    Season Totals: 26 GP, 15-9-0-1, 2.75 GAA, 0.906 SV%, 1 SO

    Back-to-back games against the best team in the league was a tall order for the surging K-Wings, and a chance to measure themselves against a team they will likely have to go through for a deep run in the Kelly Cup playoffs. Big props to the red hot Nic Riopel, who allowed just one Walleye goal on 31 shots Friday night, and enabled Kalamazoo to hold serve this weekend after Toledo put up 6 on the scoreboard Saturday night against Joel Martin. Riopel, winner of 11 in his last 12 starts, earned 2nd Star honors for his performance Friday. The K-Wings remain 3 points behind Quad Cities in the Central Division standings, looking to avoid a 1st round meeting against these Walleye. Speaking of Quad Cities, Kalamazoo travels to the Wireless Center in Moline, IL Wednesday for a big road game against the Mallards, before a home-and-home Friday and Saturday nights against the lowly Indy Fuel.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    It wasn’t the result he hoped for, but Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx liked his team’s effort.

    The Crunch — depleted by injuries and call-ups — tied the score early in the third period but fell to the St. John’s IceCaps, 3-2, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “You know what? Hat’s off to our players,” Groulx said. “It was a great effort. You’re losing Matt Peca last night. We’re losing (Cory) Conacher tonight — couldn’t play. We had a few more guys banged up and we came up with that great effort. It’s a well deserved point.”

    No centers? No problem.

    FLA-2
    TB-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 34 shots for the victory. The good ones respond to giving up a couple of early goals by shutting the door the rest of the way. This is about the 3rd or 4th time I can recall this season that Vasiy showed that kind of resiliency and mettle.

    First Period
    16:32 FLA Jagr (14), (Barkov, Marchessault)
    19:13 FLA Pysyk (4), (Smith, Barkov)

    Second Period
    3:43 TB Kucherov (31), (Hedman, Drouin)(PP)
    10:11 TB Gourde (1), (unassisted)(SH)

    Third Period
    17:37 TB Palat (14), (Sustr)

    Ondrej Palay, Vasilevskiy, and Yanni Gourde were the game's three stars.

    Tampa Bay responded to bad luck and adversity with gutty brilliance tonight in a fashion that should make every Lightning fan proud of their team. They played a great First Period but found themselves on the unlucky end of a couple of greasy goals by the Panthers and some hot goaltending by Reimer (who actually played a whale of a game despite the loss). The Lightning didn't sag in the Second Period, as a lesser team would, and quickly cut the lead in half with the ubiquitous Nikita Kucherov power play goal. about 6 minutes later Gourde made one of the more fantastic individual plays you'll ever see to get the shorthanded goal with a defender draped all over him. Things got hairy almost immediately thereafter, though, when Andrey Sustr took a high sticking call that put the Lightning down 2 men and in danger of immediately surrendering the momentum. Remember, this is a team that dealt off two of its supposedly best PK'ers in Boyle and Filppula and has others like Paquette sitting on the shelf injured at the moment. To not allow a goal there set the tone for the rest of the game, and the Espo Rule victory pre-saged the eventual Lightning win in the Third Period, which was partially made possible by an amazing post to post save by Vasilevskiy on Sceviour late in the frame.

    Tampa Bay sits at 73 points with 15 games left to go in the campaign. To reach a magic 96 points, they'll need 23 of a remaining 30 points or a .767 winning percentage. It may take a few less points than that to actually make the postseason, but you get the point about how steep the hill is. They've still got to play about .750 hockey the rest of the way to give themselves a chance.

    Luke Witkowski had 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 7:40.

    Gregg McKegg was 63% on 8 draws in 7:38.

    Jake Dotchin had 2 penalty minutes, 4 shots, and 2 hits in 19:30.

    Gabriel Dumont had 5 penalty minutes and 2 hits in 9:24. He and Stralman lowered the boom to knock a couple of Panthers out of the game and set a physical tone tonight.

    Matthew Peca was 0% on 7 draws in 10:39. Yikes.

    Gourde had his first NHL goal and 2 shots in 17:09. He's been a completely different player in this callup. You wouldn't have known he was even in the lineup in his previous cups of coffee, but he's been a difference maker the past couple of outings.

    Adam Erne had a clean sheet in 13:01. Might be hitting a wall in terms of his effectiveness on this recall.
