D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 64 GP, 15-43-58, +37, 70 PIM

This was a preview of a QMJHL first round playoff series that Moncton hopes has a different result. That series begins Friday. Moncton will close out their season Sunday against the top-seeded St. John Sea Dogs on NHL Network.

OHL

Belleville Bulls 4 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 2
C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-2-3, E, 2 PIM (roughing), *Second Star*
Season Totals: 59 GP, 20-20-40, +4, 51 PIM
With Bulls: 26 GP, 11-11-22, -11, 32 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: Did not play.
Season Totals: 57 GP, 19-14-33, -19, 51 PIM
With Bulls: 44 GP, 17-13-30, -17, 31 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Panik (pictured) may not be headed to the OHL playoffs, but he’s certainly performing at a high level to finish the year and giving Tampa Bay something to think about. He hit 20 goals and 40 points on the season thanks to a three-point game Friday. Panik now has nine points in his last six games and five in his last two. DeCoste missed his fourth game due to a concussion.

Barrie Colts 4 @ Brampton Battalion 2
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 67 GP, 46-34-80, +43, 56 PIM

Hutchings tied his previous career high for assists in a season, set last year in 63 games. Barrie has one game remaining and the league's top seed sewn up.

Sudbury Wolves 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 3
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 50 GP, 8-20-28, -4, 22 PIM
With Sudbury: 28 GP, 5-13-18, -9, 16 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Sointu’s empty net goal provided the final piece to a playoff spot clinching win for the Wolves. Sudbury is tied with Niagara for seventh in the East, but Niagara has a game in hand.

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 4
G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 42 saves on 46 shots
Season Totals: 48 GP, 14-27-2-1, 4.06 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

The Gens needed a miracle to happen to get into the playoffs, starting with a win over Ottawa, but they blew a 3-1 lead entering the third period and will stay home during the playoff season. They were outshot 46-29 in the game, including 22-6 in the final period.

WHL

Brandon Wheat Kings 9 @ Regina Pats 3
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -5, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 63 GP, 24-27-51, -11, 102 PIM
With Regina: 35 GP, 11-14-25, -3, 50 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

This was the Pats’ final home game of the season, which meant it was the last time the Regina faithful could see Jordan Eberle up close. Eberle was awarded the game’s First Star despite the blowout loss to the Memorial Cup hosts. Eberle did have a goal in the game and remains two points up on Brandon Kozon for the league scoring title. He’s rumored to possibly be joining the Oilers before the end of the NHL season. Ashton, meanwhile, had a horrific night in the plus/minus department and will play his final junior game Saturday in Brandon. He has an NHL contract in hand and will likely join the AHL Norfolk Admirals next week.

Kelowna Rockets 4 @ Vancouver Giants 3
C/W/D James Wright, VAN: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 19 GP, 5-11-16, -3, 13 PIM
With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

The Giants finally returned home after a 10-game Olympic road trip, but fell to the Rockets 4-3. They had battled back from a 3-0 first period deficit only to see the game winner scored late in the third. Wright has been playing a little defense lately at the request of his coach, Don Hay. Vancouver is locked into the West’s No.2 seed despite having the conference’s fifth best point total. Winning the B.C. Division will do that. They will play Chilliwack or Kamloops in the first round.

CHL Game Night: 3-10-10

OHL

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Bellville Bulls 5
G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 20 saves on 23 shots in relief
Season Totals: 47 GP, 14-26-2-1, 4.06 GAA, .885 sv%, 2 SO
C Richard Panik, BEL: 0-2-2, +1, 2 PIM (boarding)
Season Totals: 58 GP, 19-18-37, +4, 49 PIM
With Bulls: 25 GP, 10-9-19, -11, 30 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: Did not play.
Season Totals: 57 GP, 19-14-33, -19, 51 PIM
With Bulls: 44 GP, 17-13-30, -17, 31 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Oshawa desperately needed a win against last-place Belleville to stay in the running for the East’s final playoff spot, but starter Kevin Bailie allowed two goals on 11 early shots and was pulled in favor of Zador, who got the back-door loss for the Gens. Oshawa is not technically eliminated from the playoff race, but might as well be. They have two games left and are three points behind Sudbury, who has a game in hand on the Gens. DeCoste missed the game due to a concussion and Panik (pictured) scored his fifth and sixth points in his last five games. Bulls center Adam Payerl (undrafted in 09) scored four times for Belleville. He now has 16 goals on the year.

