    You know what they say about, "All good things..."

    HFD-5
    NOR-1

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 5 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NOR Keller, (9) (Simek, Szczechura), 3:17

    HFD Soryal, (2) (Ambuhl, Potter), 18:32

    Second Period

    Third Period
    HFD Roche, (3) (Heikkinen, Locke), 5:18 (PP)

    Jim Johnson loses his first game in regulation as Head Coach of the Norfolk Admirals. His record drops to a still stellar 7-1-1-1.

    Unfortunately, in a playoff chase this close, you cannot afford to lose any games. Norfolk drops back to 7 points behind 2nd place Albany in the East Division. They'll remain in 3rd place, which is the last playoff spot in the East Division, by virtue of Syracuse crushing Adirondack tonight. However, the surging Crunch will now move into a tie with Adirondack at 2 points behind the Admirals.

    The situation with the crossover is much bleaker. Hartford (5th in the Atlantic) is now 5 points ahead of Norfolk and Bridgeport (6th in the Atlantic) is 1 point ahead. If Norfolk slips to 4th in the East Division, they must finish ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic to make it to the postseason.

    Harvard Crimson 5 @ Brown Bears 2
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM (tripping), 4 SOG
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 6-9-15, +1, 22 PIM

    With his two assists Friday, Killorn (pictured) set a new career high for points in a season at 15. He had 14 last year as a freshman in 30 games.

    No.17 Vermont Catamounts 5 @ Providence Friars 1

    A big upset win for the Broncos over the Irish. Witkowski was thrown out early in the third period for checking-from-behind. He now faces a possible suspension.

  • 5 years 3 weeks ago

    Jim Johnson is 7-0-1-1 as Head Coach.

    HFD-2
    NOR-3 (OT)

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    HFD Locke, (20) (Byers, Nightingale), 0:52 (SH)
    NOR Fadden, (3) (Fornataro, Wishart), 11:56 (PP)

    Third Period
    HFD Roche, (2) (Grachev, Nightingale), 8:45
    NOR Keller, (8) (McGinnis, Szczechura), 16:55

    Overtime
    NOR Szczechura, (7) (Lashoff, Simek), 3:50

    Paul Szczechura and Justin Keller were the game's first and second stars.

    After a slow start in the first period, the Admirals outshot Hartford 34-17 from the second period on. The only downside of the night is that they surrendered a point in the standings to Hartford, which still presents a crossover problem from the Atlantic Division.

    Norfolk still holds 3rd place in East Division with 52 points, and is now 1 game over .500. They have gained 2 points on 2nd place Albany and are now 5 points back of the River Rats with Albany holding a game in hand. They remain 2 points ahead of 4th place Adirondack and 5th place Syracuse with the Phantoms holding 2 games in hand. They gained 2 points on 6th place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, which is now 4 points back with the Pens holding 2 games in hand. The Admirals also maintained their 8 point lead on last place Binghamton with the Sens still holding 4 games in hand.

    OHL

    Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 3 @ Barrie Colts 2 (SO)

    Season Totals: 50 GP, 33-23-56, +32, 45 PIM

He’s one goal off his career high for goals (34), set that same year.

    Four point win.

    NYI-2
    TB-5

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the win. He's been so good over the past couple of weeks. He's helping the Lightning get wins when they're not on top of their game.

    First Period
    TB 14:15, Stamkos 30 (Foster, St. Louis)(PP)
    NYI 15:26, Moulson 21 (Gervais)

    Second Period
    NYI 9:12, Sim 8 (Weight, Park)
    TB 9:37, St. Louis 18 (Stamkos, Downie)
    TB 10:13, Lecavalier 15 (Tanguay, Hedman)

    Third Period
    TB 11:49, Stamkos 31 (Downie, Lundin)
    TB 19:22, Tanguay 9 (Veilleux, Lecavalier)

    Martin St. Louis is cold blooded. The Islanders absolutely worked their tails off to earn the 2-1 lead at 9:12 of the second, only to see Marty come down and score the short side goal 25 seconds later. He completely deflated the Isles in less than half a minute. That sort of thing was happening to the Lightning far too often in the first half of the season. It's good to see the Lightning being the victimizers instead of the victims.

