    Norfolk gels quickly after a slow start in come-from-behind victory.

    NOR-3
    BNG-2

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 35 shots for the win, including a penalty shot top on Andre Petterson. He didn't get a star for his efforts, but he absolutely gave his team a chance to win tonight. Tic moves to 24-11-0 on the season, tying Ben Bishop of Peoria for the league lead in wins with Bishop still in action tonight.

    First Period
    BNG Hoffman, (13) (Locke), 1:34
    BNG Klinkhammer, (14) (Petersson, Gryba), 6:42 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Segal, (14) (Picard, Oberg), 0:15

    Third Period
    NOR Oberg, (5) , 6:27 (PP)
    NOR Labrie, (13) (Johnson, Conacher), 19:30

    Evan Oberg and Pierre-Cedric Labrie were the game's first and second stars. Oberg has 4 goals and 13 points in his last dozen games, and one can only speculate where he'd be in points had he not spent the better part of two months on a plane, waiting for a plane, or getting on and off a plane.

    Veteran Brandon Segal (pictured) scored a goal in his first game back with the Admirals since his acquisition from the Blackhawks organization, once again reaffirming that Brandon Segal is Hard to Kill.

    10 shots on goal tonight for Tyler Johnson. He didn't find the back of the net, but it darned sure wasn't for the lack of trying. He did get the primary assist on the game winner, though.

    With the win, Norfolk moves back into a tie for the East Division lead at 71 points with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. They also hold a 4 point lead now on the third place Hershey Bears with the Pens and Bears having burned all their games in hand, at the moment.

    It gets REALLY interesting now. Norfolk goes into Hershey tomorrow night with the opportunity to put the Bears 6 points back, and on Sunday night they'll have a pivotal matchup with the Penguins. Remember, Norfolk would very much prefer to win their division than face the possibility of a 4/5 matchup against the Pens or Bears in the first round. The road to the Calder Cup would be significantly easier for the Ads if they secure the first or second seed in the East.

    Running out of steam?

    TB-3
    WPG-4

    Mathieu Garon allowed 4 goals on 18 shots for the loss before giving way to Dwayne Roloson, who stopped all 15 shots he faced the rest of the way.

    First Period
    WPG Ladd (20), (Little, Wheeler), 7:11
    WPG Glass (5), (Thorburn, Flood), 14:59

    Second Period
    WPG Ladd (21), (Kane, Byfuglien)(PP), 1:36
    WPG Byfuglien (10), (Wheeler, Ladd)(PP), 2:48

    Third Period
    TB Stamkos (43), (Malone, Purcell)(PP), 11:00
    TB Purcell (16), (Stamkos), 19:06
    TB St. Louis (19), (Purcell, Stamkos)(PP), 19:51

    Martin St. Louis was the game's third star.

    It seemed like, through the first two periods, the emotion of the trade deadline changes finally gave way to the reality that this is a much less talented team than it was 1-2 weeks ago, especially when you factor in Lecavalier's injury. It would be simple to call the first 40 minutes a lack of effort, but I think it's more to the point to say the Lightning may be running on fumes now. That's too bad. They've got to be sick to their stomachs knowing where they could have been if they pulled out a win last night (within 3 points of the division lead, let alone the playoffs).

    Trevor Smith had 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 10:29.

    J.T. Wyman had 1 blocked shot in 7:48.

    Mike Angelidis had 1 shot and 2 hits in 7:02.

    Milan’s goal late in the second period cut Baie-Comeau’s lead to 3-2. The Tigres would eventually tie the game – twice – including Phillip Danault’s goal with 20 seconds left that sent the game to overtime. Milan’s goal was his second of the season. He had 14 last year as a rookie. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes scored the shootout winner. (Pictured: Milan's first goal of the year, scored against Gatineau. La Presse photo.)

    All you really need is Stammer and a dream.

    ANH-2
    TB-3

    Mathieu Garon stopped 28 of 30 for the win.

    First Period
    TB Stamkos (41), (Malone, Purcell), 0:28
    TB Stamkos (42), (Clark, Purcell), 17:58

    Second Period
    ANH Koivu (11), (Ryan, Fowler), 0:40
    TB Purcell (15), (Stamkos, Gilroy), 2:40
    ANH Ryan (22), (Koivu), 18:38

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Garon, Steven Stamkos, and Teddy Purcell were the game's three stars.

    For those keeping score at home, the Lightning have traded their 3rd line center, traded arguably their 2nd best defenseman, lost their 2nd line center and captain to injury, and traded a top-6 forward and gotten zero NHL roster players in return... and they keep winning. Tonight's win moves the Lightning to within 5 points of 8th place in the conference with 23 games left to go. Games. Ice. Not paper. You've read it here before.

    I would laugh my rear end off if the Lightning, flush with the potential of up to 6 top-60 draft picks this summer ready to deploy to get a goaltender and just about anything else Stevie Y desires, still rolled into the playoffs with Stamkos toting a Richard and a Ross Trophy. At that point, I'm sorry, he should by default be the Hart Trophy winner, too. Logically, that can't happen, but logic be damned. Another 20 games like these last 3 and this team's going to have beaten the house like a rented mule.

    Victor Hedman logged over 27 minutes of ice time tonight and was +1. You may not be Lidstrom yet, my friend, but once Yzerman's through trading you'll be getting Lidstrom's ice time.

    Trevor Smith was -1 with 2 hits in 11:14.

    J.T. Wyman played 12:26.

    Mike Angelidis had 1 shot and 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 5:28.