Season Totals: 57 GP, 19-14-33, -19, 51 PIM
With Bulls: 44 GP, 17-13-30, -17, 31 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Barrie beat the Bulls for the second time in a week, and unlike last game, Panik couldn’t find the back of the net for Bellville. He had two in their previous meeting. Hutchings hit 75 points for the first time in his OHL career. Barrie clinched the overall top seed in the OHL with the win. The Bulls have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. According to the Belleville Intelligencer, DeCoste missed the game with a concussion sustained in Bellville’s last match-up with Barrie.

Sudbury Wolves 2 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 1
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 48 GP, 7-20-27, -4, 18 PIM
With Sudbury: 26 GP, 4-13-17, -9, 12 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

This was a huge win for the Wolves on the road against a team above them in the standings. With Niagara also winning and Oshawa losing, Sudbury is three points up on Oshawa for the last playoff spot in the East with three games remaining. They are one point behind No.7 Niagara and two behind No.6 Peterborough. While getting the eighth seed means you’re in, you’re also going to face Barrie – the CHL’s top ranked team who has just nine losses.

Peterborough Petes 6 @ Oshawa Generals 2
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

The Gens are just now three points behind Sudbury for the final playoff spot with three games remaining. Zador hasn’t played in Oshawa’s last three games (2-1-0).

WHL

Vancouver Giants 6 @ Chilliwack Bruins 0
C/W James Wright, VAN: 1-0-1, +1, 7 PIM (roughing, fighting vs. Shayne Neigum)
Season Totals: 18 GP, 5-10-15, -1, 13 PIM
With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

The Giants broke their four-game losing streak in a big way. Wright scored for the first time since February 15. This was Wright's first fighting major since he took on Atlanta's 6'7" Boris Valabik the day after Christmas. The Giants have basically clinched the B.C. Division title so they’re in line for the West’s No.2 seed, though they are tied for the fourth best point total in the conference with Portland behind Everett, Tri-City, and Spokane. They have three games remaining.

CHL Game Night: 3-5-10

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 4 @ St. John Sea Dogs 3 (SO)
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, *First Star*
Season Totals: 59 GP, 14-42-56, +39, 64 PIM

A big, confidence-building win for the Wildcats over the CHL’s second-ranked team on the Sea Dog’s home ice. Moncton is ranked No.4 in the CHL. Barberio’s goal came in the first period on the power play to tie the game at two for Moncton. He has goals in two straight games and is one off his career high with five games left. He did not participate in the shootout.

OHL

Belleville Bulls 3 @ Sudbury Wolves 4

With Bulls: 23 GP, 10-7-17, -11, 28 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-4-4, +2, 2 PIM (holding opponent’s stick), *First Star*
Season Totals: 46 GP, 7-19-26, -4, 18 PIM
With Sudbury: 24 GP, 4-12-16, -9, 12 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Sointu (pictured) has six points in his last two games. The four points in a game were a career high for the young Finn. Panik scored for the second game in a row, but took a double-minor for spearing as the game ended.

Barrie Colts 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 64 GP, 45-29-74, +38, 54 PIM

A rare loss for the CHL’s top-ranked team from Barrie. Hutchings saw his point streak end at 12 games and his goal streak end at seven. He’s five goals short of 50 with four games remaining.

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

The Gens are two points behind Niagara for the East’s last playoff spot with five games remaining.

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Regina Pats 4
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 61 GP, 24-26-50, -5, 100 PIM
With Regina: 33 GP, 11-13-24, +3, 48 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

The Pats get a win despite being out of the playoff race. Ashton’s goal, which came on the power play, was his first in eight games. He tied his career high for points in a season at 50, set in 70 games last year with the Hurricanes (30 goals).

Vancouver Giants 1 @ Kamloops Blazers 6
C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season Totals: 16 GP, 4-10-14, -1, 6 PIM
With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

The Giants have now lost three in a row. Wright hasn’t registered a point in his last four games and is minus-six during that time.

CHL Game Night: 3-4-10

OHL

Belleville Bulls 3 @ Barrie Colts 4
C Richard Panik, BEL: 2-0-2, +2, 2 PIM (interference), *Third Star*
Season Totals: 55 GP, 18-16-34, +6, 43 PIM
With Bulls: 22 GP, 9-7-16, -9, 24 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 57 GP, 19-14-33, -19, 51 PIM
With Bulls: 44 GP, 17-13-30, -17, 31 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 63 GP, 45-29-74, +40, 54 PIM

Although Hutchings scored his 45th of the year, fellow Lightning prospect Richard Panik (pictured) had the most goals of anyone in the game with two – good enough for a Third Star honor on the road. Panik’s goals cut Barrie’s leads to 2-1 and 3-2 respectively in the third period. The Bulls would later tie it at three before Barrie got a goal with just over three minutes remaining to win it. Hutchings extended his point streak to 12 games and his goal streak to seven games. Barrie has five games left and Hutchings is five goals from 50.
