Not much to get excited about Saturday night. One streak ends, one continues - but not the right one.

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.
