    Niitty steals a point, and the Lightning shooters continue to make fools of themselves in the shootout.

    TB-1 (SO)

    Antero Niittymaki was lights out tonight, stopping 37 of 38 before going 3 for 4 in the shootout session for the shootout loss. He deserved a lot better from the guys in front of him.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NJ 0:50, Zajac 6 (Fraser)

    Third Period
    TB 4:34, Stamkos 10 (St. Louis, Malone)


    NJ- Clarkson
    TB- NONE

    The Lightning absolutely sleepwalked through the first two periods of the game, with the exception perhaps of the final five minutes of the first period. It was terrible. Shots were 28-9 after 40 minutes, for New Jersey. Without Nittymaki, this game would have easily been a blowout. I don't get the inconsistency from this Lightning team from game to game, period to period, and situation to situation. And as far as the shootouts go, if I were Tocchet I'd ban dekes from the star players. Tell them to shoot. At least force the goaltenders to make a save.

    Steve Downie had 5 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 4 hits in 11:08.

    Drew Miller was -1 in 8:51.

    Zenon Konopka had 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and was 50% on draws in 11:04.

    James Wright had 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 14:20.

    Victor Hedman was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 26:24. I'm going to reiterate my request from the last game: I'd like to see him get more shots, particularly on the power play. They need to get him off this pass-first mentality. The scouting report from the Swedish Elitserien is that Victor possesses a world class one-timer. Nothing else is working on the PP (an ugly 0-for-3 tonight). Try a different weapon.

    Harvard Crimson 5 @ Dartmouth Big Green 3
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 2-1-3, +2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*

    Harvard’s regular and conference season debut was a good one for both the team and Killorn. The sophomore scored twice and added an assist in the second period to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead. His assist came on a goal by Canadien’s first rounder Louis Leblanc.

    No.10 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ Maine Black Bears 4
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (hitting from behind), 1 SOG
    Season totals: 5 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM

    Marshall scored his second career goal and first of the season, but No.10 Vermont struggled overall against the Black Bears in Orono. Marshall’s goal came on a slap shot from the right circle that beat the goalie through his five-hole.

    Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ No.20 Michigan State Spartans 2
    D Luke Witkowski , UWM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (high sticking)
    Season totals: 5 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 6 PIM

    Witkowski’s first collegiate point came on the power play. He fired a slap shot that was saved, but the Broncos scored on the rebound to make the score 2-1 in the third period.

    Season totals: 12 GP, 1-1-2, -3, 20 PIM

    LW Matais Sointu, OTT: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 14 GP, 3-4-7, +4, 4 PIM

    A big win for Ottawa. Sointu has been nursing a sore foot caused by a blocked shot.


    Seattle Thunderbirds 4 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
    RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 15 GP, 9-6-15, -7, 24 PIM

    Ashton extended his point streak to three games, albeit in a bad loss to last place Seattle. Lethbridge found themselves down 4-1 entering the third period, but despite a 15-2 shot advantage in the period couldn’t come all the way back.

    Goal support, please.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 20 shots in the loss.

    First Period
    SYR Picard, (5) (Roy, MacKenzie), 0:32

    Second Period

    Third Period
    SYR Pelletier, (3) (Fritsche, MacKenzie), 19:27 (EN)

    Janus was named the game's second star. Norfolk outshot Syracuse 32-21 in the game. There's too much veteran talent in Norfolk to keep struggling offensively like this.

    Payback. Revenge. Gettin' even.


    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the win.

