    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Shawinigan Cataractes 3 @ Quebec Remparts 6

    W/C Adam Erne, QUE: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 2 Hits, 6 SOG, 10/10 FO, *Second Star*
    2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

    Erne made his 2014-2015 debut for the Remparts and was second star for scoring a goal and adding a pair of helpers. His goal was unassisted and came shorthanded. Quebec went 2-3 in the five games Erne was with the Lightning prior to the NHL club reassigning him to juniors. Erne can play in the AHL next season if he doesn’t make the NHL, but is too young this year. He is expected to have a huge season in Quebec City as long as he can stay healthy. He was a center last year for Quebec, but was listed as a left wing on the official scoresheet on Sunday. He did take 10 faceoffs, however, which was third-most on the team. Erne was one of three players wearing alternate captain’s A’s on Sunday for Quebec. He was an alternate captain last year.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Guelph Storm 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 1

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    DiGiacinto did not play as he continues to serve a 5-game suspension received in Game 3 of last year’s playoffs vs London. DiGiacinto started a fight with London’s Gemel Smith as the two skated up the ice, which turned into a line brawl. London Coach and General Manager Mark Hunter compared the confrontation to the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident and the OHL agreed, giving DiGiacinto a 5-game ban for “bullying.” He is now three games into his 5-game timeout.

    Western Hockey League

    Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Calgary Hitmen 9

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 0-0-0, +1, 4 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

    Calgary put three field goals on the board as they crushed Lethbridge, 9-2, on Sunday. Fourteen of the 17 skaters Calgary dressed had at least a point in the game. Thomas was not one of them.

    Season totals (KHL), 6 GP, 2-1-3, -3, 2 PIM

    Nikita Gusev did not dress for Tyumen in their 2-1 shootout win over Lipetsk. Ex-Lightning pick Albert Vishnyakov scored the only goal in the shootout session for the losing side, Lipetsk.

    Saskatoon Blades 1 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 6

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 3-0-3, +3, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 2 GP, 3-1-4, +3, 0 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Point registered a natural hat trick late in the game for his first goals of the year in a blowout win over visiting Saskatoon. Undrafted Canadiens camper Tanner Eberle was first star with two goals. The Warriors had lost their first three games by a combined 18-3 score.

    HPK 5 vs. Tappara 2
    Saku Salminen, HPK, DNP
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM

    Ex-Lightning pick Eero Somervuori had a pair of helpers in HPK's 5-2 win over Tappara. Saku Salminen again did not dress for HPK.

  • 8 weeks 2 days ago

    Magnitogorsk 4 vs. Novokuznetsk 1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 16/17, 1.00 GAA, .941 sv%
    Season totals: 11 GP, 8-1-1, 2 SO, 1.16 GAA, .954 sv%

    After a minor hiccup in his last start, Vasily Koshechkin returned to the crease to turn aside 16 shots for Magnitogorsk in their 4-1 drubbing of Novokuznetsk. Jan Kovar had 1 goal and 1 assist for Metallurg in the win.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Erie Otters 5 @ Windsor Spitfires 2

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    DiGiacinto, who is expected to play a first line role this year with the Spits, did not play on Friday. He tweeted earlier in the day that he’d be a healthy scratch as he was just returned to the team from Tampa Bay. Super-prospect Connor McDavid (2015) had a goal, two assists, and was first star for the visiting Otters.

    Western Hockey League

    Regina Pats 7 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 1

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Moose Jaw’s newly named captain, Brayden Point (pictured), registered an assist in his first game of the season with Moose Jaw after spending the last few weeks with the Lightning. His Warriors were blown out at home, however, 7-1. Moose Jaw has been outscored 18-3 in their three games this year. They finished 10th in the 12-team Eastern Conference last season.

    Medicine Hat Tigers 4 @ Calgary Hitmen 2

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

    Thomas made his season debut after being reassigned to the Hitmen from Tampa Bay earlier this week. He had hooking and holding minor penalties in the game. A mobile, two-way defender, the key to Thomas raising his point totals will be gaining power play time this season.

    New additions help Lightning roll the Stars.

    DAL-3
    TB-6

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 13 shots before giving way to Evgeni Nabokov, who allowed 1 goal on 9 shots the rest of the way.

    First Period
    8:04 TB Stralman (1), (Boyle, Connolly)
    11:36 DAL Blanchard (1), (Ritchie, Dickinson)
    16:06 DAL Ranford (1), (Sceviour, Fiddler)
    16:35 TB Kunyk (1), (Hedman, Ikonen)

    Second Period
    4:36 TB Stralman (2), (unassisted)
    8:34 TB Kucherov (1), (Stamkos, Callahan)
    13:26 TB Corrente (1), (Boyle)

    Third Period
    7:44 TB Callahan (1), (unassisted)
    9:00 DAL Spezza (1), (Ritchie, Ranford)

    Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman, and Brian Boyle were the game's three stars: an ex-Rangers sweep.

    After icing two rosters against Nashville primarily composed of AHL and junior-level players, the Lightning put out something closer to their opening night roster tonight. They hung a six-pack of goals on the board. That's not too shabby.

    Chelyabinsk 4 vs. Khanty-Mansiysk 2
    Nikita Gusev, Khanty-Mansiysk, DNP
    Season totals: 6 GP, 2-1-3, -3, 2 PIM

    Nikita Gusev has been demoted to Rubin Tyumen of the VHL by Yugra. The club fell 4-2 today to Chelyabinsk. Tyumen's next game is Sunday against Lipetsk.

    Zagreb 1 vs. Bratislava 3
    Jaroslav Janus, Bratislava, Win, 20/21, 1.00 GAA, .952 sv%
    Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-1, 0 SO, 2.19 GAA, .915 sv%

    Nothing to sneeze at, actually.

    TB-0
    NSH-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the hard luck loss. He sparkled at times. Best of luck to Coach Zettler deciding between Kristers and Vasya most nights in Syracuse.

    First Period
    3:17 NSH Forsberg (1), (Ribeiro)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Gudlevskis was the game's third star.

    I can't feel too upset with the Lightning playing the roster they did tonight and finishing a post or two from upsetting something that closely approximates Nashville's opening night team. Shea Weber and Roman Josi were Nashville's high men in ice time tonight. Tampa Bay? Mark Barberio and Andrej Sustr were the blue hairs in there tonight for the Lightning. Kind of says it all, and it's another sign for optimism for Syracuse fans.
