    No cigar.

    Third Period


    PHI- Richards, Timonen
    TB- Moore

    Dominic Moore and Victor Hedman were the game's first and third stars.

    I give a lot of credit for how the Lightning responded to falling behind by a pair of goals. They responded to adversity the exact opposite to how they did in the last Buffalo game, and that's a welcome sight to see.

    Good news/bad news: the Lightning fall 5 points back of the Flyers for 1st place in the conference, but they did move to 6 points ahead of Washington in the Southeast Division with 25 games left in the regular season.

    Johan Harju was +1 in 8:24.

    Michael Vernace had his first NHL assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:44.

    So close, and yet so far.


    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 20 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Collins, (4) (Beagle, Yeo), 14:12

    Second Period
    NOR Angelidis, (16) (Quick, Wright), 10:50
    HER Aucoin, (15) (Yeo, Greentree), 19:42

    Third Period

    Mike Angelidis was the game's third star.

    Norfolk outshot Hershey 30-20, but journeyman Todd Ford stopped 29 shots for the win.

    The tight loss drops Norfolk 7 points behind 2nd place Hershey. Fortunately for the Admirals, Charlotte lost to Albany tonight, so they remain 1 point back of 3rd place. However, they now find themselves in a spot they didn't want to be in, having squandered a game in hand and holding just a 3 point lead over 5th place Binghamton. That means Norfolk, which was robbed blind a season go, could find themselves praying the crossover delivers them to the playoffs this year. If Norfolk were to finish in 5th in the East Division, but have more points that the 4th place team in the Atlantic, they would crossover and likely draw either Manchester or Portland in the opening round. Currently, the Admirals hold a 7 point lead over Worcester, which is in 4th in the Atlantic. However, the Sharks do hold 3 games in hand.

    26 games remain in the regular season. Norfolk plays East Division 1st place team Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday at Scope.

    Penticton Vees 4 @ Prince George Spruce Kings 3 (OT)
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 55 GP, 25-42-67, 24 PIM

    The Vees gave up leads of 2-0 and 3-1, but still prevailed in overtime. Fresh off a hat trick Saturday night, O’Donnell was held off the scoresheet Sunday.


    Fargo Force 6 @ Muskegon Lumberjacks 4
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 15-26-41, +21, 20 PIM

    The Force scored the game’s final five goals to earn a road win.


    Guelph Storm 3 @ London Knights 2
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – knee)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik missed the game with a knee injury. No details have been released on the severity of the injury. He scored a goal in the third period of Saturday night’s game, so if he was hurt, it happened late – or they kept him out as a precaution. It’s all speculation at this point. Guelph put up 50 shots on London Sunday, scoring three times in the third period to erase a 2-0 deficit and steal a win.


    Tri-City Americans 6 @ Chilliwack Bruins 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    With Tri-City: 14 GP, 7-15-22, +2, 30 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 23-26-49, -10, 70 PIM

    Ashton broke a seven game goal-less drought and notched three points, helping TC to a big win in Chilliwack.

    Prince George Cougars 4 @ Red Deer Rebels 3
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season totals: 44 GP, 35-21-56, -6, 22 PIM

    Prince George saw their 2-1 third period lead turn into a 3-2 deficit before Connolly scored with just under two minutes left in the game to tie game, and again in overtime to win it for the Cougars. Connolly is up to eighth in the league in goals scored. Undersized center Tyler Johnson of Spokane (undrafted overager) leads with 43. Possible first overall pick in 2011, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, was scoreless Sunday against the Cougars for the Rebels.

    Russia 4 @ Czech Republic 2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, DNP
    Tournament totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Ex-Ducks draft pick Maxim Rybin had a pair of goals to help lead Russia to a 4-2 win over the Czech Republic. Lightning overage netminder Vasily Koshechkin did not dress for the game and did not play in the tournament. He was listed on Russia's tournament opening roster, but the goaltending duties for the LG Hockey Games were handled by Mikhail Biryukov of Yaroslavl and Alexei Volkov of Ekaterinburg.

