    Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 7

    Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM

    OHL

    London Knights 6 @ Plymouth Whalers 3

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-3-5, +1, 2 PIM

    Playing in his home state, Namestnikov scored his second of the year in the third period to help his Knights teammates to a 6-3 win over Plymouth.

    We're officially into the dog days of preseason.

    MTL-5
    TB-1

    Mathieu Garon took the loss for the Lightning.

    First Period
    10:05 MTL Gionta, (unassisted) (SH)

    Second Period
    2:19 MTL Gomez, (Cammalleri, Cole)(PP)
    3:49 TB Lecavalier, (Purcell, Downie)
    5:39 MTL Darche, (Spacek, Diaz)
    8:24 MTL Cole, (unassisted)

    Third Period
    12:55 MTL Cammalleri, (Plekanec)

    Just as I wouldn't read too much positive into the Lightning's last win, I wouldn't read too much negative into the spanking they've taken tonight. The forwards will be good when the season starts and more nights than not Roloson will be good. The problems are obvious with the backline and the fourth line, and improvement will be necessary as the season goes along. But, to this point, there's no reason to get too high or too low on this team heading toward opening night.

    Season totals: 7 GP, 4-2-6, +2, 0 PIM

    Oscar Hedman, older brother of Lightning d-man Victor Hedman, had a power play assist for Timra in their 4-1 win over Lulea. Lulea faces Linkopings on Tuesday.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 5

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 5 PIM

    Janosik’s power play assist gave him three helpers in three games. Gatineau was down 3-0 by the mid-way point of the game and had to play catch-up all night.

    Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Quebec Remparts 5

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 0 Hit
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    Milan and the Wildcats played on the same rink the Lightning practiced on earlier in the day. Patrick Roy’s Remparts skated to an easy 5-1 win Friday night. Milan had his first point of the season in his second game. Moncton was already down 5-0 at the time, unfortunately. The Lightning are in Quebec City to play the Canadiens Saturday night.

    OHL

    Sudbury Wolves 2 @ London Knights 8

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM

    This is hard to understand. The Knights have scored eight goals in two of their three games this season, yet of those 16 goals, Namestnikov has only one assist toward the total. The good news for London is they’re getting it done without the first rounder’s offensive production. There’s enough talent around him that Namestnikov should have a big season. Finishing on the minus side of even in an 8-2 win is not going to help much. Second year player Ryan Rupert (2012) had a hatter for London.
    0-0-1

    Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 4 PIM

    Schemitsch had an assist for the second straight game, but his Owen Sound Attack fell in a rematch of last year’s OHL championship won by the Attack. The Majors, last year’s Memorial Cup hosts, got the better of Owen Sound in the Cup tournament and finished runner-up to St. John last May. Leafs 2011 first rounder Stuart Percy had two goals for the Majors.

    Late collapse.

    NOR-2
    STJ-5

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals for the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR 2:44 Johnson
    STJ 19:08 Matte, (Melichiori)

    Third Period
    STJ 8:30 Murray

    STJ 17:36 Lampe, (Redmond)(PP)
    STJ 18:05 Redmond (PP)
    STJ 19:19 Armstrong (EN)

    The star of these two preseason games for the Ads was Tyler Johnson, who had a couple of helpers and a goal over the past two nights. You don't score a ton like this young man did in the WHL without having some idea how to play the game. It wouldn't shock me in the slightest to see him put up a 20+ goal 50+ point rookie campaign.

    Game recap from NorfolkAdmirals.com.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 5 @ HIFK 2
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 0-3-0, 0 SO, 3.10 GAA, .888 sv%

    Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had a helper in JYP's 5-2 thumping of HIFK. HIFK features former Lightning draft picks Eero Somervuori and Erikki Rajamaki, who were both scoreless in the match. JYP leaps out of the basement over 3 teams into 11th on the SM-liiga table with the win. They face SaiPa on Tuesday.

