    Unlucky Connolly keeps Lightning from clinching a winning record for the season.

    TB-2
    TOR-3 (OT)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the overtime loss. Deserved better, perhaps.

    First Period
    TB St. Louis (25), (Lee, Malone), 5:49
    TOR Connolly (13), (Gardiner, Steckel), 6:32

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    TB Stamkos (59), (Gervais, St. Louis), 8:48
    TOR Gardiner (7), (unassisted), 17:05

    Overtime
    TOR Phaneuf (11), (Kessel), 4:01

    Steven Stamkos was named the game's third star. He'll get one crack to get the one goal he needs to get to 60.

    Congratulations to Martin St. Louis for his 9th straight 25 goal season. That's amazing consistency from a small player who played the bulk of his career in the clutch and grab era.

    In case I haven't mentioned it, I loves me some Brian Lee. 3 shots, 5 hits, and he set up Marty's goal. Steve Yzerman robbed Ottawa blind in that deal. Not saying Gilroy's a bum, but Lee is a potential stud 2-way blueliner in this league, and I'm still stunned why the Sens gave up on him. The only thing I can think is that he never blew up offensively to the degree they thought he would. Still, to give up that skating ability and that willingness to step up and deliver a hit for a player as inconsistent as Gilroy? C'mon, man.

    Brett Connolly will look back on his rookie season one day and laugh. It's been a hard one, and tonight's own-goal put the punctuation on that. He's immensely talented and creative, though. There are better days ahead.

    Keith Aulie had 1 shot and 2 hits in 15:50 against his old club. Good for him breaking the 15 minute barrier in IT.

    J.T. Brown was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 15:11. It'd be nice to see him hit the scoresheet in the finale.

    J.T. Wyman had 5 shots and 1 hit in 10:52. The coaches love him. He'll enter next season a slight favorite for a spot in Tampa Bay, I surmise.

    Seems like the Lightning may have let all the air out at the home finale.

    TB-2
    MTL-5

    Sebastien Caron allowed 5 goals on 25 shots for the loss. Not a good effort for a guy looking for an NHL gig next season.

    First Period
    MTL Emelin (3), (Desharnais, Budaj), 2:11
    TB Lecavalier (22), (unassisted), 7:26

    Second Period
    MTL Cole (33), (Desharnais, Pacioretty), 1:42
    MTL Cole (34), (Plekanec, Markov)(PP), 14:34

    Third Period
    TB Gervais (6), (Wallace, Hedman), 3:42
    MTL Pacioretty (31), (Gorges, Plekanec), 5:58
    MTL Pacioretty (32), (Subban), 14:57

    It makes me ill to see David Desharnais do so well and to know we had him in camp and the only thing we were willing to offer him at the time was a 3-way deal in the Coast. Painful. It was obvious years ago he had this in him.

    Vincent Lecavalier has scored 373 goals in his NHL career, and probably none were easier than that gift from Budaj. That was pitiful.

    Keith Aulie was -1 with 1 hit in 11:10.

    J.T. Brown was +1 with 3 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 14:56.

    J.T. Wyman was +1 with 2 hits in 9:52.

    SM-liiga Semifinals (Finland):
    (4)JYP 2 @ (6) Jokerit 1 (OT)

    JYP Leads the Series 1-0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 38/39, 0.87 GAA, .974 sv%
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 4-0-0, 0 SO, 1.45 GAA, .957 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 21-9-1, 7 SO, 1.64 GAA, .936 sv%

    The remarkable march of Riku Helenius continues. The former first rounder stopped 38 of 39 shots to lead JYP to a 2-1 overtime Game One win over Jokerit. It took a Jani Tuppurainen goal at 9:05 of overtime to settle it. JYP remains unbeaten in the playoffs. Game Two is Thursday.

    KHL Eastern Conference Finals (Russia):
    (2)Omsk 3 @ (1)Chelyabinsk 1
    Omsk Leads the Series 3-1
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Playoff totals (KHL): 3 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Regular Season totals (MHL): 41 GP, 11-20-31, +11, 66 PIM
    Regular season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-0-0, +8, 4 PIM

    Uh oh. Nikita Nesterov made his first playoff appearance since the first round and was even in 7:25 of ice time, but Chelyabinsk fell hard to Omsk 3-1. The Game Four win stakes Omsk to a 3-1 series lead. Ex-Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo stopped 25 of 26 shots in the victory for Omsk. Game Five is on Friday.

    Brian Bellows, for the Eastern Conference top seed win!

    WBS-1
    NOR-2

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 26 shots for his 30th victory of the season, which leads the league. It's his 11th straight win, personally, and he raised his save percentage to .912 with his effort tonight. He's trying to track down his personal best as a pro, his .915 save percentage from his rookie campaign.

    First Period
    NOR Ouellet, (15) (Panik, Barberio), 8:09 (PP)

    Second Period
    WBS Lerg, (25) (Grant), 14:23

    Third Period
    NOR Barberio, (12) (Johnson), 12:23 (PP)

    Mark Barberio, Tokarski, and Michel Ouellet were the game's three stars. Barberio continues to lead the league's defensemen in scoring by a wide margin of 13 points, and he's now 1 point shy of the 60 point plateau for the year. It's hard to imagine any scenario where he doesn't win hardware as the league's top defenseman.

    Panik attack, y'all.

    There will be two banners raised in Norfolk in the Fall. The victory, the Admrials' 50th of the season, puts away the Eastern Conference top seed (bring on the "z"), and they now have the opportunity to zero in on clinching the top spot in the entire league. They have a 10 point lead on Oklahoma City with the Barons still with 6 games left to play, so the magic number is 2 for the AHL equivalent of the President's Trophy, as the Barons can't catch Norfolk in ROW. The Barons are currently in action, leading Hamilton, but if they stumble, then Norfolk will clinch that distinction tonight, as well. Norfolk has just 5 games remaining in the regular season. They draw Binghamton on Friday and Saturday.

    "To the last, I will grapple with thee... from Hell's heart, I stab at thee! For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!"

    WSH-2
    TB-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    WSH Semin (20), (Perrault), 12:47
    TB Purcell (21), (Stamkos, St. Louis)(PP), 17:20
    TB Hedman (5), (Thompson, Pyatt), 17:45

    Third Period
    WSH Chimera (20), (Semin), 16:43
    TB Stamkos (57), (Clark, Lee), 18:57
    TB Stamkos (58), (Thompson, Brewer)(EN), 19:59

    Roloson, Steven Stamkos, and Tom Pyatt were the game's three stars. This young man Stamkos, he might be good at this hockey thing. I think he could make a career of it.

    I loathe the Caps. I loathe their fans. I loathe their players. I loathe the Ovechtrick. I loathe the lack of respect they have for their own talents. I loathe their lack of respect for the game they play. I even loathe their lack of respect for their own coaches. I hate missing the playoffs, but if we have to, sticking a harpoon in the Caps' playoff hopes is a decent consolation prize. Loved burying them in the playoffs last season. Love putting them in jeopardy of missing the playoffs this year.

    Keith Aulie was -2 with 4 hits in 12:11. And, old Aulie returneth.

    J.T. Brown had 5 shots and 1 blocked shot in 11:45. That move. In the third period. You know the one I'm talking about. The spin-o-rama from behind the cage for the stuff attempt in front. That's something you try in a summer roller hockey league. Few players have the creativity or the guts to try that in a pro game. Have mercy. Gotta get at least 15 pounds of muscle on this young man, but he has the talent.

    J.T. Wyman (pictured, but not really) was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 15:27.
