    SM-liiga Quarterfinals (Finland):
    (5)Assat 1 @ (4)JYP 2
    JYP Leads the Series 2-0
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 31/32, 1.00 GAA, .969 sv%
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 0 SO, 1.00 GAA, .971 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 21-9-1, 7 SO, 1.64 GAA, .936 sv%

    You know you're playing amazing hockey as a goaltender when you stop 31 of 32 in a victory and your save percentage actually gets worse because of the effort. That's how embarrassingly well Riku Helenius has played in his first 2 games of the SM-liiga playoffs, though, helping to stake JYP to a 2-0 series lead. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin was the first star of Game Two, assisting on both of JYP's goals. Game Three is Monday.

    KHL Eastern Conference Semifinals (Russia):
    Caps first rounder Evgeny Kuznetsov had a pair of goals to lead Chelyabinsk to a series clinching 4-1 win over Kazan. Traktor takes the series 4-2. Nikita Nesterov did not play in the match. The KHL Eastern Conference Finals begin Thursday with Chelyabinsk facing Omsk and former Lightning netminder Karri Ramo, which was the 2 seed. The entire Eastern Conference bracket has been chalk so far.

    No. 14 Cornell Big Red 3 vs. No. 2 Michigan Wolverines 2 (OT)
    NCAA Midwest Regional Semifinal

    D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, , 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 1-6-7, +13, 12 PIM

    Upset city, baby! Cornell got an overtime winner from undrafted Rodger Craig (no, not that Roger Craig) to propel Cornell into the Midwest Regional finals against Ferris State, who beat Denver, 2-1.

    No. 13 UMass-Lowell Riverhawks 4 vs. No. 7 Miami RedHawks 3 (OT)
    NCAA East Regional Semifinal

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 11-15-26, +17, 10 PIM

    Another upset. The Riverhawks skated out to a 3-0 lead entering the third period before Miami decided to play, outshooting UML 18-8 in the final frame while scoring three times. Miami even had a five minute power play to end regulation, but they couldn’t get the game winner. That was scored by UML’s Riley Wetmore (undrafted), 2:13 into overtime. UML will face Union in the East Region finals for the right to go to the Frozen Four in Tampa. Union knocked off Michigan State, 3-1. Mullin ends an outstanding freshman season with 11 goals and 26 points. He spent the majority of the year on the RedHawks’ top line and will be relied upon for his offense next season in Oxford.

    USHL

    Omaha Lancers 1 @ Tri-City Storm 5

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 28 saves on 29 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 29 GP, 15-14-1, 2.89 GAA, .916 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox (pictured), the reigning USHL Goaltender of the Week, got another start for the Storm and got another first star award. Unofficially that’s about seven first stars in the last month. He’s given up only three goals in his last three games while stopping 100 shots. That’s pretty good. On Friday Wilcox stopped 28 of 29 against conference-leading Omaha. Tri-City stayed in fifth in the West with the two points, but put four points between them and seventh place Des Moines for the final playoff spot. The top-6 teams make the postseason in each conference.

    QMJHL

    16-Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4 @ 1-Saint John Sea Dogs 13
    QMJHL First Round – Saint John leads best of seven series 1-0

    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Saint John opened defense of their Memorial Cup title with a 13-4 thrashing of Cape Breton. The Sea Dogs outshot the Screaming Eagles 50-19 in the game. Cape Breton actually held a 2-1 lead midway through the first period before Saint John turned up the heat. Gauthier had four points in the game, which tied his playoff high set last year in 18 games. Impressive. Sharks first rounder (traded to Wild) and former Boston University star Charlie Coyle had a hat trick and three assists for the Sea Dogs. Also impressive. Game 2 is Saturday night.

    14-Gatineau Olympiques 1 @ 3-Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 5
    QMJHL First Round – Blainville-Boisbriand leads best of seven series 2-0

    Playoff Totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -6, 6 PIM
    Season Totals: 51 GP, 6-26-32, -13, 55 PIM

    The Armada took a commanding 2-0 series lead on Gatineau with a 5-1 win on Friday. They beat the Olympiques 7-2 in the series opener on Thursday. Janosik was scoreless and minus-4 in that game for the 14th seed.

