    Flip. The. Script.

    TB-4 (SO)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 34 shots and stopped both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session for the big shootout win.

    TB- Lecavalier, Stamkos

    After frittering away 3-4 points already this season by allowing opponents to tie a game late and then losing in the shootout, the Lightning flipped the script to steal 2 points from Minnesota and stay unbeaten in regulation at home.

    Steve Downie had a big goal to key the comeback and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 11:49. He's 5 games from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.

    Zenon Konopka had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 7:17. And, thankfully, he chose not to commit suicide by fighting Boogard.

    Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and was 75% on draws in 11:54. He brought some jump back to the lineup.

    James Wright was -1 with 1 shot in 12:41.

    Victor Hedman had 1 shot in 24:02 in his first game back from the concussion. He was wildly out of position on Minnesota's first goal, but was decent otherwise.

    Omsk 4 @ Ekaterinburg 5 (OT)
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 20 GP, 2-3-5, -5, 8 PIM

    Karri Ramo, Omsk, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 10-7, 2 SO, 1.89 GAA, .912 sv%

    Kazionov potted his second goal of the season to open the game's scoring and played 11:46 in the match. Karri Ramo remains out, presumably due to injury.

    Togliatti 3 @ Dynamo Minsk 4 (SO)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Togliatti, Loss, 17/20, 2.77 GAA, .850 sv%
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-12, 2 SO, 2.19 GAA, .917 sv%

    Koshechkin allowed both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session to score to take the shootout loss in his first game back from the Karjala Cup.

    Kazan 1 @ Dynamo Riga 3
    Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 6-1-7, -4, 10 PIM

    Former NHLer Marcel Hossa had a pair of goals to help lead Riga over Kazan. Kazionov played 14:56 in the match for Kazan.

    Nizhnekamsk 1 @ Dynamo Moscow 3
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 2-4-6, -5, 12 PIM

    Harju helped wash the bitter taste of a bad Karjala Cup tournament out of his mouth with a helper on Linus Omark's 9th goal of the KHL season in the second period of a 3-1 win. The big center/winger played 16:06 in the match and was 67% on draws.

    Oshawa Generals 2 @ Belleville Bulls 1 (SO)
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 23 saves on 24 shots
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 7-7-1-0, 3.48 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO
    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 3-3-6, +1, 20 PIM
    With Bulls: 3 GP, 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    Zador broke a personal seven game losing streak, though he was named a game star in his last appearance. Hopefully this sparks him on another win streak. The lone goal against him was kind of a fluke as he had the puck covered in a goal-mouth scramble, but no whistle was blown. He raised his blocker off the ice to see if the puck was under it, which it was, and a Bull poked it home. It looked like the ref should have blown the whistle (see Bulls highlights below). Zador stopped four of five shooters to secure the shootout win. No word yet why DeCoste missed the game.

    Saginaw Spirit 2 @ Erie Otters 5
    G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Win, 27 saves on 29 shots, 2 PIM (delay of game)
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 2.50 GAA, .909 sv%
    With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

    Janus moved to 2-0 since his return to the OHL from AHL Norfolk. Erie scored four times in the third period to get the win.

    Norfolk came out ready to kick butt tonight.


    Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the win. Slick Rik is now 3-1-0 on the season with a 1.51 GAA and .937 sv%. That's stylish. I wish the Lightning brass gave him a little more love publicly.

    First Period
    NOR Bochenski, (9) (Simek, Jones), 2:06
    NOR Wishart, (1) (Bochenski, Simek), 3:20 (PP)
    NOR Lundin, (2) (Karsums, Hall), 19:14

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (3) (Bochenski, Jackson), 5:26

    Third Period
    BNG Hamel, (3) (Keller, Karlsson), 7:38
    NOR Bochenski, (10) (Jones, Mihalik), 8:05
    BNG Daugavins, (3) (Hennessy, Condra), 8:47

    Brandon Bochenski, Blair Jones, and Ty Wishart were the game's three stars. Bochenski's 4 point night moves him over a point a game for the season with 16 in 15 games. He's currently 9th in the league in scoring. Jones has had two three point games in his last three contests, helping fill the void left when Ryan Craig was called up.

