    Green Bay Gamblers 4 @ Team USA 2

    G Adam Wilcox, GB: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 6-2-0, 2.59 GAA, .911 sv%, 1 SO

    Former all-star Ryan McKay was back in the Gamblers’ lineup so Wilcox was back in a ball cap on the bench.

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 2 Hits

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 14-12-26, +9, 20 PIM

    Namestnikov’s streaks of games with a goal (3), with at least a point (4), and first stars (2) all came to an end as Plymouth did the unthinkable and shut down the London Knights at home. Plymouth pulled within two points of London (33) for the league’s overall point lead. Sarnia has 32.

    Greenville exploded for four goals before the halfway point of the game, chasing the normally reliable John Muse from the Florida net. Lightning prospect Pat Nagle (pictured) was solid in relief, only giving up a power play goal with two minutes left in the game. Alex Hutchings did not play due to an undisclosed injury he suffered last Saturday vs. Wheeling. (Naples Daily News photo)

    TJ back to early season form.


    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.

    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.


    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.

    Lulea 3 @ Timra 2 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-3-10, +2, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju scored on the opening attempt of the shootout session to contribute to Lulea's 3-2 win over Timra. Ex-Brandon Wheat King Sami Sandell had 1 goal and 1 assist for Lulea in the victory. Lulea faces HV 71 on Saturday.

    WHL All-Stars 5 vs. Russia 2

    Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Series totals: 5 GP, 2-2-4, 2 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Series totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, 2 PIM

    Russia scored the game’s first goal and had it tied at two later in the game, but the WHL scored three times to win 5-2 in Regina, Saskatchewan. Neither Lightning prospect had a point in the game for Russia. The two teams play again Thursday night in Moose Jaw.

    The CHL leads the series 3-2.

    Erie Otters 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 3

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 20 GP, 0-8-8, -1, 14 PIM

    Owen Sound won their fourth game in a row Wednesday night, beating the Otters 3-1. Schemitsch, who went to the lockerroom hurt during the Majors game five days ago, missed the game with an “upper body injury.”

    Cherepovets 3 @ Mytischi 5
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 18/23, 5.01 GAA, .783 sv%
    Season totals: 17 GP, 8-7-0, 1 SO, 2.86 GAA, .912 sv%

    Ex-Maple Leafs pick Maxim Semenov had 1 goal and 4 points to lead Mytischi to a 5-3 win over Cherepovets. Ex-Lightning draft pick Alexei Glukhov was scoreless in the match. Cherepovets faces Dynamo Minsk next on Friday.
