    The shot totals don't reflect it, but I thought that, on the balance, the Lightning outplayed the Rangers. They had excellent puck movement and puck possession, even on the much maligned power play, and they had a lot of good chances. Unfortunately, the Rangers got kind of a lucky goal to tie the game at 3, and once you get to the 4-on-4 in OT, the smallest mistakes can end up in the back of your net with that much open ice. It speaks well that the Lightning could have such a competitive showing against one of the best teams in the East, but moral victories count for nothing at this time of year.

    Brett Connolly had an assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 3:52. His next game will mark his graduation from prospect status on Bolt Prospects, at which point we'll finally be able to move on our Midterm Rankings update.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and was +1 in 6:01.

    The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned defenseman Evan Oberg to the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League today, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced. He was recalled yesterday prior to the Lightning’s game against the Los Angeles Kings and was a healthy scratch.

    Oberg, 6-foot, 191 pounds, was acquired by the Lightning with Mike Kostka from the Florida Panthers on December 2 in exchange for James Wright and Mike Vernace. He made his Lightning debut on January 24 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Oberg has played in 28 AHL games this season with Norfolk and the San Antonio Rampage, recording three goals and 12 points with a plus-4 rating. He has played in 16 games with the Admirals, notching three goals and 10 points with a plus-6. Oberg has played in 145 career AHL games with the Admirals, Rampage, Rochester Americans and Manitoba Moose. He has also skated in five career Calder Cup Playoff games, all with Manitoba during the 2009-10 season.

    A native of Forestburg, Alberta, Oberg has played in five career NHL games with Tampa Bay and the Vancouver Canucks. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by Vancouver on April 10, 2009. Oberg was then acquired by Florida with the Canucks’ third-round choice in 2013 in exchange for Chris Higgins on February 28, 2011. Before joining the professional ranks he played at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

    OHL

    Oshawa Generals 5 @ Peterborough Petes 2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 0-14-14, +5, 22 PIM
    With Oshawa: 11 GP, 0-3-3, +3, 4 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Canucks first rounder Nicklas Jensen scored his 23rd goal of the season halfway through the third period to break a 2-2 and propel the Gens to a 5-2 road win. Oshawa added two empty net goals late in the third to give the game its final score. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch was on the ice for all three of Oshawa’s third period goals but didn’t figure in the scoring. He finished the game plus-2. The Gens moved above the Petes for second in the East Division. They are 16 points behind Ottawa for the top spot.

    Helluva time to face a hot goalie.

    LA-3
    TB-1

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 20 shots for the loss. He didn't play badly, but it was one of those annoying games where it's tough when you have to work three times harder than your opponent for goals.

    First Period
    LA Kopitar (17), (Greene, Williams), 2:47

    Second Period
    TB Stamkos (35), (Purcell, Brewer), 7:49
    LA Clifford (4), (Scuderi), 10:16
    LA Penner (5), (Richards, Stoll), 17:46

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

    They didn't find the scoresheet tonight, but Lecavalier and St. Louis again looked magical tonight. I like their chances against a more mortal goaltender when they're playing that well.

    It was another game where I would argue the game was lost on the power play. Right after Stamkos scores the tying goal at 1-1 the Lightning get a PP and promptly look ineffective en route to surrendering the breakaway goal at the expiration of the penalty. The Lightning are starting to do everything right but they're still losing points because of how terrible this power play is. The goaltending and defense have been personnel issues. The power play is a coaching issue, and Guy Boucher needs to figure out how to coach it up better than his staff has to this point.

    Now the Lightning move onto a road trip that will likely decide to what degree they're sellers at the trade deadline, which will likely dictate how the rest of this season goes. I'm not optimistic after tonight, given how bad this team has been on the road this season.

    J.T. Wyman was -1 with 1 shot in 2:35.

    Harvard Crimson 1 vs. No.1 Boston University Terriers 3 (Beanpot)

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 1-0-1, -1, 2 PIM (high sticking), 6 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 15-15-30, +4, 35 PIMs

    Killorn’s 15th goal of the year cut Boston University’s lead to 3-1 late in the second period, but Harvard couldn’t mount a comeback to beat the new No.1 in America (USCHO poll) and advance to the Beanpot finals next week. They’ll play in the consolation game next Monday in Killorn's final Beanpot game. Goal No.15 for Killorn tied his career high set last year, and his 30th point established a new career high for the senior. He has improved his point totals every year: 14, 20, 29, 30 (and counting). Last year’s 29 points were scored in 34 games.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 2 @ Oshawa Generals 4

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 37 GP, 0-14-14, +4, 22 PIM
    With Oshawa: 10 GP, 0-3-3, +1, 2 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Schemitsch played his 10th game in an Oshawa uniform and helped the Gens to a 4-2 home win over Guelph. Kevin Bailie improved to 12-8-1 as Oshawa’s goaltender. He split time with former Lightning prospect Michael Zador in recent years before Zador was traded out of Oshawa. Zador (pictured), who was take before Jaroslav Janus and never signed by the Lightning, appears to be out of hockey now (no team listed with HockeyDB). He won an OHL championship with Owen Sound in 2011.

    It's so hard to beat the same team twice in two days, and even harder when you whip them in the first game, for whatever reason.

    NOR-2
    SPR-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 31 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SPR Calvert, (10) (Atkinson, Regner), 9:52 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Labrie, (8) (Smith, Barberio), 14:40
    NOR Ouellet, (10) (Kostka, Oberg), 18:44 (PP)

    Third Period
    SPR Cullity, (1) (Calvert, Amadio), 11:29
    SPR Mayorov, (5) (Joudrey, Regner), 11:59
    SPR St. Pierre, (9) (Giroux), 15:16

    Allowing 3 goals in the final frame to lose the game leads one to believe the Admirals ran out of gas playing their third game in less than 72 hours. And, again, it proves what an old wise man once told me: it's so damned hard to beat the same team twice in two days. And the caveat I've learned over the years is, it's even harder when you win big in the first game because mentally you lose the edge and the urgency and mentally they're going out with more edge and more determination not to get embarrassed again.

    Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton played a 3 point game today, so the loss to Springfield hurts that extra little bit. The Ads are now 6 points back of the Pens for the division lead and 2 points back of the Bears for second place.

    Reading Royals 5 @ Florida Everblades 4 (OT)

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 0-3-3, +5, 2 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-0-0, -2, 1 SOG, 2 PIM (high sticking)

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 14-11-0-2, 2.99 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    Shane Owen, who shut out Reading on Friday, stopped just 17 of 22 on Saturday night as the Royals topped the ‘Blades in overtime. Reading scored the game tying goal while shorthanded with under two minutes left in the game. That hurts. At least Florida gets a point. Remember a couple weeks ago when they had a chance to take over sole possession of first in the South Division? They’re now 11 points out of first and in last, six points behind Greenville.
