Game Night Results

  • 5 years 30 weeks ago

    Trade deadline tomorrow.

    PIT-3
    TB-1

    Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the lost. He made some solid saves, but struggled with his rebound control. Still, I think if he gives the Lightning more games like this (.900+ save percentage and no softies) they'll be pretty satisfied.

    First Period
    07:38 PIT Kunitz (18), (Kennedy)
    12:23 TB Prospal (17), (Lecavalier, Malone)
    16:44 PIT Kunitz (19), (Sykora, Malkin)(PP)

    Second Period
    12:26 PIT Cooke (9), (Dupuis, Talbot)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Mark Recchi and Gary Roberts were held out pending likely trades or waiver claims tomorrow.

    Matt Smaby was +1 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 22:33.

    David Koci was -1 with 1 blocked shot in 6:43. Pittsburgh's third goal was on him.

    Brandon Segal had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 14:45. First impressions: he didn't look completely out of place as far his skating goes. If he gets more decisive when he goes to the wall, I think he could do some business up top.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 13:53.

    Didn't see that coming. Pleasant surprise.

    NOR-3
    BRI-1

    Riku Helenius allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the win.

    First Period
    BRI Smith, (25) (Walter, Kohn), 1:19
    NOR Rosehill, (5) (Simek, Zingoni), 7:41

    Second Period
    NOR Simek, (5) , 10:13

    Third Period
    NOR Bochenski, (24) (Keller, Konopka), 19:32 (EN)

    Juraj Simek and Helenius were the game's first and second stars.

    Norfolk managed to outshoot Bridgeport 43-28 in the game despite callups that left the team so depleted it had to sign forward Paul McIlveen and defenseman Wes Cunningham from Elmira of the ECHL just to flesh out their roster for the night.

    WHL
    Portland Winter Hawks 3 @ Tri-City Americans 5
    C Mitch Fadden, TC: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 57 GP, 36-37-73, +26, 49 PIM
    With TC: 48 GP, 34-34-68, +24, 41 PIM

    Fadden’s goal streak is now at nine games. He tied his career high for goals in a year – 36 – set two seasons ago with Lethbridge in 71 games. TC was playing without goaltender Chet Pickard, who was injured in the American's game against Spokane Saturday night when he was run over by Spokane's Ryan Letts - igniting a brawl - one of two on the night (Spokane's third and fourth of the year).

    Vancouver Giants 6 @ Chilliwack Bruins 3
    C James Wright, VAN: 0-1-1, +1, 5 PIM (Fighting vs. Brandon Manning)
    Season totals: 64 GP, 19-25-44, +21, 46 PIM

    Wright now has points in five of his last six games. Evander Kane had a goal and a fight.

    Note: There were two QMJHL prospects in action, Michael Ward (CB 4 A-B 3) and Mark Barberio (SHW 7 MCT 0), but the Q site has made some upgrades and the game summaries and stats aren't working at the moment.

    It was 80's night in Calgary. Great for the fans. Bad if you're a goaltender.

    TB-8
    CGY-6

    Mike McKenna allowed 6 goals on 39 shots for the... win? "Look Ma, I'm Grant Fuhr!"

    First Period
    11:07 TB Artyukhin (5), (unassisted)
    15:44 CGY Iginla (25), (Moss, Cammalleri)(PP)

    Second Period
    01:19 TB St. Louis (21), (Stamkos, Recchi)
    08:07 CGY Conroy (7), (Phaneuf, Iginla)
    13:02 CGY Cammalleri (33), (Moss, Iginla)(PP)
    14:19 CGY Lundmark (2), (Sarich, Lombardi)
    14:57 TB Lecavalier (26), (Murphy, Melichar)
    16:14 TB Stamkos (13), (Recchi, St. Louis)
    18:27 TB Prospal (16), (Roberts, Eminger)(PP)

    Third Period
    00:14 CGY Iginla (26), (Conroy, Vandermeer)
    02:39 TB Malone (22), (Recchi, Lecavalier)(PP)
    08:32 TB Lecavalier (27), (Recchi, Murphy)(PP)
    16:46 CGY Bertuzzi (15), (Iginla, Cammalleri)(PP)
    19:28 TB St. Louis (22), (Recchi)(EN)

    You know, in a couple of days the composition of this roster is going to change quite a bit. Some of these veterans are going to be shuffling out and there's going to be some young guys shuffling in. So, it's nice to see these guys get one last game like this on the road together. Particularly, old man Recchi dropped 5 assists in what may be his second to last game in a Lightning uniform, which is a heck of a thing for a 41 year old player. I wouldn't mind seeing him brought back as a free agent in the offseason, but it's hard to know what the future holds.

    The league office has to be wishing they could bottle a game like this, because it had a little of everything that is the best of the game. It was like the golden days of the 80's again with offense flowing like wine, mixed in with big hits and some fisticuffs as well. I'm hard pressed to think of a more entertaining game I've watched in Lightning history. Bigger games? Sure. More satisfying? Definitely. More fun? Even the Lightning's cup clinching Game Seven victory was more an exhale of relief to me than a sheer joy to watch like this was.

    Matt Smaby was -1 with 2 hits and 3 blocked shots in 21:35. Iginla's goal to tie the game at 5 at the start of the third period was on Smaby on a really bad turnover. This wasn't a game for the defense and goaltenders, anyway.

    David Koci was +1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 8:42. I think a goal or a colossal brawl by Koci between he and Vandermeer was about the only thing that was missing from this contest.

    Norfolk's hopes of a winning season may have died on Albany ice.

    NOR-2
    ALB-4

    Riku Helenius allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    ALB Rodney, (3) (Sutter, Helminen), 10:21 (PP)
    ALB Angelidis, (14) (Rodney), 15:01

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NOR Szczechura, (13) (Lundin, Segal), 2:43
    NOR Zingoni, (3) (Henley), 5:46
    ALB Carson, (4) (Petruzalek, Dodge), 10:14
    ALB Petruzalek, (15) (Flood, Rodney), 19:52 (EN)

    The one thing that Norfolk absolutely could not have was an 0-3-0 weekend, and that's unfortunately exactly what happened, pushing the club back to 6 games under .500. That's probably a bridge too far for a club with just 20 games left to play.
