Tokarski part of a St. Valentine's Day Massacre of Edmonton ... Fadden hits 60 ... Barberio helps Moncton to shootout win.
At least Ramo got some work.

Two AHL goaltenders and both your best d-men on the shelf is not the way you want to face this Caps team. The Lightning actually had their chances to make a game of it, but Washington's stars finished their chances. The Lightning's did not.
Steve Downie was -1 with 1 shot, hits, and 1 blocked shot in 12:49.
Matt Smaby was -3 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 4 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 20:12.
David Koci had 2 shots in 8:43.
The Ads' newly signed goaltender gives no love or kisses to Hershey.
Craig Kowalski allowed 4 goals on 50 shots for the win.

Brandon Segal and Kowalski were the game's first and third stars. Segal deserves a callup before the year is over.
Chris Gratton was back in the lineup tonight after passing through re-entry waivers.
