    At what point are these guys going to feel embarrassed?


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 5 goals on 18 shots for the loss before being lifted for Mathieu Garon, who stopped all 16 he faced the rest of the way.

    First Period
    NYI Tavares (1), (unassisted), 0:36
    TB Stamkos (1), (Bergeron), 7:10
    NYI Moulson (1), (Tavares, Eaton), 9:28
    NYI Tavares (2), (Moulson, Parenteau), 15:15
    NYI Parenteau (1), (Tavares), 18:39

    Second Period
    NYI Grabner (1), (Okposo), 6:47

    Third Period

    Let me put this in very simple terms: in the last 3 games the Lightning have allowed 14 goals, and if you take Tomas Vokoun's softies out of the equation, they've only scored 4. They should have been -10 over the past 3 games, and that's terrible no matter how you slice it.

    You would think they would've shown more pride than to allow the team that they fought tooth and nail to 7 games in the Eastern Conference Finals to steamroll them in Boston. Nah. Their division nemesis who they battled in the playoffs and that has tormented them over the past 3-4 seasons? Nah. No pride displayed in either of those games. No forecheck. No focus. No attention to detail.

    Having one of the best coaches in the league I wouldn't have expected that kind of effort in back-to-back games, and I damned sure wouldn't have expected it in 3 straight games. But, 36 seconds in, the Lightning started the cycle all over again, and this time they do it against a perennial bottom feeder in the Islanders. Seriously, other than Downie, Ritola, Moore, and maybe one or two others, did anyone else on the team mentally show up for the first 30 minutes?

    Will they feel embarrassed now? I don't know. If I were GM, I'm not sure I'd wait for the team to decide to play focused, determined hockey. There are players like Carter Ashton and Tyler Johnson who already are playing focused, determined hockey in the minors. Why on earth they should be working for pennies on the dollar behind guys who should be -10 the past 3 games and have been stealing money from the organization. The complacency and the arrogance have to stop now.

    Brett Connolly was +1 with 3 shots and 1 blocked shot in 14:41. To finish a plus in a game you get clobbered 5-1 isn't shabby.

    Mattias Ritola was -2 with 2 penalty minutes, 8 shots, and 1 hit in 15:11. The +/- is ugly, but the effort he made on the forecheck and in the offensive third wasn't. I was impressed with how he played. If only a few more players on the team cared about more than their image.

    That's more like it. Riku Helenius made 18 stops to blank Lukko today in JYP's 4-0 victory. Former Lightning forward Eric Perrin led the way with 2 goals and 1 assist in the match. JYP faces Ilves Tampere on Friday and has now moved up to 9th in the 14 team league.

    Saint John Sea Dogs 1 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (cross-checking), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-6-6, -1, 9 PIM

    Another day, another assist for Janosik. Gatineau welcome Saint John's Jonathan Huberdeau back from the Florida Panthers by limiting him to one shot on goal, no points, and a -1 rating as the Olympiques beat the reigning Memorial Cup champs 5-1. Huberdeau was signed to an NHL contract by the Panthers just a few days ago. Zack Phillips, whom Bolt Prospects thought would be a candidate to be drafted by Tampa Bay last summer, was also held scoreless. Phillips, a Wild draft pick, has 10 points in seven games this season. He was taken 28th overall in the draft.

    Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2 (OT)

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hit
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 11 PIM

    Considering Milan played, he obviously wasn’t suspended for his major penalty for checking to the head in Moncton’s last game. Milan, who had 38 points last year in his rookie season, is off to a slow start statistically. Moncton leads the Maritimes Division with 15 points (7-6-1-0).

    Freshman, Matthew Peca picked up an assist for the second straight game as Quinnipiac downed Holy Cross in the Crusaders' season opener.

    Chekhov 4 @ Cherepovets 3 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 7 GP, 5-2-0, 0 SO, 2.26 GAA, .932 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin sat backup for Cherepovets in their 4-3 shootout loss to Chekhov. Legendary Nick Tarnasky did not suit up for Chekhov. Cherepovets plays Novosibirsk on Friday.

    St. Petersburg 4 @ CSKA 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA, DNP
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 4 GP, 5-4-9, E, 4 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov's ride on the CSKA shuttle to and from junior may be over for a little while, as he did not appear for the team's KHL side today in their 4-2 loss to SKA. Ex-NHLer Alexei Yashin had a goal in the match for CSKA. CSKA's KHL team plays Nizhnekamsk next on Friday.

    Blues 3 @ JYP 2 (SO)

    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 4 GP, 5-4-9, E, 4 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov had a game opening power play goal and a third period even strength marker in CSKA Jr.'s 6-2 spanking of Mytischi Jr. CSKA's junior side faces Stupino next on Saturday. We'll see if Kucherov rides the shuttle back up to the KHL in the meantime.

    Kazan Jr. 7 @ Chelyabinsk Jr. 2
    Nikita Nesterov, 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 13 GP, 4-5-9, +10, 10 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov's third period power play assist was little consolation for Chelyabinsk Jr. as they were dismantled 7-2 by Kazan Jr. They face Kirov-Chepetsk next on Thursday.

    Didn't even deserve a point.

    WSH 6 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 5 goals on 43 shots before he allowed 2 of 3 shooters to convert for the shootout loss. Honestly, though, without Roli the Lightning lose 10-5 in this game as terrible as they played.

    First Period
    TB Purcell (1), (Gervais), 2:22
    WSH Johansson (1), (Alzner), 4:49
    TB Gervais (1), (Bergeron, Downie), 8:35
    WSH Wideman (1), (Halpern, Perrault), 16:50

    Second Period
    TB Moore (1), (Shannon, Connolly), 00:56
    WSH Brouwer (1), (Schultz, Johansson), 3:42

    Third Period
    WSH Chimera (1), (Laich, Ward), 4:00
    TB Thompson (1), (Clark, Moore), 7:42
    TB Clark (1), (Malone, Purcell), 12:56
    WSH Chimera (2), (unassisted), 17:16


    WSH- Hendricks, Semin
    TB- NONE

    Dominic Moore was the game's third star. Probably a bit tongue and cheek by the Washington media considering he assisted on Chimera's tying goal with a terrible clear attempt. That was the last of a rash of bad turnovers the likes of which I haven't seen in a while. Veterans were doing it: Moore (2), Kubina (2), St. Louis (1). Rookies were doing it: Connolly (2). It was awful. And, when you couple that with the Lightning simply not winning puck battles, you get a game where the Lightning were outshot 43-28. Were it not for Tomas Vokoun being positively horrible on three soft goals, they'd have had no shot.

    Brett Connolly had his first NHL point on an assist and was +1 with 1 hit in 12:46. The stat line may be good, but the game film was terrible. He had two bad turnovers, he was soft along the wall, and he just wasn't as offensively dynamic as he was against the Bruins. That's the kind of tape that gets you demoted.

    Mattias Ritola had 1 shot in 6:36, and he was largely ineffective.
