Game Night Results

    I'm still recovering from the mild heart attack I just had when Roloson was down after taking a slapshot off the collar bone.

    TB-2
    MTL-3 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 29 shots before allowing 2 of 4 shooters to convert for the shootout loss. And, every Lightning fan saw the season flash before their eyes when Scott Gomez pinged a slapshot off his collarbone and he went down like a ton of bricks. I'm very glad Roloson finished out the game, and I hope a bruise is the only takeaway from that play.

    Shootout
    TB- Gagne
    MTL- Dawes, Cammalleri

    Wow, nice homerism with three Montreal players being named stars in a game where the Lightning dominated the play to the tune of a 37-29 shot advantage. Montreal was very lucky to get to the shootout with the amount of chances that the Lightning were generating. It was a much stronger performance relative to the last outing against the Habs, which is understandable given how many regulars were hurt for Montreal. I thought Price stole the 2 points, frankly, and did so often by the skin of his teeth.

    There are 11 games left in the regular season. Tampa Bay is 4 points back of Washington with 1 game in hand and a trailing by 2 in the ROW column tiebreaker. The Lightning now have 5 straight games against teams that would miss the playoffs if the season ended today. This is where the club has to make its move, and it can put division rival Carolina out of its misery in the process.

    Mattias Ritola had 1 blocked shot in 13:14.

    Kval till Elitserien
    Mora 1 @ Sodertalje 6
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Ex-St. Cloud State forward Ryan Lasch had 1 goal and 1 assist to lead Sodertalje to a 6-1 blunt force pounding of Mora in their second game of the Kval till Elitserien. Sodertalje now sits in 2nd on the Kval till Elitserien table, 1 point back of Allsvenskan team Vaxjo and 1 point ahead of fellow Elitserien team MODO. 8 games remain in the promotion/relegation season.

    KHL Eastern Conference Semifinals
    (2)Kazan 0 @ (3)Ufa 1
    Ufa Wins the Series 4-1
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 44 GP, 2-5-7, +5, 32 PIM
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM

    Happy trails to defending Gagarin Cup champions Ak Bars Kazan. Ex-Kings goalie Erik Ersberg made 27 saves for a 1-0, Game Five shutout win for Ufa to seal the series win. Ex-Predators first rounder Alexander Radulov had Ufa's only goal. Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 13:36 in the match.

    That brings to a conclusion the Lightning prospect season in Russia. Yaroslavl and Ufa have already clinched spots in their respective conferences, while St. Petersburg has a 3-2 series lead over Mytischi and former Lightning netminder Karri Ramo's Omsk club holds a 3-2 series lead over Magnitogorsk.

    OHL

    Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Guelph Storm 4
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He is reportedly skating and recently returned home to Slovakia to take a high school equivalency exam. At 73 points and in seventh in the West, Guelph could still technically catch Plymouth (76) for sixth or be caught by London (69) and fall to eighth. London has a game in hand. Guelph will likely play Saginaw in the first round.

    Plymouth Whalers 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 4 (OT)
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 30 saves on 33 shots
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador (pictured) earned a second straight start for his First Star effort against London and won again, this time beating Plymouth in overtime. Zador, who is approaching 20 wins on the season, will likely see more time in net as Owen Sound has already clinched the West’s top seed. They’ll likely play London in the first round. Schemitsch is expected back for the playoffs.

    WHL

    Everett Silvertips 2 @ Tri-City Americans 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (goaltender interference, tripping)
    With Tri-City: 30 GP, 15-26-41, +8, 60 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 31-37-68, -4, 104 PIM

    Ashton has 14 points (6 goals) in March. He has 17 PIM in his last four games. TC is basically locked in as the West’s 4-seed. They’ll likely play either Chilliwack or Vancouver.

    Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 2 (SO)
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (high sticking, hooking)
    Season Totals: 68 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson didn’t find the scoresheet in regulation or overtime Wednesday, but scored in the shootout to help the Chiefs defeat Chilliwack. The Chiefs, who will be the 3-seed in the West, will likely play Vancouver or Chilliwack in the first round.

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 3 (SO)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 70 GP, 3-20-23, +38, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon, who has already clinched the league’s best record, won the shootout 2-0. Zahn has been at least plus-1 in his last six games. He is plus-16 in that span.

