    Brayden Point was the game's third star.

    Anaheim was able to pull off a difficult formula tonight playing a pretty perfect road game. They played a very determined, structured defensive game to clog up the neutral zone. So, they made it difficult for the Lightning to gain the zone and they kept the Lightning out to the perimeter as much as possible. They got great goaltending by Miller and they got some puck luck on the game-winning goal. It's not often an opposing team can pull this off the way the Ducks did tonight, but they managed to make it stand up. It happens. One of 82.

    Mathieu Joseph had 1 shot in 9:25.

    Anthony Cirelli had 1 shot and 1 hit in 12:42 and was 38% on 8 draws.

    Adam Erne was -1 with 4 hits in 10:59.

    Erik Cernak was +1 with 2 shots, 5 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 18:10.

    Rensselaer Engineers 2 @ UMass-Lowell River Hawks 5

    F Ryan Lohin, UML: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 11 SOG
    Season Totals: 10 GP, 6-5-11, +3, 2 PIM
    ’17-‘18 Totals: 36 GP, 9-16-25, -2, 26 PIM

    Turnabout is fair play as the old saying goes. After RPI rolled into the Tsongas Center and beat UML on Friday night, the River Hawks returned the favor Sunday afternoon at the Houston Field House in Troy, NY. Lightning prospect Ryan Lohin fired a game-high and career-high 11 shots (no one else had more than 4) and extended his point streak to six games with a goal and an assist in UML’s 5-2 drubbing of the Engineers. UML improves to 7-6-1 (3-3-1 HEAST) and takes next weekend off before another home-and-home series the weekend of Dec 7th against Boston University.

    Another no-contest as Lightning make swift work of Devils.

    NJ-2
    TB-5

    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 35 shots for the victory. One of those goals should've been waved off for goaltender interference but, frankly, the league was trying to artificially inject some interest in the game. The second was a goal off the rush Domingue probably wants back.

    First Period
    3:19 TB Killorn (3), (Joseph)
    7:21 TB Point (16), (Kucherov, Hedman)(PP)
    9:15 TB Johnson (10), (Point, Kucherov)
    9:39 NJ Noesen (2), (Seney)
    11:25 TB Paquette (4), (Callahan, Girardi)

    Second Period
    8:30 TB Point (17), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    5:21 NJ Bratt (1), (unassisted)

    Brayden Point, Nikita Kucherov, and Ryan McDonagh were the game's three stars. Brayden Point's going to mess around and win himself a Hart Trophy at this rate.

    That's back-to-back games where the Lightning absolutely blew the competition off the ice from the word "go" and unlike the Chicago game you can't ascribe this one as much to the lack of quality in the opponent. Yes, New Jersey's essentially a one line team. But, they're far more organized and professional than the Blackhawks are right now and Tampa Bay still completely dismantled them in less than twenty minutes.

    Mathieu Joseph had a helper and was +2 with 3 shots and 1 hit in 11:46. Made a great hustle play to set up the opening goal and later in the game nearly had a goal of his own with Schneider making a lucky stop off the shaft of his goal stick.

    Anthony Cirelli was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 14:12. He was also 38% on 13 draws.

    Adam Erne had 1 shot and 2 hits in 10:44.

    Erik Cernak was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 17:00.

    #9 Providence Friars 4 @ #7 Denver Pioneers 4 OT

    F Cole Guttman, DEN: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 9/13 FO, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 7-4-11, +10, 6 PIM

