    Season totals: 11 GP, 5-6-11, +4, 10 PIM

    Fargo got Mullin and four of his teammates back from Team USA and beat the Stampede. Fargo had fallen into last place in their conference without those five players.

    Season Totals: 21 GP, 0-2-2, -10, 40 PIM

    Beukeboom, the Soo’s captain, fell to minus-10 on the year, the worst mark on the club. He’s 19th on the club in points. The SSM press has been calling for the firing of Soo coach Denny Lambert, so this was a welcomed win.

    Belleville Bulls 2 @ Ottawa 67’s 5
    C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 23 GP, 12-12-24, -4, 31 PIM

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 22 GP, 17-10-27, -6, 6 PIM

    Connolly scored both his team’s goals, but the Cougars dropped a home game to last-place Kelowna. The Rockets are now just one point behind PG in the B.C. Division. This was Connolly’s first 2-goal game in nearly a month. He is 18th in the WHL in points.

    Saskatoon Blades 2 @ Kootenay Ice 1
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (tripping, delay of game)

    Janus came up big for Florida, stopping 40 shots and coming within 7 minutes of a shutout over Toledo. Despite the lopsided score, the shot total was 41-29 for Toledo. With his three points tonight, Fadden took over the league’s scoring lead by one point. Hutchings also got in the act, notching a goal and assist for his first points in 5 games.

    Norfolk makes a big time statement.


    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the win.

    First Period
    WBS Wallace, (7) (Sterling, Hutchinson), 5:39 (PP)
    NOR Durno, (5) (Fornataro), 11:43

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (6) (Vernace, Berry), 0:46
    NOR Jones, (7) (Quick, Milam), 12:27

    Third Period
    NOR Berry, (3) (Jones, Gudas), 19:19 (EN)

    Blair Jones, Desjardins, and Chris Durno were the game's three stars.

    Blair Jones' stat line for the season is becoming borderline ridiculous. The fourth year pro now has 7-9-16 in 12 games with a +7 rating. It's been a very different Blair Jones this season. Last year, after being sent down, his production went in the toilet, just as it did in past seasons. But Jones seems to be working even harder after being sent down this time.

    Kevin Quick now has 7 assists in his first 14 games this season and a +7 rating. His AHL career high in points was 9 points in 49 games in 2008-2009. I'm legitimately interested in seeing if Quick continues to improve and starts to knock on the door for an NHL cup of coffee in the second half of this season, because I really believe he's a perfect fit, stylistically, for what Guy Boucher is trying to do in Tampa Bay. Radko Gudas is another guy who, after my trip to Norfolk, I think could really fit what Boucher is doing a year or two down the road. He got his fourth assist tonight in this, his rookie campaign and he's a really nice +8. The guy was a big plus player in junior too, you'll recall, with a +45 in Everett last year.

    There's just so many players down in Norfolk legitimately knocking on the door for the NHL, and another wave of guys like Quick and Gudas potentially coming in behind them. It's taken over four seasons, between that last year in Springfield when the 2005 draftees like Jones came in and the three subsequent years in Norfolk, to get to this point, but the future is finally here, and it's exciting times.

    Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Quebec Remparts 6
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-6-8, +5, 16 PIM

    Patrick Roy’s Remparts scored the game’s final four goals for a comeback win over Gatineau. Janosik had 35 points in 63 games last year, plus 7 in 10 playoff games (5 goals), but is off to a quiet start this season with 8 in 22.


    Team WHL 2 vs. Team Russia 5
    RW Brett Connolly, WHL: 1-0-1, 0 PIM

    Russia finish the six-game Canada-Russia Subway Superseries with a 4-1-1 record versus the CHL for their first series win in the eight-year history of the event. They had won just two games in the series – in 2004 and ’07 – prior to this year. Lightning prospect Brett Connolly, playing in front of his home crowd, scored for the WHL. At that time, however, the Dub was already down 4-0 in the third period. Calvin Pickard (Avalanche) of the Seattle Thunderbirds stopped 19 of 23 shots in a losing cause for Team WHL.

    Maybe the craziest game I've ever seen.


    Dan Ellis allowed 4 goals on 10 shots before giving way to Mike Smith, who allowed 3 goals on 22 shots to get the win in relief.

