    That's all?


    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TB Lecavalier (15), (Moore, Brewer), 3:24

    Second Period
    MTL Blunden (1), (Gill, Darche), 5:44
    MTL Pacioretty (12), (Subban), 7:17

    Third Period
    MTL Cole (17), (Desharnais, Pacioretty)(PP), 19:43

    Vincent Lecavalier was named the game's third star.

    The Lightning knew this was a make-or-break road trip and after going 0-for-3 on this swing through Canada, it looks like the season may be broken. They're now 9 points out of 8th place, and while they have a ton of home games coming up, the fact is they need to be well above .500 on the road the rest of the way too to make up the gap. Getting swept on road trips through Ontario and Quebec is only going to guarantee a top-10 pick at the draft at this point.

    New acquisition Brendan Mikkelson did not suit up for the Lightning.

    Brett Connolly was +1 with 2 shots in 12:13 in his return from the Canadian junior team.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 1 hit in 3:41 in his NHL debut. Congratulation to Pierre-Cedric for making it to the show.

    Tri-City Storm 1 @ Green Bay Gamblers 8

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 14 saves on 18 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 8 GP, 3-5-0, 3.22 GAA, .909 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Ouch. This was a big game for Wilcox, who was coming off a 34-save shutout and facing the team that traded him just a few weeks ago. Wilcox gave up two in the first period, then two quick ones early in the third to take the loss. He was pulled in favor of backup Phoenix Copley.


    Gatineau Olympiques 1 @ Moncton Wildcats 5

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 2-16-18, -1, 27 PIM

    Janosik played his first game back with the Olympiques after serving as an alternate captain for Team Slovakia in the U20 World Junior Championships. Janosik, who led the team with six shots on goal Friday, and his team were throttled by a Moncton club who is in the process of selling off their most valuable pieces.

    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Milan (pictured) played his second game in a Tigres uniform and earned his first point for Victoriaville in a 3-2 shootout win. Hopefully Milan, who has struggled this year offensively, uses this fresh start to get untracked.


    London Knights 4 @ Sudbury Wolves 1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, +1, 4 PIM (roughing, tripping)
    Season Totals: 35 GP, 17-27-44, +13, 32 PIM

    Namestnikov failed to register a point a game after he had four assists in a win over the Soo. Recently acquired center Gregg McKegg (Maple Leafs) had a goal and an assist for London. The Knights are stacked and poised for a long playoff run.

    Season Totals: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

The Everblades missed a chance to take over first place in the South Division, instead allowing Gwinnet to push their lead to two points over second-place Florida. Alex Hutchings remains out with an upper-body injury. He hasn’t played since November 12.

    NOR-4 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 5 goals on 39 shots in an epic collapse over the final 12 and a half minutes of regulation and overtime. He's got to be better in situations where things are snowballing like they did tonight. Got to.

    First Period
    NOR Barberio, (4) (Fornataro, Angelidis), 9:04
    NOR Ashton, (15) (Devos, Panik), 19:51

    Second Period
    NOR Smith, (16) (Barberio, Panik), 7:19 (PP)
    NOR Oberg, (1) (Gudas, Johnson), 12:47

    Third Period
    ALB Palmieri, (3) (Zajac, Hoeffel), 7:47
    ALB Hoeffel, (3) (Mills, Burlon), 10:06
    ALB Anderson, (6) (Veilleux, Gelinas), 10:59
    ALB Gelinas, (6) (Mills), 19:34

    ALB Whitney, (8) (Harrold, Anderson), 3:31 (PP)

    Mark Barberio was the game's second star. He now has 31 points in 33 games to nearly equal the 33 points he posted in 68 games last year as a rookie. That's due partly because he's nearly doubled his amount of shots on goal per game. Last season he had 103 shots on goal all season. He has 95 so far this year. Pucks on net mean rebounds and they mean getting the puck down low in the zone in potentially advantageous positions.

    Richard Panik extends the Panik Attack to 3 games. Tonight was his second multi-point game as a pro. The hope is that the adjustment period is starting to fade and he has a really strong second half of the season to set himself up well for 2012-2013.

