NHL Game Night: 3-12-10 Lightning at Capitals

The patient has a pulse.

TB-3
WSH-2

Antero Niittymaki allowed 2 goals on 30 shots for the victory. It's amazing what a difference goaltending makes, isn't it?

First Period
WSH 16:54, Fleischmann 20 (Ovechkin, Knuble)(PP)
TB 19:11, Bochenski 2 (Fedoruk, Lundin)

Second Period
TB 11:30, Walker 2 (Veilleux, Thompson)
TB 15:12, Lecavalier 19 (Walker, Purcell)

Third Period
WSH 11:09, Laich 21 (Green, Ovechkin)(PP)

Strange to see the rare game where the Lightning don't get a goal from the power play or #91, and it happens to be a big win.

Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 1 hit in 11:06. He was also 33% on draws.

KHL Playoff Game Day: 3-12-10

Eastern Conference
(1)Yulaev 4 @ (8)Ekaterinburg 1
Yulaev Leads the Series 2-0
Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM

I'd be amazed if Ekaterinburg isn't swept. Juggernaut top seed Yulaev has gotten 9 goals from 9 different players in the first couple of games of their opening round series to stake themselves to a 2-0 series lead over Ekaterinburg. Denis Kazionov played 10:12 in the match.

(2)Magnitogorsk 3 @ (7)Chelyabinsk 1
Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 2-0
Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 27/28, 1.01 GAA, .964 sv%
Season totals: 49 GP, 25-16-8, 8 SO, 1.96 GAA, .927 sv%
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0, 0 SO, 1.51 GAA, .954 sv%

Vasily Koshechkin has been a brick wall in each of the first two games of this playoff series, sporting a gaudy .954 sv% thus far.

(3)Kazan 4 @ (6)Astana 2
Kazan Leads the Series 2-0
Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM, 6 SOG
Season totals: 52 GP, 18-9-27, +7, 18 PIM
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM

Kazan looks to be in good shape to make the second round, as they beat Astana 4-2 in Game Two. Former NHLer Niko Kapanen had his 3rd goal of the playoffs for Ak Bars in the match.

(4)Nizhnekamsk 6 @ (5)Omsk 2
Nizhnekamsk Leads the Series 2-0
Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 17/21, 6.09 GAA, .810 sv%
Season totals: 44 GP, 21-17-4, 4 SO, 2.11 GAA, .913 sv%
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-2, 0 SO, 3.65 GAA, .860 sv%

Things are looking bad for Omsk. Karri Ramo was pulled in the second period of their 6-2 Game Two loss to Nizhnekamsk, putting the team down 2-0 in the series. Former Lightning first round pick Alex Svitov had a goal and former NHLer Jaromir Jagr had 1 goal and 1 assist in the match for Omsk.

Tomorrow the Eastern Conference plays round three.

CHL Game Night: 3-11-10

QMJHL

PEI Rocket 1 @ Moncton Wildcats 3
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 63 GP, 15-43-58, +38, 70 PIM

Barberio has six points in his last six games after opening the game’s scoring with an unassisted goal. His goal tied his career high for goals in a season at 15, set last year in 66 games. His point total is 12 more than his previous career high, set two seasons ago in 70 games. Moncton, who is tied with Drummondville for the league’s second-best overall record behind St. John, will play Cape Breton in the first round of the playoffs.

OHL

Brampton Battalion 3 @ Barrie Colts 7
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-3-4, +4, 2 PIM (tripping), *First Star*
Season Totals: 66 GP, 46-33-79, +42, 56 PIM

This was Hutchings’ (pictured) seventh game this season in which he’s scored at least three points. He has five three-point games, one four-point game (last night), and a five-pointer. He moved into fourth in the league in plus/minus with the plus-4 night. Hutchings is within one assist of his previous career high in that category, set last season in 63 games. His goal total this year is 12 better than his previous best. Unofficially, this was his ninth First Star award of the season. Barrie has clinched the league’s best record and will play Niagara, Sudbury, or Oshawa in the first round.

Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Peterborough Petes 4
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (hooking), *Third Star*
Season Totals: 49 GP, 7-20-27, -5, 20 PIM
With Sudbury: 27 GP, 4-13-17, -10, 14 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Sointu earning the Wolves’ lone game star on the road is impressive, even if the result for Sudbury was not. The Wolves’ loss, combined with a Niagara shootout loss, means Niagara clinches a playoff spot and Sudbury and Oshawa are the lone teams in the league who haven’t clinched yet still with a chance at going to the postseason. Sudbury is in eighth, three points up on the Gens, with each team having two games remaining.

NHL Game Night: 3-11-10 Lightning at Maple Leafs

The season is officially on life support.

TB-3
TOR-4 (OT)

Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 38 shots for the overtime loss. My kingdom for a netminder who could manage to play 60 minutes and stop at least 90% of the pucks he faces.

