    Lightning crumble in final 20:24.

    TOR-4
    TB-3 (SO)

    Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 39 shots before allowing 2 of 6 shooters to convert for the shootout loss. He looked really good for the first 39:36 of the game. He was moving well. Following the puck. Then he overplayed on Jason Blake to allow the first goal and his fundamentals started to come unglued. His rebound control went straight to hell. His five-hole got big enough to drive a truck through. I give him credit for battling his way to get the point and he was game in the shootout, but that's a game Karri's got to help his team close out. Fundamentals. Fundamentals. Fundamentals. On the good side, he's claimed 6 of the last 8 available points.

    Shootout
    TOR- Hamilton, Mitchell
    TB- Lecavalier

    Hard luck by the Lightning in the shootout as Stamkos and St. Louis both rang posts. Hint to Rick Tocchet: Lashoff's awesome at shootouts.

    We'll have to see if the Lightning make a recall with Cory Murphy going down to injury. Vladimir Mihalik?

    Noah Welch had 2 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 18:29. If he plays every game down the stretch, he'll graduate and be a Bolt Prospects alumni. This saddens me. See: Stewart, Karl.

    Matt Smaby was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 20:57. He was more subdued than usual tonight.

    David Koci had a 10 minute misconduct, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 4:47.

    Paul Szczechura was +1 with 1 shot and 2 blocked shots in 13:31. He was also 70% on draws. He looked good tonight. His whole line did with Pettinger and Karsums.

    Martins Karsums had an assist and was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 10:19. Still waiting for him to put it all together, but he was better tonight.

    Richard Petiot had 2 hits in 18:59 against his former organization.

    Matt Lashoff was -1 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 22:58. You can see why he was a guy the Lightning were willing to give considerably to get. His skating is smooth as silk, and he's got some skill. Between Lashoff, Ranger, and Meszaros the Lightning will have a ridiculously mobile defense next season. The downside with Lashoff? Tocchet needs to get him to take the body more in the defensive zone. If he can get that out of Lashoff, he's a top-four in this league. Even if he doesn't, he's a real nice number five d-man in the making; a great piece to add to the puzzle.

    WHL
    Kelowna Rockets 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 0
    G Dustin Tokarski, SPO: Loss, 23 saves on 24 shots, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 54 GP, 34-18-0-2, 1.97 GAA, .937 sv%, 7 shutouts

    Mark Guggenberger (undrafted) stopped 22 shots for his first WHL shutout as Kelowna wraps up the West’s 3 seed with a 1-0 win in Spokane over the Chiefs. Spokane managed just 4 shots in the third period. Brandon McMillan (Anaheim) scored mid-way through the first period for the Rockets, and Tyler Myers, Tyson Barrie and the rest of the Kelowna defense made it stand up. McMillian is a forward who now plays defense. Kelowna played without three injured regulars, including center Mikael Backlund (Calgary). Spokane was missing four defensemen and a forward who was suspended.

    Spokane will host 5-seed Seattle in the first round, though they have one regular season game remaining Tuesday night against Tri-City. It’s doubtful many regulars will see action in that game, including Tokarski, who should finish as the league leader in GAA, save percentage (by 16 points), shutouts (tie), and shootouts (86%).

    Fadden Team Co-MVP
    Mitch Fadden and Predators pick Chet Pickard were named team co-MVPs by the Tri-City Americans during their team awards Sunday night. Fadden also took home the U.S. Cellular Three Stars award. Unofficially, Fadden had 9 first stars, 5 seconds, and 3 thirds.

    Hockey East Tournament - Round 1 - Game 3
    Massachusetts Minutemen 2 @ #4 Northeastern Huskies 3 OT
    Northeastern wins best of three series 2-1
    D John Wessbecker UMASS: 0-0-0, 1 SOG, Even, 2 PIM

    John Tuckerman's second goal of the game came midway through the first OT period and sent the Huskies on to Round 2 and UMASS home. Its doubtfull that the Minutemen are Tourney bound so this may have been John Wessbeckers last collegiate game.

    Hockey East Tournament - Round 1 - Game 2
    Massachusetts Minutemen 1 @ #4 Northeastern Huskies 4
    Best of three series tied 1-1
    D John Wessbecker UMASS: 0-0-0, -1

    Game 2 was much more of what was expected...Game 3 Sunday.

    Hockey East Tournament - Round 1 - Game 2
    UMASS-Lowell River Hawks 4 @ #7 Vermont Catamounts 2
    UMASS-Lowell wins best of three series 2-0
    F Matt Marshall Ver: Did not play

    Vermont goes 1 for 6 on PP and is upset in Round 1. Catamounts now sit back and watch rest of tourney play out. Being ranked in top 10 for most of season, they should be an easy bet for a NCAA tournament bid.

    Vengeance wore a blue jersey tonight.

    NOR-5
    BNG-2

    Craig Kowalski allowed 2 goals on 34 shots for the win.

    Third Period

    NOR Jones, (17) (Simek, Hooton), 9:20
    BNG Mauldin, (18) (Regin), 11:08

    Kowalski and Radek Smolenak were the game's first and second stars. Smolenak is just one goal away from hitting 20 for the first time in his professional career. Meanwhile, Blair Jones moved just 3 goals shy of accomplishing the same feat.

    Two Chris Lawrence sitings in as many nights?

    God I love beating the Florida Panthers.

    TB-4
    FLA-3 (SO)

    Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 37 shots in regulation and overtime before stopping all three shooters for the big shootout victory. Ramo has helped his club claim 5 of the last 6 available points, all in road games. The young man is staking his claim to be Mike Smith's backup next season. We're watching a boy becoming a man under some very tough circumstances.

    First Period
    15:49 FLA Frolik (18), (Booth)

    Second Period
    17:11 FLA Booth (25), (Stillman, Weiss)(PP)
    18:21 TB Murphy (5), (St. Louis, Stamkos)(PP)

    Third Period
    05:35 FLA Booth (26), (Weiss, Frolik)
    13:42 TB St. Louis (26), (Krajicek, Petiot)
    16:30 TB Halpern (5), (Petiot, Prospal)

    Shootout
    TB- Stamkos
    FLA- NONE

    Noah Welch was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 10:19.

    Matt Smaby was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 25:36. Whereas Ramo is growing up before our eyes, I dare not call Smaby anything less than a grown-ass man out there right now.

    Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and 1 hit in 14:01. He was also 36% on 11 draws.

    Martins Karsums had 5 hits and 1 blocked shot in 9:28. There's something Ryan Johnson-esque about the way he racks up hit totals despite being physically ineffective.

    Richard Petiot had 2 assists and was +2 with 5 hits and 2 blocked shots in 21:36. He skates like a horse, but somehow he manages to get the job done. He's completely outshined Noah Welch so far, which I doubt anybody saw coming when the two overage prospects were acquired at the deadline.
