Season totals: 36 GP, 2-4-6, -8, 41 PIM

AHL Game Night: 1-27-17 Crunch at Thunderbirds

Crunch hold of a furious rally... barely.


Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the victory.

First Period
14:37 SYR Conacher (7), (Vermin, Gourde)

Second Period
11:27 SYR Brodeur (2), (Morin, Ikonen)

Third Period
5:43 SYR Ikonen (2), (Conacher, Koekkoek)
11:21 SYR Gourde (15), (unassisted)(SH)
13:53 SPR Hawryluk (3), (Acolatse, Sutter)(PP)
15:08 SPR Rau (5), (Weegar, Berra)(PP)
18:28 SPR Sutter (4), (Acolatse, Rau)

Henri Ikonen and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Ikonen? I'll take unlikely heroes for $500, Alex.

When you have a 4-0 lead in the Third Period, you really shouldn't allow the opposition to get as close as the old false hope goal. Fortunately, with the win, Syracuse maintained position 1 point back of Albany for the division lead with a game in hand on the Devils.

UNO had a 2-0 lead on the Pioneers going into the second period, but Denver scored four goals on 21 shots in the second period alone and went on to a 5-3 win. Oldham has been getting spot starts, and on the road against a top-3 team was a big task for the freshman.

NHL Game Night: 1-26-17 Lightning at Panthers

Lightning waste inspired performance by young Vasilevskiy.


Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 37 shots for the OT loss. I feel sick for the kid, because he absolutely deserved the win tonight and had no chance on the two goals he allowed. The good news is that, with back-to-back quality starts, he's starting to answer some questions in the affirmative about his ability to be the starter. And, make no mistake about it, the mere fact he was given back-to-back starts is no coincidence. The Lightning are in full evaluation mode now with the season pretty much out of hand.

First Period
9:55 FLA Jokinen (5), (Trocheck, Yandle)(SH)
11:33 TB Kucherov (19), (Drouin, Killorn)(PP)

Second Period

Third Period

1:49 FLA Marchessault (14), (Yandle, Jokinen)(PP)

Vasilevskiy was the game's third star. Well deserved.

Prior to the game defenseman Nikita Nesterov was dealt to Montreal for a 23-year old minor league depth defenseman (Jonathan Racine) and a late round draft pick. Moving Nesterov should be viewed as the team giving up on a young defenseman whose anemic offensive production never really balanced out his defensive deficiencies, which simply weren't improving.

As for the game, the Lightning played a pretty emotionless, antiseptic game in the First Period. But, as the Panthers acted like the classless lumberjacks they always do, the intensity level came up and the team played a fairly even game with a reasonable work rate. Still, we're not seeing certain players like the Triplets play as well as you'd like to see them right now in this evaluation period. Tyler Johnson ultimately wore the goat horns for taking a penalty following a terrible turnover in OT. That's not good from one of the guys on this roster who I honestly believe is being scrutinized to determine his long term role (or lack thereof) in the organization.

Jake Dotchin had 4 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and 2 hits in 17:20. Mixed bag. I detected at least one bad turnover and his lack of foot speed and experience probably contributed to his two interference calls. That said, he did make some nice plays in all three zones, too. The issue I have with Dotchin is that, with his skating being what it is (and this probably goes with Witkowski, too), I have a hard time seeing him as more than a Band-aid. Can he be an NHL'er in a 6th/7th defenseman role? Perhaps. But, on an elite club like the Lightning should be?

Gabriel Dumont had 5 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 7:27. He may be small, but he sure did beat the stuffing out of McKegg tonight.
