    Norfolk brought out the big 16 inch main guns tonight, and blasted Hartford into oblivion.

    NOR-7
    HFD-3

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 24 shots and bathed in sweet, sweet goal support for the victory.

    First Period
    NOR Simek, (16) (Jones, Tyrell), 11:57
    NOR Bochenski, (17) , 14:49 (PP)
    HFD Dupont, (11) (Nightingale, Roche), 16:19

    Second Period
    NOR Hall, (10) (Craig, McGinnis), 0:53
    NOR Lashoff, (6) (Szczechura, Bochenski), 12:07 (PP)
    NOR Jackson, (1) (Bochenski, Parrish), 17:52

    Third Period
    NOR Craig, (17) (Tyrell, Lashoff), 1:18
    HFD Crowder, (11) , 12:45
    NOR Wishart, (8) (Szczechura, Lashoff), 17:37 (PP)
    HFD Nightingale, (2) (Owens, Brashear), 19:45

    Brandon Bochenski, Ryan Craig, and Matt Lashoff were the game's three stars. It's a shame the Admirals can't keep all this weaponry past the end of the Olympic break, because they're terrifying now that they've got Parrish and Bochenski in the fold, Lashoff is playing better, and guys like Tyrell and Fadden are starting to show their potential. Bochenski set the all-time Norfolk Admirals record for goals scored in the AHL with his first period marker.

    Norfolk outshot Hartford 45-24 in the game. Awesome.

    Ty Wishart is now up to 8 goals and 25 points for the season. The goal of a 30 point season is in the crosshairs.

    Paul Szczechura has 1 goal and 9 points in 9 games since being sent back down to Norfolk, including 3 multi-point games in his last 5 outings.

    Juraj Simek, the Don of the Presov Mafia, has goals in 4 of the past 5 games and 4 goals and 6 points in his past 6.

    Tyrell has 2 multi-point games in his past 3 outings and 1 goal and 5 points in his past 4.

    Lashoff has 2 goals and 7 points in his last 6 games.

    Norfolk moves back to within 4 points of Albany for 2nd place in the East Division with the Rats holding 1 game in hand by virtue of their victory and Albany getting pasted 9-2 tonight by Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The 4th place Pens are 4 points behind Norfolk with 2 games in hand. Norfolk is also 6 points up on 5th place Adirondack with the Phantoms holding 3 games in hand. 6th place Syracuse is 8 points back with 2 games in hand. Last place Binghamton is fading, 11 points back of Norfolk with 5 games in hand.

    In the crossover, Norfolk holds a 3 point lead over Providence, Hartford, and Bridgeport with the Bruins holding 2 games in hand and the Wolf Pack and Sound Tigers each with 1 game in hand.

    Late last night...

    Russia 8 @ Latvia 2
    Martins Karsums, Latvia, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Tournament totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Karsums played 12:21 in the match and assisted on a third period goal by Girts Ankipans. Russia was paced by 2 goals each by Alexander Ovechkin and Danis Zaripov.

    Earlier in the day, Ryan Malone had a goal in Team USA's 3-1 win over Switzerland.

    OHL

    Sudbury Wolves 2 @ Sarnia Sting 6
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 7-12-19, -2, 12 PIM
    With Sudbury: 18 GP, 4-5-9, -7, 6 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    Sudbury has lost their last five and has fallen into a three-way tie for seventh place in the Eastern Conference with Oshawa and Niagara (all with 56 games played). The three of them are eight points ahead of Belleville. Sarnia scored five times in the third period to beat the Wolves Monday night.

    Brampton Battalion 3 @ Oshawa Generals 2
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 13-21-2-1, 3.73 GAA, .893 sv%, 2 SO

    The Gens have now lost eight in a row.

    WHL

    Vancouver Giants 8 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 3
    C/W James Wright, VAN: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 4-7-11, +4, 4 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    Vancouver scored four times in the third period to break open a close game with Seattle. The Giants, who are 1-0 on their 10-game Olympic road trip, chased potential 2010 first rounder Calvin Pickard from the Seattle net just over six minutes into the third period.

  • 5 years 14 weeks ago

    A costly third period penalty by Mitch Fritz ends up being the difference.

