    AIK 3 @ Sodertalje 2
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 17 GP, 4-10-0, 0 SO, 2.89 GAA, .890 sv%

    Oscar Steen of AIK scored a power play goal 27 seconds into the third period to lift AIK to a 3-2 win over Sodertalje in a key late season Elitserien matchup. Ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll had a goal in the match for Sodertalje, which was his team leading 19th of the season, which is tied for 4th best in the league.

    Sodertalje still holds a slim 1 point lead over Timra for 8th on the Elitserien table. But, with regulation wins counting as 3 points in Sweden, the truth is that the race for the final playoff spot and for avoiding the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation tournament is a near dead heat between 5 teams heading into the final 8 games of the regular season. Sodertalje sits in 8th at 63 points, Timra in 9th with 62, MODO in 10th with 61, and AIK and Frolunda are just one regulation win back at 60 points and occupying 11th and 12th, respectively. Unfortunately for Sodertalje, they have the second worst goal differential in the league (-25), so the tiebreak scenarios are not favorable to their cause.

    The Elitserien is off until 2/17/11 for the LG Hockey Games.

    Trail Smoke Eaters 6 @ Penticton Vees 0
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 22-42-64, 22 PIM

    A tough home loss for Penticton, who allowed Trail to pull within four points of them in the Interior Conference. The Vees remain in second in the conference, six points behind Vernon.


    Omaha Lancers 2 @ Fargo Force 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 32 GP, 15-23-38, +18, 18 PIM

    Mullin returned to Fargo’s lineup after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. The Force’s leading scorer managed an assist, but Fargo couldn’t get a win over Omaha.


    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 4 (SO)
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 2 Hits
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 6-19-25, +9, 26 PIM

    Janosik was scoreless as the Olympiques built a 3-1 lead, then let it fade away in the third period before gaining the second point in a shootout.

    Montreal Juniors 1 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Quebec Remparts 0
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 9-26-35, +18, 22 PIM

    Trevor Parkes (undrafted) scored midway through the first period and the Juniors made it hold up against Patrick Roy’s Remparts.


    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Erie Otters 5
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

    After spotting the Otters a 4-0 lead, the Greyhounds mounted a furious comeback to make it 4-3, then gave up an empty netter. Beukeboom left the game early with a possible concussion after taking an elbow to the head. The Soo captain missed several games earlier this season with a concussion. A St. Pete Times report states Brock had one before being drafted, too. Brock’s father, former NHLer Jeff Beukeboom, had his career cut short by post concussion syndrome caused by multiple head injuries throughout his NHL career – the worst of which was a sucker punch from the Kings Matt Johnson.


    Spokane Chiefs 2 @ Tri-City Americans 5
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM (slashing)
    With Tri-City: 10 GP, 6-11-17, +5, 22 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 22-22-44, -7, 66 PIM

    Ashton played his 10th game with the Americans and earned his 16th and 17th points with the club. Tri-City is 8-1-1 in those 10 games. With the win, TC leapfrogged Spokane into second in the division, four points behind Portland. The Ams and Winterhawks play Saturday.

    Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Prince George Cougars 4
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 28-18-46, -9, 18 PIM

    Season totals: 29 GP, 0-6-6, +13, 42 PIM

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-9-16, +3, 26 PIM

    Season totals: 22 GP, 1-5-6, +11, 22 PIM

    Greenville Road Warriors 3 @ Florida Everblades 2
    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, -3, 2 PIM (slashing), 2 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 7-7-14, -10, 23 PIM

    Greenville took Game 2 of a three-game set with Florida and took back their division lead from the Everblades. The Road Warriors scored twice in the third period to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 win. Former Quinnipiac star Brandon Wong scored the game winning goal for Greenville with just under four minutes left in the game. Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings was a team-worst minus-3 on the night. The teams will play again Saturday.

