    Quite simply the best game the Lightning have played this season.


    Mike Smith allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TB 6:54, Stamkos 16 (St Louis, Hedman)
    TB 19:24, Foster 2 (St Louis, Lecavalier)(PP)

    Second Period
    TB 8:05, Downie 3 (St Louis, Stamkos)(PP)
    TB 12:25, Szczechura 1 (Wright, Walker)

    Third Period
    TB 8:24, Foster 3 (Konopka)
    NYR 17:53, Callahan 4 (Anisimov, Staal)

    The Lightning have struggled to get shots on goal, and they finally got to 30 tonight (31) even with the Rangers blocking quite a few shots (14). If the Lightning can get up over 30 shots a game consistently, I believe they're going to start scoring 3-4 goals a night and they've got enough goaltending to make it stand up.

    More than just the shots and the goals, though, I thought the Lightning also physically handled the Rangers. Walker and Konopka both treated Brian Boyle like a speed bag with eyes and the Lightning outhit the Rangers 15-13.

    One other thing: Recent BoltProspects graduate Steve Downie and Kurtis Foster are really coming on lately. Downie, in particular, has an unbelievable knack for breaking up passes and clearing attempts along the wall. He's a lot like fellow little guy Martin St. Louis in that respect.

    Zenon Konopka had an assist and was +1 with 17 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 8:16. He was also 75% on draws, including the clean win that got him the helper on Foster's second goal. More than that, though, he landed a couple of nice bombs on Brian Boyle after Boyle made a dangerous hit on young Mr. Wright.

    Paul Szczechura got his nose bloodied and then responded with a 1 goal, +1 performance with 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and he was 69% on draws in 14:34. It was his best game of the season, and given the circumstances Coach Tocchet may want to take a stick and pop Chewey square in the nose before every game.

    James Wright had a helper and was +1 in 13:55.

    Victor Hedman had 1 assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 21:33. He's looked a little lost without Ohlund, but he played a strong, workmanlike game tonight.

    A huge overtime victory for a Norfolk team that needs to right the ship at home.

    NOR-4 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Hall, (3) (Tyrell, Smaby), 6:51
    ALB Micflikier, (2) (Hennigar), 7:59
    ALB Dodge, (6) (Pistilli, Angelidis), 16:39

    Second Period

    Third Period
    NOR Jones, (6) (Craig, Jackson), 5:48
    NOR Syroczynski, (4) (Graham), 7:41
    ALB Angelidis, (1) (Blanchard), 8:48

    NOR Wishart, (2) (Craig, Bochenski), 3:50

    Ty Wishart and Blair Jones were the game's first and second stars. Norfolk absolutely poured it on, outshooting Albany 46-30, including 17-6 in the Third Period. The win moves the Admirals back to 11-12-1, and into a three-way tie at 23 points for second place in the East Division with Bighamton and Albany. They're in a tough spot in that they've played a lot more games (24) than some other teams in the division like Wilkes-Barre. However, they've also got a very home-friendly stretch of games over the next month. Now is the time for the Ads to not only regroup, but start to make a bit of a move.

    Apologies for the lateness of this post, and apologies for the Lightning stubbing their toe for their first regulation loss at home of the year.