    KHL (Russia):
    Spartak Moscow 2 @ CSKA 1 (SO)
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 7 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    Why do I hate it when 18 year old Russians stay in the KHL rather than coming to North America to develop? This is why. Nikita Kucherov was scoreless and -1 in a sparing 4:59 of ice time in CSKA's 2-1 shootout loss to Spartak. Young players need to play to get better. Period. CSKA faces Novosibirsk next on Sunday. Here's hoping Kucherov actually gets some ice time.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 5 @ Togliatti Jr. 6 (SO)
    Nikita Nesterov. Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 10 GP, 4-4-8, +10, 10 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov was scoreless in Chelyabinsk Jr.'s 6-5 shootout loss to Togliatti Jr. Chelyabinsk Jr. plays Yaroslavl Jr. next Friday.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 2

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
    Last Season’s Totals: 68 GP, 14-24-38, -26, 76 PIM

    Milan was plus-1 in the game, fresh off spending training camp with the Lightning. He was awarded for his good play at camp with an NHL contract that will kick in when he turns pro next season. Milan and Phoenix Coyote first rounder Brandon Gormley – who was thought to be a likely choice for the Lightning with their 2010 first rounder – both played for the first time in the game. Gormley had a goal. Shawinigan is the Memorial Cup hosts this season and is ranked No.7 in the country in the latest CHL MasterCard Top-10. Peter Sakaris (undrafted) had both goals for the Cataractes.

    OHL

    Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Barrie Colts 1 (SO)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM

    Schemitsch earned a power play assist on the game tying goal scored early in the third period to help the Attack to a 2-1 shootout win over the home side, Barrie. Schemitsch did not participate in the shootout. Schemitsch had 40 points as an OHL rookie two years ago, but due to injuries and a different role, fell to 20 points last season.

    Lightning looking strong for the start of the season, but still room for improvement.

    TB-4
    MTL-0

    Dwayne Roloson stopped all 24 shots he faced. He looks sharp. Ready to go.

    First Period
    TB 9:15 Stamkos, (Gervais)
    TB 11:51 Stamkos, (St. Louis, Gilroy)

    Second Period
    TB 16:43 Connolly, (St. Louis, Kubina)

    Third Period
    TB 18:49, Connolly, (Malone)

    The game could've been a 6-0 final. Vincent Lecavalier had a soft goal by Peter Budaj taken off the board by a quick whistle and another play by Tom Pyatt that was likely a goal wasn't counted. Overall, it was a very strong effort by the forwards and goaltenders, but there's room for improvement on the backline. They looked a little sloppy in their own end turning the puck over on breakouts and there was a 10 minute period at the end of the first period they were living dangerously within the first 10 feet of their blueline in the Lightning zone. That's got to get cleaned up. The Canadiens hit a few posts tonight and Roloson was sharp. That won't always be the case, though. Boucher has things to harp about on this game tape.

    The question of what to do with Brett Connolly is an interesting one. Bob McKenzie is saying he's likely to start the season with the Lightning and at least get a regular season audition, and it's hard to argue with that because he keeps scoring. That said, he doesn't pass the eyeball test, to me, when it comes to having NHL strength on the puck. I will say this, though, if he doesn't stick in Tampa this year he'll probably the Calder Trophy favorite going into next season.

    The rest of the bubble forwards had a tougher time of it, in my opinion. Pyatt got a goal waved off so he was probably the best of the rest. Dana Tyrell skated really well but had some turnovers and stubbed his toe in some situations where he could've been more dangerous offensively. Blair Jones' slow first step really stood out in this game where there was a lot of flow. He hits everything that moves, and he's an honest player, but he looked like a SUV on a street full of sports cars tonight.

    Mattias Ritola looks to be in and Connolly may get his NHL regular season audition and Pyatt is probably going to make it. Tyrell and Jones may not make it to the finish line, though.
