    Back from the Olympic Break...

    Omsk 3 @ Dynamo Riga 5
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 1-1-2, +4, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 10 GP, 3-3-6, +6, 14 PIM

    Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 20/24, 4.03 GAA, .833 sv%
    Season totals: 42 GP, 21-16, 4 SO, 2.10 GAA, .913 sv%

    Fresh off a solid performance for Latvia in the Olympics, Karsums had 1 goal and 1 assist in 20:26 in a solid drubbing on Avangard Omsk. KHL goal scoring leader Marcel Hossa scored his 33rd and 34th goal of the season in the match for Riga.

    Yulaev 3 @ Dynamo Moscow 0
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 7 SOG
    Season totals: 54 GP, 4-14-18, -10, 38 PIM

    Harju led Dynamo in shots on goal in 12:34 but could not crack former NHLer Vitaly Kolesnik in their 3-0 shutout loss to the East's first place team, Yulaev. Harju was 54% on draws in the match.

    Cherepovets 1 @ Magnitogorsk 2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 24/25, 1.00 GAA, .960 sv%
    Season totals: 47 GP, 25-14, 8 SO, 1.89 GAA, .929 sv%

    Former Coyotes first round pick Viktor Tikhonov scored his 14th goal of the season in support of Koshechkin in Magnitogorsk's 2-1 win.

    Mytischi 3 @ Ekaterinburg 2 (SO)
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG

    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 50 GP, 18-8-26, +9, 16 PIM

    The elder Kazionov played 15:17 in the match for Kazan.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 0
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM, 6 SOG
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 13-42-55, +39, 64 PIM

    Barberio scored what turned out to be the game winner less than five minutes into the first period. The ‘Cats would add another goal less than a minute later, then hold the Eagles off the scoresheet for the rest of the game. Moncton has won eight straight.

    OHL

    Barrie Colts 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 5 (OT)
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 44-30-74, +41, 52 PIM
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 7-15-22, -6, 16 PIM
    With Sudbury: 23 GP, 4-8-12, -11, 10 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    Hutchings scored his 44th goal of the year at 2:45 of overtime to give the Colts the road win and extend his point streak to 11 games. He has goals in six straight. This was his 11th game winning goal of the season, tying him with Ottawa's Cody Lindsay (undrafted) for the league lead. Sointu’s two assists gave him his first multi-point game since January 31. Sointu finished February with no goals and three assists in 10 games. Hutchings had 10 goals and five assists in 12 February games.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 2 @ Swift Current Broncos 5
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 23-26-49, -5, 100 PIM
    With Regina: 32 GP, 10-13-23, +3, 48 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    That’s two huge losses to the eighth-place Broncos in the last week for Regina, which drops them 11 points back of Swift Current with five games remaining. That means they’re officially done. No word yet as to why Ashton was scratched. If he’s healthy, there’s a good chance he joins AHL Norfolk when the Pats are finished with their season. I’d also expect (and look forward to seeing) Jordan Eberle join the Oilers.

    Season circling the drain?

    PHI-7
    TB-2

    I've never seen a defense and goaltender play worse in a period than the Lightning played in the third tonight. And, it wasn't just the rookie Hedman. Matias Ohlund got his lunch money stolen on the first goal of the period that set the Lightning on their heels and on their way to getting embarassed. I don't get it. I don't get how a team can hold it together and play well for 40 minutes and then mentally check out in the third when the stakes are so high.

    D Kirill Gotovets, Shattuck-St. Mary’s, USHS
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 8-16-24, 71 PIM

    Gotovets, a Cornell commit, had five points after 14 games, but has 19 points in his last 26, including nine in his last 10. His 71 PIM are second on the club. Shattuck was 39-9-4 entering play this past weekend (results TBA).

  • 5 years 8 weeks ago

    Sodertalje 2 @ Rogle 1
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, Win, 30/31, 1.00 GAA, .968 sv%
    Season totals: 6 GP, 2-1-2, 0 SO, 2.46 GAA, .919 sv%

    Former Lightning draft pick Eric Beaudoin had an assist on Rogle's only goal. There are 5 games remaining in the Elitserien regular season. Sodertalje is on the brink of elimination, 12 points behind 8th place Lulea. In the Elitserien, a regulation win is worth 3 points in the standings.

    QMJHL

    Halifax Mooseheads 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 7
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 57 GP, 12-42-54, +38, 54 PIM

    If any win over your rival is a good win, then any weekend sweep of your rival ending with a blowout win is Christmas. While Barberio is eight points better than he has ever been in his QMJHL career, he’s three goals shy of his career high for goals, set last year in 66 games.

    OHL

    Windsor Spitfires 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 0
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (holding, cross-checking)
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 7-13-20, -6, 16 PIM
    With Sudbury: 22 GP, 4-6-10, -11, 10 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    The Spits destroyed Sudbury 6-0, outshooting them 40-16. Likely 2010 first overall pick Taylor Hall only managed two assists in the game. Hall is now at 95 points (36 goals) for the season (54 games). The Wolves are tied for seventh in the East.

    Oshawa Generals 4 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 7
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 24 saves on 31 shots
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

    Oshawa is now the worst defensive team in the league with 270 goals against in 62 games. My calculator tells me that's 4.35 goals against per game, yet Zador’s GAA has just now topped the 4.00 mark. Despite their lack of defense, the Gens are just two points back of Niagara for the eighth spot in the East.