    NOR-1
    ALB-2

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Parrish, (14) (McGinnis, Fadden), 4:16
    ALB Bowman, (12) (McBain, Micflikier), 7:43

    Third Period
    ALB Rodney, (5) (Tlusty, McBain), 9:11 (PP)

    It was a costly loss in the standings because Albany now has a 6 point lead on Norfolk for 2nd in the division with 1 game in hand. It also may have been costly from a player personnel standpoint as Ryan Craig hurt his leg in the third period. Given his history of knee injuries, it always is scary whenever Craig has to limp off the ice.

    Norfolk was outshot 31-23 in the game, as it was a superb defensive effort from Albany.

    Nazem Kadri (Leafs 1/09) assisted on four of the five Knights goals.

    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    The Giants completed a weekend sweep of Chilliwack. Wright registered a goal and three assists in the two games. Vancouver will now embark on a 10-game road trip to make room for Olympic hockey in their home city.

    The Lightning enter the Olympic Break with a thud.

    TB-2
    NYR-5

    Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TB 15:33, Stamkos 35 (Malone, Downie)(PP)
    TB 17:03, Downie 15 (Stamkos, Tanguay)

    Second Period
    NYR 1:40, Avery 7 (PS)
    NYR 6:07, Prospal 14 (Staal, Christensen)
    NYR 12:06, Christensen 4 (Prospal, Rozsival)
    NYR 13:52, Christensen 5 (unassisted)

    Third Period
    NYR 19:45, Drury 10 (unassisted)(EN)

    I don't know how to explain these last three games other than immaturity. It's a young team, and they see vacation time coming up, and the intensity and attention to detail just wasn't there for 60 minutes in each game. I hope these three losses don't end up being the difference in making the playoffs. They could have won all three games. They had a bad first period against Boston, and bad second periods against the Islanders and Rangers. So, instead of getting some points in these games, the Lightning went 0-for-12, and rather than fighting for 6th in the conference they're down tied for 9th.

    It's a good time for a mini training camp.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Gatineau Olympiques 2
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season Totals: 52 GP, 12-36-48, +34, 52 PIM

    Barberio set a new career high for assists in a season Saturday. He’s already set a high for points and is three off his previous best for goals. He's light years ahead of his previous plus/minus best (plus-9).

    OHL

    Niagara IceDogs 4 @ Belleville Bulls 3
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 15-13-28, +4, 31 PIM
    With Bulls: 15 GP, 6-4-10, -11, 12 PIM
    With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 50 GP, 17-12-29, -15, 41 PIM
    With Bulls: 37 GP, 15-11-26, -13, 23 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    DeCoste extended his point streak to five games. He’s registered a point in seven of his last nine games. Panik scored early in the third to pull the Bulls within one at 4-3, but they couldn’t complete the comeback.

    Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5 @ Barrie Colts 4
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, E, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Blake Parlett)
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 37-24-61, +36, 52 PIM

    Unexpected stat of the night: This was Hutchings’ first assist since January 2nd and second since December 18. He had 34 assists last season. Hutchings is a frequent visitor to the scoresheet, so the low assist (lately) total is a bit of a surprise. This was a big road win for the Majors, who sit in second, (well) behind Barrie in the Eastern Conference. Those two are in a class by themselves in the conference.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 6 @ Red Deer Rebels 1
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 54 GP, 23-23-46, -2, 92 PIM
    With Regina: 26 GP, 10-10-20, +6, 40 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Former Lightning prospect and WHL overager Torrie Jung (8-25-2-5, 3.46, .894, 1 SO) started the game for Edmonton, but only lasted two periods. Ashton has seven points in his last seven games.

    Vancouver Giants 4 @ Chilliwack Bruins 2
    C/WJames Wright, VAN: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 2-6-8, +4, 4 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    Wright (pictured) is back over a point-per-game pace for the Giants, who play at home Sunday (2/14) before going on a 10-game road trip.

  • 5 years 14 weeks ago

    Union Dutchmen 3 @ Harvard Crimson 4
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 25 GP, 9-10-19, +2, 26 PIM

    Killorn’s goals gave Harvard leads of 3-0 and 4-0, then the Crimson hung on as the Dutchmen scored three late goals, including two in the final 31 seconds.

    Merrimack Warriors 3 @ No.17 Vermont Catamounts 2
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

    A tough loss for Vermont to a team that came into the game five games under .500. Only getting one point from the weekend series – a 2-2 tie Friday – will hurt. Marshall started the game centering the fourth line. He’s been playing a lot of wing this year.

    Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ Northern Michigan Wildcats 2
    D Luke Witkowski , WMU: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 26 GP, 2-4-6, -10, 59 PIM

    Witkowski missed his second straight game for the Broncos. The Wildcats scored with 11 seconds left to steal the win.

    No Lashoff? No Parrish? No problem.

    LOW-1
    NOR-5

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for the win. He's now 5-6-1 on the season with 1 shutout, a 2.01 GAA, and a rock solid .925 sv%. He's actually got better numbers than Tokarski.

    First Period
    LOW Palmieri, (18) (Vasyunov, Walter), 12:48
    NOR Fornataro, (7) (Craig, Fadden), 17:33

    Second Period
    NOR Simek, (15) (Szczechura), 12:16
    NOR Craig, (15) (Tyrell, Szczechura), 17:25
    NOR Craig, (16) (Fadden, Wishart), 18:39 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Mihalik, (1) (Tyrell, Hall), 16:01

    Ryan Craig, Paul Szczechura, and Vladimir Mihalik were the game's three stars. It was another banner night for the Presov Mafia between Janus' win, and both Juraj Simek, and Mihalik's goals. Mihalik's marker was his first of the season, and with a +3 night he jumped to +1 for the season.

    Lowell got former Lightning d-man Cory Murphy back for this game, so they dressed 5 natural defensemen for this game rather than the 4 from last night, but it didn't matter. Even with Matt Lashoff out for a second straight game attending to family matters and Mark Parrish held out, presumably for a recall to the Lightning, the Admirals still dominated the Devils.

    Oh, and Dana Tyrell had his second multi-point game of the season. Mitch Fadden had his third.

    Norfolk remains in 3rd place in the East Division, 4 points behind 2nd place Albany, which dismantled Binghamton 7-0 tonight. Albany holds 1 game in hand. They widened their lead on 4th place Adirondack to 6 points after the Phantoms fell to Portland 5-4. Adirondack has 3 games in hand. They are now tied at 52 points with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after the Penguins upset Hershey 5-0 tonight. So the Pens are 6 points back of Norfolk with 2 games in hand. In 6th place is Syracuse, which lost 2-0 tonight to Manchester. They're 8 points behind Norfolk with 2 games in hand. All the way in 7th place in Bighamton, which is now 11 points back of Norfolk with 5 games in hand.

    Norfolk's win moves them 1 point ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic Division, so the Admirals are starting to take the crossover off the table. Even if they finish 3rd in the East Division, finishing ahead of the crossover 5th place Atlantic team is critical for the Admirals if they want to avoid a date with Hershey in the first round of the playoffs. 5th in the Atlantic is now a 3-way logjam with Providence, Hartford, and Bridgeport all at 57 points. Providence knocked off Springfield 3-1 tonight and Bridgeport beat Hartford 6-4 to create the three team pile-up. Both Providence and Hartford have 1 game in hand on Norfolk.

    Norfolk's next game is on Monday, which will be an epic clash in Albany against the River Rats. An Admirals win could pull the team to within 2 points of 2nd place in the East Division.

    There needs to be some soul searching in the Lightning locker room regarding the team's commitment to competing in the defensive third of the rink.

    TB-4
    NYI-5

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 5 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NYI 7:31, Comeau 7 (Schremp)
    TB 11:14, Stamkos 34 (St. Louis, Foster)
    TB 14:29, Lundin 2 (Stamkos)

    Second Period
    NYI 4:26, Weight 1 (Okposo)
    TB 12:27, Thompson 2 (Tanguay, Halpern)
    NYI 16:12, Okposo 13 (Tavares, Sutton)
    NYI 17:12, Park 5 (Comeau, Biron)

    Third Period
    TB 2:57, Downie 14 (Ohlund, St. Louis)
    NYI Islanders 17:38, Park 6 (Weight, Moulson)

    You know, just a few days ago I was thinking the Olympic Break would be a bad thing for breaking up the momentum the Lightning had. Now I'm thinking the team could use the mini training camp to go back over some basics in their defensive third. Their play in the first against Boston was terrible, and their play in the second today against the Islanders was equally putrid. It's one of the rare times I've seen the team play that loose two games in a row this season. Usually Tocchet and the coaching staff have been good about fixing it quickly. Lets hope they pull it together by tomorrow against the Rangers, because they're shooting themselves in the foot repeatedly with regard to the standings by losing these 4-point conference games.
