    USHL

    Sioux City Musketeers 4 @ Fargo Force 3 (OT)
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 23-37-60, +29, 26 PIM

    Mullin’s assist gave him 60 points for the year, good enough to finish seventh in the league scoring race. That race was won by Mullin’s future Miami-Ohio teammate Blake Coleman (undrafted) of Indiana, who had 92 points – 17 more than anyone else in the league. No.4 Fargo’s recent stretch of sub-par play means they won’t get a first round bye in the playoffs. They’re set to meet Lincoln for a best of three series starting Friday in Fargo. All games will be played in North Dakota. Considering the Force had a better road record than at home, that might not be a good thing.

    QMJHL

    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 1-2-3, +8, 12 PIM

    Second-seeded Montreal is a Game 1 overtime goal away from being down 0-2 to eighth-seeded Lewiston in their QMJHL quarterfinals series. Olivier Dame-Malka (undrafted) scored four times Saturday to lead the MAINEiacs to a 6-2 win. Lightning prospect Charles Landry has points in consecutive games. Game 3 is Tuesday in Maine.

    Geoffrey Schemitsch (pictured) scored his first two points of the playoffs en route to First Star honors in Game 2 as the Attack took a 2-0 lead on Plymouth in their conference semifinal series. Michael Zador, the reigning CHL Goaltender of the Week, was pulled after the second period of Game 1 in favor of Scott Stajcer. Stajcer played all of Game 2 and Zador was relegated to the bleachers as a healthy scratch. Game 3 is Monday in Ontario.

    WHL

    Western Conference Semifinals

    No.4 Tri-City Americans 3 @ No.2 Spokane Chiefs 1
    Tri-City leads best of seven series 1-0

    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (charging)
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 4 PIM

    Season Totals: 71 GP, 53-62-115, +27, 48 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 2-2-4, E, 0 PIM

    Tri-City’s 5’8” goaltender Drew Owsley (undrafted) stopped 34 of 35 shots to steal Game 1 for the Americans and give his team home ice advantage in the series. If there was good news for Spokane, leading scorer Tyler Johnson was back on the ice after he was injured in Game 3 vs. Chilliwack. Neither Johnson nor fellow Lightning prospect Carter Ashton registered a point in Game 1. Game 2 is Sunday in Spokane.

    Eastern Conference Semifinals

    No.4 Kootenay Ice 3 @ No.1 Saskatoon Blades 2 (OT)
    Kootenay leads best of seven series 2-0

    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 8 GP, 0-3-3 +1, 8 PIM

    Saskatoon fell to 2-4 in their last six games and now find themselves with a tough uphill climb down 0-2 to fourth-seeded Kootenay going to the Ice’s home barn for the next two games. On Saturday, Kings super-prospect Brayden Schenn scored with just over a minute left in regulation for Saskatoon to tie the game, but the Ice’s Joe Antilla (undrafted) potted the overtime winner with 1:28 left in the extra session. Game 3 is Tuesday.

    Kelly Cup Playoffs – Eastern Conference Quarterfinals

    No.6 Florida Everblades 3 @ No.3 Kalamazoo Wings 5
    Kalamazoo wins best of five series 3-1

    LW Alex Hutchings: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season Totals: 51 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 41 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, -2, 6 PIM

    Florida’s season came to an end Saturday with a 5-3 loss to Kalamazoo. The K-Wings won the series three games to one. The ‘Blades fought back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game 3-3 midway through the third period, but Kalamazoo scored the game winner less than two minutes later then added an empty net goal. Hutchings’ first pro season comes to an end with a solid postseason showing where he finished second on the team in points. The former Barrie Colt will go into next year hoping to earn a spot on AHL Norfolk’s roster.

    Well, at least Harju got off the schnide.

    NOR-4
    SYR-5

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 5 goals on 31 shots in his first game back from his date with a skate blade for the loss. He did stop a penalty shot in the game.

    First Period
    NOR Harju, (22) (Szczechura), 11:04

    Second Period
    SYR Palmieri, (29) (Schofield), 2:17 (PP)
    NOR Berry, (14) (Roy), 7:39
    SYR Macenauer, (13) (Green, Clark), 7:55
    SYR Green, (15) (Deschamps), 10:05 (SH)
    SYR Deschamps, (15) (Green), 11:45 (SH)

    Third Period
    NOR Harju, (23) (Jones, Barberio), 6:52
    SYR Maroon, (26) (Holland, Guenin), 10:48 (PP)
    NOR Vernace, (7) (Milam, Harju), 14:46

    Johan Harju was the game's second star.

    With an assist tonight, Mark Barberio made it to the 30 point plateau. Not a bad rookie season for the young man.

