    Rimouski wins again without Luca ... Barberio closing in on 40 points - a mark that was reached by Wright ... DeCoste scores before getting kicked out ... Can anyone stop Mitch Fadden?

    The Lightning steal the win.


    Karri Ramo stopped 40 of 43 shots for the win. He's not playing perfect hockey, but he is playing relaxed and making saves and keeping the Lightning in a position to compete. Tonight he won despite his club being outshot 43-18. His night in a nutshell: he gave up an awful rebound to Phil Kessel coming in off the wing with the game tied 3-3 and then made an athletic pad save in close to bail himself out. Flawless? No. But he's battling, and getting fair results.

    Bobby Taylor has talked recently on the broadcasts how defensemen who come up to the NHL sometimes find it easier because the forwards are always in the proper position on the breakout. I wonder if Ramo is looking more relaxed partially because he worries less about the team in front of him being in the proper position and not overcompensating for odd man rushes or back door plays.

    First Period
    01:38 BOS Kessel (25), (Savard, Lucic)
    04:44 TB Halpern (4), (Pettinger, Eminger)
    04:59 TB Hall (4), (Craig, Artyukhin)
    16:42 BOS Ference (1), (Savard, Wideman)(PP)

    Second Period
    10:00 TB Recchi (13), (Melichar, Koci)
    15:17 BOS Chara (14), (Kobasew, Ward)

    Third Period
    18:27 TB Prospal (15), (Halpern, St. Louis)(PP)

    It's nice to be able to take Jeff Halpern's picture off the milk carton, too.

    Matt Smaby had 4 hits and 5 blocked shots in 22:06. I'll bet you, dollars to donuts, 75% of the GM's who talk to Brian Lawton next week ahead of the deadline will try to scam him out of #32, and that Lawton will tell them, "No thanks."

    David Koci had his first NHL assist, was +1, and had 3 hits in 7:06. David Koci: The Secret Weapon.

    Keller is also getting in line for a recall.


    Riku Helenius stopped 24 of 26 shots for the win to even his record at 4-4-0 this season. He is now sitting on 1 shutout, a 2.18 GAA, and a .938 save percentage. What's the definition of a "good problem" to have? Karri Ramo and Mike McKenna acquitting themselves fairly well in the NHL while your young #1 starter is out injured, Helenius playing well in the AHL, and young Dustin Tokarski standing on his head in junior. That is a "good problem" to have.

    First Period
    BNG Mauldin, (12) (Regin, Hamel), 11:54
    BNG Mauldin, (13) (Fata, Regin), 17:56

    Second Period
    NOR Potulny, (8) (Brookbank, Jones), 1:27
    NOR Jones, (11) (Lundin, Konopka), 14:44 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Bochenski, (21) (Keller, Konopka), 3:43
    NOR Keller, (11) (Bochenski), 11:08

    Brandon Bochenski, Justin Keller, and Zenon Konopka were the game's three stars.

    I find it fascinating that, despite spotting him a significant head start, Keller has caught Blair Jones in the goal department. Jones still has a mammoth lead on Keller in assists and a better points per game number, but that may be a little inflated with power play assists with Blair playing the point position so much. This may be another really good problem for the Lightning organization to have if Keller and Jones continue to hit the scoresheet and, along with Brandon Segal, continue to push for late season recalls.

    For those who have been wondering, Vladimir Mihalik has been out with a nasty concussion.

    Norfolk climbs back to 3 games under .500. I think the season would be considered a success, given the rocky beginnings, if the team could climb to a winning record. It could be the foundation of a return to the playoffs next season with the Admirals getting an injection of a little more speed and skill with guys like Dana Tyrell coming on board.

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 41 shots in the loss. The Lightning were outshot 41-13 in the contest. Mercy.

    First Period
    08:30 CAR Staal (27), (Samsonov, Ruutu)

    Second Period
    01:53 TB Prospal (14), (Halpern)

    04:17 CAR Corvo (11), (Whitney, Staal)(PP)

    The Lightning's penalty kill has been abhorent as of late.

    Ty Wishart had 3 hits in 15:52, his highest amount of ice time this season.

    Steve Downie had 7 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 7:03.

    Matt Smaby had 2 penalty minutes and was -1 with 1 blocked shot in 23:20. A rare hitless night for the Minneapolis Sledgehammer.

    David Koci had 2 penalty minutes and 2 hits in 10:44.

    Is there a player hotter than Segal these days?


    Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Rosehill, (4) (Potulny, Quick), 4:35 (PP)

    Justin Keller, Brandon Bochenski, and Brandon Segal were the game's three stars. Other hopeful omens? Kevin Quick with a multi-point night.

    Norfolk moves back to 4 games under .500.