    Don't look now, but Vladimir Mihalik has a three game point streak with four helpers in that span, helping the Admirals out offensively on the blueline in Matt Lashoff's absence due to injury.

    Mike Lundin is on pace for a 48 point season. He's tied for 11th in the league in scoring for defensemen, as of this writing. I would consider he and Bochenski to be very strong candidates to be AHL All-Stars if they stay on schedule.

    Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Rimouski Oceanic 5 (SO)
    D Mark Barberio, MCT:0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 2-12-14, +5, 22 PIM

    Moncton played their first game since October 29 thanks to a flu-cancelled game against Montreal and a long layoff. The Wildcats lost the shootout 2-1 after leading 1-0 at the completion of round 1.


    Calgary Hitmen 2 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
    RW Carter Ashton, LET: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM (roughing, tripping)
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 10-12-22, -5, 38 PIM

    Ashton extended his point streak to seven games with his 10th goal of the season as the Hurricanes beat first place Calgary 3-2. Lethbridge was 0-7 on the power play compared to Calgary’s 2-5. The Hurricanes, who won their third game in a row, climbed out of the cellar with the win and now stand at 8-11-2-0 on the year, 14 points behind Calgary in the Central Division.

    Drew Bannister is still playing hockey?


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the loss. He also stopped a penalty shot in the contest.

    First Period
    BNG St. Pierre, (6) (Hamel, Keller), 1:19 (PP)
    NOR Keller, (3) (Fritz, Lawrence), 14:43

    Second Period
    NOR Szczechura, (6) (Keller), 1:14 (SH)
    BNG Daugavins, (2) (Smith, Hennessy), 4:46

    Third Period
    BNG Smith, (3) (Schira, Daugavins), 7:42 (PP)
    NOR Szczechura, (7) (Mihalik, Tyrell), 13:25 (PP)
    BNG Keller, (8) (Svendsen, Schira), 16:18
    BNG Smith, (4) (Hamel), 19:47 (EN)

    Paul Szczechura and Justin Keller were the game's second and third stars. It's very disappointing to get a game tied up with less than 7 minutes left and still not get any points out of the contest. Dana Tyrell now has helpers in 4 of his last 5 games.

    Minnesota Red 10 vs. Shattuck-St. Mary’s 3 (Championship)
    D Kirill Gotovets, S-SM: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 2-3-5, 33 PIM

    Shattuck advanced to the Bauer NIT Tournament (New Hope, Minnesota) championship game with an 8-1 win over the Dallas Stars and a 7-1 win over the MDHL U-18 White team. They fell hard to a good Minnesota Red squad in the finals, 10-3. Warroad HS senior and North Dakota commit Brock Nelson, a possible Mr. Hockey candidate in Minnesota, had a hat trick for Red. Gotovets, a Cornell commit, played in two of the three games and did not register a point.

    Oshawa Generals 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 4
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 37 saves on 41 shots, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 14 GP, 6-7-1-0, 3.69 GAA, .889 sv%, 1 SO
    C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 20 GP, 4-8-12, +14, 6 PIM

    That’s now six losses in a row for Zador, though he was rewarded for a strong effort against the defending OHL champs with the Third Star award. Panik is scoreless in two games and three of his last four.

    Ottawa 67’s 1 @ Sarnia Sting 2
    LW Matais Sointu, OTT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 3-5-8, +3, 6 PIM

    Sointu missed Saturday’s game, but was back in the lineup Sunday. Ottawa finished their three game weekend 1-2.

    Providence Friars 0 @ No.15 Vermont Catamounts 3
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM

    Vermont broke their three game winless streak with the win (0-2-1). The Catamounts are 3-3-1 on the year.

    Czech Republic 3 @ Russia 4
    Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, Win, 31/34, 2.90 GAA, .912 sv%

    Koshechkin didn't hurt his Olympics stock in this leg of the Euro Tour going 2-0 in both of his starts in this tournament. He finished the Karjala Cup with a 2.83 GAA and .921 sv%.

    Finland 7 @ Sweden 0
    Johan Harju, Sweden, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

    That's an embarassing finish for Team Sweden against their neighbors and rivals, the Finns. Sweden finished second to last at 1-2-0 in the Karjala Cup, and Harju was scoreless in three games, which definitely does hurt his Olympics stock.
