    This is why you don't wait until February to try to make your move in the standings.

    TB-1 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the overtime loss.

    First Period

    Second Period
    WPG Wheeler (10), (Slater, Ladd), 19:44

    Third Period
    TB Hedman (3), (St. Louis, Stamkos), 10:34

    WPG Wellwood (10), (Wheeler, Byfuglien), 3:14

    Victor Hedman was the game's second star.

    The Lightning probably deserved the second point tonight, on balance, but this is why you can't take points in the first half of the season lightly. The margin of error right now for the Lightning is so razor thin, they can't afford to run up against a hot goaltender or some bad luck.

    Truth be told, though, I felt the Lightning lost the game on a very lifeless, pathetic looking power play late in the third period. They had all the momentum in the period and drew a power play that should have given them the dagger blow opportunity, and Winnipeg outshot them 2-0 on the chance. The Jets had all the juice from there on out, especially in overtime, and the rest is history.

    Steve Yzerman made a hell of a deal to get Brendan Mikkelson for Blair Jones.

    Don't you wish Victor Hedman had the confidence and experience to jump into the rush more?

    J.T. Wyman had 1 shot and 2 hits in 7:53.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 1 shot and 1 hit in 5:10.

    Rimouski Oceanic 8 @ Victoriaville Tigres 7 (OT)

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 46 GP, 1-6-7, -14, 43 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 13 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 12 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Victoriaville’s Stefan Fournier (undrafted) had four goals and two assists, but it wasn’t enough to get two points from Rimouski Wednesday night. Jean-Francois Plante (undrafted) scored his 16th goal of the year in overtime to give the Oceanic the win.

    Season totals: 21 GP, 14-12-26, +3, 33 PIMs

    Should I feel outraged about the bad refereeing?

    TB 4 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the win.

    First Period
    WSH Hendricks (2), (Laich), 16:55
    TB Purcell (13), (Downie, Stamkos), 18:50

    Second Period
    TB St. Louis (13), (Pyatt, Clark), 1:05
    TB Thompson (6), (Moore, Wyman), 10:59
    WSH Perrault (8), (unassisted), 13:07

    Third Period
    WSH Brouwer (15), (unassisted), 5:53

    TB Stamkos (33), (St. Louis, Garon), 2:45

    Steven Stamkos and Pavel Kubina were the game's first and third stars.

    Make no mistake about it, Washington's third goal was a completely blown call. The holding on Matt Gilroy that led to Brouwer's unassisted goal was a joke. I'd be more outraged were it not for the craft Russian leg sweep Vincent Lecavalier put on Roman Hamrlik to spring Marty for the Lightning's second goal. Still, for the refs to blow that call it plain view was pretty shocking.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 hit in 5:08.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and 3 shots and 1 hit in 13:00. Played very well coming off the shelf.

    Full slate today:

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 2 @ SaiPa 1 SO
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 34/35, 0.92 GAA, .971 sv%
    Season totals: 25 GP, 17-6-0, 6 SO, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

    Riku Helenius made 34 saves and was named the game's first star in JYP's 2-1 win over SaiPa. Helenius' rise has gradually gone, over the course of the season, from a cute story, to a bit of a phenomenon, to now something that bears serious consideration. No one expected him to keep posting shutouts in 40% of his starts, but he's now consistently winning games and only allowing 1-2 goals in the process. He leads the SM-liiga now in GAA and save percentage and he's still tied for the lead in shutouts. For an organization so starved for goaltending as the Lightning's, they can't afford to ignore #31 for JYP. JYP is now off until Tuesday, February 14, when they'll play TPS. They've now climbed into 4th on the SM-liiga table. The Sweden Hockey Games leg of the Euro Hockey Tour will be played February 9-12.

    Vasily Koshechkin spelled starter Vadim Tarasov 8:42 into the second period and allowed 1 goal on 15 shots in Cherepovets' 4-2 loss to Minsk. Ex-Devils first rounder Nicklas Bergfors had a helper in the match for Cherepovets. Cherepovets faces Poprad on Thursday.

    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 43 GP, 13-6-19, +4, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju scored the shootout winner to lift Lulea to a 1-0 win over HV 71. Remember, shootout winners count as goals in the stat column in Sweden. Lulea draws Vaxjo on Thursday. Lulea has climbed to 2nd place in the Elitserien, just 1 point back of Skelleftea.
