Wilcox (pictured) earned his second straight First Star award by stopping 30 shots in a close road win in Omaha. He made 37 saves last Saturday to defeat Waterloo, 3-2. The Storm are within three points of Des Moines for sixth in the Western Conference, but Des Moines has four games in hand.

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 44 GP, 17-36-53, +11, 38 PIM

London shook off a blowout loss at home to Kitchener earlier in the week by defeating Windsor handily on Friday night. Namestnikov’s goal-less streak reached 12 games. He had a 13-game goal-less drought last year, which was the longest of his short OHL career thus far. Namestnikov has 13 assists over his last 12 games, but only one in his last three contests. Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored his 35th goal of the season on Friday. His 35 goals rank second in the league behind Kings second rounder Tyler Toffoli of the Ottawa 67’s.

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.

Gatineau captain Adam Janosik said after Friday’s loss that the Olympiques needed to play with more energy, and the team responded by taking a 3-0 lead on Shawinigan and holding on for a 4-2 win. Janosik was involved in a line brawl with just over 30 seconds left in the game.

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.

Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

Tri-City lost their second consecutive game to Fargo in as many days. After taking the loss in an 8-1 thrashing Friday night, Wilcox was on the bench Saturday. The Storm are alone in the Western Conference cellar with 22 points. They have the third fewest points in the league.

London Knights 5 @ Saginaw Spirit 4 (SO)

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-2-2 +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 38 GP, 17-32-49, +14, 36 PIM
