    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Sherbrooke Phoenix 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 1

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM, 2 SOG, 12/21 FO, 0 Hits
    With Sherbrooke: 19 GP, 13-15-28, -2, 20 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 14-28-42, -8, 34 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    Darcy was held scoreless but Sherbrooke was able to eke out a road win against the club at the bottom of the West Division thanks to netminder Evan Fitzpatrick, who stopped 34 of 35 shots in the match.

    Victoriaville Tigres 4 @ Quebec Remparts 9

    W Adam Erne, QUE: 0-2-2, +1, 7 PIM, 4 SOG, 3/5 FO, 0 Hit
    Season totals: 44 GP, 28-35-63, +16, 74 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

    Quebec followed up Friday night's win with a solid thumping of visiting Victoriaville. Erne was in on the action with a couple helpers wrapped around a bout with defenseman Phil Pietroniro.

    Ontario Hockey League

    North Bay Battalion 3 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4 (SO)

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 1-0-1, +3, 7 PIM
    With SSM: 9 GP, 3-12-15, +6, 17 PIM
    With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 13-40-53, +7, 81 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    DeAngelo's point streak hit eight games with a first period marker that put the powerhouse that his club is up by three and he engaged in a round of fisticuffs that might very well have made some of the denizens of his hometown proud. It bears repeating that the Soo still hasn’t lost since DeAngelo (and others) were acquired at the OHL trade deadline.

    Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 3 (SO)

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 42 GP, 15-17-32, -7, 83 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    Windsor erased two deficits to push the game on into extra time only to fall in the skills competition. Scoreless in Windsor's last game, DiGiacinto provided a secondary dish that made for his fourth point in his last four games.

    Ottawa 67's 4 @ Peterborough Petes 2

    D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 37 GP, 7-13-20, -19, 57 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

    Masin's seven-game point streak and Peterborough's brief run came to a grinding halt against the 67's.

    Western Hockey League

    Brandon Wheat Kings 6 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 0

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, -1, 5 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 21-33-54, +9, 32 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Point was reduced to denting the score sheet being credited with a fight -- his second of the season -- and that about tells you all you need to know for how things were going for Moose Jaw on the ice Saturday night.

    Edmonton Oil Kings 0 @ Calgary Hitmen 5

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: Did not play
    Season totals: 39 GP, 5-16-21, +6, 18 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

    Thomas sat this one out but Calgary rolled anyway en route its sixth straight victory. In the past three games, the Hitmen have put up an eye-popping 23 goals while allowing just a single goal against.

    Bishop saves the day.

    CBJ-1
    TB-3

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 35 shots for the victory. With the Lightning playing flat as a pancake in front of him, Bishop made a handful of key stops to give his club the time to pull away in the Third Period. Make no mistake, though, Bishop was the margin in this one and the game was closer than the scoreboard indicates.

    First Period
    19:36 TB Connolly (9), (Morrow, Garrison)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    10:02 TB Paquette (10), (Drouin, Killorn)
    11:43 TB Filppula (10), (unassisted)
    16:34 CBJ Johansen (19), (Savard, Murray)

    Bishop, Jason Garrison, and Ryan Callahan were the game's three stars.

    I can't help but be a little alarmed at how flat the Lightning have played recently going into games against lower-tier opponents like Carolina, Columbus, etc. There's some bad habits and a little bit of laziness/lack of focus (particularly on their continually awful PP) that crops up in these games that you don't see as much of against the big boys like Detroit. The mark of the really elite clubs is that they play their game regardless of who they're lining it up against, but that hasn't been the case lately for the Lightning. They'll need to get over that if they want to progress to the next level on their way to becoming a championship caliber team. Finding some sort of identity/concept on the PP would be a nice addition, too.

    Cedric Paquette had a goal (GWG), 3 shots, and 1 hit in 13:53. He was also 67% on draws. That's 5 goals in the last 3 games. Tonight was Cedric's 41st game of the season, which graduates him from prospect status here on the website. We've been online (officially) since the '05-'06 season, and in 9.5 seasons of hockey I can't recall a prospect hitting their graduation threshold with this kind of flair. You can't help but feel wonderful for the young man who was an overage 4th rounder who got passed over completely in his first draft year and had to work so hard to improve his skating to make it to the league, where he's now flourishing.

