Niagara IceDogs 1 @ Brampton Battalion 2

D Dylan Blujus, BRAM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 48 GP, 2-19-21, -5, 36 PIM

Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Guelph Storm 2

C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM
Season totals: 37 GP, 7-44-51, +18, 82 PIM

Coming off two wins this week against division-rival Owen Sound, the Storm were in prime position to leapfrog the Rangers in the Midwest Division with a win on Sunday, but it was not to be. Carolina prospect defenseman Ryan Murphy scored late in the second period to give Kitchener a 3-2 lead, which the Rangers made hold up for the duration of the game. Tanner Richard scored his seventh goal of the season on a penalty shot. He now has four goals in his last five games after starting the year with three in his first 32.

NHL Game Night: 1-27-13 Flyers at Lightning

Lightning starting to dial in the defense...


Anders Lindback allowed 1 goal on 25 shots for the victory. His one goal allowed was of the stinky doo doo variety with a puck sneaking by his skate on the post. Had it not been for that, he'd have had the shutout.

First Period
00:59 PHI Courturier (2), (Talbot)
14:34 TB Purcell (1), (Stamkos, St. Louis)(PP)
16:10 TB Brewer (3), (Purcell, St. Louis)
18:55 TB Lecavalier (2), (St. Louis, Salo)(PP)

Second Period

Third Period
00:58 TB Hedman (2), (Hall, Salo)
12:29 TB Stamkos (3), (Purcell, St. Louis)

Vincent Lecavalier, Sami Salo, and Martin St. Louis were the game's three stars. I don't know when it happened, but evidently Lecavalier became Mark Messier over the offseason. His bout with Luke Schenn in the first period changed the momentum after Lindback's softie, and that and the penalty kill essentially won the game.

Keith Aulie was -1 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 13:25. Aulie will graduate from prospect status on Bolt Prospects in his next NHL game.

Cory Conacher had 1 shot in 12:57. They can't all be multi-point nights.

Matthew Pistilli was able to help Florida narrow a two-goal deficit nearly midway through the game but Greenville, living up to the club's name, struck three more times en route to a resounding defeat of their hosts. The match was decided by the Road Warriors in the beginning and final frames, during which they outscored and outshot the Everblades 4-0 and 28-14 respectively. Alex Hutchings, returned from yet another AHL stint, and Daniel Milan were the only Lightning prospects to see any action as Pat Nagle sat in favor of Rob Madore and Charles Landry was recalled to Syracuse on Monday. Florida (20-15-7, 47 PTS)and Greenville (27-14-4, 58 PTS) resume hostilities late Sunday afternoon.

Brynas 1 @ Linkopings 3

Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 44 GP, 16-8-24, +1, 14 PIM

Brynas fell behind by two during a ten minute stretch in the first period, and three early in the third period to Linkopings, which scored all three of its goals on the power play en route to handing the visitors their third-straight defeat and seventh loss in their last eight matches. Ryan Gunderson scored the lone goal for Brynas early in the third period to prevent the shutout bid. Brynas (15-16-5-8, 63 PTS) heads home to regroup before taking on AIK (11-21-4-7, 43 PTS), a club that has struggled plenty this season but to whom Brynas has lost each of the last three games it has hosted between the two teams, on Tuesday.
