    Heroes (just for one day).


    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TB Lecavalier (18), (Gilroy, St. Louis), 7:11

    Second Period
    BOS Horton (15), (unassisted), 4:28
    TB Pyatt (5), (Downie, Gilroy), 14:11

    Dominic Moore, Tom Pyatt, and Ryan Malone were the game's three stars.

    It took 44 games before the Lightning finally started to play with some pride in the 45th. 1 game in 45 isn't going to fix everything that's gone wrong, but tonight the Lightning are heroes once again.

    Brett Connolly had 2 shots and 1 hit in 6:45.

    Trevor Smith was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 4:53.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 5 hits in 3:35. Now, that's the kind of production the Lightning signed him for.

    Riku Helenius left today's game after 20 minutes after allowing 2 goals on 11 shots in JYP's 5-4 OT loss to Karpat. Initial reports indicate the hook was a coaches decision and not an injury. Ex-Bruins draft pick Ivan Huml scored the overtime winner and also had 2 assists for Karpat. JYP faces HIFK next on Friday.

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 1 @ Victoriaville Tigres 8

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 0-6-6, -13, 35 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 7 GP, 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    The Tigres built a snowman on the scoreboard at home on Sunday with an 8-1 win over the Drakkar. Brandon Hynes (undrafted) had four goals and an assist for Victoriaville. He was a Lightning camper and member of the Bolts' Traverse City team in 2010. Milan’s scoreless and shotless streak reached five games.


    London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (roughing)
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 17-33-50, +14, 38 PIM

    Namestnikov extended his point streak to four games with an assist Sunday in the Soo against USA World Juniors goaltender Jack Campbell (Stars). London scored twice on the power play and twice shorthanded – including a penalty shot by Ryan Rupert (2012). Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and two assists for First Star honors. The story has been told many times, but once again the Bolts let Griffith go back to London after the south Florida rookie tournament and before Lightning training camp started. He was listed on the official Lightning camp roster. Griffith exploded this year and one London media member told me he is “the real deal.” If the Lightning are to get him in camp next year, they’ll have to draft him as Griffith will enter the NHL draft for a second straight year. He went undrafted in 2011. That won't happen again. Griffith is fourth in the league with 61 points (32 goals) in 42 games. Namestnikov is tied for 13th. Griffith is second in goals and his linemate, Namestnikov, is fifth in assists.

    Sudbury Wolves 3 @ Oshawa Generals 2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-11-11, +1, 20 PIM
    With Oshawa: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    Schemitsch is still looking for his first point in an Oshawa uniform.

    The Lightning squander a rare opportunity to begin to turn their season around.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 5 goals on 43 shots for the loss. The inability to make key saves in the third period when the club desperately needed them may have contributed to the writing of their obituary this year.

    First Period
    PIT Neal (23), (Martin, Malkin)(PP), 2:43
    PIT Park (3), (unassisted), 10:38

    Second Period

    Third Period
    PIT Neal (24), (Malkin, Sullivan)(PP), 0:34
    TB Gilroy (1), (Stamkos, St. Louis), 2:00
    TB Malone (9), (Lecavalier, Purcell)(PP), 4:53
    TB Purcell (9), (Lecavalier, Gervais), 6:50
    PIT Malkin (19), (unassisted), 7:38
    PIT Malkin (20), (Orpik), 9:27
    PIT Malkin (21), (unassisted)(EN), 19:04

    Vincent Lecavalier was the game's third star. I've been waiting for the kind of emotional outburst he showed in the third period today chasing down Malkin and throwing some fisticuffs. Frustration? Sure. But the Lightning are too robotic, and they need more than just Steve Downie to show a little fire. I didn't mind it. I wouldn't mind seeing more of it, in fact.

    A 3 goal lead in the third period, as I've said many times, should be a death sentence in pro hockey. And, if you manage to be the team that overcomes such a deficit to win that slim 1 in 100 times it happens, well, it can have a lasting positive effect on a team's confidence. The Lightning desperately needed the kind of bounce in faith they would've gotten from completing their comeback from 3-0 down this afternoon. And, they were right there. It was there for the taking. The failure to convert the opportunity may have been the final nail in the coffin of the team's playoff hopes this year. They needed that. Badly.

    Brett Connolly had 1 hit in 7:08. He's been playing hard and he's been close to creating chances, but they're not quite there for Brett like they were early in the season.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 2 hits, 1 blocked shot, and 5 for fighting in 2:48. That's the kind of stat line I expected to see.

    Fargo Force 4 @ Tri-City Storm 2

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 9 GP, 3-6-0, 3.54 GAA, .902 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Tri-City lost their second consecutive game to Fargo in as many days. After taking the loss in an 8-1 thrashing Friday night, Wilcox was on the bench Saturday. The Storm are alone in the Western Conference cellar with 22 points. They have the third fewest points in the league.


    London Knights 5 @ Saginaw Spirit 4 (SO)

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-2-2 +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 17-32-49, +14, 36 PIM

    Namestnikov (pictured) had two assists to give him five in the last three games and 16 in his last nine games to help lead London to a 5-4 shootout win in Saginaw. Predators first rounder Austin Watson, recently acquired by London, had two goals and the shootout winner for the Knights.

    Chicago Express 3 @ Florida Everblades 4 (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, +2, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-3-3, +5, 0 PIM

    Season Totals: 24 GP, 13-9-0-1, 2.97 GAA, .902 sv%, 1 SO

    After starting 10 straight games for Florida Nagle got his second night off in as many days. Carolina prospect John Muse got the win in net for the Everblades, who won a 15-round shootout for the victory. Charles Landry (pictured with the now defunct Montreal Juniors) played his sixth game for the ‘Blades; he was reassigned by the Norfolk Admirals earlier in the day. Kevin Quick went scoreless in his second ECHL game since the 2009 playoffs. He failed to convert his shootout attempt. Landry did not get into the shootout. Florida is ties for first in the South Division with Gwinnett.

    The Pink Panik!


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. He earned his 16th win of the season and is now clearly in workhorse mode after playing both ends of the back-to-back this weekend.

    First Period
    NOR Panik, (7) (Oberg, Johnson), 13:45

    Second Period
    NOR Panik, (8) , 10:20
    CT Tessier, (7) (Klassen), 15:32
    CT Voros, (4) (Avery), 16:21

    Third Period
    NOR Fornataro, (5) (Kostka, Conacher), 4:14
    NOR Angelidis, (7) (Barberio), 17:21

    Richard Panik, Matt Fornataro, and Mike Kostka were the game's three stars. Panik now has 4 goals and 7 points in his last 7 games. The thought that Panik may finally be putting it together in his rookie season of pro hockey has to make the Lightning absolutely giddy. It's already an embarrassment of riches in Norfolk considering how well the team's other rookies have played.

    Tonight was Norfolk's annual "Pink the Rink" promotion.

    With both Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton winning today, the Admirals managed to maintain position in 2nd in the division, 6 points back of the Bears. Norfolk draws Albany in Albany on Wednesday with a chance to exorcise the demons from a couple of weekends back when the team went on a mini-tailspin.
