    WHL

    Lethbridge Hurricanes 1 @ Vancouver Giants 5
    RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -6, 10 PIM

    This was supposed to be a match-up of Lightning prospects James Wright and Ashton, but Wright went and made the Lightning, leaving the Giants in a quandary. Vancouver made a trade earlier Tuesday, acquiring Cass Mappin (undrafted) to help replace Wright. Mappin had an assist vs. Lethbridge. It doesn’t look as though Vancouver needs the help, though – Lethbridge does. The ‘Canes remain the lone WHL team without a win (0-5). They’ll look for that first one again tonight (Wednesday) in Kamloops. Vancouver is 4-1-0-1.

    According to Gregg Drinnan of the Kamloops Daily News, the Lethbridge-Vancouver game featured 175 penalty minutes and the refs had their hands full with one line brawl and several post-whistle scrums.

    Lightning prospect defenseman Kirill Gotovets and Shattuck St. Mary's got their season underway this past weekend, going 3-0. The Sabres defeated Team Northeast, 7-3, Team Southwest, 8-3, and Team Wisconsin, 5-3. Gotovets, a Cornell commit, did not register a point. He had eight minutes in penalties (cross-checking, roughing-2, elbowing). Gotovets was a seventh round pick of the Bolts this past summer.

    Vasily Koshechkin allowed 3 goals on 24 shots as Togliatti fell to Nizhnekamsk 4-2. Former NHLer Denis Arkhipov added an empty netter for Nizhnekamsk with 1 second left in the match.

    Johan Harju assisted on a Linus Omark goal as Dynamo Moscow defeated Spartak Moscow 5-1. The helper was just Harju's second point of the season.

    That, boys and girls, is what a clinic looks like.

    TB-5
    ATL-1

    Mike Smith allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the win.

    First Period
    TB 12:11, Konopka 1 (Ranger)
    TB 13:08, Stamkos 1 (St. Louis, Lecavalier)(PP)

    Second Period
    TB 2:23, St. Louis 1 (Stamkos, Lecavalier)(PP)
    ATL 5:40, Thorburn 1 (Salmela, Slater)

    Third Period
    TB 7:08, Ohlund 1 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)
    TB 12:20, Stamkos 2 (Malone, St. Louis) (PP)

    If that was a preview of the regular season, then I'd say that's a pretty resounding statement the Lightning just issued. The Lightning had 3 power play goals and were 3/7 overall with the man advantage. There's no reason for this club not to be top-10 in the league with the man advantage, and it's hard to miss the playoffs when you're that good with the extra man.

    Paul Ranger's shoulder must feel ok after playing a team high 22:19. Pretty fascinating ice time distribution in this game among the defensemen with only Ranger going over 20 minutes.

    Final cuts are due by Wednesday. Tuesday at noon would be the deadline for the Lightning to place any eligible player who needs to go through waivers on the wire before sending them down to Norfolk.

    Steve Downie was -1 with 6 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 10:31.

    Drew Miller was scoreless in 13:39.

    Zenon Konopka had a goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes and 3 shots on goal in 11:37.

    James Wright had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 13:32.

    Victor Hedman was +1 with 2 blocked shots in 19:49.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 3 @ St. John Sea Dogs 4 (SO)
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, +1, 2 PIM

    A bit of a slow start statistically for Barberio, who started and finished strong last year around a mid-season slump.

    OHL

    Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 2
    RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: Did not play.
    Season totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 6 PIM
    LW Matais Sointu, OTT: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, +3, 2 PIM

    Sointu scored his first OHL goal late in the third, but it wasn’t enough to keep the red-hot and conference-leading Greyhounds from winning their fifth straight to start the season. Kyle DeCoste did not play for the Soo. It’s possible he was suspended for his match penalty in the previous game.

    Sudbury Wolves 4 @ Oshawa Generals 3 (OTO
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-1, 5.50 GAA, .842 sv%, 0 SO

    After getting pulled in his previous outing, Zador watched from the bench as his back-up, Kevin Ballie, stopped 24 of 28 shots.

    A couple of Admirals tryouts are looking like serious contenders to make the team.

