    Not a good night for the Bulls, who were tied with Mississauga at one after the first period. Panik’s scoreless streak stretched to five games. Belleville is tied for ninth in the conference and is just five points behind Brampton for eighth, but they have to make their run now. Mississauga has the second best point total in the conference at 71.

    In case you needed a reminder of what a special talent #4 is...


    Antero Niittymaki stopped all 33 shots he faced tonight for the shutout. It's been a heck of a bounce back these past couple of games from Niitty after being somewhat terrible in 2 of the 3 games prior to that.

    First Period
    TB 9:50, St. Louis 14 (Downie)

    Second Period
    TB 2:23, Lecavalier 14 (Tanguay, Downie)
    TB 5:54, Stamkos 28 (Foster, Lecavalier)(PP)

    Third Period

    Vincent Lecavalier, between the legs, 2-0 Lightning. Eat your heart out, Montreal. Have I professed my continuing admiration for Steve Downie and Matt Smaby lately? Downie had a pair of assists tonight and was second star of the game while Matt Smaby continues to single-handedly force opposing teams to respect the Lightning at Tampa Bay's blueline and in the neutral zone. Don't get me wrong, Mattias Ohlund will hit you. But, #32 will harm you. He only got credit for 1 hit tonight. As Bobby Taylor has said on the television broadcasts before, though, the scorekeepers seem to routinely short change Smaby on his hit totals at the Forum. Downie and Smaby: they're both gentlemen and scholars, I tell you.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, 1 hit, and he was 67% on draws in 10:54. Szczechura is now 5 games away from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.

    Jim Johnson is 4-0-0 as Head Coach.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Lashoff, (4) (Simek, Hale), 2:51 (PP)
    HFD Byers, (12) (Locke, Roche), 10:05 (PP)
    NOR Parrish, (11) (Fadden, Wishart), 14:12

    Second Period
    HFD Crowder, (10) (Ambuhl, Owens), 2:42
    HFD Roche, (1) (Locke), 6:49
    NOR Tyrell, (2) (Cruthers), 10:10
    NOR Hale, (1) (Smolenak, Lashoff), 19:09 (PP)

    Third Period
    HFD Locke, (19) (Williams, Heikkinen), 15:08 (PP)
    NOR Fadden, (2) (Fornataro, Jackson), 17:14

    Mark Parrish was named the game's first star. It's absolutely amazing. After being nowhere statistically for the first half of the season, Mitch Fadden and Dana Tyrell have stepped up and found the scoresheet regularly on this road trip. After going 38 games without a goal, Tyrell now has a goal in each of the past couple of games. And, after going scoreless for the first 15 games of his pro career, Fadden now has 1 goal and 5 points in the past 4 games.

    After a scoring change on the game winning goal, Ty Wishart now has 4 multi-point games in his last 6 contests. He's got 20 points now. Why not 30? You can also file Matt Lashoff having his first multi-point night of the season tonight in the category of good news. Much like Radek Smolenak, who started to get on track in the last game and had an assist tonight, the Admirals need Lashoff to start playing to his potential if they're going to push their way into the playoffs.

    All in all, despite allowing 4 goals, the Admirals can feel very good about tonight's win considering their captain, Ryan Craig, is away from the team temporarily while he and his wife are having a baby. With the win, Norfolk now creeps to just 2 games under .500. More to the point, the Admirals have jumped to with 1 point of Adirondack for the final playoff spot in the East Division, with Adirondack holding 2 games in hand. They're tied with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at 44 points with the Penguins also having 2 games in hand. They've also moved 2 points ahead of Binghamton, but the Senators hold 4 games in hand.

    Norfolk gets a day off before heading back to Springfield, which is in last place in the Atlantic Division, on Friday night. Here's the big one, though: circle it on your calendars. Norfolk has a colossal 4 point divisional tilt in Adirondack on Saturday night. Looking at the schedule, the formula for the Admirals to make the playoffs is pretty simple: they have 14 road games left and 20 at home. They're playing 2 games over .500 on the road by and games under .500 at home. If they can start protecting home ice better and win the lion's share of the 4 point divisional tilts left on their schedule, they will get in. Norfolk has 4 games left against Adirondack (2 home/ 2 away), 6 games left against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (4 home/ 2 away), and 3 games left against Binghamton (0 home/ 3 away).

    Season Totals: 30 GP, 5-10-15, 65 PIM

He was not on Central Scouting's mid-term rankings. His brother, Brett, was a fourth round pick of Washington in 2007 who's currently playing for the University of North Dakota.

    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 10-30-40, +28, 48 PIM

    Barberio has points in 11 of his last 12 games. Moncton completed the weekend road trip through Quebec 3-0, with all their wins coming in convincing fashion. Barberio hit 40 points for the third straight season, though he’s well on pace to smash his career high of 46 points set in 70 games two years ago.


    Sudbury Wolves 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: Did not play (injured).
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 5-9-14, E, 12 PIM

    Season Totals: 32 GP, 12-15-2-1, 3.47 GAA, .897 sv%, 2 SO

    A huge performance for Zador, and he did it for a team that can’t seem to close the floodgates when it comes to the opposition scoring. The win breaks a personal six-game losing streak for Zador. It’s his second career shutout, and first since a 37-save performance on October 9 against Erie.

    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    No.17 Vermont Catamounts 3 @ No.15 UMass Minutemen 0
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (interference), 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 1-3-4, -4, 14 PIM

    A nice rebound win for Vermont, who lost 3-1 to UMass in their previous game. Marshall earned a secondary assist on defenseman Drew MacKenzie’s (Sabres 7/2007) first goal of the year to open the game’s scoring.

    Jim Johnson is 3-0-0 as coach.


    Dustin Tokarski returned to the Admirals just in time to lay down a 24 save shutout for his club. That's solid.

    First Period

    Second Period

    Third Period
    NOR Tyrell, (1) (Craig, Hall), 12:44

    Dana Tyrell and Tokarski were the game's first and third stars. Congratulations to Tyrell on his first goal of the season and second as a professional. Dana had 1 goal and 6 points in 11 games as an amateur tryout at the end of the 2007-2008 season. The Admirals outshot Lowell 33-24 in the game.

    The Admirals now creep to 3 games under .500 for the season as their road trip rolls on. Oddly, the team is 12-11-2 on the road and 8-12-0 at home, even though playing at The Scope traditionally has been a huge advantage for Norfolk. Norfolk has 15 road games left on the schedule and 20 at home, so if they can start to defend home ice better, that may make the difference in They are 2 points behind Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for the final playoff spot in the division with the Penguins holding a game in hand. Norfolk has the Hartford Wolf Pack up next on Wednesday.
