Outstanding night for Ryan Craig... TB-6 DAL-3 Craig led the way with a short side wrist shot goal and an assist. Sean Burke stopped 25 of 28 for the win. Craig played 13:28 and was +1 in the game with 2 shots on goal. Evgeny Artyukhin added an assist and was +1 in 9:36 of ice time with 1 shot and 5 hits. Norm Milley was -1 in 6:22 with 1 shot on goal. And, in a major milestone game, Paul Ranger led all Lightning rookies with 17:03 of ice time and was +1. Tonight was Paul Ranger's 41st NHL game, graduating him by Bolt Prospects criteria from prospect status. Congratulations to Paul Ranger, the first of the Lightning's class of 2005-2006. He won't be the last. Evgeny Artyukhin played his 39th game tonight and will also graduate within the next week.

I decided to pick up the B2 feed of this game to see how the Falcons do tonight after the big shake up. Tonight's scratches: Darren Reid (leg), Steve McLaren (undisclosed), Jay Rosehill (coach's decision) and Andre Deveaux (coach's decision). Brian Eklund will get the start in net tonight.

Vasily Koshechkin allowed three goals before being pulled prior to an empty net goal as Dynamo defeated Togliatti 4-2. Koshechkin is now 14-10-4 on the season.

Karri Ramo seems to have regained the top spot for HPK, that's the good news. The bad news is that today, in the second of back-to-back starts, Ramo fell to 5-5-3 as HIFK scored 2 third period goals to defeat HPK 3-2. Ramo stopped 25 of 28 in the loss.

Lightning prospect RW/C Chris Lawrence [url=http://www.ontariohockeyleague.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=11954]scored a hat trick tonight, including the overtime game winning goal, in a wild 7-6 victory over Brampton.[/url] Since being traded to Missisauga from Sault Ste Marie a month ago, Lawrence has 8 goals and 15 points in 14 games. Last season he had just 11 goals [i]all season[/i]. Lawrence, who was selected by the Lightning in the 3rd round of last summer's draft, has received criticism for much of his junior career for lack of intensity and failure to live up to his potential. Perhaps, under the tutledge of head coach Gred Gilbert, Lawrence is finally starting to break through.