    Boston University Terriers 2 @ No.18 Vermont Catamounts 3
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 1-4-5, -3, 14 PIM

    Vermont (15-11-6) completed a weekend sweep of the Terriers.

    Don Simek makes sure the Crunch will sleep with the fishes.

    NOR-3
    SYR-2

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Simek, (17) (Lashoff, Tarkir), 4:21 (PP)
    NOR Tyrell, (5) (Lashoff, Parrish), 19:40

    Second Period
    SYR Bell, (10) (MacKenzie), 2:26 (PP)
    SYR LaVallee-Smotherman, (6) (Sestito, Frischmon), 19:32

    Third Period
    NOR Simek, (18) (Szczechura, Mihalik), 15:54

    Juraj Simek and Matt Lashoff were the game's first and second stars. Simek, the Don of the Presov Mafia, is now 2 goals shy of the first 20 goal season of his AHL career and has had multi-point nights in each of the past two games.

    Vladimir Mihalik, the Luca Brasi of the family, assisted on Simek's winner and finishes the month of February at +13 with 6 out of 11 games at +2 or better. He had only one minus game the entire month, and had 2 goals and 5 points, too. He's now 2 points shy of his AHL career high of 16 points set in his rookie season.

    Norfolk moves back into a tie for 2nd in the East Division at 70 points with Albany. The Rats are losing 4-2 late in the third period to Portland as of this posting. If that score holds up, all will be square with Albany holding 1 game in hand. Norfolk picked up 1 point on 4th place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, which lost in a shootout to Hershey 2-1. They are now 7 points back of the Admirals with 3 games in hand. Norfolk also picks up 2 points on idle Adirondack, which is 10 points back with 3 games in hand. The Crunch are now 12 points back with 2 games in hand, but are on a 2 game losing streak and sub-.500 in their last 10 games. They're falling out of the mix quickly. Binghamton is being fitted for a toe tag. They're now 20 points behind the Admirals and not even 6 games in hand can save them.

    In the crossover, the Atlantic's 5th and 6th place teams, Bridgeport and Providence, are idle, so Norfolk is now 7 points up on Bridgeport and 9 points up on Providence with the Sound Tigers holding 1 game in hand and the Bruins holding 3 games in hand. Hartford, which is tied in points with Providence, is down 3-1 to Lowell in the 2nd period as of this posting. They'll burn one of their 2 games in hand they hold over the Admirals, win, lose, or draw tonight. If the Admirals were to fall to 4th in the East Division, they would have to finish above the 5th place team in the Atlantic Division to make the postseason.

    So, it was a critical weekend, and the Admirals got their minimum requisite 4 of 6 points and came 1 goal shy of really burying the Phantoms' playoff chances too. That leaves Norfolk in a very nice position schedule-wise for the rest of the season. The Admirals have just 5 games left on the road and 12 games left at the friendly confines of The Scope left on the schedule. That's a potentially huge advantage for the Admirals down the stretch. Compare that to Albany, which has just 7 home games left this season.

    And, on a very nice note, the Admirals' win tonight places them at 19-13-3 this season on the road, so they've clinched a better than .500 road record. That's pretty impressive for a team that was 10 games under .500 away from Scope last year. Their 33 wins also ties their win total of all last year and they are just 5 points shy of their point total for all last season, too. The corner is being turned. It'll be interesting to see if the Admirals can finish off this run they're on and clinch home ice for the first round of the playoffs, and if they'll be able to utilize some of the Lightning's best prospects as ATO's once their junior seasons are over to help push the team over the top in the postseason.

    Expect a couple of moves with the Lightning returning to work on Tuesday. Janus heading back down seems a certainty, and my money is on Parrish moving back up as well.

    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 12-40-52, +37, 54 PIM

    Any win over your rival is a good win. In the game, Moncton goalie Nicola Riopel (Flyers 5/09) allowed his first goal in his last 179min 59sec played. It was the second longest shutout streak in the QMJHL history behind Mathieu Chouinard (Chicoutimi) in 97-98.

    OHL

    Kingston Frontenacs 5 @ Belleville Bulls 4 (OT)
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season Totals: 54 GP, 16-16-32, +4, 39 PIM
    With Bulls: 21 GP, 7-7-14, -11, 20 PIM
    With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 18-14-32, -19, 47 PIM
    With Bulls: 43 GP, 16-13-29, -17, 29 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    Both Lightning prospects broke personal three-game scoreless streaks.

    Niagara IceDogs 1 @ Barrie Colts 6
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 61 GP, 43-29-72, +41, 52 PIM

    Already with a career high for goals and points, Hutchings is starting to flirt with the 50-goal plateau.

    WHL

    Regina Pats 3 @ Saskatoon Blades 0
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 23-26-49, -5, 100 PIM
    With Regina: 32 GP, 10-13-23, +3, 48 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Ashton hasn’t scored a goal in eight games. A day after losing an important road game to eighth-place Swift Current, the Pats shutout the conference’s top team (tied) in their own barn, holding them to 19 shots. Swift Current also won, however, so Regina remains a seemingly insurmountable nine points back of a playoff spot.

    Vancouver Giants 3 @ Swift Current Broncos 5
    C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 4-10-14, -1, 4 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    The Giants have now lost two in a row. Wright hasn’t registered a point in his last three games and is minus-six during that time.
