    C'est une belle chose.

    TB-4
    MTL-3 (OT)

    Mike Smith allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the victory. He's a hot mess to watch, but the pucks are hitting him, and the Lightning have the offense to consistently get him to the pay window.

    First Period
    MTL 5:22, Lapierre 1 (unassisted)
    MTL 18:07, Plekanec 1 (Cammalleri, Spacek)

    Second Period
    TB 1:44, Clark 1 (PP) (Purcell, Malone)

    Third Period
    TB 10:54, St. Louis 1 (Stamkos, Jones)
    MTL 11:25, Kostitsyn 1 (Plekanec, Gorges)
    TB 18:41, Stamkos 3 (PP) (Lecavalier, Malone)

    Overtime
    TB 4:09, Malone 1 (Moore)

    Ryan Malone was named the game's first star. Shame on the Montreal media for showing such a lack of class to not give Lecavalier or Stamkos a star for the game tying goal. Shame on the Montreal fan base for booing like a bunch of Panthers fans (all three of them) and then throwing things on the ice when a Montreal defender fell down on the game tying goal. These are supposed to be some of the best fans in the NHL, and they acted the fool tonight. The hockey gods made sure to punish them on Malone's game winner.

    The Lightning outshot the Habs 47 to 27. Teddy Purcell and Steven Stamkos each had 8 shots on goal to lead the way for Tampa Bay. Purcell's a part of the newly found depth the Lightning have, and Stamkos will be an MVP finalist if this keeps up. He has five points in the first two games and he's scoring big goals between the insurance marker against Atlanta and the tying goal tonight.

    I'll keep saying it: I firmly believe Stamkos will win at least one Stanley Cup in Tampa Bay in the next five years, and he might easily win two. He's got something special in the dedication department, and it's something a guy like Ovechkin lacks and something I think he has even more of than Sid Crosby. In the end equation, I have a feeling #91 is why Steve Yzerman took the Lightning job. It's easier to be successful when you inherit a Richard Trophy winner who works harder than 99.9% of the rest of the players in the league. He's like James Brown without the cape and a better shot; the hardest working man in showbiz today, and he's only 20 years old. Part of me is sickened by the fact the NHL isn't the least bit interested in building their brand around Stamkos and would rather market a punk like Ovechkin. On the other hand, the idea of Stamkos being allowed to lay in the weeds of the distraction-free media environment of Tampa Bay and what he could be able to accomplish in it without the spotlight on him intrigues me. In a way, I prefer not having the kind of zoo Montreal has around them on Stamkos' back trying to divert his attention from the only thing that matters to him right now: winning.

    I'm not ashamed to say I loved the way Brett Clark played tonight. He looks to be really well suited for this system. He made a play in the offensive zone in overtime that I didn't believe he was capable of making by splitting two defenders and almost setting up a winning goal on his own. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this Lightning defense looks once Ohlund gets back from the shelf.

    Dana Tyrell had 2 penalty minutes in 5:33 of ice time. Dana, brother, if you want ice time you can't be taking minor penalties when Boucher finally lets you hop the boards.

    Michael Vernace was -1 with 1 shot in 10:57.

    Chekhov 0 @ Cherepovets 4
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 9 GP, 4-5-0, 1 SO, 2.56 GAA, .915 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin's backup, ex-Caps prospect Rostislav Stana, just doesn't stink. The netminder posted a 25 save shutout, his second in four starts this season, to lead Cherepovets to a 4-0 lead over Chekhov. Stana is now 4-0-0 with a 0.75 GAA and .976 sv%. How long will he be the backup with statistics like that? Ex-Flames draft pick Josef Straka had one goal and one assist in the victory.

    Dynamo Riga 3 @ Mytischi 0
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 14 GP, 6-4-10, +5, 20 PIM

    Ex-NHLer Mikael Tellqvist had a 34 save shutout in Dynamo Riga's 3-0 win over Mytischi. Lightning overage prospect Martins Karsums played 15:22 in the match. Ex-NHLer Sandis Ozolinsh had one goal and two assists in the victory.

    BCHL

    Penticton Vees 2 @ Westside Warriors 1 (OT)
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 5-3-8, 6 PIM

    O’Donnell was scoreless coming off a 2-goal game, but he and the Vees will take the road victory.