    The freshmen stars shone Saturday night in the back half of the weekend series between the 9th ranked Friars and the 7th ranked Pioneers, with these two teams battling to a 4-4 draw. Golden Knight freshman prospect Jack Dugan opened the scoring early in the 1st for Providence, but Bolt prospect Cole Guttman struck back a scant 7 seconds later to knot the score at 1-1. It was Guttman’s 7th goal of the season and vaulted him as the sole goal scoring leader among NCAA Division I freshman. Guttman was 69% on draws and earned 2nd Star honors for the game. The Friars responded early in the 2nd with a pair of goals to take a 3-1 lead, the latter a power play marker by Kasper Bjorkqvist (PIT, 2016 2nd round pick) that was assisted by Dugan, who now leads all Div. I freshman in points (14) and power play points (7). But the resilient Denver squad battled back later in the 2nd, striking for a pair of power play goals of their own in the span of 42 seconds, the first of which tallied by Flames prospect Emilio Pettersen who leads Div. I freshmen in power play goals (4), power play points (7) and second only to Dugan in points (14). Both goalies would close the door in the last half of the game to preserve the tie with Friar netminder and Oiler prospect Hayden Hawkey (MTL, 2014 6th round pick) making 34 saves and Pioneer backstop and Red Wing prospect Filip Larsson totaling 42 saves. Denver’s season record now stands at 7-3-2 (3-3 NCHC), with the Pioneers taking next weekend off before hitting the road to Grand Forks Dec 7th for a two-game NCHC tilt against North Dakota.

    Harvard Crimson 4 vs #17 Cornell Big Red 1

    D Alex Green, COR: did not play
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -4, 0 PIM

    Bolt prospect Alex Green missed his sixth straight game Saturday night, absent from the Frozen Apple rival game between Harvard and Cornell at Madison Square Garden. After the Big Red got out to a 1-0 1st period lead, the Crimson snapped off the next four behind a pair of goals from Henry Bowlby (undrafted) and three assists from Casey Dornbach (undrafted). Dornback, former Edina high school captain and teammate of Bolt prospect Sammy Walker, leads all NCAA Div. I freshmen in power play assists (7), power play points (7), and second among freshmen in assists (10). Cornell drops to 5-4 (3-1 ECAC) on the season and looks ahead next weekend to a pair of road ECAC conference games against Dartmouth and a rematch against Harvard.

    Michigan State Spartans 4 @ Minnesota Gophers 2

    D Ryan Zuhlsdorf , MINN: did not play
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    F Sammy Walker, MINN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 4/9 FO
    Season Totals: 11 GP, 3-6-9, +9, 6 PIM

    Tyler Sheehy (undrafted) scored a pair of power play goals midway through the 2nd period to give the Gophers a 2-0 lead over the Spartans Saturday night in Big 10 conference play, but Michigan State stormed back with four straight, led by the undrafted Taro Hirose with a goal and a two assists. For Hirose, that’s good for 3rd in points (19) among all NCAA Division I men. Lightning prospect Ryan Zuhlsdorf missed his third consecutive game as Minnesota dropped to 4-6-1 (2-2 Big Ten) on the season. The road gets tougher next weekend for the struggling Gophers as they welcome 5th ranked Ohio State to the 3M Arena for a pair of Big 10 conference games.

    #19 Miami Redhawks 3 @ New Hampshire Wildcats 3 OT

    G Ty Taylor, UNH: did not play
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-1, 3.38 GAA, 0.874 SV%

    Bolt prospect Ty Taylor sat backup to Wildcats starter Mike Robinson (SJS, 2015 3rd round pick), who allowed just one goal and stopped 33 Redhawks shots as New Hampshire upset 19th ranked Miami. After a 1-0 start by the Redhawks, the Wildcats reeled off four unanswered for just their 2nd win of the season. New Hampshire’s record improves to 2-6-4 (1-3-2 HEAST) with a two-game series on the horizon next weekend in ECAC conference play against #9 Providence.

    Ingram and Cory Conacher were the game's first and third stars.

    Alex Barre-Boulet quietly has assembled a seven game point streak that continued tonight. He's just a touch below a point a game at 15 through 17 appearances.

    Syracuse is now 9-0-1 in their last ten games, which has propelled them into second place in the North Division. They sit three points back of division leader Rochester with a couple of games in hand and they've moved three points clear now of Cleveland and Utica in the process.

