NHL Game Night 10/10: Panthers at Lightning

3-0-0 is a great start. However, I was not impressed with the team's play tonight.

FLA-1
TB-2

Make no mistake about it, Johan Holmqvist stole the win tonight with a 30 saves on 31 shots effort that included multiple odd man rushes and breakaways. He got the win despite the Lightning being outshot 31-23 by an inferior opponent.

First Period
Tampa Bay 9:03, Chris Gratton 1 (shorthanded) (Mathieu Darche, Jason Ward)

Second Period
Florida 4:04, Ville Peltonen 1 (Olli Jokinen, Cory Murphy)
Tampa Bay 10:36, Chris Gratton 2 (power play) (Paul Ranger, Michel Ouellet)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Tuesday's Elitserien Scores

Johan Harju was scoreless as Lulea was shutout by HV 71 4-0.

Andreas Holmqvist was scoreless in Frolunda's 4-2 win over Mora.

Karlsson Still on the Shelf

Damian Crisdotero reports on his blog that forward Andreas Karlsson will not make it back for Wednesday's game against Florida. It was anticipated that Karlsson, suffering from an abdominal strain, might be back for the front end of the two game set against the Panthers but it does not appear to be in the cards.

Condolences to Admirals fans as it looks like Norfolk won't get Mathieu Darche back in time for their upcoming game this Friday against Bridgeport. Norfolk has three games in three nights this weekend, including a grudge match in Springfield on Sunday afternoon.

NCAA Exhibition 10/8: Quick Makes Michigan Debut

The NCAA exhibition season got underway this past weekend with two Lightning prospects in action.

Western Ontario 1 @ No.10 Michigan 6
D Kevin Quick, MICH: 0-0-0, +2, 2 SOG

Quick, a freshman, made his Michigan debut for the Wolverines and was involved in some scoring chances but did not register a point in the exhibition game. According to MGoBlue.com, Quick jumped into a play and took a drop pass from Michigan captain and Phoenix Coyote draft pick Kevin Porter, firing a one-timer blocker side on the UWO goaltender Brad Topping, who got a piece of the shot. Michigan held their Blue vs. White game on Saturday. Quick, who is wearing No.27, did not register a point and was even with a shot on goal in the intrasquad game for Team White, who lost 6-3.

Trois-Rivieres 0 @ U-Mass 6
D John Wessbecker, UMASS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM, +1

The University of Massachusetts opened their 2007-2008 season with an exhibition win over Trois-Rivieres. Wessbecker, a junior and former seventh round pick, is coming off a sophomore year in which he registered one point on a goal.
