    Brown Bears 2 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 4
    ECAC First Round: Quinnipiac wins best of 3 series, 2-1

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 8-27-35, +2, 12 PIM

    It took longer than expected, but the fifth-seeded Bobcats finally eliminated last place Brown. The Bears, who upset Quinnipiac on Friday to take a 1-0 lead in their opening round series of the ECAC playoffs, went down 3-0 on Sunday after two periods in the decisive Game 3, only to come roaring back to make it 3-2 four minutes into the third period. Quinnipiac held on and eventually added an empty netter with 15 seconds left in the game. Lightning prospect Matt Peca had the primary assist on his team’s first goal, which made it 11 straight Bobcat goals he either scored or assisted on. That streak stopped with the Bobcats’ second goal of the game. Quinnipiac advances to play Colgate starting next Friday.

    KHL Western Conference Quarterfinals
    (5)Cherepovets 4 @ (4) Mytischi 0
    Series Tied 2-2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Win, SO, 30/30, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0, 1 SO, 0.967 GAA, .968 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 16-11-1, 6 SO, 2.37 GAA, .925 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin threw a 30 save shutout to help Cherepovets even their opening round series with Mytischi at 2-2. Ex-Lightning first rounder Nikita Alexeev had a pair of assists in the match for Cherepovets. Game Five is Tuesday.

    Elsewhere, CSKA looks to be on the way out after a Maxim Afinogenov overtime goal broke a 1-1 tie dropped them into a 3-1 series hole. Nikita Kucherov did not appear in the match.

    Out West, Chelyabinsk outlasted Khanty-Mansiysk 7-6 to take a 2-1 series lead. A complete box score has not been posted yet, but Nikita Nesterov was a scratch for Game 1 and Game 2. We also know Nesterov was not in the lineup for Chelyabinsk Jr.'s 4-3 OT loss to Riga Jr. in the MHL. We will update as more information becomes available.

    Cedar Rapids Roughriders 4 @ Tri-City Storm 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 18 saves on 22 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 24 GP, 11-13-1, 3.14 GAA, .910 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox and the Storm have spent the last two months crawling up the standings to make a run at the playoffs, but two bad losses this weekend could be a sign the surge could be ending. Wilcox had a pedestrian night in net after earning four or five first stars in the past few weeks. Fortunately for the Storm Sioux City continues to lose so Tri-City is still within a point of the final spot.


    Gatineau Olympiques 8 @ Drummondville Voltigeurs 2

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play (illness)
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

    Janosik was not in the lineup for the second straight night due to a virus that’s spreading through the Gatineau locker room. Rookie Kyle Morrison (undrafted) had a hat trick for Gatineau.

    Moncton Wildcats 0 @ Victoriaville Tigres 10

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM (slashing), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 2-8-10, -15, 57 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 23 GP, 2-3-5, -2, 26 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    Victoriaville was not a kind host to Moncton on Saturday, beating them 10-0. Milan got into the action with an assist against his former team. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes was first star for Victoriaville with two goals and four points.


    Ottawa 67’s 2 @ London Knights 1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 21-47-68, +18, 46 PIM

    Czech Republic World Juniors hero Petr Mrazek (Red Wings) stole the show in London on Saturday by stopping 39 of 40 shots to give Ottawa the win. Namestnikov has one point in his last four games.

    Oshawa Generals 5 @ Barrie Colts 1

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 1-14-15, +4, 24 PIM
    With Oshawa: 16 GP, 1-3-4, +1, 4 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

    The Gens bounced back from a shellacking by London on Friday night to get a big road win against the high-powered Colts. Oshawa is three points up on Peterborough for the final playoff spot in the East with a game in hand on the Petes.

    Vermont Catamounts 0 @ No. 1 Boston College Eagles 4

    F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    And that’s that. Vermont’s season ended with a lopsided loss to the nation’s top team. Marshall (pictured), a fifth round pick of the Bolts in 2007, will graduate this spring. Where his hockey career goes from here – if anywhere – is up in the air. The speedy winger known for his forechecking finishes his collegiate career with five goals and 14 points in 86 games. His career at Vermont was marred by injuries and frequent scratches. He was honored at senior night last weekend by the Catamounts, but was unable to play due to recovery from surgery.

    Brown Bears 0 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 3
    ECAC First Round: Best of 3 series tied 1-1

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 36 GP, 8-26-34, +2, 12 PIM

    Friday night Brown came into Connecticut determined to show that just because they finished the season last in the conference didn’t mean they had to lie down in the playoffs. Peca admitted to the media that his team was flat and looked tired. He did his part Saturday to remedy that as he led the team with eight shots on goal and tied for the team lead with three points as QU tied the best of three series 1-1. The Bobcats outshot the Bears 42-16. Game 3 is Sunday. Peca has now factored in on every Quinnipiac goal for the last four games – 10 goals (1-9-10). According to the Quinnipiac Chronicle, Peca's 26 assists are the third most for a Quinnipiac freshman in program history, while his 34 points are good for fourth all-time.

