    Rock bottom?

    TB-2
    WPG-5

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss before giving way to Mathieu Garon, who allowed 1 on 17 shots. Roloson got sidetracked with doing a little acting trying to embellish contact around his crease, which he is wont to do, and lost focus, in my opinion. At the point this team is at, extracurriculars like that can't be put before fundamentals. Can't be.

    First Period
    WPG Kane (6), (Byfuglien, Burmistrov), 4:51
    WPG Byfuglien (3), (Kane), 13:02

    Second Period
    WPG Flood (3), (Stapleton, Little)(PP), 7:49
    TB St. Louis (4), (Stamkos, Lecavalier), 10:47
    WPG Ladd (5), (Oduya, Stapleton), 12:14

    Third Period
    WPG Stapleton (2), (Glass), 10:04
    TB Stamkos (11), (Gilroy), 10:26

    Steven Stamkos was second star. Small solace.

    That's a team that the Lightning haven't lost to in 2 years. 12 straight games. And they got rolled. Now you're hearing accusations that there are passengers on the team, people are questioning the goaltender, and Boucher just can't seem to get any of his mind tricks to work. At some point, when coaching fails, the GM has to make a move on the roster, and if there are passengers, there need to be consequences. No one is entitled to dress and play in the NHL or pull an NHL game check. These last 2 games have been utterly embarrassing after the triumph of the Flyers win.

    Brett Connolly was -2 with 2 shots in 14:43.

    Johan Harju, Sweden, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG

    Simultaneously frustrating and embarrassing.

    TB-0
    STL-3

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    STL Russell (3), (Grachev, Polak), 18:51

    Second Period
    STL Shattenkirk (2), (Steen, Langenbrunner), 19:54

    Third Period
    STL Oshie (5), (Backes)(SH), 6:26

    Yuck. The Lightning only managed 18 shots on goal because they didn't have the puck all game long. There was no forecheck and no flow. The passing was off. They had no jump. That was really hard to watch. They just got whipped tonight. That was textbook.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 3 shots in 12:50.

    Blair Jones was -1 with 2 hits in 6:46. We've always been big boosters of Blair on this site, but at some point he needs to be a little more than just a plumber. He's got something to give offensively, but it hasn't shown in the past few games. At all.

    Norfolk re-finds its offense.

    NOR-5
    WBS-3

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    WBS Williams, (3) (McDonald, Lerg), 1:13
    NOR Gudas, (3) (Tyrell, Wyman), 15:01 (SH)

    Second Period
    WBS Street, (2) (Bortuzzo, Sneep), 0:56 (PP)
    WBS Dimitrakos, (4) (Gibbons), 1:52

    Third Period
    NOR Conacher, (7) (Fornataro, Barberio), 1:56 (PP)
    NOR Barberio, (3) (Dimmen, Smith), 8:26 (PP)
    NOR Tyrell, (4) (Barberio, Angelidis), 11:23
    NOR Conacher, (8) (Dimmen), 19:58 (EN/PP)

    Mark Barberio (pictured) and Dana Tyrell were the game's first and second stars.

    It took 40 minutes, but the Admirals re-found their offense and their power play, based partly on Barberio's 3-point period. His effort moved him back into the top slot amongst all AHL defensemen in scoring. What's more exceptional, to me, is that he's at 15 points in 14 games. A point-a-game pace is so difficult to maintain at the AHL level, and especially by a defenseman. He had 31 points all of last season, in 68 games. He's pretty much halfway to that mark already.

    Tyrell snapped a 5 game scoreless streak with his 3rd multi-point game of the season.
