    Ugly, but I'll take it, I suppose.

    TOR-1 (OT)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 41 shots for the victory. I honestly don't know why there isn't a goaltending controversy at this point.

    First Period

    Second Period
    TB 18:34, Lecavalier 2 (Ohlund)

    Third Period
    TOR 5:04, White 3 (Hagman, Beauchemin)(PP)

    TB 2:21, Malone 9 (Tanguay)

    It's lucky that A.) Nittymaki stood on his head again, and B.) Toronto is just awful enough to lose games like this even when they deserve to win. Allowing 41 shots to a team like the Leafs is a joke. Maybe the momentum and mojo the team will get from winning an overtime game will help them in the confidence department, but this is still a terrible Lightning team on the road.

    Steve Downie was +1 with 2 hits in 11:44.

    Drew Miller only played 4:09 in the game.

    Zenon Konopka had 1 hit and was 75% on draws in 4:52.

    James Wright played 13:25.

    Victor Hedman was +2 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 4 blocked shots in 25:46. He also had 4 PIMs, though.

    The Tick only needs two goals of support.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed just 1 goal on 26 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Craig, (7) (Karsums, Tokarski), 1:29
    MTB McCue, (1) (Maxwell, Salcido), 11:31

    Third Period
    NOR Bochenski, (7) (Lundin, Simek), 2:19 (PP)

    Tokarski and Ryan Craig were the game's first and third stars. Martins Karsums racked up his first point of the season in the game, finally.

    It may be as simple as this: the Lightning are just an awful road team.


    Mike Smith allowed 5 goals on 18 shots for the loss before giving way to Antero Nittymaki who allowed 1 goal on 13 shots the rest of the way.

    Montreal Junior @ Moncton Wildcats
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: Game canceled.
    Season Totals: 18 GP, 2-11-13, +3, 20 PIM

    Moncton has a slew of players out with injuries and several woke up Sunday ill with the flu leaving the Wildcats with only 11 healthy skaters. According to the Wildcats, “the team doctors for the Wildcats and the QMJHL discussed the situation and it was decided that in the best interest of both teams, game cancellation was the best alternative at this time.”


    Kingston Frontenacs 2 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 4
    RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    DeCoste (pictured) has points in two straight games. His second goal of the year tied the score at one for the Soo against the East Division leading Fronts.

    Belleville Bulls 4 @ Oshawa Generals 2
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 22 saves on 26 shots.
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 6-5-1-0, 3.58 GAA, .891 sv%, 1 SO

    Oshawa outshot Belleville 37-26, but Zador dropped his fourth straight decision. His 7 GAA (51 saves) loss to London on Friday snuck under the radar here at BoltProspects – probably a good thing.

    Cherepovets 4 @ Omsk 3 (SO)
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 10-7, 2 SO, 1.89 GAA, .912 sv%

    Ramo missed his second straight start for Omsk.

    The KHL now goes on break for the Karjala Cup tournament. Initital rosters for the tournament include former Lightning prospect Marek Kvapil on the Czech Republic's roster, former Lightning player Janne Niskala on Finland's roster, Lightning prospect Vasily Koshechkin on Russia's roster, and former Lightning player Jimmie Olvestad and current Lightning prospect Johan Harju on Sweden's roster.

    D Luke Witkowski , UWM: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (interference), 2 SOG
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 8 PIM

    The Broncos put up a good fight, but dropped both games of a home-and-home with MSU this weekend. The Spartans scored a shorthanded empty netter to give the game its final score.

    Niagara IceDogs 1 @ Barrie Colts 2
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

    C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 4-7-11, +13, 6 PIM

    Panik shot second in the shootout, but hit the post. It was the second straight shootout loss for the defending Memorial Cup champs, though they still lead the league in points at 13-3-0-3.


    Brandon Wheat Kings 5 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 4
    RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-3-3, +2, 4 PIM (hooking, roughing), *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 9-9-18, -5, 28 PIM

    Ashton (pictured) has a four game point streak in which he has eight points. Brandon scored the game winner with 13 seconds left in the game. Lethbridge remains in a tie for last in the Eastern Conference at 5-11-2-0.

    Khabarovsk 3 @ Kazan 6
    Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 6-1-7, -3, 10 PIM

    The elder Kazionov has really started to hit his stride in the past couple of weeks, potting his sixth goal of the season today against Khabarovsk.

    Novosibirsk 3 @ Togliatti 2 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Togliatti, Loss, 18/20, 1.85 GAA, .900 sv%
    Season totals: 20 GP, 7-11, 2 SO, 2.15 GAA, .920 sv%

    Koshechkin was bested by 2 of 3 shooters in the penalty shot session for the shootout loss. Sounds like a Lightning prospect.

    Ekaterinburg 3 @ Spartak Moscow 4 (OT)
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, DNP
    Season totals: 19 GP, 1-2-3, -5, 8 PIM

    Kazionov missed his second straight match for Ekaterinburg.

    Niitty steals a point, and the Lightning shooters continue to make fools of themselves in the shootout.

    TB-1 (SO)

    Antero Niittymaki was lights out tonight, stopping 37 of 38 before going 3 for 4 in the shootout session for the shootout loss. He deserved a lot better from the guys in front of him.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NJ 0:50, Zajac 6 (Fraser)

    Third Period
    TB 4:34, Stamkos 10 (St. Louis, Malone)


    NJ- Clarkson
    TB- NONE

    The Lightning absolutely sleepwalked through the first two periods of the game, with the exception perhaps of the final five minutes of the first period. It was terrible. Shots were 28-9 after 40 minutes, for New Jersey. Without Nittymaki, this game would have easily been a blowout. I don't get the inconsistency from this Lightning team from game to game, period to period, and situation to situation. And as far as the shootouts go, if I were Tocchet I'd ban dekes from the star players. Tell them to shoot. At least force the goaltenders to make a save.

    Steve Downie had 5 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 4 hits in 11:08.

    Drew Miller was -1 in 8:51.

    Zenon Konopka had 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and was 50% on draws in 11:04.

    James Wright had 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 14:20.

    Victor Hedman was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 26:24. I'm going to reiterate my request from the last game: I'd like to see him get more shots, particularly on the power play. They need to get him off this pass-first mentality. The scouting report from the Swedish Elitserien is that Victor possesses a world class one-timer. Nothing else is working on the PP (an ugly 0-for-3 tonight). Try a different weapon.

    Harvard Crimson 5 @ Dartmouth Big Green 3
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 2-1-3, +2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*

    Harvard’s regular and conference season debut was a good one for both the team and Killorn. The sophomore scored twice and added an assist in the second period to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead. His assist came on a goal by Canadien’s first rounder Louis Leblanc.

    No.10 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ Maine Black Bears 4
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (hitting from behind), 1 SOG
    Season totals: 5 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM

    Marshall scored his second career goal and first of the season, but No.10 Vermont struggled overall against the Black Bears in Orono. Marshall’s goal came on a slap shot from the right circle that beat the goalie through his five-hole.

    Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ No.20 Michigan State Spartans 2
    D Luke Witkowski , UWM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (high sticking)
    Season totals: 5 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 6 PIM

    Witkowski’s first collegiate point came on the power play. He fired a slap shot that was saved, but the Broncos scored on the rebound to make the score 2-1 in the third period.
