    Roli's baaaaaaack!


    Dwayne Roloson has officially pulled himself up off the canvas with a 28 save shutout.

    First Period

    Second Period
    TB Lecavalier (5), (Stamkos, Brewer)(PP), 19:20

    Third Period

    Roli and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's first and second stars. Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec got the third star, as he was the only thing keeping the Jets from utter annihilation for the first two periods before Roli slammed the door in the third.

    Ryan Shannon, and not Ritola, was in the lineup for Blair Jones tonight, and performed pretty well, in my opinion.

    And the third jerseys (and the black, and the celebration stripes) retain their unbeaten record this year...

    Brett Connolly had 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:34. Diminished ice time with the score tight is the plight of the NHL rookie.

    Norfolk smacks a good team square across the mouth.


    Jaroslav Janus (pictured) allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Ashton, (9) (Landry, Conacher), 13:13
    NOR Tyrell, (3) , 18:01
    NOR Smith, (5) (Vernace, Palat), 19:27

    Second Period
    NOR Panik, (2) (Smith, Vernace), 1:58 (PP)
    SYR Smith, (1) (Schaus, O'Hanley), 6:34 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Bell, (3) (Carle, O'Hanley), 6:58
    NOR Wyman, (3) (Tyrell, Dimmen), 7:24
    NOR Barberio, (2) (Picard, Vernace), 10:54 (PP)

    Mark Barberio, and Trevor Smith were the game's first and second stars. It's laughable that the Syracuse media had the guts to give one of theirs a star at all in a 6-2 drubbing.

    This was a Syracuse team that had only lost once in regulation coming into the weekend and Norfolk owned them from the drop of the puck. And, what really is exciting is that, although there are guys like Ashton, Conacher, and Barberio that are riding high amongst the league leaders, everyone on the team is chipping in. That's what makes you believe this team is going to be a force wire-to-wire this season.

    Norfolk rolls into Albany on Friday.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 2 @ Assat 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, SO, 36/36, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 8 GP, 4-4-0, 3 SO, 1.65 GAA, .932 sv%

    Holy smokes! Don't call it a comeback, Riku's been here for years. The former first rounder (pictured) notched his second shutout in back to back days as JYP beat Pori Assat 2-0. He earned first star honors in the victory. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had a helper on the first period goal by Jani Tuppurainen, which turned out to be the game winner. Helenius and JYP face Ilves on Tuesday, and have climbed above the line to the all important 6th position on the SM-liiga table, which gives teams a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.

    KHL (Russia):
    CSKA 3 @ Cherepovets 2 (OT)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, OTL, 25/28, 2.86 GAA, .893 sv%
    Season totals: 13 GP, 7-5-0, 1 SO, 2.38 GAA, .926 sv%

    Defenseman Mikhail Pashnin scored a game winning goal in overtime to lead CSKA to a 3-2 win over Cherepovets. Cherepovets gets Chekhov on Monday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Skelleftea 0 @ Lulea 2
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 17 GP, 7-3-10, +3, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju had a first period goal that turned out to be the winner in Lulea's 2-0 shutout of Skelleftea. Wild draft pick Johan Gustafsson stopped all 26 shots he faced for Lulea. Next up is Farjestads on Tuesday.

    Green Bay Gamblers 4 @ Fargo Force 1

    G Adam Wilcox, GB: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 3-1-0, 3.26 GAA, .885 sv%, 0 SO

    After two straight starts last weekend, Wilcox sat backup to Ryan McKay, who stopped 26 of 27 shots in a road win over Fargo.


    Drummondville Voltigeurs 0 @ Gatineau Olympiques 3

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 0-9-9, -2, 11 PIM

    The Volts thought they had a chance to get both Sean Couturier and Ondrej Palat back this season, but with Palat signed by the Lightning and Couturier now staying in Philadelphia with the Flyers, they won’t get either.

    PEI Rocket 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 13 GP, 0-3-3, -5, 13 PIM

    Despite playing most of the year with Coyotes first rounder Brandon Gormley (12 points in 13 games) on the back line, Milan is having a slow start to the year statistically. Dane Phaneuf, brother of the Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf, had an assist for PEI in the game Friday.


    Owen Sound Attack 2 @ London Knights 3 (OT)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (closing hand on puck, hooking)
    Season Totals: 13 GP, 0-4-4, -2, 8 PIM
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 9-10-19, +9, 14 PIM

    In the first match-up of Lightning prospects in the OHL this season, Vladislav Namestnikov (pictured) set up two goals, including the overtime winner, as London beat Geoffrey Schemitsch and Owen Sound 3-2. Both of Namestnikov’s assists came on goals by Lightning prospect camp participant Seth Griffith. Namestnikov has three multi-point games in a row now, and a five game point streak overall.

    F James Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 7 GP, 1-0-1, Even, 4 PIM

    Despite scoring two shorthanded goals, Miami's (2-6-0) losing streak now sits at five straight. Mullin is now scoreless in six games after scoring in the season opener.

    No. 14 Northern Michigan Wildcats 2 @ No. 7 Western Michigan Broncos 4

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 7 GP, 0-2-2, +4, 10 PIM

    Western Michigan (4-0-3) remained unbeaten on the season with a win over rival Northern Michigan in a top 15 match-up. Witkowski (pictured) remains one of WMU's top minute eaters.

