Game Night Results

  • 5 years 24 weeks ago

    I'm hard pressed to remember an offensive effort that pathetic.

    TB-0
    CHI-4

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 4 goals on 29 shots. The goal he allowed at the end of the second period was painfully soft and essentially ended the game. He also tried to allow another softie late in the third that he barely swept off the line. It was not a strong performance, although the Lightning weren't much of a threat to Chicago all game long, so it didn't really matter.

    First Period
    CHI 7:42, Kane 10 (Keith)

    Second Period
    CHI 10:42, Eager 2 (Hossa, Sopel)
    CHI 19:44, Hossa 4 (Sharp, Seabrook)

    Third Period
    CHI 6:01, Toews 9 (Byfuglien, Seabrook)

    18 shots on goal. How does an NHL team with this kind of offensive talent allow itself to be held to 18 shots on goal? Vincent Lecavalier (-3, 1 shot on goal) still is doing nothing on the forecheck around the opposition cage, which is where he showed he was an elite player. His failures are helping to drag down Martin St. Louis. Alex Tanguay has been lost all season. Steven Stamkos has forgotten about the necessity of shooting the puck (2 shots), and that's hurt Ryan Malone because he's the type of guy who hops on rebounds and excels in scrums around the cage.

    The power play is a joke right now. They don't surround loose pucks and win one on one battles. They don't make smart, short passes to loosen up the opposing PK. They labor trying to free up Kurtis Foster for his shot and have forgotten they have lethal options like Vincent Lecavalier around the circles and Steven Stamkos around the circles and in the slot.

    It's bad. This is a team that is fundamentally awful offensively right now. When Stephane Veilleux is the best player on the ice on a team with this roster, that also suggests a lack of effort, too.

    Zenon Konopka had 5 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and was 33% on draws in 7:45.

    Paul Szczechura had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 15:36.

    James Wright was -1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 12:55.

    Victor Hedman was -2 with 4 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 blocked shot in 19:05. His poor decision on the Blackhawks second goal was terrible, and that was a very deflating goal for the Lightning. That's a mistake that cannot happen.

    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, DNP
    Season totals: 33 GP, 17-14, 5 SO, 2.07 GAA, .923 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin got the night off in his return to Togliatti, who lost Koshechkin's services earlier this season when they couldn't afford to meet payroll. Koshechkin's backup Ilya Proskuryakov stopped 24 of 26 shots faced for the win.

    St. Petersburg 0 @ Dynamo Moscow 2
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG

    Season Totals: 28 GP, 4-8-12, +3, 12 PIM
    With Sudbury: 7 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 6 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    Sointu notched just his second point in seven games since moving to Sudbury. This was the first time in a month DeCoste has failed to register a point in back-to-back games.

    Ottawa 67’s 1 @ Barrie Colts 4
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 32 GP, 19-21-40, +20, 22 PIM

    Hutchings extended his point streak to 10 games. He’s scored a goal in eight of his past nine contests. His plus-20 rating is second on the Colts.

    Erie Otters 3 @ Sarnia Sting 2
    G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Win, 29 saves on 31 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 5-3-1-0, 2.83 GAA, .921 sv%
    With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

    Sarnia outshot Erie 12-3 in the third period while the Otters were clutching to their 3-2 lead. Janus shut the door, unofficially earning his first First Star of the season. If Janus had enough games to qualify, his save percentage would rank sixth in the league.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 1 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 5
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (hooking, slashing)
    Season Totals: 29 GP, 13-14-26, -10, 56 PIM
    With Regina: 2 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 4 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Ashton took a hooking penalty in the first minute of his first game back in Lethbridge. The last place Hurricanes easily took care of the Pats, outshooting them 40-16 (30-7 after two periods). This was Regina’s first game without Canadian national team stars Jordan Eberle and Colton Teubert, who are at the WJC camp. With the win, Lethbridge pulled into a second-last place tie with Edmonton in the Eastern Conference. Regina fell to last in the East Division, but are in eighth in the Eastern Conference.

    St. Lawrence Saints 0 @ No.19 Vermont Catamounts 3
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping), 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 6 PIM

    Vermont’s first game this season out of the Top-20 (No.21/receiving votes) was a good one. Marshall played left wing on the Catamounts’ fourth line.

