    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 2

    Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3 @ Penticton Vees 2
    Silverbacks lead Best of 7 series 2-0

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 1-1-2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 1-3-4, 5 PIM

    O’Donnell had a goal and an assist, but the story of the game and the series thus far was undrafted goaltender Kris Moore of Salmon Arm. For the second straight game the Vees outshot the Silverbacks by nearly a 2-to-1 margin, but Moore, who lists former Lightning goaltender Corey Schwab as his greatest hockey influence in his player profile, made 40 saves and stole Game 2 for the underdogs. The series now heads the Silverbacks’ barn with the Vees in a big hole.


    Sioux Falls Stampede 7 @ Fargo Force 2
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
    Season totals: 42 GP, 19-29-48, +23, 24 PIM

    Mullin broke a two game scoreless streak, but the Force was hammered at home in an important game, 7-2 by Sioux Falls. The teams entered the game tied for third in the Western Conference at 60 points with Sioux Falls holding a game in hand. Fargo now sits alone in fourth, one point behind Omaha.


    Tri-City Americans 1 @ Kelowna Rockets 3
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM (high sticking, hooking)
    With Tri-City: 27 GP, 13-25-38, +8, 47 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 29-36-65, -4, 91 PIM

    Ashton’s streak of four games with at least two points came to an end, but he did manage his 29th goal of the season to put him within one of his career high of 30 – again. He thought he had his 29th goal two games ago, but a late scoring change took it away. Ashton’s goal Wednesday tied the game at one in Kelowna, but that’s all TC could manage. Rockets captain Tyson Barrie, son of former Lightning owner Len Barrie and once thought to be a certain draft target of the Barrie/Koules Bolts, had an assist in the game for Kelowna. The Avalanche draft pick has 54 points (10 goals) in 49 games this year.

    Saskatoon Blades 5 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 3
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +3, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season totals: 67 GP, 3-19-22, +33, 133 PIM

    Zahn has quietly established a career high for points in a season at 22. His plus-33 rating is “just” 28 better than his previous career high in that category. The overager and captain of the WHL’s top team is hoping for a contract at the end of the season from the Lightning. He has five points in his last three games and is plus-11 in those three games.

    By any means necessary.

    TB-4 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 3 goals on 31 shots and then stopped all 3 shooters he faced for the shootout victory. No save was bigger than Roloson's stop on Bryan Bickell on the overtime breakaway.

    First Period
    11:07 TB Stamkos (42), St Louis (53), Clark (16)
    16:43 CHI Kane (23), Toews (39), Sharp (29)
    19:44 TB St Louis (25), Stamkos (39), Hall (8)

    Second Period
    01:20 TB Purcell (16), Hedman (21), Gagne (12)
    09:39 CHI Sharp (34), Toews (40), Kane (37)

    Third Period
    03:30 CHI Toews (28), Hjalmarsson (6), Seabrook (34)


    TB- St. Louis

    Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis were the game's first and third stars. St. Louis scored the winner on his first shootout conversion in ages on a spino-rama chased with a double clutch backhander off the crossbar and in. Skills to pay bills.

    The importance of the win cannot be underestimated. The Lightning maintained pace 2 points back of the Capitals and hold a game in hand in Washington, and the schedule starts to open up a little for the Lightning after tonight. There are 15 games remaining in the season, and as of tonight only 4 of those games are against playoff-bound teams, although Carolina (3 games) and Minnesota are currently in 9th in their respective conferences at 2 points or less out of 8th. Still, you get the point. If the Lightning can't close this out in the last 15 games, they have nobody to blame but themselves.

    Blair Jones played 9:38 in the game tonight.

    Mission statement.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed just 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory. Tokarski is 7-2-2 since the start of February.

