    Toledo Walleye 3 at Kalamazoo Wings 0

    W Brian Hart, KAL, DNP
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIMs, 3 SOG

    Other Notables
    G Nic Riopel, KAL, DNP
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0-0, 2.51 GAA, 0.918 SV%, 1 SO

    The K-Wings scoreless drought reached 134:55 after consecutive games of 3-0 shutouts. Wednesday night the Toledo Walleye administered the lockdown. Bolts prospect Brian Hart, who played 7 games without registering a point, found himself serving popcorn. A puzzling start to the season for a prospect who had decent training camps. Kalamazoo continues its 3-game home stand with Cincinnati and Quad Cities on Friday and Saturday night.

    Lightning continue absolute ownership of the Islanders.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed just 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. He made a bevy of key, difficult saves at important times to allow the team in front of him to eventually build the game into a laugher. Vasilevskiy is now 3 decisions away from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects, by my count.

    First Period
    8:03 TB Stamkos (8), (Johnson, Namestnikov)(PP)
    11:00 TB Kucherov (5), (Hedman, Stamkos)

    Second Period
    2:50 TB Johnson (5), (Stamkos, Palat)(PP)
    8:04 NYI Ladd (2), (Boychuk)

    Third Period
    1:08 TB Boyle (4), (Paquette)

    Steven Stamkos, Vasilevskiy, and Tyler Johnson were the game's three stars.

    In boxing, the old saying goes "Styles make the fight". Sometimes, though, the "styles" or the matchups simply align to where one team just has absolute dominance over the other. Such is the case between Tampa Bay and the Islanders. Something about the styles and the matchups just gives the Lightning an absolute leg up on Brooklyn's team. The Lightning obviously have a skill and speed advantage between the two teams, but the familiarity between the two clubs out of the playoff series last year seems to have bred a contempt that leads the Lightning skill to bear down on the Islanders and bury them with added zest and zeal.

    Making it worse for the Islanders is that they played a horribly undisciplined game. The Lightning spent half the game on the man advantage and made the Isles pay on two of them. By the end, it looked like the dispirited Isles had given up, and I honestly wonder how much longer the shabbily clad and quaffed Coach Capuano keeps his job after an effort like that. They were a hot, sad mess.

    Brayden Point had 1 shot in 16:10 of a very quiet outing.

    Slater Koekkoek was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 14:46 of a very quiet outing.

    Inexplicable mistakes rob Lightning of fruits of a decent effort.


    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the loss. Played very well in a goaltending duel, but lost on an inexcusable mistake by his best d-man.

    First Period
    3:10 FLA Marchessault (7), (Yandle, Barkov)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    1:15 TB Palat (2), (unassisted)
    15:32 FLA Smith (3), (unassisted)
    19:24 FLA MacKenzie (1), (Yandle)(EN)

    Bishop was the game's third star.

    The Lightning played better than the scoreboard indicated tonight, as they really matched and exceeded the Panthers' intensity level and had one of their better forechecking nights of the year from about midway through the First Period on. Luongo held serve for the Panthers long enough for Victor Hedman to make the inexplicable mistake of allowing his pocket to be picked at the Lightning blueline allowing the winning goal to be scored against. It squanders an effort that, in my opinion, showed marked improvement from players like Palat and Johnson who have struggled to find their form early in this campaign.

    Brayden Point had 2 shots and 1 hit in 15:15.

    Slater Koekkoek had 1 shot and 3 hits in 11:11 as his minutes suffered with the return of Nesterov in the 7 d-man lineup.

    Kalamazoo Wings 0 at Wheeling Nailers 3

    W Brian Hart, KAL, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIMs, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIMs, 3 SOG

    Other Notables
    G Nic Riopel, KAL, L, 59:25 MIN, 25/26
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0-0, 2.51 GAA, 0.918 SV%, 1 SO

    Nic Riopel saved 25 of 26 shots Sunday night on the road in Wheeling, allowing just a single power play goal just past the midway point of the 2nd period. The Nailers added two empty net goals in the last minute and a half to make the victory look a bit more lopsided than it actually was. Just last weekend, Riopel allowed 8 Wheeling goals, so if you were looking for a response game, I'd say Riopel delivered. Kalamzoo returns home for a 3-game stand with Toledo rolling in Wednesday night followed by Cincinnati and Quad Cities on Friday and Saturday night.

    Charlottetown Islanders 3 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 2 (OT)

    W Bokondji Imama, SJ: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 6-5-11, -3, 12 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 48 GP, 7-12-19, -5, 86 PIM

    W Mathieu Joseph, SJ: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 15-9-24, +7, 13 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 58 GP, 33-40-73, +35, 57 PIM

    Joseph and Imama both scored for the third straight game, but the Dogs fell to Charlottetown. Imama, who was sent back to juniors in part because he would be able to play more minutes and a more traditional top-9 role, is within one goal of matching last year’s goal total for the entire season. Filip Chlapik (Senators) scored two goals Sunday for Charlottetown, giving him 16 for the year – one head of Mathieu Joseph for second in the league. Chlapik tied for the league lead in points with 29.

    Ottawa 67’s 0 @ Oshawa Generals 6

    C Anthony Cirelli, OSH: 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG, 13/22 FO

    2015-2016 Season: 62 GP, 21-38-59, -15 27 PIM

    Cirelli was in on two of Oshawa’s four second period goals as the Gens beat the 67’s, 6-0. Jeremy Brodeur (undrafted) stopped 19 shots for the shutout.
