    Ontario Hockey League

    Barrie Colts 0 @ Owen Sound Attack 1

    D Jake Dotchin, OS: Did not play
    Season totals: 23 GP, 1-4-5, E, 29 PIM

    Jordan Binnington (Blues) had his third-consecutive shutout, stopping 36 shots to lead the Attack to a 1-0 win over the league’s top team. Jake Dotchin was suspended for being involved in the second fight to occur during one stoppage of play during his last game (below).

    Guelph Storm 8 @ Mississauga Steelheads 0

    C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-3-3, +3, 4 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 22 GP, 2-28-30, +9, 54 PIM

    Tanner Richard had his second 3-assist night in his last three outings as Guelph put a snowman on the scoreboard in Mississauga, 8-0. Richard has three 3-assist games this season. His plus-3 night was the second-highest of the season for him so far. The 2012 third round pick moved back into a tie with Ryan Strome (Niagara/Islanders) for the league lead in assists.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 3 @ Blues 4

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 4.09 GAA, 43/47 (.914 SV%)
    Season totals: 6 GP, 1-4-1, 0 SO, 3.81 GAA, 181/204 (.887 SV%)

    Anders Lindback followed up an impressive showing in a close loss to Assat on Friday night with a solid performance in yet another narrow defeat Wednesday night. After falling behind 3-1 in the first period, Ilves rallied, with goals from Matias Chord and Maxime Talbot, to send the game tied into the final frame but Niko Nieminen's second goal of the night with just over ten minutes remaining in the game proved ended up being the game-winner for the Blues, which ran the league's worst team ragged for the better part of the game. In so doing, the Blues kept Lindback busy with nearly 70 shot attempts, 47 of which made it on net, all the while limiting Ilves to 44 attempts and 23 actual shots on goal. Ilves (4-14-2-3, 19 points) has little time to dwell on this latest loss as they face TPS (4-10-5-4, 26 points), a team that has struggled almost as much as Ilves has so far this season, on Thursday.

    HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden)
    Vasteras 5 vs. Leksands 6 (OT)

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 2-0-2, E, 6 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 6 GP, 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM

    Patrik Berglund, who had another monster night (2 G, 2A), scored just 42 seconds in and Vasteras jumped out to a 3-0 lead halfway through the first period but Leksands battled back and even took the lead heading into the final frame before eventually winning in the shootout. What was a showdown between two of the league's top clubs was certainly entertaining from an offensive standpoint as both teams racked up a combined ten goals and 93 shots on goal in regulation. Locked-out Lightning D Brendan Mikkelson scored his first goals of the season, his first staking Vasteras to an early 2-0 lead while his second, a power play tally that tied the game with just under eight minutes left in regulation, he scored by drifting into the high slot and quickly snapping home a loose rebound. Vasteras (13-7-2-1, 44 PTS) is next in action on Sunday against Asploven (7-13-1-1, 24 PTS), which currently shares the third-worst record in the league.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 1 @ AIK 2 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-1-1, +1, 2 SOG, 2 PIM (slashing)
    Season totals: 24 GP, 8-5-13, +4, 31 PIM

    Brynas ran up an impressive 39-19 shot advantage but was repeatedly stymied by AIK netminder Daniel Larsson and ultimately came up short on the road Tuesday in what was its second-consecutive overtime loss. This time, though, Brynas met its demise in the shootout thanks to the hands and creativity of Niklas Jensen, selected 29th overall in the 2011 by the Vancouver Canucks. On the game-winning attempt, Jensen pulled a backhand deke back to his forehand in one slick motion before, with a quick release, tucking the puck just inside the blocker-side post and past Robin Rahm. Harju, who scored on the initial attempt of the shootout, registered a secondary assist on the game-tying goal by Calle Jarnkrok a few minutes into the second. Brynas (9-7-3-5, 38 PTS) returns home to face Farjestads (10-7-3-4, 40 PTS) on Thursday.

    3 games in 3 nights. 3 wins. 16 total goals.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on just 19 shots, but got the win to run his season record to 7-1-0-1.

    First Period
    SYR Gudas, (1) (Panik), 12:04
    HER Taffe, (5) (Kundratek, Stafford), 15:33 (PP)
    SYR Taormina, (2) (Connolly, Brown), 17:46

    HER Hamill, (4) (Berry, Kane), 15:21

    Radko Gudas (pictured), Brett Connolly, and Richard Panik were the game's three stars. Gudas' night was an uncharacteristic offensive outburst of 1 goal and 2 assists to double his overall point total for the season.

    The Panik attack has now lasted 7 games, and he now has 5 goals and 9 points in those 7 games. After a slow October where he had 3 points in 7 games, Panik's now run his overall statistics to 6 goals and 12 points in 14 games, as he stalks a point a game.

    Syracuse is now 10-2-1-1 through their first 14 games. Their 22 points gives them a 6 point cushion right now in the East Division. They've also managed to tied Springfield for the best record in the Eastern Conference, and their 54 goals are 5 clear of the next best team in the conference, as well.

    Syracuse draws Binghamton at home next on Friday night to start another 3 games in 3 nights weekend.
