    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 1 GP, 0-0-1, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    It's the sort of thing you don't see everyday: backup Riku Helenius spelled Pontus Sjogren in the shootout and allowed 2 of 4 shooters to convert in Sodertalje's 3-2 shootout loss to Vaxjo. Ex-Panthers draft pick Dustin Johner, who appeared for the Lightning during the Traverse City Prospects Tournament many years ago, had a pair of assists in the victory. Sodertalje forced overtime after Mathias Mansson scored with the goaltender pulled with just 56 seconds left in regulation. Vaxjo moves into the lead in the Kval till Elitserien at the halfway point of the schedule with 12 points in the standings. Sodertalje is 1 point back at 11 points and MODO is 2 points back at 10 points. MODO fell to Rogle 2-1 in a shootout today. Sodertalje will play Vaxjo again on Monday. 5 games remain in the Kval till Elitserien, and the top two teams will play in the Elitserien next season with the remaining teams going to the second tier Allsvenskan league.

    Halifax Mooseheads 3 @ Montreal Juniors 5
    Montreal leads best of seven series 1-0

    D Charles Landry, MTL: 1-0-1, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 1 Hit, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 57 GP, 11-29-40, +26, 30 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 1-0-1, +3, 0 PIM

    Landry’s sixth career playoff goal was the first for the Juniors this postseason and tied Game 1 between Halifax and Montreal at one. Landry’s goal sparked a five-goal outburst by the Juniors, who allowed two late goals to Halifax. Game 2 is Friday. Landry had three postseason goals last season with Drummondville in 14 games. He had two with the Volts in their Memorial Cup run under Guy Boucher in 2008-09.

    Wheeling Nailers 3 @ Florida Everblades 1
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 45 GP, 11-13-24, -9, 33 PIM

    Bobby Goepfert stopped 23 of 26 shots to take the loss for Florida Wednesday in the first game of a three game set with Wheeling. Alex Hutchings did not register a shot for the second straight game. With five games left, Florida (74 points) is one point behind South Carolina for fourth in the East with a game in hand, but just one point up on Wheeling and Elmira, who are tied for sixth. Cincinnati is in eighth with 72 points. The ‘Blades put some distance between them and ninth-place Gwinnett (67 points) with a three game road sweep last weekend. Goaltender Jaroslav Janus is currently with AHL Norfolk.

    Tic returns with a vengeance.


    Dustin Tokarski returned from missing the weekend set against Albany with a minor injury to stop 32 of 33 shots for the victory. Since the start of February, Tic has gone 10-2-2 with 2 shutouts, and he's 6-1-0 in the month of March with 1 shutout, a 1.56 GAA, and a .942 save percentage. Put simply, Tic continues to live up to his reputation of playing his best when the stakes go up. Don't gamble with Tic: he'll take your money, your shirt, your car keys, and your girl. Believe it.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NOR Roy, (4) , 2:29
    NOR Angelidis, (18) (Wright), 4:38 (SH)
    ADK Pither, (9) , 16:43 (PP)

    Third Period

    Tokarski, Mathieu Roy, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. Angelidis has obliterated his career best statistics this season playing a very well rounded, power forward's game with 18 goals, 35 points, a +19 rating in 69 games. He's also tied his career high of 151 penalty minutes, to boot.

    Norfolk moves into 3rd in the East Division via the win percentage tiebreaker over Charlotte and are now 5 points back of 2nd place Hershey with 3 games in hand. They also maintain a 5 point gap on 5th place Binghamton with 2 games in hand and they've expanded their lead on the Atlantic's 4th place team, Worcester, to 8 points with 2 games in hand. With 11 games left to go in the regular season, Norfolk has 86 points, meaning they likely need just 2-4 points to realistically insure a playoff spot, and they control their own destiny in terms of moving up to 2nd in the Division to try to clinch home ice in the first round.

    But, the degree of difficulty goes up this weekend. Norfolk faces Manchester Friday and Saturday before traveling to Charlotte on Sunday. The Monarchs are a solid 2nd in the Atlantic Division and Charlotte has refused to go away all season long.