    No.13 Ferris State Bulldogs 4 @ Western Michigan Broncos 3
    D Luke Witkowski , WMU: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 1-3-4, -8, 16 PIM

    Ferris State swept the weekend series with WMU, outscoring them 7-3 in total.

    The Admirals come roaring back to keep their season viable.

    MTB-4
    NOR-5

    Riku Helenius allowed 4 goals on 28 shots but still got the win.

    First Period
    MTB Collins, (1) (Maxwell), 2:16
    MTB Bolduc, (1) (Rosa, Walsky), 16:12

    Second Period
    NOR Bochenski, (13) (Parrish, Lundin), 7:37 (PP)
    NOR Syroczynski, (5) (Fritz, Lashoff), 16:42
    MTB Shirokov, (11) (Rosa), 18:29

    Third Period
    NOR Parrish, (6) (Bochenski, Wishart), 3:39
    NOR Karsums, (2) (Craig, Hall), 4:44
    NOR Bochenski, (14) (Lundin, Parrish), 11:32 (PP)
    MTB Murray, (8) (Ramsey), 13:56

    Brandon Bochenski, Mark Parrish, and Matt Syroczynski were the game's three stars. Norfolk ended up outshooting Manitoba 49-28 in the game. Urgency finally set in. The win moves Norfolk back to 13-15-1 on the season, one point out of fourth place in the North Division.

    Veteran Mark Parrish is finally starting to come on strong after a very timid first 20 or so games with the Admirals. Also, look, Matt Lashoff is off the side of the milk carton for his 4th point in 23 games this season.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Halifax Mooseheads 2
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 2-22-24, +7, 32 PIM

    Barberio set up Nova Scotia native Scott Brannan (undrafted) shorthanded with 87 seconds left in the game for the winner over Halifax.

    OHL

    Belleville Bulls 2 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 5
    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, E, 5 PIM (elbowing, game misconduct)
    Season Totals: 29 GP, 10-8-18, -1, 31 PIM
    With Bulls: 16 GP, 8-7-15, +1, 11 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    DeCoste made his first return to the Soo after being traded from the Greyhounds earlier this year. It wasn’t the return he was hoping for as he was thrown out midway through the second period for elbowing an unsuspecting Tomas Rachunek in the head. Rachunek left the ice with a cut on his head and an apparent shoulder injury. SSM scored on the ensuing power play. Like it did when he was traded from Brampton to the Soo last year, DeCoste’s game has taken off since being traded. Up until Friday night he was producing at a point-per-game clip for the Bulls. He was named the team's Most Improved Player by the Belleville paper this week.

    Barrie Colts vs. Sudbury Wolves - postponed
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 18-21-39, +18, 22 PIM
    LW Matais Sointu, SBY
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 4-7-11, +3, 8 PIM
    With Sudbury: 6 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 2 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    This game was postponed due to poor travel conditions.

    Erie Otters 3 @ Plymouth Whalers 6
    G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 4-3-1-0, 2.94 GAA, .919 sv%
    With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

    Janus started Thursday night and is working his way back from a lower body injury, so he got the night off in Michigan.

    Windsor Spitfires 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 2 (SO)
    C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 32 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    Panik scored for the second straight game but failed to convert his shootout attempt - but the Spits still won. Windsor hasn’t been defeated in regulation or overtime since a 6-5 loss to Sarnia on October 11 (21-0-0-3).

    Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 11-9-2-1, 3.25 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador, who has won four straight starts, got the night off.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 2 @ Medicine Hat Tigers 7
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 52 PIM
    With Regina: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Ashton made his debut for Regina wearing No.25 and starting the game on a line next to super-prospect Jordan Eberle (Oilers 1/2008) and Matt Strueby (undrafted). The line produced one goal in the game, an unassisted marker by Eberle. The Pats' Eberle and Colton Teubert will not play again for Regina in 2009 as they leave to attend Canada's WJC camp. Both are locks to make the club. Ashton will not wait long to face his former club as he and the remaining Pats will take on Lethbridge Saturday night.

    Keep your foot on the gas and you win.

    TB-1
    COL-2 (SO)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 35 shots but he also allowed 1 goal on 3 shootout attempts and that was all it took for him to get the penalty shot session loss. He deserved a lot better. He was absolutely brilliant in the third period.

