    Syracuse finally gets a break through.

    RCH-5
    SYR-6 (OT)

    Louis Domingue allowed 5 goals on 35 shots, but got a drink from the cool, refreshing fountain of goal support.

    First Period
    1:18 SYR Volkov (3), (Peca, McNeill)
    14:34 RCH Redmond (2), (Baptiste, Blackwell)
    17:00 RCH Porter (5), (Moses, Rodrigues)(PP)

    Second Period
    7:39 SYR Peca (1), (unassisted)(SH)
    11:10 RCH Malone (1), (unassisted)
    14:43 SYR McBain (2), (Conacher, Walcott)
    18:16 SYR Masin (3), (Peca, Bournival)(SH)
    19:50 RCH Baptiste (4), (Percy, Fasching)(PP)

    Third Period
    10:14 SYR Bodie (1), (Lynch)
    13:11 RCH Allen (1), (Blackwell, Smith)

    Overtime
    1:48 SYR Yan (3), (Masin, Cirelli)

    Dennis Yan and Matthew Peca were the game's first and second stars. Yan's quietly got points in 4 of his last 5 outings and has had decent production for his rookie campaign.

    This team has been so painfully close so many times this season that you just have to hope getting an emotional OT win is the elixir that slingshots them back into the playoff hunt.

    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    Somppi scored the opening goal, a power play marker just 2:38 into the contest, and the Mooseheads would squeeze out the 6-5 win. But not before the Darren Rumble coached Wildcats fought them tooth and nail every minute of the game. Halifax was paced by Islanders 2016 6th round pick Arnaud Durandeau and Blue Jackets signee Maxime Fortier.

    ’16-‘17 Totals (MHL-Russia): 32 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 79 PIM

    Brett Howden finally returned to the lineup after being injured in the WHL vs. Russia series, and everyone in Mosaic Place was so happy, they awarded him the game’s Third Star. Howden assisted on a 1st period power play goal that was part of a 4-0 run by the Warriors that extended to 5-2 lead by the second intermission. After Moose Jaw went up 6-2 three minutes into the 3rd, the game looked like a full on stinker. Then the Blades went on their own 4-0 tear, sending it to OT before Brayden Burke scored the OT game winner for the Warriors. Hajek notched a couple of assists for Saskatoon in the loss, and Jason Halbgewachs scored twice to pace Moose Jaw.

    Crunch drop another close heartbreaker.

    SYR-1
    TOR-3

    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the loss. Another hard luck loss in a quality start for the freshly acquired Syracuse starter.

    First Period
    4:56 TOR Holl (1), (Marincin, Bracco)(SH)
    10:02 SYR Lynch (3), (Conacher)(SH)

    Barrie Colts 5 @ Oshawa Generals 3

    W Alexey Lipanov, BAR: Did Not Play
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 7-10-17, +6, 2 PIM
    ‘16-‘17 Totals (VHL-Russia): 21 GP, 3-5-8, +5, 8 PIM

    The Generals scored three 2nd period goals to knot the game at 3-3, but the Colts iced the game with two goals in the 3rd. Lipanov missed his second straight game, but overage Lucas Chiodo (undrafted) lead Barrie with a goal and three points.

    Peterborough Petes 1 @ Kitchener Rangers 4

    W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 7 SOG, 1/2 FO
    Season Totals: 19 GP, 8-2-10, -12, 4 PIM
    ’16-‘17 Totals (NIA/PBO): 66 GP, 19-29-48, +1, 28 PIM

    Once again the Petes scored first, but the OHL Midwest leading Rangers mustered three unanswered and added the empty netter. Kitchener was paced by Slovakian Adam Liska (undrafted) and overage St. Louis native Jake Henderson (undrafted). Peterborough's winless streaks sits at three.

    Erie Otters 1 @ Saginaw Spirit 3

    Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5 @ Halifax Mooseheads 6 (SO)

    C/W Otto Somppi, HAL: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 20/29 FO
    Season Totals: 15 GP, 6-14-20, +20, 12 PIM
    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    You won’t see it on the stat line, but Somppi scores the shootout game winner as the fifth Mooseheads shooter, securing the Halifax victory by virtue of a skills contest. The Mooseheads were paced by highly ranked blueline prospect Jared McIsaac’s two-goal, three-point performance. McIsaac is currently ranked in the Top 15 by a number of scouting agencies ahead of next summer's 2018 NHL Entry draft.

    Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Barrie Colts 1

    ‘16-‘17 Totals (VHL-Russia): 21 GP, 3-5-8, +5, 8 PIM

    The Colts scored first, but allowed a shortie and power play goal in the 3rd. Lipanov surprisingly didn’t dress for Barrie.

    Erie Otters 5 @ Flint Firebirds 2

    W Taylor Raddysh, ER: 1-1-2, +2, 2 PIM, 5 SOG, 1/2 FO
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 10-21-31, +13, 16 PIM
    ‘16-‘17 Totals: 58 GP, 42-67-109, +67, 37 PIM

    Taylor Raddysh potted the empty netter and rang up a power play assist to help the Otters earn a road victory in Flint.