    #9 Providence Friars 1 @ #7 Denver Pioneers 3

    F Cole Guttman, DEN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 5/13 FO
    Season Totals: 11 GP, 6-4-10, +9, 6 PIM

    Denver goalie Devin Cooley (undrafted) made 39 saves as the #7 Pioneers fought off a tough 9th ranked Providence team. Denver was led offensively by Tyler Ward (undrafted), setting up Colin Staub (undrafted) on the power play in the 1st, and then scoring an insurance marker just past the midpoint of the 3rd to seal the Pioneer victory. The Pioneers improve to 8-2-2 (3-2-1 NCHC) on the season, and look for the sweep Saturday night in a rematch against the Friars.

    Michigan State Spartans 2 @ Minnesota Gophers 7

    D Ryan Zuhlsdorf , MINN: did not play
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    ’17-‘18 Totals: 38 GP, 0-9-9, +1, 40 PIM

    F Sammy Walker, MINN: 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 2/8 FO, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 10 GP, 3-6-9, +9, 6 PIM

    Bolt prospect Sammy Walker extended his point streak to 4 games, notching his 3rd of the season and adding two assists en route to Third Star honors as the Gophers unleash a season of frustration on the hapless Spartans. Minnesota got a pair of goals from both Tyler Sheehy (undrafted) and Brannon McManus (undrafted), and Brent Gates (ANA, 2015 3rd round pick) added three assists. Don't look now but after a bit of a slow start, Walker is 2-4-6 in his last 3 games. Fellow Lightning prospect Ryan Zuhlsdorf missed his second straight game, leading to speculation he may have been injured in that first game last weekend against St. Lawrence. The Gophers improve to 4-5-1 (2-1 Big Ten) on the season and draw a rematch Saturday night against these Spartans.

    Rensselaer Engineers 2 @ UMass-Lowell River Hawks 1

    F Ryan Lohin, UML: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 0/1 FO
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 5-4-9, +1, 2 PIM
    ’17-‘18 Totals: 36 GP, 9-16-25, -2, 26 PIM

    Will Reilly (PIT, 2017 7th round pick) scored in the first to give RPI an early 1-0 lead, and then setup Jakub Lacka (undrafted) in the 3rd for what would be the game-winner power play score as the Engineers bested the River Hawks at the Tsongas Center in Lowell. Lightning prospect Ryan Lohin fired a game-high 6 shots and extended his five game point streak, setting up Jon McDonald (undrafted) early in the 3rd for the 1-1 equalizer. UML drops to 6-6-1 (3-3-1 HEAST) on the season and travels to Troy, NY for the back half of this weekend home-and-home against RPI on Sunday afternoon.

    #19 Miami Redhawks 3 @ New Hampshire Wildcats 3 OT

    G Ty Taylor, UNH: T, 64:14 MINS, 3 GA, 25 SVS
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-1, 3.38 GAA, 0.874 SV%

    Bolt prospect Ty Taylor battled to a 3-3 draw against Miami netminder Ryan Larkin (undrafted) in this 3rd start for UNH on the season. Taylor maintained a 2-1 1st period lead until early in the 3rd when the Redhawks scored twice in the span of about 90 seconds to take a 3-2 lead. But Taylor shut the door from that point on, giving his team a chance to knot the score with 34 seconds left in the game to force overtime and eventually hold a 19th ranked Miami squad to a draw. Angus Crookshank (OTT, 2018 5th round pick) led UNH with a goal and an assist. It was the Wildcats fourth tie of the season, their record now at 1-6-4 (1-3-2 HEAST) on the season, and these same two teams tangle again Saturday night to complete the weekend non-conference series.

    Lightning dispose of the corpse of the Blackhawks. Quickly.

    CHI-2
    TB-4

    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. He got the big goal support in the First Period and then stood up to the onslaught of score effects from there on out.

    First Period
    0:29 TB Johnson (8), (Kucherov, Cernak)
    7:15 TB Johnson (9), (Point, Kucherov)
    10:05 TB Point (15), (Kucherov, Cernak)
    11:10 CHI Anisimov (3), (Debrincat, Schmaltz)
    14:52 TB Callahan (3), (McDonagh)

    Second Period
    18:49 CHI Toews (11), (Keith)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Nikita Kucherov, Tyler Johnson, and Brayden Point were the game's three stars.

