Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 10 GP, 0-7-7, -2, 11 PIM
After notching at least an assist in all but two of his first eight games, Janosik is scoreless in his last two. The Drakkar are tops in the league with 20 points so far this season.
Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Chicoutimi Sagueneens 3
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 10 GP, 0-3-3, -6, 11 PIM
Milan broke a personal seven-game scoreless streak with two helpers Friday night, but it wasnâ€™t enough for Moncton to beat the Sags. Milan had a shorthanded assist on the Wildcatsâ€™ second goal, which cut the Sags lead to 3-2 with half a period to go, but Moncton couldnâ€™t complete the comeback.
Belleville Bulls 0 @ London Knights 4
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 12 GP, 6-6-12, +6, 14 PIM
Namestnikov maintained his point-per-game average with an assist Friday night in London against the Bulls. Lightning prospect camp participant Seth Griffith had a goal for London to extend his point streak to five games. He has 17 points (9 goals) in 12 games this year.
Not much to get excited about Saturday night. One streak ends, one continues - but not the right one.
Dubuque Fighting Saints 5 @ Green Bay Gamblers 2
G Adam Wilcox, GB: Did not play
Season Totals: 2-0-0, 2.50 GAA, .918 sv%, 0 SO
Correcting last nightâ€™s update, Wilcox made his second appearance of the season last night, stopping 31 of 33 shots in a win. He sat backup Saturday night.
Chicoutimi Sagueneens 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 0
Big nights for Adam Wilcox and Vladdy Namestnikov...
Saint John Sea Dogs 1 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (cross-checking), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-6-6, -1, 9 PIM
Another day, another assist for Janosik. Gatineau welcome Saint John's Jonathan Huberdeau back from the Florida Panthers by limiting him to one shot on goal, no points, and a -1 rating as the Olympiques beat the reigning Memorial Cup champs 5-1. Huberdeau was signed to an NHL contract by the Panthers just a few days ago. Zack Phillips, whom Bolt Prospects thought would be a candidate to be drafted by Tampa Bay last summer, was also held scoreless. Phillips, a Wild draft pick, has 10 points in seven games this season. He was taken 28th overall in the draft.
Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2 (OT)
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 11 PIM
Considering Milan played, he obviously wasnâ€™t suspended for his major penalty for checking to the head in Monctonâ€™s last game. Milan, who had 38 points last year in his rookie season, is off to a slow start statistically. Moncton leads the Maritimes Division with 15 points (7-6-1-0).
Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-5-5, -2, 7 PIM
Gatineau spotted the Huskies with a 2-0 lead before scoring five unanswered goals. Assistant captain Adam Janosik has at least an assist in all but two games this year.
Rimouski Oceanic 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 6
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 7 PIM (hooking, checking to the head), 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 9 PIM
Moncton won their second in a row, though Lightning prospect Daniel Milan was ejected with about a minute to go in the game after a check to the head. A suspension is possible. Coyotes prospect and 2010 first rounder Brandon Gormley, a defenseman, had a hat trick for Moncton.
Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1 @ London Knights 4
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 7 GP, 4-3-7, +2, 6 PIM
Namestnikovâ€™s three-game goal scoring streak was stopped, but London got a 4-1 win over the Soo despite being outshot 41-35. Former Lightning prospect Brock Beukeboom, who played with the Greyhounds last season before getting injured and later had his rights traded to the St. Louis Blues in the Eric Brewer deal, was traded by the Soo to Niagara recently. He has yet to play a game this season.

Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Halifax Mooseheads 7
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, -4, 0 PIM
Moncton has now given up 20 goals in its last three games, including seven in each of its last two contests. Not good for a defense with two NHL-contracted players in Milan and Phoenixâ€™s Brandon Gormley.
Gatineau Olympiques 6 @ Val-dâ€™Or Foreurs 4
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-4-4, -1, 5 PIM
Janosik had a power play assist as Gatineau built up a 5-0 lead by the end of the second period. Val-dâ€™Or, who beat the Olympiques Friday night, scored four times in the third before Gatineau added an empty netter.
Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 7
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM
Moncton finished their visit to northern Quebec 0-2 while being outscored 13-3. Not good. They play again on the road Wednesday in Halifax.
London Knights 6 @ Plymouth Whalers 3
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-3-5, +1, 2 PIM
Playing in his home state, Namestnikov scored his second of the year in the third period to help his Knights teammates to a 6-3 win over Plymouth. Seth Griffith, a member of the Lightning for the Coral Springs prospects tournament, had a goal and three assists for First Star honors. Griffith leads the Knights in scoring with four goals and nine points in four games.
Guelph Storm 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 3
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 6 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 4 PIM
Last yearâ€™s OHL champs have dropped two straight games this weekend and fell to .500 for the year at 3-3.
Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Val-dâ€™Or Foreurs 5
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 5 PIM
Janosikâ€™s power play assist gave him three helpers in three games. Gatineau was down 3-0 by the mid-way point of the game and had to play catch-up all night.
Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Quebec Remparts 5
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Milan and the Wildcats played on the same rink the Lightning practiced on earlier in the day. Patrick Royâ€™s Remparts skated to an easy 5-1 win Friday night. Milan had his first point of the season in his second game. Moncton was already down 5-0 at the time, unfortunately. The Lightning are in Quebec City to play the Canadiens Saturday night.
Sudbury Wolves 2 @ London Knights 8
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM
This is hard to understand. The Knights have scored eight goals in two of their three games this season, yet of those 16 goals, Namestnikov has only one assist toward the total. The good news for London is theyâ€™re getting it done without the first rounderâ€™s offensive production. Thereâ€™s enough talent around him that Namestnikov should have a big season. Finishing on the minus side of even in an 8-2 win is not going to help much. Second year player Ryan Rupert (2012) had a hatter for London.
Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Mississauga St. Michaelâ€™s Majors 5
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 4 PIM
Schemitsch had an assist for the second straight game, but his Owen Sound Attack fell in a rematch of last yearâ€™s OHL championship won by the Attack. The Majors, last yearâ€™s Memorial Cup hosts, got the better of Owen Sound in the Cup tournament and finished runner-up to St. John last May. Leafs 2011 first rounder Stuart Percy had two goals for the Majors.
Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 2
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Last Seasonâ€™s Totals: 68 GP, 14-24-38, -26, 76 PIM
Milan was plus-1 in the game, fresh off spending training camp with the Lightning. He was awarded for his good play at camp with an NHL contract that will kick in when he turns pro next season. Milan and Phoenix Coyote first rounder Brandon Gormley â€“ who was thought to be a likely choice for the Lightning with their 2010 first rounder â€“ both played for the first time in the game. Gormley had a goal. Shawinigan is the Memorial Cup hosts this season and is ranked No.7 in the country in the latest CHL MasterCard Top-10. Peter Sakaris (undrafted) had both goals for the Cataractes.
Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Barrie Colts 1 (SO)
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM
Schemitsch earned a power play assist on the game tying goal scored early in the third period to help the Attack to a 2-1 shootout win over the home side, Barrie. Schemitsch did not participate in the shootout. Schemitsch had 40 points as an OHL rookie two years ago, but due to injuries and a different role, fell to 20 points last season.