    NOR-3
    HER-4 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 13 shots before giving way to Jaroslav Janus midway through the game. Janus allowed 2 goals on 17 shots for the overtime loss, and now the Lightning will need to make a decision whether to sign the young Slovak to an entry-level deal or send him back to Erie of the OHL for one more season.

    Juraj Simek and tryouts Matt Dias and Tommy Goebel scored the Admirals' goals. Mitch Fadden, Kevin Quick, Ty Wishart (twice), and Chris Lawrence added assists.

    Norfolk was outshot 30-27 in the game.

    Tommy Goebel has been the story so far in Admirals camp among the tryouts. The diminutive Parma, Ohio native is entering his second year of pro hockey after splitting last season between Wheeling of the ECHL (42 points in 35 games) and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL (4 goals and 12 points in 25 games). Goebel played four years in the CCHA split between Michigan State and Ohio State, amassing 54 goals and 115 points in 147 games. Goebel could add more speed to an Admirals lineup that was one of the slowest in the AHL over the past two seasons.

    Matt Dias is trying to earn a pro contract after four years with Sudbury of the OHL. Last season Dias had 31 goals and 66 points in 68 games.

    OHL

    Windsor Spitfires 6 @ Owen Sound Attack 3
    C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (roughing)
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 2-0-2, +1, 2 PIM

    Panik had two goals in his opener, but has no points in two games since.

    WHL

    Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Swift Current Broncos 7
    RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-0-0, -5, 2 PIM (hooking)

    Not the return to the WHL Lightning first rounder Carter Ashton was hoping for.

  • 5 years 8 weeks ago

    Karri Ramo allowed 1 goal on 19 shots as Omsk smoked Togliatti 5-1. Vasily Koshechkin allowed 3 goals on 8 shots in the first period before being pulled for the loss. Former Lightning player Eric Perrin had an assist in the match for Omsk, which also has former NHLer Jaromir Jagr.

    Denis Kazionov did not play in Ekaterinburg's 3-2 loss to Chelyabinsk.

    Dimitry Kazionov scored his first goal of the season and had 2 shots in 13:06 as Kazan defeated Yulayev 4-3.

    Johan Harju was -1 in 14:34 as Dynamo Moscow fell to Novgorod 2-1.

    Not a great night statistically for Lightning prospects.

  • 5 years 8 weeks ago

    I'm starting to believe in James Wright.

    EDM-3
    TB-4 (OT)

    Mike Smith was in net and stopped 28 of 31 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TB - Malone 3 (Stamkos, St. Louis) 04:13
    TB - St. Louis 2 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)(PP) 17:21

    Second Period
    EDM - Nilsson 1 (Gagner, Gilbert)(PP) 15:52
    EDM - Cogliano 1 (Grebeshkov) 19:32

    Third Period
    EDM - Gilbert 2 (Brule) 04:13
    TB - Foster 1 (Hedman, Wright) 18:23

    Overtime
    TB - St. Louis 3 (Malone, Lecavalier)(PP) 4:53

    Kind of like last night, I felt this game was more an affirmation of what the Lightning have than an answer to any questions about what they need or don't have. The team is going to have two good scoring lines and a very good power play, as expected. Vinny hating TSN commentator Ray Ferraro went out of his way to complain about what a bad night Vincent Lecavalier was having, and then he goes and assists on the winning goal off the faceoff late in overtime to cap a multi-point night. Yeah Ray, he stinks.

    James Wright continues to shine in this marathon week of games that will finally, mercifully, come to an end tomorrow night with the scrimmage in Norfolk. He got an assist on the tying goal by Kurtis Foster where he won a key assist late and set a nice screen in front. He's played better than some guys who are three year AHL pros who should be knocking on the door for NHL jobs.

    On the down side: Lukas Krajicek is awful. He just stinks. Turned the puck over on Gilbert's go-ahead goal and took a penalty in overtime that took one or two really big saves by Mike Smith to erase. He just stinks. I spent the last 25 minutes of play hoping that thing on Tocchet's chin would leap out and strangle Lukas. If Brian Lawton doesn't jettison Krajicek, well, I may pull my hair out this season.
