    It hurts on so many levels.

    TB-1 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson stopped 29 of 30 shots before allowing 1 of 2 shooters to convert for the shootout loss.

    First Period
    12:30 TB Bergenheim (13), St Louis (52), Stamkos (38)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    14:28 WSH Semin (24), Wideman (25), Ovechkin (44)


    WSH- Ovechkin
    TB- NONE

    Roloson was the game's third star.

    The Lightning had this game won twice, only to have it snatched away from them. The first was on what was really a lucky stick save by Brayden Holtby reaching back on a Simon Gagne bid at an open net. The second was a disallowed goal by Vincent Lecavalier that was absolute baloney. I've seen teams get away with a lot worse than the contact Martin St. Louis made with his skate after being tripped through the crease. So, it would be easy to feel like the Lightning were robbed, but the refs didn't make the Lightning go out with a whimper in overtime and the shootout. It was a weak effort to close a game where the team, in general, really rose to the occasion. The Devils, Bruins, and this game were really unfortunate. This team could very easily have taken all 6 possible points in those games, rather than just 1.

    The Lightning are 2 points back of Washington in the division now with 1 game in hand. This tough bit of schedule ends with the Blackhawks, who are white hot, before the opposition gets a little easier (on paper).

    Mattias Ritola played 4:58.

    Blair Jones played 6:20 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot.

    The young guys simply weren't going to play much in a game of this magnitude.

    Fargo Force 2 @ Team USA 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 41 GP, 18-29-47, +25, 24 PIM

    Mullin was scoreless for the second straight game, but the Force got the win against the USA development team. At 60 points, Fargo is tied for third in the Western Conference with Sioux Falls, who has a game in hand on Fargo. The Force is one point out of second and five points out of first, but the teams in front of them, Omaha and Dubuque, have games in hand on Fargo. The Force have 11 games left in the season.


    Montreal Juniors 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 3 (SO)
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 53 GP, 11-27-38, +23, 28 PIM

    Landry did not participate in the shootout, which was won 3-2 by the Foreurs. The Juniors have a four point lead on Drummondville for first in the TELUS West Division with five games to go.


    Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 4 (SO)
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He is expected to return this week. Guelph has clinched a playoff spot and is tied with London for seventh. The key will be to avoid top-seeded Owen Sound or Kitchener in the first round. The Storm has five games left.


    Tri-City Americans 5 @ Vancouver Giants 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 2-1-3, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    With Tri-City: 25 GP, 13-21-34, +5, 43 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 54 GP, 29-32-61, -7, 87 PIM

    Ashton is now within one goal of his career high for a season, set two years ago with Lethbridge in 70 games. He has already set career highs for assists and points. Sunday night Ashton scored once in the first period and again on the power play late in the third to give the Ams a big win in one of the WHL’s toughest barns. TC is clinched a playoff spot and currently sit in fourth in the West, comfortably ahead of Vancouver in fifth and well behind Spokane in third. TC has eight games left.

    Admirals get Daug'ed out.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals on 36 shots for the loss. It's better than the 7 goals he allowed in his first start of the season, at least.

    First Period
    BNG Sweetland, (4) (Benoit, Hoffman), 8:15 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG Daugavins, (14) (Gryba, Locke), 1:01

    Third Period
    BNG Daugavins, (15) (O'Brien, Wick), 4:10
    NOR Szczechura, (14) (Fornataro, Pouliot), 10:12 (PP)
    BNG Greening, (14) (Locke, Benoit), 15:45

    Norfolk has 2 more 3-games-in-3-nights sets this season, so unless Cedrick Desjardins comes back from injury, Norfolk probably has a couple of more starts left for Janus.

    5th place Binghamton closes to within 2 points of the Admirals and they hold 1 game in hand in the East Division playoff race. Norfolk also lost ground to Charlotte, which beat Manchester today. The team is now 3 points back of the Checkers with 2 games in hand. In the crossover, Norfolk holds a 7 point lead on Worcester.

    17 games remain in the regular season. Norfolk draws Binghamton again at The Scope on Wednesday and again on Friday.

    Pretty ugly first 40 minutes.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 23 shots tonight. He was as off as most of the rest of the team tonight.

    First Period
    05:27 MTL Gill (2), Gionta (12), Plekanec (30)
    08:41 MTL Desharnais (8), Kostitsyn (21)(PP)

    Second Period
    01:25 TB Moore (12), Kubina (19), Purcell (26)(PP)
    14:05 MTL Pacioretty (13), Plekanec (31), Subban (22)(PP)

    Third Period
    01:18 MTL Pacioretty (14), Gomez (25)
    14:07 TB Lecavalier (16), Moore (12), Purcell (27)

    Dominic Moore was outstanding. Sean Bergenheim was outstanding. Most of the rest you could load in a cannon and shoot to the moon for the way they played for the first 2 periods tonight. The silver lining was a well played third period where they outshot Montreal 15-5, but it shouldn't take falling behind 3 goals to find an extra gear.

    Marc-Andre Bergeron needs to sit. Someone needs to pay for how this PP is playing right now.

    Mattias Ritola was -1 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 12:23. He's come back from Norfolk with a lot more tenacity in the physical game. I hope he keeps it up. With injuries, the more depth the Lightning have in the playoffs the better.

    Norfolk comes within an eyelash, just to see their hopes dashed.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Willsie, (24) , 4:26 (SH)
    HER Willsie, (25) (Aucoin, Greentree), 16:39

    Second Period
    NOR Fornataro, (16) (Labrie, Gudas), 4:24
    NOR Milam, (12) (Labrie, Pouliot), 19:46

    Third Period
    HER Perreault, (9) (Willsie, Souray), 17:08

    The good news is that Charlotte lost 2-0 to Worcester tonight, so the Admirals lost no ground on 3rd place. 2nd Hershey did pull 7 points ahead of Norfolk, though. Norfolk finishes their weekend tomorrow night in Binghamton, where the Senators were idle tonight.

    There are 18 games remaining in the regular season.

    From the final day of the Elitserien regular season:

    Needing a regulation win to avoid the relegation round and tied with HV 71 at 1-1, Sodertalje pulled Pontus Sjogren for the extra attacker with 1:18 left in regulation allowing Johan Davidson to score the game winning goal with 7 seconds left into an empty net. Sodertalje and MODO will go into the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation round. MODO fell 3-2 to AIK, which clinched the final spot in the Elitserien playoffs.