    13-Baie-Comeau Drakkar 4 @ 4-Victoriaville Tigres 3

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Namestnikov scored what turned out to be the game winning goal in the first period off a great individual effort. He added a third period power play assist to help Michael Houser (undrafted) and the East’s top seed shut out Windsor in Game 1 of their opening round series, 3-0. Game 2 is Saturday. Namestnikov had five points in six playoff games last season.

    E1-Niagara IceDogs 6 @ E8-Oshawa Generals 1

    Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche scored for the second consecutive game and David Fischer and Matt Beca both had three assists each as Florida beat South Carolina for the second time this week, 5-2. All of Florida’s goals came in the second period.

    With the two points on Friday Florida moved to 79 points on the season, leapfrogging both South Carolina and Wheeling for fifth in the Eastern Conference. Florida plays the Stingrays again on Saturday.

    Brian Bradley.

    ALB-1
    NOR-2

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for his 11th straight victory. He's run his season save percentage to .911 and he's moved into the top-20 in the league in wins and may soon be free and clear into the top-10. That's right, the Admirals could have two goalies in the top-10 in the AHL in wins. Nice.

    First Period
    ALB Gelinas, (15) (Tedenby), 14:14 (PP)
    NOR Cote, (3) (Barberio, Picard), 14:32

    Second Period
    NOR Johnson, (28) (Panik, Palat), 12:08

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Janus and Richard Panik were the game's first and second stars. Panik attack, y'all!

    19. That's where the Norfolk win streak now sits (hence the Brian Bradley reference). They now are holders of every single regular season win streak record in the books in the AHL, even the not so terribly valid ones, snapping Syracuse's mult-season win streak record of 18 spread over two seasons. They go for an even 20 tomorrow, and the intriguing question will be whether Jon Cooper continues to ride Janus or if he goes back to freshly returned Dustin Tokarski between the pipes. Tokarski, for his part, still leads the AHL in wins despite his two week odyssey with the Lightning.

    9 games remain in the regular season for the Admirals. With the Penguins losing tonight, they'll stretch their division advantage to 12 points, with the Penguins holding 1 game in hand. So, another 3 or 4 wins probably will be enough to put the division away. In the conference, St. John's fell in the shootout to Syracuse, allowing the Admirals to expand their lead to 11 points over the IceCaps with St. John's holding 2 games in hand. Norfolk draws St. John's in Norfolk next week, giving the Admirals the chance to put the IceCaps on the canvas for good if they can take care of business.

    Shootout
    EDM- Gagner, Hemsky
    TB- Stamkos, St. Louis, Purcell

    Roloson and Tom Pyatt were the game's first and second stars.

    Belated congratulations to Tim Wallace, who graduated from Bolt Prospects prospect status in the Buffalo debacle.

    Keith Aulie was +1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 11:53. Made a great diving play to nullify a breakaway. Probably his best game in a Lightning jersey.

    Trevor Smith had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 15:44.

    J.T. Wyman had an assist and was +1 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 14:35.

    (4) JYP 4 @ (5) Assat 1

    South Carolina Stingrays 3 @ Florida Everblades 4

    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-1-1, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 2-6-8, +4, 10 PIM
    D Sebastien Piche, FLA: 1-0-1, E, 2 SOG, 0 PIM

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 19-14-0-3, 2.90 GAA, .903 sv%, 1 SO

    Florida blew a 2-0 first period lead, but rebounded to top the visiting Stingrays, 4-3. Lightning prospect Sebastien Piche (pictured), acquired from the Red Wings in the Kyle Quincey/Steve Downie trade, scored his first goal as a member of the Lightning organization. His second period marker gave the ‘Blades a brief 3-2 lead. Bolt prospect Charles Landry notched his first point in 11 games with the primary assist on Piche’s first ECHL goal of the year. Piche had 12 goals last year for ECHL Toledo while with the Red Wings organization. Piche returned on Wednesday from a suspension for a boarding major. Former Lightning draftee Kevin Quick, who is now on an AHL contract with Norfolk, was scoreless for the eighth straight game. Goaltender Pat Nagle was back with the Everblades after spending a couple weeks with AHL Norfolk while Admirals goaltender Dustin Tokarski was with NHL Tampa Bay.

    With the win, Florida tied South Carolina for third in the South Division standings, but more importantly tied them for sixth in the Eastern Conference standings at 77 points. Wheeling sits just ahead at 78 points. Florida is 8-2 in their last 10 games and now has an eight point cushion on ninth place Reading and Chicago. There are five games left in the regular season.
