    Desperate for a win after their loss to Edmonton on Friday, Shawinigan came out flying and peppered London goalie Michael Houser with 32 shots, beating him with five. A 33rd shot was scored into an empty net. Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov created several chances for his Knights and nearly scored on a partial breakaway while shorthanded and being hit from both sides in the first period. He remains fearless around the net, throwing his body into traffic if it means it gives his team a better chance of scoring. He led London with 4 hits and was 8 of 11 on faceoffs. The slender-built Russian got caught back on defense while on a power play and was unable to block a Shawinigan shot which ended up in the back of the net for a shorthanded goal. He drew more praise for his skills from the TSN play-by-play crew and dazzled with a few stickhandling moves to get himself in position for a shot. He and former Lightning camper Seth Griffith are showing the chemistry they’ve had all season this week at the Memorial Cup. London plays next on Wednesday against WHL champion Edmonton.

    London defeated Saint John 5-3 Saturday night in the Memorial Cup opener for both teams. The loss was the Sea Dogs’ first in regulation in the post-season. London got two goals from Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov (pictured), who showed off his speed throughout the game. He led the team in shots as well. Predators prospect Austin Watson, the OHL playoff MVP, was first star for his goal and two assists for London. Danick Gauthier, also a Bolt prospect, led Saint John in faceoffs taken and tied for the team lead in hits with four. London will face tournament host Shawinigan on Sunday. (Note: We will have thoughts on the performances of both Namestnikov and Gauthier tomorrow due to DVR difficulties this evening.)

    Half way to the Calder Cup Finals.

    STJ-1
    NOR-3

    Norfolk Leads the Series 2-0

    Dustin Tokarski was cooler than the other side of the pillow with 30 saves on 31 shots. The numbers look great after two pretty good performances to start the Eastern Conference Finals: 6-2-0, 0 SO, 2.06 GAA, .924 save percentage. Nice.

    First Period
    NOR Panik, (3) (Oberg, Smith), 0:51

    Second Period
    STJ Albert, (3) (Postma, Murray), 1:51
    NOR Picard, (7) (Kostka, Angelidis), 15:38

    Third Period
    NOR Picard, (8) (Cote), 19:07 (EN)

    Alexandre Picard and Tokarski were the game's first and second stars. Picard moves out ahead in the race for playoff MVP, now sporting 8 goals and 14 points in 12 games.

    Panik attack, y'all.

    Trevor Smith has the quietest 12 points in 12 games I've ever seen.

    After a sloppy defensive performance in Game Four of the Connecticut series, the Admirals have really put the forcefield up. They've allowed just 3 goals in the past 4 games, and with the offensive weapons they have, no team is beating them in a seven game series if they continue to play this well in their own end. Now it's getting really exciting.

    Now Norfolk is playing with house money heading to St. John's for three games. All they have to do is win one of three up north to give themselves a great chance to take this series, and if they can manufacture a win in Game Three on Monday, they've got a chance to shorten this series and get themselves a big health and rest advantage on whoever is the Western Conference representative. Oklahoma City and Toronto split the first two games of their series, and could be in for a long struggle.

    Former QMJHL (Baie-Comeau, Moncton) star Matt Marquardt (pictured) scored at 13:49 of overtime to lift the Florida Everblades to a 4-3 home win over Las Vegas in Game 3 of the Kelly Cup Finals. Florida now leads the best-of-7 series, 2-1. Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche earned the primary assist on Justin Shugg’s game-tying goal with under four minutes left in regulation. Charles Landry and Kevin Quick were healthy scratches for the second straight game. Pat Nagle sat backup to John Muse, who stopped 32 of 35 shots. Game 4 is not until Tuesday night in southwest Florida.

    Norfolk passes the midpoint on their way up the mountain, but there's still a lot of climbing left to do.

    STJ-1
    NOR-6

    Norfolk Leads the Series 1-0

    Dustin Tokarski stopped 29 of 30 for the win as Jon Cooper again flexes his superior coaching instincts.

    First Period
    NOR Kostka, (2) (Oberg, Smith), 18:55 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Ouellet, (1) (Johnson, Barberio), 3:08 (PP)
    NOR Kostka, (3) (Devos, Angelidis), 11:04
    NOR Cote, (1) (Smith, Labrie), 13:42

    Third Period
    NOR Palat, (4) (Johnson, Conacher), 1:28
    STJ Redmond, (1) (Trotter, Postma), 2:11 (PP)
    NOR Aulie, (1) (Palat, Conacher), 7:21

    Mike Kostka, Cory Conacher, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Ondrej Palat, Trevor Smith, and Tyler Johnson also contributed multi-point performances.

    Alex Killorn was a scratch for, presumably, health reasons.

    Norfolk's players can enjoy this win for another 2-3 hours tonight, and then they need to erase it from the memory banks. The danger after a win like this is complacency. Norfolk's good, but they're not 5 goals better than the IceCaps on any given night, and they have to be ready to go Saturday night in Game Two. The IceCaps won't lick their wounds long, because they've got the shot for redemption on Saturday and they can be right in the spot they want to be with a 1-1 split, so Norfolk can't go into that game overconfident. They have to bring their lunch buckets and make sure they give themselves the best chance to get that 2-0 lead before heading north.

Seven different players scored for Florida. Lightning prospect Charles Landry and Norfolk property Kevin Quick were healthy scratches for Florida.

The game featured a brawl of sorts at the end of the second period that involved Lightning prospect Charles Landry and former Lightning draft pick Kevin Quick. Las Vegas goaltender Joe Fallon was named first star for stopping 32 of 33 shots. Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson was among those involved in pre-game festivities. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Las Vegas.
