    Flat Lightning play down to competition.

    TB-1
    NYI-2 (OT)

    Dan Ellis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the overtime loss. He deserved better. He made more than enough saves for a team with this much firepower to win against a bottomfeeder like the Islanders. Shame on the skaters, tonight.

    First Period
    11:28 TB Malone (10), Clark (8), Purcell (18)(PP)

    Second Period
    19:43 NYI Parenteau (6), Tavares (9), MacDonald (3)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    03:23 NYI Tavares (9), Wisniewski (16), MacDonald (4)

    Ellis was the game's third star.

    I guess the Lightning didn't want to be tied for the division lead with 2 games in hand on the Capitals and Thrashers. I guess they didn't want all that "success" baggage following them around. So they came out flat for the first ten minutes of the game, potted a power play goal to take the lead, put in another ten minutes of effort to try to get it to 2-0, and then took their foot off the gas the rest of the way. Look, I get that it's hard to get motivated when you're playing a bunch of glorified AHLers inside a building which is quieter than a tomb because no one is there, but for the love of God, that's a game you have to win if you want to get where you want to go as a team.

    And, I would not mind Dwayne Roloson on my team.

    Dana Tyrell had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:26.

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-0-0, 2 PIM (tripping)

    Canada had a 2-0 lead before Sweden scored, then completed the win with two third period goals Tuesday to move to 2-0 in pre-competition play. Neither Lightning prospect earned a point. Canada plays Thursday night vs. Finland before they open tournament play December 26.

    RW Carter Ashton, CAN: 1-1-2, 0 PIM
    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM

    Canada came out firing with three first period goals and then scored four in the second period on their way to putting up a snowman in a pre-competition match against Nino Niedereiter and Switzerland. Ashton scored Canada’s final goal in the game. Connolly assisted on a Louis Leblanc goal in the second period. Canada will play Sweden on Tuesday and Finland on Thursday before opening tournament play the day after Christmas. (Pictured: No.28 Brett Connolly celebrates with his teammates after a Canada goal.

    A feel-good romp in Tampa Bay.

    CAR-1
    TB-5

    Dan Ellis allowed just 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory in a surprise start he was not scheduled for. He made a huge save early in the Second Period that allowed the Lightning to maintain momentum and go on to crush Carolina. That's three straight games where the Lightning's goaltenders have only allowed 1 goal. Beautiful.

    First Period
    05:48 TB Moore (6), Purcell (16), Tyrell (4)
    15:52 CAR Samsonov (6), Skinner (16), Cole (8)(PP)
    19:59 TB St Louis (13), Malone (17), Moore (7)

    Second Period
    14:51 TB Clark (7), St Louis (29), Hedman (11)
    16:26 TB Stamkos (26), St Louis (30), Purcell (17)(PP)
    18:58 TB Bergenheim (7), Clark (7), Lecavalier (8)(PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Martin St. Louis, Ellis, and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's three stars.

    This was a solid win in a fairly important game. The Canes came into the night six points back of the Lightning, and Carolina happened to be the 9th place team in the conference. So, it was critical for the Lightning to hold serve at home, especially with Cam Ward out with a rash(?) and a young goaltender who was in the AHL last season between the pipes. Now they've got an 8 point spread on 9th place and are 1 point back in the Division with 2 games in hand on the Thrashers. It's a bigger win than it might have appeared on the surface.

    Dana Tyrell had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots in 15:07.

    Tournament totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 0 SO, 2.50 GAA, .900 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin hasn't lost a Euro Tour game in his last two tournaments. He stopped 21 shots today in Russia's 6-2 victory over Finland. Ex-NHLer Alexei Morozov had 1 goal and 1 assist in the match for the Russians.

    Elsewhere, Ex-Lightning draft pick Ivan Rachunek had a goal in the Czech Republic's 4-1 win over Sweden. Former Lightning camper Niklas Persson had a helper in the match for the Swedes.
