    That was tough to take. The Lightning seemed preoccupied with the mystique of this game from the start and weren't minding the details of their system. So, they looked tactically impotent for most of the first half of the hockey game. They were generating no zone time and few chances, and Detroit hopped out to a 2-0 lead by playing meat and potatoes hockey by getting pucks on net and get traffic and rebounds. Hedman made a good individual play to get it to 2-1 and the Lightning started to generate more pressure and chances and got it to 2-2 pretty quickly. At that point, hope abounded that the Lightning could at least get a point out of the night. But a questionable goaltender interference call on Lecavalier was converted by the Wings and then the bottom fell out. That's the Achilles heel of this Lightning club, in my mind. They can't seem to apply their system and maintain focus for 60 minutes. They're good enough to be a very good regular season team even though they only play their best 30-40 minutes at a time, but it seems unlikely you can survive very long in the playoffs with that lack of mental discipline to do the little things at top speed for a full 60 minutes, and sometimes more, every game.

    The good news is that it's February, and not April, and this is 1 game of 82 and not 1 game in a 7 game series. Yes, it's disappointing that the team wasn't as competitive against the Wings as they might've liked (I believe they tied 1-1 in Detroit in 2004 in the Cup season), but there's a lot of hockey left to play, and I suspect Steve Yzerman may well be on the lookout for a little more veteran leadership for this group now after what he witnessed tonight.

    Michael Vernace was -1 in 7:50 of ice time.

    No cigar.

    TB-3 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 29 shots before allowing 2 of 7 shooters to convert in the shootout loss.

    First Period
    12:42 PHI van Riemsdyk (13), Giroux (33), Carter (24)

    Third Period


    PHI- Richards, Timonen
    TB- Moore

    Dominic Moore and Victor Hedman were the game's first and third stars.

    I give a lot of credit for how the Lightning responded to falling behind by a pair of goals. They responded to adversity the exact opposite to how they did in the last Buffalo game, and that's a welcome sight to see.

    Good news/bad news: the Lightning fall 5 points back of the Flyers for 1st place in the conference, but they did move to 6 points ahead of Washington in the Southeast Division with 25 games left in the regular season.

    Johan Harju was +1 in 8:24.

    Michael Vernace had his first NHL assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:44.

    So close, and yet so far.


    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 20 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HER Collins, (4) (Beagle, Yeo), 14:12

    Second Period
    NOR Angelidis, (16) (Quick, Wright), 10:50
    HER Aucoin, (15) (Yeo, Greentree), 19:42

    Third Period

    Mike Angelidis was the game's third star.

    Norfolk outshot Hershey 30-20, but journeyman Todd Ford stopped 29 shots for the win.

    The tight loss drops Norfolk 7 points behind 2nd place Hershey. Fortunately for the Admirals, Charlotte lost to Albany tonight, so they remain 1 point back of 3rd place. However, they now find themselves in a spot they didn't want to be in, having squandered a game in hand and holding just a 3 point lead over 5th place Binghamton. That means Norfolk, which was robbed blind a season go, could find themselves praying the crossover delivers them to the playoffs this year. If Norfolk were to finish in 5th in the East Division, but have more points that the 4th place team in the Atlantic, they would crossover and likely draw either Manchester or Portland in the opening round. Currently, the Admirals hold a 7 point lead over Worcester, which is in 4th in the Atlantic. However, the Sharks do hold 3 games in hand.

    26 games remain in the regular season. Norfolk plays East Division 1st place team Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday at Scope.

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 2-0-2, +2, 4 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 10-11-21, +4, 32 PIM

    Penticton Vees 4 @ Prince George Spruce Kings 3 (OT)
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 55 GP, 25-42-67, 24 PIM

    The Vees gave up leads of 2-0 and 3-1, but still prevailed in overtime. Fresh off a hat trick Saturday night, O’Donnell was held off the scoresheet Sunday.


    Fargo Force 6 @ Muskegon Lumberjacks 4
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 15-26-41, +21, 20 PIM

    The Force scored the game’s final five goals to earn a road win.


    Guelph Storm 3 @ London Knights 2
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – knee)
    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 missed the game with a knee injury. No details have been released on the severity of the injury. He scored a goal in the third period of Saturday night’s game, so if he was hurt, it happened late – or they kept him out as a precaution. It’s all speculation at this point. Guelph put up 50 shots on London Sunday, scoring three times in the third period to erase a 2-0 deficit and steal a win.


    Tri-City Americans 6 @ Chilliwack Bruins 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    With Tri-City: 14 GP, 7-15-22, +2, 30 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 23-26-49, -10, 70 PIM

    Ashton broke a seven game goal-less drought and notched three points, helping TC to a big win in Chilliwack.

    Prince George Cougars 4 @ Red Deer Rebels 3
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season totals: 44 GP, 35-21-56, -6, 22 PIM

    Prince George saw their 2-1 third period lead turn into a 3-2 deficit before Connolly scored with just under two minutes left in the game to tie game, and again in overtime to win it for the Cougars. Connolly is up to eighth in the league in goals scored. Undersized center Tyler Johnson of Spokane (undrafted overager) leads with 43. Possible first overall pick in 2011, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, was scoreless Sunday against the Cougars for the Rebels.

    Russia 4 @ Czech Republic 2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, DNP
    Tournament totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Ex-Ducks draft pick Maxim Rybin had a pair of goals to help lead Russia to a 4-2 win over the Czech Republic. Lightning overage netminder Vasily Koshechkin did not dress for the game and did not play in the tournament. He was listed on Russia's tournament opening roster, but the goaltending duties for the LG Hockey Games were handled by Mikhail Biryukov of Yaroslavl and Alexei Volkov of Ekaterinburg.

    Elsewhere, Sweden defeated archrival Finland 3-2 in a shootout. Ex-Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo allowed 2 goals on 21 shots and 2 of 3 shooters to beat him for the shootout loss. Ex-Lightning camper Niklas Persson had an assist in the match for the Swedes while ex-Lightning defenseman Janne Niskala had an assist for the Finns.

    Sweden wins the LG Hockey Games with Russia finishing second, Finland in third, and the Czechs in last place. Swedish Elitserien matches begin again on Thursday, 2/17/11, and the Russian KHL gets back into action tomorrow, with a match between Chekhov and Novokuznetsk.
