    WHL All-Stars 5 vs. Russia 7

    Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 2-1-3, +5, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Series totals: 6 GP, 4-3-7, 2 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Series totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, 2 PIM

    Kucherov and Russia finished with a bang to tie the overall Superseries between CHL teams and Russia 3-3. The Russians were down 4-2 and 5-3 at different points in the game before they came roaring back. Kucherov's second goal came on a "beauty of a breakaway" as one reporter put it. Nikita Gusev, the undrafted pint-sized scoring star who is a teammate of Kucherov's for CSKA's junior team, was player of the match for Russia with a goal, two assists, and a plus-5 rating. Kucherov finishes the series against Canada's best junior competition at more than a point per game. While defense takes a back seat in these series, it is still encouraging that he can score with the best of his age group.

    Clinical, workmanlike victory.

    PIT-1
    TB-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 1 goal on 34 shots for the win. As badly unfocused as he was in Winnipeg, he was equally outstanding tonight. Very sharp. Moved very well. Probably should have had a shutout except for the sloppy, penalty-filled, choppy ending to the game.

    First Period
    TB Lecavalier (7), (unassisted), 8:38

    Second Period
    TB Connolly (4), (Moore, Bergeron)(PP), 4:08

    Third Period
    TB Downie (2), (Brewer, Stamkos)(PP), 2:04
    TB Lecavalier (8), (unassisted)(EN), 15:49
    PIT Kennedy (2), (Martin, Staal), 16:49

    Roloson, Victor Hedman, and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's three stars.

    34-18 still isn't a good shot disparity for the Lightning, and they definitely were outplayed in the first period, but this team gets the timely goal and save at home, and they've gotten the exact opposite on the road. It's a mystery as to why that is.

    Brett Connolly had another goal and was -1 with 1 shot in 6:08. He was dropped to the fourth line to start the game and played sparingly, but was obviously effective in a smattering of power play shifts.

    Blair Jones played 4:25. That's over $1,200 a minute for his night's work. I want Blair Jones' hourly rate, please. I'm sure the assistants run him through the gauntlet as a bubble guy when he's a scratch, and he's logged a lot of miles on buses with Springfield and Norfolk to get here, but still, it's nice work if you can get it.

    Detroit's 2010 first round pick Riley Sheahan had two goals for the Irish as they beat the Broncos in a rare Tuesday night game. After such a great start to the season, going unbeaten in their first nine games, the Broncos have tailored off losing four straight.