    Elsewhere, Sweden defeated archrival Finland 3-2 in a shootout. Ex-Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo allowed 2 goals on 21 shots and 2 of 3 shooters to beat him for the shootout loss. Ex-Lightning camper Niklas Persson had an assist in the match for the Swedes while ex-Lightning defenseman Janne Niskala had an assist for the Finns.

    Sweden wins the LG Hockey Games with Russia finishing second, Finland in third, and the Czechs in last place. Swedish Elitserien matches begin again on Thursday, 2/17/11, and the Russian KHL gets back into action tomorrow, with a match between Chekhov and Novokuznetsk.

    Season totals: 54 GP, 25-42-67, 24 PIM

    O’Donnell had a hat trick for the Vees, who scored five times in the first period en route to putting up a snowman against Quesnel. O’Donnell is tied for 20th in the league in goals and 14th in points. (Vees Blog photo)


    Fargo Force 4 @ Indiana Ice 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 34 GP, 15-25-40, +19, 20 PIM

    Mullin is now tied for ninth in the league in total points and is fourth in plus/minus. The league leader in points, Indiana’s Blake Coleman (undrafted), had the Ice’s only goal of the game. Coleman, a Miami (Ohio) commit like Mullin, is 12 points ahead of anyone else in the league at 60 in 41 games. This is his second season in the USHL.


    Val-d’Or Foreurs 0 @ Gatineau Olympiques 3
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM (interference), 2 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 47 GP, 6-20-26, +9, 28 PIM

    Gatineau scored twice in the last two minutes of the second period, then added an empty netter with 21 seconds left to finish the game’s scoring. Janosik is third among Gatineau defensemen in points.


    Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 1
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm/wrist)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 36 saves on 37 shots, *Second Star*
    With Attack: 10 GP, 7-1-0-0, 2.87 GAA, .908 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 28 GP, 16-4-1-1, 3.19 GAA, .890 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador came up big for the Attack, who was outshot 37-20 in the game. Zador, a backup with Owen Sound, extended his personal winning streak to five games.


    Tri-City Americans 2 @ Spokane Chiefs 7
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (interference, roughing)
    With Tri-City: 13 GP, 6-13-19, E, 30 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 22-24-46, -12, 70 PIM

    TC pasted first-place Portland in their last game, then faltered on the road against Spokane, who sits directly in front of the Americans in the division and conference standings, now three points ahead. Ashton had 14 points (six goals) in his first six games with TC, but has just five points (no goals) in his last seven with the club.

    Prince George Cougars 1 @ Calgary Hitmen 4
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-0-1, -3, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 43 GP, 33-21-54, -6, 22 PIM

    Connolly has at least a goal in four consecutive games. He has a seven game point streak. This loss will not sit well with the Cougars, who are battling for playoff positioning and were playing the league’s worst team Saturday.

    Saskatoon Blades 5 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 3
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (roughing)
    Season totals: 56 GP, 3-13-16, +19, 123 PIM

    Saskatoon extended their unbeaten streak to 11 games.

    Florida Everblades 2 @ Cincinnati Cyclones 3
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out for 3 months - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping), 1 SOG
    Season totals: 34 GP, 9-8-17, -10, 25 PIM
    G Jaroslav Janus: Loss, 21 saves on 23 shots
    Season totals: 23 GP, 9-12-0-0, 3.08 GAA, .910 sv%, 0 SO

    #15 Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ #12 Miami RedHawks 3
    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 32 GP, 1-7-8, +14, 46 PIM

    Western Michigan's 14 game unbeaten streak has come to an end at the hands of Miami. The Broncos went two months and a day without a regulation or overtime loss before Saturday night's defeat. Western is sitting in 4th in the CCHA, nine points behind first place Notre Dame. The Broncos are at #13 Michigan next weekend for two games.

    Cornell Big Red 3 @ #8 Rensselaer Engineers 2 (OT)
    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 25 GP, 1-5-6, +9, 24 PIM

    After a rough start, the Big Red have just two losses in their last 12 games and have moved into 4th in the ECAC, just seven points behind first place Union. Cornell should creep back into the top 20 after this win over a top 10 team.

