    Season totals: 10 GP, 1-0-1, +5, 11 PIM

    Hanty-Mansiysk 4 @ Novokuznetsk 2
    Denis Kazionov, Novokuznetsk, 0-0-0, E, 25 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 27 PIM

    Denis Kazionov got thrown out of the game for spearing in 7:02 of ice time as Novokuznetsk fell to Yugra 4-2. Kazionov's penalty led to an Igor Skorokhodov power play goal that made the match 3-0 in the second period. Novokuznetsk got the game to 3-2 with a pair of power play goals of their own, but Skorokhodov scored a second goal with ten seconds left in regulation to seal Yugra's win. Skorokhodov currently leads Yugra in scoring after spending much of the past few seasons developing in Russia's lower leagues. He also leads the team in the number of "o's" in his name by two. Sorry Evgeny Khvostov, maybe next season.

    Kazan 3 @ Nizhnekamsk 1
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 7 GP, 1-0-1, -1, 6 PIM

    The elder Kazionov brother scored the game opening power play goal and logged 12:42 of ice time in Kazan's 3-1 win over Nizhnekamsk. The goal was Kazionov's first point of the season. Kazan also got goals from ex-NHLer Marcel Hossa and ex-Thrashers draft pick Ilya Nikulin.

    Way too much drama at the end, but the Lightning win.


    Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 19 shots for the win. Five goals worth of support can make a lot of goaltenders look good.

    First Period
    15:04 DAL Petersen (1), Robidas (1)(SH)
    16:21 TB Downie (2), St Louis (4), Stamkos (3)(PP)
    19:46 TB Stamkos (5), Hedman (2), Malone (4)(PP)

    Second Period
    06:04 DAL Burish (1), Ribeiro (6), Morrow (1)
    09:26 TB Bergenheim (1), Stamkos (4), Purcell (3)
    18:06 TB Moore (3), Kubina (1), Downie (4)(PP)

    Third Period
    06:11 TB Moore (4), Purcell (4), V. Hedman (3)(PP)
    06:24 DAL Morrow (5), (unassisted)
    19:00 DAL Neal (3), Richards (8), Ribeiro (7)

    Victor Hedman, Dominic Moore, and Nate Thompson were the game's three stars.

    When you outshoot a team 44-19, it's not supposed to be this close. The Lightning had good intensity, but they need to tighten up on the mental lapses.

    Dana Tyrell was -1 with 2 shots in 14:25.

    Michael Vernace was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 5:45.

    Gatineau outshot the Sagueneens 34-15, including 4-0 in overtime, but needed that extra session to win. Janosik was credited with two hits in the game. He had 35 points last year, but is off to a bit of a slow start statistically.

    Enjoy the free wings, Admirals fans.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the victory. He's gotten seven goals of support in each of his two starts this season. It's damned hard to lose when your team is lighting the lamp for you like that.

    First Period
    NOR Szczechura, (2) (Fornataro), 0:27
    NOR Harju, (1) (Jones, Wishart), 3:47
    NOR Durno, (1) (Wishart), 4:11
    WOR Ferriero, (3) (Marcou), 10:58
    WOR Marcou, (2) (Irwin, Hutton), 13:59 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Szczechura, (3) (Wright, Roy), 2:39
    NOR Pouliot, (1) (Jones, Harju), 3:46 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Harju, (2) (Roy, Pouliot), 7:11 (PP)
    NOR Durno, (2) (Simek, Barberio), 12:44

    Norfolk came out and threw a haymaker in the form of three quick early goals, but the Sharks came back with a couple of goals of their own to make it look like this was going to be a contest. However, credit to the Admirals, they outshot Worcester 23-8 in the second period, and the rout was on. They finished the game with a 56-36 edge in shots and another seven goals on the scoreboard.

    Congratulations to Johan Harju on his first two AHL goals, and he added an assist, as well. Congratulations also go to Mark Barberio on his first professional point, an assist on Chris Durno's second goal.

    There's a really long list of Admirals players who are putting up at least a point a game through the first three games of the season: Pouliot, Wright, Szczechura, Harju, Jones, Wishart, Fornataro, Roy, and Quick. And, there's not a single minus player on the team so far. Just a friendly suggestion to the bubble players in Tampa: don't have a bad game or a bad practice. Heck, don't even have a bad meal. There's a lot of players in Norfolk looking to take your jobs.

    If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? If the Panthers score six goals at their home opener... well... you get the point.


    Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 15 shots for the loss before being lifted for Mike Smith who allowed 3 goals on 23 shots the rest of the way. This loss was on the skaters, though.

    First Period
    01:50 FLA Stillman (1), McCabe (1), Dvorak (1)
    14:25 FLA Booth (1), Matthias (1), Olesz (2)
    15:13 FLA Reinprecht (1), Bernier (3), Santorelli (2)
    18:15 FLA Wideman (1)(PP), Weiss (1), McCabe (2)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    07:49 FLA Booth (2), Olesz (3), McCabe (3)
    17:25 FLAR Olesz (2), McCabe (4), Booth (3)

    The Lightning may have been a little tired, or they may have been a little too pleased with themselves. Either way, they re-learned the valuable lesson that in the NHL, if you come out flat, you can get embarassed by anyone in the league on any given night. The good thing is that it's one of eighty-two games. Dallas Stars on Monday. Turn the page.

    Mattias Ritola was -3 with 3 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 12:14. That +/- number looks terrible, but I thought he looked good in the offensive third and was one of the few Lightning players with any jump.

    Michael Vernace was -1 with 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:33. If I were Vernace, or Dana Tyrell, I'd be sweating bullets. There are a lot of players down in Norfolk playing some damned good hockey.
