    Swift Current Broncos 2 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 6

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 36-45-81, +8, 46 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Moose Jaw scored a huge win in an elimination game against Swift Current, winning 6-2. Point left the game injured, but later returned and scored Moose Jaw’s third goal on an adept re-direct of a slap-pass from the point. The Warriors pulled within two points of the Broncos for the last playoff spot in the division. Both teams have two games remaining; however, while the Broncos have 11th place Lethbridge twice, Moose Jaw has first place Brandon twice. It would take a minor miracle for Moose Jaw to get in. In the event of a tie, the team with the most victories takes the spot (currently 32-31 Broncos). If that is tied, it goes to most points earned in head-to-head, which finished 6-6 in points (3-3 with no OTL or SOL). It would then go to goals-for/against differential, and Swift Current has about an eight goal lead there. The first question will be if Brandon is resting its stars or not, giving Moose Jaw a chance.

    Lightning's regular season ownership of Montreal continues unabated.


    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 34 shots for the victory. After a so-so outing against Boston, he was sparkling against Montreal. Now, mind you, he did make it a lot harder on himself with his puckhandling gaffe to start the Third Period, but he made that 1 goal lead stand up the rest of the way, too. He seems to savor these duel opportunities against Price, and he's been getting the better end of them.

    First Period
    10:07 TB Filppula (12), (Hedman, Stamkos)(PP)
    15:58 TB Stamkos (38), (unassisted)

    Second Period
    2:45 TB Hedman (10), (Killorn, Callahan)
    11:10 MTL Plekanec (21), (Subban, Markov)(PP)

    Third Period
    0:34 MTL Parenteau (7), (Plekanec)
    18:55 TB Stamkos (39), (Namestnikov, Garrison)(PP)(EN)

    Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman were the game's first and third stars. I've said it constantly over the course of the second half: the franchise cornerstones need to be the team's best players for the Lightning to go anywhere in the playoffs this year. Tonight, in a playoff atmosphere against a hated opponent with division title supremacy up for grabs, the Lightning got 3 goals and 2 assists out of the duo. That's great to see, especially after the Hedman turnover in his last outing against Winnipeg.

    The Lightning are 3 points shy of the 96 points we target at the start of the season to comfortably make the playoffs, but the focus is starting to shift at this juncture of the season. The Lightning needed this win tonight to keep their Atlantic Division title aspirations in good shape, and they got it done. The teams are back to all square at 93 points each with the Habs holding a game in hand. But, the Lightning have a 4 game ROW lead right now, so the tie will likely go to Tampa Bay if it comes to that.

    Vladislav Namestnikov was -1 with a helper and 5 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 3 hits in 11:06. After taking several cross checks in the neutral zone from Brendan Gallagher, who thought he was safe by jumping on a baby-faced Russian rookie, Namestnikov swiftly took the initiative and relieved Gallagher of any sinus congestion he might be having by beating the snot out of the veteran with 3-4 quick rights. My goodness. Peckaham dubbed him "Baby Faced Killer" on the SunSports broadcast. A legend was born. If you're wondering, he's 9 games shy of graduation from prospect status on the website, so he's got a realistic opportunity to wrap that up before the regular season expires and join Drouin and Paquette as this year's Bolt Prospects Alumni class.

    Weekend sweep (roller coaster goes up)!

    SYR- 2

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 29 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season. He had 5 last season. He also got his save percentage back to .900 with the victory, just a shade below his .901 of a year ago.

    First Period
    SYR Gourde, (24) (Koekkoek, Kunyk), 9:31 (PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    SYR Courtnall, (5) (Smith, Blujus), 16:25

    Yanni Gourde, Gudlevskis, and once (and future?) Bolt Prospect Justin Courtnall were the game's three stars. Yes, quiet acquisition Justin Courtnall, the ex-Lightning pick and son-of-a-Geoff. He's back in our lives. Reunited, and it feels so good.
