    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season totals: 52 GP, 22-42-64, 24 PIM

    The Vees fell to eight points behind the Vipers for first in the Interior Conference after losing 3-2 Saturday. Although the score was close, the shot count wasn’t – Vernon had 43 shots to just 15 for Penticton. The Vees are now tied with Salmon Arm for second place.

    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (interference), 2 SOG
    Season totals: 33 GP, 15-23-38, +17, 20 PIM

    Fargo exacted some revenge on Omaha for the Lancers beating the Force 2-1 Friday night. Mullin had an assist in that game – his first game back from injury – but did not find the scoresheet Saturday. Mullin did not convert his shootout attempt. Fargo won the shootout 1-0 in seven rounds.

    Season Totals: 27 GP, 16-4-1-1, 3.28 GAA, .885 sv%, 1 SO

    Schemitsch broke a three game scoreless streak with an assist on the Attack’s final goal. His career high for assists is 36, set last season in 62 games. He hasn’t had a goal since opening night, but has been solid defensively all season. Meanwhile Richard Panik extended his point streak to six games with a primary assist on Guelph’s only goal.


    Tri-City Americans 2 @ Portland Winterhawks 7
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, -4, 2 PIM (tripping)
    With Tri-City: 11 GP, 6-11-17, +5, 24 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 40 GP, 22-22-44, -7, 68 PIM

    TC came into the game four points behind Portland for first in the U.S. Division and ended the game in third, one point behind Spokane. Ten minutes into the first period the Winterhawks were up 3-0 and they went on to put up 54 shots and post a snowman against the Americans. This game turned ugly as there were four fights in the last minute of the game, including one after the final horn. Ashton is minus-6 in his last three games.

    Kelowna Rockets 0 @ Prince George Cougars 3
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 28-19-47, -7, 18 PIM

    Prince George completed a two-game weekend sweep of Kelowna with a 3-0 victory Saturday. The Cougars entered the weekend nine points behind the Rockets for second in the B.C. Division. Connolly now has a three-game point streak.

    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +1, 7 PIM (roughing, fighting vs. Neil Tarnasky)
    Season totals: 53 GP, 2-13-15, +18, 121 PIM

    Greenville Road Warriors 4 @ Florida Everblades 3 (SO)
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out for 3 months - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 2-0-2, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 31 GP, 9-7-16, -8, 23 PIM

    Florida came into this all-important three game series with Greenville two points behind the Road Warriors for the division lead. After beating Greenville Wednesday, the Blades surrendered the final two games Friday and Saturday and with the point earned for a shootout loss Saturday, find themselves three points behind now. Former Barrie star Alex Hutchings had two goals for Florida, but it was his miss as Florida’s 12th shooter that enabled Greenville to get the extra point in the shootout. Hutchings had scored in the fourth round of the shootout, which tied the extra-extra session at one goal apiece. Greenville won the shootout 4-3 in 12 rounds. Florida had a 3-1 lead midway through the third period after Hutchings' goals, but Greenville scored 32 seconds later to make it 3-2, and tied it on the power play with five minutes remaining in regulation.

    Of Note: With Mike Smith being assigned to AHL Norfolk by Tampa Bay, speculation is Jaroslav Janus will return to the Everblades shortly. No announcement has been made as of Saturday night.

    Bowling Green Falcons 1 @ #16 Western Michigan Broncos 3
    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, Even, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 0-6-6, +13, 44 PIM

    The Broncos extended their unbeaten streak to 13 games and ran their record to 15-6-9 with a 3-1 win over Bowling Green. Next weekend Western faces a tough test to keep the streak alive with a trip to Oxford, Ohio, for two games with the #13 Miami Redhawks.

    St. Lawrence Saints 3 @ Cornell Big Red 4 (OT)
    F Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 1-5-6, +12, 22 PIM

    Cornell scored with 15 seconds left in regulation to force overtime before scoring 2:38 into the extra period to knock off St. Lawrence. The Big Red have now won three straight games and are unbeaten in their last six. Gotovets (pictured) is scoreless in 12, but is tied for the team lead with a plus-12 rating.

    Providence Friars 1 @ Vermont Catamounts 7
    F Matt Marshall, VRM: DNP
    Season totals: 23 GP, 2-0-2, -4, 4 PIM

    Vermont (6-15-5) won big over HEast opponent Providence. The win snapped a four game winless streak for the Catamounts. Next week they travel to #15 Maine for a weekend series with the Black Bears.

    More late third period horrors in Norfolk.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 20 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    BNG Smith, (6) (Benoit, Locke), 18:53 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (15) (Harju), 12:35

    Third Period
    BNG Smith, (7) (Greening, Locke), 1:01
    NOR Labrie, (5) (Angelidis, Berry), 1:55
    BNG Wick, (9) (O'Brien, Schira), 19:47

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie was the game's third star.

