    Hockey East
    Providence 3 @ No.10 Massachusetts 2
    D John Wessbecker, UMASS: Did not play (undisclosed injury)

    CCHA
    No.8 Notre Dame 2 @ No.1 Michigan 3
    D Kevin Quick, UM: 0-0-0, E, 0 shot on goal

    In an exciting game aired on CSTV, Michigan erased a 2-0 deficit against No.8 Notre Dame and earned a last minute win when Ottawa Senators third rounder (2007) Louie Caporusso banged in a loose puck from the side of the net with 20 seconds left. The goal came shortly after an offensive zone faceoff, which featured Kevin Quick on the right point. The Irish won the faceoff, but the Wolverine forecheck caused a turnover and an eventual goal.

    Quick was on the ice for the Irish’s first goal, so he ended up even for the game. He had a few nice rushes and seems to be playing with a lot of confidence.

    Michigan was swept 3-0 by Notre Dame last year.

    I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Cam Neely? Andre Roy? They're the same guy.

    TB-3
    PIT-0

    Johan Holmqvist stopped 27 of 27 shots faced to post the first shutout by any Lightning goaltender this season. He was excellent, and seems to be settling nicely into the Lightning's new tandem arrangement, alternating starts with Karri Ramo.

    First Period
    Tampa Bay 4:34, Kyle Wanvig 1 (Andre Roy, Chris Gratton)
    Tampa Bay 10:51, Chris Gratton 7 (Andre Roy, Shane O'Brien)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    Tampa Bay 5:32, Andre Roy 4 (Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis)

    For anyone thinking that the Lightning had given up, were tuning out their coach, were already making tee times etc etc after the Colorado game, tonight was an object lesson in the heart and pride that still exists in that Lightning locker room. This season may very well be a wash, but the Lightning cannot allow bad habits to sink in and they must continue to compete night in and night out, regardless of what the standings say.

    On the other side of the rink, can you imagine a worse scenario for Pittsburgh? Not only do you get shutout by Johan Holmqvist and drop your 7th straight game on home ice to the Lightning, but you lose your superstar to a high ankle sprain in the process? Ouch. They have to be wishing they had never taken the ice tonight.

    Mathieu Darche was even in 8:25 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots. Tonight was his 40th game of the season, meaning he will graduate to NHLer by this site's criteria if he plays against Ottawa. Congratulations will definitely be in order.

    Another late comeback bid falls short.

    WBS-3
    NOR-1

    Marc Denis allowed 3 goals on 30 shots in the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    WBS McLean, (12) (Engelland, Brent), 2:44
    WBS Brent, (7) (McLean, Minard), 12:33

    Third Period
    NOR Smolenak, (1) (Szczechura, Scalzo), 16:16
    WBS McLean, (13) , 18:32 (PP)

    Radek Smolenak was named third star of the game after scoring his 1st AHL goal. It will be a huge boon to this organization if, after a year and a half of wasted potential, Smolenak really used this second half as a springboard into a critical third professional season.

    Paul Szczechura now has 1 goal and 2 points in his first two games in Norfolk.

    Johan Harju had 2 goals and was ejected for a fight with Johan Erkgards late in Lulea's 7-2 trouncing of Frarjestads. The goals were Harju's 14th and 15th of the season in 33 games played and moved him back into the top 10 in the Elitserien in goals.

    Ads blow a two goal lead.

    BRI-3
    NOR-2

    Marc Denis allowed 3 goals on 23 shots in the loss in a game where the Admirals outshot Bridgeport 35-23.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Klinkhammer, (6) (Kvapil, Kearns), 4:48
    NOR Szczechura, (3) (Rogers, Milley), 6:24
    BRI Tambellini, (23) (Okposo), 14:10
    BRI Walter, (12) (Tambellini, Nielsen), 19:59 (PP)

    Third Period
    BRI Tambellini, (24) (Okposo, Nielsen), 3:31

    Good to see Marek Kvapil get back on the scoresheet after returning from Mississippi.

    Newcomer Paul Szczechura had a goal and was named second star of the game while Junior Lessard finished -1 with 4 shots on goal, which was tied for the team high.

    Recently the Ads have been outshooting their opposition and losing 1 goal heartbreakers. You get the feeling if they find a way to pull one or two of these out the floodgates might open and they'll get on a run, at least at home where they have the travel advantage.

    After yielding the nets to Morgan Cey for a game, Ryan Munce was back between the pipes Tuesday night and backstopped the Sea Wolves to a 34 save 2-1 victory against the best team in the ECHL. For his stellar play in net against the Wildcatters, Munce earned First Star honors.

    Munce is now 10-2 with a 1.97 GAA and 0.948 SV% on the season, leading the entire ECHL in both GAA and SV%. So far in the month of January 2008, Munce is an extraterrestrial 6-0 with a 1.31 GAA and 0.962 SV%. Hard to believe Munce not getting selected to the ECHL All-star game with these kind of numbers.

    Mike Egener made his season debut tonight for the Wolves, but was held off the scoresheet.
