Michal Sersen had a helper in Bratislava's 6-3 win over Kezmarok.
Anton But had 1 assist in three games helping Russia (2-1-0) win the Finnish leg of the Euro Tour, the Karjala Cup. But's helper came on the only goal in Russia's 1-0 tournament opening win against Sweden. The veteran winger also scored to cap off a 1-0 shootout victory in the final match of the tournament against the Czech Republic. But also had 2 penalty minutes and was +1 in the tournament.
Also appearing in the tournament among Lightning prospects was Sweden's Johan Harju. "Big Joe" was scoreless with just 1 shot on goal in 3 games.
Fadden beats Tokarski, but Tokarski beats Fadden...
No.18 Harvard Crimson 1 @ Union Dutchmen 3 (ECAC)
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM (interference, tripping), 4 SOG
Season totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, E, 12 PIM
Killorn scored his first official collegiate goal on the power play for the Crimson, but it wasnâ€™t enough as Union broke a 0-6-1 streak against Harvard for the win. Killorn also scored a shorthanded goal late in the third, but the goal was waived off as the refs determined a Crimson player made contact with the Union goalie before the puck went in. According to a USCHO recap, video appeared to show the puck was by Corey Milan before he was interfered with, but the refs did not overturn it. Harvard coach Ted Donato â€œdisagreedâ€ with the call and was ejected for his protest.

Can you believe there was a time when people were trying to run Jussi Jokinen out of town?
Mike Smith was excellent, allowing just 1 goal on 36 shots for the win. I thought Barry Melrose might give Smith a couple of nights off after the frustration he showed late in the Rangers game, but he threw Smith right back in and the young netminder responded.
17:20 PHI Briere (4), (Gagne, Richards)(PP)
07:58 TB Jokinen (5), (Recchi, Roberts)
13:35 TB Prospal (3), (Lecavalier, St. Louis)
The best free agent signing of the offseason by the Lightning? Mark Recchi at $1.25M? Don't look now, but the old man has 8 points in 13 games so far this season.
Steven Stamkos had 1 shot, 1 hit, and was 44% on draws in 9:39.