First Period
TB 18:17, Stamkos 42 (Foster, Lecavalier)(PP)

Second Period
TOR 9:29, Stalberg 4 (Caputi, Schenn)
TOR 16:17, Stalberg 5 (Caputi, Grabovski)
TB 16:41, Foster 8 (Stamkos, St. Louis)

Third Period
TOR 3:37, Bozak 5 (Kessel, Kulemin)
TB 5:00, Downie 17 (Lundin, St. Louis)

Overtime
TOR 3:33, Kessel 23 (Bozak)

The Lightning did pick up a point. But, it's an ominous sign when you can't beat the worst team in the conference on a night where you know you absolutely know you must have the two points. The scary thing is that, with Carolina getting so hot, there's even a chance the Lightning could finish in the division basement. The Lightning are tied with Atlanta at 66 points and both Florida and Carolina are just behind the team at 64 points. It's pretty bad right now.

To tell the truth, if I was Jeffrey Vinik, I don't think I'd spare anyone on the hockey operations side right now, other than maybe the amateur scouts. Whether you're on Team Brian or Team Rick, it doesn't matter. When you crash and burn this hard, everyone's job needs to be under scrutiny.

Paul Szczechura was -1 with 2 shots, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 11:29. He was also 36% on draws.

European Game Day: 3-11-10

KHL Playoffs (Russia)

3-11-10
Eastern Conference

(1)Yulaev 5 @ (8)Ekaterinurg 1
Yulaev Leads the Series 1-0
Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM, 6 SOG
Regular season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM
Playoff totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM

This probably won't end well for Ekaterinurg. Top seed Yulaev got goals from five different goal scorers as they blew out Ekaterinburg in Game One of their opening round playoff series. Lightning prospect Denis Kazionov played 14:54 in the match and led his team with 6 shots on goal. He also took three aggressive minor penalties for cross checking, charging, and roughing. It's a hat trick of minor penalty nastiness.

(2)Magnitogorsk 5 @ (7)Chelyabinsk 2
Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 1-0
Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 35/37, 2.00 GAA, .946 sv%
Season totals: 49 GP, 25-16-8, 8 SO, 1.96 GAA, .927 sv%
Playoff totals: 1 GP, 1-0, 0 SO, 2.00 GAA, .946 sv%

Magnitogorsk thumped Chelyabinsk 5-2 despite being outshot 37-33 in the contest. Former NHLers Sergei Fedorov and Stan Chistov each had 1 goal and 1 assist for Magnitogorsk in the victory.

(3)Kazan 4 @ (6)Astana 3 (OT)
Kazan Leads the Series 1-0
Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
Season totals: 52 GP, 18-9-27, +7, 18 PIM
Playoff totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM

Former NHLer Niko Kapanen had a pair of goals for Kazan as they defeated Astana in their opening game of the KHL playoffs. The elder Kazionov played 22:53 in the match for Kazan.

(4)Nizhnekamsk 2 @ (5)Omsk 0
Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 20/22, 2.02 GAA, .909 sv%
Season totals: 44 GP, 21-17-4, 4 SO, 2.11 GAA, .913 sv%
Playoff totals: 1 GP, 1-0. 0 SO, 2.02 GAA, .909 sv%

This much I know to be true: if your team can't score a goal for you, you can't win a playoff game as a goaltender.

Western Conference
(1)St. Petersburg 1 @ (8)Riga 3
Riga Leads the Series 2-0
Martins Karsums, Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +7, 16 PIM
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

I smell upset. Riga got 1 goal and 2 assists from Martin Kariya to help defeat St. Petersburg 3-1 and stake Riga to a 2-0 lead over the top seed in their opening round playoff series. Martins Karsums played 17:55 in the match.

(3)Dynamo Moscow 0 @ (6)Spartak Moscow
Spartak Leads the Series 2-0
Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Season totals: 55 GP, 4-14-18, -10, 38 PIM
Playoff totals: 2 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 8 PIM

Unfortunately, an upset may also be in the offing for Spartak over Dynamo Moscow as well. Former Flyers farm hand Stefan Rucizka assisted on the only goal of the match by Evgeny Lapenkov. Johan Harju played just 10:43 in the match and was 38% on draws.

Elitserien (Sweden)

Sodertalje 3 @ MODO 2
Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Win, 31/33, 2.00 GAA, .939 sv%
Season totals: 8 GP, 3-2-2, 0 SO, 2.60 GAA, .918 sv%

After sitting backup the past two games, Helenius was back in net for Sodertalje, backstopping them to a 3-2 win over MODO. Former NHLer Markus Naslund had 1 goal and 1 assist in the match for MODO. Sodertalje's regular season concludes on Saturday against Farjestads. They sit 11th in the 12 team league and will miss the playoffs.