    Western Hockey League

    Kelowna Rockets 1 @ Vancouver Giants 6

    D Cal Foote, KEL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 5-16-21, +10, 18 PIM
    ‘15-‘16 Totals: 71 GP, 6-51-57, +39, 41 PIM

    Cal Foote and the Rockets gave up four 1st period goals and it was downhill from there for the Giants. Oilers 2016 2nd round pick and Giants captain Tyler Benson led the charge for Vancouver with two goals and an assist.

    Saskatoon Blades 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 6

    D Libor Hajek, SAS: 1-2-3, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 6-12-18, -13, 20 PIM

    ’16-‘17 Totals (MHL-Russia): 32 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 79 PIM

    The Blades held leads of 2-1 and 3-2 early, behind a goal and two power play assists from Hajek. But then Tanner Jeannot’s hat trick happened and the Warriors didn’t look back. Remember early in the season when Sosunov was shaking heads with all the goal scoring? Well, he’s just sneezing out power play assists these days. Still no Howden sighting in Mosaic Place as he remains out of the Warriors lineup with an injury.

    ’16-‘17 Totals: 53 GP, 27-27-54, +21, 18 PIM
    Committed to: University of Denver

    The Capitols knotted the game twice, but a 3rd period marker by Arizona State commit Josh Maniscalco (undrafted) sealed the win for the Fighting Saints. Guttman was credited with a helper on Dubuque’s opening goal.

    Fargo Force 5 @ Sioux City Musketeers 1

    RW Sammy Walker, SC: Did Not Play
    Season Totals (SC): 4 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 4 PIM

    It’s the second straight game Walker didn’t dress, and the score looks like the Musketeers might could have used him in the lineup. Uncommitted and undrafted Fargo goalie Strauss Mann out of the Connecticut prep school system stopped 33 Sioux City shots.

    Lightning rally gives false hope after flat start.

    NYI-5
    TB-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 31 shots for the rare loss. I think he might want the second goal back, which appeared to go through him, but in fairness to him the defense was pretty rancid tonight.

    First Period
    0:51 NYI Ladd (4), (Tavares, Ho-Sang)
    10:25 NYI Lee (10), (Tavares, Bailey)

    Second Period
    7:09 NYI Nelson (6), (Chimera, Pelech)

    Third Period
    1:05 NYI Lee (11), (Bailey, Barzal)(PP)
    3:13 TB Gourde (5), (Point, Koekkoek)
    3:26 TB Palat (5), (Point, Vasilevskiy)
    16:24 TB Gourde (6), (Palat, Girardi)
    19:38 NYI Tavares (14), (Cizikas, Bailey)(EN)

    Yanni Gourde was the game's second star.

    The Lightning were flat and looked unprepared for the game and the Islanders jumped on them and got the goal on the opening shift. The Lightning responded by opening up too much to try to get goals and ended up surrendering too many odd man rushes and found themselves behind the eight ball. They eventually got down 3 goals after 40 minutes, and as I've said many a time, it feels like 99 times out of 100 that's a death sentence for the team trailing in pro hockey. You may get within one, but you eventually lose and it happened again tonight.

    The Lightning finish the second 10-game segment of the season 8 points ahead of playoff pace. Good news is, ending on a loss, I don't think anyone's got to warn the Lightning to get complacent. Segment three starts tomorrow with a record of 0-0-0. Twelve in ten: do it again.

    Slater Koekkoek had a helper and was +2 with 1 hit in 9:01.

    Gourde had a pair of goals and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 17:23.

    Jake Dotchin was -3 with 2 shots in 12:18. Not going to sugar coat it: he stunk tonight. Getting beat like a dog out of the corner by Nelson on the third goal ultimately was the kill shot goal for the Islanders. He didn't cloak himself in glory with his play in this one.

    Mikhail Sergachev was -1 with 3 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 18:37. Had a lot of scoring chances in this game and was dynamic offensively.

    Breakthrough for Crunch remains close, but out of reach.

    SYR-1
    TOR-2

    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the loss. It was a quality start in his Syracuse debut, at least.

    First Period
    3:05 SYR Erne (1), (Thomas, Yan)(PP)
    13:54 TOR Johnsson (7), (Mueller, Kapanen)(PP)
    18:56 TOR Kapanen (5), (Rosen, Johnsson)(PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Dennis Yan was the game's third star.

    Good to see Adam Erne rebound with a goal after his... inartful... breakaway attempt last time out made Sportcenter bloopers.

    Syracuse outshot the division-leading Marlies, but couldn't crack Garret Sparks for the equalizer. The team remains tantalizingly close to a breakthrough but is still struggling to figure out how to finish off and win games.

