The Cold Blooded Truth

Coach Tortorella went on a poigniant profanity laced tirade tonight after the game with the best of his vitriol aimed towards Eric Boulton and his cheap shot elbow on young Paul Ranger. [url=http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/Games/2005/10/20/1271536-ap.html]"The . . . guy should be playing in the . . . East Coast Hockey League, but instead he takes out a . . . NHLer," Tortorella said. "He'll be suspended, but who . . . cares? No one wants to see him on the ice anyway."[/url] Eric Boulton may have gotten away with his disgusting act of cowardice tonight by the grace of the officials ushering him out of the building quicker than Colonel Parker got Elvis off the stage in Vegas back-in-the-day, but sans a reprieve from Hartley in the form of a scratch or the league in the form of a well intentioned but ill timed suspension Boulton will have to face retribution Saturday October 29th. Circle it on your calendar Eric Boulton. And if I may [url=http://www.tampabaylightning.com/prdetail.cfm?pressreleaseID=1111&category=3]suggest to tool of Eric Boulton's execution.[/url] I'd tell Fritzy to put him in the morgue.

Game Night 10/20: Lightning at Thrashers

The Lightning torched the Thrashers young goaltenders as Nick Tarnasky and Evgeny Artyukhin made quiet NHL debuts each with just under 8 minutes of ice time a piece. Paul Ranger continued to settle into his job as the Lightning's #6 defenseman getting over 15 minutes of ice time and rating a +2 before receiving a vicious cheap shot elbow from a Thrasher forechecker. Vinny Lecavalier with a 4 point night. I hope a certain so-called editor from Hockey's Future enjoyed the game. [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020100.HTM]I know I did.[/url]

Artyukhin and Tarnkasy Called Up

The Springfield Falcons announced today that forwards Evgeny Artyukhin and Nick Tarnasky have been recalled by the Lightning. Both players will join the Lightning in Atlanta for Thursday night's game against the Thrashers.

Glukhov/But Score in Superleague

Although he has yet to score a goal this season for Khimik MO, Alexei Glukhov continues to build his reputation as one of the better young playmakers in Russia. Glukhov assisted on Khimik MO's lone goal today, a 1st period marker by Dimitry Kosmachev, as his club tied Salavat Yulayev 1-1. The assist is Glukhov's 7th of the season. That would've tied Anton But for the lead amongst Lightning prospects in Russia, but the left winger assisted on Alexei Vasiliyev's second period talley in a 3-2 loss to Kazan to record his 8th helper of the 2005-2006 campaign. For Togliatti, Vasily Koshechkin sat today as goaltender David Svoboda fell 2-1 to Omsk. Dimitry Kazionov did dress today and was held scoreless for Lada.
