    Total third period implosion.

    PRO-6
    SPR-2

    Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 19 shots before giving way to Jonathan Boutin who fared even worse allowing 2 goals on 5 shots. Justin Keller and Norm Milley had Springfield's goals with assists belonging to Marek Kvapil, Jay Rosehill and Daniel Corso. Unfortunately, after hanging around for the first 40 minutes of the game, Springfield self destructed and allowed 4 goals in the final frame. The Falcons also had an opportunity to take a 2-0 lead early in the game on a David Spina penalty shot, but Spina failed to score and a Bruins goal in the final minutes of the first evened the game up.

    Positives: with Kyle Wanvig up in Tampa on recall, Kvapil was moved back up to the second line with Keller and Spina and the three responded. Kvapil had the assist and 2 shots on goal, Spina had 4 shots and Keller had a team high 5 shots on goal. Hopefully the youngsters can keep it up. Remember, a couple of years ago Paul Ranger and Evgeny Artyukhin really came on at the end of the year (especially Ranger in the last dozen games) and it catapulted them into the NHL early the next year. Even though Springfield's playoff chances are slim and none, these young players still have a lot of developmental time left to capitalize on and once the college and junior team seasons start to end there will be an opportunity for the Lightning to identify some players to sign to ATO contracts with a view toward shaping next year's roster. There's still a lot to play for here.

    Andreas Holmqvist scored a late goal and had 2 penalty minutes in Linkopings' 4-0 victory over Malmo today. The goal was Holmqvist's 6th of the season and his 26th point in 46 games to go along with 52 penalty minutes and a +2 rating. In 46 games last season, Holmqvist recorded 6 goals and 22 points with 64 penalty minutes and a +8 rating. Linkopings currently sits in 6th place on the Elitserien table at 1 game over .500. Last year, with former Lightning prospect Fredrik Norrena between the pipes, Linkopings finished third in the Elitserien at 14 games over .500.

    Erie 1 @ Kitchener 2
    The lowly Erie Otters went into Kitchener to face the Rangers - the team with the league's third-best point total at 82 - and nearly pulled off the upset thanks to Kevin Beech. Beech stopped 50 of 52 shots in the 2-1 loss, including 22 of 23 in the first period. The Otters held a brief 1-0 lead midway through the first period. The Otters were outshot 52-28. Beech was named the game's third star.

    Ottawa 5 @ Mississauga 2
    Chris Lawrence had a rare scoreless night, finishing minus-2 with a roughing minor as the IceDogs dropped a home game to Ottawa. Considering the 67's are more than 20 points behind Mississauga in the standings, this was a bad loss for the IceDogs. Mississauga is 5 points behind division leading Barrie with 2 games in hand, so these lost 2 points will hurt.

    Prince George 5 @ Spokane 2
    The Cougars got revenge for a loss to the Chiefs earlier this week as they scored three third period goals to beat Spokane 5-2 on the Chiefs' home ice. Vladimir Mihalik was scoreless and even for the game, and should probably check the curve on his stick as he had two minor penalties for delay-of-game.

    Everett 4 @ Vancouver 3 (Shootout)
    The Silvertips squeaked by the Giants 4-3 in a shootout in Vancouver Friday night. Dane Crowley did not register a point, but had an even rating and received 15 minutes in penalties for a first period fight against Florida Panthers first round pick Kendall McArthur. He was given a 10 minute misconduct on the play, but no instigator. It's good to see Crowley avoiding the rush and hating the Panthers early. The fight happened just three seconds into the game. Apparently Crowley got a few good shots in, but McArthur scored the takedown.

    Ambush.

    BOS-6
    TB-2

    Marc Denis stopped just 5 of 7 shots faced before being lifted for Johan Holmqvist who was even more horrid allowing 4 goals on 16 shots faced. Dan Boyle and Filip Kuba had the Lightning goals. Brad Richards, Vincent Lecavalier and Eric Perrin recorded assists. Positives? Not many. Kuba getting back on the scoreboard after a prolonged drought is nice. Getting Blair Jones some development time in the third period after playing just 2 (albeit long) shifts last night in Atlanta is also nice. Jones had 1 shot in 10:13 of ice time tonight.

    Ball this one up and throw it in the trash can. The Lightning really left it all on the ice last night in Atlanta and had little in the tank to deal with Boston, especially considering what a poor goaltending effort they got tonight. Boston was laying in wait in Tampa soaking up the sun. Rested and ready they pounced. That's just the way the situation unfolded. Certainly, it stinks to burn the team's game in hand on Atlanta this way, but I don't believe this is foreshadowing of things to come.

    First Period
    Boston 1:46, Marco Sturm 20 (Phil Kessel, Brandon Bochenski)
    Tampa Bay 5:29, Dan Boyle 14 (power play) (Brad Richards, Vincent Lecavalier)

    Zbynek Hrdel shows a pulse.

Hrdel extended his point streak now to 3 games after going the previous 10 games without a point. Maxime Boisclair and Stanislav Lascek had individual helpers in the game. Smolenak, Hrdel and Nathe were named the game's three stars.

    First, I want to thank BP member Chelya for getting the explanation as to why the (former) official statistics site of the Superleague went down. Apparently the league chose not to renew with Global-Sport so they folded their website. With that in mind, here are the updates from a little over three tours worth of action in the last week:

    That's the pride of a champion right there.

    TB-5
    ATL-4 (OT)

    Marc Denis stopped 24 of 28 shots in regulation and overtime but still managed to get the win as the Lightning overcame a pair of 2 goal deficits in the second period and a 1 goal deficit in the 3rd period to take the division lead free and clear. Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards each had 1 goal and 2 assists with Marty potting the deciding game winning goal. Dan Boyle had 2 assists while the other Lightning goals came from Eric Perrin, Vincent Lecavalier and the Doomsday Device, Andre Roy. For Lecavalier, it was his league leading 40th goal of the campaign; the first 40 goal season of his career. Vaclav Prospal and Paul Ranger had individual assists.

    The Lightning took the Thrashers' best punch in this game and still came out on top in an amazing display of character and resiliency. Coming out in the first period this team had zero jump and, indeed, looked like they were skating in quicksand as the Thrashers jumped all over them to eventually stake a 2-0 lead on a Marc Denis Charminy soft short side goal. The Lightning then struck with Brad Richards' goal but were quickly answered by a shot that went in off of Eric Boulton's shoulder and arm. Lesser teams would've folded up with the bounces going against them like that. The Lightning just rose to the challenge. I feel like I just watched one of those great 15+ round heavyweight fights from the 60's and 70's, and in the end the Lightning played the role of Ali and the Thrashers played the part of sucker on the canvas.

    The win moves the Lightning clear of the Thrashers into sole posession of the Southeast Division lead at 73 points, maintaining a 4 point lead on third place Carolina. More importantly, I think, the Lightning sent a deep psychological message to the Thrashers tonight. No matter what the Thrashers throw at the Lightning, when the chips are down, the Lightning win. That's one of those intangibles that make sports such great drama. The pride of a champion doesn't show up on paper, but it damn sure showed up on the scoreboard tonight.

    First Period
    Atlanta 2:38, Steve McCarthy 4 (power play) (Scott Mellanby, Marian Hossa)

    Second Period
    Atlanta 7:50, Eric Belanger 10 (Slava Kozlov, Andy Sutton)
