    Atlantic-2 Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Atlantic-3 Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4
    First Round, Game 4. Moncton leads Best of 7 Series 3-1
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 1-4-5, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 65 GP, 17-43-60, +39, 72 PIM

    Cape Breton already had a 4-0 lead before Barberio set up rookie Alex Saulnier on the power play late in the game. The series now returns to Moncton, where the Wildcats can dispose of the Screaming Eagles on Saturday. Barberio has a five-game point streak going back to the last game of the regular season.

    East-1 Barrie Colts 6 @ East-8 Sudbury Wolves 3
    Conference Quarterfinals, Game 4. Barrie wins Best of 7 Series 4-0
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, +3, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 1-5-6, +6, 8 PIM
    Season Totals: 68 GP, 47-34-81, +44, 58 PIM
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 0 PIM [/i]
    Season Totals (OTT, SBY): 51 GP, 8-21-29, -3, 24 PIM

    Although Sudbury scored first in their quest to extend the series, the game was really never close as Barrie struck back for 3-1 and 6-2 leads before the Wolves scored late to give the game its final score. Hutchings earned a point in each game of the series, and has an eight-game point streak going back to the regular season. In fact, he’s earned a point in 20 of his last 21 games. Sointu’s first year in North America is complete, and although it starter rather slowly, his production really took off late in the season when he became a big part of Sudbury’s offense. Sointu was a 2008 seventh round pick. His immediate future is unknown.

    WHL

    West-2 Vancouver Giants 5 @ West-7 Kamloops Blazers 4
    Conference Quarterfinals, Game 4. Vancouver wins Best of 7 Series 4-0
    C/W/D James Wright, VAN: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 6-13-19, -3, 17 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    Wright set up the game winning goal when he found Brendan Gallagher (2010 eligible) with a pass with less than five minutes remaining in the third period. Gallagher split the Kamloops defense and potted the winner. The Giants had fallen behind 4-3 half-way through the third period, but battled back for another close win and completed the series sweep. While the 4-0 series win may look like a blowout, two of the games went to overtime and the final game was decided in the closing minutes.

    It's a pretty bitter pill to swallow.

    WBS-3
    NOR-0

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 34 shots for the loss. He deserved better. He played a brilliant first period and definitely gave the Admirals a chance to win the game. Other than the Pens' third goal, he has nothing to be ashamed about.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    WBS Conner, (20) (Wagner), 9:56 (SH)
    WBS Johnson, (16) (Letestu), 15:46
    WBS Lovejoy, (9) , 17:49 (PP)

    Tokarski was named the game's third star. Norfolk actually played a pretty strong defensive game for 55 minutes and only came unglued after the shorthanded goal by Chris Conner. I thought Ty Wishart and Scott Jackson's pair was particularly strong, especially when compared to the last game against the Penguins.

    Blair Jones may have a tough, sleepless night. He had a wide open chance in the slot on Thiessen that he missed by inches on the stick side when the game was 0-0 in the third that could have significantly altered the impact of the game. He later was involved in a vicious fight with Zach Sill in which both sides took some pretty big haymakers.

    The damage in the standings is ugly. In fact, it's the nightmare scenario. 2nd place Albany thumped Adirondack 6-2, extending their lead on the Admirals back to 8 points, with Norfolk now holding 2 games in hand. Wilke-Barre/Scranton leapfrogged 1 point ahead of Norfolk into 3rd in the East Division, meaning the Admirals are now in peril from the crossover rule. Over in the Atlantic, Manchester defeated Lowell, so now the 3rd place Monarchs are 3 points up on Norfolk with a game in hand and the 4th place Devils are 2 points up on Norfolk. Even worse, 5th place Bridgeport moved into a tie with the Devils by beating Syracuse 5-2, so if the playoffs started right now, Norfolk would be out and Bridgeport would cross over into the East Division to play division champ Hershey.

    Needless to say, Friday's game against the Pens is the most critical game of the year. With 8 games remaining this season, the Admirals can't afford to fall 3 points behind the Pens with the Pens holding a game in hand and feel good about their chances to get the 3rd seed in the division and avoid the crossover.

    It's all square now. Ex-Rangers draft pick Jan Marek had both goals for Magnitogorsk in a 2-1 Game Four win over Ak Bars Kazan. Magnitogorsk was outshot 24-20 in the match, but Magnitogorsk has Koshechkin, who now sports a monsterous .942 playoff save percentage. The other Lightning prospect in the game, Dmitri Kazionov, played 17:13 in the match.

    Tomorrow, the Western Conference series' will be back in action with Game Five contests. With the exception of the Dynamo Riga/KHK MVD series, which Riga trails 3-1, all of the other playoff series are now knotted at 2-2 a piece.

