Karri Ramo allowed 6 goals on 34 shots in the loss, as he continues to blow a golden opportunity to earn a steady NHL paycheck.

Blair Jones now has 3 goals and 5 points in the last 4 games. I really think that Jones could fit well in Rick Tocchet's system. He's actually on pace to best last year's totals by roughly 10 points, which is pretty darn good considering he's gotten less ice time on a deeper Norfolk team this year.

14:54 TB Lecavalier (21), (Murphy, Recchi)(PP)
19:11 TB Prospal (11), (St. Louis, Lecavalier)
For Vincent Lecavalier, that's now 9 straight seasons of 20 or more goals. Len Barrie, Oren Koules, Brian Lawton; come closer to the monitor. If you trade #4, Lightning Nation burns the Forum down. Capice?!
Steve Downie had 1 assist, 2 penalty minutes, and was +1 with 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 8:19. Slick, slick play on the Stamkos goal. Might a Stamkos/Schenn/Downie line be a future staple in Tampa Bay?
David Koci was +1 with 1 hit in 4:33.
Kevin Quick was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 9:50.
Results from all three CHL leagues.
Cunti scores his 10th ... DeCoste earns first point for the Soo ... Tokarski faces fellow Team Canada goaltender Chet Pickard and comes away with another First Star.
