    The stuff that dreams are made of.

    TB-2
    OTT-1 (OT)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed just 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. It's overshadowed by the heroics at the other end by Condon, but what Vasilevskiy did again tonight was make every situational save asked of him to get the Lightning their chance at the winner's circle.

    First Period
    3:05 TB Point (12), (Dotchin, Coburn)

    Second Period
    2:35 OTT Wingels (7), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    4:05 TB Hedman (14), (Palat)

    Victor Hedman was the game's second star.

    Facing near impossible odds in their quest for a playoff spot, the Lightning look like a locked in team that is already playing postseason hockey. Tonight's challenges: 1.) Get road points in a back to back after a tough game against the Rangers last night, 2.) Again play short of centermen with Vlad Namestnikov back on the shelf, 3.) Solve a netminder in Mike Condon who decided to lose his mind tonight with ten bell save after ten bell save. Amazingly, the team never showed the effects of #1 or #2 and eventually they got the one they needed to solve #3. Now, after all the heavy lifting is done, they find themselves tied for the 8th spot in the East after being left for dead a month ago. The dream lives for the Lightning, with a lot of heavy lifting still left to do.

    Luke Witkowski was -1 with 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 7:51.

    Greg McKegg had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 11:04. He was also 45% on 11 draws.

    Jake Dotchin had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 19:13.

    Gabriel Dumont had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 11:22.

    Yanni Gourde had 4 shots in 20:20. He's playing so well on this recall and he hasn't shown signs of hitting a wall yet.

    Adam Erne had 3 shots and 7 hits in 8:30.

    Season Totals: 26 GP, 15-9-0-1, 2.75 GAA, 0.906 SV%, 1 SO

    Back-to-back games against the best team in the league was a tall order for the surging K-Wings, and a chance to measure themselves against a team they will likely have to go through for a deep run in the Kelly Cup playoffs. Big props to the red hot Nic Riopel, who allowed just one Walleye goal on 31 shots Friday night, and enabled Kalamazoo to hold serve this weekend after Toledo put up 6 on the scoreboard Saturday night against Joel Martin. Riopel, winner of 11 in his last 12 starts, earned 2nd Star honors for his performance Friday. The K-Wings remain 3 points behind Quad Cities in the Central Division standings, looking to avoid a 1st round meeting against these Walleye. Speaking of Quad Cities, Kalamazoo travels to the Wireless Center in Moline, IL Wednesday for a big road game against the Mallards, before a home-and-home Friday and Saturday nights against the lowly Indy Fuel.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    It wasn’t the result he hoped for, but Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx liked his team’s effort.

    The Crunch — depleted by injuries and call-ups — tied the score early in the third period but fell to the St. John’s IceCaps, 3-2, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “You know what? Hat’s off to our players,” Groulx said. “It was a great effort. You’re losing Matt Peca last night. We’re losing (Cory) Conacher tonight — couldn’t play. We had a few more guys banged up and we came up with that great effort. It’s a well deserved point.”
