    Comeback falls just short.

    NOR-3
    WBS-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    WBS Sterling, (24) (Hutchinson), 2:22 (PP)
    NOR Jones, (21) (Ritola, Berry), 8:43
    WBS Veilleux, (9) (Walker, Potter), 14:44 (PP)
    WBS Sterling, (25) (Lerg, Hutchinson), 18:53 (PP)
    WBS Craig, (19) , 19:38

    Second Period
    NOR Milam, (14) (Ritola, Harju), 8:26 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Ritola, (3) (Roy, Pouliot), 11:42

    Mattias Ritola was the game's second star.

    For those wondering, Pat Nagle was Tic's backup tonight.

    Norfolk burned up a very critical game in hand that they really needed to cash in. They sit at 88 points, 6 back of 2nd place Hershey, 3 back of 3rd place Charlotte, and 1 up on 5th place Binghamton. They now hold 2 games in hand on the Bears and Checkers, and 1 game in hand on the Senators. The good news is, the Admirals to face the Bears twice this weekend, so a couple of wins would put them in decent position to overtake Hershey. They're also still 8 points up on the Atlantic's 4th place team, Worcester, in the crossover, which is the safety net for the Admirals, and they have a game in hand on the Sharks. There are 7 games remaining in the regular season, and if the season ended tonight, Norfolk would be traveling to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to play these same Penguins in the opening round.

    Sodertalje 1 @ Orebro 4
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 2 GP, 0-0-1, 0 SO, 3.00 GAA, .800 sv%

    Sodertalje is in trouble. Orebro scored 3 unanswered 3rd period goals to defeat the Elitserien club 4-1 today in the 7th round of the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation tournament. With 3 games left to go, Sodertalje now sits in 3rd place, 2 points behind Allsvenskan side Rogle and 6 points behind another Allsvenskan side, Vaxjo. If the Kval till Elitserien ended today, Sodertalje would be relegated to the Allsvenskan. Complicating matters is Sodertalje's razor-thin tiebreaker lead over MODO, which is the other Elitserien club in the tournament. Sodertalje faces Rogle on Sunday in what is, essentially, a must-win for the club. A regulation loss for Sodertalje would make keeping their spot in Sweden's top league a near impossibility. It's hard to believe this is the same club that came within an eyelash of making the Elitserien playoffs just a few weeks ago.

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    No.4 Tri-City Americans 4 @ No.5 Vancouver Giants 0
    Tri-City leads best of seven series 3-0

    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (roughing)

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    No.2 Kelowna Rockets 7 @ No.7 Prince George Cougars 6
    Kelowna leads best of seven series 3-0

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: Did not play (injured - shoulder)
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Prince George put up a good fight, outshooting Kelowna 41-29, but didn’t get the goaltending they needed and fell 7-6. Connolly, who is publicly considered day-to-day with an upper body injury (shoulder separation), has not played since the opening period of Game 1. His season and possibly junior career is now potentially one game away from being over. (Note: His junior career would be over if he made the Lightning next season. He is not eligible to begin a season in the AHL until 2012. He could join AHL Norfolk – if healthy – this season when the Cougars are finished).

    TCB.

    OTT-2
    TB-5

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the win. 1 of those goals was a kick-in that should've been waved off by Toronto.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    03:15 TB St Louis (28), Lecavalier (27), Gagne (17)
    07:25 TB Moore (16), Bergeron (5), Tyrell (8)

    Third Period
    05:48 TB St Louis (29), Gagne (18), Stamkos (44)
    10:03 OTT Spezza (17), Greening (6), Hale (3)
    11:27 TB Moore (17), Tyrell (9), Clark (22)
    15:15 OTT Michalek (17), Kuba (12), Spezza (31)(SH)
    19:26 TB Stamkos (44), Hall (10), Moore (13)(EN)

    Martin St. Louis, Dominic Moore, and Simon Gagne were the game's three stars.

