    A power play worse than Tampa Bay's.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss. The number looks ugly, but I can't be mad about any of the three goals. The first was a clean faceoff loss and a seeing eye point shot through a ton of traffic. Second goal was a breakaway after an awful Gourde turnover where Kristers got the first shot but got beat on the rebound. Third goal was a 2-on-1 where Blujus failed to block the pass across and Blunden couldn't catch up to the goal scorer.

    First Period
    SYR Koekkoek, (2) (Kunyk, Gourde), 7:58
    RCH Leduc, (2) (Varone), 16:41

    Second Period
    RCH Reid, (5) , 7:42
    RCH Dalpe, (6) (Schaller, Bagnall), 11:34 (SH)

    Third Period
    RCH Irwin, (4) (Ellis), 18:40 (EN)

    Syracuse was 0-for-8 on the power play. Unlike Tampa Bay, though, which has plenty of finishers, I think the Crunch suffer from having only 1 or 2 pure finishers like Marchessault. As a consequence, they should be playing more of a shot/rebound style of basic PP, but that's not what they seemed interested in doing today.

Jeff Costello notched the primary assist on Florida's first goal late in the 2nd period, a power play marker that knotted the game at one apiece.

    Group A
    USA 3 vs. Slovakia 0
    Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

    Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin again led the way for Team USA with 1 goal and 1 assist in their 3-0 blanking of Slovakia. Canucks second rounder Thatcher Demko stopped all 17 shots he faced for USA's second consecutive shutout. Aside: don't read too much into Anthony DeAngelo's offensive production in the tournament. He's not playing the same role in the WJC's he does in the OHL, playing more of a defensive role and only seeing time on USA's second PP unit.

    Finland 1 vs. Canada 4
    Brayden Point, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Tournament totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM

    Dominik Masin, Czech Republic, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM

    It took an overtime marker by Bruins first rounder David Pastrnak for the Czech Republic to finally dispose of pesky Denmark 4-3. A pair of helpers by Jets first rounder Nikolaj Ehlers allowed the Danes to extend the game past regulation despite a steep shot disparity that reached 48 to 14 for the Czechs by the game's end. Note that Dominik Masin has been playing the net front role on the Czech power play in the tournament, setting screens and looking for deflections.

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Sherbrooke Phoenix 6

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 3-2-5, +1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG, 9/20 FO, 0 Hits, *First Star*
    With Sherbrooke: 5 GP, 5-7-12, -3, 4 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 21 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 26 GP, 6-20-26, -9, 18 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    Darcy extended his point streak to seven games while announcing his figurative “return” to the QMJHL. Darcy, who was in search of a pro contract this fall, struggled after coming back to Cape Breton and was eventually scratched and traded. His five-point game tonight gets him to a point-per-game pace for the season and Sherbrooke will enjoy the QMJHL Second-Team All-Star for the rest of the year. This is the player Cape Breton thought they were receiving when the Lightning decided to send Darcy back to the Q in September.

    Quebec Remparts 2 @ Chicoutimi Sagueneens 1 (SO)

    W Adam Erne, QUE: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 3 SOG, 16/26 FO, 2 Hits
    Season totals: 31 GP, 22-24-46, +19, 38 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

    Quebec won in a shootout for the second straight night. Julio Billia saved Erne’s attempt in the skills competition. Erne had a brief, three-game point streak snapped.

    Getting right...


    Ben Bishop allowed goals on the first 2 shots of the game. He stopped all 21 shots he faced thereafter for the victory.

    First Period
    4:28 TOR Santorelli (8), (Kadri, Phaneuf)
    7:47 TOR Lupul (9), (Bozak, Kessel)

    Second Period
    6:37 TB Callahan (12), (Stamkos, Hedman)(PP)
    9:46 TB Filppula (7), (Hedman, Callahan)

    Third Period
    11:05 TB Stamkos (20), (Carle)

    Steven Stamkos, Ryan Callahan, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars. Isn't it funny how when the Lightning's biggest stars get their games going, it takes the Lightning from a mediocre team to a team that can dominate like they did tonight (shot totals 41-23 for the Lightning)? This game was important in that it allowed the Lightning to get those star players on track, allowed them to exorcize some power play demons, and allowed them to make an example of an Atlantic Division foe they'll be fighting with for position for the next couple of months.

    Cedric Paquette was -1 with 4 shots, 3 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 13:39. I thought he played an excellent game on the PK, even springing Hedman for a First Period breakaway, and he was on the ice for the last shift of the game with the team protecting the one goal lead.

    Jonathan Drouin was +1 with 1 shot in 11:43. Stats tend not to show what he brings to the table in games. He drew a minor penalty in the First Period with a dazzling stickhandling display after falling down and then at the end of the Second Period nearly set up a goal after a world class keep-away exhibition in the offensive zone and a sharp snap pass to the side of the Leafs cage. He is slicker than an oil spill when he's got the puck.

    Dmitry Korobov had an assist in 20:22 of ice time in Mytischi's 3-2 loss to Riga. Ex-Lightning defenseman Matt Gilroy had a goal in defeat for Mytischi.

    Group A
    USA 6 vs. Germany 0
    Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

    Red Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin had 2 goals and 1 assist as Team USA smashed Germany 6-0. Rangers second rounder Brandon Halverson stopped a meager 14 shots for the shutout. The game also featured the first goal of the tournament for USA captain Jack Eichel, a sparkling wraparound in the Third Period of the game. Eichel is expected to go in the top two of the June draft.
