    It's a Panik attack!


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the win.

    First Period

    Second Period
    PRO Hennessy, (6) (Arniel, Bartkowski), 11:35
    NOR Labrie, (5) (Gudas, Angelidis), 16:32

    Third Period
    NOR Panik, (3) (Wright, Palat), 9:59
    NOR Wright, (1) (Panik, Palat), 12:40
    PRO Cunningham, (2) (Bartkowski, Arniel), 19:46

    Tokarski, Richard Panik (pictured), and James Wright were the game's three stars.

    As I mentioned after last night's game, it's hard to beat a team on back-to-back nights when you really beat them badly on the first night. There's a tendency to come out complacent while they come out flying because they don't want to be embarrassed again. That happened tonight, to the tune of a 13-7 shot advantage for the Bruins that was much wider the first 10-15 minutes of play, but Tokarski held the game close and allowed the Admirals to gain their legs.

    In the third period, the game was broken open by the line of Palat/Wright/Panik. It's hard to believe that was just Wright's first goal of the season, but perhaps now he has a stable line to run on. He'd be the "Oh Canada!" in the Czech-Oh-Slovakia line.

    Norfolk is 2 points back of the Penguins in 2nd place in the East Division and 4th overall in the Eastern Conference. They draw the Pens in a key divisional showdown on Tuesday in Norfolk.

    We might call this home-and-home Spanks-giving weekend for the Lightning to their down-state, little-sister rivals.


    Mathieu Garon made 24 saves on 25 shots for the victory. He would've had the shutout were it not for a puckhandling gaffe in garbage time. Still, we might be able to say we're officially in the window of another Mathieu Garon hot-streak. I can't recall when the Lightning ever had 2 goaltenders this streaky on their roster.

    First Period
    TB St. Louis (6), (Connolly, Clark), 2:07

    Second Period
    TB Pyatt (1), (Bergeron), 3:49
    TB Stamkos (13), (Purcell, Tyrell), 6:02
    TB Malone (5), (Stamkos), 10:35

    Third Period
    FLA Matthias (3), (Skille), 17:43
    TB Stamkos (14), (unassisted), 19:01

    Steven Stamkos, Nate Thompson, and Martin St. Louis were the game's three stars. I loved that Stamkos added the 5th goal of the night for the punctuation mark to make sure there would be no silver lining for Florida. I'm a big believer in going out hard to get the first goal and the last goal, and typically what happens in between will take care of itself.

    Unsung heroes were Tom Pyatt and Dana Tyrell. I was a little shocked that was only Pyatt's first goal, because he's dangerous on the forecheck almost every time out. And, Dana Tyrell is in full on junkyard dog mode right now. That third goal of the night scored by Stamkos was largely because Tyrell would not be knocked off the puck in the corner on the forecheck.

    It's hard to know if this weekend is a turning point for this season, but I know Panther Nation (all three of them) were heading into this weekend very confident and ready to spread dirt on the 2011-2012 edition of the Lightning's grave. So, to scratch out a road win last night and then smack the taste out of the Panthers' mouths tonight was a major accomplishment, reaffirming the theological certainty that God still hates Panthers fans (especially Bill Lindsay).

    Brett Connolly had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 12:34. He's typically good for one really dangerous offensive shift a game, but he had two tonight, and I suspect that in the second half of the season he may have a spike in production similar to the second half of Stamkos' rookie season. Granted, Connolly's a year older than Steven was, but with Connolly losing his draft year to a hip injury, experience-wise he's at about the same point at 19 as Stammer was at 17-18.

    Dominant. Dominant. Dominant. Dominant.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 18 shots for the victory. If you look up the definition of "light work" you'll see the box score of Tokarski's first two periods in this game. Providence only managed 8 shots (1 every 5 minutes!) in the first two frames. Living the dream.

    First Period
    NOR Jones, (1) (Fornataro, Conacher), 7:34 (PP)
    PRO Tardif, (7) (Camper, Warsofsky), 11:16 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Palat, (1) (Labrie, Vernace), 9:41
    NOR Labrie, (4) (Angelidis, Cote), 18:19

    Third Period
    NOR Gudas, (4) (Smith), 9:00
    NOR Wyman, (4) , 18:30 (EN/SH)

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie (Real Canadian Hero), Blair Jones, and Ondrej Palat were the game's three stars.

