    Semifinals
    Sweden 2 @ Czech Republic 3 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Sweden, 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
    Tournament totals: 8 GP, 4-1-5, E, 4 PIM

    Victor Hedman, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Tournament totals: 8 GP, 1-1-2, +4, 4 PIM

    Karel Rachunek scored a goal with 8 second left in regulation to force overtime and Jan Marek scored the winning goal in the shootout to propel the Czech Republic to the World Championships finals over Sweden. Lightning prospect forward Johan Harju had Sweden's opening goal, a power play marker, and led Sweden with 8 shots on goal in 20:02 of ice time, the second highest ice time total of any Swedish forward. Unfortunately, Harju was on the ice for Rachunek's tying goal, which is the lone blemish in an otherwise outstanding game for the big power forward. Harju's goal was his 4th of the World Championships, which actually ties his goal scoring total of the entire regular season for Dynamo Moscow in the KHL. For Harju, who before this tournament was last seen leaving the ice injured in the second-to-last game of a disappointing first round playoff exit for Dynamo, this World Championships has reasserted the big forward's pedigree as a poor-man's Johan Franzen. Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman played 20:25 in the match and was on the ice for a Czech goal by Tomas Mojzis. Sweden will play home country Germany in the bronze medal game tomorrow.

    Russia 2 @ Germany 1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, Win, 26/27, 1.00 GAA, .963 sv%
    Tournament totals: 3 GP, 3-0-0, 0 SO, 1.00 GAA, .967 sv%

    Russian coach Slava Bykov went with Lightning prospect goaltender Vasily Koshechkin in their semifinal match against home country Germany, and the 6'6" netminder did not disappoint as he remained unbeaten and untied in the tournament making 26 saves on 27 shots faced for the win. Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk scored the winning goal for the Russians with just 1:50 left in regulation to punch their ticket for the gold medal game against the Czech Republic. It will be interesting to see if the Lightning make any moves to sign Koshechkin at the end of the tournament, which will come to a close tomorrow. Ex-GM Brian Lawton reportedly had serious interest in bringing in the 2002 8th round pick next season.

    Windsor Spitfires 4 vs. Moncton Wildcats 3 (OT)
    Memorial Cup Round Robin Play
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (holding)
    Tournament Totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 21 GP, 5-17-22, +10, 12 PIM
    Season Totals: 65 GP, 17-43-60, +39, 72 PIM

    Despite already clinching a spot in the tournament’s championship game, Windsor clawed their way back from a 3-2 third period deficit to force overtime and ultimately defeat the QMJHL champion Wildcats 4-3. With the loss, Moncton fell to 0-3. Their tournament and season are now complete. Barberio did not register a point in the round robin portion of the event, and the last picture of the Wildcats’ season will be a dejected Barberio standing in front of goaltender Shane Owen as Windsor celebrates in the background. Although the ultimate ending is now what Barberio envisioned, his team did win their league championship, he had a career year statistically, was a finalist for defenseman of the year, and led all blueliners in playoff points. He should have an NHL contract in his immediate future and projects to be playing defense for AHL Norfolk next season. Barberio has the offensive mindset and talent to be a successful pro. He’ll need a couple years honing his own-zone skills before flirting with a possible spot in the NHL.

    Draft Watch
    Moncton defenseman Brandon Gormley, a possibility for the Lightning at No.6 in the summer’s draft, had a goal and an assist in the game and played worthy of a prospect expected to go in the upper portion of the top-10 in this summer’s draft. Gormley Tournament Totals: 3 GP, 1-2-3, 0 PIM. Meanwhile, Windsor's Cam Fowler, a defenseman expected to be taken just before the Lightning pick, scored his first of the tournament in the Moncton game. He's 1-3-4 after three games.
