    Wall-cox rises up.

    SYR-3 (OT)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 19 shots for the win. That's still not a warm and fuzzy stat line in terms of save percentage, but Wilcox has needed a performance like this since getting the #1 job in full with Gudlevskis being recalled. He made a lot of key situational saves tonight to make a victory possible.

    First Period
    16:17 SYR Brodeur (1), (Condra, Conacher)(SH)
    16:43 SYR Gourde (9), (unassisted)(SH)
    18:47 HER Mitchell (4), (Lewington, Stephenson)

    Second Period
    1:20 HER Thomas (14), (Djoos, Bourque)(PP)

    Third Period

    3:01 SYR Gourde (10), (Witkowski, Taormina)

    Yanni Gourde and Erik Condra were the game's first and second stars. Luke Witkowski was hosed given that feathery soft give-and-go he worked to make Gourde's game winner happen.

    Syracuse, at least in terms of overall balance of play, seemed to be in a more dominant position tonight with the return of a lot of key regulars like Conacher, Condra, and Richard from Tampa Bay now that they've had some time to get re-acclimated. The win moves Syracuse out to a 2 point lead in the North Division, and just as importantly this was a quality victory against a good Hershey team from the other side of the conference where the teams seem a little stronger, on paper, so far this year.

    Oleg Sosunov is no longer listed on Loko Jr.'s roster as of this weekends two game set against Spartak Jr. Bolt Prospects will do some digging to see whether Sosunov has been demoted to MHL-B or if another transaction is in the offing.

    Nizhnekamsk 0 vs. St. Petersburg 4
    Nikita Gusev, St. Petersburg, 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Season totals: 38 GP, 18-33-51, +30, 6 PIM

    Nikita Gusev had a garbage time power play goal, a game-opening power play assist, and an even strength assist sandwiched in between in SKA's 4-0 blanking of Nizhnekamsk. Gusev played 17:50 in the match and had a game high 7 shots on goal. The 3 point effort sets a new career high in points for Gusev at 51 through 38 games, which surpasses his total of 49 points in 56 games last year. He moves back to third in the KHL in scoring behind only Sergei Mozyakin of Magnitogorsk and his teammate and former NHL'er Ilya Kovalchuk. Ex-Isles pick Mikko Koskinen turned aside all 30 shots he faced for SKA for the shutout victory.

    Schedule and injuries victimize the Lightning.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the loss before being lifted for Kristers Gudlevskis, who stopped all 3 shots he saw in garbage time. I wasn't in love with the 1st and 4th goals Vasilevskiy gave up, not that this atrocity was his fault.

    First Period
    0:55 WSH Carlson (2), (Alzner, Wilson)
    15:42 WSH Carlson (3), (Johansson, Backstrom)

    Second Period
    10:48 WSH Ovechkin (15), (Orlov)

    Third Period
    8:33 WSH Johansson (13), (Backstrom)

    No chance. The Lightning got to Washington at 2:30 am last night after their game against St. Louis already hobbled with multiple injuries. You had guys like Bournival who have played something like 6 of the last 8 days along with the travel. Stralman looked like he was completely running on fumes. This was a schedule loss, plain and simple, and it was made worse by fatigue leading to multiple injuries. Drouin and Coburn went out. Hedman went out and came back in. The Lightning would've been better off not getting of the plane and declaring this a no contest. This schedule in the first three months of the year has been as vicious as I think I've seen in the league for a Lightning team. They've been grinded down into the ground and they just collapsed under the weight of it tonight.

    Unfortunately, halfway through this fourth ten game segment of the season, the Lightning need 7 of a possible 10 remaining points in the segment just to tread water and not dig their hole deeper in their playoff pursuit. Fortunately, the Lightning do have a glut of home games and hopefully a glut of guys returning from injury to try to make some hey with over the course of those five games.

    Brayden Point was -1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 19:35.

    Slater Koekkoek was -1 with 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 15:34.

    Tanner Richard was -1 with 2 hits and he was 38% on 13 draws in 16:07.

    You get a minus. And, you get a minus. And, YOU get a minus!