    Labrie (pictured) now has 13 points in 19 games and a very nice +13 rating to go with it. There are corpses with better first step acceleration than Labrie, but this guy works his tail off and he contributes in so many different ways.

    For Jones and Palat, it's an interesting dichotomy between the return of the Admirals' all-time leading scorer from what may be his last shot in Tampa Bay and the young rookie scoring his first professional goal and just trying to get ice time to climb the ladder. I'm not surprised in the slightest that Jones immediately scored in this game, though. Heck, I wouldn't be shocked if Blair led Norfolk on a very deep playoff run, now, either.

    Norfolk outshot Providence by a ridiculous 44-18 margin. Providence may be questioning why they bothered to get off the bus, although the Admirals should recognize by now that beating this team again tomorrow night will be difficult. They'll come out playing with a fire lit under them to try not to get embarrassed again, and there will be a tendency toward complacency that the Admirals will need to fight off.

    Back to the business of winning.

    FLA-1 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon had a very solid 23 saves on 24 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    FLA Fleischmann (10), (Weiss), 12:38

    Third Period
    TB Lecavalier (10), (St. Louis), 8:59

    TB Stamkos (12), (St. Louis, Bergeron)(PP), 2:29

    Steven Stamkos and Mathieu Garon were the game's first and second stars. Vincent Lecavalier was robbed, because I thought he was the best player on the ice tonight. He's now at 10 goals in 21 games, which is starting to quietly creep into the range of a 40 goal pace. If he keeps scoring, and everything lines up around him like it probably will (ie, Marty starts scoring again) this team will have one of the best offenses in the league. I know that's bizarre to say on a night where they struggled just to get it to 1-1 to go to overtime, but I have faith that guys like St. Louis will surely get their goals. Vinny's more of a question mark in recent years, and he's scoring right now.

    I'd never move Stamkos out of that left wing circle on the PP. His decision making in other alignments can sometimes be downright awful, but he's diabolical from that spot, and he'd be even more so with a righty shot manning the center point who could bring it hard enough to force the opposing PK to respect him. The Lightning haven't had that guy since Kurtis Foster left town, though, and I wish they'd find one, but they're painfully rare. You have to draft them when you get the opportunity (hint, hint).

    Dana Tyrell with a very productive 10:36. His chemistry with Nate Thompson was immediately in evidence. He looked good. Looked like an NHLer, whereas Blair Jones didn't always have that appearance. He may make Yzerman look foolish for ever having sent him down to Norfolk to start the year.

    Brett Connolly had 1 shot and 2 hits in 13:50. He had a nice play where he pulled up along the right wing boards and made a nice diagonal seam pass through the back door to Brett Clark that was promptly squandered. He looked good, though.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 1 @ Jokerit 0 (SO)
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 26/26, SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 12 GP, 7-5-0, 5 SO, 1.42 GAA, .937 sv%

    12 starts, 5 shutouts. 42% of the time JYP has started Riku Helenius (pictured) this season, he's pitched an 0-fer. In today's shutout, Helenius ran the table with 26 saves in regulation and overtime before slamming the door on every single Jokerit attempt in the shootout. JYP's shootout goal by Antti Jaatinen ended up being the only time the goal light was turned on all night for either club. Helenius grabbed second star honors for his efforts, and JYP moves on to face KalPa on Tuesday. At what point does Helenius start playing his way back into the conversation as a legitimate NHL prospect for the Lightning? It would be the greatest Bolt Prospects story ever.

    KHL (Russia):
    From 11-24-11
    Chelyabinsk 4 @ Dynamo Minsk 2
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 6-9-15, +12, 20 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov earned a post-Super Series callup to the KHL side and was scoreless in Chelyabinsk's 4-2 win over Minsk. He played 8:09 in the match and took a minor for high sticking in the first period. The d-man had played very limited minutes in one other KHL game earlier this year. Chelyabinsk's big club plays Chekhov next on Saturday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Astana Jr. 3 @ CSKA Jr. 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., DNP
    Season totals (MHL): 14 GP, 13-15-28, +8, 28 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Despite 2 late goals, CSKA Jr. fell short 3-2 to Astana Jr. Nikita Kucherov did not dress for CSKA Jr. They will rematch on Saturday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 3 @ HV 71 1
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 9-4-13, +4, 8 PIM

    Lulea starter Johan Gustavsson stopped 21 of 22 shots he faces to lead his club to a 3-1 win over HV 71. Lulea faces Timra on Tuesday. They're currently 4th on the Elitserien table.
