    The final day of the KHL regular season...

    Astana 5 @ Dynamo Moscow 2
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 55 GP, 4-14-18, -10, 38 PIM

    Harju played 8:51 in the match and was 50% on draws. Former NHLer Mattias Weinhandl scored his 26th goal of the season in the match for Dynamo. Dynamo is the 3rd seed in the KHL Western Conference. They draw 6th seed Spartak Moscow in round one of the playoffs.

    Omsk 2 @ Dynamo Minsk 3
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 17/20, 3.03 GAA, .850 sv%
    Season totals: 44 GP, 21-17-4, 4 SO, 2.11 GAA, .913 sv%

    Ramo and Omsk have yet to win a game since the Olympic Break. Omsk is the 5th seed in the KHL Eastern Conference and will draw 4th seed Nizhnekamsk in the opening round of the playoffs.

    Yulaev 6 @ Dynamo Riga 4
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +7, 16 PIM

    Karsums played 17:27 in the match for Riga. Marcel Hossa scored his 35th goal of the season in the match for Riga. Riga is the 8th seed in the KHL's Western Conference and draws top seed St. Petersburg to start the playoffs.

    St. Petersburg 1 @ Ekaterinburg 2
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM

    Kazionov played 16:21 in the match for Ekateriburg. Former NHLer Alexei Yashin had St. Petersburg's only goal. Ekaterinburg defied tremendous odds to squeak past Novosibirsk by 1 point to claim the 8th and final playoff seed in the KHL's Eastern Conference. Unfortunately, that means they get juggernaut Yulaev in the first round. Good luck with that.

    Mytischi 4 @ Magnitogorsk 1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Loss, 23/27, 4.45 GAA, .852 sv%
    Season totals: 49 GP, 25-16-8, 8 SO, 1.96 GAA, .927 sv%

    Koshechkin was lifted in the third period for backup Dimitry Voloshin. Former Lightning prospects Alexei Glukhov and Vadim Epanchintsev each had helpers in the match for Mytischi. Magnitogorsk is the 2nd seed in the KHL Eastern Conference and will face 7th seed Chelyabinsk in round one.

    Yaroslavl 4 @ Kazan 1
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 18-9-27, +7, 18 PIM

    Kazionov played 15:22 in the match. Former NHLer Josef Vasicek had his 21st goal of the season in the match for Yaroslavl. Kazan gets the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference and draws 6th seed Astana in round one.

    All Lightning prospects in Russia are on clubs that made the postseason. The playoffs begin March 11th.

    Keep an eye on Harju, Koshechkin, and Ramo. All three may be targets to be signed by the Lightning once their seasons conclude.

    Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 4 (OT)
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 14-42-56, +38, 64 PIM

    Barberio had a rare minus game and saw his three-game point streak come to an end, but still got a Third Star on the road for his good play.


    Sudbury Wolves 2 @ Niagara IceDogs 4
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 47 GP, 7-19-26, -5, 18 PIM
    With Sudbury: 25 GP, 4-12-16, -10, 12 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    A big win for Niagara, who jumped Sudbury into seventh in the East, leaving the Wolves just one point ahead of Oshawa for the eighth and final playoff spot.

    Kingston Frontenacs 2 @ Oshawa Generals 3 (OT)
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

    The Gens are just one point behind Sudbury for the final playoff spot having swept their weekend home-and-home series with the Frontenacs. Zador did not play in either game.


    Prince Albert Raiders 3 @ Regina Pats 6
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (elbowing)
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 24-26-50, -6, 102 PIM
    With Regina: 34 GP, 11-13-24, +2, 50 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    The Pats have won two in a row since being eliminated from playoff contention.

    Vancouver Giants 0 @ Kelowna Rockets 3
    C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 4-10-14, -2, 6 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

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

  • 5 years 38 weeks ago

    Harvard Crimson 3 @ Princeton Tigers 0
    ECAC First Round – Game 2, Best of 3. Harvard wins series 2-0
    C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 9-11-20, E, 26 PIM

    Though they were outshot 37-17, ninth-seeded Harvard, which has struggled all season, somehow managed a shutout win on the road over a higher ranked club (No.8) and will now move on to the ECAC quarterfinals (opponent TBA). According to, Harvard (9-19-3) last won a first-round ECAC series in 2007 over Yale.

    No.16 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ UMass-Lowell River Hawks 1 (OT)
    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

    Vermont needed a win to get into the Hockey East playoffs, coming into this game ninth in the conference. They didn’t get that win, but did get a Boston University win over Northeastern, which propelled Vermont over Northeastern into the final playoff spot at No.8. Their reward is facing the conference’s top seed, New Hampshire.

    Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ No.14 Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 4
    CCHA First Round – Game 2, Best of 3. Alaska wins series 2-0
    D Luke Witkowski , WMU: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    Season Totals: 32 GP, 2-4-6, -12, 67 PIM

    The Nanooks completed a first round sweep of the Broncos, winning 4-1 in Alaska. This ends the season for the Broncos at 8-20-8. They will have a new coach next year. Witkowski completed his freshman season with two goals and four assists and played a very respectable amount of ice time for a freshman defenseman. He was among team leaders in PIM and finished comfortably at the bottom of the club's plus/minus rankings - understandable for a freshman defenseman.

