Game Night Results

    Boston remains the Lightning's chamber of horrors.


    Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 38 shots for the loss. I thought Smitty's play was subpar tonight. I think Boston's first and third goals were suspect, and I think they really changed the complexion of the game. You can't spot Tim Thomas two extra goals of support in his own barn. He'll beat you.

    First Period
    BOS 8:05, Savard 5 (Morris, Chara)(PP)
    BOS 14:03, Bergeron 8 (Chara, Recchi)

    Second Period
    BOS 13:36, Sturm 7 (Recchi, Bergeron)
    BOS 16:09, Sturm 8 (Bergeron, Recchi)

    Third Period
    TB 1:27, Halpern 4 (Downie, Malone)

    The team didn't play as poorly as the score indicated, outside of the goaltending. The forecheck and the dirty work in front of the opposition's cage is coming along. They'd have gotten more were it not for Thomas being Thomas tonight.

    It was good to see Matt Smaby back in action, although he only got one shift in the third period after seeing about 10-11 minutes in the first two periods. He was feeling his way out in this game. I think he needs a couple of games to get comfortable again and then the hits will start coming. I hope the Lightning recognize what they have in Smaby. Big, physical defensemen are rare and worth their weight in gold. It seems like every year teams draft 2-3 dozen of these types of guys out of junior and only a handful pan out. So, when you get one that does, you need to keep him and continue to develop him.

    Steven Stamkos has gotten into more of a pass-first mode the past couple of games. Shoot the puck, young man. Shoot it from the team hotel. Shoot it from the nacho stand. Shoot it from the restaurant after the game. Shoot the puck. He had 5 shots tonight, but he gave up at least three shots from prime scoring areas. Shoot.

    Zenon Konopka had 2 shots and 4 hits in 8:17.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 shots and 1 hit in 13:16 but was 43% on draws. He's been one of the Lightning's better forwards over the past couple of games.

    James Wright had 2 blocked shots in 8:53.

    Victor Hedman was -2 with 2 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 14:41.

    Kazan 1 @ Togliatti 2
    Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 8-1-9, E, 12 PIM

    Kazan fell to cash-strapped Togliatti on two second period goals by Lada. The older Kazionov, Dimitry, played 12:12 in the match.

    Spartak Moscow 4 @ Dynamo Moscow 2
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 2-5-7, -5, 22 PIM

    It was another frustrating night at the rink for Johan Harju, who was -2 in 13:49 with a second period roughing minor to boot. The lone bright spot was that Harju was 80% on draws in the game, bringing him to 58% on the season with 434 faceoffs taken. Former Lightning checking liner Martin Cibak assisted on Spartak's first goal, which was former NHLer Branko Radivojevic's 11th of the year.

    Season Totals: 26 GP, 2-19-21, +8, 28 PIM

    Barberio’s four-game point streak and streak of three two-assist games came to an end, but the Wildcats still scored a home win over Lewiston.


    Lethbridge Hurricanes 3 @ Medicine Hat Tigers 1

    Season Totals: 26 GP, 13-12-25, -5, 50 PIM

    Lethbridge broke a six-game losing streak while ending Medicine Hat’s streak of seven games without a regulation loss. Ashton will be keeping an eye on Hockey Canada today, as they’re expected to name this year’s WJC selection camp roster at noon (Eastern).

    Brown Bears 4 @ Harvard Crimson 1
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season Totals: 10 GP, 5-4-9, E, 6 PIM

    As if this season wasn’t bad enough for the Crimson, they dropped a home game to (formerly) 1-7-1 Brown. Harvard, now at 1-7-2, is 1-5-2 (4 points) in conference, just ahead of Brown, Clarkson, and Dartmouth at the bottom of the standings, though those three teams have 1-2 games in hand on Harvard.

    Novgorod 3 @ Ekaterinburg 1
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 27 GP, 4-3-7, -8, 10 PIM

    Torpedo got a goal and an assist from former NHL first rounder Pavel Brendl to defeat Ekaterinburg 3-1. Denis Kazionov played 13:19 in the match.

    CSKA 4 @ Magnitogorsk 5
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 22/26, 4.00 GAA, .846 sv%
    Season totals: 28 GP, 13-13, 2 SO, 2.21 GAA, .916 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin got the support of a Sergei Fedorov goal, Fedorov's fifth of the season, to help him even his season record at 13-13 in Magnitogorsk's 5-4 win over CSKA. Six of Koshechkin's losses this season have come after regulation. Magnitogorsk sits in second in the Eastern Conference, two points behind first place Yulaev. CSKA got Columbus first rounder Nikita Filatov's tenth point of the season, an assist, in the losing effort. Filatov has played just six games for CSKA since being allowed by the Blue Jackets to depart North America for the KHL.

    Yale Bulldogs 0 @ No.19 Vermont Catamounts 1
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 12 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM

    Vermont’s David Pacan (Blackhawks 6/2009) scored the game’s only goal late in the second period to give the Catamounts their second straight win.

  • 6 years 43 weeks ago

    The Lightning were dominated for about 45 minutes, and by then it was too late to come back.


    Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 29 shots for the loss. His first goal allowed was painfully soft, but your team needs to give you goal support.

    First Period
    COL 8:16, Duchene 5 (Stewart)

    Second Period
    COL 13:38, Duchene 6 (Stewart, Stastny)(PP)

    Third Period
    COL 19:46, Wolski 10 (Galiardi)(EN)

    The Lightning absolutely poured it on in the final 15 minutes of the game. If they came out with that intensity, they'd have had a chance.

    Zenon Konopka was -1 with 15 penalty minutes with 1 hit in 5:24.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 shots but was 36% on draws in 11:35. His line played well on the forecheck.

    James Wright was -1 in 10:37.

    Victor Hedman had 1 shot in 17:01.
