    Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Quebec Remparts 6
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-6-8, +5, 16 PIM

    Patrick Roy’s Remparts scored the game’s final four goals for a comeback win over Gatineau. Janosik had 35 points in 63 games last year, plus 7 in 10 playoff games (5 goals), but is off to a quiet start this season with 8 in 22.


    Team WHL 2 vs. Team Russia 5
    RW Brett Connolly, WHL: 1-0-1, 0 PIM

    Russia finish the six-game Canada-Russia Subway Superseries with a 4-1-1 record versus the CHL for their first series win in the eight-year history of the event. They had won just two games in the series – in 2004 and ’07 – prior to this year. Lightning prospect Brett Connolly, playing in front of his home crowd, scored for the WHL. At that time, however, the Dub was already down 4-0 in the third period. Calvin Pickard (Avalanche) of the Seattle Thunderbirds stopped 19 of 23 shots in a losing cause for Team WHL.

    Maybe the craziest game I've ever seen.


    Dan Ellis allowed 4 goals on 10 shots before giving way to Mike Smith, who allowed 3 goals on 22 shots to get the win in relief.

    First Period
    04:21 PHI Nodl (4), Zherdev (1), Richards (12)
    05:03 PHI Zherdev (6), Carle (5), Richards (13)

    18:59 TB Stamkos (19), Purcell (8), St Louis (19)(PP)

    Third Period
    05:19 TB Thompson (3), Tyrell (2), Bergenheim (6)

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    What'd we see tonight? 1.) 15 goals? Check. 2.) A hat trick for #91 on just three amazing shots? Three shots. Three kills. Check. 3.) Brett Clark scoring a goal by shooting it THROUGH the net? Check. 4.) Matt Roy darned near putting a guy in the hospital? Check. 5.)And the biggest shocker of all: in a game with 15 goals your winner is scored by... Nate Thompson? Nate bleeping Thompson!?

    Mind you, there were a few things this game could have used to spice it up a little more: 1.) Mike Smith scoring an empty net goal and then doing snow angels in his crease to celebrate. 2.) Creating a timewarp where ex-Lightning player Kurtis Foster breaks a pane of glass and/or Evgeny Artyukhin puts a player through the glass. 3.) Steve Downie inciting a riot/bench clearer that ends with the stands being set on fire. 4.) For no good reason, Rudy Poeschek and Paul Laus happening to be in attendance and getting in a Pier 6 brawl at the nacho stand. 5.) A live penguin sliding out onto the ice and halting play. Baseball has squirrels and birds. I feel hockey should have the occassional stray penguin halting play. 6.) I like this one the best. Coach Fleming hitting Hulk Hogan with a steel chair while the ref isn't looking so Guy Boucher can get the 1-2-3 at center ice and win the championship belt. Just some suggestions to Gary Bettman and Lightning management on how to improve on the already unbelievable product we saw tonight.

    Johan Harju was -2 in 4:45. You couldn't swing a cat without hitting a minus in this game tonight.

    Mathieu Roy was -1 with a hit that almost put Darroll Powe in traction in 4:39.

    Dana Tyrell had a helper on the game winner and 2 shots and 2 blocked shots in 11:39. Andrej Meszaros is a dead man the next time the Lightning play the Flyers for trying to take out Tyrell's knees in the third period, especially considering Tyrell had major knee surgery less than 2 years ago.

    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Win, 18/20, 2.00 GAA, .900 sv%
    Season totals: 10 GP, 1-6-0, 0 SO, 3.16 GAA, .886 sv%

    Trail Smoke Eaters 3 @ Penticton Vees 6
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-2-2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 23 GP, 9-14-23, 8 PIM

    O’Donnell earned Second Star for the second straight game and now has 5 points in 2 games since playing for Canada West at the WJACs. After a slow start, he’s up to a point-per-game pace for the Vees.


    Belleville Bulls 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 8
    C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-1-1, -2, 2 PIM (holding stick)
    Season totals: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -2, 31 PIM
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play.
    Season totals: 18 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 2 PIM

    Panik is still more than a point-per-gamer, even though he has “just” 7 points in his last 12 games. Schemitsch missed his third game due to an “upper body injury.” He’s listed as day-to-day. Belleville had leads of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 in this game before the Attack exploded for a snowman.


    Team WHL 6 vs. Team Russia 7 (SO)
    RW Carter Ashton, WHL: 1-0-1, 2 PIM (slashing)

    The WHL scored the game’s first 3 goals, but allowed its last 3 and eventually lost in a shootout. Russia is now 3-2 in the Canada-Russia Subway Super Series after sweeping the Q and being swept in Ontario. Omsk’s Sergei Kalinin (1+2, undrafted) was player of the game for Russia, while Prince Albert’s Brandon Herrod (1+0, undrafted) won the WHL’s award. Lightning prospect Brett Connolly will serve as an alternate captain for the WHL in their final game against Russia in Connolly’s hometown of Prince George on Thursday. He didn’t play in Wednesday’s game in Kamloops. Ashton, who scored the game's first goal in Wednesday's game, will not play in Prince George.

