    It felt like the Swamp Rabbits unleashed six games of winless frustration on an unsuspecting Atlanta squad Thursday night at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville. Lightning prospect Brian Hart scored his team leading fifth goal of the season, ripping a top shelf wrister from the hash marks. Fellow prospect Daniel Walcott, just reassigned from Syracuse earlier in the week, had a strong game in his debut with 3 shots and +2 rating. The Swamp Rabbits special teams shone bright with 1005 perfection on both the penalty kill and the power play. Greenville take Friday night off before hosting Adirondack Saturday night and a rematch with the Gladiators in Atlanta Sunday afternoon.

    Lightning stop the bleeding for one night.


    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 31 shots for the victory. With the fragile state the team is in, he simply couldn't allow them to fall behind in this game, and he didn't. He kept everything square until the breakthrough until the Third Period.

    First Period

    Second Period
    1:59 TB Boyle (3), (Coburn)
    6:45 CGY Bennett (4), (Backlund, Wideman)(PP)

    Third Period
    12:51 TB Stamkos (9), (Killorn, Johnson)(PP)
    18:27 TB Johnson (3), (Kucherov)

    Bishop and Ryan Callahan were the game's first and second stars.

    Three goals by the Lightning off of broken plays. I'll take it. On the NBCSN broadcast, Brian Engblom floated the idea the Lightning have hit a physical and emotional wall because of the amount of hockey they played last season on their deep Stanley Cup Final run by citing the experience of the Pittsburgh Penguins after deep runs under Dan Bylsma. That's plausible given the minimal roster turnover and the lack of energy and fight the team has shown at times. Eventually they'll work through that wall, but in the mean time they'll have to hope they can continue to manufacture wins like they did tonight. Again, at this point the question isn't if they'll be in a hole. The question is whether it will be a pot hole or a sink hole.

    Rock bottom?


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss. The third goal was a hugely deflating softie that went in off of his glove. For everyone who has been ready to ship Bishop out of town at the earliest convenience and make Vasiy the guy, pump the breaks. The kid's 21, and he is mortal. There will be rough patches that he needs to develop through.

    First Period
    5:57 BUF Eichel (6), (Franson)(PP)

    Second Period
    0:52 TB Stamkos (8), (Kucherov)(PP)
    1:40 BUF Franson (1), (Eichel, Ennis)

    Third Period
    5:24 BUF Foligno (1), (Legwand, Deslauriers)
    19:24 BUF Ristolainen (4), (Johnson)(EN)

    Ryan Callahan was the game's second star.

    I could sit here and tell you the Lightning outshot the Sabres, and they did. I could tell you they grossly outchanced the Sabres in the last 40 minutes of the game, and they did. There's not any comfort in that, because the Lightning have such a significant talent advantage on the Sabres that they should be outshooting and outchancing them. Ultimately, this comes down to something more fundamental than talent and tactics. At this point, it's looking more and more like the Lightning emotionally and mentally don't have the will. The Sabres wanted this game more. They've wanted it more in all four games this season and have routinely jumped on the Lightning in every first period where Tampa Bay often looked flat as a pancake. The difference is that they got the payoff tonight.

    So now the Lightning need to ask themselves if they have the will to turn this around. It's as simple as that. They need to outwork opponents. Absent that, they're not going to make the odd man rushes and the lucky breaks they need to get out of this slump. In retrospect, I wish Yzerman had made more than one small tweak to the roster to get more fresh, hungry blood onto the roster, but that's water under the bridge now. Short of a tweak like bringing up Koekkoek, the answers will have to come from inside that room, and it'll have to start with that fundamental question. Do you want it more than the other team? And if they can't convincingly answer that in the affirmative, they're screwed.

    It's not a question anymore of whether the team is in trouble. They'll finish this segment in the red by at least 2 points based on our old 12 in 10 rule. It's only a question of how deep the hole will be. Note that this is the first time, on a season-wide basis, the Lightning have been behind schedule in over 2 years. They've missed segment targets about 4 times in the previous two seasons, but they've always had insurance points banked to cover the damage. This is uncharted and dangerous waters.

    Omsk 0 vs. Jokerit 1
    Saku Salminen, Jokerit, DNP
    Season totals: 9 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

    Ex-Flames netminder Henrik Karlsson turned aside all 31 shots he faced in Jokerit's 1-0 win over Omsk.

    Togliatti 1 vs. Magnitogorsk 7
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 13/14, 1.00 GAA, .929 sv%
    Season totals: 24 GP, 10-9-4, 0 SO, 2.39 GAA, .912 sv%

    The Karjala break seems to have done Magnitka well, as they allowed just 14 shots on goal in a 7-1 thumping of Lada Togliatti. Ex-NHLer Wojtek Wolski led the way with 2 goals and 3 points in the victory.

    St. Petersburg 3 vs. Dynamo Moscow 2
    Nikita Gusev, St. Petersburg, 1-1-2, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals (St. Petersburg): 3 GP, 1-3-4, +3, 0 PIM
    Season totals (Khanty-Mansiysk): 23 GP, 7-7-14, +6, 4 PIM
    Season totals: 26 GP, 8-10-18, +9, 4 PIM

    Nikita Gusev had 1 goal and 1 assist in just 11:56 of ice time in SKA St. Petersburg's 3-2 win over Dynamo Moscow. Dynamo got a goal from ex-Lightning forward Martins Karsums in defeat. According to the KHL website, Gusev's contract expires on 4/30/16, after which the Lightning will be free to attempt to sign him if he does not sign an extension beforehand. In recent interviews, Gusev cited his openness to coming to North America to join his friend and former CSKA Jr. teammate Nikita Kucherov. However, big market SKA St. Petersburg will have the resources to put together a compelling financial package for Gusev to stay put if they want to retain him, so stay tuned.

    Novgorod 5 vs. Bratislava 3
    Carter Ashton, Novgorod, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 19 GP, 6-1-7, +2, 12 PIM

    Carter Ashton had 1 goal and 1 assist in 17:05 of ice time as Novgorod beat Bratislava 5-3. Bratislava got 1 goal and 1 assist from ex-NHLer Cam Barker in defeat.
