Elmira Advances in ECHL Playoffs

The playoff seasons of Lightning prospects Riku Helenius and Kevin Quick will last at least another week as Elmira defeated Trenton in a decisive Game Seven matchup in Trenton 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Helenius lost Game Two, allowing 6 goals on 38 shots in a 6-5 defeat. He has spent the rest of the series backing up Michael Teslak.

Quick joined the club for a 5-0 shutout win in Game Three after finishing up the regular season with the Lightning in Atlanta. Quick is scoreless in 5 games with a -3 rating.

Elmira now moves on to face Cincinnati in the second round of the playoffs, beginning Friday night. The Cyclones survived a 7 game encounter with Wheeling in their opening round playoff series. They were the top team in the ECHL's North Division during the regular season.
