    Oshawa Generals 3 @ Peterborough Petes 2

    D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 26 GP, 4-16-20, -21, 20 PIM

    Slater Koekkoek scored his fourth goal of the season late in the game to cut Oshawa’s lead to 3-2, but the Petes couldn’t complete the comeback. With his 20th point of the season, Koekkoek is approaching his career high of 23, set two years ago in 65 games. He has already matched his career high for assists at 16, also set two years ago. Unfortunately, he is also approaching his career “low” of minus-29, which was also set in his rookie season. Koekkoek’s minus-21 rating is the lowest its been all season. He is two ratings points ahead of Belleville’s Jake Cardwell for last in the league. The closest player to him on the Petes is Francis Menard at minus-15. Peterborough has lost five games in a row and nine of their last 10.

    As team captain and arguably its top player, Koekkoek plays a ton of minutes on a team that’s last in the league in points and second-last in goals scored. That’s a recipe for a plus/minus disaster. It's highly unlikely that Lightning GM Steve Yzerman is even remotely worried about his top pick in 2012.

    Victor Hedman, Astana 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 19 GP, 0-18-18, +14, 52 PIM

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 1 @ Lukko 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 2.05 GAA, 25/27 (.926 SV%)
    Season totals: 8 GP, 2-5-1, 0 SO, 3.18 GAA, 252/278 (.906 SV%)

    Ilves squandered another sharp effort from Anders Lindback again, falling in regulation to Lukko after nearly being shutout until former Lightning draftee Matias Sointu scored to bring Ilves within a goal with just under two minutes remaining. Lukko scored the insurance goal soon after with Lindback pulled for the extra-attacker. Lindback has now posted a .910+ SV% in five of the eight starts, including the last four, he has made since joining his club. Excluding his second start against SaiPa during which he was blown up for seven goals, Lindback has posted a 2.65 GAA and .920 SV% on average backstopping the league's worst team. Ilves (4-15-3-3, 21 points) is off until Friday when they will host fourth-place Kalpa (11-7-5-4, 47 points), which is only, at the moment, a regulation victory from co-leading the league.

    Season totals: 8 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 6 PIM

    Mikael Backlund got back in the scoring column with an empty netter with time all but expired but Vasteras only narrowly managed a victory against Orebro as the visiting squad mounted a vigorous comeback attempt, scoring twice on fifteen shots while dictating play, in the third period.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 5 vs. Linkopings 0

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 27 GP, 10-5-15, +3, 31 PIM

    Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist stopped all thirty-three shots he faced and Sebastian Enterfeldt scored twice to lead Brynas, which had lost its last five home games, to a decisive shutout victory over visiting Linkopings. As a result, the gap between the two clubs in the league's standings narrowed to just three points. Johan Harju's power play goal early in the third period bolstered the home club's lead to 3-0. On the play, Harju skated unmarked between two defenders to the edge of the crease as the puck was muscled into the opposing corner behind the net to Jonas Nordquist. There, with attention fully on him, Nordquist fed a crisp pass that found Harju's sticktape which, with a half-empty net to place the puck, made for an easy tap-in. Brynas (10-8-3-6, 42 PTS) hosts Vaxjo (6-12-6-3, 33 PTS), which has lost six-straight to Brynas, on Thursday.

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM

    Vasteras came into the final period down two scores but Patrick Berglund and Matt Fornataro, formerly of the Bolts organization, gave the visiting squad two power play markers just minutes apart to send the game into overtime where Tim Heed would score the game-winner that put Vasteras on top. Fornataro also had two assists in the match. Aside from a single shot, Brendan Mikkelson was essentially blanked after scoring twice against Leksands last Tuesday. Vasteras (13-7-3-1, 46 PTS) returns home to face Orebro (11-8-2-3, 40 PTS) on Tuesday.

    Season totals: 27 GP, 2-10-12, -8, 22 PIM

    Sudbury’s Joel Vienneau (undrafted) stopped 34 shots as the Wolves shut out Brampton, 2-0. This was not a good loss for the Battalion, who were eight points ahead of last-place Sudbury when the game started.

    D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 24 GP, 1-5-6, E, 29 PIM
