    The Syracuse Crunch took it to the Charlotte Checkers in the first 19 minutes.

    Crunch captain Erik Condra netted a goal in his long-awaited return, Jamie McBain had a hand in three goals and the Syracuse power play converted twice. The Checkers made it close late in the second period, but the Crunch held on to win, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we came out strong and overall, we played a very good game,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “They’re a good team. probably the best team we faced this year with Toronto. They have skill on every line. They play with a lot of poise and they make plays with the puck. It’s very impressive the way Charlotte is playing. Tonight we were a good team.”

    With only one game on the weekend docket for the Syracuse Crunch, the organization reassigned Lightning prospect goalie Connor Ingram and defenseman Matthew Spencer to the Adirondack Thunder for the weekend to get some playing time. Ingram responded with a 33 save effort, allowing just one goal on the road in Kalamazoo, earning First Star honors. Syracuse depth forward Ty Lomey earned Second Star honors with a power play goal in the third period. The Thunder draw the rematch against the K-Wings Saturday night, before a matinee Sunday in Brampton against the Beast.

    Lightning opens gates of hell in the First Period in Los Angeles. No Kings spared.

    TB-5
    LA-2

    Much maligned Petr Budaj allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the win. He made a critical save on Koptar early on in the game on a bang bang play that led to Kucherov's breakaway goal. That's making the situational save you need for the W.

    First Period
    9:27 TB Kucherov (16), (Stamkos, Koekkoek)
    10:01 TB Killorn (2), (Girardi, Johnson)
    10:35 TB Hedman (2), (Gourde, Palat)
    11:29 TB Stamkos (8), (Killorn, Kucherov)(PP)

    Second Period
    17:31 LA Toffoli (8), (Kopitar, Muzzin)

    Third Period
    8:39 LA Fantenberg (1), (Brown, Laich)
    12:59 TB Namestnikov (8), (Hedman, Kucherov)

    Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars.

    Petr Budaj makes a big situational save, Kucherov scores on a breakaway at the other end, and the Lightning just erupt all over the Kings in a game that was over after less than a dozen minutes. The first 37 or so minutes tonight were just one long replay of the Second Period dominance the Lightning displayed against San Jose last night. Honestly, were it not for Quick, the Kings would've easily let up 8 or 9 goals tonight as the Lightning had something like 23 scoring chances through the first two periods. Quick almost gave the Kings a chance, but a well played replay challenge by Cooper and the Gang at the end of the Second Period helped the team maintain a 3 goal advantage through 40 minutes and it was off to garbage time for the second night in a row. And, to all a good night.

    Things that'll make your mind explode: Namestnikov's on a pace for about 39 goals. Not a typo.

    Tonight's victory means the Lightning are within an eyelash of clinching their second successful 10-game segment of the year. After collecting a stylish 17 points in 10 games to start the year, they have 11 points in this second segment with 3 more games to play. So, with 1 more point they'll have nabbed the 12 in 10, and anything after that is just more insurance points in the bank. It's a beautiful thing.

    Slater Koekkoek had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot in 6:22.

    Yanni Gourde had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and he was 60% on 5 draws. As always, the Stamkos line provides the bulk of the firepower, but the Palat/Point/Gourde line sets the pace for the Lightning.

    Gabriel Dumont had 3 shots and 2 hits and was 63% on 8 draws in 9:56 as he jumped in to replace an injured Ryan Callahan in the lineup.

    Jake Dotchin was +1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 16:45.

    Mikhail Sergachev had 3 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 14:01.

    Lightning speed slays Sharks.

    TB-5
    SJ-1

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 33 shots for the victory. He conceded an unlucky goal on the first shift of the game on a puck that deflected off Callahan's stick. After that, he made two or three ridiculous saves in the First Period to allow the team to find their equilibrium, after which the rest of his night was thankfully light work.

    First Period
    0:25 SJ Donskoi (5), (Thornton, Pavelski)
    7:17 TB Dotchin (1), (Point, Gourde)

    Second Period
    0:44 TB Kucherov (15), (Namestnikov, Stamkos)
    9:21 TB Koekkoek (3), (Gourde, Stralman)
    12:00 TB Namestnikov (6), (Stamkos, Kucherov)

    Third Period
    6:14 TB Namestnikov (7), (Kucherov, Stamkos)(PP)

    Nikita Kucherov, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

    San Jose had no answer for the quickness of the Tampa Bay Lightning. None. The Lightning not only can outskate San Jose man for man, but they moved the puck so quickly and crisply, especially in the Second Period, the Sharks had no prayer. No prayer. The Lightning won pretty much every 50/50 puck and then just carved up the slower Sharks defense. Cooper will have some coachable things if he wants them because the Lightning had some bad habits creep in during garbage time in the Third Period, but other than that this was a clinic, on balance.

    Slater Koekkoek had a goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, 2 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 9:14. His goal was a short side softie allowed by Martin Jones, who looked awful tonight en route to being lifted after two periods.

    Yanni Gourde had 2 helpers and was +2 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 4 blocked shots in 17:46. He was also 17% on 6 draws. The Stamkos and Kucherov line get all the plaudits, but I thought the line with Gourde and Point along with Palat were almost as good tonight and were crucial to helping the Lightning get their footing back after falling behind after the first shift tonight.

    Jake Dotchin had his first NHL goal and was +1 with 2 shots, 2 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 14:01. He got it the way you'd want it: blew a slapshot through the goaltender for his first in the bigs.

    Mikhail Sergachev was +1 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 15:26.

    Mathieu Joseph was told to not worry about the statistics.

    The Syracuse rookie, who averaged more than a point per game in junior, was held to a single assist over his first nine professional games. After a meeting with Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, Joseph recorded four points in two games against the Rocket in front of friends and family in Laval.

    Joseph is taking Groulx’s words to heart as he adapts to the pro game.

    “He told me that he wanted me to have fun on the ice,” Joseph said. “My confidence wasn’t really there and I was trying to analyze the game too much. He gave me a little bit of a boost of confidence.”
