    What a truly disappointing way to end a game.

    CT-3
    NOR-2 (OT)

    Connecticut Leads the Series 1-0

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals he'd like back on 29 shots including an overtime winner that he'll have nightmares about. It was a truly innocuous long shot that Tokarski got a lot of but popped straight up in the air and went in behind him. Thud. He made some big saves in the Second and Third Period, but the goals he did allow will leave a sick feeling in the Admirals' stomachs.

    First Period
    NOR Palat, (1) (Segal, Smith), 5:43
    CT Audy-Marchessault, (2) (Erixon), 8:18
    CT Hrivik, (5) (Wellman, Miller), 8:30
    NOR Labrie, (2) (Barberio, Killorn), 16:56

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    CT Thuresson, (1) (Owens, Bell), 2:53

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie was the game's second star.

    Tyler Johnson returned to the lineup from injury.

    Now Norfolk knows what they're up against, and this is admittedly a different team than they faced in the regular season. With guys like J.T. Miller and Marek Hrivik in the lineup, this is a younger and quicker Connecticut team. I think Norfolk was taken a little off guard early tonight and never really turned on the jets the way they typically do. It's a critical Game Two coming up Friday night.

    This one hurts. Florida outshot the K-Wings 38-19, including 16-1 in the second period, yet the ‘Blades came up on the losing end in Game 2, falling 3-2 in Kalamazoo. Florida, who got a shutout from Lightning prospect Pat Nagle in Game 1, held a 1-0 lead entering the third period. The K-Wings scored twice in just under two minutes to take a 2-1 lead, but Florida replied with a Matt Beca goal assisted by Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche (pictured) at 15:01. Two and a half minutes later the K-Wings scored the game winner and secured the Game 2 win, regaining home ice advantage. The series now shifts to southwest Florida for games 3-5. Nagle faced seven shots through two periods. He allowed three goals on 12 shots in the final stanza. Game 3 is Wednesday. (Photo courtesy of Swamphockey.com)

    Capitals prospect Stanislav Galiev scored in overtime – his 10th goal in 12 playoff games – to win the game and series for Saint John over Chicoutimi. The Sea Dogs continued their defense of the Memorial Cup by advancing to the QMJHL Finals, where they will face the winner of Rimouski and Halifax. The Oceanic are up 3-2 after a 9-0 home win on Friday. Saint John cruised through the first two rounds of the playoffs, but lost their first game of the postseason and needed overtime in two others to get passed the Sags. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier assisted on the game’s opening goal, which was scored on the power play.

    Elsewhere, in the OHL, Niagara eliminated Ottawa on Saturday. The IceDogs will face Vladislav Namestnikov and London in the OHL Finals beginning on Thursday in London.

Florida got their goals from defenseman Bobby Raymond and center Trevor Bruess. Game 2 is Saturday in Michigan. (Photo courtesy of swamphockey.com)

    And the legend of Alex Killorn is born...

    NOR-4
    MCH-3 (OT)

    Norfolk Wins the Series 3-1

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the victory. He wasn't as on it tonight as he was in Game Three, but he was able to stay sharp enough in a game where he didn't see a ton of shots.

    First Period
    MCH Azevedo, (1) , 0:38

    Second Period
    NOR Oberg, (1) (Killorn, Picard), 7:18
    MCH Mullen, (1) (Kozun, O'Neill), 11:18
    MCH Andreoff, (2) (Hickey, Vey), 15:37 (PP)
    NOR Barberio, (2) (Conacher, Ouellet), 16:58 (PP)
    NOR Smith, (2) (Gudas), 17:14

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    NOR Killorn, (1) (Picard), 13:27

    Killorn and Trevor Smith were the game's first and third stars. Killorn just looks like an NHLer. He plays a good north-south game. Skates well. Wins battles. Goes to the high-traffic areas. Backchecks hard. He's as honest a player as he is talented, and he just had a great first playoff round in his professional career. He had 2 goals and 6 points in his first 10 professional regular season games, and he just matched that point total with 1 goal and 6 points in his first 4 professional playoff games.

