NHL Game Night 12/6: Sabres at Lightning

The Lightning continue to be the antithesis of clutch.

BUF-4
TB-3

Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss.

First Period
10:02 BUF Stafford (4), (Gaustad)
13:05 TB St. Louis (7), (Lecavalier, Krajicek)

Second Period
09:46 BUF Vanek (19), (Roy, Stafford)
10:21 TB Ranger (2), (Lecavalier, Prospal)
14:41 BUF Hecht (3), (Mair, Lydman)
15:20 TB Prospal (6), (Malik, St. Louis)

Third Period
10:03 BUF Roy (7), (Numminen, Stafford)

Vets played better. The effort was there. The results weren't.

Steve Downie was -1 with 4 hits in 9:24, and lost a fight to Adam Mair.

Matt Smaby had 1 hit in 8:32, and was caught in no man's land on Buffalo's second goal. Tonight was the kind of night that gets you reassigned to the minors, in my opinion.

Paul Szczechura was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 15:21. He was also 71% on draws, and was the best among the recent callups tonight.

Steven Stamkos had 4 shots and was 67% on draws in 19:28. The Lightning look like they're starting to work the puck more to him on the power play, and the kid has a great shot. Frustratingly, it's still not finding twine yet.

N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/5

Fadden (pictured) and Tyrell exhibit their Christmas spirit by assisting others - a combined seven times. Courtnall continues to punch people.

C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG

Yikes. Both clubs are under .500 for the year. Matt Smaby’s alma mater improved to 6-8-1 with the blowout win. Harvard is a pedestrian 4-5-2. Both received votes for the latest USCHO poll, though they are out of the top-25.

AHL Game Night 12/5: Admirals at River Rats

Top to bottom awful.

NOR-1
ALB-8

Karri Ramo allowed 7 goals on 40 shots for the loss before being pulled for Mike McKenna who allowed 1 goal on 3 shots. Ramo looked like he responded well the last game out but wilted under a barrage of River Rats shots in the third period tonight.

First Period
ALB Dwyer, (4) (Blanchard, Rodney), 4:30
ALB Samson, (6) (Petruzalek, Rodney), 13:14
ALB Chaput, (4) (Carson, Dwyer), 13:32 (PP)

Second Period
ALB Ryan, (4) (Petruzalek, Angelidis), 9:21
NOR Curadeau, (2) (Jones), 12:48 (PP)

Third Period
ALB Angelidis, (6) (Blanchard, Dwyer), 4:13
ALB Helminen, (5) (Samson, Jensen), 5:06
ALB Angelidis, (7) (Dwyer), 11:17
ALB Dodge, (3) (Bordeleau, Flood), 11:56

They need to find a veteran defenseman and get him into Norfolk promptly. Ramo's partially to blame for the Admirals poor goals against this season, but it's also a product of rookies playing the inexperienced young pros on defense (AKA the dumb leading the blind). Tonight's Ty Wishart/Andy Rogers pairing was a combined -7, and bear in mind they were on the ice for Matieu Curadeau's goal, so they were actually worse than that number defensively.

Darren Rumble has a real challenge now trying to keep his club focused as the season is starting to come unravelled between trades, callups, bad defense, and bad goaltending. It's tough to keep the fighting spirit under bad conditions.
