    A feel-good romp in Tampa Bay.


    Dan Ellis allowed just 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory in a surprise start he was not scheduled for. He made a huge save early in the Second Period that allowed the Lightning to maintain momentum and go on to crush Carolina. That's three straight games where the Lightning's goaltenders have only allowed 1 goal. Beautiful.

    First Period
    05:48 TB Moore (6), Purcell (16), Tyrell (4)
    15:52 CAR Samsonov (6), Skinner (16), Cole (8)(PP)
    19:59 TB St Louis (13), Malone (17), Moore (7)

    Second Period
    14:51 TB Clark (7), St Louis (29), Hedman (11)
    16:26 TB Stamkos (26), St Louis (30), Purcell (17)(PP)
    18:58 TB Bergenheim (7), Clark (7), Lecavalier (8)(PP)

    Third Period

    Martin St. Louis, Ellis, and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's three stars.

    This was a solid win in a fairly important game. The Canes came into the night six points back of the Lightning, and Carolina happened to be the 9th place team in the conference. So, it was critical for the Lightning to hold serve at home, especially with Cam Ward out with a rash(?) and a young goaltender who was in the AHL last season between the pipes. Now they've got an 8 point spread on 9th place and are 1 point back in the Division with 2 games in hand on the Thrashers. It's a bigger win than it might have appeared on the surface.

    Dana Tyrell had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots in 15:07.

    Who is the alien in the #41 jersey who has only allowed 2 goals in the span of 2 games.


    Mike Smith stopped 22 of 23 shots for the wins. I know! Who knew?

    First Period

    Second Period
    12:16 TB Gagne (3), Lecavalier (7), St Louis (27)(PP)
    18:10 TB Stamkos (25), St Louis (28), Malone (16)
    19:12 BUF Pominville (5), Hecht (6), Sekera (7)

    Third Period
    19:58 TB St Louis (12), Stamkos (21), Ohlund (4)

    Nate Thompson, Ryan Malone, and Dana Tyrell were the game's three stars.

    It was a workmanlike effort by the Lightning tonight. They played their system and were close to hitting on all cylinders. Their forecheck was strong, their best players played well, and their defense and goaltending were efficient. Make no mistake, Buffalo is in the toilet right now, but they're still a talented team and it takes quite an effort to make them look as inept as they did tonight, getting outshot 37-23.

    Dana Tyrell had 2 shots and 1 hit in 14:19 and was very dangerous shorthanded, to the tune of his speed generating two shorthanded breakaways. And if you were allowed to score goals by putting the puck under the side of the goal, he'd have had his first NHL shortie tonight. It's probably just a matter of time, now. His speed is lethal. Heaven help the NHL if his finishing ever catches up.

    Norfolk learns its lesson and takes care of business in the second game of the set.


    Cedrick Desjardins allowed just 1 goal on 27 shots for the victory. Desjardins raised his season save percentage to .900 with the effort.

    First Period
    NOR Fornataro, (10) (Barberio, Szczechura), 6:36 (PP)
    NOR Barberio, (2) (Szczechura, Wright), 11:11
    NOR Wright, (8) , 16:30 (SH)

    Second Period
    ALB Swift, (8) (Nagy), 8:07
    NOR Wright, (9) (Szczechura, Quick), 15:59 (PP)
    NOR Labrie, (4) (Wright, Wishart), 18:57 (SH)

    Third Period

    James Wright, Mark Barberio, and Paul Szczechura were the game's three stars. Wright finished the game with 2 goals and 2 assists, with 1 goal and 1 assist shorthanded. He now has a very respectable 9 goals and 24 points in 30 games. Remember, this is his rookie AHL campaign, despite having played a half a season in the NHL last year. Barberio has 2 goals and 12 points in 23 games.

    With Norfolk's win and Wilke-Barre/Scranton's loss to Syracuse, Norfolk moves back to within 4 points of the Penguins in the North Division, with both teams tied in the loss column.
