Magnitogorsk was outshot 24-20 in the match, but Magnitogorsk has Koshechkin, who now sports a monsterous .942 playoff save percentage.

    Tomorrow, the Western Conference series' will be back in action with Game Five contests. With the exception of the Dynamo Riga/KHK MVD series, which Riga trails 3-1, all of the other playoff series are now knotted at 2-2 a piece.

    Moncton defenseman David Savard (Blue Jackets 4/09) scored at 14:53 of the first overtime to give the Wildcats a road win and a commanding 3-0 series lead over Cape Breton. Barberio set up Nicolas Deschamps (Ducks 2/08) early in the second period to give Moncton a 2-0 lead they’d relinquish late in the third period.

    WHL

    West-2 Vancouver Giants 5 @ West-7 Kamloops Blazers 4 (OT)
    Conference Quarterfinals, Game 3. Vancouver leads Best of 7 Series 3-0

    Vancouver took a huge step toward securing their first round series with Kamloops when Brett Breitkreuz (undrafted), acquired earlier in the year from Edmonton, scored at 2:28 of overtime to give the Giants a road win and 3-0 series lead. Wright is still looking for his first point of the playoffs, but was named the Game’s No.3 star – on the road, no less.

    The Lightning deal a blow to their chances of landing Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin.

    TB 13:03, Downie 20 (Stamkos, Foster)(PP)

    Overtime
    TB 0:29, St. Louis 26 (Meszaros, Lundin)

    All kidding aside, congratulations to Steve Downie on scoring his 20th goal of the season. Apparently that makes Downie the NHL's first 20 goal/200 PIM player since Theo Fleury did it with the Rangers in 2001-2002. He's a rare and special player, and he's going to get better, which should scare the rest of the league half to death.

    Martin St. Louis is 4 goals shy of 30. He's played so well all season. I'd love to see him get there.

    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 1-1-2, +4, 4 PIM

    Wow. Facing the prospect of falling into a 3-0 hole in the series, Vasily Koshechkin pitched a 37 save shutout to help Magnitogorsk pull off a 1-0 overtime victory in Game Three. Petri Kontiola scored off a Stan Chistov assist with just 5 seconds remaining in the first overtime session to seal the deal. Dmitri Kazionov played a scoreless 24:50 in the match for Kazan. Can we please get some of what was in Koshechkin's water bottle for Tokarski for the two big games the Admirals have coming up against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this week?

    Game Four tomorrow.

    (8)Dynamo Riga 4 @ (2)KHK MVD 5 (OT)
    KHK MVD Leads the Series 3-1
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +6, 16 PIM
    Playoff totals: 8 GP, 2-1-3, -1, 4 PIM

    Ex-NHLer and KHL goal scoring champion Marcel Hossa scored a tying goal with less than 1 minute remaining in regulation, but Evgeni Fedorov scored a goal 2:33 into the second overtime to help KHK MVD win 5-4. The win puts Cindarella Riga on the brink of elimination. Lightning prospect Martins Karsums scored a goal early in the 2nd period and took a second period elbowing minor in 23:42 of ice time.

    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 1 SO, 1.50 GAA, .946 sv%

    So far, so good for Sodertalje in the Swedish relegation/promotion series. The club got 1 goal and 1 assist from ex-Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux and 2 assists from ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll in today's match to defeat Allsvenskan team AIK. Next up for Sodertalje: Leksands, which was briefly promoted to the Elitserien for the 2005-2006 season, but has been relegated to the Allsvenskan ever since. That match will take place Thursday.

    Done.

    TB-2
    FLA-5

    Mike Smith allowed 5 goals on 40 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TB 6:04, Downie 19 (unassisted)
    FLA 14:12, Horton 18 (Stillman, Weiss)(PP)
    FLA 17:42, Booth 6 (Bitz, Ballard)
    FLA 18:28, Stillman 15 (Horton)

    Third Period
    TB 2:09, Stamkos 43 (Lecavalier, St. Louis)(PP)
    FLA 4:03, Weiss 25 (Allen, Ballard)
    FLA 15:34, Dvorak 12 (Garrison)

    I'm mildly pleased that Steve Downie scored his 19th goal and is now one shy of the 20 goal plateau. Other than that, there's not a lot of positives to take away from this game.

    I see Mark Parrish was out of this lineup for this game. I hope the Lightning will send him down to Norfolk to help their playoff drive. I also see Matt Smaby was held out of a second straight game with David Hale returning. I don't know the rules governing conditioning stints after Clear Day, but I'd sure love to see Smabes get one Wednesday and Friday.

    In case you're wondering about draft position, the Lightning now have the 3rd worst record in the league. They won't "catch" the worst, Edmonton, but if trends hold up the Leafs will probably make up the 4 points necessary to put the Lightning back into second-to-last again for a second straight season. This is considered a two-superstar draft (Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin) so perhaps if the Lightning continue to slide there's a silver lining (presuming ping pong balls bounce favorably for a third straight year).

    KHL (Russa) Eastern Conference Semifinals
    Magnitogorsk 2 @ Kazan 3
    Kazan Leads the Series 2-0

    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 3-2, 0 SO, 2.24 GAA, .925 sv%

    Magnitogorsk switched to backup Ilya Proskuryakov for Game Two of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series, but the results were the same as Metallurg now finds themselves in a 2-0 series hole. Lightning prospect Dmitri Kazionov opened the scoring for Kazan in the 2nd period and took a hooking minor in 14:45 of ice time. But, it wasn't until less than 2 minutes left in the game when former Penguin Alexei Morozov notched the game winning goal that the outcome was finally decided. The scene now switches to Magnitogorsk for Game Three of the seven game series.

    Tomorrow features Game Three between Riga and KHK MVD with Riga down 2-0 in the series. Elsewhere today, Nizhnekamsk evened up their Eastern Conference Semifinal series 1-1 with Yulaev with a 2-1 overtime win.

    Kval till Elitserien totals: 1 GP, 1-0-0, 1 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Not a bad start to Sweden's relegation/promotion series for Riku Helenius as he blanked the only other Elitserien level opponent in the series, Rogle, 2-0. Sodertalje won despite being outshot 28-19 in the contest. The club got goals from former Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux and ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll. On Tuesday, Sodertalje faces Allsvenskan team AIK.

    WHL

    West-7 Kamloops Blazers 3 @ West-2 Vancouver Giants 6
    Conference Quarterfinals, Game 2. Vancouver leads Best of 7 Series 2-0

    In other WHL news, East No.8 seed Moose Jaw has taken both early games from No.1 Calgary in Calgary.

    Give them credit for fighting hard.

    WSH-3
    TB-1

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    WSH 2:40, Fleischmann 21 (Fehr, Steckel)
    TB 6:54, Lecavalier 22 (Purcell, Bochenski)
    WSH 10:47, Ovechkin 45 (Backstrom)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    WSH 7:20, Semin 33 (Laich, Morrison)

    I'm heartened by how well Vincent Lecavalier is playing down the stretch for the Lightning. It portends good things for next season, because if Vinny's scoring at a 40 goal clip, and Stamkos is too, then the Lightning are un-defendable, if that's a word. Ted Purcell looks like a keeper, too, with 6 points in his first 8 games with the Lightning.