    No. 9 Merrimack Warriors 4 @ Vermont Catamounts 1

    F Matt Marshall, UVM: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 2 PIM

    Marshall was back in the lineup for the Catamounts, who fell to Merrimack (5-0-0) as the Warriors remained one of three undefeated teams in Division I, excluding the ECAC teams who have yet to begin season play.

    St. Cloud State Huskies 4 @ No. 12 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 0

    F Brendan O'Donnell, UND: Out - Leg injury
    Season totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM

    North Dakota (2-4-1) is now winless in their last four as Ryan Malone's Alma Matter blanked the Sioux. Huskies freshman goaltender Ryan Faragher recorded his first collegiate shutout, making 44 saves.

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Loss, 28 saves on 35 shots
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0, 4.53 GAA, .847 sv%, 0 SO

    For the second time in the last three games, Nagle gave up seven goals in an Everblades loss. His two other games this season he gave up two goals in each match. Alex Hutchings had a goal and a helper for Florida (2-3-0-1), who plays the Road Warriors again Saturday night. Greenville remains in last place in Florida’s division despite the win.

    Dominant, workmanlike win.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Ashton, (8) (Gudas, Picard), 4:30
    NOR Smith, (4) (Labrie, Ashton), 19:26

    Second Period
    NOR Tyrell, (2) (Wyman), 2:49
    PRO Cunningham, (1) (Bartkowski, MacDonald), 17:21

    Third Period
    PRO Chaput, (2) (Miller, Bodnarchuk), 4:05 (SH)
    NOR Dimmen, (1) (Picard, Conacher), 7:01 (PP)

    Carter Ashton and Alexandre Picard were the game's first and second stars.

    With his 2 point night, Ashton is now tied for 5th in the league in scoring at 13 points, 3 points back of Joe Colborne of Toronto. Teammate Cory Conacher (pictured) is now tied for 8th in the league, 2 points back of Ashton with 11. The two forwards pace all AHL rookies in scoring.

    Norfolk outshot Providence 41-22 in the game, and subsequently doubled them up on the scoreboard.

    With the win, Norfolk leaps Hershey for the top spot in the league at 13 points after the Bears stubbed their toes in Springfield in overtime tonight. Their 40 goals scored also pace the league. On paper, this is a championship caliber team, if they get the goaltending and if their defense continues to mature as the season churns on.

    They roll into Syracuse tomorrow night to face a tough test against a Crunch team that has only lost once, so far, in regulation.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 2 @ TPS 0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, SO, 20/20, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 7 GP, 3-4-0, 2 SO, 1.89 GAA, .916 sv%

    In a battle of former first round draft picks, Riku Helenius bested TPS's Marek Schwarz with a 20 save shutout in JYP's 2-0 win. Helenius retakes the Lightning prospect lead in shutouts with 2, and has a very nice GAA of 1.89, now. JYP faces Assat on Saturday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.)
    CSKA Jr. 5 @ Khabarovsk Jr. 2
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., 0-3-3, +3, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Season totals (MHL): 12 GP, 11-13-24, +4, 8 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM

    I know one team that's not sending Nikita Kucherov a Christmas card this December. Kucherov assisted on all 3 goals of Nikita Gusev's first period natural hat trick to help lead CSKA Jr. to a 5-2 thumping of Khabarovsk Jr. In the 2 game set with Khabarovsk Jr., Kucherov compiled 1-4-5 and a +5 rating with 10 shots on goal.

    No. 18 Lake Superior State Lakers 3 @ No. 16 Miami RedHawks 2 (ot)

    F James Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 6 GP, 1-0-1, Even, 4 PIM

    Boston prospect Zach Trotman, of Lake Superior, scored 42 seconds into overtime to hand the RedHawks (2-5-0) their fourth straight loss. The two teams play again tonight.

  • 6 years 16 weeks ago

    Defense/goaltending snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.


    Mathieu Garon got lifted after allowing 5 goals on 17 shots for the loss. Dwayne Roloson stopped all 10 he faced the rest of the way. So, Garon's hot streak may be over, and hopefully Roli is refreshed from a few nights off.

    First Period
    NSH Kostitsyn (3), (Smith, Fisher), 6:25
    NSH Fisher (1), (Kostitsyn, Smith), 14:05
    TB Stamkos (5), (Purcell, Malone), 16:36
    TB Purcell (3), (Connolly, Bergeron)(PP), 19:33

    Second Period
    NSH Hornqvist (1), (Halischuk, Geoffrion), 7:43
    NSH Spaling (1), (Hillen, Blum), 11:20
    NSH Fisher (2), (Spaling), 12:10

    Third Period
    TB Stamkos (6), (Bergeron, St. Louis), 17:03

    Defensive zone coverage and turnovers continue to be an Achilles Heel. Offense continues to not be a problem, though, even with a fizzling power play. Heaven help the NHL if Boucher can get those items smoothed out. Lecavalier, Stamkos, and St. Louis all seem to be on their games, lately.

    Brett Connolly had a helper and was -2 with 1 hit in 13:42.

    Blair Jones was -2 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 6:24. That's the kind of ugly stat line that gets Mattias Ritola back in the lineup.
