    N.A. Juniors Playoff Game Night: 5/1

    Fargo falls to 7-1 in the playoffs, 1-1 in the Finals ... RBC Cup opens with host Victoria snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Cincinnati completed a four game sweep of the Elmira Jackals Friday night (5/1), with a Game Four 2-0 victory. Kevin Quick was -1 with 1 shot on goal in the matchup.

    Quick finished the playoffs with 1 assist and a -7 rating in 9 games. It remains one of the bizarre contradictions of Quick's career thus far. Quick drips offensive talent, and yet he has rarely found the scoresheet as a pro. Next season it will be critical for Quick to translate his athletic gifts to tangible production in the AHL.

    Fellow Lightning prospect Riku Helenius finished the postseason with an 0-1-0 record, a 6.91 GAA, and a .787 save percentage. Ugh. Helenius did a very good job in Norfolk after assuming the starting duties from Karri Ramo and Mike McKenna when Mike Smith and Olaf Kolzig got injured. His ugly two game stint in the ECHL playoffs should probably be treated as an unpleasant speed bump and nothing much more.

    Martins Karsums had 2 assists and was +3 with 3 shots on goal in 16:48 as Latvia stayed hot, crushing France 7-1.

    Karri Ramo did not suit up for Finland, which lost a shocker to Belarus 2-1 in a shootout. Janne Niskala had 1 goal and 5 shots on goal in 21:46 for the Finns. The game was Niskala's second of the tournament. He has 1 goal and 2 points with a +1 rating, 2 penalty minutes, and 9 shots on goal. He is also averaging 21:11 in ice time for Finland.

    Tomorrow could be quite the blood bath, as Norway runs into the buzzsaw, Canada, which has dominated in the tournament thus far.
