    Gwinnett Gladiators 3 @ Florida Everblades 4 (OT)

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 30 saves on 33 shots
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 6-5-0, 3.14 GAA, .894 sv%, 1 SO

    For the second straight night the Everblades got an overtime goal to top the Gladiators. This time it was Florida leading scorer David Rutherford (pictured), who scored his 10th goal of the season. His ninth opened the game. Rutherford was a teammate of Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski with the Spokane Chiefs from 2006 to 2008 and won a Memorial Cup with Tokarski and Tyler Johnson in 2008.

    Nagle notched his first professional point in the game, an assist in the second period.

    The News-Press has the description:

    "The Everblades extended the lead early in the second period on a heads up play by goalie Pat Nagle. While Gwinnett was in the midst of a line change, Nagle quickly moved the puck to the far blue line to Matt Beca. Beca charged into the zone on the right wing side and fired a shot which was redirected into the net by Rylan Galiardi."

    Norfolk property Philip-Michael Devos was called up to the Admirals before the game. He had an assist in his AHL debut.

    TJ leads the comeback.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 16 shots for the win. He's won 5 of his last 6 decisions now. That's a sign that it's time to ride him as the starter. He plays better with the heavier workload, and he's got a tendency to stay hot about a month to a month and a half at a time.

    First Period

    Second Period
    ADK Akeson, (7) (Eddy, Hamel), 5:01 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Johnson, (7) (Dimmen, Jackson), 12:46
    NOR Johnson, (8) (Ashton, Devos), 19:30

    Tyler Johnson (pictured) and Tokarski were the game's first and third stars. Johnson's quietly put together a nice 3 game point streak after snapping a 4 game pointless streak. He's been overshadowed by fellow rookies Conacher and Ashton, but on any other team he'd be getting a lot of plaudits for his production for a first year pro.

    Tonight's game marked the debut of new Admirals Evan Oberg and Mike Kostka, as well as Admirals contractee Philip-Michael Devos, who is a much better playmaker than former Miami Vice sidekick Philip Michael Thomas.

    Norfolk goes on the road to Binghamton on Friday. Their win tonight moves them back into a tie with the Penguins for first place in the AHL East Division.

    Box score from

  • 7 years 6 weeks ago

    The Lightning are setting themselves up for a very difficult second half.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TB Downie (3), (Stamkos, Purcell), 1:24

    Second Period
    NYR Fedotenko (4), (Richards, Callahan), 6:38
    TB Pyatt (2), (Tyrell, Thompson), 17:42

    Third Period
    NYR Anisimov (3), (Stepan), 6:16
    NYR Stepan (5), (Anisimov, McDonagh), 16:41
    NYR Richards (10), (McDonagh)(EN), 19:34

    Taylor Pyatt and Victor Hedman were the game's second and third stars.

    I wouldn't say the Lightning have played poorly during this 3 game losing streak. Tonight, the frustration is that the team led most of the game and saw a third period lead slip away into a loss late. The unfortunate thing is that it's digging a hole that will eventually the require the Lightning to put together some sizable winning streaks in the second half to make the post season. I guess the only silver lining is that the Caps aren't running away with the division this year, so that may still be in play in the second half. Still, the Lightning need to mind those details that will tip the balance and turn these close losses into wins.

    Brett Connolly had 1 hit in 9:54.

    Box score and extended statistics from

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    SaiPa 4 @ JYP 3
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Loss, 17/21, 4.15 GAA, .810 sv%
    Season totals: 14 GP, 8-6-0, 6 SO, 1.51 GAA, .931 sv%

    For once Riku didn't get a shutout. The netminder allowed an uncharacteristic 4 goals in JYP's 4-3 loss to SaiPa. Ex-Ducks farmhand Brian Salcido had 1 goal and 1 assist for SaiPa in the win. JYP plays the mighty Pelicans of Lahti next on Wednesday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Djurgardens 5 @ Lulea 4 (OT)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Season totals: 27 GP, 9-5-14, +4, 8 PIM

    When Ex-Lightning Prospects Attack! Defenseman Andreas Holmqvist had the overtime, game-winning, power play goal for Djurgardens in their 5-4 win over Lulea. Also on the board for Djurgardens was Josef Boumedienne with 2 assists and Jimmie Olvestad with 1 assist. It would have brought a tear to Rick Dudley's eye. Lulea gets Brynas next on Monday.

    In MHL (Russia Jr.) action, Nikita Kucherov was out of the lineup again today for CSKA Jr. in their 9-2 win over Orenburg. He was healthy when he left North America for the Subway Super Series, so still no word on if there in an injury or an illness. He is still listed on CSKA Jr.'s roster.

    USCHL poll used

  • 7 years 7 weeks ago



    Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He's dropped 4 of his last 5 and his save percentage has fallen to .890. Considering Dustin Tokarski has won 4 of his last 5, there's some separation between the two that is being established.

    First Period
    ADK McGinn, (3) (Holmstrom, Akeson), 5:49 (PP)
    NOR Ashton, (13) (Johnson, Jackson), 6:18

    Second Period
    ADK Holmstrom, (5) (Testwuide, Hamel), 7:23
    ADK McGinn, (4) , 13:02

    Third Period
    ADK Jancevski, (2) (Harper, Kessel), 4:09
    ADK Hamel, (10) , 14:50 (EN)

    At least Carter Ashton broke his 5 game scoreless streak.

    New Admirals Mike Kostka and Evan Oberg were not in the lineup for the Ads.

    After a strong debut for Tri-City, Wilcox has lost his last two games. The Storm and Force were deadlocked at 3 entering the third period and Wilcox’s Storm had a 4-3 lead at 7:25.

    Season Totals: 25 GP, 2-15-17, +3, 23 PIM

    Janosik was back in the lineup after missing Thursday’s game against Moncton. Unfortunately for the Olympiques, it didn’t mean a win. Gatineau has lost three straight games. Gabriel Desjardins (undrafted) had a hat trick for Halifax.

    The legend continues to grow...

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 6 @ Tappara 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 15/15, SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 13 GP, 8-5-0, 6 SO, 1.31 GAA, .940 sv%

    Today was the 3rd or 4th time this season I've gone to look at the results from Finland and said to myself, "No bleeping way!" Riku Helenius (pictured) continues to bend the rules of time and space, as he shut out Tappara today on 15 saves in JYP's 6-0 win. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had 1 goal and 3 points in the win. JYP plays SaiPa on Saturday.

    I get that JYP is a very good defensive team. I get that Riku is benefiting greatly from playing behind a very good defensive team. But, with 6 shutouts in 13 starts, and considering his tandem-mate Joni Myllykoski doesn't have any shutouts in 15 appearances, it's become something you can't dismiss anymore. At this stage, it's reminiscent of how people used to dismiss Martin Brodeur because he played behind a very strong defensive team in New Jersey. And, yet, it's not like you could have plugged any goaltender in there for New Jersey and won championships, and the guy now holds or is close to holding just about every goaltending record in the book.

    No, I'm not saying Riku Helenius, who at this time last year was getting routinely clobbered as a backup for Sodertalje in the Elitserien after being excommunicated from North America by the Lightning, is another Martin Brodeur. But, then again, doesn't it seem like he might be justifying the belief that the Lightning had when they drafted him 15th overall in 2006 that there might be something special about him?

    And, aren't you a little curious what he could do if the Lightning got him back to North America, too?
