    If it weren't for bad luck, the Lightning would have no luck, right now.


    Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 17 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    07:16 MIN Clutterbuck (6), Cullen (11), Havlat (10)(PP)
    11:31 TB St Louis (7), Clark (4), Stamkos (13)(PP)
    12:55 MIN Madden (3), Havlat (11), Zidlicky (5)
    19:30 MIN Miettinen (4), Brunette (6), Koivu (12)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    19:11 MIN Nystrom (1), unassisted(EN)

    Martin St. Louis was the game's third star.

    Despite outshooting Minnesota 38-18, the Lightning didn't generate as many chances as the lopsided shot totals might suggest. People thinking it's easy to absorb losing a player like Vincent Lecavalier out of your lineup, and especially off your power play, should take notice.

    Mattias Ritola had 1 shot in 10:57 and was 43% on draws.

    Johan Harju was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 9:10. He was soft a couple of times along the wall, weakly moving a puck blindly to a Minny point man on one play and meekly moving a puck along in the neutral zone on another. Other than blind passes to the middle of the ice, that's the quickest way I know of to get an NHL coach to send you back down.

    Dana Tyrell played a very quiet 8:56.

    Norfolk is finding goals harder to come by with 2/3 of their top line in Tampa Bay.


    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the loss. It's been a while since an Admirals netminder stopped at least 90% of the shots they faced in a game.

    First Period
    WOR DaSilva, (1) (Desjardins, Henderson), 14:34

    Second Period
    WOR Moore, (1) (Henderson, Desjardins), 13:27
    NOR Szczechura, (8) (Gudas, Labrie), 18:06

    Third Period
    WOR Moore, (2) (DaSilva, Henderson), 6:26

    Don't look now, but secret weapon/tough guy Pierre-Cedric Labrie has 3 assists in his last 5 contests. Good pickup by Julien BriseBois. He's got a bit of an awkward skating stride, but his speed is not too bad, and he hits everything that moves.

    Sweden 3 @ Russa 2
    Vasily Kosehchkin, Russia, ND, 19/19, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Tournament totals: 2 GP, 1-0-0, 1 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin spelled starter Mikhail Biryukov at 8:11 and was perfect the rest of the way, but Russia still fell 3-2 to Sweden. Ex-Lightning camper Niklas Persson had a pair of helpers in the match for the Swedes.

    In the day's other game, ex-Lightning netminder Karri Ramo made 24 stops as the Finns shut out the Czech Republic 5-0.

    Czech Republic 1 @ Russia 3
    Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, Win, 26/27, 1.00 GAA, .963 sv%
    Tournament totals: 3 GP, 2-0-0, 1 SO, 0.40 GAA, .986 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin finally allowed a goal in the Karjala Cup, but former NHL first rounder Alexander Perezhogin and Denis Grebeshkov each had goals to help lead Russia to a 3-1 win over the Czech Republic. Koshechkin stopped 70 of the 71 shots he faced in the tournament in reasserting his claim to being the best Russian-born goaltender not in the NHL after a disappointing start of the season for Severstal Cherepovets.

    Unfortunately for the Russians, Finland defeated Sweden 4-1 with a goal and an assist from ex-Lightning defenseman Janne Niskala to win the tournament of goal differential. The Russians, who were +2 in the tournament, ended up in second behind the Finns at +7, despite the fact the Russians defeated the Finns head-to-head, because the Swedes also finished 2-1-0 in the tournament, with a -1 differential.

    Season totals: 21 GP, 12-11-23, +1, 20 PIM

    Season totals: 20 GP, 11-7-18, -8, 34 PIM

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 21 GP, 15-10-25, -7, 6 PIM

    Connolly didn’t score, but was on the plus-side of even for the first time in 8 games. He converted his shootout attempt as the Cougars stole a victory in Vancouver. Connolly has 3 points in his last 7 games, but is still over a point-per-game pace.

    Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-3-1-1, 3.48 GAA, .880 sv%, 1 SO

    In the “bad news” department: Zador appears to have definitely lost his starter’s job and Panik hasn’t scored in 8 games (and 1 in his last 10). Kevin Bailie, who started the year as Zador’s backup, earned Second Star in the loss for the Gens.


    Seattle Thunderbirds 5 @ Regina Pats 4
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 19 GP, 10-7-17, -8, 34 PIM

    Fadden extended his point streak to 10 games, but the Everblades were doubled-up by the Road Warriors, 6-3. This wasn’t as close as the score appeared as Greenville had a 4-0 early in the third period. Fadden’s goal came on the power play. Florida is 7-6 on the year, 4 points behind Greenville for first in the South Division.