    Toledo Walleye 2 @ Florida Everblades 4
    C Mitch Fadden: 2-0-2, +1, 6 PIM (kneeing, tripping, slashing), 8 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 14 GP, 8-11-19, E, 18 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 13 GP, 3-1-4, -7, 10 PIM
    G Jaroslav Janus: Did not play.
    Season totals: 7 GP, 3-3-0-0, 4.20 GAA, .870 sv%, 0 SO

    One game after having his point streak stopped at 10 games, Fadden came up big for the Everblades, scoring twice to help the team snap a 3-game losing streak. Fadden’s goals extended Florida’s leads to 2-0 and 4-1. The first came on a strong move to the net and the second on a slap shot from the top of the left circle, according to the Everblades. Janus, who was getting extra practice time with the coaching staff Wednesday, watched as Bobby Goepfert stopped 35 of 37 for the game’s First Star award. Hutchings, meanwhile, hasn’t registered a point in 5 games. Fadden, who had a game-high 8 shots, now sits in fourth in the league in scoring with 19 points, 2 behind Elmira’s Michael Dubuc and Justin Donati.

    Must win game gets won.


    Dan Ellis allowed 2 goals on 36 shots in the win.

    First Period
    19:59 Stamkos (16), St Louis (13), Malone (8)(PP)

    Second Period
    12:49 TB Clark (3), St Louis (14), Stamkos (14)(PP)
    17:26 NYI Moulson (7), Konopka (1)

    Third Period
    18:31 TB St Louis (8), Downie (7), Lundin (4)
    18:52 NYI Tavares (7), Moulson (5), Wisniewski (12)
    19:44 TB Thompson (2), unassisted(EN)

    Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars. I don't know what the Isles ever did to Marty, but he seems to relish ripping their hearts out and stomping on them. He's filthy in the third period of close games against the Isles.

    This was a crucial win for the Lightning to arrest any potential feefall while trying to get healthy. They've got Downie back, Gagne's back in practice, and Lecavalier's about 4.5 weeks out. So they can't lose to the handful of teams they should pound in the meantime, like the Islanders, and they didn't tonight.

    Mattias Ritola had 7 penalty minutes, 2 shots, 2 hits, and was 75% on draws in 5:09. His major penalty was for charging.

    Johan Harju had 1 shot and 1 hit in 6:41. I thought Johan showed a little more of his defensive game tonight, helping his line clog up the neutral zone.

    Dana Tyrell was -1 with 2 blocked shots in 9:28.

    Ekaterinburg 5 @ Cherepovets 4 (OT)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, OTL, 31/36, 4.97 GAA, .861
    Season totals: 14 GP, 5-9-0, 1 SO, 3.14 GAA, .900 sv%

    You explain it to me. Just a couple of days after completing a masterful three game performance against some of the best club talent in Europe at the Karjala Cup, Vasily Koshechkin allowed 5 goals in a 5-4 overtime loss to Ekaterinburg. 37 year old veteran Andrei Subbotin had 2 goals and 3 points, including the overtime winning goal, for Ekaterinburg.

    Yulaev 5 @ Dynamo Riga 4
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 6-7-13, -2, 26 PIM

    Martins Karsums assisted on a Girts Ankipans goal in 15:00 of ice time in Riga's 5-4 loss to Yulaev. Ex-Oilers anf Flyers prospect Patrick Thoresen had 1 goal and 1 assist for Yulaev.

    Kazan 6 @ St. Petersburg 5 (SO)
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 16 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 12 PIM

    Evidently, the majority of the KHL forgot how to play defense over the Karjala break. Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 14:28 in Kazan's 6-5 shootout win over SKA St. Petersburg. Kazionov did score the winning goal in the shootout session for Ak Bars, as well. Ex-Stars second rounder Johan Fransson (Johan Fransson Lite) had 1 goal and 3 points in the loss for SKA. Ex-Lightning prospect Anton But was St. Petersburg's only unsuccessful shooter in the three round shootout.

    Penticton Vees 4 @ Salmon Arm Silverbacks 5
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 1-2-3, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 22 GP, 9-11-19, 8 PIM

    O’Donnell’s first game back from his time with Canada West in the World Junior A Challenge was a good one for him personally, as he scored once and added two assists, but the Vees fell on the road to Salmon Arm, 5-4. O’Donnell’s goal, scored with six seconds left in the second period, tied the game at 3 for Penticton. All his points came in the second period. O’Donnell is now second on the Vees in scoring, eight points behind left-handed defenseman Joey Laleggia, who was passed over in the 2010 draft. Laleggia, listed at 5’10”, is headed to the University of Denver next year. Laleggia was the first-ever B.C. Major Midget league hockey player to receive a verbal scholarship commitment to play hockey for an NCAA Div.1 school at 15-years-old, and actually committed to New Hampshire. UNH and LeLeggia agreed to go in separate directions this summer, reportedly.

    AIK 5 @ Sodertalje 2
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, ND, 0.00 GAA
    Season totals: 9 GP, 0-6-0, 0 SO, 2.86 GAA, .884 sv%

    Sodertalje was embarassed today by fellow Kval till Elitserien survivor AIK 5-2. Lightning prospect Riku Helenius entered the game at 12:36 of the second period and stopped all shots he faced in relief.
