The attack scored twice in the third to take a 3-1 lead, then hung on to win 3-2. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch was scoreless in the game, but has six points in his last seven games. Michael Zador did not dress for Owen Sound. Stars pick Jack Campbell was Second Star with 41 saves for the Spits. Game 5 is Wednesday in Owen Sound.

No.1 Dubuque Fighting Saints 3 @ No.4 Fargo Force 0
Dubuque wins best of five series 3-0

C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 52 GP, 23-37-60, +29, 26 PIM
Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

And that’s that. Dubuque scored twice in the first period while outshooting the Force 13-5, then withstood a 14-1 shot onslaught in the third period to defeat Fargo 3-0 and advance to the conference finals. Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin, who led the team in scoring during the regular season, was shut out of both this series and the qualifying round. That said, he had a great first (and only) season in the USHL and will take his talents to the Miami Redhawks of the NCAA next season.

Both of the Fighting Saints goals Friday were scored in the second period. Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin, who earlier in the day was named to the USHL All-Rookie team, tied for the team lead with three shots on goal. Game 3 is Saturday in North Dakota.

Owen Sound leads best of seven series 1-0

A springtime snowman in Owen Sound. Andrew Shaw (undrafted) and Joey Hishon (Avalanche) each had two goals and Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch had two helpers to lead the Attack to a stomping of Windsor in the opening game of the OHL Western Conference Finals. Michael Zador did not dress for the Attack, and at the rate Scott Stajcer is going in net for Owen Sound, he likely won’t see the ice again outside of a possible trophy-carrying parade around the rink. Dallas Stars first rounder Jack Campbell allowed all eight goals for the Spits. Game 2 is Thursday in Windsor.

WHL

Western Conference Semifinals

No.4 Tri-City Americans 4 @ No.2 Spokane Chiefs 5 (OT)
Spokane wins best of seven series 4-2

RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM
Playoff Totals: 10 GP, 3-5-8, E, 4 PIM
C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, E, 15 PIM (major-kneeing, game misconduct)
Season Totals: 71 GP, 53-62-115, +27, 48 PIM
Playoff Totals: 9 GP, 5-4-9, -1, 17 PIM

Tri-City held a 3-0 lead entering the third period against an opponent whose leading scorer, Lightning prospect Tyler Johnson, was forbidden to return to the game due to a misconduct. Before the Ams could stop dreaming about a Game 6 win and 3-3 series tie, Spokane had scored four times in the first nine minutes of the period to take a one goal lead. TC needed a power play goal to send the game to overtime, but Spokane’s Levko Koper (Thrashers) scored for the Chiefs to send the club on to the conference finals against Portland beginning Friday in Oregon.

With his team eliminated, Lightning prospect Carter Ashton’s junior career is now complete. The former Lightning first rounder, who already holds an NHL contract, can join the Norfolk Admirals if the organization so chooses. Next season he’ll be competing for a spot with the big club out of camp.

Gatineau held serve at home, winning games three and four by a combined 10-2 score. The Olympiques scored once in the first and three times in the second period to be up comfortably entering the third period. They were up 6-0 under three minutes into the final period. Adam Janosik notched his fourth point of the playoffs in the win. This game, as is to be expected with a lopsided score in the third period, got chippy late with a hoard of roughing penalties. Game 5 is Friday at the home of the Volts.
