    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.

    Slovakia 0 vs. Finland 3

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

    Finland topped Slovakia in pre-tournament action Wednesday.

    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

    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.

    It was late. The Lightning mailed it in (at least the first period). I don't feel bad about mailing it in late, either. I don't understand how this team, knowing Martin St. Louis was about to pull a Willis Reed, could be so ill prepared to compete at the opening face off. They lost every 50/50 battle along the wall. They allowed themselves to routinely be outmanned in those 50/50 situations. It was just a lack of hustle and want-to. It's as if they expected Marty's return, in of itself, to win the game. No. #26 is not the Messiah. You still have to be prepared to compete and fight against a really good and talented team like San Jose. Now the game in Colorado is essentially a must-win going into the holiday break. Looking forward to the greatness of JT Wyman being unleashed on the Avalanche, possibly.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 4 @ Omsk 3 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 20 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin is still riding the pine for Cherepovets. They beat Omsk today 4-3 in a shootout. Ex-Lightning netminder Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 31 shots in the loss. Cherepovets draws Magnitogorsk on Friday.

    Russia 6 vs. USA 3 (Pre-tournament match)

    RW Nikita Kucherov, RUS: 2-0-2, 0 PIM
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, RUS: 0-0-0, 2 PIM
    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: Did not play

    Russia beat the U.S. 6-3 in Red Deer, Alberta, Tuesday night in pre-World Junior Championship exhibition play. The stats listed above are unofficial and based off comments from reporters at the game. Kucherov’s first goal was on the power play and his second was scored into an empty net. Russia still has to cut six players, but all Lightning prospects should be safe. The “real” games start the day after Christmas. (Pictured: Kucherov scoring on Stars first rounder Jack Campbell)

    Canada 3 vs. Finland 1 (Pre-tournament match)

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM

    Canada got a win in their first pre-tournament game before the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships in Alberta. Monday night they took down Finland 3-1 in Calgary’s Saddledome. Lightning winger Brett Connolly, permitted to join Canada by Bolts general manager Steve Yzerman, had an assist for the Canadians on Boone Jenner's goal. Last year Connolly had three assists in seven games for Canada.

    Additional Lightning prospects in the tournament include Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikita Kucherov, and Nikita Nesterov for Russia, and Adam Janosik for Slovakia.

    Season Totals: 29 GP, 0-4-4, -9, 27 PIM

    Norfolk throws down the gauntlet in the AHL East Division, after spending the entire third period smacking Hershey in the face with it.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the win. He had a rough first period allowing a quick goal early and a bad goal late to drop the Ads down 3-1. But, credit to the scrappy Slovakian tender, he shut the door the rest of the way to earn his second straight win.

    First Period
    HER Rechlicz, (1) (Brouillette, Flemming), 2:47
    HER Micflikier, (11) (Ford, Potulny), 11:46
    NOR Ouellet, (8) (Devos, Angelidis), 16:12
    HER Bourque, (16) (Kane, Aucoin), 19:56

    Second Period

    Third Period
    NOR Wyman, (6) (Barberio, Janus), 4:33
    NOR Devos, (1) (Barberio, Kostka), 6:43
    NOR Smith, (14) (Ouellet, Barberio), 13:59 (PP)
    NOR Panik, (4) (Devos), 14:58
    NOR Johnson, (12) (Angelidis, Wyman), 18:52 (EN)

    Philip-Michael Devos and Mark Barberio were the game's first and second stars.

    Wow. Just, wow. It takes a really good team to do that to Hershey in Hershey, especially on the third night of a three game weekend. Holy cow. Norfolk knots the East Division up all over again with 37 points a piece between the Bears, Penguins, and Admirals, although Norfolk is giving up a game in hand. Still, I don't think they'll enjoy what the Admirals left underneath their trees in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Hershey the last two nights. Those weren't just wins, those were statements of intent for a hostile takeover of the East.

    Panik attack, y'all.

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Sioux City Musketeers 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Did not play (backup)
    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

    Uh-oh. Wilcox’s partner in net, Phoenix Copley, started and excelled in his third straight game. He also started and allowed just one goal in a win on Tuesday. Wilcox was traded from Green Bay because they couldn’t offer him the starts he deserved. Tri-City is likely “just” going with the hot hand, but Lightning fans would like that hot hand to be Wilcox. Of course, Wilcox has to do his part, and he’s lost his last four games.


    Kitchener Rangers 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 3

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

    Third place (Midwest Division) Owen Sound outshot second place Kitchener 44-24 on their way to a big win over the Rangers at home. Schemitsch has been scoreless in his three games since returning from an injury. Prior to being hurt on November 12 he had points in four of his last six games.

    QMJHL Note: Lightning prospect Adam Janosik of Gatineau has joined Team Slovakia in preparation for the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships.
