    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.

    The Lightning squander a rare opportunity to begin to turn their season around.

    PIT-6
    TB-3

    Mathieu Garon allowed 5 goals on 43 shots for the loss. The inability to make key saves in the third period when the club desperately needed them may have contributed to the writing of their obituary this year.

    First Period
    PIT Neal (23), (Martin, Malkin)(PP), 2:43
    PIT Park (3), (unassisted), 10:38

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    PIT Neal (24), (Malkin, Sullivan)(PP), 0:34
    TB Gilroy (1), (Stamkos, St. Louis), 2:00
    TB Malone (9), (Lecavalier, Purcell)(PP), 4:53
    TB Purcell (9), (Lecavalier, Gervais), 6:50
    PIT Malkin (19), (unassisted), 7:38
    PIT Malkin (20), (Orpik), 9:27
    PIT Malkin (21), (unassisted)(EN), 19:04

    Vincent Lecavalier was the game's third star. I've been waiting for the kind of emotional outburst he showed in the third period today chasing down Malkin and throwing some fisticuffs. Frustration? Sure. But the Lightning are too robotic, and they need more than just Steve Downie to show a little fire. I didn't mind it. I wouldn't mind seeing more of it, in fact.

    A 3 goal lead in the third period, as I've said many times, should be a death sentence in pro hockey. And, if you manage to be the team that overcomes such a deficit to win that slim 1 in 100 times it happens, well, it can have a lasting positive effect on a team's confidence. The Lightning desperately needed the kind of bounce in faith they would've gotten from completing their comeback from 3-0 down this afternoon. And, they were right there. It was there for the taking. The failure to convert the opportunity may have been the final nail in the coffin of the team's playoff hopes this year. They needed that. Badly.

    Brett Connolly had 1 hit in 7:08. He's been playing hard and he's been close to creating chances, but they're not quite there for Brett like they were early in the season.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 2 hits, 1 blocked shot, and 5 for fighting in 2:48. That's the kind of stat line I expected to see.

    Chicago Express 3 @ Florida Everblades 4 (SO)

    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, +2, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-3-3, +5, 0 PIM

Charles Landry (pictured with the now defunct Montreal Juniors) played his sixth game for the ‘Blades; he was reassigned by the Norfolk Admirals earlier in the day. Kevin Quick went scoreless in his second ECHL game since the 2009 playoffs. He failed to convert his shootout attempt. Landry did not get into the shootout. Florida is ties for first in the South Division with Gwinnett.

    The Pink Panik!

    CT-2
    NOR-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. He earned his 16th win of the season and is now clearly in workhorse mode after playing both ends of the back-to-back this weekend.

    First Period
    NOR Panik, (7) (Oberg, Johnson), 13:45

    Second Period
    NOR Panik, (8) , 10:20
    CT Tessier, (7) (Klassen), 15:32
    CT Voros, (4) (Avery), 16:21

    Third Period
    NOR Fornataro, (5) (Kostka, Conacher), 4:14
    NOR Angelidis, (7) (Barberio), 17:21

    Richard Panik, Matt Fornataro, and Mike Kostka were the game's three stars. Panik now has 4 goals and 7 points in his last 7 games. The thought that Panik may finally be putting it together in his rookie season of pro hockey has to make the Lightning absolutely giddy. It's already an embarrassment of riches in Norfolk considering how well the team's other rookies have played.

    Tonight was Norfolk's annual "Pink the Rink" promotion.

    With both Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton winning today, the Admirals managed to maintain position in 2nd in the division, 6 points back of the Bears. Norfolk draws Albany in Albany on Wednesday with a chance to exorcise the demons from a couple of weekends back when the team went on a mini-tailspin.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    HPK 1 @ JYP 2
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 23/24, 1.00 GAA, .958 sv%
    Season totals: 21 GP, 15-6-0, 6 SO, 1.48 GAA, .937 sv%

