    Big win. Big, big win.

    TB-5 (OT)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the victory. The stat line isn't a beauty, but his first period was superlative to give the Lightning a chance.

    First Period

    Second Period
    TB Stamkos (7), (Malone, Bergeron), 0:15
    CHI Sharp (4), (Toews, Kane)(PP), 1:05
    TB Connolly (2), (St. Louis, Lecavalier), 4:55
    CHI Hossa (7), (Kane, Montador), 6:17
    CHI Carcillo (1), (unassisted), 7:10
    CHI Sharp (5), (Kane, Hossa), 7:22
    TB Stamkos (8), (Purcell), 11:45
    TB Stamkos (9), (St. Louis, Malone)(PP), 19:27

    Third Period

    TB Lecavalier (6), (St. Louis, Bergeron), 4:06

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    What a roller coaster. Chicago should be considered a legitimate contender to come out of the West this year, and they looked like they totally outclassed the Lightning in the first period in terms of speed and puck possession. It was a bit of a clinic, with the saving grace being Dwayne Roloson's play.

    The Lightning started to take some baby steps in the second period, getting a couple of 1 goal leads, but then you had some mistakes, particularly a M.A. Bergeron turnover at the point that led to Daniel Carcillo's breakaway goal. 3 goals very quickly by Chicago and the Lightning looked like dead meat. Then Steven Stamkos reminded the NHL why he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with Crosby and Ovechkin. He bodied a defender to force a turnover that led to his second goal, and then Marty St. Louis made a magical read and pass to set Stammer for an easy one-timer goal for the hat trick. Stammer was absolutely dominant in the third period, too, and could've had 6-7 goals with a little luck. Amazing. The Hawks should be glad he got drafted by an Eastern Conference team because he absolutely owns Chicago when he plays them.

    It was a strong third period on the forecheck for the Lightning, with just a few scary moments against Chicago's top line. And then, in overtime, M.A. Bergeron redeemed himself with a great play to steal the puck in the offensive zone, roll over his wrists on a tough pass that Marty St. Louis made a great pick on, and then the easy 2 on 1 conversion down low by Lecavalier. That play was like stealing.

    The game, as a whole, is not something you want to do every night. The defensive sloppiness and a 3 quick goal scenario is something that can't keep happening. But, when you have your best player show how dominant he can be and when you defeat a team that is a legitimate Cup contender, that works wonders for a team's confidence. It certainly feels better than sitting at .500 after getting fed their helmets by the Canes.

    Brett Connolly had a goal and 2 penalty minutes with 2 shots in 13:37.

    Florida Everblades 1 @ South Carolina Stingrays 4

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: 0-0-0, -3, 5 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 4-2-6, +1, 8 PIM
    RW Philip-Michael Devos, FLA: 0-0-0, -2, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 4-5-9, -1, 2 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Loss, 11 saves on 15 shots
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 2-4-0, 4.22 GAA, .840 sv%, 0 SO

    Florida (2-6-0-1) lost their fourth straight game, falling to South Carolina 4-1 despite limiting the Stingrays to 15 shots. The ‘Blades only allowed two shots in the third period – and South Carolina scored on both of them. Pat Nagle’s save percentage fell below .850 again. With John Muse being returned to Florida from Charlotte, Nagle may be watching a lot more games. Alex Hutchings was a team-worst minus-3 for Florida and saw his three-game point streak snapped.

    KHL (Russia)
    Poprad 5 @ Cherepovets 0
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 18/22, 8.17 GAA, .818 sv%
    Season totals: 15 GP, 7-6-0, 1 SO, 2.84 GAA, .914 sv%

    That's back-to-back dismal performances for Vasily Koshechkin, as Cherepovets was fed their hats by Slovakian club Poprad today, 5-0. Despite Poprad's offensive onslaught, ex-Bolt Prospect Vladimir Mihalik was scoreless in the match. He did manage a couple of minors for high sticking and delay of game, though. Cherepovets will try to right the ship against Dynamo Minsk on Friday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Spartak Jr. 0 @ CSKA Jr. 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., 0-2-2, +2, 12 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 13 GP, 11-15-26, +6, 20 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov had secondary helpers on both goals by Nikita Gusev in CSKA Jr.'s 2-0 win over Spartak Jr. He also got a 2+10 for a hit to the head late in the third period. CSKA Jr. rematches Spartak Jr. on Thursday, with or without their talented offensive dynamo.

    Bolt Prospects would like to acknowledge one monster who has been mashing his way all through October. Some Bolt Prospects readers felt tricked this past week when we didn't name this prospect the Player of the Week, but we were holding a treat in reserve. True, there were several worthy honorable mentions who scared up some excitement along the way. There was the wolf man, Brett Connolly, who came out of nowhere to crack the Lightning's NHL roster. There was the evil genius, Mark Barberio, and his stylish 2 goals and 11 points in 10 games. And, there was the leprechaun, Matthew Peca, who got his own pot o' gold today when he was named the ECAC's Rookie of the Month.

    But the nail in the coffin came when the AHL gave a certain power forward (sort of a pale Incredible Hulk) a minor award (hardly worth mention in the same breath as Bolt Prospects' Prospect of the Month).

    (Norfolk Admirals press release) The American Hockey League announced today that Norfolk Admirals right wing Carter Ashton has been named the Reebok/AHL Rookie of the Month for October. Ashton scored a league-leading nine goals and paced all AHL rookies with 13 points in 10 games for Norfolk as the Admirals raced out to a 7-2-0-1 start.

    Ashton began his first full professional season with a two-goal effort, including the overtime winner, in a 6-5 victory over Charlotte on Oct. 7. He notched a goal and an assist each on Oct. 8 vs. Charlotte and Oct. 21 vs. Binghamton, and authored four multiple-point performances among his first five games of the season. Ashton then scored a goal in four straight games to finish October, netting markers on Oct. 23 at Charlotte, Oct. 26 at Adirondack, Oct. 28 at Providence and Oct. 29 at Syracuse.
