    Let down.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 5 goals on 23 shots for the loss. In two relief stints, Dan Ellis allowed 3 on 18.

    First Period
    00:07 PIT Malkin (15), unassisted
    02:23 PIT Conner (5), Lovejoy (4), Cooke (11)
    07:17 PIT Kennedy (6), Letang (28)

    Second Period
    12:54 PIT Letestu (9), Kennedy (12), Goligoski (14)
    19:49 PIT Kunitz (13), Goligoski (15), Letang (30)(PP)

    Third Period
    02:25 TB Hall (5), Thompson (9), Tyrell (6)
    03:38 PIT Goligoski (7), Conner (4), Lovejoy (5)

    It was an emotional game last night and the Lightning thought they could ease themselves into tonight's game and the Penguins jumped them, and it was a 7-0 mugging by the end of two periods. It's a damned shame because the Lightning had spent weeks working back to even in goal differential, and now they're set back to -7 for the year. The good news is that it's 1 of 82, but my guess is that Guy Boucher won't be happy with the Lightning's flat second period response to adversity.

    Dana Tyrell had an assist and was +1 with 1 shot in 11:58. If you can be +1 in an 8-1 loss, I suppose that's a positive for you. Tyrell is now 3 games from graduation from prospect status here on BoltProspects.

    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

    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.

    Tomorrow, Slovakia will play the Czech Republic to polish off the relegation round, setting the stage for Wednesday's championship game between the Canadians and semifinal winner Russia, which beat Sweden 4-3 in a shootout today. Sweden will play Team USA for the bronze medal in the match preceeding the championship game.

    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.
