Stanislav Lascek's Chicoutimi Sagueneens [url=http://www.lhjmq.qc.ca/lang_en/index.php?page=232&id_nouvelle=897&PHPSESSID=079d33dfcd943d9da0b02bbf6aac3932]have been named the #1 ranked team in the CHL according to the Bank of Montreal sponsored CHL Top Ten which is selected by a panel of NHL scouts.[/url] Chicoutimi is led by QMJHL leading scorer and Lightning prospect Stanislav Lascek who has 22 goals and 72 points in 32 games. Beyond Lascek, the Sags have an impressive array of offensive weapons that include Buffalo first round pick Marek Zagrapan, highly skilled but diminutive David Desharnais and Lightning Traverse City camp invitee Maxime Boisclair. With such a powerful lineup, Chicoutimi is a bona fide Memorial Cup contender this season.

Back from their brief vacation, the Lightning squeak out a win. STL-4 TB-5 Fedotenko, Prospal and Modin had multi-point nights. Both Ranger and Artyukhin added assists. Ranger also had 15:28 of ice time and was an outstanding +3 on the night. Evgeny Artyukhin had 9:14 of ice time, two shots, one brutal hit, and was part of the key forechecking shift that tied the game on Tim Taylor's third period goal. The Lightning, still only playing to 85% of their capability, are now 9-1-1 over their last 11 games. Game sheet from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020419.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]

Fredrik Emwall scored an extra attacker goal with 1:57 left today to lift Linkopings to a 2-2 tie with Leksands. Fredrik Norrena stopped 24 of 26 shots faced in the contest. The Finnish born netminder's record moves to 14-5-3 on the year.

Anton But [url=http://www.rushockey.com/events.php?i=iihf&stream=iihf_news&id=435]has been included on the initial roster for Russia[/url] in the Rosno Cup to be held in Moscow just before Christmas. Unfortunately, netminder Vasily Koshechkin was not named to the team despite sparkling play in the Superleague to this point of the season.

I've finished the bulk of the site upgrade process. You might still run across some things that I haven't fully re-configured or re-installed, but the most the day-to-day stuff is back. Most notable is that I haven't yet restored the image galleries. I'm still trying to decide what the final style and theme of the new site will be, so it may look different each time you visit over the next few days. Feel free to leave comments. :) I'll post more over the next few days. If you find some stuff not working, please leave a comment...
