Despite at one time holding a 3 goal lead today, the Lightning's prospect team at Traverse City dropped yet another 1 goal decision today to the Thrashers' prospects 6-5. [url=http://www.tboblogs.com/index.php/sports/related/C189/]According to the Trib's Erik Erlendsson[/url], [url=riku-helenius]Riku Helenius[/url] allowed 6 goals on 25 shots in the loss. The Lightning prospects' offense at least snapped out of their slumber today as [url=radek-smolenak]Radek Smolenak[/url] had 2 goals, [url=blair-jones]Blair Jones[/url] and [url=marek-kvapil]Marek Kvapil[/url] had 1 goal and 1 assist each, [url=dane-crowley]Dane Crowley[/url] had 3 assists, [url=justin-keller]Justin Keller[/url] had a shorthanded goal and [url=zbynek-hrdel]Zbynek Hrdel[/url] and tryout invitee David Desharnais also had helpers.

Erik Erlendsson of the Trib writes on his blog that the Lightning [url=http://www.tboblogs.com/index.php/sports/related/C189/]lost another nail biter tonight 2-1 to the Red Wings prospects.[/url] [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo[/url] stopped 25 of 27 shots faced but was unable to stop the Wings from scoring the game winner with less than five minutes to play in the final frame. The Lightning's lone goal was scored by tryout invitee Torrie Wheat on assists by [url=pj-atherton]PJ Atherton[/url] and Marek Bartanus. The Hockeyâ€™s Future recap singles out Ramo and invitees David Desharnais and Kelly Czuy for their good play. HF says Tampa only managed 19 shots on goal against the Wings, but did hit a post.
