    Vasily Koshechkin enjoyed 5 goals of support from his Magnitogorsk teammates in their 5-3 win over Yugra. It's a good thing, too, as fellow Lightning draftee Nikita Gusev had a pair of helpers in 17:39 of ice time in his first game back after the All-Star Break to help lead a potent Yugra attack in defeat.

    St. Petersburg 1 vs. Mytischi 3
    Dmitry Korobov, Mytischi, 0-0-0, +3, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 1-8-9, +2, 51 PIM

    Dmitry Korobov was +3 in 19:34 of ice time in Mytischi's 3-1 win over SKA St. Petersburg. Mytischi got a goal from young right-handed defenseman Albert Yarullin in the victory.

    Jokerit 4 vs. Bratislava 0

    Jaroslav Janus did not dress for Slovan in their 4-0 shutout loss to Jokerit. Jokerit got a helper from ex-Oilers pick Linus Omark in the victory. Ex-Flames goaltender Henrik Karlsson stopped all 20 shots he faced for the win.

    While the forwards got off to a hot start, the Syracuse Crunch defense proved to be the difference.

    Syracuse opened the scoring 69 seconds into the game and Rochester answered with a pair of goals in the next 1:24, but three Crunch defensemen registered their second goal of the season in a 6-4 win over the Americans in the first game after the all-star break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "Bottom line is we've been working on in practice to get our D more involved in the offense, just get them up in the rush so they're in there for shots, more people at the net and D being more active," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "They were tonight."

    Dump Trick!


    Ben Bishop rebounded from his subpar performance against Carolina to allow just 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. He was very sharp after shaking off the All-Star Break hangover he had in the last outing.

    First Period
    2:03 TB Paquette (7), (Killorn, Garrison)
    11:59 DET Helm (9), (Ericsson, Datsyuk)
    19:23 TB Paquette (8), (Drouin, Killorn)

    Second Period
    4:18 TB Stamkos (27), (Stralman, Drouin)(PP)
    11:03 TB Paquette (9), (unassisted)(SH)
    17:39 TB Barberio (1), (Sustr, Johnson)

    Third Period

    Cedric Paquette, Bishop, and Jonathan Drouin were the game's three stars.

    News of the Tampa Bay Lightning's demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated. As has occurred several times so far this season, this team seems to have the ability to raise their level of play to match the challenge at hand. Tonight they faced a Red Wings team that has been playing really well and had taken a 1 point lead on the Lightning in the division after a really poor performance against cellar-dwelling Carolina coming out of the All-Star Break. Momentum-wise, this appeared to be a tough mountain for the Lightning to climb.

    But, in the end, the Lightning absolutely dominated the Red Wings. After a shaky First Period in which Ben Bishop had to play well to let his team overcome some turnover and defensive zone coverage issues, the Lightning took control of all facets of the game. Shots on goal. Scoring chances. Special teams play. They rolled the Red Wings, and sent Detroit (and their fans) back to Michigan with tails firmly tucked between their legs.

    Tonight's victory put the Lightning at the end of the 5th 10-game segment of the season at 66 points, 6 points ahead of the minimum they need to have to be comfortably on pace for the playoffs. They gained 2 additional insurance points in this segment and are slowly inching their way to a position where their focus can turn from clinching the playoffs to loftier aspirations. It starts with the next 10-game segment and our well-worn mantra: "12 in 10, do it again."

    Cedric Paquette had his first career hat trick and was +3 with 5 shots and 2 hits. He was also 67% on 12 draws. As noted a few games back, he looked due, and his goal against the Hurricanes appears to have opened up the floodgates in dramatic fashion. The man we affectionately call Dump Truck has 1 more game to go to graduate from prospect status on the website. I kind of wish he had hit the 41 game threshold for the season tonight, because tonight's performance would've been quite the mic drop moment for a prospect.

    Jonathan Drouin had a pair of helpers and was +2 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 16:49. He rebounded from an awful turnover early in the game that led to Bishop having to bail him out on the ensuing 2-on-0 chance given to the Wings. From there, though, he was dangerous offensively and his line with Paquette and Killorn put all kinds of pressure on the Wings all night long. Drouin's got 2 more games to go until graduation from prospect status on the site.

    Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot in 14:58. He got caught in no-man's land on Detroit's first goal, failing to pick up Helm as he circled from behind the Lightning net, and he had some defensive zone coverage issues. He's taken a little half step back in the past couple of games, which coupled with the improved play of Barberio tells me perhaps more seasoning needs to be in the cards for Nesterov.

Jeff Costello missed his fourth straight contest. The Everblades homestand continues this weekend against Greenville.

    Nikita Gusev, Khanty-Mansiysk, DNP
    Season totals: 45 GP, 18-10-28, +3, 12 PIM

    Fresh off an KHL All-Star Game appearance that featured 2 goals, 4 points, and a scintillating shootout move in the skills competition that became the toast of the internet, Nikita Gusev got the day off today in Yugra's 3-1 loss to Kazan. Kazan got a goal from ex-Thrashers/Jets first rounder Alexander Burmistrov in the victory. It was his 10th of the campaign.

    Hangover in Carolina.


    Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss. This was one of the rare nights Bishop was clearly outplayed by his counterpart at the other end of the rink. His failure to make the Third Period save on Tlusty on a puck he should've gotten really put a fork in any Lightning hopes to pull it out tonight.

    First Period
    0:22 CAR E. Staal (16), (J. Staal)
    6:05 CAR Gerbe (5), (Lindholm, Bellemore)
    14:05 TB Paquette (6), (Drouin, Sustr)

    Second Period
    8:27 CAR Faulk (9), (J. Staal)(PP)
    14:06 TB Boyle (10), (unassisted)(SH)

    Third Period
    7:53 CAR Tlusty (12), (Faulk, E. Staal)

    Tonight was just a confluence of a number of things, and it's probably important not to overreact too much to the result, even though it's clearly a loss against an opponent the team should beat. First, and most obviously, the team had an All-Star Break hangover. It took them 8 minutes to get into the game, and the 2 goals they spotted the Hurricanes in that time period turned out to be the difference. That was aided by some bad puck luck against the team. Carolina's first two goals were of the very greasy variety. And then you had Bishop playing really subpar relative to his usual standards. You just have to expect those three things won't happen again with higher stakes against Detroit next time out.

    Cedric Paquette had a goal and was +2 with 3 shots, 2 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 13:16. He was also 50% on draws. You could make an argument he was the Lightning's best player tonight, although that might be a low bar to clear. Paquette is now 2 games away from graduation from prospect status on the website.

    Jonathan Drouin had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 16:19. He came out flying tonight, especially in the First Period. He had 5 attempted shots on goal, and he was rewarded with increased ice time. Drouin is now 3 games away from graduation from prospect status on the website.

    Nikita Nesterov was -2 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 2 hits in 15:56. I don't think he was as bad as the -2 indicates, but I also don't think he was influencing the game positively to the same degree he was leading into the break.
