    Left a point on the ice.

    BNG-5
    NOR-4

    Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 23 shots for the loss. It seems to me, at least in the short term, it may be time to make Dustin Tokarski the number one and quit rotating the netminders. Helenius is clearly on a cold streak.

    First Period
    BNG Kinrade, (2) (Svendsen), 6:16
    NOR Karsums, (3) (Wishart, Lundin), 16:36 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG Daugavins, (10) (Condra), 4:26
    NOR Wishart, (4) (Karsums, Bochenski), 13:04 (PP)
    BNG Hamel, (12) (St. Pierre, Smith), 14:37 (PP)

    Third Period
    BNG Smith, (5) (Keller, Daugavins), 0:15
    NOR Simek, (6) (Wishart), 12:31
    NOR Craig, (10) (Jackson, Karsums), 15:50
    BNG Smith, (6) (O'Brien), 17:36

    Ty Wishart and Martins Karsums were named the game's second and third stars. Wishart's 1 goal and 2 assist night was his first multi-point effort of the season and he now has 6 points in his last 6 games. He's a guy who was a big scorer from the backline in junior. Is his offensive ability finally starting to peek through? Karsums has exploded with 5 points in the two games against the Sens this weekend. He had just 6 points all season prior to last night's win.

    Matt Lashoff is now -16 in 26 games after a -2 night tonight. Oof.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 3-22-25, +12, 34 PIM

    Moncton had their seven-game win streak broken by the Eagles when rookie Brad Cuzner scored with half a period to go in the game. Moncton had just scored twice in the early third period to tie the game at two. Cuzner’s goal came less than a minute after the tying marker. Barberio’s plus-12 rating is two better than any other Wildcat.

    This wasn’t Janus’ best game, but he earned his second straight win. Sointu now has points in three straight games.

    Plymouth Whalers 3 @ Oshawa Generals 2
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 29 saves on 31 shots
    Season Totals: 25 GP, 11-10-2-1, 3.20 GAA, .902 sv%, 1 SO

    Plymouth was led by two Team Canada (WJC) cuts, Tyler Seguin (2 assists) and Matt Hackett (34 saves). Zador performed well after sitting for Oshawa’s last two games. Oshawa had won seven straight.

    WHL

    Light at the end of the tunnel?

    TB-6
    STL-3

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals in 26 shots for the win.

    First Period
    STL 10:04, Winchester 1 (Backes, Kariya)(PP)
    TB 10:37, St. Louis 7 (Tanguay, Lecavalier)

    Second Period
    TB 0:36, Stamkos 19 (Foster, St. Louis)
    TB 6:24, Foster 5 (Hedman, Malone)

    Third Period
    STL 3:58, Oshie 7 (Kariya, Sydor)
    TB 4:12, Halpern 6 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)
    STL 9:03, Tkachuk 7 (Boyes, McDonald)(PP)
    TB 11:15, Halpern 7 (Malone)
    TB 19:02, Stamkos 20 (St. Louis)(EN)

    I thought in the second period, in particular, the Lightning played with a determination and urgency that is very, very welcome to see. The team's puck movement was also particularly quick and crisp in that period. If they skate and pass the puck like that for 60 minutes a game here on out, they'll win a boat load of hockey games. In particular, Vincent Lecavalier was flying, and the team in general played with a chip on its shoulder. That's the kind of hockey I expected to see this season.

    It's a week to Christmas and Steven Stamkos has 20 goals. He's 19 years old. He won't be 20 until February. Think about that.

    Zenon Konopka was -1 in 6:45.

    Paul Szczechura had 1 shot, 3 hits, and was 44% on draws in 13:48.

    James Wright played 9:57.

    Blair Jones was +1 with a fight, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 10:27. He struggled a bit in his own end of the rink, but if you watched that second period you saw why we've been saying all along he could flourish under Rick Tocchet. He obliterated David Backes on a clean neutral zone hit and, when challenged, answered the bell pretty well again Carlo Colaiacavo. More importantly, there were times he showed hustle and strength on the puck in the forecheck, too, and his big screen on Kurtis Foster's goal helped give the Lightning a key goal that really put St. Louis behind the eight-ball the rest of the way.

    Victor Hedman had an assist and was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 24:17.

    Norfolk is combining good defense, good goaltending, and home ice advantage to win some key divisional games.

    BNG-1
    NOR-3

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 26 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Simek, (5) (Bochenski, Parrish), 10:14

    Second Period
    NOR Hall, (5) (Karsums, Lundin), 7:31

    Third Period
    BNG Bannister, (2) (Smith, Kudelka), 14:56 (PP)
    NOR Hall, (6) (Karsums, Craig), 19:12 (EN)

    Juraj Simek, Tokarski, and Adam Hall were the game's three stars.

    I still can't believe Drew Bannister is still playing hockey.

    In another example of Norfolk's exciting forward depth, Martins Karsums stepped up with a multi-point night tonight after only having 6 points through 27 games entering the night. You just knew a veteran with his speed and his track record of scoring at the AHL level was going to eventually start finding the scoresheet.

    OHL

    Brampton Battalion 1 @ Belleville Bulls 4
    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 11-8-19, -2, 33 PIM
    With Bulls: 18 GP, 9-7-16, E, 13 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    DeCoste broke a mini two-game scoring slump with his 11th goal of the season. His goal tied the game at one in the second period. DeCoste had 15 goals last year split between Brampton (8) and Sault Ste. Marie (7). His nine goals with Belleville are the most he’s scored for one team since scoring 10 in 66 games for Brampton in 2007-2008.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 1 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 3
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (tripping, roughing)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 14-15-29, -12, 60 PIM
    With Regina: 4 GP, 1-2-3, -4, 8 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Regina has lost its last five games and has fallen to 10th in the Eastern Conference. The Oil Kings, led by former Lightning prospect Torrie Jung’s 20 save, Third Star performance, pulled out of the Eastern Conference cellar into 11th with the win. Ashton’s old team, Lethbridge, sits in last.

    Norfolk rises to the occassion in the biggest game of the season thus far.

    WBS-0
    NOR-2

    Dustin Tokarski dropped a 26 save shutout on the Penguins in a division game the Admirals absolutely needed. It was Tokarski's second shutout of the season and he's lifted his record back above .500 at 9-8-0. More interesting, he's rebuilt his save percentage from the .894 sv% he had at the end of October, to the .908 sv% he had at the end of November, to now having a .917 sv% by virtue of a scintilating December where he has a .962 sv% and 1.00 GAA in three starts. He's passed battery-mate Riku Helenius who entered the month with a .917 sv% but has since dipped to a .904 sv% after a pair of tough starts in December.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Parrish, (7) (Bochenski, Jackson), 12:48

    Third Period
    NOR Bochenski, (15) (Wishart), 10:26

    Tokarski, Mark Parrish, and Brandon Bochenski were named the game's three stars.

    Norfolk entered the game one point back of the Penguins in fifth place in the East Division. A loss would have dropped the Admirals to 3 games under .500 and 3 games out of 4th place. Instead, they've leapfrogged Wilkes-Barre/Scranton into 4th place, 1 point back of 3rd place Binghamton and they've closed to 1 game under .500. The lead back (Hershey and Albany) may have pulled away in the division, but tonight's win has kept Norfolk square in the middle of the fight for a playoff spot.

    Ty Wishart had an assist in tonight's game, which puts him at 8 points in 29 games this season, which tops the 7 points he had in 61 games last year. Incremental progress.
