Schemitsch had his brief point streak snapped at two games, but that's not all that was broken. A Bayshore Broadcasting report states Schemitsch went down with what's being called a broken arm or wrist. He'll miss the next 6-8 weeks of play. Predators 2009 first rounder Ryan Ellis was First Star in a losing effort, with a goal and three assists for Windsor. Spits goalie Jack Campbell, a Stars first rounder in 2010, was pulled after giving up three goals in 18 minutes. Campbell’s record is 17-11-1-2. He has a 3.85 GAA and .884 save percentage on the year.