    Chicago's awful. I don't think there's another team in the league that's as soft defensively as Chicago is. It felt like if the Lightning had stayed interested for 60 minutes they'd have been able to hit double-digits in goals. As it was, this game was over and done before the final horn for the First Period sounded.

    Mathieu Joseph was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 11:21.

    Anthony Cirelli was -1 1 shot and 1 hit in 13:23. He was also 43% on 7 draws.

    Adam Erne was +1 with 2 shots in 12:26.

    Erik Cernak had 2 helpers and was +3 with 2 shots, 5 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:45. There's not a darn thing wrong with that stat line.

    Sarah McLachlan very upset with Stamkos for repeatedly abusing Cats tonight.

    FLA-3
    TB-7

    Louis Domingue allowed 3 goals on 43 shots for the victory. The first goal he allowed was of the Charmin soft variety, but he really started to settle down and get in a groove as the game progressed. He didn't face a ton of A-quality chances, but he did face a steady volume of shots that I thought he got more and more comfortable handling as the night wore on. Sweet, sweet goal support never hurts either.

    First Period
    0:59 TB Joseph (5), (unassisted)
    2:19 FLA Brouwer (5), (Haley, Sceviour)
    9:22 TB Kucherov (9), (Hedman, Miller)(PP)

    Second Period
    2:37 TB Gourde (9), (Stamkos, Miller)
    4:45 TB Erne (3), (Kucherov, McDonagh)
    18:25 FLA Barkov (7), (Huberdeau, Yandle)(PP)

    Third Period
    1:30 TB Stamkos (7), (Kucherov, McDonagh)
    3:21 TB McDonagh (2), (Stamkos, Miller)
    14:25 TB Girardi (1), (Hedman, Stamkos)
    16:25 FLA Hoffman (10), (Yandle, Huberdeau)(PP)

    Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, and Domingue were the game's three stars.

    Fair to say that was Stamkos' best game of the season, and it's not even close. On a night honoring Martin St. Louis' HOF induction, his former linemate Stamkos put on a show that reminded us all what a fine wine vintage Stamkos is. Jon Cooper broke up the Stamkos/Kucherov duo at even strength and both proceeded to have better than typical games with Stamkos exploding for four points in an absolute tour de force. That smell you smell is the rest of the NHL needing to change their undergarments after realizing that the Lightning were leading the East with a considerably subpar Stamkos and Kucherov. If they start playing to past standards and get some guys back off IR, they go from really good to great in a hurry.

    Mathieu Joseph had a goal and was +1 with 5 shots in 11:14. Could've easily had three or four goals in this game as the Panthers D looked like glorified turnstiles trying to deal with Joseph's speed around the corner.

    Anthony Cirelli was +1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 14:02. He was also 67% on 12 draws.

    Adam Erne had a goal, 4 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 2 hits in 11:51. Those penalties were, well, let's just say the refs were trying to give the Panthers trophies for trying tonight.

    Erik Cernak was +3 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 17:03.

    Surging Crunch move into a tie for second in the North Division.

    SYR-4
    BNG-1

    Connor Ingram allowed just 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory, including some highlight reel variety stops in the mix.

    First Period
    3:33 BNG Pietila (5), (Gignac)(SH)

    Second Period
    9:41 SYR Verhaeghe (6), (Conacher, Barre-Boulet)(PP)
    10:38 SYR Katchouk (2), (Dumont)
    17:23 SYR Andreoff (8), (Conacher, Verhaeghe)(PP)

    Third Period
    19:06 SYR Conacher (8), (unassisted)(EN)

    Carter Verhaeghe and Boris Katchouk were the game's first and third stars.

    The Crunch are now unbeaten in their last eight games including seven wins in that span. Those 15 points have moved Syracuse from the out house in the North Division to just five points back of leading Rochester with two games in hand on the Americans.

    What I'm saying is, Ben Groulx is some kind of powerful warlock.
