Edmonton Oil Kings 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 2 (OT)

C Brayden Point, MJ: 2-0-2, -2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
Season totals: 20 GP, 13-15-28, +12, 19 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point had two goals and was first star for the second straight game, but his Warriors fell in overtime to Edmonton, 3-2. Point’s first goal came when he held the puck behind Edmonton’s net and got goaltender Tristan Jarry (Penguins) to look to his right while he darted out on the left post and slid it beside the unsuspecting goalie. His second goal was scored near the right post with a quick wrist shot off a loose puck. He was on the ice for the game-tying goal by Justin Pollock (Stars), who went around Moose Jaw defenseman Tyler Brown and cut in to the net where he lifted a backhander far side with 39 seconds left. Moose Jaw got a power play shortly thereafter, but couldn’t capitalized in overtime. With 46 seconds left in overtime Point won an offensive zone faceoff to Brown at the right point, who fumbled the puck. Pollock picked it up and skated in alone on Justin Paulic before beating him with a backhand deke high into the net. Pollock looked a lot like Valeri Nichushkin on both plays, which is ironic because Pollock is a Stars draft pick. Point beat out Pollock for first star, which was likely decided before the overtime winner. Pollock was second star.

Moose Jaw Warriors 5 @ Prince Albert Raiders 3

C Brayden Point, MJ: 2-1-3, +5, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *First Star*
Season totals: 19 GP, 11-15-26, +14, 19 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point had two goals, an assist, and his line was all plus-5 as the Warriors beat the Raiders, 5-3. Point is starting to dominate most of his shifts and could be taking his already-impressive game to another level.

Calgary Hitmen 6 @ Kootenay Ice 7 (OT)

D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 20 GP, 2-9-11, +2, 12 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Calgary held a 6-5 lead with under two minutes to go in regulation, but Kootenay scored with their goalie pulled 5-on-5. The Ice then took a delay of game call to give the Hitmen a 5-on-3 power play, but they couldn’t convert despite several prime chances. The 4-on-3 power play carrying over into overtime didn’t net a goal, either, and Kootenay made them pay with a goal after a bad icing call with 15 seconds left. Thomas was aggressive offensively in the third period and overtime. He was on the ice for the game-tying goal when the Ice simply outworked every Hitman to each loose puck before scoring on their third scoring chance of the sequence. Thomas did not play on the 5-on-3 or 4-on-3. Buffalo’s first overall pick in last summer’s draft, Sam Reinhart, had four assists and some nice defensive plays for Kootenay.

Russia won both games, 3-2, with one of the wins coming in the shootout. Bob McKenzie of TSN tweeted @BoltProspects today to say Point may have been the best player on the ice in the two games.