    For the second game in a row, Norfolk gives up a late third period goal to the Senators. Last night it allowed Binghamton to steal a point before falling in overtime. Tonight, it took at least a point away from the Admirals in the form of a regulation loss. Norfolk's a rather pitiful 3-5-1-1 in their last 10 games and are fading in the chase for second place in the division. That's bad news, because they now look destined to have to face either Wilkes-Barre/Scranton or Hershey with the Pens and Bears holding home ice, which looks to be a recipe for a quick playoff exit. With 29 games left to go in the regular season, it's time for the Admirals to start to get serious.

    For his part, Blair Jones extended his scoring streak to 5 games, while Johan Harju extended his to 4.

    Marc-Andre Bergeron did not play tonight as he has been recalled by the Lightning with ex-Admiral Mike Lundin ailing from a groin injury. In his place, the Lightning have gone ahead and completed the assignment of netminder Mike Smith to the Admirals.

    AIK 3 @ Sodertalje 2
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 17 GP, 4-10-0, 0 SO, 2.89 GAA, .890 sv%

    Oscar Steen of AIK scored a power play goal 27 seconds into the third period to lift AIK to a 3-2 win over Sodertalje in a key late season Elitserien matchup. Ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll had a goal in the match for Sodertalje, which was his team leading 19th of the season, which is tied for 4th best in the league.

    Sodertalje still holds a slim 1 point lead over Timra for 8th on the Elitserien table. But, with regulation wins counting as 3 points in Sweden, the truth is that the race for the final playoff spot and for avoiding the Kval till Elitserien promotion/relegation tournament is a near dead heat between 5 teams heading into the final 8 games of the regular season. Sodertalje sits in 8th at 63 points, Timra in 9th with 62, MODO in 10th with 61, and AIK and Frolunda are just one regulation win back at 60 points and occupying 11th and 12th, respectively. Unfortunately for Sodertalje, they have the second worst goal differential in the league (-25), so the tiebreak scenarios are not favorable to their cause.

    The Elitserien is off until 2/17/11 for the LG Hockey Games.

    Trail Smoke Eaters 6 @ Penticton Vees 0
    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 22-42-64, 22 PIM

    A tough home loss for Penticton, who allowed Trail to pull within four points of them in the Interior Conference. The Vees remain in second in the conference, six points behind Vernon.


    Omaha Lancers 2 @ Fargo Force 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 32 GP, 15-23-38, +18, 18 PIM

    Mullin returned to Fargo’s lineup after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. The Force’s leading scorer managed an assist, but Fargo couldn’t get a win over Omaha.


    Gatineau Olympiques 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 4 (SO)
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 2 Hits
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 6-19-25, +9, 26 PIM

    Janosik was scoreless as the Olympiques built a 3-1 lead, then let it fade away in the third period before gaining the second point in a shootout.

    Montreal Juniors 1 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Quebec Remparts 0
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 9-26-35, +18, 22 PIM

    Trevor Parkes (undrafted) scored midway through the first period and the Juniors made it hold up against Patrick Roy’s Remparts.


    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Erie Otters 5
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

    After spotting the Otters a 4-0 lead, the Greyhounds mounted a furious comeback to make it 4-3, then gave up an empty netter. Beukeboom left the game early with a possible concussion after taking an elbow to the head. The Soo captain missed several games earlier this season with a concussion. A St. Pete Times report states Brock had one before being drafted, too. Brock’s father, former NHLer Jeff Beukeboom, had his career cut short by post concussion syndrome caused by multiple head injuries throughout his NHL career – the worst of which was a sucker punch from the Kings Matt Johnson.


    Spokane Chiefs 2 @ Tri-City Americans 5
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM (slashing)
    With Tri-City: 10 GP, 6-11-17, +5, 22 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 39 GP, 22-22-44, -7, 66 PIM

    Ashton played his 10th game with the Americans and earned his 16th and 17th points with the club. Tri-City is 8-1-1 in those 10 games. With the win, TC leapfrogged Spokane into second in the division, four points behind Portland. The Ams and Winterhawks play Saturday.

    Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Prince George Cougars 4
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 28-18-46, -9, 18 PIM

    Connolly has six points in four games since his return from a knee injury.

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, Even 0 PIM
    Season totals: 29 GP, 0-6-6, +13, 42 PIM

    Despite outshooting the Falcons 32-15, the Broncos managed just one point in Friday's game. The tie did run Western's unbeaten streak to 12.

    Harvard Crimson 0 @ #3 Yale Bulldogs 1

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-9-16, +3, 26 PIM

    Another well played game for Harvard against a top-ranked opponent despite the shutout loss. This young team is playing with a lot of fight.

