Game Night Results

  • 6 years 25 weeks ago

    The devil is in the details.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss. He made some key saves early to keep the Lightning in it, but the 4th goal was a back breaker that he should have made a better effort on.

    First Period
    DET Datsyuk (7), (Bertuzzi, Franzen), 4:58
    DET Ericsson (1), (Filppula), 11:04

    Second Period
    TB St. Louis (7), (Purcell, Bergeron)(PP), 9:35
    TB Stamkos (16), (Gilroy, Lecavalier), 19:46

    Third Period
    DET Holmstrom (4), (Lidstrom, Datsyuk)(PP), 4:22
    DET Helm (3), (Kindl, Ericsson), 13:14

    Martin St. Louis was the game's second star.

    What tonight proved is that from a skill and athleticism standpoint, the Lightning can absolutely hang with the Detroit Red Wings. That bodes well for down the road. But, what it also proved is they're just a better team, detail-wise, than the Lightning, and that's why they got the 2 points. That's what these past two games proved to me. Tonight it was faceoffs. Monday night it was making some untimely mistakes. It's details, and it's a shame, because those were two pretty good efforts from the Lightning and they obviously didn't get the results. But, I'm sure Guy Boucher will emphasize that it's a process and they'll work on shoring up those areas.

    Brett Connoly had 1 shot and 4 hits in 9:30. Coach Boucher's not stupid. He's not throwing a rookie out against the Wings for big minutes to let the young man get eaten alive.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 1 @ Chelyabinsk 4
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals (KHL): 5 GP, 0-0-0, +9, 4 PIM
    Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 6-9-15, +12, 20 PIM

    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 22/25, 3.10 GAA, .880 sv%
    Season totals: 19 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Give it another month, and Nikita Nesterov might lead the whole league in +/-. The young blueliner was +3 with a minor for interference in Chelyabinsk's 4-1 smackdown of Vasily Koshechkin and Cherepovets. The blueliner's +9 KHL mark is quickly catching up to his solid +12 mark so far this year in junior play in the MHL. Cherepovets draws Dynamo Minsk on Sunday. Chelyabinsk gets Ekaterinburg on Tuesday.

    Elsewhere, Nikita Kucherov did not appear for CSKA in their 3-2 shootout loss to Novgorod. However, his junior linemate Nikita Gusev was called up for the game. No word yet on a potential injury/illness.

    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Rimouski Oceanic 6

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 2-15-17, +3, 21 PIM

    Alexander Mallet (undrafted) had two goals and two assists Tuesday as the Oceanic scored a home win over Janosik and Gatineau.

    St. John Sea Dogs 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 1 (OT)

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 0-4-4, -4, 23 PIM

    The defending Memorial Cup champs got an overtime goal from defenseman Charles-Olivier Roussel (Predators 2009 2nd round), assisted by 2011 picks Zack Phillips (Wild, 1st round) and Tomas Jurco (Red Wings, 2nd round) to defeat the Wilcats 2-1. Lightning prospect Daniel Milan extended his scoreless streak to five games in the loss. Phillips was thought to be a potential draft candidate for the Lightning last summer. The Wild took him with the pick immediately after the Bolts took Vladislav Namestnikov. Phillips leads St. John in scoring with 16 goals and 48 points in 27 games.

    Number one, with a bullet.


    Dustin Tokarski had 16 saves on 18 shots for the win.

    First Period
    WBS Dimitrakos, (6) (Petersen, Craig), 15:36 (PP)
    NOR Angelidis, (5) (Barberio, Vernace), 18:39

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (2) (Smith, Barberio), 10:31
    WBS Street, (6) (Petersen, Wild), 10:53

    Third Period
    NOR Conacher, (12) (Jones, Smith), 8:25 (PP)
    NOR Smith, (10) , 19:16 (EN)

    Cory Conacher (pictured), Blair Jones, and Trevor Smith were the game's three stars.

    Norfolk outshot Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 31-18 in the game. Bear in mind, this is a team the Admirals are tied with that they are supposed to be battling tooth and nail for first in the division, and they absolutely blew them off the rink in the second half of the game tonight.

    Conacher and Smith are now tied for 4th in the league in scoring at 25 points, 5 points back of perennial AHL world beater Keith Aucoin. Carter Ashton sits tied for 19th in scoring despite a season long 5 game scoreless streak. Conacher and Ashton also are tied for 2nd in the league in goals, as well. Smith is 2nd in +/- at +14, behind Cade Fairchild of Peoria at +16.

    Mark Barberio is now 2nd in the league in scoring amongst defensemen, 2 points back of Rockford's Brian Connelly. He's 1 plus behind Smith, tied for 3rd in the league at +13 with, among others, Real Canadian Hero Pierre-Cedric Labrie.

    Next up: Adirondack on Friday at Scope.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    KalPa 2 @ JYP 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 12 GP, 7-5-0, 5 SO, 1.42 GAA, .937

    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but if you had a goaltender who has had a shutout in 42% of his starts through 12 starts, wouldn't you put him in net more? In any event, Riku Helenius sat backup today to Joni Mullykoski in JYP's 2-1 loss to KalPa. JYP draws Tappara on Friday.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    CSKA Jr. 3 @ Togliatti 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

    Where in the world is Nikita Kucherov? The talented forward has yet to appear since the end of the Subway Super Series in Canada. He was not in the lineup again today as CSKA Jr. beat Togliatti Jr. 3-2. Kucherov's linemate for both CSKA Jr. and the Super Series had 1-1-2 in the win. CSKA's big club plays tomorrow. Will Kucherov surface there?

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Timra 2 @ Lulea 1 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 25 GP, 9-4-13, +4, 8 PIM

    Johan Harju was scoreless and failed on his shootout attempt in Lulea's 2-1 loss to Timra. That is a bad loss for Lulea to the last place team on the Elitserien table. They'll try to rebound on Thursday against Skelleftea.

    Little mistakes can cost you a game.


    Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the loss.

    It's frustrating to see the Lightning play a really good first 27 minutes of hockey and see it unravel because of one puckhandling mistake by Eric Brewer. That's what happened tonight, though. The first half of the game the Lightning looked outstanding. That was the best their forecheck looked all season and the first time this Lightning team looked like it was playing the kind of Lightning hockey they played last season.

    But, one mistake and you lose momentum. One mistake and the Lightning started turning over the puck. One mistake and before you know it you're behind the eight ball trying to go through a very disciplined team just to get a chance on a very good goaltender in Backstrom. It's a pity they didn't end up maintaining it and getting the result.

    Bolt Prospects alumni Mike Lundin knifed his ex-team with a 3rd star effort where he played 19:35 in his first game of the season and blocked 5 shots. Not surprised. He's a very good regular season player.

    Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 16:19. He also missed 4 shots.

He has 17 goals this year.
