    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Omaha Lancers 2

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 30 saves on 32 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 13 GP, 5-8-0, 3.37 GAA, .908 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox (pictured) earned his second straight First Star award by stopping 30 shots in a close road win in Omaha. He made 37 saves last Saturday to defeat Waterloo, 3-2. The Storm are within three points of Des Moines for sixth in the Western Conference, but Des Moines has four games in hand.


    Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 5
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 3 Hits
    Season Totals: 37 GP, 5-20-25, -4, 34 PIM

    Fresh off a career-high three points in his last game, Janosik was scoreless Friday in the house that Brad Richards and Vincent Lecavalier built in Rimouski. Janosik had two goals and an assist earlier in the week against Victoriaville. Friday's game featured seven different goal scorers.


    Windsor Spitfires 2 @ London Knights 5

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 17-36-53, +11, 38 PIM

    London shook off a blowout loss at home to Kitchener earlier in the week by defeating Windsor handily on Friday night. Namestnikov’s goal-less streak reached 12 games. He had a 13-game goal-less drought last year, which was the longest of his short OHL career thus far. Namestnikov has 13 assists over his last 12 games, but only one in his last three contests. Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored his 35th goal of the season on Friday. His 35 goals rank second in the league behind Kings second rounder Tyler Toffoli of the Ottawa 67’s.

    Oshawa Generals 1 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2 (OT)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 0-13-13, +3, 20 PIM
    With Oshawa: 6 GP, 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Schemitsch was back in the lineup after missing Sunday’s game. Kingston’s captain, Cody Alcock (undrafted), scored the game winner for the Fronts.

    Labrie is Superman.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NOR Ashton, (17) (Kostka, Panik), 11:32

    Third Period
    HER Micflikier, (19) (Eakin), 6:30
    NOR Labrie, (7) (Smith, Conacher), 10:04

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie, Carter Ashton, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Ashton now with 2 goals in his last 3 games. You hope it's time for another Carter Ashton boomlet.

    Labrie got off the plane, then got into a phone booth to put on his cape and score the game winning goal. There's not many tough guys who could do what he did: play a strong 2-way game in a 4th line role in Tampa and then turn around and go play on a top line and score the winning goal down in the AHL. This guy's not going away. He's not a flash in the pan.

    Mark it down: 1/27/12 was the day Panik got back to 0.50 points per game. Panik attack, ya'll.

    Norfolk's win ties them with Hershey at 55 points, but they're now 3 points behind the suddenly surging Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. On the one hand, playing in this division makes it extremely tough to get a high seed, which is tough on Norfolk. On the other hand, though, they'll be a lot more battle tested come the postseason having played more games against quality opposition.

    Greenville Road Warriors 4 @ Florida Everblades 3 (SO)

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-3-3, +5, 2 PIM

    Season Totals: 25 GP, 13-10-0-1, 2.97 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

    Florida lost their fifth game in a row, this time at home to Greenville after they had a 3-0 lead to start the third period. Greenville peppered Lightning prospect goalie Pat Nagle with 16 shots in the final period. Nagle stopped a total of 38 shots in regulation and overtime, but gave up two goals on four attempts in the skills competition. Recently re-assigned Norfolk defensemen Charles Landry and Kevin Quick – both of whom saw time at forward for a depleted Admirals squad – played for the Everblades on Thursday. Quick (pictured) had an assist on the game’s opening goal. Of note: Lightning prospect forward Alex Hutchings, out since mid-November with an upper-body injury, has resumed skating with the team.

    KHL (Russia):
    Poprad 3 @ CSKA 2

    Victoriaville Tigres 9 @ Gatineau Olympiques 4

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (holding), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-6-7, -13, 43 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 11 GP, 1-1-2, E, 12 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 2-1-3, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 0 Hits, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 36 GP, 5-20-25, -3, 34 PIM

    The CHL’s main site didn’t list any Tuesday games on their front page so this slipped through the cracks. It’s a shame because we nearly missed Milan’s first goal of the year. He had 14 last season as a rookie with Moncton and hadn’t scored since last year’s playoffs. Janosik had two goals and an assist in the most productive (statistically) game of his QMJHL career.

