Strange. I had forgotten what a regulation loss feels like.

TB 15:18, St Louis 5 (Foster, Lecavalier)(PP)
CAR 2:35, Ruutu 6 (Whitney, Pitkanen)(PP)
CAR 13:46, Jokinen 6 (Corvo, LaRose)
CAR 15:37, LaRose 1 (Samsonov, Corvo)
It was a tough spot to be in, flying 5 hours cross country. The important thing is to now allow the loss to snowball. They have Atlanta tomorrow night and that's a game they really need to get two points out of.
Steve Downie had 1 shot and, oh my gosh, 7 hits in 15:01. He's really playing well, and tomorrow night's game against Atlanta will be his 82nd career NHL game, which graduates him from prospect status here on BP.
Zenon Konopka had 1 hit and was 78% on draws in 7:03.
Paul Szczechura had 1 shot in 12:33.
James Wright had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 12:18.
Victor Hedman was -2 in 22:45 and really got rocked on a hit trying to cross the opposing blueline on a rush. He seems a little rudderless at times without Matias Ohlund around.
Admirals now fall to .500 on their Northeast swing and for the season.
Riku Helenius allowed 3 goals on 22 shots for the loss.
NOR Keller, (5) (Bochenski, Lashoff), 7:50

It's nice to be able to take Matt Lashoff's face off the milk carton.

Magnitogorsk 1 @ Novgorod 3