    This just in: Niitty still owns the Thrashers.


    Antero Niittymaki found Atlanta to be the perfect elixer for his ills, stopping 29 of 31 shots to move to 17-0-0 lifetime against the Thrashers. It's hilarious.

    First Period
    ATL 3:22, Bergfors 18 (Little, Antropov)
    TB 8:47, St. Louis 23 (Stamkos, Downie)
    TB 13:06, Stamkos 39 (Foster, St. Louis)(PP)
    TB 17:00, Szczechura 3 (Bochenski, Tanguay)

    Second Period
    ATL 13:37, Armstrong 11 (Artyukhin, Peverley)
    TB 16:36, Purcell 4 (PS)

    Third Period
    TB 4:01, Lecavalier 18 (St. Louis, Purcell)
    TB 16:19, Stamkos 40 (Szczechura, Bochenski)

    It may have been a costly win with Martin St. Louis getting waffled in a third period scrum. It sure looked like a concussion to me. Hopefully he'll only miss a game or two, but a game or two may be the difference between being a playoff team or a lottery pick.

    By the way, huge demerits to Darren Eliot and the Thrashers' broadcasters, who claimed St. Louis' injury was fair retribution for a hit that Steve Downie put on Marty Reasoner. No, Darren, one of Downie's skates was still on the ice. You need to seek counseling for the world class hate-on you have for #9. Give the devil his due, Darren. Downie's got a good chance to be a 20 goal, 50 point, 200 PIM player by season's end. Those don't grow on trees, and if he were to be on the open market tomorrow there would be 29 teams lining up to get his services, including the same Atlanta Thrashers your sanctimonious rear end broadcasts for. Don't believe it? Ask your buddy Don Waddell about that class act Patrice Cormier he picked up in the Kovalchuk trade.

    Say what you want about Downie, he's never almost killed a young man whilst cheap shotting him. No, wait, let me guess: Cormier's hit can be rationalized away as fair retaliation too, right? You have no right to lecture people about dirty play when you celebrate talentless clods like Eric Boulton and suck up to a GM who acquires a guy who should be behind bars like Patrice Cormier (And, Waddell still doesn't have a playoff win in the roughly dozen years he's been on the job. Don't you wish you could stink out loud at your job for over a decade and still draw a six-figure salary?). Seriously. The Thrashers organization and an emphasis on acquiring players with character have never been in the same room together, much like Eliot and objectivity and/or humility have never been in the same area code.

    Stepping down from my soapbox: I'm liking the Teddy Purcell pickup. If they can get him on the same weight training program as Stamkos and Downie, he could be an awesome pickup. That penalty shot goal was stylish. Speaking of Stamkos, I joked at the start of this week he might have 40 goals by the end of the week. 5 goals later, he sits at 40 goals, which is a plateau only Sid Crosby and Alex Ovechkin have reached so far this season. And yes, as a goal scorer, Stammer is absolutely in that class. I was also asked if I thought Stammer could hit 50. Yes, in all seriousness, I think he can.

    Oh look, we have a prospect again! Paul Szczechura had the game winning goal, a helper, and was +2 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot. He was also 64% on draws in the 13:20 he played. That may have been his second best game as a pro, bested only by that game last year where he essentially beat the Pittsbugh Penguins by himself. He's 10 games short of graduation on Bolt Prospects, and if he keeps playing like that, he'll get his cap and gown before season's end.

    Box score and extended statistics from

  • 5 years 38 weeks ago

    A golden opportunity goes by the boards, and we're reminded how incredibly difficult it is to beat a good team on back-to-back nights.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 28 shots for the loss. The young netminder has back-to-back losses for the first time since early January.

    First Period
    NOR Tyrell, (6) (Hall, Craig), 10:44
    ALB Samson, (29) (Osala, McBain), 17:23
    ALB Bowman, (15) (Micflikier, Rodney), 18:47

    Second Period
    ALB Samson, (30) (Dodge, Terry), 1:55
    ALB Chaput, (10) (Osala, Samson), 5:21

    Third Period
    NOR Jones, (9) (Lashoff), 14:01

    Albany moves out to a 3 point lead with 1 game in hand on the Admirals for 2nd place in the East Division. 4th place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton was idle and remains 7 points back with 3 games in hand. 5th place Adirondack was blanked 1-0 by Binghamton and will fall into 6th place, 12 points behind Norfolk with 4 games in hand. They'll be passed by Syracuse, which bumped off Portland 4-3, and will now be 10 points back with 3 games in hand.

    In the crossover, Bridgeport, which is 5th in the Atlantic, thumped Providence 4-1, so the Sound Tigers are 5 points back of the Admirals with 1 game in hand. Providence is 7 points back with 2 games in hand. Hartford is 10 points back with 3 games in hand. If the Admirals fall to 4th in the East, they must finish ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic to make the postseason.

