    WHL EASTERN CONFERENCE SEMI-FINALS

    Game 1: (5) Kootenay Ice 3 @ (3) Lethbridge Hurricanes 2
    Kootenay leads Best of 7 series 1-0

    C Mitch Fadden, LET:
    Game: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Playoffs: 7 GP, 2-6-8, -3, 4 PIM (plus a 10 min misconduct)

    After winning 5 of 6 regular season games from Lethbridge, Kootenay took Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semi-finals series by turning a 2-0 third period deficit into a 3-2 win. Ben Maxwell (undrafted) scored his fifth of the playoffs to win the game for the Ice at the 13 minute mark of the third period. Game 2 is Saturday night in Lethbridge.

    WHL WESTERN CONFERENCE SEMI-FINALS

    Game 1: (4) Seattle Thunderbirds 7 @ (1) Tri-City Americans 1
    Seattle leads Best of 7 series 1-0

    G Riku Helenius, SEA:
    Game: Win, 29 saves on 30 shots
    Playoffs: 7 GP, 4-2-1, 2.41 GAA, .913 sv%

    The T-Birds chased All-WHL goalie Chet Pickard when they jumped out to a 6-1 lead less than 3 minutes into the third period then added one more for good measure on their way to a 7-1 win. Pickard led the WHL with a 46-12-2-2 record this year and is expected to be one of the first goalies taken at this summer’s draft. Colton Yellow Horn and Jason Reese had a short-handed breakaway for Tri-City with 30 seconds left in the first, but couldn't get the puck past Helenius. A goal there would have cut Seattle's lead to 2-1. Seattle got a hat trick from Ian MacKenzie (undrafted) to help them steal home-ice advantage from the Americans, who hadn’t played in 9 days after sweeping Kamloops. No.1 Tri-City was 5-4 against Seattle this year with both teams earning an overtime win. Game 2 is Saturday night in Kennewick, Washington.

    The kid deserved better tonight.

    TB-1
    WSH-4

    Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 39 shots in the loss. Ramo held the game at 1-1 despite a 2 to 1 shot disparity in favor of the Capitals until a third period power play allowed the Caps to break the deadlock for good. With just a little more goal support, Ramo might've had a signature win to close out his season.

    Matt Smaby was -1 in 16:20 tonight with 5 hits and 1 blocked shot. He also took a pair of minors: one for tripping and one for holding.

    Congratulations to Jeff Halpern on hitting 20 goals. That's the silver lining in tonight's mess.

    TB-2
    CAR-6

    Mike Smith allowed 6 goals on 32 shots in the loss.

    Matt Smaby was -1 in 22:09 with 2 shots, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots. That's the first time in his NHL career he's broken the tape on 20 minutes of ice time, so it's a small milestone.

    QMJHL FIRST ROUND - EASTERN DIVISION

    Game 6: (5) Lewiston MAINEiacs 1 @ (4) Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 2 (OT)
    Cape Breton wins Best of 7 series 4-2

    D Michael Ward, LEW:
    Game: 0-1-1, +1, 5 min. major for charging + game misconduct
    Series: 5 GP, 0-3-3, +3, 13 PIM (Plus a game misconduct. Was suspended for Game 1)

    Lewiston will not repeat as QMJHL champions as the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles overcame a 1-0 third period deficit to force overtime, then winger Murdock MacLellan scored just his fifth goal of the year at 9:46 of the extra session to clinch the series for CB. According to the Lewiston Sun-Journal, Ward stepped into a check at the right point with 2:15 to play in the second period and leveled CB’s Chris Culligan. Ward was kicked out and Culligan received a minor for roughing after the fact.

    What’s Next for Ward: After a slow start to the season offensively, Ward came on over the second half and followed that up with 3 points in 5 playoff games. The 6-3, 200 pound defenseman also displayed more of a mean streak in the final month. Primarily a defensive-defenseman, Ward could break out statistically next season in the Q much the same way Paul Ranger did for Oshawa of the OHL a season after his draft year. Ward could be a two-way minute-eater for Lewiston next year and top 35 points and 100 PIM.