    Kalamazoo Wings 4 @ Florida Everblades 5 (SO)

    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-5-7, -1, 6 PIM
    D Sebastien Piche, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 4 PIM
    D Kevin Quick, FLA: 0-1-1, E, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 0-9-9, -10, 2 PIM (Norfolk property)
    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 38 GP, 19-14-0-3, 2.90 GAA, .903 sv%, 1 SO

    Florida earned another two points from Kalamazoo, but this time it was more difficult. One night after beating the Wings 9-3, Florida needed a shootout to beat the visitors from Michigan. Florida had four different goal scorers in regulation and won the skills competition 1-0 on a goal by Mathieu Roy. Norfolk property and former Lightning draft pick Kevin Quick (pictured) participated in the shootout, but did not score. Nagle got the night off. Florida is in the 7th spot in the conference, but just three points up on ninth place Chicago with the Express having a game in hand.

    The Lightning are now getting close enough to smell it.

    CAR-3 (OT)

    Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the win. The guy makes just enough saves to get the W's. I can't say his save percentage is pretty, but he's making key saves at key times. The guy is 7 games over .500 now. Yeah, I'm surprised, too!

    First Period
    TB Wallace (1), (Shannon), 5:58

    Second Period
    CAR Stewart (8), (Staal, Spacek), 5:23
    CAR Jokinen (10), (unassisted), 15:02
    CAR Stewart (9), (Staal, Tlusty), 16:18
    TB Stamkos (46), (unassisted), 18:00

    Third Period
    TB Purcell (19), (St. Louis, Malone)(PP), 7:24

    TB Stamkos (47), (Purcell)(PP), 2:41

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and third stars. It would've been very easy for the Lightning to pack it up down 3-1 after their travel issues in a back-to-back game scenario. You can't undersell how important Stamkos' first goal in the game was.

    Oh, memo to Showboat Malkin, #91 just passed you in the Art Ross Trophy race. Ta ta, for now.

    And, just when it looked like the Lightning were going to fail on a third period 5-on-3, and that the powerless play was going to shut the lid on the season, Purcell got it done. Then Stamkos buried the 'Canes in overtime, again on the power play. It's gotten better in the past couple of weeks, and none too soon.

    I forgot how sweet the tears of the 'Canes TV broadcast team were. Like cinnamon.

    Now it gets really interesting, as the Lightning have pulled within 2 points of 8th place and 4 points of the Panthers for the division. Make no bones about it, the Panthers are starting to feel the back pressure coming from the Lightning, as should be the Caps and Jets. Tampa Bay gets Ottawa Tuesday night. Keep believing.

    Keith Aulie had 1 hit in 8:54. The big man looked a little lost at times in his own zone. I am concerned.

    Tim Wallace had his first NHL goal and was +2 with 1 shot on goal in 6:50. Enjoy it, young fella.

    J.T. Wyman was -1 with 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 12:07.

    Box score and extended statistics from

  • 6 years 7 weeks ago

    It's a dozen, now.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 18 shots for his 27th win of the season. That ties his career high for wins set in his rookie season 2 years ago. He is also up to 8 victories in his last 8 starts.

    First Period
    NOR Conacher, (31) (Gudas, Devos), 7:04
    NOR Ouellet, (14) (Angelidis, Picard), 8:28
    NOR Johnson, (19) (Jackson, Angelidis), 14:32 (SH)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    SPR Regner, (2) (Savard, MacLeod), 8:15
    NOR Panik, (13) (Conacher, Barberio), 10:19 (PP)
    NOR Johnson, (20) (Palat, Panik), 11:00

    Tyler Johnson (pictured), Mike Angelidis, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars. Johnson's now tied for 4th in the league in rookie scoring. He's got no shot of catching Conacher, but there's no denying how impressive of a debut campaign he's had. With 20 goals now, he's threatening to break into the top-20 in the AHL in that category, as well.

    Just to reiterate my previous point about Jon Cooper deserving coach of the year, the Admirals rookies tonight had 4 goals and 8 points tonight, combined, between Conacher, Devos, Johnson, Panik, and Palat. That's a 12 game winning streak where your sled dogs are just puppies, which in my mind is indicative of excellent coaching.

    Fortunately for the Admirals, there was no let down thanks to a little pre-game altercation that got their juices going and probably helped propel them out to the 3-0 first period lead. Springfield's got muscle in the physical department, but they probably are regretting getting the Admirals, who have much more muscle in the offensive department, ready to go right out of the gate tonight.

    Panik attack, y'all!

    The Admirals expanded their division lead to 10 points over the idle Pens and they maintained a 12 point buffer on Hershey, with the Bears winning tonight. Hershey has 2 games in hand on the Admirals and the Pens have 3, but things look very good right now in the division.

