Tampa, FL. -- The expected transfer of RW Mattias Ritola to AHL Norfolk will reduce the number of forwards on the Lightning roster to 13. That means coach Guy Boucher will have to scratch only one each game instead of two.

"Having one less forward," Boucher said, "makes me sleep more at night."

He's still not sleeping easy.

Corvallis, OR. -- There were chances that weren’t exploited and opportunities passed unseized. At least, that’s how the Beavers saw it.

Then there was No. 4 Stanford gradually pushing Oregon State onto its heels in front of an announced crowd of 42,835 at Reser Stadium.

The Cardinal turned a 17-13 third-quarter lead into a 38-13 victory with a relentless pursuit of perfection and a running game that is every bit as good as its hyped Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback.

Andrew Luck passed for 206 yards and three TDs, rushed for another 28 and Stanford rolled up 507 yards in total offense on the Beavers (2-6).
