A day after getting beat by Quebec 12-1, Gatineau was down 6-0 to the Volts before getting a late goal. Not a good weekend for the Olympiques.

The CHL’s main site didn’t list any Tuesday games on their front page so this slipped through the cracks. It’s a shame because we nearly missed Milan’s first goal of the year. He had 14 last season as a rookie with Moncton and hadn’t scored since last year’s playoffs. Janosik had two goals and an assist in the most productive (statistically) game of his QMJHL career.

Here is Janosik's first goal of the game:

With Victoriaville: 11 GP, 1-1-2, E, 12 PIM
With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

Milan played against his former defensive partner, Coyotes first rounder Brandon Gormley, who was traded from Moncton to Shawinigan after the World Junior tournament earlier this month. Gormley had an assist in the game for the Cataractes. Maligned Islanders draft pick Kirill Kabanov had two assists for Shawinigan.

Kitchener Rangers 8 @ London Knights 3

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 43 GP, 17-36-53, +12, 38 PIM

Kitchener embarrassed their division rivals and Namestnikov (pictured) on Wednesday night, 8-3. Namestnikov was stripped of the puck while on the power play early, leading to the first Rangers goal. Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith had two goals (33, 34) for London, who outshot Kitchener 48-35. Namestnikov’s minus-3 rating tied a career worst for the Lightning’s 2011 first rounder, set last January 28 in a 6-4 loss to Erie. London is now “only” eight points up on Kitchener for first in the Midwest Division.

Season Totals: 40 GP, 0-6-6, -13, 35 PIM
With Victoriaville: 7 GP, 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM
With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

The Tigres built a snowman on the scoreboard at home on Sunday with an 8-1 win over the Drakkar. Brandon Hynes (undrafted) had four goals and an assist for Victoriaville. He was a Lightning camper and member of the Bolts' Traverse City team in 2010. Milan’s scoreless and shotless streak reached five games.

London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season Totals: 39 GP, 17-33-50, +14, 38 PIM

Namestnikov extended his point streak to four games with an assist Sunday in the Soo against USA World Juniors goaltender Jack Campbell (Stars). London scored twice on the power play and twice shorthanded – including a penalty shot by Ryan Rupert (2012). Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and two assists for First Star honors. The story has been told many times, but once again the Bolts let Griffith go back to London after the south Florida rookie tournament and before Lightning training camp started. He was listed on the official Lightning camp roster. Griffith exploded this year and one London media member told me he is “the real deal.” If the Lightning are to get him in camp next year, they’ll have to draft him as Griffith will enter the NHL draft for a second straight year. He went undrafted in 2011. That won't happen again. Griffith is fourth in the league with 61 points (32 goals) in 42 games. Namestnikov is tied for 13th. Griffith is second in goals and his linemate, Namestnikov, is fifth in assists.

Sudbury Wolves 3 @ Oshawa Generals 2

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-11-11, +1, 20 PIM
With Oshawa: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

Schemitsch is still looking for his first point in an Oshawa uniform.