    With Riku Helenius getting both ends of the back-to-back, it's fair to say he's moved past Joni Myllykoski and is now the clear #1 for JYP. He stopped 23 today in the club's 2-1 win over HPK and was named second star in the match. We may need to start the official campaign to bring Helenius back to North America on Bolt Prospects the way things are going. JYP has climbed into the top-6 in the SM-liiga and now faces Karpat on Tuesday.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 4 @ Novokuznetsk 3 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Win, 23/27, 2.77 GAA, .889 sv%
    Season totals: 25 GP, 13-8-0, 3 SO, 2.58 GAA, .919 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin stopped 2 of 3 shooters in the shootout session as Cherepovets defeated Novokuznetsk 4-3. As a reminder, Bolt Prospects tracks goaltender wins and losses according to North American scoring standards, so while Koshechkin doesn't get credit with a clean win by KHL statistics, he gets one in ours. Cherepovets faces Amur next on Monday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Ekaterinburg Jr. 5 @ Chelyabinsk Jr. 2
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 27 GP, 7-9-16, +9, 22 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 7 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov was sent down to Chelyabinsk's MHL team and took a minor penalty and was -1 in their loss to Ekaterinburg Jr. The big club for Chelyabinsk plays Mytischi on Sunday. Chelyabinsk Jr. doesn't play again until Thursday against Magnitogorsk Jr.

    Nikita Kucherov and CSKA Jr. don't play again until Wednesday against Minsk Jr.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Frolunda 1 @ Lulea 2 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 36 GP, 10-7-17, +7, 6 PIM

    Johan Harju took a minor for holding and failed on his only shootout attempt in Lulea's 2-1 shootout win over Frolunda. Harju has fallen to 4th on the team in scoring. With 17 games left in the regular season, Lulea sits in 3rd in the league, 5 points back of Skelleftea for the top spot on the league table. Lulea draws Timra next on Thursday.

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 0-4-4, +5, 39 PIM

    The Broncos bounced back after being swept last weekend by No. 1 Minnesota-Duluth and took game one of the weekend series with Notre Dame.

    No. 14 Union Dutchmen 2 vs. Harvard Crimson 0
    Fenway Park

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 15 GP, 9-9-18, even, 31 PIM

    The Crimson are now winless in five after the loss to Union. They play Saturday night against No. 6 BU.

    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, even, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 11 GP, 1-2-3, even, 6 PIM

    F Matthew Peca, QUI: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 5-11-16, even, 8 PIM

    Cornell is now unbeaten in four straight. They play at Princeton Saturday night. Quinnipiac is home against No. 12 Colgate.

    USHL

    Fargo Force 8 @ Tri-City Storm 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 9 saves on 12 shots in 9:50
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 9 GP, 3-6-0, 3.54 GAA, .902 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox took the loss in another snowman game – his second in a row. He didn’t survive the whole game in either contest. The University of Minnesota commit had won two in a row prior to the two 8-1 losses. Tri-City was outshot 47-24 at home in the loss.

    QMJHL

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 5 @ Gatineau Olympiques 4 (SO)

    OHL

    Kingston Frontenacs 4 @ London Knights 1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 37 GP, 17-30-47, +13, 36 PIM

    Namestnikov had an assist on Tommy Hughes’ first OHL goal, but London was shocked at home 4-1 to Kingston. With the OHL trade deadline come and gone, the Knights loaded up with skill and have a very good shot at not only winning the OHL title, but the Memorial Cup. Of course, despite all that talent they were beaten at home and the one guy who scored was a defenseman who’s never scored before. London did outshoot Kingston 50-22 in the game. World Juniors veteran Igor Bobkov (Ducks) – who played for London last season – stopped 49 shots for the Frontenacs.

    Brampton Battalion 2 @ Oshawa Generals 3 (OT)

    Chicago Express 2 @ Florida Everblades 4

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-1-1, E, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 13-9-0-1, 2.97 GAA, .902 sv%, 1 SO

    Nagle got a rare night off in 2012 as former Everblades No.1 John Muse was back with the club and in the nets Friday night. Muse stopped 28 of 30 shots to earn the win and First Star honors. Former Lightning prospect and current Norfolk Admirals property Kevin Quick had an assist in his first ECHL game since he played for Elmira in the 2009 playoffs. Quick is coming off a lengthy absence from the ice due to injury.