    Good news/bad news: Charlotte won, so 3rd place in the East Division is out of the question. Binghamton lost, though, so if Norfolk wins tomorrow, they can climb to 4th in the East Division. More interesting, Connecticut lost, so Norfolk has clinched not worse than the #3 seed in the Atlantic Division via the crossover. They play Connecticut tomorrow night, and they now have two potential matchups: win and they get the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (and their .728 winning percentage). Lose and they draw the Manchester Monarchs (and their .620 winning percentage). Yes, the crossover rule is the dumbest in professional sports, and the only reason it's not an outrage to me is that I consider it only fair seeing how Norfolk was jobbed out of playoff spot last season by it. Not to be a conspiracy theorist, and Manchester is certainly no pushover, but perhaps the egg the Admirals laid in Syracuse over the past three nights had a silver lining?

    I respect Carolina. I respect their fans. But, oh how I enjoy the tears of their broadcasters! Tripp Tracy's are so sweet: like despair and cinnamon!

    TB-6
    CAR-2

    Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 44 shots for the victory. It wasn't his best performance, and he wasn't always square to shooters, but he was a pugnacious thorn in Carolina's side. He seemed to relish the opportunity to eliminate the Canes, and missed scoring a goal by an eyelash to put the punctuation on it. If that's his last regular season game in a Lightning jersey, how magnificent was that?

    First Period
    06:45 TB Moore (18), Downie (22), Bergeron (6)
    11:19 TB Lecavalier (25), St Louis (67)
    13:17 TB Stamkos (45), Purcell (33), Gagne (23)

    Second Period
    10:53 TB Clark (9), Lecavalier (29), St Louis (68)
    13:31 CAR Stillman (12), Staal (43), Skinner (32)(PP)

    Third Period
    08:33 CAR LaRose (16), Sutter (15), McBain (23)
    17:44 TB Gagne (17), Thompson (15)(EN)
    18:24 TB St Louis (31), Purcell (34) & M. Smith (1)(EN)

    Mike Smith, Vincent Lecavalier, and Martin St. Louis were the game's three stars.

    To go out and step on the throat of a team that had a win-and-in scenario on home ice should send a pretty chilling message to the rest of the Eastern Conference and to the Lightning's first round opponent, Pittsburgh, in particular. After wandering aimlessly for 3-4 weeks, the Lightning have really put their thinking caps on and are really playing like a team ready for the mixture of chess and hand-to-hand combat that is the NHL playoffs. Leading the charge is one Vincent Lecavalier, who enters this playoffs with a momentous opportunity (and St. Louis as well) to stamp a place in Tampa sports and hockey history.

    As an aside, Matt Smaby's play tonight was pretty nice. He's not polished, by any means, but +2 with 3 hits and 5 blocked shots is not a bad stat line for a stay-at-homer. Every once in a while, Smaby's play makes me wonder how good he could be if he got a little more ice time and experience. He's a nice #8 to have going into the playoffs. And, Dana Tyrell turned it up to 11 tonight against the Canes. Wow. If he plays like that in the playoffs, he's going to become a cult legend in Tampa Bay. He was 5'11", 185 lbs of nasty tonight. Those were two BoltProspects Alumni who definitely made us proud tonight.

    If you're keeping score at home, the Lightning just completed a 103 point season and also punched 3 of 4 division rivals right in the nose. They swept the Atlanta Thrashers, handed the Florida Panthers the loss that clinched last place in the Eastern Conference for that club, and smacked Carolina around twice down the stretch to keep them out of the playoffs. Yes, Caniacs, Mike Smith kept you out of the playoffs, and Mike Milbury was right on HNIC, you WILL take THAT to your graves.

    If I'm not mistaken, with the rule regarding division winners meaning Detroit has to pick after the Lightning no matter what, I believe the Lightning are now slotted in to the 23rd pick at the draft. Yes, this is a prospects site.

    And, you're welcome Torts. Now, go beat Washington. Shut Bruce Boudreau's yap.

    USHL

    Omaha Lancers 2 @ Fargo Force 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 9 SOG
    Season totals: 51 GP, 23-36-59, +28, 26 PIM

    Mullin’s 23rd goal of the season gave the Force a 1-0 lead in the second period, but Fargo gave up two in the third and fell to visiting Omaha. Mullin, who has six points in his last three games, led the team with nine shots on goal Friday. Fargo cannot finish higher than fourth in the East, but could fall to fifth as Lincoln is one point behind and both have one game remaining in the regular season.

    David Rose (undrafted) scored at 4:52 of overtime to give Montreal a Game 1 win over Lewiston, who had tied the game with 30 seconds remaining in regulation. Lightning prospect Charles Landry earned his first assist of the post-season in his fifth game. His plus-9 rating is second on the club for the playoffs. Game 2 is Saturday in Montreal.

    Playoff Totals: 7 GP, 0-3-3 +2, 8 PIM

    Saskatoon ran away with the best record in the WHL during the regular season, but is 2-3 in their last five games. Friday night could have been worse, the East's No.2 seed Red Deer lost 9-1 at home to No.3 Medicine Hat. Zahn, the Blades’ captain, had his third assist of the postseason Friday. Game 2 is Saturday in Saskatoon.