    First Period
    TB 7:20, Stamkos 8 (Lecavalier, St. Louis)(PP)

    Second Period
    TB 4:34, Fedoruk 2 (Hale, Downie)
    TB 14:48, Malone 8 (Hale, Tanguay)

    Third Period
    TB 7:09, Stamkos 9 (Lecavalier, Malone)(PP)
    TB 9:29, Tanguay 1 (Malone, Stamkos)
    OTT 10:17, Ruutu 4 (Kelly, Donovan)
    OTT 14:19, Kovalev 4 (Alfredsson, Lee)

    For the Lightning to crush Ottawa a little over a week after the Senators absolutely embarassed the Lightning 7-1 is a tremendous psychological victory, and the fact they physically outcompeted Ottawa right to the final whistle makes the win that much powerful. A game like this gives the Lightning big mo'. And Alex Tanguay breaks the snide in his first night on the Stamkos line. Beautiful. And, if the early verdict is true and this line continues to be productive, that frees Marty St. Louis up to stay on Vincent Lecavalier's line, and you know eventually those two will click together.

    Steve Downie had an assist and was +1 with 7 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 12:04. He was strong on the puck. He was agitating as could be. He even beat up a bigger man in Jarkko Ruutu. Simply put, it might have been Downie's best game in a Lightning uniform (I'll overlook that first period turnover ten feet inside the Ottawa blueline). I wonder if he might get another shot in Wright's spot on Lecavalier and St. Louis' line at some point.

    Drew Miller was -1 in 11:47. It's bizarre how clean his stat lines are.

    Zenon Konopka was +1 with 5 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 8:55. His stat lines tend to be the antithesis of Miller's. He was also 63% on draws.

    James Wright was -2 in 10:07. Congratulations on sticking with the team, kiddo.

    Victor Hedman had 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 2 blocked shots in 23:53. My current wishes for Hedman: work on keeping the puck in at the point on the PP, and I would like to see the Lightning encourage Hedman to shoot more on the PP. The man possesses a howitzer, but he's been deferring to the vets. Opposing PK's are adjusting to that. Hedman needs to stop being strictly a pass-first player.

    Box score and extended statistics from

  • 5 years 49 weeks ago

    Novokuznetsk 3 @ Togliatti 1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Togliatti, Loss, 15/17, 2.00 GAA, .882 sv%
    Season totals: 17 GP, 7-10, 2 SO, 2.71 GAA, .921 sv%

    Koshechkin's stirling numbers are being wasted by a Togliatti club that just can't seem to give him consistent goal support. Former Bolt Prospect Albert Vishnyakov had a helper in the match for Novokuznetsk.

    Novosibirsk 4 @ Kazan 7
    Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 20 GP, 5-1-6, -4, 10 PIM

    Kazionov failed to hit the scoresheet in 16:25 of ice time despite Kazan hanging a touchdown and an extra point on Novosibirsk. Alexei Morozov had four, count them, four goals in the match for Kazan.

    Ekaterinurg 3 @ KHK MVD 2 (SO)
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, DNP
    Season totals: 19 GP, 1-2-3, -5, 8 PIM

    The younger Kazionov missed today's match, in which Stanislav Zhmakin scored the shootout winner for Ekaterinburg.

    Sudbury Wolves 2 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 3
    RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 11 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 20 PIM

    DeCoste remained in the lineup for two straight games, but failed to manage a point for the Soo in their win against rival Sudbury. SSM sits in second in the West Division with a 9-6-0-1 record, six points behind division leader Windsor. They are 3-6-0-1 in their last 10 games.

    WHL Note: Carter Ashton and Lethbridge received some good news this week when the Anaheim Ducks returned defenseman Luca Sbisa to the junior club. Lethbridge recently climbed out of the Central Division cellar, but has a lackluster 5-9-2-0 record thus far.

    St. Petersburg 2 @ Omsk 3 (SO)
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, No Decision, 7/8, 3.00 GAA, .857 sv%
    Season totals: 18 GP, 10-7, 2 SO, 1.89 GAA, .912 sv%

    Ramo left the match today after the first period. Former Lightning prospect Anton But had a goal in the match for Omsk.

    Dynamo Moscow 1 @ Dynamo Minsk 5
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 2-3-5, -6, 10 PIM

    Harju played 15:50 in the match and was 56% on draws.
