    Defense/goaltending snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.


    Mathieu Garon got lifted after allowing 5 goals on 17 shots for the loss. Dwayne Roloson stopped all 10 he faced the rest of the way. So, Garon's hot streak may be over, and hopefully Roli is refreshed from a few nights off.

    First Period
    NSH Kostitsyn (3), (Smith, Fisher), 6:25
    NSH Fisher (1), (Kostitsyn, Smith), 14:05
    TB Stamkos (5), (Purcell, Malone), 16:36
    TB Purcell (3), (Connolly, Bergeron)(PP), 19:33

    Second Period
    NSH Hornqvist (1), (Halischuk, Geoffrion), 7:43
    NSH Spaling (1), (Hillen, Blum), 11:20
    NSH Fisher (2), (Spaling), 12:10

    Third Period
    TB Stamkos (6), (Bergeron, St. Louis), 17:03

    Defensive zone coverage and turnovers continue to be an Achilles Heel. Offense continues to not be a problem, though, even with a fizzling power play. Heaven help the NHL if Boucher can get those items smoothed out. Lecavalier, Stamkos, and St. Louis all seem to be on their games, lately.

    Brett Connolly had a helper and was -2 with 1 hit in 13:42.

    Blair Jones was -2 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 6:24. That's the kind of ugly stat line that gets Mattias Ritola back in the lineup.

    The Lightning will have no prospects in the WHL this year, and that's just fine with Brett Connolly.

    Late last night, after Connolly's ninth game in the NHL, the St. Pete Times reported Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman told Connolly he was staying in the NHL this season.

    That loud obscenity you heard from the northwest around that time was the head office of the WHL's Prince George Cougars, who were counting on their captain and homegrown star to return to the club this season.

    As soon as Connolly plays his 10th game his NHL contract kicks in. Nine games is the cut-off for junior age players who aren't yet old enough to play in the American Hockey League.

    London Knights 4 @ Kitchener Rangers 5 (SO)

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 2-0-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 10-7-17, +8, 14 PIM

    Namestnikov scored twice in 31 seconds in the third period – the first of which was highlight reel material – to bring the Knights back from a 4-2 deficit to force overtime. After OT finished without a winner, Namestnikov was London’s last shooter and needed to convert to extend the shootout one more round, but did not score. He has four goals and five points in his last two games and seven points in his last four. He is on pace for 48 goals. Namestnikov scored 30 last season.

    Lightning respond well to adversity to move above .500.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 39 shots for the victory. He kept the Lightning in the game in the first period. It could've been 4-0 after the first 10-15 minutes easily, and he held off the wolves at 3-2 long enough for Ryan Malone to get the key insurance goal.

    First Period
    BUF Vanek (7), (Pominville, Adam), 1:56
    BUF Boyes (1), (McCormick, Ellis), 2:31
    TB Lecavalier (4), (St. Louis), 13:03
    TB Thompson (2), (Pyatt, Moore), 19:00

    Second Period
    TB Stamkos (4), (Gilroy, Bergeron), 4:42

    Third Period
    TB Malone (3), (Clark), 18:37
    BUF Gerbe (2), (Gaustad, Boyes), 19:10

    Garon and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and third stars.

    Sloppy game. Ugly game. But, for the Lightning to pull themselves off the mat after falling behind 2-0 early is an outstanding sign. Special thanks to Ryan Miller for allowing a couple of iffy goals.

    Brett Connolly was +1 with 1 hit in 15:17. He got higher ice time tonight playing with Vinny and Marty, and they were the most dangerous line on the ice tonight. It's decision time right now for Steve Yzerman, but my guess is the coaching staff has already given him the thumbs up with 15 minutes on the big line in this game.

    Blair Jones was -1 with 1 hit in 7:18.
