    WHL

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    No.7 Chilliwack Bruins 2 @ No.2 Spokane Chiefs 4
    Spokane leads best of seven series 3-1

    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 71 GP, 53-62-115, +27, 48 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 2-2-4, +1, 0 PIM

    Johnson missed the game due to an injury sustained when he was elbowed by Chilliwack’s Tyler Stahl in the second period of Game 3. Stahl was suspended for Thursday’s game. No timetable has been given for Johnson’s return. Spokane was able to overcome not playing with the WHL’s leading goal scorer and second leading point producer in Game 4, but unless Johnson returns, their shot at the conference and/or league titles is in jeopardy. The Bruins have their own distractions now since there are heavy rumors the team is moving to Victoria, B.C. after being sold. The Chiefs can close it out Saturday at home in Game 5.

    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals

    No.1 Saskatoon Blades 2 @ No.8 Prince Albert Raiders 5
    Best of seven series tied 2-2

    Season Totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2 +1, 6 PIM

    The WHL’s top team, Saskatoon, now finds themselves tied with upstart Prince Albert 2-2 in their conference quarterfinals series. The Raiders outshot the Blades by a wide margin (41-30) for the second straight game. Game 5 is Saturday in Saskatoon.

    Bugsy returns!

    PIT-1
    TB-2

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 1 goal on 37 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    04:51 TB Downie (9), Gagne (19), Stamkos (45)
    10:13 TB St Louis (30), Lecavalier (28), Hedman (23)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    04:31 PIT Rupp (7), Kovalev (16)

    Roloson, Martin St. Louis, and Steve Downie were the game's three stars.

    First the Lightning got Downie back, and with Ryan Malone now back the team has its full measure of sandpaper, forechecking, and net front presence back in the lineup. Whether they have enough time to get everything tuned up for the postseason in the 5 games remaining in the regular season, especially if Malone sits out another couple of games as a coach's precaution, I don't know. I do know that when the Lightning have physical edge, they're frightening.

    I also know that while I respect Pittsburgh, I don't fear them. It'll be a tough series whether the Lightning have home ice or not and whether Crosby's back or not, but it's winnable for the Lightning. And with the Lightning just 3 points back of the Pens with 1 game in hand, the plot certainly thickens as far as getting the 4th seed. An extra home game used to mean about $1M bucks in gross revenue from the gate to the franchise about 15 years ago. I don't know what it's worth now, but I'm sure it's better than a kick in the teeth.

Landry finished the series plus-6. The top four teams in the Q all swept their opponents, as did No.11 seed Victoriaville, who swept the Titan 4-0. In this new format, all teams are re-seeded in the second round, so the Juniors will play the second-lowest seed to come out; likely No.8 Lewiston, who is up 3-1 on Moncton.

Vancouver, needing a win to stay alive, only registered 18 shots in the game as they went out with a whimper. Ashton’s goal came in the late first period on the power play.

Connolly missed all but half of a period in the series due to a shoulder separation. If he’s healthy, he can join the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL since Prince George is finished, but that’s a big “if” and Lightning GM Steve Yzerman may not want him rushing back into play to risk further injury. Despite missing a couple weeks with a knee injury, it was a successful year for Connolly, who flirted with 50 goals and played for Team Canada at the World Junior Tournament. Yzerman told the Tampa Tribune recently Connolly must get stronger if he is to play at the NHL level. Next year Connolly will either be back in Prince George or in Tampa with the Lightning as he cannot begin a season in the AHL until 2012, after he turns 20.

Spokane had just scored to go up 3-0 when the incident occurred. Johnson, who had an assist on the goal being scored when the hit took place, is listed as questionable for Game 4. Stahl was given a major penalty and game misconduct and now faces a possible suspension. The Bruins scored the game’s next four goals. Kevin Sundher (Sabres) had both the game tying and overtime winning goals for the Bruins. Game 4 is Thursday in Spokane. The series is following a 2-3-1-1-1 format.

    South Carolina Stingrays 1 @ Florida Everblades 4
    LW Alex Hutchings: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM (spearing attempt), 4 SOG
    Season totals: 48 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 37 PIM
    G Jaroslav Janus: Did not play (backup)
    Season totals: 27 GP, 12-13-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .912 sv%, 0 SO

    The ‘Blades pulled ahead of South Carolina and Wheeling for fourth in the East after beating the Stingrays 4-1 in the first game of a three game set to finish the regular season. It’s possible these teams could play 10 games in a row as they could be meeting each other in the first round of the playoffs. South Carolina is currently in sixth, but just two points behind Florida and one behind Wheeling. All have played 70 games. Alex Hutchings scored his 13th goal of the season then ignited a brawl of sorts after the play by attempting to spear an opponent. Jarsolav Janus sat backup to Mike Zacharias (34/35) in his latest return to the ECHL from Norfolk.

    Comeback falls just short.

