    Dominant. Dominant. Dominant. Dominant.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 18 shots for the victory. If you look up the definition of "light work" you'll see the box score of Tokarski's first two periods in this game. Providence only managed 8 shots (1 every 5 minutes!) in the first two frames. Living the dream.

    First Period
    NOR Jones, (1) (Fornataro, Conacher), 7:34 (PP)
    PRO Tardif, (7) (Camper, Warsofsky), 11:16 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Palat, (1) (Labrie, Vernace), 9:41
    NOR Labrie, (4) (Angelidis, Cote), 18:19

    Third Period
    NOR Gudas, (4) (Smith), 9:00
    NOR Wyman, (4) , 18:30 (EN/SH)

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie (Real Canadian Hero), Blair Jones, and Ondrej Palat were the game's three stars.

    Labrie (pictured) now has 13 points in 19 games and a very nice +13 rating to go with it. There are corpses with better first step acceleration than Labrie, but this guy works his tail off and he contributes in so many different ways.

    For Jones and Palat, it's an interesting dichotomy between the return of the Admirals' all-time leading scorer from what may be his last shot in Tampa Bay and the young rookie scoring his first professional goal and just trying to get ice time to climb the ladder. I'm not surprised in the slightest that Jones immediately scored in this game, though. Heck, I wouldn't be shocked if Blair led Norfolk on a very deep playoff run, now, either.

    Norfolk outshot Providence by a ridiculous 44-18 margin. Providence may be questioning why they bothered to get off the bus, although the Admirals should recognize by now that beating this team again tomorrow night will be difficult. They'll come out playing with a fire lit under them to try not to get embarrassed again, and there will be a tendency toward complacency that the Admirals will need to fight off.

    Back to the business of winning.

    FLA-1 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon had a very solid 23 saves on 24 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    FLA Fleischmann (10), (Weiss), 12:38

    Third Period
    TB Lecavalier (10), (St. Louis), 8:59

    TB Stamkos (12), (St. Louis, Bergeron)(PP), 2:29

    Steven Stamkos and Mathieu Garon were the game's first and second stars. Vincent Lecavalier was robbed, because I thought he was the best player on the ice tonight. He's now at 10 goals in 21 games, which is starting to quietly creep into the range of a 40 goal pace. If he keeps scoring, and everything lines up around him like it probably will (ie, Marty starts scoring again) this team will have one of the best offenses in the league. I know that's bizarre to say on a night where they struggled just to get it to 1-1 to go to overtime, but I have faith that guys like St. Louis will surely get their goals. Vinny's more of a question mark in recent years, and he's scoring right now.

    I'd never move Stamkos out of that left wing circle on the PP. His decision making in other alignments can sometimes be downright awful, but he's diabolical from that spot, and he'd be even more so with a righty shot manning the center point who could bring it hard enough to force the opposing PK to respect him. The Lightning haven't had that guy since Kurtis Foster left town, though, and I wish they'd find one, but they're painfully rare. You have to draft them when you get the opportunity (hint, hint).

    Dana Tyrell with a very productive 10:36. His chemistry with Nate Thompson was immediately in evidence. He looked good. Looked like an NHLer, whereas Blair Jones didn't always have that appearance. He may make Yzerman look foolish for ever having sent him down to Norfolk to start the year.

    Brett Connolly had 1 shot and 2 hits in 13:50. He had a nice play where he pulled up along the right wing boards and made a nice diagonal seam pass through the back door to Brett Clark that was promptly squandered. He looked good, though.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 1 @ Jokerit 0 (SO)
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 26/26, SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 12 GP, 7-5-0, 5 SO, 1.42 GAA, .937 sv%

    12 starts, 5 shutouts. 42% of the time JYP has started Riku Helenius (pictured) this season, he's pitched an 0-fer. In today's shutout, Helenius ran the table with 26 saves in regulation and overtime before slamming the door on every single Jokerit attempt in the shootout. JYP's shootout goal by Antti Jaatinen ended up being the only time the goal light was turned on all night for either club. Helenius grabbed second star honors for his efforts, and JYP moves on to face KalPa on Tuesday. At what point does Helenius start playing his way back into the conversation as a legitimate NHL prospect for the Lightning? It would be the greatest Bolt Prospects story ever.

    KHL (Russia):
    From 11-24-11
    Chelyabinsk 4 @ Dynamo Minsk 2
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 6-9-15, +12, 20 PIM

    Nikita Nesterov earned a post-Super Series callup to the KHL side and was scoreless in Chelyabinsk's 4-2 win over Minsk. He played 8:09 in the match and took a minor for high sticking in the first period. The d-man had played very limited minutes in one other KHL game earlier this year. Chelyabinsk's big club plays Chekhov next on Saturday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Astana Jr. 3 @ CSKA Jr. 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., DNP
    Season totals (MHL): 14 GP, 13-15-28, +8, 28 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Despite 2 late goals, CSKA Jr. fell short 3-2 to Astana Jr. Nikita Kucherov did not dress for CSKA Jr. They will rematch on Saturday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 3 @ HV 71 1
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 9-4-13, +4, 8 PIM

    Lulea starter Johan Gustavsson stopped 21 of 22 shots he faces to lead his club to a 3-1 win over HV 71. Lulea faces Timra on Tuesday. They're currently 4th on the Elitserien table.