    KHL Western Conference Semifinals
    (1)Yaroslavl 5 @ (7)Dynamo Riga 4 (OT)
    Yaroslavl Wins the Series 4-1
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 17-15-32, -3, 46 PIM
    Playoff totals: 11 GP, 1-2-3, -1, 8 PIM

    Alexander Kalyanin scored 5:09 into overtime to life Lokomotiv to a 5-4 victory and eliminate Riga in Game Five of their semifinal series. Ex-NHLer Pavol Demitra had a goal in the match for Yaroslavl. Martins Karsums was scoreless in 17:30 of ice time.

    With Karsums' club season over, he'll await a spot on Latvia's World Championships team.

    BCHL

    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 5

    Salmon Arm Silverbacks 4 @ Penticton Vees 2
    Silverbacks win Best of 7 series 4-1

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, 9 PIM

    Penticton’s season came to an end Monday when they lost their third game at home in their second round series to upstart goalie Kris Moore and Salmon Arm. O’Donnell had an assist on the Vees’ final goal, which was scored at the four minute mark of the third period to cut the Silverbacks’ lead to 4-2. Salmon Arm scored twice in 14 seconds early in the third period to go up 4-1. Penticton finished two points ahead of Salmon Arm in the regular season. The Silverbacks are now 8-1 in the playoffs.

    O’Donnell finished second on the Vees in scoring during the regular season and represented Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge. While he missed three playoff games due to an injury sustained in a fight, he was nearly a point-per-gamer for the postseason. He’ll be donning the green of the University of North Dakota the next time we see him.

    Ahhhh, Toronto: the Lightning's cure-all.

    TB-6
    TOR-2

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the win.

    09:53 TB Thompson (8), Purcell (29), Clark (17)

    Second Period
    05:12 TOR Phaneuf (5), Brent (10), Lupul (13)

    08:47 TB Moore (13), St Louis (56), Stamkos (42)
    14:32 TB Lundin (1), Stamkos (43), St Louis (57)

    Mattias Ritola, Teddy Purcell, and Nate Thompson were the game's three stars. Tampa Bay climbs back to within 3 points of streaking Washington in the division.

    Ritola had 2 goals and was +2 with 6 shots and 2 hits in 10:22. He's elevated his physical play since coming up from Norfolk considerably, and it's upped his overall play.

    Blair Jones was -1 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 9:41. He was also 7/13 on faceoffs.

    ECAC Tournament
    Quarterfinals - Game 3

    Harvard Crimson 3 @ #18 Dartmouth Big Green 4
    Dartmouth wins series 2-1

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 34 GP, 15-14-29, +7, 36 PIM

    Harvard made it interesting scoring with .20 seconds left to pull within one but were unable to even it up.

    The Crimson finish with a 12-21-1 record. They went 5-3-1 in the month of February to push themselves into the playoffs and eventually knock out No. 7 seed Clarkson in the first round.

    Killorn, a junior, finished the season as the team's leading goal scorer with 15 and was second on the team in total points with 29. He set career highs in both categories, as well as assists with 14. He also led the team a plus-7 rating.

    In his three years at Harvard, Killorn has played 96 games registering 30 goals and 33 assists for 63 points.

    ECAC Tournament
    Quarterfinals - Game 3

    Quinnipiac Bobcats 2 @ Cornell Big Red 3 (OT)
    Cornell wins series 2-1

    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 32 GP, 1-6-7, +8, 32 PIM

    Cornell senior Joe Devin (undrafted) scored midway through the first overtime to win the series for Cornell. Gotovets recorded his first point in 20 games for the Big Red as they move onto the semifinals against Dartmouth.

    CCHA Tournament
    Quarterfinals - Game 3

    Ferris State Bulldogs 4 @ #15 Western Michigan 5 (OT)
    Western Michigan wins series 2-1

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 38 GP, 1-7-8, +14, 52 PIM

    Senior Max Campbell (NY Rangers) scored his 18th of the season 2:23 into overtime to win the series for Western Michigan. The Broncos led 3-0 and 4-1 in the game before Ferris State clawed their way back to send it to overtime.

    The Broncos now face tournament No. 1 seed Michigan in the semifinals. Western was 0-2-0 against Michigan in the regular season.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 8 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 5
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-2-2, +3, 2 PIM (cross-checking), 3 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 7-24-31, +16, 35 PIM

    Janosik has three points in his last two games. Gatineau looks like they’ll be locked into the fifth seed in the league under the new playoff format, meaning they’d play the 12 seed, which right now is Chicoutimi. Teams are re-seeded after each round.