    Here is Janosik's first goal of the game:

    Victoriaville Tigres 0 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 6

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-6-7, -13, 43 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 11 GP, 1-1-2, E, 12 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Milan played against his former defensive partner, Coyotes first rounder Brandon Gormley, who was traded from Moncton to Shawinigan after the World Junior tournament earlier this month. Gormley had an assist in the game for the Cataractes. Maligned Islanders draft pick Kirill Kabanov had two assists for Shawinigan.


    Kitchener Rangers 8 @ London Knights 3

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 17-36-53, +12, 38 PIM

    Kitchener embarrassed their division rivals and Namestnikov (pictured) on Wednesday night, 8-3. Namestnikov was stripped of the puck while on the power play early, leading to the first Rangers goal. Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith had two goals (33, 34) for London, who outshot Kitchener 48-35. Namestnikov’s minus-3 rating tied a career worst for the Lightning’s 2011 first rounder, set last January 28 in a 6-4 loss to Erie. London is now “only” eight points up on Kitchener for first in the Midwest Division.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Linkopings 1 @ Lulea 3
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 41 GP, 12-6-18, +5, 16 PIM

    Ex-Panthers draft pick Toni Koivisto scored a pair of goals to lead Lulea to a 3-1 victory over Linkopings. Ex-Lightning draft pick Fredrik Norrena allowed 2 goals on 21 shots for the loss for Linkopings. Lulea faces Farjestads on Friday.

    Norfolk Everblades make it respectable...


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    CHA Sutter, (6) (Dadonov, Krueger), 7:19
    CHA Bowman, (11) (Sanguinetti, Jordan), 13:29 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Devos, (3) (Kostka, Palat), 16:10 (PP)

    Third Period
    CHA Pistilli, (9) (Sanguinetti, Terry), 2:32 (PP)
    CHA Dadonov, (6) (Boychuk), 18:55 (EN)
    NOR Neilson, (1) (Panik, Ouellet), 19:50 (PP)

    Considering half of Norfolk's core players were in Tampa Bay as injury replacements, a 2 goal loss isn't a tragedy against one of the Western Conference's best teams. They had 2-3 guys who would otherwise be with the Everblades and a brand new signee, Michael Pelech, who was also up from the Coast. That's the unfortunate part of minor league hockey. Sometimes you're at the mercy of circumstances well beyond your control 6-700 miles away.

    At least there was a Panik attack, though.

    Norfolk draws Hershey on Friday in a big game where, hopefully, they'll get a lot of their guns back in the lineup from Tampa.

    Man, Columbus is dreadful.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the win.

    First Period
    TB Angelidis (1), (unassisted), 13:20
    CBJ Lebda (1), (Brassard, Umberger), 15:07

    Second Period
    TB Lecavalier (19), (Gervais, St. Louis)(PP), 8:19
    TB St. Louis (12), (Lecavalier), 16:56

    Third Period
    CBJ Johansen (9), (Umberger), 5:40
    TB Thompson (5), (Moore, Smith), 11:29

    Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, and Bruno Gervais were the game's three stars.

    Columbus is horrible. If the Lightning had a more functional power play or if Curtis Sanford had been a little worse, the Lightning would've easily doubled their margin of victory. It's a nice win to have going into the All-Star Break, but they're terrible. They looked like a Junior A team, at times.

    The Lightning probably will get a slew of guys back from injury after the break. That's good, because Norfolk's just about down to the popcorn vendors as far as their roster goes.

    Brett Connolly had 1 hit in 6:43.

    Trevor Smith had an assist and was +2 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 13:39. Here's a guy making a move to try and stick. At a bare minimum, he's getting quality minutes on tape for other NHL teams to evaluate.

    Evan Oberg had 1 hit in 1:21 in his debut after being called up from the Delta Airlines Frequent Flyer Club.

    Mike Angelidis had a goal and was +1 with 1 shot in 4:01. It was a soft as hell goal, but no one deserved that moment more than a hard working guy like Angelidis.

    Finally, Pierre-Cedric Labrie was -1 with 3 hits in 5:01.
