NHL Game Night 2/9: Lightning at Rangers

After winning 7 straight on the road, I suppose they were due for a stinker.

TB-0
NYR-5

Johan Holmqvist allowed 4 goals on 16 shots before being pulled in the loss. It wasn't under the best of circumstances, obviously, but tonight was Holmqvist's 30th decision of the season which graduated him by site criteria. Holmqvist has been moved to the Bolt Prospects Alumni section on the Prospects page.

Kudos to Ryan Craig for defending Blair Jones after Ryan Hollweg decided to try to knee the rookie. Craig is a man. The Lightning fail to keep pace with Atlanta and are now 7 points behind Atlanta, but still hold a game in hand.

First Period
NY Rangers 4:28, Colton Orr 1 (Fedor Tyutin, Blair Betts)
NY Rangers 11:32, Marcel Hossa 4 (Michal Rozsival, Martin Straka)

Second Period
NY Rangers 8:28, Ryan Hollweg 1 (Jaromir Jagr)
NY Rangers 14:25, Sean Avery 11 (Michael Nylander, Brendan Shanahan)

Third Period
NY Rangers 3:32, Jaromir Jagr 21 (Martin Straka)

CHL Game Night 2/8: Bartanus Breaks Two Streaks

Two streaks are over; one remains.

After 14 games, Marek Bartanus finally registered a point. Granted, it was "just" an assist, but considering how much Bartanus has struggled to hit the scoresheet lately, it's to be cheered.

Well, maybe not loudly.

The assist came with under 30 seconds left in a game that was already out of reach for Windsor. Owen Sound led 7-4 before Bartanus got a second assist on the Attack's eighth marker.

While that was cutting it close, he did finish a plus-3, breaking his 26 game streak without finishing a game on the plus side of his plus/minus rating. The last time he finished a game with a plus was November 3 when he was plus-3 and had 4 assists in a game against Oshawa.

Bartanus' streak of games without a goal is now at 21, however. He last scored just before the American Thanksgiving, 11-22-06, also in a game against Oshawa.

Bartanus has 4 goals and 13 assists for 17 points in 42 games this year. He had 19 points (7 goals) in 49 games last season.
