    Three goals down entering a third period is pretty much a death sentence in pro hockey.

    NJ-4
    TB-2

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the loss, including a critical gaffe late in the game.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NJ Zubrus (5), (Carter), 1:09
    NJ Elias (8), (Clarkson, Larsson)(PP), 6:05
    NJ Clarkson (7), (Henrique, Kovalchuk)(PP), 17:44

    Third Period
    TB St. Louis (5), (Shannon, Kubina), 8:24
    TB Shannon (1), (Downie, Brewer), 9:54
    NJ Carter (2), (unassisted), 17:57

    Ryan Shannon was the game's third star.

    The game was essentially won/lost on special teams, and the back breaker was Clarkson's goal. You have to at least stay within 2 goals going into the third period to give yourself a chance at the pro level. Once you fall down by 3 or more, 99% of the time you're done for, no matter how valiant the comeback attempt.

    Sad to see the third jerseys take a blemish on their record.

    Brett Connolly had 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 12:38.

    Should've saved some goals for tonight.

    NOR-1
    STJ-3

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    STJ Holzapfel, (7) (Klingberg, Postma), 2:05 (PP)
    STJ Machacek, (3) , 18:02

    Second Period
    NOR Conacher, (9) , 0:27

    Third Period
    STJ Murray, (1) (Clark, Albert), 2:18

    Cory Conacher, the non-prospect prospect, was the game's third star.

    It's just so difficult to beat a team on back-to-back nights, and it sometimes seems to be harder when you dominate them on the first night. Tonight, Peter Mannino had the wall up for the baby Jets, and that was the difference.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    HPK 4 @ JYP 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 11 GP, 6-5-0, 4 SO, 1.56 GAA, .930 sv%

    JYP was bounced hard by HPK in the second half of a home-and-home 4-1. JYP will get quite a few days off to lick their wounds, as they don't play again until Friday against Jokerit.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    HV 71 2 @ Lulea 1 (OT)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 8-3-11, +2, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju's second period goal wasn't enough offense for Lulea, which fell 2-1 to HV 71. Ex-Oilers draft pick Mikko Luoma had the winning goal in overtime. Lulea gets Linkopings on Wednesday.

    With the Subway Super Series now over, look for Nikita Nesterov to possibly return to action for Chelyabinsk Jr. tomorrw against Mytischi Jr. CSKA Jr.'s next game is Tuesday against Khanty-Mansiysk Jr., and that game may be Nikita Kucherov's first back.

    TJ back to early season form.

    NOR-6
    STJ-2

    Jaroslav Janus made 26 saves on 28 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Ashton, (12) (Fornataro, Johnson), 5:27
    STJ Postma, (3) (Machacek, Klingberg), 16:44 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Smith, (7) (Conacher, Dimmen), 1:22
    NOR Smith, (8) (Conacher, Landry), 4:32
    NOR Angelidis, (3) (Wyman), 11:11

    Third Period
    STJ Klingberg, (9) (DeSantis), 2:58 (SH)
    NOR Johnson, (5) (Ashton, Conacher), 8:14
    NOR Johnson, (6) (Barberio, Vernace), 15:35 (PP)

    Tyler Johnson and Carter Ashton were the game's first and second stars.

    Remember Tyler Johnson (pictured)? He had 6 points in the first 4 games of the season before cooling off with 3 points in the subsequent 11. And then, boom, 3 point night. There's so much depth on the Admirals and it's truly under-appreciated. Trevor Smith has 20 points in the first 17 games this season, and he's barely figured in the three stars discussions in each game. Heck, he's not even the team's leading scorer, because Cory Conacher has 21 points, and he doesn't even have a contract with the Lightning, yet. There's 4 players on the Ads (Conacher, Smith, Ashton, and Mark Barberio) that are currently over a point-a-game. It's impressive.

    WHL All-Stars 5 vs. Russia 7

    Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 2-1-3, +5, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Series totals: 6 GP, 4-3-7, 2 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Series totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, 2 PIM

    Kucherov and Russia finished with a bang to tie the overall Superseries between CHL teams and Russia 3-3. The Russians were down 4-2 and 5-3 at different points in the game before they came roaring back. Kucherov's second goal came on a "beauty of a breakaway" as one reporter put it. Nikita Gusev, the undrafted pint-sized scoring star who is a teammate of Kucherov's for CSKA's junior team, was player of the match for Russia with a goal, two assists, and a plus-5 rating. Kucherov finishes the series against Canada's best junior competition at more than a point per game. While defense takes a back seat in these series, it is still encouraging that he can score with the best of his age group.

    QMJHL

    Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 5

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM (high sticking), 2 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 0-4-4, E, 15 PIM

    Milan has climbed his way back to an even rating as the Wildcats won their sixth in a row.

    Clinical, workmanlike victory.

    PIT-1
    TB-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 1 goal on 34 shots for the win. As badly unfocused as he was in Winnipeg, he was equally outstanding tonight. Very sharp. Moved very well. Probably should have had a shutout except for the sloppy, penalty-filled, choppy ending to the game.

    First Period
    TB Lecavalier (7), (unassisted), 8:38

    Second Period
    TB Connolly (4), (Moore, Bergeron)(PP), 4:08

    Third Period
    TB Downie (2), (Brewer, Stamkos)(PP), 2:04
    TB Lecavalier (8), (unassisted)(EN), 15:49
    PIT Kennedy (2), (Martin, Staal), 16:49

    Roloson, Victor Hedman, and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's three stars.

    34-18 still isn't a good shot disparity for the Lightning, and they definitely were outplayed in the first period, but this team gets the timely goal and save at home, and they've gotten the exact opposite on the road. It's a mystery as to why that is.

    Brett Connolly had another goal and was -1 with 1 shot in 6:08. He was dropped to the fourth line to start the game and played sparingly, but was obviously effective in a smattering of power play shifts.

    Blair Jones played 4:25. That's over $1,200 a minute for his night's work. I want Blair Jones' hourly rate, please. I'm sure the assistants run him through the gauntlet as a bubble guy when he's a scratch, and he's logged a lot of miles on buses with Springfield and Norfolk to get here, but still, it's nice work if you can get it.
