It's been a busy week and I realized that I hadn't posted this, but Zbynek Hrdel was recalled to Springfield on Monday (3/10). He was -3 in the contest against Albany on Wednesday. Even with the recall, the Falcons were forced to play a man short in the game. Springfield plays Hartford tonight at 7:35 ET.

Today was the final tour of the Superleague regular season and the best story amongst Lightning prospects remains Vasily Koshechkin. The netminder ended in style today with a 1-0 shutout of Tver, his 10th no-no of the season. His record improved to 19-13-6 with the victory. The playoffs in the Superleague begin Monday. In the round of 16 it will be Dynamo against Lada, Khimik against Nizhnekamsk, Omsk against SKA St Petersburg, CSKA against Cherepovets and Yaroslavl against Novosibirsk.

Playoffs in serious jeopardy... TB-5 BUF-8 Sean Burke got the loss allowing 2 goals in relief but it was John Grahame's 5 goals on 16 shots through 2 periods that put the Lightning behind the eight ball. Paul Ranger got his 14th assist of the season, which is small solace. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020929.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]
