    Lightning head into their "bye week" in style.

    TB-4
    WPG-1

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 33 shots for the win. If you want to know why the Lightning have gone on a little run here recently, look no farther than the crease where they've started to get quality starts consistently from both Bishop and Vasilevskiy.

    First Period
    12:05 TB Point (7), (Drouin)
    17:02 TB Boyle (13), (Hedman, Dotchin)

    Second Period
    2:11 TB Palat (11), (Point, Sustr)

    Third Period
    11:15 WPG Trouba (5), (Byfuglien, Wheeler)
    19:24 TB Hedman (8), (Palat, Paquette)(EN)

    Jonathan Drouin and Brayden Point were the game's first and second stars.

    The Lightning may end up regretting having to take this bye week, because they've gotten some momentum for the first time since early in the season.

    With 57 points through 56 games, the Lightning now need 39 of 52 remaining points to hit the magic number of 96 points. That's still a .750 pace, which is why you shouldn't be surprised if some selling begins this week.

    Jake Dotchin had a helper and 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 2 hits in 17:14. Dotchin with the puck in open ice is a bit of an adventure. Keep it simple, young man.

    Gabriel Dumont had 2 penalty minutes, 3 hits, 1 blocked shot, and was 50% on 8 draws in 11:58.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    The Syracuse Crunch squandered a golden opportunity.

    With the score tied in the final two minutes against the Senators, the Crunch were awarded a power play after a tripping call. Instead of the Crunch completing a comeback, Max McCormick converted on a 2-on-1 shorthanded chance to lift Binghamton to a 3-2 win over Syracuse at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “It’s tough. There’s only 1:40 left and we’re going on the power play to win it, not to lose it,” Crunch alternate captain Matt Taormina said. “It takes a little bit of a bounce over (Matthew) Peca’s stick, and we don’t take guys going back to the net or anything, and that kind of takes the wind out of the sails a little bit.”

    C Ross Colton, UVM: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG

    Season Totals: 2 GP, 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM
    2015-2016 (Finland): 37 GP, 5-8-13, +10, 16 PIM

    Spencer was plus-2 and the Petes won Wednesday despite getting outshot 27-16. He’s not putting up a lot of points, but Paquette is doing his job in the faceoff circle for the Petes. Not bad considering he played on the wing for Niagara before the trade.

    London Knights 4 @ Flint Firebirds 3 (SO)

    W/C Mitchell Stephens, LDN: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 11/22 FO

    Stephens scored for the seventh time in the last six games as London won in a shootout in Flint, 4-3. His shorthanded goal sent the game to overtime, and he also had the shootout winner. Not a bad night. It wasn’t enough for the Flint media to give him a game star, though.

    Western Hockey League

    Moose Jaw Warriors 3 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 4

    C Brett Howden, MJ: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 41 GP, 28-30-58, +4, 54 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 68 GP, 24-40-64, -7, 61 PIM

    Likely 2017 top-2 pick center Nolan Patrick had two goals and was first star for Brandon. Most mock drafts have him going to the Avalanche first overall.

    Kelowna Rockets 0 @ Kamloops Blazers 6

    G Connor Ingram, KAM: Win, 33 saves on 33 shots, shutout, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 20-9-2-1, 2.26 GAA, .932 sv%, 3 SO
    2015-2016 Season: 61 GP, 34-15-5-4, 2.61 GAA, .922 sv%, 4 SO

    Ingram stopped all 33 shots he faced, earning his third First Star award in the last 10 days. He now has a .10 lead on Carter Hart (Flyers) for first in the WHL in save percentage, though he trails Hart in GAA, 2.07 to 2.26. Hart has a sizeable lead in shutouts, 7-3. Ingram is third in the WHL in that category.
    gram is in goal.