    Good signs abounded in this game. Vincent Lecavalier and Simon Gagne continue to play their best hockey of the year. Martin St. Louis looks to be back on track. And, the most encouraging sign is that Steven Stamkos played his best game tonight in, gosh, a month to a month and a half? Took 12 shots, 8 hit the net, and he only got credit for 1 hit but it seemed like he played with more jam and hustle than he has in forever. He even pulled the trigger twice on the one-timer from the left circle on the PP. He was rewarded with the third highest ice time on the team behind St. Louis and Lecavalier tonight. If he plays the last 6 games of the regular season like that, he might just eke out the Richard Trophy after all.

Sodertalje plays Orebro on Wednesday, and with 4 games left to go they are in peril of relegation.

    Yes, you read that right. On a team full of stars, Teigan Zahn was First Star tonight for Saskatoon in their Game 2 win over Prince Albert. Zahn is now at a point-per-game pace for the playoffs. Sure, it’s just two games, but Zahn, a rugged defenseman known more for his fists and leadership, is a PPGer officially. Game 3 is Wednesday in Prince Albert.

    Disaster in Charlotte.

    NOR-2
    CHA-8

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 14 shots for the loss before giving way to Jaroslav Janus who did even worse, allowing 4 goals on just 9 shots.

    First Period
    CHA Dalpe, (20) (Jordan, McNicoll), 4:30 (PP)
    CHA Dalpe, (21) (Micflikier, Boychuk), 10:52
    NOR Szczechura, (19) (Jones, Pouliot), 13:43
    CHA Terry, (32) (Matsumoto), 16:32

    Second Period
    CHA Pistilli, (6) (Terry, Jordan), 0:07
    CHA McNicoll, (4) (Boychuk, Sanguinetti), 4:26 (PP)
    CHA Nash, (14) , 9:33
    CHA Boychuk, (22) (Micflikier, Dalpe), 16:35

    Third Period
    CHA Blanchard, (7) (Sutter, Bellemore), 7:09 (SH)
    NOR Angelidis, (19) (Durno, Barberio), 7:39 (PP)

    Yuck. There had been some hope that since the Checkers had to travel further that they'd be the more tired of the two teams. Norfolk did outshoot Charlotte 41-23 in the contest, but it didn't matter considering 1 out of every 3 shots was going in for the Checkers. Mercy. The silver lining is that Paul Szczechura and Mike Angelidis each got their 19th goals of the season, putting them 1 shy of the magic 20 goal mark.

    Norfolk's fortunes in the standings took a beating tonight, too. 3rd place Charlotte moved 3 points ahead with the Admirals still owning 3 games in hand. 2nd place Hershey lost in overtime to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton so they gained a point and are now 6 points up on the Admirals with Norfolk holding 3 games in hand. But, now Norfolk is receiving pressure from behind them. Binghamton won today, moving them to within 1 point of Norfolk with the Admirals still holding 2 games in hand. Heck, even Worcester won in the crossover.

    With 8 regular season games to go, a lot of positive scenarios are still open for Norfolk to achieve, but unfortunately some of the disappointing ones are still on the table, too. Norfolk has a brutal schedule next week, although all three games are at least at home: the Penguins on Wednesday and the Bears on Friday and Saturday. And then, the final week of the season will be a grueling 5 game road trip over 7 nights in Charlotte, Binghamton, a 2 game set in Syracuse, and a season capping matchup in Connecticut against the Whale. It may be a good thing that Norfolk has an 8 point lead in the crossover, after all.

    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 47 GP, 12-13-25, -10, 33 PIM

    Ouch. The ‘Blades had a chance to clinch a playoff berth Saturday, but failed to show up, getting outshot 39-18 and outscored 5-0 as Wheeling won their second game of a three game mini-series in southwest Florida. Hutchings did not register a shot in the game. Florida will play South Carolina three times at home this week to close the regular season. The ‘Blades remain one point up on South Carolina for fourth in the East, and five points up on ninth place Toledo. Florida had a 30-minute players-only meeting after the game, reported the Naples Daily News.
