    The Monarchs were deposed, violently, by Norfolk.


    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 23 of 25 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Angelidis, (6) (Roy, Fornataro), 1:49
    NOR Fornataro, (6) (Angelidis), 12:23
    MCH King, (7) (Moller, Voynov), 17:10 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Fornataro, (7) (Szczechura, Angelidis), 4:45
    NOR Jones, (8) (Labrie, Angelidis), 9:12
    NOR Angelidis, (7) (Roy, Durno), 18:55

    NOR Pouliot, (6) (Wright, Roy), 8:00

    Mike Angelidis, Matt Fornataro, and Marc-Antoine Pouliot were the game's three stars. Angelidis, who had just 24 points all of last season for Albany, had 2 goals and 5 points in this game and is already sitting on 15 points for the season.

    Mathieu Roy had 3 assists and was +6 after being returned to Norfolk by the Lightning. Ty Wishart and Angelidis were +5.

    Norfolk jumps back into second place in the East Division, but are 8 points back of first place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Norfolk heads into Portland tomorrow night to face the Pirates. With 92 goals, the club is averaging an even 4.00 goals per game to lead the AHL.

    Cherepovets 0 @ Hanty-Mansiysk 3
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 17 GP, 8-9-0, 1 SO, 2.80 GAA, .912 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin say backup as Rostislav Stana allowed 3 goals on 19 shots in Cherepovets' 3-0 loss to Yugra. A changing of the guard at the starting position may be in the cards now, as Koshechkin, with the exception of one poor start, has been hot since returning from a dominant Karjala Cup performance with the national team. Ex-Hawks draft pick and Norfolk Admiral Mikhail Yakubov had a pair of goals in the match for Yugra.

    Boston has always been hell for the Lightning.


    Mike Smith allowed 5 goals on 22 shots for the loss before giving way to Dan Ellis, who allowed 3 on 10 shots. Honest question: is Mike Smith damaged goods? Physically, mentally, and emotionally, is he damaged goods? He allowed a goal from outside the blueline by leaving soon on a shoot in and misplayed a puck behind his net that led to another goal. He was never mentally tough even before his concussion problems, often overreacting to bad breaks. Where is Smitty's psyche now?

    First Period
    10:52 BOS Krejci (3), Lucic (10), Ference (3)
    19:40 BOS Seidenberg (1), Ryder (9)

    Second Period
    06:48 BOS Lucic (12), Krejci (12), Horton (11) 15:14
    TB Hedman (2), Malone (12), Bergenheim (7)
    17:30 BOS Thornton (5), Marchand (7), Thomas (1)

    Third Period
    00:34 BOS Krejci (4), unassisted
    01:50 BOS Ryder (7), unassisted
    07:28 BOS Recchi (5), Ryder (10), Chara (7)(PP)
    13:55 BOS Wheeler (6), Recchi (12)

    Dana Tyrell had 2 shots in 15:06. If you can finish even in a game where your team gets whipped 8-1, you've done alright as a lower liner, in my opinion.

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-2-2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 29 GP, 13-21-34, 10 PIM

    For all those keeping track, that’s now 16 points in 8 post-WJAC games for O’Donnell (pictured). Penticton is one point out of first in the Interior Conference, just behind Salmon Arm.


    Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ PEI Rocket 1
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 28 GP, 3-9-12, +8, 16 PIM

    Janosik couldn’t build on his two-point night in his last outing, but had a solid night in the plus/minus category.

    D Charles Landry, MTL: 1-2-3, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 4-11-15, +10, 6 PIM

    Landry now has points in 5 of his last 6 games. His power play goal gave Montreal a 2-1 lead in the first period Wednesday, but Montreal ended up falling in overtime on an Artem Sergeev (2011 draft) goal.

    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 0-4-4, -13, 40 PIM

    Beukeboom missed his last game with the flu, but was back in the lineup Wednesday. The Soo had a 4-2 lead in this game early in the second period before Saginaw exploded.

    London Knights 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 2
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season totals: 19 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 4 PIM

    Schemitsch played in his first game since November 6 due to an “upper body injury.” He was scoreless in his return.

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 27 GP, 21-13-34, -5, 8 PIM

    Another game, another goal for Connolly. The Lightning’s 2010 first round pick has goals in three straight games and in five of his last six games. Thrashers pick Jimmy Bubnick had a hat trick for Calgary.

    Saskatoon Blades 7 @ Chilliwack Bruins 3
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (tripping, roughing)

    Jarosolav Janus stopped 49 shots and fellow Lightning prospect Mitch Fadden had his second consecutive three assist/plus-three game as Florida won their fourth in a row beating Kalamzoo 5-2 Wednesday night in Michigan. Janus earned First Star for his efforts and the goaltender saw his save percentage rise over .900 for the first time this year. Former Chicoutimi Sagueneen Francis Lemieux (undrafted) had a hat trick for the Everblades. With his three assists, Fadden extended his ECHL points lead to six. Florida teammate Matthew Pistilli, who Fadden set up for the game’s opening goal 20 seconds into the contest, pulled into a tie for second at 26 points.

    Gagne is back.

    TOR-3 (OT)

    Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 25 shots tonight for the win. His rebound control was pretty poor tonight, and he didn't make the greatest decision on Toronto's third goal to leave his crease to try to play the puck. Fortunately, the boys in front of him picked him up.

    First Period
    01:25 TOR Versteeg (7), Bozak (4), Gunnarsson (2)

    Second Period
    05:18 TB Malone (6), Gagne (1)(PP)
    11:51 TOR Kulemin (8), Kaberle (11), Versteeg (7)(PP)

    Third Period
    07:23 TOR Kulemin (9), Crabb (1), Komisarek (6)
    08:25 TB St Louis (9), Downie (12)
    19:51 TB St Louis (10), Stamkos (19), Moore (5)

    01:15 TB Gagne (1), Clark (6)

    Simon Gagne and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars. Gagne, in his first game back after missing almost a quarter of the season, scored the overtime winner, had a helper, and set a screen in front on the tying goal with less than ten seconds to go in regulation. I think I'd call that a successful return.

    Credit to the Lightning for playing 60 minutes of hockey. Good teams find ways to win games like this when they don't have their best but they find ways to make plays to pull out the two points. Bad teams find ways to lose games like this, and Toronto is surely a bad team.

    Mathieu Roy had 1 hit in 2:00. Nice work if you can get it.

    Dana Tyrell was -1 with 1 shot in 12:06.

    How close are the Lightning's prospects to graduation, you ask? Roy is 17 games off, based on the 82 career games rule. Tyrell is 19 games off. Ritola is 26 games off. B. Jones is 32 games off. Harju is 37 games off.