    A 3 goal lead in the third period should be a death sentence in pro hockey for the team that's down. A 4 goal lead with under 13 minutes left absolutely should be 999 out of 1,000 times. And when that 1 in 1,000 times happens to you as the losing club, it stings. Yes, Norfolk was short 2 forwards tonight and having to play d-men up front, but for a 4-0 lead to evaporate in a touch over 12 minutes is unbelievable.

    Fortunately, Hershey also lost tonight in overtime in the big outdoor game in Philly against the Phantoms, so the Admirals remain tied for the division lead. But, they'll have to show a lot of resiliency tomorrow against the Devils to regain some of the pride they had ripped from them tonight.

    Bronze Medal Game
    Canada 4 @ Finland 0
    Brett Connolly, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Tournament totals: 6 GP, 5-1-6, +4, 4 PIM

    Coyotes first rounder Mark Visentin stopped all 27 shots he faced to lead Canada to the Bronze Medal in their 4-0 win over Finland. Brett Connolly was held off the scoresheet for the first time in the tournament, but was named one of Canada's three best players in the tournament as selected by the coaches. He'll head back east now to rejoin the Lightning.

    Gold Medal Game
    Sweden 1 @ Russia 0 (OT)
    Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Tournament totals: 7 GP, 2-5-7, +4, 2 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Tournament totals: 7 GP, 2-3-5, +7, 6 PIM

    Ottawa first rounder Mika Zibanejad scored an overtime breakaway goal to earn Sweden its first Gold Medal in 31 years at the U20 World Junior Championships. Lulea netminder Johan Gustafsson, a Wild 6th rounder and a teammate of overage Lightning prospect Johan Harju, made 16 stops for the shutout. Draft eligible Andrei Makarov, who currently plays for Saskatoon in the WHL, stopped an amazing 57 of 58 shots in defeat. Lightning prospects Nikita Kucherov and Nikita Nesterov will be eligible to return next season for Team Russia in Ufa at next year's tournament. Nesterov finished tied for 3rd amongst defensemen in scoring and tied for 6th in plus/minus.

    And just like that, all the gains of the homestand slid away.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 23 shots for the loss. It's a horrible feeling for a team to know they have to work like crazy to score goals and then the other team can come down and have a much easier time to get on the board because of the goaltending. It's morale-destroying, and Ottawa's third goal was awful. Unscreened long shot in a game where you're pressing for the tying goal down 1? Unacceptable.

    First Period
    OTT Spezza (15), (Greening, Gonchar), 10:36

    Second Period
    OTT Turris (1), (Alfredsson, Condra), 17:07

    Third Period
    TB Stamkos (28), (Lecavalier, Gilroy), 8:48
    OTT Smith (12), (Alfredsson, Foligno), 16:34
    OTT Alfredsson (13), (Turris)(EN), 19:07

    7 points out of 8th place and 2 games under .500, and the past half month has been a net zero. Treading water.

    J.T. Wyman had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 5:32, but left the game with an upper body injury.

    Blair Jones had 1 shot and 2 hits in 9:02. 4 games until his 82nd NHL game, and graduation from prospect status at long last.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    KalPa 4 @ JYP 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 17 GP, 11-6-0, 6 SO, 1.47 GAA, .934 sv%

    Riku Helenius did not dress for JYP's 4-0 defeat to KalPa. According to Finnish newspaper Iltalehti, he suffered a shoulder injury in JYP's last match which will not require surgery. JYP gets Tappara next on Tuesday.

    Skelleftea 2 @ Lulea 3 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 34 GP, 12-6-18, +6, 10 PIM

    Johan Harju returned to the lineup after missing 1 game with a shoulder injury of his own and scored on 3 of 3 attempts in the shootout, including the winner, to lead Lulea to a 3-2 victory over Skelleftea. One of the little foibles of Swedish hockey is they count shootout winners as goals in their stats, so that's Harju's 12th of the season, tying him for 8th in the league in goals. So, the Swedes give their skaters too much credit and the Russians and Finns give their goaltenders too little for shootout exploits. Lulea gets MODO next on Saturday.
