    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 4 vs. Blues 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, W, 3.00 GAA, 16/19 (.842 SV%)
    Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-1, 0 SO, 4.22 GAA, 86/99 (.867 SV%)

    After being roughed up by SaiPa on Thursday night, Tampere rallied from a goal down in the third period to edge past Espoo Saturday for Anders Lindback's first win with his new club. Ilves enjoyed nearly twice as many shots as the Blues in the game and Lindback was sparely tested until the third period when the Blues hit double-digits in shots. Michael Keranen led the way for Tampere with an early goal and an assist (along with Mikael Kuronen) on Matias Chord's game-winner with roughly ten minutes left in regulation. Ilves heads into the November break with a league-worst 19 total points and does not play again until the Tuesday after next (the 13th) when they will face a formidable Oulu Karpat squad that is currently in third-place with 37 points but only a single point out of first.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 0 vs. Frolunda 4

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 20 GP, 7-3-10, E, 29 PIM

    Locked-out Chicago Blackhawk Victor Stalberg (2 G, 1 A, 4 SOG) and former Dallas Star and Detroit Red Wing Fabian Brunnstrom (1 G, 1 A, 4 SOG) led Frolunda to a decisive victory over Toronto's Cody Franson and Brynas. Brynas only trailed by a goal through the first thirty minutes of action before Frolunda put the game out of reach by scoring twice a few minutes apart in the second and using the momentum to largely dictate play through the remainder of regulation time. Johan Harju had a game-high five shots on goal and won the only face-off he took but otherwise didn't hit the stat sheet while former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced, took the loss. Brynas (8-6-3-3, 33 PTS) next faces Linkoping (11-8-0-1, 34 PTS), which has won the the last five games it has played at home against Brynas, on Tuesday.

    Ravensburg 2 vs. Bietigheim 1

    Adam Hall, Ravensburg, Did not play
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-2-4, E, 29 PIM

    Minus the presence of Adam Hall, who received a match penalty for head-butting in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to SERC, Ravensburg overcame an early deficit and narrowly outshot Bietigheim 37-32 to secure a home victory Friday night. G Christian Rohde, who earned his seventh win of the season, was a rock for the Towerstars but Jochen Vollmer delivered his own impressive performance in net for the Steelers. Christopher Oravec and Fredrik Cabana set up Matt Kelly and Radek Krestan for both Ravensburg goals. The Towerstars (6-2-1-5, 23 PTS) now head the road and will next square off against the Landshut Cannibals (5-2-5-2, 24 PTS) on Sunday.

While he wasn’t named a game star, he was named Fox Sports North’s player of the game. He is expected to start again on Saturday in Mankato for the rematch. Unmarked forwards on Wilcox’s back door scored both shots that beat the freshman goaltender. On the second goal he stopped two shots in a flurry, then the puck hit the post before the Mavs tapped it into the open side of the net. Wilcox was huge in the third period while protecting a one-goal lead.

    C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 14 GP, 2-19-21, +7, 36 PIM

    Richard extended his point streak to 12 games with two assists against Oshawa on Friday night. In a game broadcast on NHL Network, Richard earned his first assist when he slid a pass back to Matt Finn at the point and Finn’s shot banked off the dasher of the end boards and hit goaltender Daniel Altshuller in the shoulder before falling over the goal line. Richard’s second assist came on the power play when he executed a give-and-go with Jets pick Scott Kosmachuck. Richard fed Kosmachuck in the slot for a grade-A scoring chance.

    Peterborough Petes 1 @ Mississauga Steelheads 4

    D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 15 GP, 2-9-11, -7, 12 PIM

    Leafs pick Stuart Percy had a goal and an assist to pace the Steelheads to a 4-1 win over Peterborough on Friday night. The Petes broke up Spencer Martin’s shutout bid with 13 seconds left in regulation. Lightning prospect goaltender Andrei Vasilevski was drafted by Mississauga, but the Steelheads were not able to bring him to the CHL this season.

    Impressive thumping of a team with a lot of NHL talent on it.


    Dustin Tokarski (pictured) picked up his 4th win of the season by stopping 23 of the 24 shots he faced. His numbers so far look like a carbon copy of last season's, right down to the .913 save percentage.

    First Period
    SYR Conacher, (6) , 10:03
    ADK Zolnierczyk, (3) (Eddy, Couturier), 17:37

    Second Period
    SYR Panik, (2) , 5:41
    SYR Johnson, (6) (Taormina, Cote), 7:16

    Third Period
    SYR Taormina, (1) , 19:22 (EN/SH)

    Tokarski and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars.

    Panik attack, y'all! Off the milk carton and onto the scoresheet.

    This was a really odd game when you think that Syracuse actually got held down to 18 shots. As I said, there's a lot of NHL talent on Adirondack. On paper, they're one of the real threats in the conference, so to whip them 4-1 in their barn is good for the soul.

    Syracuse is off until Wednesday when they'll start a 2 game set against Hamilton.

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

    In his first game action with his Vasteras in Sweden's second-tier of professional hockey, Brendan Mikkelson helped anchor his new club's second-pairing against a squad that, likewise due to the lockout, featured LA Kings star forward Anze Kopitar. Fellow NHLers Mikael Backlund (Calgary) and Patrik Berglund (St. Louis) led the way for Vasteras, as both scored in the late stages of the second period to help Lars Johasson, who stopped all 30 shots he faced, secure the shutout. Vasteras hosts Oskarshamn on Sunday.

    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, 0 SO, 4.82 GAA, 70/80 (.875 SV%)

    After losing his SM-Liiga debut to HPK in overtime Tuesday night, locked-out Lightning G Anders Lindback and his Ilves teammates were beaten like a drum Thursday night by SaiPa, which jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead and never looked back. Jyrki Jokipakka, with his first goal of the night, got Ilves within one just 24 seconds into the second period but SaiPa quickly countered and, by the end of the regulation, had rattled off five more goals to complete the onslaught. Ilves is next in action on Saturday against the Espoo Blues.
