    Tri-City Storm 4 @ Fargo Force 3

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 35 saves on 38 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 17 GP, 7-10-1, 3.12 GAA, .913 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    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.


    Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Drummondville Voltigeurs 4

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 5-23-28, -9, 47 PIM

    The Volts outshot Gatineau 36-21, including 17-8 in the final period.


    Kingston Frontenacs 3 @ Oshawa Generals 4 (SO)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 0-14-14, +4, 22 PIM
    With Oshawa: 12 GP, 0-3-3, +2, 4 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Rangers pick Christian Thomas, son of Lightning player development consultant Steve Thomas, had two goals for Oshawa and was named first star. No word so far on Schemitsch being a healthy or injury scratch.

    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
    Season Totals: 13 GP, 0-4-4, +3, 2 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 2 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 14-12-0-3, 2.98 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    Playing his second game in three months, Alex Hutchings had two assists and fellow Lightning prospect Charles Landry (pictured) had one assist to help the Everblades to a 5-3 road win over South Carolina. 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.

    Closing in on being able to declare a successful road trip.


    Mathieu Garon was dazzling, stopping 26 of 27 for the victory, including several key stops in the final 10 minutes of the contest to preserve the victory and the 2 points.

    First Period

    Second Period
    TB Downie (9), (Hedman, Stamkos), 7:31
    TB Stamkos (37), (Purcell), 13:16

    Third Period
    BUF Pominville (20), (Vanek, Weber), 7:07

    Steven Stamkos and Garon were the game's first and second stars. Through two periods, I thought Stamkos was worthy of sweeping all three stars the way he played. His line's been the best the past two games, after Marty and Vinny upped the ante in the couple of games before that.

    They certainly did it the hard way by holding on by a fingernail at the end, but the Lightning are about 1 point away from having a successful road trip with 1 game left to go, and at least giving themselves a chance heading into the second half of February. They're 8 points back of Toronto, who got pounded tonight by Montreal, for 8th in the conference and 9 points back of the Panthers in the division. The Lightning have 4 games in hand on Ottawa, 2 on Toronto, and 3 on Winnipeg, and they've got a lot of head-to-head games against those 3 left on the schedule. The Lightning don't have any games in hand on Washington, but they do have enough head-to-head matchups left to make it interesting on the Caps. Florida has to help out the Lightning by imploding to give Tampa Bay hope of catching them. The Panthers did a lot to stabilize themselves by beating the Caps and then by beating New Jersey today, so that situation looks less rosy than it did a week ago.

    Brett Connolly played 7:26 in the game. Congratulations to Brett for graduating from prospect status on Bolt Prospects, as tonight was his 41st NHL game of the season.

    J.T. Wyman had 2 penalty minutes in 8:47.

    Tri-City Storm 1 @ Fargo Force 3

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 33 saves on 35 shots, *Third Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 16 GP, 6-10-0, 3.13 GAA, .912 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox nearly stole this game for underdog Tri-City by stopping 33 of 35 shots. He was given the third star award on the road, which is rare in a loss. Fargo scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal late in the first period. They added an empty net marker late.


    Drummondville Voltigeurs 2 @ Victoriaville Tigres 3

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits

    With Victoriaville: 15 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 12 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Yanni Gourde (undrafted) scored his 30th goal of the season late in the third period to break a 2-2 tie and lift Victoriaville to a home win. The Tigres are currently the league’s fourth seed, but have the third most points due to division leaders being seeded 1-3.


    Plymouth Whalers 6 @ London Knights 8

    Oshawa Generals 2 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

    Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5 @ Gatineau Olympiques 6

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM (roughing, hooking), 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 41 GP, 5-23-28, -9, 47 PIM

    Janosik returned after missing Saturday’s game with an injury to contribute in Gatineau’s win on Thursday over the visitor’s from Sydney. William Carrier (2013) had a hat trick for Cape Breton.


    London Knights 5 @ Windsor Spitfires 0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 18-42-60, +15, 38 PIM

    Namestnikov’s two assists game him five points in his last two games. He set up linemate and former Lightning camper Seth Griffith (pictured) on two of Griffith’s three goals in the game. The hat trick gave Griffith 39 goals for the year and moved him into the OHL lead in that category. He is eligible to re-enter the draft this year and will likely be taken early.

    Namestnikov and Griffith were the subject of a feature in the London Free Press this week. To read the story, click here.

    Florida Everblades 3 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 4 (SO)

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: 1-0-1, +2, 6 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 8-5-13, +5, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, -1, 0 SOG, 0 PIM

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: SOL, 25 saves on 28 shots
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 14-12-0-3, 2.98 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    Welcome back, Alex Hutchings (pictured). The Lightning’s 2009 fourth round pick has been out since mid-November with an upper-body injury, but made his return Thursday night for the ‘Blades. His goal late in the second period restored Florida’s lead to 3-2 (they had led 2-0), but they gave up a late goal and lost in the shootout. Gwinnett scored on three of their five shootout attempts on Pat Nagle, who was making his first start in three games. Hutchings shot first for Florida but didn’t score. The Everblades are 1-6-1-2 in their last 10 games.

    Deserved better.

    NYR-4 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 4 goals on 31 shots for the overtime loss.

    First Period
    TB Stamkos (36), (Connolly, Wyman), 18:56

    Second Period
    NYR Callahan (18), (Del Zotto, Stepan)(PP), 4:33
    NYR Stepan (11), (Girardi, Gaborik), 5:27
    TB Lecavalier (21), (Purcell, Gilroy), 5:48
    TB Gervais (4), (Stamkos, St. Louis)(PP), 12:26

    Third Period
    NYR Boyle (5), (Hagelin, Stralman), 10:13

    NYR Richards (17), (Anisimov, Del Zotto), 2:37

    The shot totals don't reflect it, but I thought that, on the balance, the Lightning outplayed the Rangers. They had excellent puck movement and puck possession, even on the much maligned power play, and they had a lot of good chances. Unfortunately, the Rangers got kind of a lucky goal to tie the game at 3, and once you get to the 4-on-4 in OT, the smallest mistakes can end up in the back of your net with that much open ice. It speaks well that the Lightning could have such a competitive showing against one of the best teams in the East, but moral victories count for nothing at this time of year.

    Brett Connolly had an assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 3:52. His next game will mark his graduation from prospect status on Bolt Prospects, at which point we'll finally be able to move on our Midterm Rankings update.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and was +1 in 6:01.
