    N.A. Juniors Playoff Game Night: 4/23

    WHL Playoffs – Conference Finals

    Vancouver Giants 0 @ Kelowna Rockets 3
    Best of 7 series tied 2-2
    C James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Playoff totals: 15 GP, 3-7-10, +1, 6 PIM
    Season totals: 71 GP, 21-26-47, +26, 54 PIM

    Vancouver had 8 shots on goal in a scoreless first period, then managed just 6 (4, 2) the rest of the game for 14 total. That’s not the effort you want when you can sweep a team on the road and bring a 3-1 lead back home to potentially close out the series. As it was, Minnesota native Mark Guggenberger (undrafted) stopped those 14 shots for a shutout and Jamie Benn (Stars) had a goal and an assist to lead the Rockets to a 34-14 shot advantage and a 3-0 win. Game 5 is Saturday in Vancouver.

    The playoff seasons of Lightning prospects Riku Helenius and Kevin Quick will last at least another week as Elmira defeated Trenton in a decisive Game Seven matchup in Trenton 5-3 on Tuesday night.

    Helenius lost Game Two, allowing 6 goals on 38 shots in a 6-5 defeat. He has spent the rest of the series backing up Michael Teslak.

    Quick joined the club for a 5-0 shutout win in Game Three after finishing up the regular season with the Lightning in Atlanta. Quick is scoreless in 5 games with a -3 rating.

    Elmira now moves on to face Cincinnati in the second round of the playoffs, beginning Friday night. The Cyclones survived a 7 game encounter with Wheeling in their opening round playoff series. They were the top team in the ECHL's North Division during the regular season.

    WHL Playoffs – Conference Finals

    Kelowna Rockets 4 @ Vancouver Giants 2
    Kelowna leads Best of 7 series 1-0
    C James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -3, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Playoff totals: 12 GP, 3-5-8, +2, 6 PIM
    Season totals: 71 GP, 21-26-47, +26, 54 PIM

    Kelowna strikes first in the Western Conference Finals, gaining a 3-0 lead in game one and hanging on for the win. James Wright was a team-worst minus-3 for Vancouver, one of those being on the ice with likely top-5 pick Evander Kane and Conference MVP Casey Pierro-Zabotel (Penguins) in the game’s final minute for the empty net goal. Mikael Backlund (Flames) had two goals and an assist for First Star honors. Kelowna has won 5 straight games. Game 2 is Sunday in Vancouver.

    Lightning co-owner Len Barrie was reportedly set to be in attendance for the game. His son, Tyson, was scoreless for the Rockets. Tyson was drafted one spot ahead of Kane in the WHL Bantam Draft a few years ago.

    According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo will suit up for the Finns at the upcoming World Championships in Switzerland.

    Despite the numbers, Ramo was very good the last half of the year for Tampa Bay filling in for the injured Mike Smith. Ramo started the year in AHL Norfolk and recently graduated from prospect status here at Bolt Prospects.

    Ramo, pictured here with Finland's junior team in 2005, will be joined in the Finland nets by Nashville's Pekka Rinne. Ramo played last year for Finland as a back-up.
