    Exceeding expectations thus far.


    Dan Ellis stopped 23 shots for the shutout victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    15:59 TB Ritola (1), Jones (1), Malone (5)

    Third Period
    04:26 TB Hall (2), Thompson (3), Bergenheim (3)
    14:38 TB Stamkos (9), Downie (6), Jones (3)

    Dan Ellis and Steve Downie were the game's first and second stars.

    When the season started, I had the aggressive goal of 14 points for the first 10 games in my mind. The team finishes the first 10 game set ahead of schedule at 7-3-1 with 15 points. That's outstanding. The next 10 game set is fairly brutal, though, so I'll be happy with 10 points in the second 10 game set of the year. Let's see if the Lightning can beat expectations again.

    Mattias Ritola had his first NHL goal and was +1 with 2 shots in 8:06.

    Dana Tyrell played 13:38.

    Blair Jones had a helper and was +1 in 8:02. He was also 50% on 6 draws.

    Norfolk's weekend has the sour taste of a two point weekend that should have been a four point weekend.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 7 goals on 29 shots for the overtime loss. Rebound control was the culprit. With the exception of the last goal, he was making the first stop and his positioning wasn't bad. But, he was kicking rebounds up the slot and the Admirals defense was not clearing them out. I thought he played better than Desjardins did last night, but neither was acceptable, obviously.

    First Period
    POR Mancari, (7) (Byron), 3:27
    NOR Szczechura, (5) (Giliati, Mihalik), 5:36
    NOR Roy, (2) (Barberio, Szczechura), 13:27

    Second Period
    POR Whitmore, (4) (Turnbull), 2:01
    NOR Simek, (3) (Pouliot, Harju), 6:30
    NOR Fornataro, (3) (Szczechura, Wright), 13:47

    Third Period
    POR Whitmore, (5) (Crawford, Turnbull), 9:36
    NOR Wright, (3) (Szczechura, Fornataro), 10:03 (PP)
    POR Stuart, (3) (Brennan, Biega), 10:29
    NOR Harju, (5) (Simek, Pouliot), 11:28 (PP)
    POR Turnbull, (1) (Roloff, Whitmore), 12:59
    POR Schiestel, (2) (Roloff, Turnbull), 14:54

    POR Gragnani, (3) (Mancari, Biega), 1:05

    Paul Szczechura was the game's second star. Juraj Simek was, in my opinion, the best Admiral tonight. He showed excellent hand-eye coordination batting a puck out of air for his goal, and that line he has with Pouliot and Harju in one of the best in the league right now.

    Through two periods, the defense was much improved tonight. I don't know if that's a function of Mike Flanagan being back to run the defense after Steve Thomas did it last night, but they were better at taking care of details within five feet of their own blueline, with the exception of Portland's first goal. The last period was just the intersection of a team letting its foot off the gas once Harju scored on a semi-soft goal to make it 6-4 and some bad luck with rebounds going right onto Pirates' sticks. The biggest play of the game was the 2-on-1 goal Portland scored to make it 6-5, where Michael Vernace got completely lost. I'm not surprised he was -3 tonight. He's struggling with his positioning and the way he surrenders the blueline on the rush, they might need to start calling him Versailles.

    My revalation of the night was Stefano Giliati, who is a speedy little sparkplug who was either generating scoring chances or popping people all night long. He got his first point as an Admiral tonight, and I was impressed. I'm surprised they don't play him more.

    I liked the way rookies Mark Barberio and Radko Gudas played. Barberio ended up a team high +2 along with Mihalik, and although his skating is mediocre, he's outstanding at reading the play in the offensive end. He's a very crafty player. He has a ways to go, but I enjoyed what I saw. Gudas appeared in both games this weekend, and he was quiet for most of five periods of hockey, but he was very visible in the third period tonight. He and Wishart are the only two Admirals who routinely step up at their blueline and give a pop, but what surprised me about Radko was how he carried the puck offensively a couple of times. The skill set is there, and it's real. Like Barberio, he's a couple of years off, but there's something to work with there, and he and Mihalik make a decent little pairing. The reunification of Czechoslovakia going on with that pairing.

    It makes me puke that a goaltender as bad as Leggio managed to backdoor his way into two wins this weekend. That's annoying.

    I'll be leaving Norfolk tomorrow morning, but I just wanted to close by encouraging Lightning fans to make the trip if you're looking for a weekend trip. This is an entertaining team, with the highest scoring offense in the league, and this is a good town. I enjoy coming to Norfolk because it reminds me a lot of Tampa, and I think you'll feel the same way to if you come up here.

    Sodertalje 3 @ MODO 4 (OT)
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 6 GP, 0-5-0, 0 SO, 2.77 GAA, .879 sv%

    I'm beginning to think Riku Helenius is going to have to pull a Tonya Harding on Pontus Sjogren to ever get in a game again. Sjogren made 21 saves for the overtime loss against MODO. Ex-NHLer Byron Ritchie had two goals in the match for MODO.
