Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 1
QMJHL Second Round
Cape Breton leads best-of-7 series, 1-0

Playoff totals: 5 GP, 5-2-7, +4, 8 PIM
Season totals: 58 GP, 33-40-73, +35, 57 PIM

Cape Breton stole home ice advantage with a 4-1 win in Game 1 of their best-of-7 second round series with third-seeded Saint John. Lightning prospect Mathieu Joseph remains out of the playoffs with a cut calf muscle that required surgery. Boko Imama led the Sea Dogs in hits with six, twice as many as everyone else. Saint John’s scorers will have to step up in the absence of Joseph, who was a team leader on and off the scoresheet.

Charlottetown Islanders 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 5
QMJHL Second Round
Shawinigan leads best-of-7 series, 1-0

W Dennis Yan, SHAW: 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 1 Hit
Playoff totals: 6 GP, 2-4-6, +8, 16 PIM
Season totals: 62 GP, 32-37-69, +8, 86 PIM

The Cataractes had a 4-0 lead by the time the second period was only five minutes old, then got a little scare when the Islanders scored two quick goals in the next six minutes. Shawinigan held on for the victory. Yan had two primary assists. He had only two regular season multi-point games after January 11, one of which was the last game of the season.

NOTES: AHL Syracuse added three prospects yesterday, including Dominik Masin and Matthew Spencer of Peterborough, and Jonne Tammela, who was recently signed by the Lightning after his season completed in Finland.

Peterborough took North Bay to the limit, but ultimately fell to the Battalion and is now out of the playoffs. Peterborough scored first, but North Bay responded with four goals, including a late empty-netter. The game marks the close of Dominik Masin’s junior career. He’s signed to an entry-level contract already and will likely join AHL Syracuse in the next few days. He could have played in the AHL this year but returned to the OHL to get ice time after missing the second half of last season. He started slow, but was near a point-per-game player over the last couple months while playing on the top pair with fellow Lightning prospect Matt Spencer. Spencer, who was a team-worst -4 in the series, will return to the OHL next season. It’s unclear if he’ll be one of the prospects brought into Syracuse to finish the AHL season.

The Battalion skated out to a 3-0 lead by the midway point of the second period before Peterborough scored the next five goals. North Bay pulled the game to 6-5 with 37 seconds left in the game, but the only goal scored before the end was a Petes empty-netter. Game 7 is Tuesday in North Bay.

Joseph sustained a significant cut on his leg early in the game, per Rogers TV, and left the arena on a stretcher put in an ambulance. He tweeted: "People who wanted to know, everything's fine! I'll know more tmr after the operation ! Thanks everyone for the support !" No timetable has been announced for his return, or if he will return. If not, that's a huge blow for the Sea Dogs.

Sens prospect Thomas Chabot scored in the first overtime to advance Saint John to the second round of the QMJHL playoffs.

Season totals: 61 GP, 21-36-57, -16, 27 PIM

Oshawa’s season ended in Game 5 against the Fronts, losing 6-0. Cirelli, who captained the Gens for the latter part of the season, had a fine year – his first as a scoring liner. He’s now a candidate to join AHL Syracuse, at least in practice.

Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Kitchener Rangers 5
Western Conference Quarterfinals
Kitchener wins best-of-7 series, 4-1

Season totals: 63 GP, 16-26-42, +15, 105 PIM

The Rangers eliminated the Spits Friday night with a 5-2 win. DiGiacinto, who practiced with AHL Syracuse last season when Windsor was done, could return to the Crunch shortly. He’s up for a contract this spring, but his lackluster second half has added some doubt that will happen. At the least, the Crunch/Lightning can give him an extended evaluation in the next couple weeks.

Mitchell Stephens closed his junior season with a goal and an assist. His season was plagued by an early, significant injury, but was highlighted by good production in the second half after a good showing with Canada at the WJCs. He’s probable to join AHL Syracuse for its stretch run.