    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    Somppi assisted on both Mooseheads goals and managed a plus-minus of +1 after the Sea Dogs put a touchdown up on the scoreboard, receiving Third Star hometown honors in the losing effort. Somppi leads all of the Q in plus-minus with +20 despite missing the early part of the season with an injury. Coupled with his 2 shorties in just 14 games, Somppi is progressing as a solid two-way prospect in a contract decision year for the Lightning, and there may be just one ELC available for either Somppi or fellow Bolt prospect Christopher Paquette.

    ‘15-‘16 Totals: 71 GP, 6-51-57, +39, 41 PIM

    The Hurricanes and Rockets put on a show for the 5,100+ fans at Prospera Place. Kelowna scored the first two goals, striking just 40 seconds into the contest. Former Buffalo Sabres prospect Giorgio Estephan then put his Lethbridge team on his shoulders scoring twice and assisting on a third to give the Hurricanes a 3-2 lead. The Rockets then scored twice to take a 4-3 lead into 2nd intermission, and after the 4-4 equalizer by the Hurricanes early in the 3rd, Kelowna emptied the tank and finished with three straight for the win. Foote (pictured) earned Second Star honors, notching 4 assists, including helpers on both of Flames’ prospect Dillon Dube’s goals.

    Brandon Wheat King 4 @ Saskatoon Blades 1

    D Libor Hajek, SAS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG

    Sosunov nabbed a power play assist on the Warriors’ 4th goal as Moose Jaw cruised to a win against the Hitmen. Howden remains out of the Warriors lineup after sustaining an injury in the first game of the 2017 CIBC Canada Russia Series.

    Guttman was scoreless in Dubuque’s failed comeback attempt against Waterloo. Niko Esposito-Selivanov was also scoreless for the Black Hawks. It was a busy press week for Guttman, first announcing his commitment to the reigning NCAA champion University of Denver Pioneers. The Fighting Saints captain was then named to the 2017 WJAC roster by Team USA to play in the 2017 World Junior A Challenge from Dec. 10-16 in Truto, Nova Scotia.

    After both teams traded power play goals in the first 40 minutes, the Roughriders scored thrice in the 3rd period to outpace the Lancers. This week Perbix was also named to the 2017 WJAC roster by Team USA and joins Guttman on the USA roster for the 2017 World Junior A Challenge.

Katchouk is now 2nd in the OHL in goals, 4th in points, 1st in shorties, 1st in game-winners, and 2nd in plus-minus.

    Alexey Lipanov opened the scoring with his league leading third shorthanded goal just three minutes into the contest. Then… a snowman happened. The Wolves scored the next seven and Wild 2016 7th round pick Dmitry Sokolov chalked up a four-point night to pace Sudbury. Oh, and Lipanov was also 50% on face offs.

    Lightning pummel ex-mate Bishop in his return to Tampa.

    DAL-1
    TB-6

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. The typical formula applied. He made a handful of important situational saves early in the game, allowing the Lightning the time to start pulling away in the Second Period.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    0:47 TB Stamkos (9), (Hedman, Kucherov)(PP)
    3:34 DAL Faksa (4), (unassisted)
    4:51 TB Sergachev (5), (Killorn, Johnson)
    11:20 TB Point (8), (unassisted)(SH)

    Third Period
    3:57 TB Stamkos (10), (Kucherov, Namestnikov)
    8:18 TB Dotchin (2), (Sergachev, Stamkos)
    13:52 TB Kucherov (17), (Hedman, Stamkos)

    Steven Stamkos, Mikhail Sergachev, and Nikita Kucherov were the game's three stars.

    Impressive showing by the Lightning. They showed no rust at all in the first game from a road trip, outskating and outpossessing Dallas by a significant margin in the First Period. The game got a lot more even in the Second Period as the Lightning took a few penalties, but the Lightning's special teams paid off with a PP and SH goal in the frame, and that allowed them to start to pull away. At 5 on 5, there's few teams that seem to be able to touch this team. On the power play, they're lethal. And, on the penalty kill, the injection of players like Point and Gourde have added a lethal element that gives teams very little respite. Some team or two is going to get their act together over the course of the season and lay down their marker as a potential contender, but right now the league is looking like the Tampa Bay Lightning and then everyone else so far this year.

    With the victory, the Lightning stand at 32 points through 19 games, meaning with 1 game to go in the second 10-game segment of the year the Lightning have already banked 8 insurance points. Remarkable.

    Yanni Gourde was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 blocked shot in 21:33. He was also 40% on 5 draws.

    Jake Dotchin had his second NHL goal and was +1 with 3 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 16:21. Thought his goal was maybe a touch on the soft side, but he had a scoring chance earlier in the game where I thought he might've been a little luckier on the outcome, so these things even out.

    Sergachev had a goal and an assist and was +3 with 3 shots and 1 hit in 14:16. His goal was kind of a lucky shot that deflected on a long point shot off a Dallas defender and went straight into the top corner. This is why Cooper preaches shooting the puck. The helper on Dotchin's goal was nothing fancy, but kind of epitomized how he played all night, using his mobility to support the play in all three zones.