    Jonathan Drouin had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot in 13:29. It's lost in the meteoric rise of Cedric Paquette, but Drouin's got 4 helpers and is +4 in the last 3 games, as well. He's got 1 more game to go to graduate from prospect status on the website, too, and he's showing signs of finally starting to settle into the league now.

    Luke Witkowski was +2 with 1 shot in 12:33. Not noticable = very good for a rookie defenseman.

    No. 1 North Dakota 4 @ No. 5 Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks 3 (SO)

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    North Dakota was looking to avenge an overtime loss the previous night and got it Saturday night after O'Donnell delivered some overtime heroics, notching his 10th goal of the season in the process.

    No. 18 Quinnipiac Bobcats 2 @ Brown Bears 2 (OT)

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 26 GP, 5-21-26, +1, 21 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 40 GP, 12-26-38, +4, 16 PIM

    Peca followed his very productive Friday night with a helper on a third period tally that gave Quinnipiac the lead but Brown was able to respond soon after to force a stalemate.

    Minnesota Golden Gophers 4 vs Wisconsin Badgers 4 (OT)

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 21 saves on 25 shots
    Season totals: 24 GP, 12-8-3, 2.68 GAA, .901 sv%, 3 SO
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    Seth Ambroz (2011 5th rounder - CBJ) scored in the final seconds of regulation to cap a wild third period that saw both teams combine for five goals. After a scoreless overtime period, Wisconsin technically won the ensuing shootout.

    Vasiy wins the duel.

    SYR-3
    HER-2 (SO)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots before denying 3 of 3 in the penalty shot session for the win. He's becoming a bit of a legend in the shootout.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    SYR Richard, (7) (Gourde, Paradis), 4:22
    SYR Gourde, (16) (Angelidis), 6:32 (SH)
    HER Newbury, (14) (Byers, Gazley), 17:03

    Third Period

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    SYR- Marchessault
    HER- NONE

    Yanni Gourde was the game's third star. Can you tell the Hershey media picked the three stars?

    With the victory, Syracuse has climbed to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, 1 point up on the Manchester Monarchs. That's mildly amazing for a team that's 28th in the league on the PP. Imagine how good the Crunch would be if they had one.

    HIFK 3 vs. HPK 2
    Saku Salminen, HPK, DNP

    Saku Salminen did not dress for HPK's 3-2 loss to HIFK. Ex-Bruins first rounder Zach Hamill had a helper in defeat for HPK.

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 2-3-5, +10, 36 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    MacLeod couldn’t get in on the scoring party, though contributed to BU’s 9-5 shellacking of UMass Friday. Jack Eichel had two goals and two assists for BU. Senior Evan Rodrigues (undrafted) had six assists. UMass actually held a 5-4 lead at one point.

    No. 1 North Dakota 2 @ No. 5 Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks 3

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    In a match-up of two top-5 teams, O’Donnell earned an assist when his shot missed an open net but UND was able to capitalize seconds later. North Dakota scored twice in the third period to erase a 2-0 deficit before Andrej Sustr’s alma mater scored in overtime.

    No. 18 Quinnipiac Bobcats 5 @ Brown Bears 3

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 1-2-3, +4, 0 PIM, 6 SOG

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 22 saves on 27 shots
    Season totals: 23 GP, 12-8-2, 2.62 GAA, .904 sv%, 3 SO
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    Wilcox gets the win despite allowing five goals, putting him within one win of fourth all time on the Gopher goalie wins list. He has 63 wins in 100 games, per the University of Minnesota. The Gophers fell out of the USCHO top-20 poll last week for the first time in seemingly forever.

    RCH-4

    Vasily Koshechkin enjoyed 5 goals of support from his Magnitogorsk teammates in their 5-3 win over Yugra. It's a good thing, too, as fellow Lightning draftee Nikita Gusev had a pair of helpers in 17:39 of ice time in his first game back after the All-Star Break to help lead a potent Yugra attack in defeat.

    St. Petersburg 1 vs. Mytischi 3

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    While the forwards got off to a hot start, the Syracuse Crunch defense proved to be the difference.

    Syracuse opened the scoring 69 seconds into the game and Rochester answered with a pair of goals in the next 1:24, but three Crunch defensemen registered their second goal of the season in a 6-4 win over the Americans in the first game after the all-star break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "Bottom line is we've been working on in practice to get our D more involved in the offense, just get them up in the rush so they're in there for shots, more people at the net and D being more active," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "They were tonight."
