Game Night Results

  • 7 years 12 weeks ago

    Much like the Admirals, the Lightning fall one goal short in their comeback bid.


    Dan Ellis allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss. The simplistic thing to say is that goaltending was the difference when you lose to a team you outshot 45-26.

    First Period
    06:30 TB Bergenheim (3), Kubina (2)
    11:54 NSH Weber (1), Bouillon (2), O'Reilly (5)
    15:04 NSH Kostitsyn (1), Spaling (1), Smithson (1)

    Second Period

    15:01 TB St Louis (3), Stamkos (7), Hedman (6)
    15:58 TB Hall (1), Thompson (1), Lundin (2)

    Sean Bergenheim was the game's third star. The Lightning's power play also went an uncustomary 0-for-4.

    Dana Tyrell was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 12:08.

    Michael Vernace had 1 shot in 9:51.

    Johan Harju was named the game's third star. They outshot the Sharks 33-30, but were 0-for-7 on the power play and allowed a shorthanded and power play goal to the Sharks, so special teams were the difference.

    Western Michigan won their fourth straight as Witkowski picked up a helper in the third period.

  • 7 years 12 weeks ago

    Seven straight wins over Atlanta.


    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 30 shots for the win. That might have been the best Smitty has played since his concussion problems knocked him off track. That was encouraging. He moved well and he played an efficient style.

    First Period
    03:10 TB Clark (2), St Louis (5), Stamkos (6)(PP)
    16:05 TB Lecavalier (2), Bergenheim (2) 17:50
    TB Stamkos (6), Lecavalier (2), St Louis (6)(PP)

    Second Period
    08:07 ATL Slater (1), Ladd (5), Byfuglien (4)
    17:22 TB Stamkos (7), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    13:36 ATL Byfuglien (2), (unassisted)(PP)
    19:28 TB Stamkos (8), V. Hedman (5)(EN)

    Steven Stamkos and Vincent Lecavalier were the game's first and second stars.

    I thought the Lightning's effort level was outstanding, but I wouldn't say they were super-crisp. There's still another gear the Lightning haven't quite found yet in the early season, which should be a bit terrifying for the rest of the league. Their breakout and passing still needs a little work. There's too many soft passes, and still a lot of feeling out of new teammates. Once that part starts to click, the Lightning are going to be a mother to play against.

    Dana Tyrell had 2 penalty minutes and 2 shots in 11:09. He looks like he's getting a little more comfortable each game, and he even got a couple of PK shifts tonight. I also like that he's getting shots on goal. That first NHL goal will follow pretty soon.

    Norfolk's offense gets Pielmeier-ed.


    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 18 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SYR Deschamps, (2) (Palmieri, Festerling), 10:33 (PP)
    SYR Sbisa, (1) (Festerling, Green), 12:16 (PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    SYR Deschamps, (3) (Bonino, Sbisa), 8:25 (PP)

    Norfolk actually outshot Syracuse 38-18 but ex-Sharks pick Timo Pielmeier's goaltending and a couple of power play goals by Syracuse handed the Admirals their first loss.

    Norfolk rolls into Albany tomorrow night.

    Box score from TheAHL.