    First Period
    NOR Angelidis, (17) (Vernace, Berry), 11:51
    NOR Nelson, (7) (Angelidis, Roy), 19:59

    Second Period
    NOR Harju, (20) (Szczechura, Mihalik), 15:39
    NOR Barberio, (8) (Labrie), 17:59

    Third Period
    BNG Wick, (14) (Hoffman, Lehner), 2:12
    NOR Pouliot, (19) (Fornataro, Harju), 13:10 (PP)

    Mike Angelidis, Johan Harju, and Levi Nelson were the game's three stars. Harju became the second Admiral to hit the 20 goal mark this season. Blair Jones was the first, and Marc-Antoine Pouliot may be the next after scoring his 19th tonight.

    It's hard to under-emphasize the importance of tonight's win for the Admirals. The club regained its 4 point gap on Binghamton for 4th place in the East Division and cashed in a game in hand to move within 3 points of Charlotte for 3rd with 2 games in hand still remaining. Just as well, Hershey lost 3-2 to Worcester tonight, so Norfolk moved within 6 points of 2nd place with 3 games in hand on the Bears and they maintained a 5 point gap on the Sharks and Connecticut Whale in the worst-case scenario where a crossover into the Atlantic Division bracket becomes necessary. A loss tonight would have been a disaster for the Admirals, but now Binghamton is the club sweating as they hold a playoff spot by a slim, single point.

    There are 16 games remaining in the regular season. Norfolk faces these same Senators on Friday at Scope.

    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 1

    Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3 @ Penticton Vees 1
    Silverbacks lead Best of 7 series 1-0

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, 5 PIM

    O’Donnell returned after missing games 2-4 of the Vees’ first round series with Quesnel, but Penticton was shocked at home in Game 1 vs. Salmon Arm, 3-1. Penticton outshot the Silverbacks 41-22, but was stymied by goaltender Kris Moore (undrafted). Game 2 is tonight (Wednesday) in Penticton.


    Tri-City Americans 5 @ Kamloops Blazers 4
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM
    With Tri-City: 26 GP, 12-25-37, +8, 43 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 28-36-64, -4, 87 PIM

    Ashton had two assists in the first period to help TC to an early 2-0 lead, but the Ams had to fight back with three third period goals, including one in the last minute, to win the game. Ashton has a four game multipoint streak going in which he’s scored 10 total points. He has 13 points in his last seven games. He was originally listed with two goals and an assist in his last game against Vancouver, but that has been changed to one goal and three assists. Ashton’s career high for goals in a season in 30.

    Red Deer Rebels 7 @ Prince George Cougars 0
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 54 GP, 40-23-63, -7, 26 PIM

    Ouch. While Red Deer is second overall in the league, losing on home ice 7-0 is embarrassing any way you cut it. The Cougars, who were once comfortably in the playoff picture, are now tied for the eighth and final spot in the West at 62 points. They do have a game in hand on Kamloops, with whom they are tied, but Seattle is at 59 points and has a game in hand on Prince George. The Cougars are 1-8-0-1 in their last 10 games and need to turn things around. As captain of his home town team, there’s no doubt Connolly doesn’t want to go out like this. Likely 2011 top-3 pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and three assists Tuesday for Red Deer.

    KHL Western Conference Semifinals
    (1)Yaroslavl 4 @ (7)Dynamo Riga 2
    Yaroslavl Leads the Series 1-0
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 17-15-32, -3, 46 PIM
    Playoff totals: 7 GP, 0-2-2, +1, 6 PIM

    Ex-NHLers Karel Rachunek and Josef Vasicek each had 1 goal and 1 assist to lead Yaroslavl to a 4-2 Game One victory over Dynamo Riga. Ex-Lightning forward Robert Petrovicky had a goal in the match for Riga.

    It hurts on so many levels.

    TB-1 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson stopped 29 of 30 shots before allowing 1 of 2 shooters to convert for the shootout loss.

    First Period
    12:30 TB Bergenheim (13), St Louis (52), Stamkos (38)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    14:28 WSH Semin (24), Wideman (25), Ovechkin (44)


    WSH- Ovechkin
    TB- NONE

    Roloson was the game's third star.