    First Period
    04:21 PHI Nodl (4), Zherdev (1), Richards (12)
    05:03 PHI Zherdev (6), Carle (5), Richards (13)
    08:20 TB Stamkos (17), St Louis (15), Ellis (1)(PP)
    08:36 TB Hall (3), Hedman (7), Bergenheim (5)
    09:51 PHI Carter (9), O'Donnell (2), Giroux (12)
    13:59 TB Malone (3), St Louis (16), Stamkos (15)(PP)
    15:34 PHI Hartnell (7), Coburn (5), Carle (6)
    18:04 PHI Briere (10), Hartnell (7), O'Donnell (3)
    18:18 TB Clark (4), Moore (3), Hedman (8)

    Second Period
    04:11 TB Stamkos (18), St Louis (17), Lundin (5)
    04:59 PHI Zherdev (7), Powe (4), Pronger (7)
    09:27 PHI Meszaros (1), van Riemsdyk (5), Betts (4)
    09:41 TB Downie (3), St Louis (18), Stamkos (16)
    18:59 TB Stamkos (19), Purcell (8), St Louis (19)(PP)

    Third Period
    05:19 TB Thompson (3), Tyrell (2), Bergenheim (6)

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and second stars.

    What'd we see tonight? 1.) 15 goals? Check. 2.) A hat trick for #91 on just three amazing shots? Three shots. Three kills. Check. 3.) Brett Clark scoring a goal by shooting it THROUGH the net? Check. 4.) Matt Roy darned near putting a guy in the hospital? Check. 5.)And the biggest shocker of all: in a game with 15 goals your winner is scored by... Nate Thompson? Nate bleeping Thompson!?

    Mind you, there were a few things this game could have used to spice it up a little more: 1.) Mike Smith scoring an empty net goal and then doing snow angels in his crease to celebrate. 2.) Creating a timewarp where ex-Lightning player Kurtis Foster breaks a pane of glass and/or Evgeny Artyukhin puts a player through the glass. 3.) Steve Downie inciting a riot/bench clearer that ends with the stands being set on fire. 4.) For no good reason, Rudy Poeschek and Paul Laus happening to be in attendance and getting in a Pier 6 brawl at the nacho stand. 5.) A live penguin sliding out onto the ice and halting play. Baseball has squirrels and birds. I feel hockey should have the occassional stray penguin halting play. 6.) I like this one the best. Coach Fleming hitting Hulk Hogan with a steel chair while the ref isn't looking so Guy Boucher can get the 1-2-3 at center ice and win the championship belt. Just some suggestions to Gary Bettman and Lightning management on how to improve on the already unbelievable product we saw tonight.

    Johan Harju was -2 in 4:45. You couldn't swing a cat without hitting a minus in this game tonight.

    Mathieu Roy was -1 with a hit that almost put Darroll Powe in traction in 4:39.

    Dana Tyrell had a helper on the game winner and 2 shots and 2 blocked shots in 11:39. Andrej Meszaros is a dead man the next time the Lightning play the Flyers for trying to take out Tyrell's knees in the third period, especially considering Tyrell had major knee surgery less than 2 years ago.

    Trail Smoke Eaters 3 @ Penticton Vees 6
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-2-2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 23 GP, 9-14-23, 8 PIM

    O’Donnell earned Second Star for the second straight game and now has 5 points in 2 games since playing for Canada West at the WJACs. After a slow start, he’s up to a point-per-game pace for the Vees.


    Belleville Bulls 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 8
    C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-1-1, -2, 2 PIM (holding stick)
    Season totals: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -2, 31 PIM
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play.
    Season totals: 18 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 2 PIM

    Panik is still more than a point-per-gamer, even though he has “just” 7 points in his last 12 games. Schemitsch missed his third game due to an “upper body injury.” He’s listed as day-to-day. Belleville had leads of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 in this game before the Attack exploded for a snowman.


    Team WHL 6 vs. Team Russia 7 (SO)
    RW Carter Ashton, WHL: 1-0-1, 2 PIM (slashing)

    The WHL scored the game’s first 3 goals, but allowed its last 3 and eventually lost in a shootout. Russia is now 3-2 in the Canada-Russia Subway Super Series after sweeping the Q and being swept in Ontario. Omsk’s Sergei Kalinin (1+2, undrafted) was player of the game for Russia, while Prince Albert’s Brandon Herrod (1+0, undrafted) won the WHL’s award. Lightning prospect Brett Connolly will serve as an alternate captain for the WHL in their final game against Russia in Connolly’s hometown of Prince George on Thursday. He didn’t play in Wednesday’s game in Kamloops. Ashton, who scored the game's first goal in Wednesday's game, will not play in Prince George.
