could've heard Tortorella's inner monologue when his player decided to act the fool like that.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 9:55.

    Blair Jones had 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 4:24.

    KHL (Russia):
    Novgorod 3 @ Cherepovets 2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 20 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin again sat backup in Cherepovets' 3-2 loss to Novgorod. The two teams will rematch on Sunday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 4 @ Vaxjo 2
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 29 GP, 10-5-15, +5, 10 PIM

    Johan Harju had an empty net goal and a minor for hooking in Lulea's 4-2 win over Vaxjo. The goal moves Harju into the top-10 in the league in scoring. He is tied with 3 others, including former Edmonton prospect Rob Schremp, for 8th, 4 back of the league leader. Lulea faces AIK next on Sunday.

    Elmira Jackals 5 @ Florida Everblades 4

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Loss, 14 saves on 19 shots
    Season Totals: 13 GP, 6-6-0, 3.29 GAA, .886 sv%, 1 SO

    With regular No.1 goaltender John Muse called up to Charlotte of the AHL, Florida needed Lightning prospect Pat Nagle to stand tall, but the first year pro had a rough night Wednesday in a home loss to Elmira. Nagle stopped just 14 of 19 shots as Elmira overcame a 3-2 second period deficit to win. He nearly had his second assist in a week when he started a play that ended up in the Everblades' first goal, but unfortunately for him they don't award three assists on each goal.

    Former Buffalo Sabres captain Craig Rivet scored his first goal of the season for the Jackals. In a blast from the Lightning’s past, defenseman Mario Laroque – the Lightning’s first round pick in 1996 – had a goal and two assists for Elmira. He spent last year in the Central Hockey League with the Evansville IceMen.

    Lightning GM Phil Esposito took Laroque (pictured) 16th overall in the summer of 1996. He made his NHL debut two years later, playing in five games for the Bolts. He would never see NHL ice again and was out of the organization a few years later. He’s bounced around North America and played a couple years overseas since then. His most successful statistical year was for UHL Fort Wayne in 2006-2007 when he had 67 points (27 goals) in 76 games. Laroque was the first defenseman taken by the Lightning in the first round since they took Roman Hamrlik with the first overall pick in their first draft (1992).