    The Lightning had this game won twice, only to have it snatched away from them. The first was on what was really a lucky stick save by Brayden Holtby reaching back on a Simon Gagne bid at an open net. The second was a disallowed goal by Vincent Lecavalier that was absolute baloney. I've seen teams get away with a lot worse than the contact Martin St. Louis made with his skate after being tripped through the crease. So, it would be easy to feel like the Lightning were robbed, but the refs didn't make the Lightning go out with a whimper in overtime and the shootout. It was a weak effort to close a game where the team, in general, really rose to the occasion. The Devils, Bruins, and this game were really unfortunate. This team could very easily have taken all 6 possible points in those games, rather than just 1.

    The Lightning are 2 points back of Washington in the division now with 1 game in hand. This tough bit of schedule ends with the Blackhawks, who are white hot, before the opposition gets a little easier (on paper).

    Mattias Ritola played 4:58.

    Blair Jones played 6:20 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot.

    The young guys simply weren't going to play much in a game of this magnitude.

    Fargo Force 2 @ Team USA 1
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 41 GP, 18-29-47, +25, 24 PIM

    Mullin was scoreless for the second straight game, but the Force got the win against the USA development team. At 60 points, Fargo is tied for third in the Western Conference with Sioux Falls, who has a game in hand on Fargo. The Force is one point out of second and five points out of first, but the teams in front of them, Omaha and Dubuque, have games in hand on Fargo. The Force have 11 games left in the season.


    Montreal Juniors 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 3 (SO)
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 53 GP, 11-27-38, +23, 28 PIM

    Landry did not participate in the shootout, which was won 3-2 by the Foreurs. The Juniors have a four point lead on Drummondville for first in the TELUS West Division with five games to go.


    Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 4 (SO)
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He is expected to return this week. Guelph has clinched a playoff spot and is tied with London for seventh. The key will be to avoid top-seeded Owen Sound or Kitchener in the first round. The Storm has five games left.


    Tri-City Americans 5 @ Vancouver Giants 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 2-1-3, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    With Tri-City: 25 GP, 13-21-34, +5, 43 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 54 GP, 29-32-61, -7, 87 PIM

    Ashton is now within one goal of his career high for a season, set two years ago with Lethbridge in 70 games. He has already set career highs for assists and points. Sunday night Ashton scored once in the first period and again on the power play late in the third to give the Ams a big win in one of the WHL’s toughest barns. TC is clinched a playoff spot and currently sit in fourth in the West, comfortably ahead of Vancouver in fifth and well behind Spokane in third. TC has eight games left.

    Admirals get Daug'ed out.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals on 36 shots for the loss. It's better than the 7 goals he allowed in his first start of the season, at least.

    First Period
    BNG Sweetland, (4) (Benoit, Hoffman), 8:15 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG Daugavins, (14) (Gryba, Locke), 1:01

    Third Period
    BNG Daugavins, (15) (O'Brien, Wick), 4:10
    NOR Szczechura, (14) (Fornataro, Pouliot), 10:12 (PP)
    BNG Greening, (14) (Locke, Benoit), 15:45

    Norfolk has 2 more 3-games-in-3-nights sets this season, so unless Cedrick Desjardins comes back from injury, Norfolk probably has a couple of more starts left for Janus.

    5th place Binghamton closes to within 2 points of the Admirals and they hold 1 game in hand in the East Division playoff race. Norfolk also lost ground to Charlotte, which beat Manchester today. The team is now 3 points back of the Checkers with 2 games in hand. In the crossover, Norfolk holds a 7 point lead on Worcester.

    17 games remain in the regular season. Norfolk draws Binghamton again at The Scope on Wednesday and again on Friday.

    Owen Sound winger Mike Halmo had three assists as the Attack picked up the win over Peterborough.


    Spokane Chiefs 4 @ Prince George Cougars 2
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 53 GP, 40-23-63, -3, 26 PIM

    Connolly was held scoreless as Prince George dropped their second straight to Spokane in as many nights. Possible future Lightning prospect Tyler Johnson of Spokane, who has been reported to be signing a contract with the Lightning in the next day or two, had a goal Saturday for the Chiefs, his league-leading 48th.

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 7
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS:0-1-1, +6, 0 PIM
