    As furious as I am that the referees made this game last far longer than it should have, how can you not love Secret Weapon 74 for the winner?

    TB-5
    WSH-4 (SO)

    For a guy who statistically allowed 4 goals on 27 shots, Johan Holmqvist played a pretty amazing game. True, his friend the crossbar played a part throughout the game, but to make critical stop after critical stop in the 3rd period and overtime and then put down a 10 for 10 perfect stand in the shootout is amazing. Holmqvist's record remains perfect in shootouts and only 1 shooter, just 1, has found the back of the net against Holmer all season.

    Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier each scored 1 goal and 2 assists in the game as the Lightning stormed back out of a 2 goal hole late in the second period to once again claim a key win in a close game. Ruslan Fedotenko got the comeback ball rolling with a critical individual effort for a goal with under a minute remaining in the second period and Vaclav Prospal added the other Lightning talley. Nick Tarnasky, the night's hero, added an individual helper as did Cory Sarich and Shane O'Brien. The assist was O'Brien's first point as a member of the Lightning (the first of many, knock on wood).

    St. Louis' goal with 3:18 left in regulation looked like the winner before the referees began a bizarre string of borderline calls that put the Lightning down at a 6-on-3 disadvantage in the waning moments. As if that wasn't enough, one of the referees also blocked a Brad Richards attempt on the empty net just moments before Washington sent the game to overtime with under 11 seconds on the clock on a centering attempt that deflected in off of Nolan Pratt. The ridiculousness continued in overtime as the referees overlooked a hold by a Caps defender on Martin St. Louis in overtime only moments later to call a hook on Vincent Lecavalier. Undeterred, the Lightning stonewalled a full 2 minute 4-on-3 penalty in overtime to eventually deliver the game to the shootout. Someone needs to be reprimanded for what occured in that game.

    Fortunately, after 10 rounds of shootout madness that included the unbridled excitment that is a Donald Brashear penalty shot, Tarnasky decided to pull the plug on the Caps with a wrister that beat Brent Johnson and lifted the Lightning to the 5-4 win. With the victory, the Lightning move 4 points ahead of Atlanta in the division with the Thrashers now holding a game in hand. The gap on Carolina also extends to 7 with both teams having played 66 games. Thank you Nick Tarnasky.

    Roster upheval leads to a critical loss.

    DAY-4
    JHN-1

    Morgan Cey allowed 4 goals on 31 shots in the loss. Randy Rowe had the only Chiefs goal off assists from Geoff Waugh and Dimitri Tarabrin. Johnstown's loss puts them three points behind Dayton for the final playoff spot in the North Division. And, with the Falcons recently calling up two of the team's scoring liners and now having their two highest scoring defensemen in Springfield, things look like the could get a little bleak.

    First Period
    JHN Rowe, (15) (Waugh, Tarabrin), 16:48

    Second Period
    DAY Herneisen, (14) (Farynuk), 4:24
    DAY Konsorada, (11) (Walton, Kelly), 17:58
    DAY Kelly, (13) (Manson, Denike), 19:44 (SH)

    Just plain awful.

    SPR-2
    WOR-6

    Karri Ramo allowed 6 goals on 43 shots before giving way to Jonathan Boutin who stopped 2 of 2 shots the rest of the way. Norm Milley and Daniel Corso each had 1 goal and 1 assist for the Falcons while Eric Healey added an individual helper, but with Nick Kuiper and Joe Rullier not in the lineup the Falcons were little match for the Sharks' onslaught tonight getting outshot a staggering 45-27. Milley managed to be named third star of the game, which is little consolation.

    The Falcons are now an unlucky 13 games under .500 for the season.

    You don't see this every day...

    Everett 4-3 @ Prince George 6-2
    Prince George and Everett played a doubleheader of sorts Tuesday night, first completing a suspended game from October, then playing their regularly scheduled contest.

    The game between the teams in Prince George on October 28th, 2006 was called after 40 minutes of play due to damage to the ice at the CN Centre. The Cougars held a 2-1 lead over the Silvertips after the first two periods. On Tuesday night, four months later and with different players, Everett scored a "late" goal to send the October game to extra time, where the Silvertips won the game in a shootout, 3-2. Dane Crowley who was playing in Swift Current during the first two periods of this game, did not register a point for Everett in its conclusion. Vladimir Mihalik, who dressed for Prince George in October, did not register a point, but had 6 minutes in penalties -- 4 in the first two periods and 2 last night. Both players had even ratings. Everett technically dressed 25 players for this game, compared to Prince George's 23.

    In the second game, Mihalik and the Cougars got revenge on the 'Tips, defeating the WHL leaders 6-4. Crowley won the individual battle on the scoresheet with Mihalik, earning 2 assists to Mihalik's 1. Crowley was even and Mihalik was plus-1 and both had 1 minor penalty.

    Prince George has clinched a playoff spot and Everett, who has a one point lead on Medicine Hat for first overall in the league, has clinched the U.S. Division title and is 14 points up on Vancouver for the Western Conference's top seed.

    Dallas is good.

    DAL-2
    TB-1 (OT)

    Johan Holmqvist stopped 26 of 28 shots faced in the overtime loss. Brad Richards had the only Lightning goal, shorthanded, off assists from Eric Perrin and Paul Ranger. Dallas absolutely dominated the first 20 minutes of play before the final 40 turned into a heavyweight street fight with both teams creating huge surges of pressure.

    First impressions of Shane O'Brien? Worth the price. His passing ability is outstanding and although he lacks scintilating acceleration, once he hits his stride he's amazingly fast for a man that size. If he gets indoctrinated into the Lightning system quickly and starts looking up for those long stretch passes and, at the same time, uses his speed to jump in and hold in pucks along the wall from the point in, he's going to start racking up assists.

    The Lightning's hard earned overtime point moves them 2 points ahead of Atlanta in the division and 5 points ahead of Carolina which dropped their game with Ottawa tonight 4-2.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    Dallas 10:59, Jere Lehtinen 22 (power play) (Jussi Jokinen, Mike Modano)
    Tampa Bay 19:41, Brad Richards 23 (shorthanded) (Eric Perrin, Paul Ranger)