    No.6 Florida Everblades 3 @ No.3 Kalamazoo Wings 4
    Kalamazoo leads best of five series 2-1

    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 51 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 41 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 0-2-2, -2, 6 PIM

    Florida put up a good fight on the road, but a goal by former Vermont Catamount Brady Leisenring at the 8 minute mark of the third period put Kalamazoo up 4-3 for the game and eventually 2-1 in the series. Leisenring has played in three leagues (CHL, ECHL, AHL) this season. The ‘Blades will need a win Saturday in Michigan to stay alive. Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings notched his second point of the playoffs in the loss. Mike Zacharias stopped 30 shots in the loss and had an assist.

    Taking out the garbage.

    FLA-2
    TB-4

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 25 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    04:08 TB Lecavalier (23), St Louis (66), Stamkos (46)(PP)
    11:59 FLA Garrison (5), Santorelli (21), Dadonov (8)
    16:08 TB Malone (14), unassisted

    Second Period
    01:27 TB Lecavalier (24), unassisted(PS)
    15:06 TB Kubina (4), Malone (24), Downie (21)(PP)

    Third Period
    05:11 FLA Santorelli (20), Callahan (1), Dadonov (9)

    Vincent Lecavalier, Ryan Malone, and Mike Lundin were the game's three stars.

    At 101 points, the Lightning have met and exceeded my wildest expectations with 1 more game left to go. They've set the bar good and high for themselves for the immediate future. That's a very good problem to have.

    In 64 games, Vinny Lecavalier just matched his goal total from all of last season (24). If I told you two months he was going to do that, they might've fit me for a straight jacket and locked me up. He's looking very confident and very calm out there right now, and his penalty shot goal was smoother than Billy Dee Williams at the club in 1980. That's smooth. This postseason could be a legacy defining moment for Lecavalier; the kind of moment where he makes a serious case he's the single most important figure in Tampa Bay sports history. Seriously. It's a momentous opportunity, and he looks ready for it.

    Oh, and God still hates Panthers fans... all three of them.

    MODO 2 @ Sodertalje 0
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, 24/26, 2.11 GAA, .923 sv%
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 5 GP, 2-1-1, 0 SO, 1.83 GAA, .925 sv%

    Former Northern Michigan netminder Tuomas Tarkki made 22 saves to lead MODO to a 2-0 shutout of Sodertalje and a spot in the Elitserien next year. Lightning prospect netminder Riku Helenius made 24 stops, but in the absence of goal support Sodertalje's fate was sealed. The club will be relegated to the Allsvenskan next year. Vaxjo moves up to the Elitserien while MODO, barely, retains their spot in Sweden's top league.

    So ends the entry level contract of former first round pick Helenius. The netminder was loaned out to Sodertalje toward the end of last season with the emergence of Jaroslav Janus and he played well in earning Sodertalje's starting job in last year's Kval till Elitserien tournament. This year, however, Helenius' play tanked in the first month of the Elitserien regular season. He lost his starting job to young Pontus Sjogren and did not regain it until the final 3 games of the the Kval till Elitserien round, which may be too little, too late to earn a qualifying offer from the Lightning.

    OHL

    Western Conference Semifinals

    No.6 Plymouth Whalers 3 @ No.1 Owen Sound Attack 4 (OT)
    Owen Sound leads best of seven series 1-0

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: 20 saves on 23 shots in 40 minutes
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 2-0-0, 1.10 GAA, .958 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador, the reigning CHL Goaltender of the Week, got the start for the Attack in Game 1 vs. Plymouth, but was pulled after the second period down 3-2. No injury was reported. Attack goalie Scott Stajcer, who missed most of the season, stopped 14 of 14 shots the rest of the way to get the win. Geoffrey Schemitsch tied for the team high with a plus-2 rating. He was on the ice for the game tying goal mid-way through the third period. Maple Leafs draft pick Jesse Blacker had the game winner in overtime. Game 2 is Saturday in Michigan, and one would think Stajcer is starting Game 2, but nothing has been reported yet.

    A bad loss in Syracuse means reaching 3rd place will be difficult to achieve.

    NOR-3
    SYR-5

    The brief lived strong run by Jaroslav Janus came to a close. He allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SYR Palmieri, (28) (Deschamps, Green), 6:36 (PP)
    NOR Szczechura, (20) (Milam, Ritola), 9:13 (PP)
    SYR Maroon, (24) (Bonino, Holland), 12:21 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Maroon, (25) (Deschamps, Holland), 6:42 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Holland, (1) (Bonino, Palmieri), 5:11 (PP)
    NOR Labrie, (7) (Mihalik, Gudas), 9:05
    NOR Pouliot, (24) (Milam), 10:36 (PP)
    SYR Deschamps, (14) (Green), 19:35 (EN)

    Paul Szczechura became the 4th Admiral to reach the 20 goal mark this season.

    Norfolk gets nothing from its game in hand on Charlotte and Binghamton. They remain 3 points back of 3rd place Charlotte in the division and 1 point up on 5th place Binghamton. They need either 1 more point or a point lost by Connecticut to clinch the 3 seed in the Atlantic Division if they fall behind the Senators and enter the postseason via the crossover.
