    Czech Republic 5 @ Slovakia 2
    Richard Panik, Slovakia, 2-0-2, -1, 4 PIM, 5 SOG
    Tournament totals: 6 GP, 7-2-9, +1, 12 PIM

    Adam Janosik, Slovakia, 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Tournament totals: 6 GP, 0-5-5, +1, 2 PIM

    Despite a pair of power play goals by Lightning prospect Richard Panik, Slovakia could not overcome an initial 4-0 defecit as they fell 5-2 to neighbor Czech Republic. Fellow Lightning prospect Adam Janosik assisted on one of Panik's goals. Panik also took minors for slashing and tripping. Panik and Janosik finished first and second on Team Slovakia in scoring, respectively, for the tournament. That's not half bad. They were also two of the four players on Slovakia to end the WJC's with a plus rating.

    Tomorrow night, Canada faces Russia in the tournament final.

    Lightning win a game marked by playoff style intensity and great goaltending.


    Dwayne Roloson stopped all 34 shots he faced to win his Lightning debut.

    First Period

    Second Period

    Third Period

    02:54 TB St Louis (17), Lecavalier (10), Kubina (12)

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

    It's pretty cool that the '03-'04 Cup team members dialed up the winning overtime goal. It's hard to imagine a more closely played game than tonight's, which is a marked improvement considering what a nightmare Washington DC has been traditionally for the Lightning. Now the Lightning hold first place in the Southeast with another potential statement game against Pittsburgh tomorrow night.

    Matt Smaby played his best game of the season, by the way.

    Dana Tyrell played 14:25 and the Kids n' the Hall line got quite a compliment going out for the first shift in overtime. Tyrell and company got shifts against the Ovechkin line here and there over the course of the night and they didn't acquit themselves poorly.

    The week from hell ends in a shutout defeat.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Greentree, (15) (Willsie, Aucoin), 11:34 (PP)

    Second Period
    HER Miskovic, (5) (Aucoin, Gordon), 7:32

    Third Period

    Norfolk only gained 2 of a possible 8 points in 4 games against division opponents that are in direct competition with them for positioning. Bad. Norfolk falls into a tie with Charlotte for second place with Hershey just one point behind, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is now 8 points ahead with 1 game in hand. Really bad.

    Canada 4 @ Switzerland 1
    Carter Ashton, Canada, 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (slashing), 0 SOG
    Tournament totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, E, 4 PIM

    Brett Connolly, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Tournament totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM

    Carter Ashton assisted on a Casey Cizikas goal that was the first of three unanswered goals in Canada's 4-1 victory over Switzerland. Brayden Schenn once again led the Canadians with a pair of assists. Brett Connolly created multiple scoring chances and hit a crossbar. He played a strong game.

    Slovakia 5 @ Norway 0
    Richard Panik, Slovakia, 4-1-5, +3, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Tournament totals: 5 GP, 6-2-8, +2, 8 PIM

    Adam Janosik, 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Tournament totals: 5 GP, 0-4-4, +2, 2 PIM

    Slovakian captain Richard Panik had a hat trick, with two empty net goals, and a helper while fellow Lightning prospect Adam Janosik added a pair of power play helpers in Slovakia's 5-0 blitzing of Norway. Slovakian netminder Juraj Holly stopped all 37 shots he faced for the shutout. Slovakia was actually outshot 37-31 in the match.

    Canada moves on to face Team USA tomorrow in their seemingly annual battle of the titans in the semifinals. Slovakia will face the Czech Republic in a backyard brawl on Tuesday to complete the relegation round slate. Slovakia will finish no worse than second in the relegation round group. Norway will be relegated and it will take a German win against Norway and a Czech loss to Slovakia for the Germans to avoid the same fate.

    Penticton Vees 1 @ Vernon Vipers 3
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 1-0-1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 39 GP, 16-33-49, 18 PIM

    Penticton entered the game two points ahead of Vernon for the Interior Conference lead, but after the night was done the two teams were tied atop the standings. O’Donnell’s power play goal in the second period cut the Vipers’ lead to 2-1, but the Vees couldn’t complete the comeback. O’Donnell was named the game’s Second Star for his efforts.


    Fargo Force 5 @ Sioux Falls Stampede 2
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 23 GP, 14-17-31, +17, 18 PIM

    Mullin set up Colton Hargrove with the eventual game winning goal less than a minute after the Stampede had tied the game in the second period, then scored the insurance goal early in the third to lead the Force to a road win in Sioux Falls. Fargo pulled within three points of Dubuque for the Western Conference lead. Meanwhile, Mullin is within four points of the USHL scoring lead despite playing three fewer games than leader Vinny Saponari (Thrashers) of Dubuque. Saponari was kicked off the Boston University team last year with his brother and tried to transfer to Boston College but his application was denied. With his plus-1 night Saturday, Mullin leads the league in plus/minus at plus-17.


    Ottawa 67’s 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 6

    Season totals: 29 GP, 1-13-14, +12, 6 PIM

    Season Totals: 21 GP, 12-3-1-1, 3.34 GAA, .881 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador entered the game to start the second period in relief of Jordan Binnington and down 4-2. He allowed one goal on 20 shots the rest of the way to help the Attack claim victory. Joey Hishon (Avalanche) had five points (2+3) for Owen Sound.


    Red Deer Rebels 3 @ Saskatoon Blades 7
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 2-9-11, +10, 64 PIM

    Florida Everblades 2 @ Trenton Devils 5
    C Mitch Fadden: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 15-35-50, -2, 32 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: Did not play.
    Season totals: 22 GP, 7-4-11, -12, 10 PIM

    Florida was down 3-0 early and never could make a comeback. Fadden hit the 50-point mark for the season with a second period assist. With the Lightning’s acquisition of Dwayne Roloson, the goaltending dominoes in the organization will send Jaroslav Janus back to Southwest Florida in the coming days. Alex Hutchings remains out with a lower body injury.

    Cedrick the Entertainer is bidding to stick around a while.

    TB-2 (OT)

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 34 of 35 shots to improve to 2-0-0. He's earned another start, IMO.

    First Period
    13:03 TB Tyrell (4), Thompson (8)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    19:14 NYR Gaborik (11), Girardi (17)

    00:19 TB Thompson (6), Tyrell (5), Lundin (8)

    Desjardins and Nate Thompson were the game's first and third stars.

    Mattias Ritola had 1 shot in 7:55.

    Dana Tyrell had 1 goal and 1 assist and was +2 with 3 shots and 1 blocked shot in 14:12. It was Dana's first multi-point NHL game.
