    Slovakia 2 @ Germany 1 (OT)
    Richard Panik, Slovakia, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Tournament totals: 1 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM

    Adam Janosik, Slovakia, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Tournament totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

    Did Richard Panik play well? Check the IIHF website, which has Panik's name splashed on the game story. Panik set up the overtime winning goal with a great cross-ice feed and scored Slovakia's other goal in a 2-1 win over Germany. Panik, Slovakia's captain, was assisted on the opening goal of the match by fellow Lightning prospect Adam Janosik, who fed Panik on a score on a 3-on-2 rush. Slovakia's win likely assures that they won't have to endure the relegation round.

    Tomorrow, the Slovaks draw Team USA and the Canadians draw the Czech Republic.

    The NHL just issued a clarification regarding the Atlanta Thrashers ownership settlement. The Tampa Bay Lightning actually own the Atlanta Thrashers.

    TB-3 (OT)

    Dan Ellis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    08:14 TB Stamkos (28), Malone (18), St Louis (32)

    2nd Period

    Vincent Lecavalier was the game's first star.

    The Lightning have won nine straight games against the Thrashers. Folks should consider the implications of what the Lightning did tonight: the Thrashers were all in for this game, on their home ice. The Lightning came into town with an ailing Martin St. Louis and didn't, seemingly, have quite as much to play for. And the Lightning, honestly, dominated the Thrashers for much of the game. Pavelec kept the Thrashers close enough to take a point, but on balance the Lightning carried the play, holding the Thrashers to just a single scoring chance in the first period and outshooting them 34-28 in the game... with a sick Martin St. Louis who didn't entirely look like himself from the second period on. The Lightning, at 80%, took the Thrashers' best punch and barely flinched. It's hard to imagine the Thrashers jumping over the Lightning, in the long run, considering that.

    Mattias Ritola had 2 shots and 1 hit in 10:31.

    Dana Tyrell had 1 shot and 1 hit in 13:22.

    Norfolk gets Holtby'ed.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 29 shots in the loss.

    Second Period
    NOR Durno, (9) (Harju, Berry), 7:19

    Third Period

    HER Pinizzotto, (6) (Kane, Nycholat), 18:57 (EN)

    Tokarski was the game's third star.

    Hershey is still a dangerous team. They've been lurking in fourth place in the East Division all year, and they can still score goals even after losing a good portion of their championship caliber firepower.

    RW Carter Ashton, CAN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM

    Canada was down 1-0 after one period and tied 2-2 after two before exploding for three goals in the third to defeat Finland in their final pre-competition match. Ashton didn't hit the scoresheet and Connolly apparently missed the game with an injury. His status for Canada's official roster named December 25 is up in the air. Canada will open tournament play December 26.

    Weary Lightning hand Rangers eleven round shootout loss. Tie Caps for first place.

    NYR-3 (SO)

    Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 37 shots before stopping 9 of 11 shooters for the shootout victory. The Lightning evened their shootout record to 2-2 on the season.

    First Period
    02:00 TB St Louis (14), unassisted
    11:16 NYR Fedotenko (6), Boyle (6)
    11:28 NYR Frolov (7), Anisimov (10), Drury (2)
    18:54 TB Stamkos (27), St Louis (31)

    TB- Hedman, Hall, Malone
    NYR- Christensen, Zuccarello

    Martin St. Louis and Ryan Malone were the game's first and third stars.

    The Lightning looked dead tired by the time the third period rolled around, and they were just holding on for dear life getting outshot 37-24 in the process. This team's had a grueling schedule and they found a way to grind out both points tonight. As disappointing as the effort last night was, you have to be proud for the way they scrapped tonight.

    Memo to Marty St. Louis: in the shootout, put that turnaround backhand thing away. Forever. Ditto that thing that Ritola tried. Look at the goals that scored tonight in the shootout: laser shot, laser shot, laser shot. Be assertive, pick a spot, shoot it hard. That's how Victor Hedman is becoming the Lightning's shootout ace. This is the NHL. You're not going to fool the goaltenders at this level consistently with gimmicks or doing things at half speed. Be strong and make the play aggressively, whatever it is, shoot or deke. That's what will get you to the pay window consistently.

    On the good side, it took a while, but the Pens beat the Caps in seven rounds in the shootout in Washington, so the Lightning gained two points on the Thrashers and gained one point on the Capitals and are now in a first place tie with Washington at 45 points. They still have two games in hand on Washington and one game in hand on Atlanta. Merry Christmas, Lightning fans.

    If the Lightning can A.) Get another goaltender on the roster, and B.) Can nail down the number two seed by winning the division (or even run down Philly for the top seed), they can realistically make a run for it all this year.

    Mattias Ritola was -1 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 11:31.

    Dana Tyrell was +1 with 1 shot in 15:58.