    One other note: with their victory tonight the Admirals moved past their point total (84) from all of last season, with another 22 points still up for grabs on the schedule. After a rough start to its affiliation with Norfolk, the Lightning's farmhands have improved each season.

    Orebro 2 @ Sodertalje 3 (OT)
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Mattias Carlsson scored 1:23 into overtime to cap a 3-2 Sodertalje comeback victory over Allsvenskan club Orebro. Elsewhere, MODO defeated Vaxjo 1-0 in overtime, allowing Sodertalje to move into first place in the Kval till Elitserien by virtue of the goal differential tiebreak. Sodertalje and Vaxjo have 10 points in the standings while MODO sits at 9. Sodertalje draws Vaxjo on Friday.

    Rock bottom (?)


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the loss, including a softie to Frans Nielsen that would've made Dieter Kochan himself blush.

    19:14 NYI Grabner (31), unassisted(SH)(EN)

    Nate Thompson was the game's second star.

    This feels like last season, and that's not a good thing. The Lightning could not buy a win at this time late last season and fell like a rock out of the playoff hunt. With 9 games left to go, the Lightning have an 11 point lead on 9th place, but even that doesn't feel safe with 3 games against the Canes on the schedule. The division is gone. An opportunity to hang a banner has been squandered. Right now, the Lightning just need a win, any win, to try to stabilize their sagging fortunes, and it feels like the team won't be able to beat anyone until Steve Downie or Ryan Malone return to the lineup. The Lightning look stale and lost, and it feels like only a shakeup in the lineup will work. Nobody can find the back of the net. Stupid decisions keep getting made defensively. And, now, you even have the likes of Sean Bergenheim making undisciplined plays and Roloson giving up Dairy Queen Blizzards. It's a near total collapse, and I don't care if the Lightning outshot the Islanders 38-28 if you keep giving up shorthanded 2-on-0's, the number of shots matters little.

    Blair Jones had 3 shots and 2 blocked shots in 10:42.

    Mattias Ritola will have to wait to graduate from prospect status next season.

    Montreal Juniors 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5
    D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play
    Season Totals: 57 GP, 11-29-40, +26, 30 PIM
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM

    Montreal gave Landry the night off as they prepare for the playoffs. Montreal will be the No.2 seed and play 15th seeded Halifax. As the fifth seed, Gatineau will play Chicoutimi. Janosik came within two goals, one assist, and three points of setting career highs in those respective categories.


    Tri-City Americans 4 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 3 (OT)
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    With Tri-City: 33 GP, 17-27-44, +6, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM

    TC won their third game in a row to finish the season. As the fourth seed they’ll play No.5 Vancouver in the first round. Ashton set career highs in goals, assists, and points in his final junior regular season.

    Spokane Chiefs 6 @ Portland Winterhawks 3
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 71 GP, 53-62-115, +26, 48 PIM

    So close. Johnson needed three points to tie Kings prospect and Medicine Hat Tigers forward Linden Vey for the league scoring title. As it was, Johnson got a late assist and an empty net goal to come within one point of sharing the Bob Clarke Trophy. He finished the season with career highs in games, goals, assists, points, and plus/minus. His previous career high for points was 71, set last season in 64 games. Johnson did win the WHL goal scoring title. Spokane will play Chilliwack in the first round thanks to Vancouver’s 5-0 win Sunday over Everett, which propelled the Giants into fourth.

    Florida Everblades 5 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 3
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 45 GP, 11-13-24, -9, 33 PIM
    G Jaroslav Janus: Win, 34 saves on 37 shots
    Season totals: 27 GP, 12-13-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .912 sv%, 0 SO

    Janus stopped 34 shots in his return to ECHL Florida to give the ‘Blades a win in their final road game of the regular season and a three game sweep of the Gladiators. Janus has won three of his last four decisions. Meanwhile, Hutchings was scoreless for the third straight game. Florida is now one point behind fourth place South Carolina with a game in hand. The ‘Blades will play their final six games of the season at home, including the last three against South Carolina. They’ll get sixth place Wheeling, who is three points behind the ‘Blades, for three games before the South Carolina series.

