    Streaking Lightning extinguish Stars. (Cliche headlines are fun.)

    TB-2
    DAL-1

    Mathieu Garon allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. He shook off a little collision in the middle of the game to handle his business.

    First Period
    TB Purcell (10), (St. Louis, Gervais), 18:48

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    DAL Wandell (3), (Eriksson), 1:22
    TB Purcell (11), (St. Louis, Lecavalier), 3:36

    Teddy Purcell and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    Karri Lehtonen saved the Stars from getting blown out early. The Lightning played one of their best periods of the season in the first, and their puck movement on the power play, in particular, was dazzling. They deserved to have a bigger lead going into the third and it was a relief that they held onto their 1 goal margin.

    Brett Connolly had 4 penalty minutes in 6:28 and they were kind of lazy penalties. Bad rookie. Bad.

    Trevor Smith had 2 hits in 4:41. Norfolk would like to clone him and send one of the two back to them right now.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 4 hits and a fight in 6:01. For those of you who were making a point to exalt Blair Jones' physical play even though he was averaging 1 hit a night: this is the kind of a stat line a 4th line lumberjack needs to put up. Keep chopping wood, Pierre-Cedric. He showed some nice technique on the short punches in close quarters at the start of the brawl with Nystrom.

    NOR Angelidis, (10) (Ouellet, Fornataro), 4:51
    NOR Panik, (9) (Devos, Palat), 19:54

    It was a tough spot for the Admirals, having to make due with so few forwards and moving defensemen to play out of position. It got worse when they lost Mark Barberio tonight to an injury. Kudos to them for sticking to it in the third and making it a bit more respectable. At least there was a Panik attack.

    Norfolk heads to Hartford tomorrow to play the Whale.

    Norfolk's d-corps continues to surpass all expectations.

    NOR-5
    ALB-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 28 shots for the win. He moved to 17-9-0 on the season for the win.

    First Period
    ALB Veilleux, (6) (Urbom, Berube), 5:49

    Mark Barberio and Mike Kostka were the game's second and third stars. Barberio now holds a 5 point edge in the race to be the AHL's top scoring defenseman. He has 5 goals and 37 points in 38 games. With his multi-point game tonight, Kostka has moved into the top-20 among AHL defensemen in scoring with 6 goals and 20 points in 35 games. The bulk of that scoring has come since he joined Norfolk in the James Wright trade. He had just 2 goals and 6 points with San Antonio prior to the deal, but he's had 4 goals and 14 points since coming to Norfolk. Bear in mind Kostka had 16 goals and 54 points in 80 games with Rochester a year ago, which was tied for third in the league. So, the Admirals legitimately boast two of the absolute best offensive d-men in the league, which is part of the reason they're one of the most deadly offensive powers in the AHL this side of the Hershey Bears.

    Tonight's victory was a bit of sweet revenge for a Norfolk team that had a temporary slump started by a third period collapse at home against the Devils just a few weeks ago. For the Admirals to overcome a 3-1 first period deficit that featured a Stephane Veilleux hat trick represented a nice bit of payback for the team.

    Norfolk moves within 4 points of the Bears in the East Division standings with the victory. They continue their road trip in Syracuse on Friday.

    Heroes (just for one day).

    BOS-3
    TB-5

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TB Lecavalier (18), (Gilroy, St. Louis), 7:11

    Second Period
    BOS Horton (15), (unassisted), 4:28
    TB Pyatt (5), (Downie, Gilroy), 14:11

    TB Moore (4), (Malone, Downie), 16:15
    TB Stamkos (31), (Lecavalier)(EN), 19:39

    Dominic Moore, Tom Pyatt, and Ryan Malone were the game's three stars.

    It took 44 games before the Lightning finally started to play with some pride in the 45th. 1 game in 45 isn't going to fix everything that's gone wrong, but tonight the Lightning are heroes once again.

    Brett Connolly had 2 shots and 1 hit in 6:45.

    Trevor Smith was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 4:53.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 5 hits in 3:35. Now, that's the kind of production the Lightning signed him for.

    Riku Helenius left today's game after 20 minutes after allowing 2 goals on 11 shots in JYP's 5-4 OT loss to Karpat. Initial reports indicate the hook was a coaches decision and not an injury. Ex-Bruins draft pick Ivan Huml scored the overtime winner and also had 2 assists for Karpat. JYP faces HIFK next on Friday.

    QMJHL

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 1 @ Victoriaville Tigres 8

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 0-6-6, -13, 35 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 7 GP, 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    The Tigres built a snowman on the scoreboard at home on Sunday with an 8-1 win over the Drakkar. Brandon Hynes (undrafted) had four goals and an assist for Victoriaville. He was a Lightning camper and member of the Bolts' Traverse City team in 2010. Milan’s scoreless and shotless streak reached five games.

    OHL

    London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (roughing)
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 17-33-50, +14, 38 PIM

    Namestnikov extended his point streak to four games with an assist Sunday in the Soo against USA World Juniors goaltender Jack Campbell (Stars). London scored twice on the power play and twice shorthanded – including a penalty shot by Ryan Rupert (2012). Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and two assists for First Star honors. The story has been told many times, but once again the Bolts let Griffith go back to London after the south Florida rookie tournament and before Lightning training camp started. He was listed on the official Lightning camp roster. Griffith exploded this year and one London media member told me he is “the real deal.” If the Lightning are to get him in camp next year, they’ll have to draft him as Griffith will enter the NHL draft for a second straight year. He went undrafted in 2011. That won't happen again. Griffith is fourth in the league with 61 points (32 goals) in 42 games. Namestnikov is tied for 13th. Griffith is second in goals and his linemate, Namestnikov, is fifth in assists.

    Sudbury Wolves 3 @ Oshawa Generals 2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-11-11, +1, 20 PIM
    With Oshawa: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Schemitsch is still looking for his first point in an Oshawa uniform.