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Lincoln Stars 2 (SO)

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 42 saves on 44 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 1 GP, 1-0-0, 1.85 GAA, .952 sv%, 0 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .919 sv%, 1 SO

    Wilcox made his Storm debut after being traded by Green Bay to Tri-City for a first round pick on Monday and earned a First Star for his performance. The future Minnesota Golden Gopher, now the No.1 for a USHL team, stopped 38 of 40 shots in regulation, four of four in overtime, and three of three in the shootout to give his new team a win. The Storm was outshot 44-27 in the game, including 4-0 in overtime when Lincoln was awarded a power play. Wilcox was coming off a shutout in his final game with the Gamblers.

    Florida Everblades 3 @ Toledo Walleye 2

    LW Alex Hutchings, FLA: Did not play (injured)
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-5-12, +3, 10 PIM
    RW Philip-Michael Devos, FLA: 0-2-2, -1, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 4-9-13, -1, 8 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Win, 27 saves on 29 shots
    Season Totals: 9 GP, 4-4-0, 3.30 GAA, .881 sv%, 1 SO

    Nagle had his second straight solid game, stopping 27 of 29 shots for a road win. Hutchings continues to miss time with an undisclosed injury suffered two weekends ago. Norfolk Admirals signee Philip-Michael Devos (pictured) leads the ‘Blades in scoring with 13 in 16 games.

    60 minutes, not 50.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 6 goals on 26 shots for the loss. Ugly.

    First Period
    NOR Angelidis, (4) (Wyman, Fornataro), 16:06

    Second Period
    CHA Samson, (8) (Terry, Nash), 3:09 (PP)
    NOR Smith, (9) (Landry, Labrie), 3:47
    CHA Roy, (2) (Terry, Nash), 5:29 (SH)
    CHA Nash, (2) (Samson, Krueger), 17:27

    Third Period
    NOR Conacher, (10) (Angelidis, Fornataro), 4:28
    CHA Samson, (9) (Terry), 10:04 (PP)
    CHA Matsumoto, (8) , 10:45
    CHA Dalpe, (2) (Matsumoto, Jordan), 17:39 (PP)

    3 unanswered goals in the final 10 minutes were the difference... that and being -4 in goal differential on special teams, including allowing a shorthanded goal. That's just inexcusable. That's how you squander a 37-26 shots advantage.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Linkopings 3 @ Lulea 2 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 6 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 9-4-13, +3, 8 PIM

    Mostly positive signs. Johan Harju had a power play goal and assisted on Chris Abbott's game tying third period goal, but failed twice in the shootout in Lulea's 3-2 loss to Linkopings. Ex-Lightning forward Jan Hlavac was scoreless and failed on his lone shootout attempt in the match for Linkopings. Lulea draws HV 71 on Friday.

    Nope, THAT was probably rock bottom.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 6 goals on 21 shots for the loss before Mathieu Garon allowed 1 on 5 shots the rest of the way. 7 goals on 26 shots is pitiful. Was goaltending the reason for the loss? No. But you can't win with a save percentage that's an eyelash above .750. Can't do it.

    I'm tired of puckhandling mistakes ending up in the back of the net. I'm tired of play acting leading to pucks ending up in the back of the net. These guys need to be playing a very stripped down very focused style right now, and not circus hockey. It's a zoo between the pipes every other game right now.

    First Period
    TOR Macarthur (7), (Gardiner, Connolly), 00:41
    TB Lecavalier (9), (Stamkos, Malone)(PP), 8:38
    TOR Connolly (3), (Kulemin, Franson)(PP), 17:56
    TOR Bozak (3), (Kessel, Connolly)(PP), 19:22

    Second Period
    TOR Colborne (1), (Frattin, Liles), 17:45

    Third Period
    TOR Bozak (4), (unassisted), 3:07
    TOR Lupul (11), (Bozek, Phaneuf), 4:28
    TOR Crabb (3), (Frattin, Gardiner), 14:28

    It was pretty pitiful to allow a goal right off the bat. Then the team responded and looked as good on the forecheck and on the power play as I think I've seen them this season up until Victor Hedman whiffed on what probably should've been a goal off a Marty St. Louis feed, and then took an unlucky 4 minute minor, and the wheels came off. And then the wheels came off again when Roloson once again showed why he should never stray from his net. It's embarrassing. I felt like I was watching a Brian Lawton/Rick Tocchet team, not a Steve Yzerman/Guy Boucher team.

    The situation is not improving to any extent I feel comfortable with. I don't think huge changes have to be made, but I don't think the old, "The answers are in the room," is working. You can't tell me the guys in Norfolk are so bad that they aren't at least worth a look to see if they can inject some fresh blood and enthusiasm into the lineup. This team just looks flat at the start of every game and I honestly wonder how anyone could argue that things would be worse with Carter Ashton or Radko Gudas or Mark Barberio getting an opportunity. You can't tell me that Blair Jones and Bruno Gervais are so much better than those players that it isn't worth even considering, and I don't give a damn how far away the organization thinks Gudas and Barberio are. If you believe they'll bite as dogs they'll bite as puppies. What's the worse that could happen? They'd give up 7 goals to the Maple Leafs?

    Brett Connolly had 1 blocked shot in 11:28.