    NOR-3
    WBS-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    WBS Sterling, (24) (Hutchinson), 2:22 (PP)
    NOR Jones, (21) (Ritola, Berry), 8:43
    WBS Veilleux, (9) (Walker, Potter), 14:44 (PP)
    WBS Sterling, (25) (Lerg, Hutchinson), 18:53 (PP)
    WBS Craig, (19) , 19:38

    Second Period
    NOR Milam, (14) (Ritola, Harju), 8:26 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Ritola, (3) (Roy, Pouliot), 11:42

    Mattias Ritola was the game's second star.

    For those wondering, Pat Nagle was Tic's backup tonight.

    Norfolk burned up a very critical game in hand that they really needed to cash in. They sit at 88 points, 6 back of 2nd place Hershey, 3 back of 3rd place Charlotte, and 1 up on 5th place Binghamton. They now hold 2 games in hand on the Bears and Checkers, and 1 game in hand on the Senators. The good news is, the Admirals to face the Bears twice this weekend, so a couple of wins would put them in decent position to overtake Hershey. They're also still 8 points up on the Atlantic's 4th place team, Worcester, in the crossover, which is the safety net for the Admirals, and they have a game in hand on the Sharks. There are 7 games remaining in the regular season, and if the season ended tonight, Norfolk would be traveling to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to play these same Penguins in the opening round.

    Sodertalje 1 @ Orebro 4
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 2 GP, 0-0-1, 0 SO, 3.00 GAA, .800 sv%

    Sodertalje is in trouble. Orebro scored 3 unanswered 3rd period goals to defeat the Elitserien club 4-1 today in the 7th round of the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation tournament. With 3 games left to go, Sodertalje now sits in 3rd place, 2 points behind Allsvenskan side Rogle and 6 points behind another Allsvenskan side, Vaxjo. If the Kval till Elitserien ended today, Sodertalje would be relegated to the Allsvenskan. Complicating matters is Sodertalje's razor-thin tiebreaker lead over MODO, which is the other Elitserien club in the tournament. Sodertalje faces Rogle on Sunday in what is, essentially, a must-win for the club. A regulation loss for Sodertalje would make keeping their spot in Sweden's top league a near impossibility. It's hard to believe this is the same club that came within an eyelash of making the Elitserien playoffs just a few weeks ago.

    Season Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 1-2-3, -2, 4 PIM

    Janosik’s sixth career playoff goal wasn’t enough as Rimouski got back in the series with a big home win over Gatineau. Game 4 is Wednesday in the former home of Vincent Lecavalier, Brad Richards, and Sidney Crosby.

    No.2 Montreal Juniors 2 @ No.15 Halifax Mooseheads 0

Landry’s plus-5 rating is tied for second on the club in the playoffs. Game 4 is Wednesday in Halifax.

    He’s back! Geoffrey Schemitsch (pictured) played his first game since breaking his arm February 10. He did not register a point, but helped the Attack to an important Game 3 home win over upset-minded London. Game 4 is Thursday in London.

    Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM

    The Ams scored once in the late second period and three more times in the third period to beat the Giants in Vancouver 4-0 and take a commanding 3-0 series lead. Ashton hasn’t registered a point since scoring the winner in overtime in Game 1. Game 4 is Wednesday in B.C.

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    No.2 Kelowna Rockets 7 @ No.7 Prince George Cougars 6
    Kelowna leads best of seven series 3-0

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: Did not play (injured - shoulder)
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Prince George put up a good fight, outshooting Kelowna 41-29, but didn’t get the goaltending they needed and fell 7-6. Connolly, who is publicly considered day-to-day with an upper body injury (shoulder separation), has not played since the opening period of Game 1. His season and possibly junior career is now potentially one game away from being over. (Note: His junior career would be over if he made the Lightning next season. He is not eligible to begin a season in the AHL until 2012. He could join AHL Norfolk – if healthy – this season when the Cougars are finished).

    OTT-2
    TB-5

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the win. 1 of those goals was a kick-in that should've been waved off by Toronto.

    15:15 OTT Michalek (17), Kuba (12), Spezza (31)(SH)
    19:26 TB Stamkos (44), Hall (10), Moore (13)(EN)

    Martin St. Louis, Dominic Moore, and Simon Gagne were the game's three stars.

    Good signs abounded in this game. Vincent Lecavalier and Simon Gagne continue to play their best hockey of the year. Martin St. Louis looks to be back on track. And, the most encouraging sign is that Steven Stamkos played his best game tonight in, gosh, a month to a month and a half? Took 12 shots, 8 hit the net, and he only got credit for 1 hit but it seemed like he played with more jam and hustle than he has in forever. He even pulled the trigger twice on the one-timer from the left circle on the PP. He was rewarded with the third highest ice time on the team behind St. Louis and Lecavalier tonight. If he plays the last 6 games of the regular season like that, he might just eke out the Richard Trophy after all.

Sodertalje plays Orebro on Wednesday, and with 4 games left to go they are in peril of relegation.
