Game Night 10/20: Lightning at Thrashers

The Lightning torched the Thrashers young goaltenders as Nick Tarnasky and Evgeny Artyukhin made quiet NHL debuts each with just under 8 minutes of ice time a piece. Paul Ranger continued to settle into his job as the Lightning's #6 defenseman getting over 15 minutes of ice time and rating a +2 before receiving a vicious cheap shot elbow from a Thrasher forechecker. Vinny Lecavalier with a 4 point night. I hope a certain so-called editor from Hockey's Future enjoyed the game. [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020100.HTM]I know I did.[/url]

Glukhov/But Score in Superleague

Although he has yet to score a goal this season for Khimik MO, Alexei Glukhov continues to build his reputation as one of the better young playmakers in Russia. Glukhov assisted on Khimik MO's lone goal today, a 1st period marker by Dimitry Kosmachev, as his club tied Salavat Yulayev 1-1. The assist is Glukhov's 7th of the season. That would've tied Anton But for the lead amongst Lightning prospects in Russia, but the left winger assisted on Alexei Vasiliyev's second period talley in a 3-2 loss to Kazan to record his 8th helper of the 2005-2006 campaign. For Togliatti, Vasily Koshechkin sat today as goaltender David Svoboda fell 2-1 to Omsk. Dimitry Kazionov did dress today and was held scoreless for Lada.

No Decision Yet
