    Kingston Frontenacs 2 @ Barrie Colts 5
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 28-23-51, +29, 38 PIM

    Barrie has won five in a row and eight of their past 10. This game featured a rare goalie fight at the end of the second period. The Barrie Examiner has the story: "The bizarre brouhahas started when Kingston's Ethan Werek scored to cut Barrie's lead to 2-1 with a few seconds to go in the second period.

    "Werek apparently got a little too close to [Barrie goaltender Mavric] Parks – named after the Top Gun character played by Tom Cruise – which only fuelled an already frustrated Parks, who went after his former teammate and landed a quick jab on the Kingston forward.

    "A scramble ensued after the Parks-Werek dust-up, and that's when goalie Tyler Beskorowany -- and his six-foot-five, 204-pound frame -- saw an opportunity.

    "'I had to,' said Beskorowany, who skated 185 feet down ice to find a willing six-foot, 183-pound dance partner. "Stuff happens. It's too bad the refs got in the way. I was having fun.'"

    This is why we love junior hockey. And there is no truth to the rumor that Mavric closed his eyes, clenched his necklace, and said “Talk to me Goose” before the fight.

    The Lightning snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

    TB-3 (OT)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the win.

    First Period

    Second Period
    TOR 7:05, White 9 (Kessel, Gunnarsson)(PP)
    TB 11:46, Stamkos 26 (Lecavalier, Foster)

    Third Period
    TOR 9:08, Stajan 15 (Hagman, Kulemin)
    TB 16:11, Malone 21 (Lecavalier, Stamkos)(PP)

    TB 4:50, St. Louis 13 (Stamkos, Lecavalier)(PP)

    If the power play stays hot, that's one thing that will give the Lightning a big edge down the stretch of this season. It saved the game tonight, and that was as close to a must-win as it could be.

    Vincent Lecavalier has climbed up to a point a game pace for the season. Steven Stamkos goes over a point a game pace. Martin St. Louis remains well over a point a game pace for the season. And, the ironic thing is that Rick Tocchet might be right: Steve Downie might be playing better hockey than all of them.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 10:05.

    Nothing's quite as humiliating as crapping the bed on national TV.


    Antero Niittymaki allowed 5 goals on 20 shots for the loss before giving way to Dustin Tokarski who allowed 3 goals on 11 shots the rest of the way.

    What was the difference between tonight and last night? The Lightning overreacted to adversity. The Rangers got the game to 3-1 at the end of the first period, and rather than stay within their system the Lightning loosened up and played out of control. That's foolish. There's no such thing as a two point goal. You have to work and stay within your system and dismantle a two goal lead one goal at a time. If you don't, chances are your gambles will find you behind three goals, at which point the blood is in the water and it's a lot harder to get back within your system.

    Dartmouth Big Green 1 @ Harvard Crimson 4
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 5-7-12, -1, 16 PIM

    Killorn, who started the game on the second line, is third on the Crimson in scoring behind Michael Biega (undrafted) and Louis Leblanc (Canadiens 1/09).

    Season Totals: 19 GP, 1-1-2, -4, 10 PIM

    Vermont avenged a Friday night home-ice loss to the Huskies in a big way. Despite Vermont putting up nine goals, Marshall somehow finished on the minus side of zero – the only Catamount to do so in the game.

    That was outstanding. The Lightning played hard and they played under control.


    Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the win.

    First Period
    TB 11:07, Malone 20 (Foster, Veilleux)

    Second Period
    CAR 16:28, Cullen 9 (Whitney, Staal)
    TB 18:55, Lecavalier 12 (Meszaros, Halpern)(PP)

    Third Period
    CAR 4:07, LaRose 2 (Gleason)
    TB 9:11, Downie 11 (St. Louis, Smaby)

    For one of the rare times in the past two seasons, the Lightning did not panic whenever the opposing team got a goal to even things up. They stayed under control, and they went right back to work to retake the lead. That's exactly the way they need to play down the stretch to piece together enough points to make the postseason.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 13:41.

    The younger Kazionov brother didn't have a 3 point game, but he did play a team high 19:12 for Ekaterinburg. Johan Harju continued his second half trend of being a setup man, assisting on the game's opening goal while playing 13:05 and going 57% on draws.