    Norfolk has 3 days to rest and, we hope, get healthy, before they move into the next round against the 6th seed, the Connecticut Whale, on Wednesday. Connecticut swept Bridgeport in the opening round and will be coming to Norfolk for Game One and Game Two in a 2-3-2 playoff format. However, of interest, Game Five (if necessary) will be played in Bridgeport and not Hartford. How interesting that a scheduling conflict works in Norfolk's favor in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Admirals swept the Whale during the regular season 4-0, with 3 regulation victories and 1 shootout win.

    Minnesota prospect Charlie Coyle scored his second goal of the game in overtime to propel the Sea Dogs to a 3-2 win over Chicoutimi on Thursday night. With the win, Saint John takes a 3-1 series lead and can advance to the QMJHL Finals with a win on Saturday in New Brunswick. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier had an assist on Jonathan Huberdeau’s (Panthers) goal, which gave Saint John a 2-1 lead in the game for all of 20 seconds.

    (W1) London Knights 4 @ (W3) Kitchener Rangers 2
    Western Conference Finals – London wins best of 7 series 4-0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov , LDN: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM (
    Playoff Totals: 14 GP, 3-10-13, +8, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Vladislav Namestnikov had two assists and former Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored the Knights’ final two goals to lead London to a 4-2 Game 4 win and a sweep of the Kitchener Rangers. London will now await the winner of Niagara and Ottawa to find out their opponent for the OHL Finals. Niagara is currently up 3-1 in games. London defenseman Olli Maata had a goal and two helpers tonight and he could be seeing his stock rising in the upcoming draft. Maatta is expected to go in the 10-20 range. At least one mock draft had him at eight. Maatta has five goals and 19 points in 14 games for London in the post-season. He had 32 points in 58 regular season games.

    Admirals win the battle. War of attrition continues.

    NOR-5
    MAN-2

    Norfolk Leads the Series 2-1

    Dustin Tokarski stopped 25 of 27 shots for the victory, including turning away 4 shorthanded breakaways. He was a difference maker tonight.

    First Period
    NOR Segal, (1) (Oberg, Killorn), 0:35
    NOR Labrie, (1) (Smith, Conacher), 7:40
    MCH Czarnik, (2) (Vey, Mullen), 11:06

    Second Period
    NOR Devos, (1) (Kostka, Smith), 4:31
    MCH Legein, (2) (Vey, Kolomatis), 12:51

    Third Period
    NOR Picard, (4) (Conacher, Smith), 14:45 (PP)
    NOR Segal, (2) (Killorn, Picard), 18:32 (EN)

    Phillip-Michael Devos and Trevor Smith were the game's first and second stars.

    Brandon Segal scored the game's opening goal, and then an empty netter to ensure that for Manchester the game was Out of Reach. His linemate, Alex Killorn has 4 points in his first 3 AHL playoff games.

    Alexandre Picard, who only had 6 goals the entire regular season, has 4 goals in the first 3 games of the playoffs. Make it so, Number Nine.

    Kidding aside, Mark Barberio had to leave the game in the Third Period after a Stefan Legein boarding major. Possible concussion. Norfolk can't afford to let Manchester stick around in this series, because Manchester's managed to injure 2 of Norfolk's best players in the first 3 games of this series. Tyler Johnson went out with the old upper-body injury in Game One. The playoffs are a war of attrition, and staying healthy is perhaps the biggest key to success for Norfolk. They need to put Manchester away in Game Four on Friday.

    Playoff Totals: 11 GP, 9-4-13, +8, 16 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Shocker! Etienne Brodeur (undrafted) scroed at 7:26 of overtime for the Sags, handing Saint John their first loss of the playoffs. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier scored his ninth goal of the playoffs in the game, a go-ahead score with just over three minutes to play. Chicoutimi tied the game under a minute later to force overtime. Game 4 is Thursday in Chicoutimi. Saint John leads the series, 2-1.

    OHL

    (W3) Kitchener Rangers 2 @ (W1) London Knights 5
    Western Conference Finals – London leads best of 7 series 3-0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov , LDN: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM (
    Playoff Totals: 13 GP, 3-8-11, +8, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Likely 2012 first round defenseman Olli Maata had two goals for London, leading the Knights to a 5-2 home win and a commanding 3-0 series lead over division-rival Kitchener. Maata could be a target of the Lightning this summer. Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov had his five game point streak come to an end. London chased Ducks second rounder John Gibson from the Kitchener nets by scoring four goals in just over a period of play. London can close out the series at The Aud in Kitchener on Wednesday.