    First Period
    TB 12:12, Downie 6 (Lecavalier, St. Louis)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    COL 12:11, Wolski 12 (Stastny, Wilson)

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    TB- NONE
    COL- Wolski

    The Lightning were actually leading in shots after two periods 17-14, primarily on the strength of a very good first 30 minutes. They started to let off the gas midway through the middle frame, and then suddenly the Avalanche hung a 20-5 shot disparity on them the rest of the way. It's unacceptable. The forecheck just evaporates way too easily for this team, especially when they're trying to protect a lead. Take a tip from Chris Dingman, the best way to protect a one goal lead is to get the puck behind their net and sit on it for 30 seconds. The Lightning are lucky to hold possession in the other team's zone for 3 seconds in scenarios like tonight. Someone's got to start paying the price to hold onto the puck.

    And for the love of God, someone please score a (Ooh La La!) shootout goal.

    Matt Smaby led the Lightning in hits with 4 in 15:30. Hello old friend. We missed you.

    Zenon Konopka had 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and was 63% on draws in 8:37.

    Paul Szczechura was -1 with 4 shots and 1 hit in 18:18.

    James Wright had 1 shot, 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and was 67% on draws in 15:32.

    Victor Hedman had 1 shot in 25:31.

    Uh oh.

    MTB-4
    NOR-1

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 30 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    MTB Rome, (5) (Desbiens, Murray), 14:17

    Second Period
    NOR Smolenak, (4) (Parrish, Bochenski), 12:12

    Third Period
    MTB Rome, (6) (Keane), 14:32 (PP)
    MTB Pettinger, (6) (Keane), 18:55 (EN)
    MTB Murray, (7) (Ramsey), 19:29 (EN)

    Norfolk was outshot 12-4 in the third period, which they entered into with a 1-1 tie. Manitoba showed more urgency and they got two points. That's bad news for Norfolk, who already entered the night having fallen to fifth in the division. The Ads are now 3 games under .500 and Wilkes-Barre and Binghamton, the two teams ahead of them in the East Division, both have games in hand. A win tomorrow night in the rematch against Manitoba may very well be a prerequisite for this Norfolk team.

    Ekaterinburg 5 @ Astana 2
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 31 GP, 4-3-7, -11, 10 PIM

    Ekaterinburg got 1 goal and 2 assists from Alexei Simakov in their 5-2 win over Astana. Former Lightning draft pick Ilya Solarev scored his second goal of the season in the match for Astana. Denis Kazionov played 10:58 in the match.

    Magnitogorsk 4 @ Yulaev 5 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Loss, 27/31, 3.70 GAA, .871 sv%
    Season totals: 33 GP, 17-14, 5 SO, 2.07 GAA, .923 sv%

    Yulaev squeaked past Magnitogorsk in the shootout in a matchup of the first and second place teams in the KHL Eastern Conference. Vasily Koshechkin took his 14th loss of the season in the match, allowing both Yulaev shooters to score in the penalty shot session. Former NHLer Oleg Tverdovsky scored a goal with less than ten minutes to play in the final period to force the game into overtime.

    Chelyabinsk 3 @ Omsk 2
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 22/25, 3.01 GAA, .880 sv%
    Season totals: 27 GP, 15-11, 3 SO, 1.99 GAA, .915 sv%

    Karri Ramo and Omsk fell to Chelyabinsk 3-2, helping Chelyabinsk cling to 8th place in the East.

    Dynamo Moscow 4 @ Nizhnekamsk 0
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 34 GP, 3-7-10, -4, 26 PIM

    I'm declaring the slump officially over. Johan Harju assisted on Linus Omark's 15th goal of the season today to help lift Dynamo to a 4-0 shutout victory of Nizhnekamsk. Harju played 14:33 in the match and was 67% on draws.

    Dynamo Minsk 1 @ Kazan 4
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 33 GP, 11-2-13, +1, 12 PIM

    The older of the Kazionov brothers has really got it cooking. Dmitry had a multi-point effort today to help propel Kazan to a 4-1 victory over Dynamo Minsk. The forward played 12:11 in the match. Kazionov has already eclipsed his goal total from a season ago (9) set in 55 games. Kazionov is also on a pace to post a modest improvement in points over his total from a year ago (20). Kazan sits in sixth in the standings in the KHL's Eastern Conference.