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 0 @ Montreal Juniors 7
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM (roughing), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 11-28-39, +24, 30 PIM

    The Drakkar would have squeaked this one out – if they counted B-C's shots (13) vs. Montreal’s goals (7). Montreal scored five times in the first period on 16 shots. The Juniors are now up three points on Drummondville for the TELUS West Division title, with Montreal having a game in hand. Division winners get the first three seeds of the 16 teams that make the playoffs in the Q. Teams 4-16 are then seeded by total points.

    WHL

    Prince George Cougars 3 @ Tri-City Americans 6
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 57 GP, 43-25-68, -5, 26 PIM
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM (high sticking, roughing), *First Star*
    With Tri-City: 29 GP, 15-26-41, +8, 56 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 31-37-68, -4, 100 PIM

    In a match-up of probable future linemates with the Lightning, Carter Ashton got the better of Brett Connolly in goals, points, and the win column. Ashton set a new career high with his 30th and 31st goals of the season. He also tied Connolly in points for the season and hit the 100 penalty minute mark. Not a bad night for the big guy. Connolly, meanwhile, scored his 43rd goal of the season. Connolly broke his previous career high for goals in a year 12 goals ago.

    Tic puts the forcefield up in the shootout.

    NOR-3
    HER-2 (SO)

    Dustin Tokarski stopped 23 of 25 shots before beating all 5 Hershey shooters in the shootout for the victory. Tokarski improved to 19-15-4 on the season with 2 shutouts, a 2.41 GAA and .910 save percentage. It's expected that Cedrick Desjardins will see his first action back next weekend, but it should be kept in mind that Tokarski's GAA and save percentage are actually better than Desjardins' 2.56 GAA and .906 save percentage. Two good goaltenders = a good problem for Norfolk to have.

    First Period
    HER McNeill, (5) (Fahey, Perreault), 12:07 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Berry, (13) (Giliati, Barberio), 8:19 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Wright, (15) (Giliati, Barberio), 8:22 (PP)
    HER Greentree, (25) (Kozek, Willsie), 9:29

    Shootout
    NOR- Harju
    HER- NONE

    Tokarski and Stefano Giliati were the game's first and second stars. Giliati made two great power play assists in the contest, and Mark Barberio also assisted on both power play goals. Barberio now has 2 goals and 4 points in the last 3 and has 26 points on the season. If he could get to 30 points this year, that'd be nice output for a rookie campaign. James Wright became the 8th Admiral to hit the 15 goal plateau this season with his goal. 8 forwards who can put the puck in the back of the net = another good problem for Norfolk to have. It'll be interesting to see how many Admirals can get to 20 goals by the end of the regular season.

    Norfolk cashes in a game in hand a leaps 1 point ahead of Charlotte for 3rd place in the East Division with 1 game still in hand on the Checkers. They're also now 7 points back of Hershey with 3 games in hand and 2 more head-to-head matchups against the Bears at Scope left on the schedule. So, 2nd place remains in reach. Norfolk also expanded their lead over 5th place Binghamton back to 6 points and a 7 point lead over Worcester and Connecticut in the crossover. So, whereas the Lightning are fading a bit right now, Norfolk is starting to surge.

    There are 14 games left in the regular season. Norfolk is off until next Friday and Saturday when Albany comes to town. Albany sits in 6th in the East Division at 6 games under .500, and it is expected Cedrick Desjardins will return to the crease in one of those games.

    Greenville Road Warriors 6 @ Florida Everblades 3
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out until at least April - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 41 GP, 11-13-24, -9, 31 PIM
    G Jaroslav Janus: Loss, 20 saves on 23 shots
    Season totals: 26 GP, 11-12-0-0, 3.15 GAA, .911 sv%, 0 SO

    Janus filled in for starter Bobby Goepfert in the first period, down 3-0. Newly acquired forward Brad Snetsinger, a former Windsor Spitfire, had all three goals for Florida. Hutchings now has points in six of his last eight games.

    Florida is now three points back of South Carolina for fourth in the East, but just one ahead of Elmira and Wheeling. The Everblades are three points ahead of ninth place Cincinnati.
