Game Night Results

    Admirals come back to steal a point in a wild goal-fest.

    CHA-7 (OT)

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 7 goals on 29 shots for the loss in his first AHL start of the season. I miss the pre-knee injury Janus from last season.

    First Period
    CHA Micflikier, (20) , 3:50
    CHA Terry, (19) (Matsumoto), 4:05
    NOR Jones, (14) (Wright, Bergeron), 8:01 (PP)
    NOR Fornataro, (15) (Barberio, Giliati), 13:18
    CHA Nash, (11) (Rodney, Samson), 18:18 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Harju, (17) (Roy, Wright), 4:51
    CHA Dalpe, (15) (Terry), 8:08
    NOR Gudas, (4) (Berry, Barberio), 14:00
    CHA Matsumoto, (13) , 17:14 (SH)

    Third Period
    CHA Matsumoto, (14) (Jordan), 8:59
    NOR Berry, (12) (Pouliot), 11:53 (PP)
    NOR Pouliot, (13) (Fornataro, Harju), 17:27

    CHA Samson, (24) , 1:11

    Alex Berry was the game's third star.

    Norfolk had to work in Janus somewhere over this back-to-back-to-back games set, and the results were going to be unpredictable. Unfortunately, giving up 7 goals, the worst case scenario occured. I suspect Tic will be back in against Binghamton tomorrow and on Saturday.

    I am heartened to see Johan Harju follow up his assist in the East's 11-8 All-Star victory on Monday night with a multi-point night in Charlotte. Big Joe hadn't had a multi-point game since November, although in fairness some of that time he was up with Tampa. I, personally, feel that it's important for Tampa Bay to keep Harju and other guys like Blair Jones rolling in Norfolk, because they'll provide depth in the case of injuries come playoff time.

    Norfolk desperately needs to take these upcoming games against fifth place Binghamton, or they could really play themselves into some trouble. Right now Norfolk is in third place in the East, tied at 59 points with Charlotte with a game in hand. But, Bingo lurks 6 points back. If they were to sweep, Norfolk would find it in some deep trouble. A Norfolk sweep this weekend could really help put the Sens away. It's a crossroads of the season.

    Linkopings 4 @ Sodertalje 0
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Loss, 25/29, 4.00 GAA, .862 sv%
    Season totals: 17 GP, 4-10-0, 0 SO, 2.89 GAA, .890 sv%

    Riku Helenius' momentum died at the hands of former Lightning draft pick Fredrik Norrena, who stopped all 24 shots he faced in Linkopings' 4-0 blanking of Sodertalje. Norrena also had an assist in the match. Former Lightning forward Jan Hlavac had an assist on Linkopings' opening goal, scored just 35 seconds into the match. Fortunately for Sodertalje, both MODO and Frolunda also lost today, so the club maintains its hold on the last playoff spot in the Elitserien by 3 points in the standings.

    Kazan 6 @ Novgorod 4
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 43 GP, 2-4-6, +6, 30 PIM

    Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 7:07 in Kazan's 6-4 win over Novgorod. Former Ducks draft pick Janne Pesonen led Kazan with a pair of goals in the match. Novgorod's Matt Ellison, a former Hawks draft pick and Norfolk Admiral, was the high man in the match with 1 goal and 3 points for Novgorod.

    In addition to scoring the game’s opening goal, Panik scored the game deciding shootout goal to break a 2-2 shootout tie and give the Storm a much-needed win over division rival Kitchener. With the shootout goal, Panik made up for a roughing penalty late in overtime. With the win, Guelph moved up to seventh place in the Western Conference, 11 points ahead of ninth place Sarnia. The Storm is fourth in the Midwest Division, 13 points behind Owen Sound for first and one point ahead of Erie for fifth.

    Greenville Road Warriors 2 @ Florida Everblades 5
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out for 3 months - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (roughing), 1 SOG
    Season totals: 29 GP, 7-7-14, -7, 21 PIM

    Ross Carlson had a goal and two assists and Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings had an assist as the Everblades took Game 1 vs. division rival Greenville 5-2 Wednesday. The teams are in a three-game series this week/weekend and with the win, Florida pulled into a first-place tie with the Road Warriors. According to the Everblades, Hutchings tried to stuff the puck inside the left post, but had the puck roll free to the opposite post, where Bobby Raymond poked it in to open the game’s scoring. The teams will play again Friday and Saturday. Although they are currently tied at the top of the division, Greenville has a whopping five games in hand on Florida.

    Novokuznetsk 0 @ Cherepovets 3
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 30 GP, 16-14-0, 2 SO, 2.98 GAA, .905 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin did not dress for Cherepovets as Rostislav Stana made 24 saves in a 3-0 shutout win over Novokuznetsk.

    Sudbury Wolves 3 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2 (SO)
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

    It’s hard to believe Beukeboom was 7-19-26 last year. If he finishes strong, it will go a long way to build momentum for next year when a decision will be made on his professional future. He’s got plenty of time and plenty of upside.


    Red Deer Rebels 5 @ Saskatoon Blades 7
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +3, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 2-13-15, +17, 102 PIM

    Zahn was a team-high plus-3 Tuesday and is now plus-17 for the year. His previous career-high in that category was plus-5 two years ago. Defenseman Stefan Elliott (Avalanche) leads the Blades at plus-40.

    Were it not for a slight lack of concentration at the end of the Atlanta game, we'd be talking about a third straight Roli shutout right now.


    Dwayne Roloson stopped all 38 shots he faced for the shutout. He makes things look easy that aren't easy at all.

    First Period
    00:19 TB Purcell (9), Lecavalier (16), Gagne (5)
    01:21 TB Purcell (10), Gagne (6)
    14:24 TB Downie (5), St Louis (41), Jones (10)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    08:51 TB Stamkos (39), St Louis (42), Clark (12)

    Roloson, Teddy Purcell, and Simon Gagne were the game's three stars. Have I mentioned the league is probably sweating bullets that Gagne is coming on now?

    Honestly, this wasn't the best game the Lightning have played. They got away with letting their collective foot off the gas after getting a quick turnover goal, a flukey goal, and then a great individual effort, and got away with it because of how well Roli played. Still, it's fantastic to beat the top team in the conference and move to 3-0-0 on this homestand.

    One other positive from this game: the Lightning finally moved to the positive side of the ledger in goal differential after languising in the minus for most of the year. They're now +4 with 9 more home games to go on this stand. They're not going to catch teams like Philly, Pittsburgh, and Boston that are currently in the +40's, but it'd be great for the Lightning to at least run out to at least the +10 to +15 range by the end of the year.