    It shouldn't have taken falling behind by 2 goals for the Lightning to play with some urgency in a game with stakes this high.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    03:21 TB Purcell (11), Gagne (7), Hedman (18)
    09:09 WSH Backstrom (13), Ovechkin (33), Green (16)

    Second Period
    06:38 WSH Laich (10), Perreault (5), Beagle (1)
    08:25 WSH Ovechkin (20), Backstrom (35), Carlson (17)(PP)
    19:19 TB Clark (8), Purcell (23), Gagne (8)(PP)

    Third Period
    12:22 WSH Backstrom (14), Ovechkin (34), Chimera (11)
    19:22 WSH Chimera (8), Ovechkin (35), Backstrom (36)(EN)

    Simon Gagne was the game's third star, as his continued momentum should terrify the rest of the league.

    Put simply, though, the Capitals wanted this game more. They knew they'd have a serious uphill battle if they fell 7 points back in the division and they played with urgency. The Lightning didn't, and had a heightened, false sense of security after Varlamov gave up a soft serve in a waffle cone to Purcell on the game's opening goal. It wasn't until the Lightning fell behind 3-1 that they decided to try to match Washington's intensity, and by then it was too late. Hopefully they don't pay too high a price for the lesson they had to learn tonight. They can't read their press clippings or get too happy with themselves, even with a win as big as their victory against Philly. Every night is a big game against a good opponent in the NHL, especially when people start looking at a club as possibly being the best in the conference, which has the effect of painting a target on the backs of that club.

    Norfolk escapes after blowing another lead late.

    NOR-4 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NOR Bergeron, (1) (Vernace, Jones), 7:22 (PP)
    BNG Butler, (22) (Greening, Locke), 10:13
    NOR Harju, (18) (Giliati, Pouliot), 16:56
    NOR Giliati, (6) (Pouliot, Bergeron), 19:11

    Third Period
    BNG Wiercioch, (3) (O'Brien, Smith), 7:59 (PP)
    BNG Daugavins, (11) (Condra, Locke), 18:55

    NOR Bergeron, (2) (Pouliot, Quick), 3:03 (PP)

    Marc-Andre Bergeron and Stefano Giliati were the game's first and second stars.

    Norfolk got the two points, which is the big thing, but it continues to be a recurring problem for the Admirals when it comes to protecting leads late. They were outshot 14-3 in the third period and allowed 2 goals to the Senators in the frame. They capped a bad period by allowing the equalizer with 1:05 left to go in the period, and thereby surrendered a point to the division rival they currently have in their rear view mirror. Not good. The Admirals still look in line to be a playoff club, but they may be an early out if they can't get better defensively. Getting Mathieu Roy back yesterday was probably an excellent start to solving that puzzle.

    With 2 goals and 1 assist tonight, Marc-Andre Bergeron is signaling that he's starting to round into form. After posting just 1 point in his first 6 games as an Admiral, Bergeron has 7 points in his last 7.

    Johan Harju's goal tonight marked the first time he's scored goals in back-to-back games since late November. One wonders if Harju is enjoying an All-Star bounce or if possibly a certain GM or Assistant GM had a heart-to-heart with Big Joe after reports surfaced in the Swedish papers he was unhappy.

    Norfolk holds a 2 point lead over Charlotte for 3rd in the East Division and a 7 point lead over 5th place Binghamton. A win tomorrow night (in regulation) could really put Bingo in a bad way, and can help Norfolk try to close the gap on surging second place Hershey.

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2 @ Niagara IceDogs 6
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

    Niagara scored the game’s final four goals after the Soo had taken a 3-2 lead 18 seconds into the third period. Brett Beukeboom was scoreless for the Greyhounds.

    Owen Sound Attack 5 @ Peterborough Petes 1
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 42 GP, 1-16-17, +15, 12 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 24 saves on 25 shots
    With Attack: 9 GP, 6-1-0-0, 3.11 GAA, .897 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 16-4-1-1, 3.28 GAA, .885 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador (pictured) extended his personal winning streak to four games. He has just one loss in his last 14 appearances, and saw his save percentage with the Attack inch closer to the .900 mark. Schemitsch, who had 40 points as a rookie last year, has just four points - all assists - in his last 15 games.

    Admirals come back to steal a point in a wild goal-fest.

    CHA-7 (OT)

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 7 goals on 29 shots for the loss in his first AHL start of the season. I miss the pre-knee injury Janus from last season.

