    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 8 GP, 0-3-3, +5, 2 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-3-3, E, 0 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 14-11-0-2, 2.99 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    The good news is Florida snapped their six-game losing streak. The bad news – for Lightning prospect followers – is Shane Owen was brought in to push Nagle and, according to reports, strengthen the goaltending. Owen got the shutout on Friday night while Nagle watched. Nagle is 1-4-2 in 2012. Owen played a game for Florida last season and was playing with Utah. He was a teammate of Lightning prospect Mark Barberio in QMJHL Moncton a few years ago.

    It's a rare game where the Admirals were clearly outplayed.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 34 shots in the loss and also stopped a penalty shot.

    First Period
    ADK McGinn, (6) (Akeson, Roe), 12:27

    Second Period
    ADK Ford, (11) (Holmstrom, Hamel), 0:20
    NOR Ashton, (18) (Johnson, Conacher), 9:58
    ADK McGinn, (7) (Akeson, Roe), 17:42

    Third Period

    It's probably safe to say this is partly an All-Star Break hangover. Norfolk was outshot 34-28 by an Adirondack team that came into the night with a very ordinary .500 record. Unfortunately, the loss drops Norfolk into third in their division, 5 points back of the leading Penguins. They get Springfield tomorrow night.

    This is why you don't wait until February to try to make your move in the standings.

    TB-1 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the overtime loss.

    First Period

    Second Period
    WPG Wheeler (10), (Slater, Ladd), 19:44

    Third Period
    TB Hedman (3), (St. Louis, Stamkos), 10:34

    WPG Wellwood (10), (Wheeler, Byfuglien), 3:14

    Victor Hedman was the game's second star.

    The Lightning probably deserved the second point tonight, on balance, but this is why you can't take points in the first half of the season lightly. The margin of error right now for the Lightning is so razor thin, they can't afford to run up against a hot goaltender or some bad luck.

    Truth be told, though, I felt the Lightning lost the game on a very lifeless, pathetic looking power play late in the third period. They had all the momentum in the period and drew a power play that should have given them the dagger blow opportunity, and Winnipeg outshot them 2-0 on the chance. The Jets had all the juice from there on out, especially in overtime, and the rest is history.

    Steve Yzerman made a hell of a deal to get Brendan Mikkelson for Blair Jones.

    Don't you wish Victor Hedman had the confidence and experience to jump into the rush more?

    J.T. Wyman had 1 shot and 2 hits in 7:53.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 1 shot and 1 hit in 5:10.

    Rimouski Oceanic 8 @ Victoriaville Tigres 7 (OT)

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

    Victoriaville’s Stefan Fournier (undrafted) had four goals and two assists, but it wasn’t enough to get two points from Rimouski Wednesday night. Jean-Francois Plante (undrafted) scored his 16th goal of the year in overtime to give the Oceanic the win.

    Season totals: 21 GP, 14-12-26, +3, 33 PIMs

    Should I feel outraged about the bad refereeing?

    TB 4 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the win.

    First Period
    WSH Hendricks (2), (Laich), 16:55
    TB Purcell (13), (Downie, Stamkos), 18:50

    Second Period
    TB St. Louis (13), (Pyatt, Clark), 1:05
    TB Thompson (6), (Moore, Wyman), 10:59
    WSH Perrault (8), (unassisted), 13:07

    Third Period
    WSH Brouwer (15), (unassisted), 5:53

    TB Stamkos (33), (St. Louis, Garon), 2:45

    Steven Stamkos and Pavel Kubina were the game's first and third stars.

    Make no mistake about it, Washington's third goal was a completely blown call. The holding on Matt Gilroy that led to Brouwer's unassisted goal was a joke. I'd be more outraged were it not for the craft Russian leg sweep Vincent Lecavalier put on Roman Hamrlik to spring Marty for the Lightning's second goal. Still, for the refs to blow that call it plain view was pretty shocking.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 hit in 5:08.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and 3 shots and 1 hit in 13:00. Played very well coming off the shelf.

    Full slate today:

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 2 @ SaiPa 1 SO
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 34/35, 0.92 GAA, .971 sv%
    Season totals: 25 GP, 17-6-0, 6 SO, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

    Riku Helenius made 34 saves and was named the game's first star in JYP's 2-1 win over SaiPa. Helenius' rise has gradually gone, over the course of the season, from a cute story, to a bit of a phenomenon, to now something that bears serious consideration. No one expected him to keep posting shutouts in 40% of his starts, but he's now consistently winning games and only allowing 1-2 goals in the process. He leads the SM-liiga now in GAA and save percentage and he's still tied for the lead in shutouts. For an organization so starved for goaltending as the Lightning's, they can't afford to ignore #31 for JYP. JYP is now off until Tuesday, February 14, when they'll play TPS. They've now climbed into 4th on the SM-liiga table. The Sweden Hockey Games leg of the Euro Hockey Tour will be played February 9-12.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 2 @ Dynamo Minsk 4
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, ND, 14/15, 1.92 GAA, .933 sv%
    Season totals: 29 GP, 15-9-0, 5 SO, 2.42 GAA, .923 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin spelled starter Vadim Tarasov 8:42 into the second period and allowed 1 goal on 15 shots in Cherepovets' 4-2 loss to Minsk. Ex-Devils first rounder Nicklas Bergfors had a helper in the match for Cherepovets. Cherepovets faces Poprad on Thursday.

    CSKA 4 @ Spartak Moscow 1
    Nikita Kucherov, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 16 GP, 1-3-4, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 19 GP, 19-17-36, +12, 38 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov assisted on Nikita Gusev's game opening goal in CSKA's 4-1 rout of Spartak. Kucherov played 11:39 in the match. CSKA draws Chekhov on Thursday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 7 @ Kirov-Chepetsk 4
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 34 GP, 10-19-29, +15, 30 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 7 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov assisted on an Anton Burdasov goal in Chelyabinsk Jr.'s 3 goal win over Kirov-Chepetsk. Chelyabinsk Jr. is off until Friday when they play Kazan Jr.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    From 1-23
    Frolunda 1 @ Lulea 2
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 42 GP, 12-6-18, +4, 16 PIM

    In a game that slipped through the cracks from last Monday, Toni Koivisto's third period goal lifted Lulea to a 2-1 win over Frolunda.

    From 1-31
    HV 71 0 @ Lulea 1
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 43 GP, 13-6-19, +4, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju scored the shootout winner to lift Lulea to a 1-0 win over HV 71. Remember, shootout winners count as goals in the stat column in Sweden. Lulea draws Vaxjo on Thursday. Lulea has climbed to 2nd place in the Elitserien, just 1 point back of Skelleftea.

    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    The Remparts scored 17 goals this weekend, but only got one win. That’s the Q for you. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes had two goals and an assist for Victoriaville. He was named Second Star.

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

    With Oshawa: 8 GP, 0-3-3, E, 2 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Schemitsch (pictured) had another assist on Sunday, giving 14 for the year. He had 20 points in 45 games last year, but had 40 points as a rookie in his draft season. Schemitsch hasn’t scored a goal in his last 79 regular season games. He has one goal in his last 103 regular season games. He is due for a contract decision this spring.