    Clarkson Golden Knights 2 @ Cornell Big Red 5

    D Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 1-5-6, +11, 22 PIM

    Cornell handled Clarkson easily for the second time this season to sweep the season series against the Golden Knights. The Big Red take on St. Lawerence tomorrow night.

    Providence Friars 1 @ Vermont Catamounts 1 (OT)

    F Matt Marshall, VRM: DNP
    Season totals: 23 GP, 2-0-2, -4, 4 PIM

    Marshall sits as Vermont picked up their fifth tie of the season drawing even with Providence. The two teams play again tomorrow night.

    Greenville Road Warriors 3 @ Florida Everblades 2
    C Mitch Fadden: Did not play (out for 3 months - blood clot).
    Season totals: 37 GP, 15-36-51, -2, 34 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, -3, 2 PIM (slashing), 2 SOG
    Season totals: 30 GP, 7-7-14, -10, 23 PIM

    Greenville took Game 2 of a three-game set with Florida and took back their division lead from the Everblades. The Road Warriors scored twice in the third period to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 win. Former Quinnipiac star Brandon Wong scored the game winning goal for Greenville with just under four minutes left in the game. Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings was a team-worst minus-3 on the night. The teams will play again Saturday.

  • 7 years 32 weeks ago

    It shouldn't have taken falling behind by 2 goals for the Lightning to play with some urgency in a game with stakes this high.


    Dwayne Roloson allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    03:21 TB Purcell (11), Gagne (7), Hedman (18)
    09:09 WSH Backstrom (13), Ovechkin (33), Green (16)

    Second Period
    06:38 WSH Laich (10), Perreault (5), Beagle (1)
    08:25 WSH Ovechkin (20), Backstrom (35), Carlson (17)(PP)
    19:19 TB Clark (8), Purcell (23), Gagne (8)(PP)

    Third Period
    12:22 WSH Backstrom (14), Ovechkin (34), Chimera (11)
    19:22 WSH Chimera (8), Ovechkin (35), Backstrom (36)(EN)

    Simon Gagne was the game's third star, as his continued momentum should terrify the rest of the league.

    Put simply, though, the Capitals wanted this game more. They knew they'd have a serious uphill battle if they fell 7 points back in the division and they played with urgency. The Lightning didn't, and had a heightened, false sense of security after Varlamov gave up a soft serve in a waffle cone to Purcell on the game's opening goal. It wasn't until the Lightning fell behind 3-1 that they decided to try to match Washington's intensity, and by then it was too late. Hopefully they don't pay too high a price for the lesson they had to learn tonight. They can't read their press clippings or get too happy with themselves, even with a win as big as their victory against Philly. Every night is a big game against a good opponent in the NHL, especially when people start looking at a club as possibly being the best in the conference, which has the effect of painting a target on the backs of that club.

    Norfolk escapes after blowing another lead late.

    NOR-4 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NOR Bergeron, (1) (Vernace, Jones), 7:22 (PP)
    BNG Butler, (22) (Greening, Locke), 10:13
    NOR Harju, (18) (Giliati, Pouliot), 16:56
    NOR Giliati, (6) (Pouliot, Bergeron), 19:11

    Third Period
    BNG Wiercioch, (3) (O'Brien, Smith), 7:59 (PP)
    BNG Daugavins, (11) (Condra, Locke), 18:55

    NOR Bergeron, (2) (Pouliot, Quick), 3:03 (PP)

    Marc-Andre Bergeron and Stefano Giliati were the game's first and second stars.

    Norfolk got the two points, which is the big thing, but it continues to be a recurring problem for the Admirals when it comes to protecting leads late. They were outshot 14-3 in the third period and allowed 2 goals to the Senators in the frame. They capped a bad period by allowing the equalizer with 1:05 left to go in the period, and thereby surrendered a point to the division rival they currently have in their rear view mirror. Not good. The Admirals still look in line to be a playoff club, but they may be an early out if they can't get better defensively. Getting Mathieu Roy back yesterday was probably an excellent start to solving that puzzle.

    With 2 goals and 1 assist tonight, Marc-Andre Bergeron is signaling that he's starting to round into form. After posting just 1 point in his first 6 games as an Admiral, Bergeron has 7 points in his last 7.

    Johan Harju's goal tonight marked the first time he's scored goals in back-to-back games since late November. One wonders if Harju is enjoying an All-Star bounce or if possibly a certain GM or Assistant GM had a heart-to-heart with Big Joe after reports surfaced in the Swedish papers he was unhappy.

    Norfolk holds a 2 point lead over Charlotte for 3rd in the East Division and a 7 point lead over 5th place Binghamton. A win tomorrow night (in regulation) could really put Bingo in a bad way, and can help Norfolk try to close the gap on surging second place Hershey.