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Fargo Force 4 (SO)
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 46 GP, 20-34-54, +26, 24 PIM

    Mullin had two helpers in regulation then scored in the shootout to help Fargo to a win at home. Both of Mullin’s assists came in the third period – the last shorthanded – as Fargo mounted a comeback on the Storm. The Force improved to 13-10-3 at home; they’re 18-9-1 on the road. They remain tied for third in the West, one point behind Omaha. Tri-City is in the Western Conference cellar.


    Guelph Storm 4 @ Plymouth Whalers 3
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, +2, 6 PIM (boarding double minor, high sticking)
    With Guelph: 24 GP, 13-12-25, -6, 42 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 27-29-56, -6, 75 PIM

    Panik scored his first goal since returning Friday from a sprained ankle. Guelph, who is now done for the regular season, clinched the Western Conference’s seventh seed and avoided playing top-ranked Owen Sound in the first round. They’ll face Saginaw, who won the West Division. Panik set career highs for goals, assists, points, and PIM.

    London Knights 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 6
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador sat out as Jordan Binnington got his second straight start as top-seeded Owen Sound wanted to get their No.1 going again before the playoffs. With the Attack’s regular season over, it’s unlikely Zador will see much - if any - ice time in the post-season. Schemitsch is could be back when Owen Sound faces London in the first round.


    Chilliwack Bruins 4 @ Tri-City Americans 6
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 70 GP, 52-61-113, +26, 48 PIM
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    With Tri-City: 32 GP, 17-27-44, +8, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 61 GP, 33-38-71, -4, 106 PIM

    TC finally got the better of Spokane after the Chiefs had beat the Americans five straight times. They also broke the Chiefs' 10 game win streak. Johnson broke a personal two game scoreless streak with his 112th and 113th points of the year. His 52nd goal of the year put him one ahead of Chilliwack’s Ryan Howse (Flames) for the league goal scoring title. Howse is out of games and Johnson’s lead on everyone else is secure. He has one game left and is two points behind Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey (Kings) for the league scoring title and Bob Clarke Trophy. Spokane plays at Portland Sunday; Vey is out of games. Spokane has clinched the three seed. Ashton, meanwhile, scored his 33rd goal of the year Saturday night. He has 17 points in his last 10 games. The Americans, who have clinched the four seed, will play either Chilliwack or Vancouver in the first round depending if the Giants win Sunday.

    Kamloops Blazers 1 @ Prince George Cougars 5
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-2-3, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM

    Connolly extended his point streak to five games with a three point night in the final game of Prince George’s regular season. He has 10 points in those five games. The Cougars will play second-seeded Kelowna, the B.C. Division champion, in the first round. By winning Saturday PG avoided the eighth seed and playing powerhouse Portland. Kelowna had the fourth most points in the conference. After all the talk about Connolly’s durability he played under a microscope of sorts during the season. And while he did miss two weeks with a knee sprain (he was expected to miss a month), he proved to be every bit the offensive weapon he was expected to be when the Lightning chose him sixth overall last summer. His other games missed were due to his inclusion on the Canadian WJC squad. He set career highs for goals and points this year.

    Regina Pats 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 4
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon completed their regular season with a win over Regina. Zahn set career highs for games, assists, points, and plus/minus. The Blades captain hopes to raise the Ed Chynoweth Cup at the end of the playoffs as Saskatoon is the clear favorites going into the post-season as the league points champion.

    Florida Everblades 5 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 2
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (high sticking), 3 SOG
    Season totals: 43 GP, 11-13-24, -10, 33 PIM

    Bobby Goepfert stopped 42 shots a day after stopping 45 shots to again lead the Everblades to a road win. Florida is now seven points ahead of ninth place Gwinnett. They are three points behind fourth place South Carolina in the East with two games in hand. Florida and South Carolina will finish the year with a three game series in the Sunshine State. The ‘Blades play Gwinnett again on Sunday in their last road game of the regular season. They then have six games at home to close the year.