    First Period
    CHA Micflikier, (20) , 3:50
    CHA Terry, (19) (Matsumoto), 4:05
    NOR Jones, (14) (Wright, Bergeron), 8:01 (PP)
    NOR Fornataro, (15) (Barberio, Giliati), 13:18
    CHA Nash, (11) (Rodney, Samson), 18:18 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Harju, (17) (Roy, Wright), 4:51
    CHA Dalpe, (15) (Terry), 8:08
    NOR Gudas, (4) (Berry, Barberio), 14:00
    CHA Matsumoto, (13) , 17:14 (SH)

    Third Period
    CHA Matsumoto, (14) (Jordan), 8:59
    NOR Berry, (12) (Pouliot), 11:53 (PP)
    NOR Pouliot, (13) (Fornataro, Harju), 17:27

    CHA Samson, (24) , 1:11

    Alex Berry was the game's third star.

    Norfolk had to work in Janus somewhere over this back-to-back-to-back games set, and the results were going to be unpredictable. Unfortunately, giving up 7 goals, the worst case scenario occured. I suspect Tic will be back in against Binghamton tomorrow and on Saturday.

    I am heartened to see Johan Harju follow up his assist in the East's 11-8 All-Star victory on Monday night with a multi-point night in Charlotte. Big Joe hadn't had a multi-point game since November, although in fairness some of that time he was up with Tampa. I, personally, feel that it's important for Tampa Bay to keep Harju and other guys like Blair Jones rolling in Norfolk, because they'll provide depth in the case of injuries come playoff time.

    Norfolk desperately needs to take these upcoming games against fifth place Binghamton, or they could really play themselves into some trouble. Right now Norfolk is in third place in the East, tied at 59 points with Charlotte with a game in hand. But, Bingo lurks 6 points back. If they were to sweep, Norfolk would find it in some deep trouble. A Norfolk sweep this weekend could really help put the Sens away. It's a crossroads of the season.

    Linkopings 4 @ Sodertalje 0
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Loss, 25/29, 4.00 GAA, .862 sv%
    Season totals: 17 GP, 4-10-0, 0 SO, 2.89 GAA, .890 sv%

    Riku Helenius' momentum died at the hands of former Lightning draft pick Fredrik Norrena, who stopped all 24 shots he faced in Linkopings' 4-0 blanking of Sodertalje. Norrena also had an assist in the match. Former Lightning forward Jan Hlavac had an assist on Linkopings' opening goal, scored just 35 seconds into the match. Fortunately for Sodertalje, both MODO and Frolunda also lost today, so the club maintains its hold on the last playoff spot in the Elitserien by 3 points in the standings.

    Kazan 6 @ Novgorod 4
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 43 GP, 2-4-6, +6, 30 PIM

    Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 7:07 in Kazan's 6-4 win over Novgorod. Former Ducks draft pick Janne Pesonen led Kazan with a pair of goals in the match. Novgorod's Matt Ellison, a former Hawks draft pick and Norfolk Admiral, was the high man in the match with 1 goal and 3 points for Novgorod. The KHL will be off until February 14th for the KHL All-Star Game and the LG Hockey Games.

    Kitchener Rangers 2 @ Guelph Storm 3 (SO)
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM (tripping, roughing), *First Star*
    With Guelph: 18 GP, 10-11-21, -5, 26 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 45 GP, 24-28-52, -5, 59 PIM

    In addition to scoring the game’s opening goal, Panik scored the game deciding shootout goal to break a 2-2 shootout tie and give the Storm a much-needed win over division rival Kitchener. With the shootout goal, Panik made up for a roughing penalty late in overtime. With the win, Guelph moved up to seventh place in the Western Conference, 11 points ahead of ninth place Sarnia. The Storm is fourth in the Midwest Division, 13 points behind Owen Sound for first and one point ahead of Erie for fifth.


    Edmonton Oil Kings 3 @ Tri-City Americans 4 (OT)
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM

    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 22-20-42, -7, 64 PIM

    TC got a power play goal in overtime to defeat the Oil Kings 4-3 and take the two points. Ashton had a power play assist in the second period on a goal that gave the Americans a brief 2-0 lead. Edmonton would score the game’s next three goals.

    Regina Pats 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 6
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 12 PIM (fighting vs. Shayne Neigum, cross-checking, fighting vs. Shayne Neigum)