    WHL

    Kootenay Ice 2 @ Regina Pats 0
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 2-1-3, -3, 21 PIM

    Regina is a league-worst 1-6-1-0 so far this year, and for a team with Jordan Weal and Ashton, that shouldn’t be happening. They managed only 14 shots on goal – at home – on Tuesday. Then again, this was a team that had Jordan Eberle last year and greatly faltered. After scoring 30 two years ago, Ashton fell to 24 goals last year, and with only 2 after 7 games, he can’t be happy with his (or the team’s) production so far, especially considering he had such a good Lightning camp and exhibition season.

    Novosibirsk 2 @ Kazan 3 (OT)
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM

    Ex-Blues draft pick Evgeny Skachkov had one goal and one assist, including the overtime winner, in Kazan's 3-2 victory over Novosibirsk. Lightning overage prospect Dmitri Kazionov took a minor penalty for boarding in 13:49 of ice time in the match. Kazionov is still looking for his first point of the season. Kazionov had 18 goals and 27 points in 52 games last season.

    OHL

    Ottawa 67’s 4 @ Oshawa Generals 3
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 22 saves on 26
    Season Totals: 4-1-0-0, 3.61 GAA, .894 sv%

    Zador got a confidence boost when Coach/GM Chris DePiero put him right back in net after Zador was pulled in his previous game. Zador wasn’t great, however, and suffered his first (technically) loss of the year against the 67’s despite the Gens outshooting Ottawa 36-26. This is a crucial time for Zador, who struggled mightily with consistency last season. If he can right this quickly, it could go a long way to him getting a contract this spring. If he continues to ride the roller coaster, the uphill climb to a contract gets steeper.

    WHL

    Prince George Cougars 7 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 8
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 6-5-11, -1, 2 PIM

    Connolly, who has at least a point in all 8 games this year, scored the game’s first 2 goals, but the Cougars would later blow a 6-3 third period lead in 6 minutes and eventually have to tie the game to send it to overtime. The Oil Kings won it in the extra session.

  • 5 years 50 weeks ago

    Dynamo Minsk 4 @ Cherepovets 3 (OT)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, OTL, 37/41, 3.75 GAA, .902 sv%
    Season totals: 9 GP, 4-5-0, 1 SO, 2.56 GAA, .915 sv%

    Leo Komarev scored a power play goal 3:58 into overtime to send Vasily Koshechkin and Cherepovets to a 4-3 defeat. Yuri Trubachev had one goal and one assist for Cherepovets. Trubachev was a linemate of ex-Lightning prospect Alex Polushin during a gold medal run at the U20 World Junior Championships.

    Dynamo Riga 5 @ Yaroslavl 3
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-1-1, +1, 4 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 13 GP, 6-4-10, +5, 20 PIM

    Ex-Penguin Tomas Surovy had two goals and one assist to lead Riga to a 5-3 win over Yaroslavl. Martins Karsums assisted on one of Surovy's goals and took minor penalties for slashing and interference in 15:19 in the match.

    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM (hooking, cross-checking), 1 SOG

    Montreal Juniors 2 @ St. John Sea Dogs 5
    D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, +4, 0 PIM

    Landry has missed Montreal’s last four games, but word is he's set to return from injury shortly. The Juniors are quickly falling behind Drummondville in the race for the Telus West Division lead. The Volts are five points ahead of Montreal.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 2 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 1
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 16 PIM

    After starting the season 3-0, the Soo has lost their last five and are in the OHL Western Division cellar with six points.

  • 5 years 50 weeks ago

    Canisius Golden Griffins 2 @ Western Michigan Broncos 3 (OT)
    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-1-1, Even, 0 PIM, 3 SOG

    Season Totals: 3 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 2 PIM

    Mullin (pictured) had his first multipoint USHL game, though it came in a losing effort. The Miami-Ohio commit leads Fargo in goals and is tied for the points lead after three games.

    QMJHL

    Montreal Juniors 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 3 (SO)
    D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, +4, 0 PIM

    Landry has missed Montreal’s last three games.

    OHL

    Belleville Bulls 4 @ Sarnia Sting 3
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 5-5-10, +2, 11 PIM

    Panik earned his second First Star of the season after a three point night. This is exactly what the Lightning want to see from Panik at the junior level – lighting up the scoreboard. Panik has all the skills to be an elite forward at this level.

    Brampton Battalion 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 4
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, +3, 0 PIM