    In the conference, Syracuse screamed past St. John's with 4 goals in the final frame to steal a 6-4 win. So, the Admirals now hold an 8 point lead in the conference with St. John's still holding 5 games in hand.

    Box score from

  • 6 years 7 weeks ago

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 4 @ Pelicans 6
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Loss, 30/35, 5.07 GAA, .857 sv%
    Season totals: 30 GP, 19-8-1, 6 SO, 1.67 GAA, .935 sv%

    Riku Helenius and JYP blew a 3-0 first period lead and fell 6-4 to Lahti. Ex-Lightning draft pick Radek Smolenak had 2 goals and 1 assist in the comeback win for Pelicans. JYP faces HIFK next on Tuesday. JYP has 5 games left in their regular season.

    KHL (Russia):
    Western Conference Quarterfinals
    (5)Cherepovets 2 @ (4) Mytischi 1 (OT)
    Mytischi Leads the Series 2-1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Win, 34/35, 0.87 GAA, .971 sv%
    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 1-2-0, 0 SO, 1.27 GAA, .958 sv%
    Regular season totals: 33 GP, 16-11-1, 6 SO, 2.37 GAA, .925 sv%

    Ondrej Nemec scored 8:37 into overtime to lift Cherepovets to a 2-1 win over Mytischi in Game Three of their opening round series. Goaltender Vasily Koshechkin finally got some payoff in the win column, now having allowed just 4 goals in the series' first 3 games. Game Four is Sunday.

    Elsewhere, Denis Parshin's overtime goal lifted CSKA to a 3-2 win over St. Petersburg, cutting SKA's series lead to 3-2 over the former Red Army squad. Nikita Kucherov did not appear in the match for CSKA.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 1 @ Skelleftea 3
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 15-9-24, +10, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju scored the game's opening goal, but Lulea still fell 3-1 to Skelleftea. Second place Skelleftea no doubt got a moral victory from the win, but Lulea has already clinched the Elitserien regular season title. They'll play Vaxjo on Tuesday in the final match of the regular season.

  • 6 years 7 weeks ago


    Omaha Lancers 6 @ Tri-City Storm 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 30 saves on 35 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 23 GP, 11-12-1, 3.09 GAA, .913 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox couldn’t make it three straight games with a first star award as the first place Lancers put five pucks by him on Friday on their way to a big win. Tri-City is still one point out of a playoff spot in the West.


    PEI Rocket 1 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 8

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 0-3-3, +4, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 0 Hits, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 41-34-75, +39, 61 PIM

    Fresh off signing a 3-year free agent contract with the Lightning, forward Danick Gauthier had three assists to help the first place Sea Dogs to an 8-1 win over last place PEI. Gauthier is 10th in the league in total points now with 75. Florida Panthers first rounder Jonathan Huberdeau had four goals on the night for Saint John. The Rocket was outshot 41-15. To put things into perspective, Saint John leads the league with 94 points. PEI has 38.

    Drummondville Voltigeurs 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 4 (SO)

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play (illness)
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

    Janosik was not in the lineup Friday night due to a virus that’s spreading through the Gatineau locker room. Sound familiar?

    Val-d’Or Foreurs 3 @ Victoriaville Tigres 2 (SO)

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (slashing, interference), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 2-7-9, -17, 55 PIM
    With Victoriaville: 22 GP, 2-2-4, -4, 24 PIM
    With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

    The Tigres sit in the fifth spot on the QMJHL table after picking up a point in a shootout loss on Friday.


    Oshawa Generals 2 @ London Knights 7

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 1-14-15, +3, 22 PIM
    With Oshawa: 15 GP, 1-3-4, +1, 4 PIM
    With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 44 PIM

    It’s over! Schemitsch’s (pictured) streak of 86 regular season games without a goal came to an end when he scored an unassisted marker on Friday night in London. It was his first goal since the first game of the 2010-2011 season when he was with Owen Sound. On the other side of the ice, former Lightning prospect camper Seth Griffith had a hat trick for the Knights. He has 44 goals this season. His usual set-up man, Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov, was moved off Griffith’s line.

    Vermont Catamounts 1 @ No. 1 Boston College Eagles 5

    F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    Vermont will play its final game of the season Saturday against No.1 Boston College. Marshall, a senior, was expected back in the lineup at some point this season, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. He has played in only two games this year. Unless he is granted a medical redshirt, his collegiate career is through.

    Brown Bears 4 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 1

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 7-24-31, +1, 12 PIM

    Upset! Last place Brown defeated fifth-seeded Quinnipiac 4-1 in the Bobcats’ home barn on Friday to take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three ECAC first round series. Peca has now assisted on Quinnipiac’s last seven goals, dating back a week. Game 2 is Saturday night at Quinnipiac.
