KHL Game Day: 11-15-16

St. Petersburg 9 vs. Astana 0
Nikita Gusev, St. Petersburg, 1-4-5, +4, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 29 GP, 13-27-40, +30, 6 PIM

Nikita Gusev had an even strength goal and four helpers, two of which came with the man advantage, as SKA destroyed Barys Astana 9-0. Gusev, amazingly, played just 12:50 in the match. He is still third in the KHL in scoring, but is now just 3 points back of Sergei Mozyakin and Ilya Kovalchuk for the top spot and is tied with ex-Oilers pick Linus Omark for first in the league in helpers. Gusev's linemate, ex-Pather Evgeny Dadonov, had the big game for SKA with 4 goals and 5 points in the win. Just as a reminder, 31 games into the season, St. Petersburg has just one loss in regulation thus far. One.

NHL Game Night: 11-14-16 Lightning at Islanders

UNLEASH THE KITTENS!

TB-4
NYI-0

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 34 shots he faced for the shutout win. He looked about as solid as the security around Fort Knox all night. He didn't face a ton of chances in the middle frame, in particular, but even if he had, the Isles were getting nothing from Vasiy tonight. Vasilevskiy's next decision will graduate him from prospect status on the website.

First Period
18:58 TB Brown (2), (Paquette, Coburn)
19:40 TB Callahan (1), (Sustr, Hedman)

Second Period
14:24 TB Kucherov (6), (Stamkos)(PP)
17:02 TB Namestnikov (3), (Stamkos, Kucherov)(PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Steven Stamkos, Vasilevskiy, and Nikita Nesterov were the game's three stars. Why Nesterov? 19:24 of ice time filling in for the injured Anton Stralman. Nesterov played almost 20 minutes and the Lightning got a shutout? You'd have gotten good odds in Vegas against that, I'm sure.

The Lightning should just petition the league to play the Isles every single game. They'll go 82-0. The Islanders really tried in this game, unlike how they folded like a cheap tent in the first of the three encounters against Tampa Bay. But, with two quick strikes at the end of the First Period, the Lightning again took the heart of the allegedly rough, tough, and gritty Islanders. The Lightning then put on an absolute clinic in the Second Period before garbage time in the Third Period when Vasilevskiy raised the force fields to preserve his shutout.

Brayden Point was +1 with 1 shot in 16:07.

Slater Koekkoek was +1 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 11:16.

Richard Records Hat Trick, Crunch Rout Americans


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Tanner Richard netted his first goal of the season and the next two followed quickly.

The Crunch center rushed down on a 2-on-1, pulled up to avoid a sprawling defenseman and buried the puck over the goalie’s shoulder. Richard’s goal with 24 seconds remaining capped his first career hat trick, as Syracuse routed the Rochester Americans, 7-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

“The puck was in the neutral zone and (Michael) Bournival set up a perfect trap for them, and then (Erik) Condra kind of touched it to me,” Richard said. “I wanted to go backdoor all the way — I think everyone in the building knew that — and the D-man slid to take it away, so I figured I may as well take a shot.”