    This just in: Steven Stamkos is the truth. He doesn't turn 20 until Sunday, and he just staked himself to his first 30 goal season as an NHLer... and then scored number 31 just for emphasis. Can you imagine how good he's going to be at 24-25 years old?

    Victor Hedman walked into the Forum -3 for the season. He walked out +1. Not bad.

    Sodertalje 3 @ Brynas 3
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Tie, 24/27, 2.79 GAA, .889 sv%
    Season totals: 1-1-1, 0 SO, 2.65 GAA, .908 sv%

    Petri Pakaslahti scored a goal for Sodertalje with the goaltender pulled for the sixth attacker and just 1:13 left in regulation to help stake his club to a 3-3 tie with Brynas. 2003 Avalanche 7th rounder Linus Videll had a pair of assists in the game for Sodertalje. There are only eight rounds remaining in the Swedish league's schedule. Sodertalje sits in 11th in the 12 team league and would miss the postseason if the playoffs started today. They are 6 points back of 8th place Frolunda, however, and in the Elitserien a regulation win is worth 3 points.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 6 @ PEI Rocket 1
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 49 GP, 11-35-46, +29, 48 PIM

    Barberio’s six-game point streak came to an end, though he still has 11 points in his last seven games.

    OHL All-Star Game

    East 17 vs. West 10
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 3-2-5, +5, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 49 GP, 33-23-56, +32, 45 PIM

    This was Hutchings’ third All-Star Game appearance, and he made the most of it, scoring once in each period and adding two assists. Niagara's Andrew Agozzino had four goals and was named Player of the Game for the East. Hutchings’ Barrie teammate Alex Pietrangelo was plus-9 in the game with four assists. Likely No.1 overall pick in 2010 Taylor Hall had just one assist for the West.

    WHL

    Lethbridge Hurricanes 1 @ Vancouver Giants 11
    C James Wright, VAN: 1-3-4, +4, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 2 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    Wright (pictured) set up the Giants' first goal and later scored their 11th goal, adding two more assists in between in an 11-1 Vancouver blowout win over Lethbridge. This was Wright’s first goal since returning to junior hockey from the NHL.

    So close to a signature victory...

    HER-3
    NOR-2 (SO)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 29 shots before allowing 2 of 5 shooters to defeat him in the shootout.

    First Period
    NOR Fadden, (2) (Parrish), 12:21
    HER Joudrey, (7) (Osala), 18:20

    Second Period
    NOR Lashoff, (5) (Hall, Keller), 7:42

    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    HER- Aucoin, Bourque
    NOR- Simek

    Tokarski was named the game's third star.

    Norfolk held Hershey, which has been routinely blowing teams out and hanging 6-8 goals on them in the process, to just 29 shots and 2 goals through 65 minutes, and came within 2:08 of beating the Bears in regulation. They matched the best team in the league shift for shift and shot for shot, and Head Coach Jim Johnson remains undefeated in regulation with a 6-0-2 mark.

    Norfolk, which is 3rd in the East Division, stays 2 points ahead of Adirondack, who lost in a shootout tonight to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. They'll lose 1 point to the Pens who are now also 2 points behind. Both Adirondack and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton have 2 games in hand on Norfolk. Norfolk also gains 1 point on idle Syracuse (4 points back) and Binghamton (8 points back). Syracuse now holds 1 game in hand and Binghamton holds 5 games in hand.

    Norfolk also climbed to within 7 points of 2nd place Albany with the River Rats holding 1 game in hand. If Norfolk were to climb all the way into 2nd in the division, they could avoid a first round matchup with Hershey. Why not dream big?

    In the crossover chase, Norfolk lost 1 point to Hartford, which sits in 5th in the Atlantic Division and is now 4 points back. They gained 1 point on idle 6th place Bridgeport and are now 2 points back of the Sound Tigers with 1 game in hand. If Norfolk finishes in 4th place in the East Division, they must finish ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic Division to still make the playoffs.