    Vermont Catamounts 2 @ #18 Maine Black Bears 4
    F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
    Season totals: 23 GP, 2-0-2, -4, 2 PIM

    Vermont split the weekend series with the Black Bears. The Catamounts are at home against #6 New Hampshire next weekend.

    9 straight overtime victories!

    TB-4 (OT)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 34 shots for the overtime victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    04:26 TB Downie (7), St Louis (46), Stamkos (34)
    07:41 TB Lecavalier (12), Purcell (24), Gagne (9)(PP)
    09:08 CAR Staal (27), Pitkanen (22), Cole (18)(PP)

    Third Period
    12:48 TB Bergenheim (11), Tyrell (7)
    19:08 CAR Skinner (21), Staal (29), Ruutu (30)
    19:27 CAR Cole (15), Pitkanen (23), Corvo (21)

    01:32 TB Moore (10), Bergeron (3)

    Marc-Andre Bergeron and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's first and second stars. The Lecavalier line is starting to look like the Lightning's best line over the past week or two, and Lecavalier is starting to look like the Lightning's best player. And with that news, the rest of the NHL should collectively tremble in fear.

    9 straight overtime victories is just remarkable. Ordinarilly, a team might've collapsed after blowing a 2 goal lead in the final minute of a game. But, this Lightning team just knows how to win in overtime. I don't know if it'll translate perfectly to the playoffs, given that regular season overtime is 4-on-4, but it has to be a little bit of an advantage to the Lightning to have that confidence in deadlocked, sudden death games.

    The state of play in the Southeast Division and Eastern Conference has the Lightning opening up a 5 point advantage on the Caps for 1st place in the division and pulling to within 4 points of the Flyers for 1st in the conference with Philly holding 2 games in hand. The Lightning also hold a 13 point lead on 9th place Atlanta, so it would take a colossal collapse with 26 regular season games to go for the Lightning to miss the postseason.

    Johan Harju had 2 shots and 1 hit in 7:51. He got a fair amount of ice time in the opening period, but when games are tight rookie callups tend to sit, and that's what happened in the last 2 periods.

    Norfolk's goaltenders and defense hold Syracuse to zero for the weekend.


    Dustin Tokarski stopped all 19 shots he faced for the shutout. It's Tokarski's 1st shutout of the season after posting 4 a year ago, and it comes one night after Mike Smith blanked Syracuse 3-0.

    First Period
    NOR Jones, (16) (Ritola), 14:30
    NOR Pouliot, (15) (Ritola, Vernace), 16:12 (PP)
    NOR Barberio, (5) (Szczechura, Durno), 19:55

    Second Period

    Third Period
    NOR Milam, (10) (Berry, Vernace), 19:04 (PP)

    Tokarski, Mattias Ritola, and Blair Jones were the game's three stars. Ritola has 2 assists in each of his first 2 games as an Admiral. Jones has points in 6 of his last 7 contests.

    Stat of the game: through 40 minutes the Admirals had only allowed the Syracuse Crunch 6 shots on goal: 3 in the first period and 3 in the second period. Norfolk showed up this weekend ready to play in their own 3rd of the rink, and to hold any professional team to 3 shots in a period is remarkable. To do it for 2 periods in a row is absolutely absurd, though.

    Tonight's schedule saw intra-divisional games across the board in the East Division with Binghamton beating Hershey, Norfolk beating Syracuse, and Adirondack taking out Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Also, Charlotte currently is tied late in the third period with Albany. So the state of play in the East Division has Norfolk maintaining its 5 point lead on 5th place Binghamton, moving to within 5 points of 2nd place Hershey, and temporarily opening up a 2 point lead on 3rd place Charlotte, pending the outcome of their game against Albany. 27 games remain on the regular season schedule and points are at a premium already.

    Albany beats Charlotte 4-3 in OT, so the Admirals now hold 3rd place in the East Division outright, by 1 solitary point.

    Hershey travels to Norfolk Tuesday to play the Admirals, and a regulation win over the Bears can shrink Hershey's advantage in the standings to a scant 3 points. Norfolk needs that game in the worst way.