    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 1-3-4, +2, 0 PIM

    Moncton defenseman David Savard (Blue Jackets 4/09) scored at 14:53 of the first overtime to give the Wildcats a road win and a commanding 3-0 series lead over Cape Breton. Barberio set up Nicolas Deschamps (Ducks 2/08) early in the second period to give Moncton a 2-0 lead they’d relinquish late in the third period.

    Vancouver took a huge step toward securing their first round series with Kamloops when Brett Breitkreuz (undrafted), acquired earlier in the year from Edmonton, scored at 2:28 of overtime to give the Giants a road win and 3-0 series lead. Wright is still looking for his first point of the playoffs, but was named the Game’s No.3 star – on the road, no less.

    The Lightning deal a blow to their chances of landing Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin.

    Overtime
    TB 0:29, St. Louis 26 (Meszaros, Lundin)

    All kidding aside, congratulations to Steve Downie on scoring his 20th goal of the season. Apparently that makes Downie the NHL's first 20 goal/200 PIM player since Theo Fleury did it with the Rangers in 2001-2002. He's a rare and special player, and he's going to get better, which should scare the rest of the league half to death.

    Martin St. Louis is 4 goals shy of 30. He's played so well all season. I'd love to see him get there.

    Wow. Facing the prospect of falling into a 3-0 hole in the series, Vasily Koshechkin pitched a 37 save shutout to help Magnitogorsk pull off a 1-0 overtime victory in Game Three. Petri Kontiola scored off a Stan Chistov assist with just 5 seconds remaining in the first overtime session to seal the deal. Dmitri Kazionov played a scoreless 24:50 in the match for Kazan. Can we please get some of what was in Koshechkin's water bottle for Tokarski for the two big games the Admirals have coming up against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this week?

    Game Four tomorrow.

    (8)Dynamo Riga 4 @ (2)KHK MVD 5 (OT)
    KHK MVD Leads the Series 3-1
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM, 3 SOG

    Playoff totals: 8 GP, 2-1-3, -1, 4 PIM

    Ex-NHLer and KHL goal scoring champion Marcel Hossa scored a tying goal with less than 1 minute remaining in regulation, but Evgeni Fedorov scored a goal 2:33 into the second overtime to help KHK MVD win 5-4. The win puts Cindarella Riga on the brink of elimination. Lightning prospect Martins Karsums scored a goal early in the 2nd period and took a second period elbowing minor in 23:42 of ice time.

    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 1 SO, 1.50 GAA, .946 sv%

    So far, so good for Sodertalje in the Swedish relegation/promotion series. The club got 1 goal and 1 assist from ex-Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux and 2 assists from ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll in today's match to defeat Allsvenskan team AIK. Next up for Sodertalje: Leksands, which was briefly promoted to the Elitserien for the 2005-2006 season, but has been relegated to the Allsvenskan ever since. That match will take place Thursday.

    Done.

    TB-2
    FLA-5

    Mike Smith allowed 5 goals on 40 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TB 6:04, Downie 19 (unassisted)
    FLA 14:12, Horton 18 (Stillman, Weiss)(PP)
    FLA 17:42, Booth 6 (Bitz, Ballard)

    FLA 4:03, Weiss 25 (Allen, Ballard)
    FLA 15:34, Dvorak 12 (Garrison)

    I'm mildly pleased that Steve Downie scored his 19th goal and is now one shy of the 20 goal plateau. Other than that, there's not a lot of positives to take away from this game.

    I see Mark Parrish was out of this lineup for this game. I hope the Lightning will send him down to Norfolk to help their playoff drive. I also see Matt Smaby was held out of a second straight game with David Hale returning. I don't know the rules governing conditioning stints after Clear Day, but I'd sure love to see Smabes get one Wednesday and Friday.

    In case you're wondering about draft position, the Lightning now have the 3rd worst record in the league. They won't "catch" the worst, Edmonton, but if trends hold up the Leafs will probably make up the 4 points necessary to put the Lightning back into second-to-last again for a second straight season. This is considered a two-superstar draft (Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin) so perhaps if the Lightning continue to slide there's a silver lining (presuming ping pong balls bounce favorably for a third straight year).

    Magnitogorsk switched to backup Ilya Proskuryakov for Game Two of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series, but the results were the same as Metallurg now finds themselves in a 2-0 series hole. Lightning prospect Dmitri Kazionov opened the scoring for Kazan in the 2nd period and took a hooking minor in 14:45 of ice time. But, it wasn't until less than 2 minutes left in the game when former Penguin Alexei Morozov notched the game winning goal that the outcome was finally decided. The scene now switches to Magnitogorsk for Game Three of the seven game series.

    Tomorrow features Game Three between Riga and KHK MVD with Riga down 2-0 in the series. Elsewhere today, Nizhnekamsk evened up their Eastern Conference Semifinal series 1-1 with Yulaev with a 2-1 overtime win.

Sodertalje won despite being outshot 28-19 in the contest. The club got goals from former Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux and ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll. On Tuesday, Sodertalje faces Allsvenskan team AIK.
