    Holtby'ed again.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 22 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Potulny, (14) (Bourque, Aucoin), 3:56 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (15) (Panik, Conacher), 8:46 (PP)

    Second Period
    HER Potulny, (15) (Bourque, Aucoin), 18:44 (PP)
    NOR Conacher, (25) (Johnson, Dimmen), 18:59

    Third Period
    HER Hanson, (9) (Ford), 1:14

    Cory Conacher and Tyler Johnson were the game's second and third stars.

    Norfolk outshot Hershey 40-22, but as has been the case seemingly about a half dozen times over the years, just when the Ads look ready to make their move and establish themselves as the better team, Holtby or one of the other Caps prospect goaltenders stands on their heads. Holding that team, as explosive as it is, to 22 shots is unheard of. To play that well and still lose hurts badly.

    And the Panik attack continues. In the last 16 games, Richard Panik has 6 goals and 13 points and he's now riding a 5 game point streak. It's not quite as impressive as Carter Ashton's ridiculous 11 goals and 17 points in the first 16 games this year, but it's in the ballpark (upper deck, perhaps, but in the ballpark).

    Monday night is the AHL All-Star Game and the Admirals will return to action next Friday against Adirondack. Fortunately, the Penguins got spanked by Binghamton, so they pull into the break just 3 points back in the division despite the loss to the Bears.

    Colgate Raiders 2 @ No. 9 Cornell Big Red 1

    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: Did not play
    Season totals: 12 GP, 1-2-3, Even, 8 PIM

    Colgate jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead and hung on to upset the Big Red at Lynah Rink. The loss broke Cornell’s seven-game unbeaten streak. Gotovets appears to have been a healthy scratch.

    Yale Bulldogs 3 @ Harvard Crimson 4

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 2-0-2, +2, 0 PIM, 10 SOG, *First Star*
    Season totals: 19 GP, 13-12-25, +2, 31 PIM

    In front of a national audience on NBC Sports Network, Killorn (pictured) was named First Star after scoring twice, including the game winning goal over rival Yale. Killorn had a team-leading 10 shots on goal in the game, which gave him 18 shots in his last two games. The senior appears to be ready for the next level and can join the AHL Norfolk Admirals after his season is over – if/when signed.

    Northeastern Huskies 8 @ Vermont Catamounts 3
    F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    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.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    Tappara 2 @ JYP 5
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 30/32, 2.00 GAA, .938 sv%
    Season totals: 24 GP, 17-6-0, 6 SO, 1.54 GAA, .937 sv%

    Former Lightning forward Eric Perrin had a hat trick and an assist, too, in JYP's 5-2 win over Tappara. Lightning prospect Riku Helenius was named the game's third star after stopping 30 shots in the victory. JYP faces Espoo on Saturday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 2 @ Yaroslavl Jr. 10

    Season totals (MHL): 32 GP, 10-16-26, +15, 30 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 7 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov had a power play goal and a shorthanded assist and somehow managed to earn an even rating in Chelyabinsk Jr.'s 10-2 loss to Yaroslavl Jr. He also took a pair of minors for roughing in the match. Chelyabinsk Jr. faces Novgorod Jr. on Sunday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 1 @ Farjestads 3
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 42 GP, 12-6-18, +4, 16 PIM

    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)

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Loss, 38 saves on 41 shots
    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
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 12 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 2 PIM

    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:
