    Season totals: 26 GP, 18-6-0, 6 SO, 1.49 GAA, .939 sv%

    On this Valentine's Day, I think we all can find something to love in the continued resurgence of goaltender Riku Helenius, who posted 16 saves en route to JYP's 4-1 win over TPS. Ducks draft pick Sami Vatanen scored 2 goals in the match for JYP. They face Ilves next on Friday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 2 @ CSKA Jr. 4
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr. 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 20 GP, 20-17-37, +12, 40 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 18 GP, 1-3-4, -1, 4 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-0-0, -1, 20 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 36 GP, 10-20-30, +12, 52 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 7 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov had a power play goal and a minor penalty in CSKA Jr.'s 4-2 win over Chelyabinsk Jr. Fellow Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov was -1 and took an unspecified game misconduct at 16:35 of the match. We'll see now if Kucherov returns to CSKA's KHL team and whether Nesterov faces disciplinary action after today's result. CSKA Jr. faces Omsk Jr. next on Thursday while Chelyabinsk Jr. draws KHK MVD Jr. on Thursday, as well.

    Today's head-to-head matchup of Lightning prospects comes on the heels of Saturday's MHL All-Star Game where the West defeated the East 4-2. Nikita Nesterov was -2 with a minor for interference for the losing East side. Nikita Kucherov did not suit up for the match, but his teammate Nikita Gusev had a pair of helpers for the victorious Team West.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 2 @ Brynas 3 (OT)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    Ex-Predators draft pick Daniel Widing scored 1:37 into overtime to lift Brynas to a 3-2 win over Lulea. Lulea draws MODO on Thursday.

    Looking for their second win a row in South Carolina, Florida skated out to a 3-0 lead but gave up three third period goals and lost 4-3. They were outshot 50-27 in the game, including 20-8 in the third period. Lightning prospect Pat Nagle sat for the second straight game. Congratulations to Charles Landry (pictured), who scored his first professional goal. The ‘Blades fell eight points behind South Carolina for third in the four-team South Division. They are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, one point ahead of Cincinnati, who has a whopping five games in hand on the Everblades. Florida has 22 games left.

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season Totals: 50 GP, 18-44-62, +17, 42 PIM

    Namestnikov’s streak of multi-point games ended at three. He had seven points in those three games. This game on Sunday between the two Midwest Division powers didn’t disappoint as it took a shootout to decide the winner. London got a goal from Jared Knight (Bruins) in the shootout to take the extra point. The Knights extended their lead over the Rangers to nine points for the division lead. Kitchener is one point behind Plymouth for the second most points in the league. London is 8-2 in their last 10 games.

    Third Period

    I don't know what else you could ask for. The Lightning were spotted a 2 goal lead and let it slip away in in less than 11 minutes en route to getting doubled up. It's sad.

    J.T. Wyman was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 6:17.

    3 games. 3 nights. 3 wins.


    Jaroslav Janus was fantastic, stopping 33 of 34 en route to the victory. He held the door closed in a first period where Norfolk was outshot 17-8 and really gave his club the chance to win tonight. That's what you need from your goalie on the 3rd game in 3 nights.

    First Period
    NOR Oberg, (4) (Ashton, Picard), 19:01

    Second Period
    NOR Conacher, (28) (Smith), 18:07

    Third Period
    CHA Sanguinetti, (6) (Boychuk, Muse), 18:17 (PP)
    NOR Labrie, (10) (Cote), 18:57 (EN)

    Norfolk's win coupled with Hershey's win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today tightens up the East Division race to a log jam of 3 teams within 2 points of first place with Hershey 1 point back of the Pens and the Ads 2 points behind the Pens. Norfolk can forge a tie for the division lead on Wednesday night when they travel to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Big game.

    A night after nearly stealing a win against Fargo and being named third star, Wilcox (pictured) stood on his head for most of the Saturday game and came away with a win and first star honors. The future Minnesota Golden Gopher reportedly put on a show for the Storm. TC is now two points behind Des Moines for the final playoff spot in the West, though the Bucs have two games in hand. The Storm have crawled out of the cellar to make a run at the playoffs.

    Florida Everblades 5 @ South Carolina Stingrays 3

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: 0-2-2, E, 1 SOG, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 8-7-15, +5, 12 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-1-1, +1, 0 SOG, 0 PIM

Dating back to mid-November before his injury, Hutchings has nine points in his last six games. Landry’s assist was his first point for Florida since before Christmas – a span of seven games (he spent some time with AHL Norfolk). Pat Nagle got the night off after taking a loss in Gwinnett the night before. Former Clarkson star Matt Beca had a hat trick for Florida. The 'Blades pulled within six points of South Carolina for third in the South Division. Florida has two games in hand on the Stingrays.

    Laying the smacketh down.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 25 shots but got a wee bit more goal support than last night to carry him to his 21st win of the year. That matches Tic's win total from all of last season and he now will zero in on his career mark of 27 wins set in his rookie campaign as his next milestone to beat.

    First Period
    NOR Panik, (11) (Palat, Johnson), 2:48
    NOR Kostka, (7) (Barberio, Palat), 4:36 (PP)
    NOR Conacher, (26) (Barberio, Panik), 5:07 (PP)
    NOR Conacher, (27) (Smith, Johnson), 8:20 (PP)

    Second Period
    ADK Brown, (6) (Klotz, Kessel), 4:23

    Third Period
    NOR Angelidis, (11) (Picard, Cote), 3:31
    ADK Kalinski, (9) (Manning, Akeson), 4:02
    NOR Smith, (19) (Labrie, Ashton), 13:23
    ADK Manning, (3) (Kessel, Holmstrom), 14:38 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (16) (Fornataro, Devos), 17:36

    Cory Conacher, Mark Barberio, and Tyler Johnson were the game's three stars.

    Phantoms d-man Cullen Eddy messed with the bull and got the horns, earning a game misconduct for elbowing rookie phenom Conacher. The Ads proceeded to score 3 power play goals on the subsequent 5 minute major, including 2 by Conacher himself.

    Conacher did not manage a hat trick, but, by virtue of an assist added on Conacher's first goal, Richard Panik posted a first period Gordie Howe hat trick for the opening goal, a power play assist, and then a fight with ex-Admiral Dan Jancevski. When Panik attacks, Adirondack trembles.

    Barberio crossed the 40 point threshold with his 2 power play helpers tonight. He's now at 41 points in 48 games, pushing him 2 points ahead of Brian Connelly of Abbotsford for the lead amongst d-men. For his part, Mike Kostka has quietly pushed up into a tie for 11th amongst d-men in scoring with 27 points in 45 games.

    Norfolk picks up 1 point on Hershey, which fell in a shootout tonight, and keeps pace with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. So, the Ads are 1 point back of the Bears and 4 points back of the Pens in the division. Both the Bears and Pens hold a game in hand on Norfolk. Norfolk heads to Charlotte tomorrow to face the Midwest Division (don't ask) leading Checkers.
