He is fourth in the league for goals and leads all Syracuse forwards for plus-minus rating with a plus-19. Panik is also tied for third on the Crunch for power play goals with six. He recorded an AHL-high 12-game point streak from November 2 through December 1 with 17 points. Panik has played in 107 career AHL games with Syracuse and the Norfolk Admirals, recording 40 goals and 76 points. Panik made his professional debut last season, appearing in 64 games with Norfolk and registering 19 goals and 41 points.

An extra day off may have been much needed for the slumping Tampa Bay Lightning, who suddenly are struggling to find the back of the net.
Their current skid began with a loss eight days ago to the New York Rangers, who hope to have defenseman Dan Girardi back for Sunday's rematch at Madison Square Garden.
Tampa Bay (6-4-0) averaged 5.3 goals...
For the second time this season, disappointment rained down from the rafters at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. In what can only be described as another less than inspiring performance, the Lightning completed the comeback but lost in a shootout at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens.

Winning in the National Hockey League is no easy feat; that being said, teams that fashion themselves as potential division champions should never lose four games in a row. With another loss earlier tonight against the New York Rangers, the Tampa Bay Lightning now find themselves sitting with a record of 6-5-0. After starting the season with so much promise, things have completely...

What was thought to be Morrow’s NHL debut last night, turned into just an insurance move for the Pens, as Pittsburgh didn’t dress him.
So far this year, Morrow has 10 points (2G, 8A) in 39 contests with the WBS Pens.
The Pens also signed some jobber named Chris Collins...
