    All good things...


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 5 goals on 28 shots for the loss, snapping his long, 5 game winning streak.

    First Period
    HER Aucoin, (7) (Bourque, Micflikier), 9:23 (PP)
    HER Micflikier, (10) (Aucoin, Mink), 9:54 (PP)
    NOR Conacher, (16) (Smith, Oberg), 11:23
    HER Aucoin, (8) (Micflikier, Bourque), 14:08 (PP)
    HER Bourque, (13) (Aucoin, Micflikier), 18:28

    Second Period
    NOR Smith, (13) (Conacher, Barberio), 3:03 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (10) (Conacher, Labrie), 16:58

    Third Period
    HER Kundratek, (4) (Bourque, Wellar), 4:46
    HER Bourque, (14) (Mink), 17:52 (EN)

    Norfolk may have the best offensive depth in the league, but between Aucoin and Bourque, the Bears probably have the two best offensive players in the AHL. Solving Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are the two biggest challenges Norfolk needs to resolve this year, and they need to do it next weekend when they have 2 games against Hershey and 1 against the Pens. Doing well in those 3 games could give the Admirals the gift of a division lead going into the holiday break. Losing those games will be like receiving a big lump of coal. With the Pens idle, Hershey's win puts the East Division back at a 3 team tie.

    Elmira took game three of their three-game set with Florida to win the series 2-1. The ‘Blades scored first, then watched as the Jackals scored four straight goals before Florida scored with under two minutes to go to give the game its final score. At least it was Teddy Bear Toss night in southwest Florida so there was some good to come out of the game. Nagle has alternated wins and losses in his last six matches.

    Complete domination.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 goals on 17 shots for the victory, snapping a personal 2 game losing streak in which he had allowed 10 goals. His save percentage is still a troubling .890, but tonight's win at least saved him the indignity of falling to a .500 record.

    First Period
    NOR Smith, (12) (Oberg, Kostka), 16:55 (PP)
    BNG Klinkhammer, (4) (Da Costa, Cannone), 18:41 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Conacher, (14) (Smith, Labrie), 8:22
    NOR Johnson, (9) (Ashton, Barberio), 17:14

    Third Period
    BNG Hoffman, (6) (Cannone, Parrish), 8:58 (PP)
    NOR Conacher, (15) (Labrie, Smith), 10:08
    NOR Wyman, (5) , 18:46 (EN/SH)

    Trevor Smith and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Smith (pictured) leaps into a tie with TJ Hensick of Peoria for 3rd in the league at 31 points, with Hensick still in action in his game tonight. Conacher is 2 points back in 5th and leading all AHL rookies.

    Norfolk outshot Binghamton a stunning 42-17 to complete the weekend sweep of the Senators. With Hershey falling to the Penguins tonight, it's now a two-way tie between Norfolk and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for first place in the East Division at 33 points. Norfolk will try to put some more distance between themselves and Hershey tomorrow at Giant Center in Hershey.

    The AHL East Division and West Division are the only 2 in the league with 3 teams above a .600 points percentage so far this year.

    More shots, please.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 4 goals on 31 shots for the loss, but it could've been a lot worse without him.

    First Period
    TB Shannon (2), (Moore, Hedman), 11:52

    Second Period
    PHI Briere (9), (Simmonds), 2:38
    PHI Jagr (10), (Giroux, Hartnell), 3:12
    PHI Simmonds (7), (Giroux, Timonen)(PP), 14:49

    Third Period
    TB Lecavalier (11), (Bergeron, Malone)(PP), 0:55
    PHI Carle (4), (Briere, Van Riemsdyk)(PP), 4:55
    PHI Hartnell (14), (Jagr)(EN), 19:32

    This was a closer game than it appeared on the scoreboard, as Simmonds' power play goal was really a bit of poor luck. That said, the Lightning routinely have been held to extremely poor shot totals this year. You can't win a lot of games getting held to around 20 shots (19 tonight) no matter how skilled you are. At this time last season, the Lightning coaching staff preached a style that had them pressing for 35-40 shots a game as a goal. It's a bizarre thing that a team that was coached to that philosophy struggles so much to get shots on goal now. The Lightning need to recognize that their skill level is even lower with Martin St. Louis out and they must get shots on goal and get some meat and potatoes goals if they're going to get back to winning games without him.

    Blair Jones had 3 hits in 5:52.

    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.

    Miami RedHawks 5 @ No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes 3

    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
    Season totals: 16 GP, 0-4-4, +4, 29 PIM

    The Broncos are now unbeaten in four games. Witkowski picked up an assist, his first point in six games.

    Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks 2 @ No. 19 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 1 (OT)

    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
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-15, +3, 6 PIM

    Quinnipiac forward Jeremy Langlois had two goals for the Bobcats. With Peca's two helpers he has three points in his last two games.

    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.