    Norfolk will be scoreboard watching until Friday when they finally get back into action hosting the Sound Tigers at The Scope. Norfolk has 10 games remaining at home and 4 on the road. Albany has 6 at home and 9 on the road. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton has 8 at home and 9 on the road.

    Sodertalje 2 @ Skelleftea 7
    Riku Helenius, Sodetalje, DNP
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-2-2, 0 SO, 2.68 GAA, .914 sv%

    Helenius must be relieved he avoided the bombing suffered by starter Pontus Sjogren in the match. Both teams managed 29 shots on goal, but the save percentages weren't.

    Moncton Wildcats 4 @ St. John Sea Dogs 3 (SO)
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 14-42-56, +39, 64 PIM

    A big, confidence-building win for the Wildcats over the CHL’s second-ranked team on the Sea Dog’s home ice. Moncton is ranked No.4 in the CHL. Barberio’s goal came in the first period on the power play to tie the game at two for Moncton. He has goals in two straight games and is one off his career high with five games left. He did not participate in the shootout.


    Belleville Bulls 3 @ Sudbury Wolves 4
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-0-1, -2, 4 PIM (spearing double-minor)
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 19-16-35, +4, 47 PIM
    With Bulls: 23 GP, 10-7-17, -11, 28 PIM
    With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 57 GP, 19-14-33, -19, 51 PIM
    With Bulls: 44 GP, 17-13-30, -17, 31 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-4-4, +2, 2 PIM (holding opponent’s stick), *First Star*
    Season Totals: 46 GP, 7-19-26, -4, 18 PIM
    With Sudbury: 24 GP, 4-12-16, -9, 12 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    Sointu (pictured) has six points in his last two games. The four points in a game were a career high for the young Finn. Panik scored for the second game in a row, but took a double-minor for spearing as the game ended.

    Barrie Colts 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 64 GP, 45-29-74, +38, 54 PIM

    A rare loss for the CHL’s top-ranked team from Barrie. Hutchings saw his point streak end at 12 games and his goal streak end at seven. He’s five goals short of 50 with four games remaining.

    Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

    The Gens are two points behind Niagara for the East’s last playoff spot with five games remaining.


    Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Regina Pats 4
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 61 GP, 24-26-50, -5, 100 PIM
    With Regina: 33 GP, 11-13-24, +3, 48 PIM
    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    The Pats get a win despite being out of the playoff race. Ashton’s goal, which came on the power play, was his first in eight games. He tied his career high for points in a season at 50, set in 70 games last year with the Hurricanes (30 goals).

    Vancouver Giants 1 @ Kamloops Blazers 6
    C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 4-10-14, -1, 6 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

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

    Five straight wins at home for the Admirals.

    NOR-3 (SO)

    Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 goals on 28 shots before stopping 2 out of 4 shooters in the penalty shot session for the shootout win. Janus moved his record to above .500 for the season at 7-6-0 with the win, and he's riding a personal 5 game winning streak.

    First Period
    ALB Terry, (14) (FitzGerald), 3:47

    Second Period
    NOR Hall, (12) (Tyrell, Craig), 9:59
    NOR Keller, (13) (Mihalik, Tyrell), 16:07 (PP)

    Third Period
    ALB McBain, (6) , 0:26


    ALB- Terry, McBain
    NOR- Keller, Jones, Fornataro, Fadden

    Adam Hall, Janus, and Justin Keller were the game's three stars.

    In a stunning development, Juraj Simek, the Don of the Presov Mafia, was stopped for the first time all season in the shootout. He was the one and only Admiral to fail to convert on Justin Pogge. With a pair of assists, Dana Tyrell had his 5th multi-point game in his last 11 games, and he's on a 3-game point streak. Vladimir Mihalik notched his 6th point in his last 12 games and has matched his season total for point from a year ago and is 1 point shy of his career best AHL season. Paul Szczechura is about to be recalled to Tampa Bay and did not play tonight.

    The win moves the Admirals to within 1 point of Albany for 2nd place in the East Division with the Rats holding 1 game in hand. The Admirals will give the Rats a rematch tomorrow night at The Scope, and a regulation win could move Norfolk into 2nd place all by themselves in the division. Fourth place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is losing 4-1 to Syracuse in the third period. If that holds up, Norfolk will move 7 points up on the Penguins with the Pens holding 3 games in hand. 5th place Adirondack lost to Rochester 5-2 and, if the Crunch's score holds up, they'll be tied with Syracuse at 12 points behind the Admirals with each team holding 3 games in hand on Norfolk. Bolt Prospects has declared the Binghamton Senators deceased.

    In the crossover, Bridgeport beat Portland 5-4, Providence fell to Manchester 2-1, and the Hartford Wolf Pack were idle. So, the Admirals remain 5 points up on the 5th place team in the Atlantic (Bridgeport), move 7 points up on the 6th place team (Providence) with the Bruins holding 2 games in hand, and the Admirals move 11 points up on 7th place Hartford with the Pack holding 3 games in hand. If the Admirals were to fall to 4th in the East Division, they would have to finish ahead of the 5th place team in the Atlantic to make the postseason.

    It's an epic clash tomorrow between the Admirals and the Rats with 2nd place in the division potentially up for grabs.
