    Snake bitten and still struggling.

    ADK-5
    SYR-4 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 34 shots for the OT loss. After getting his save percentage up as high as .906, Gudlevskis' recent struggles have dropped him back down to the goaltending Mendoza line of .900.

    Overtime

    Jonathan Marchessault and Brayden Point were the game's first and third stars. Throw in that Matthew Peca had his first multi-point night as a pro, and you had a hat trick of important Lightning forward prospects producing. Therein lies the silver lining of tonight's loss: the offense is starting to come around, finally. That doesn't take all the sting out of coughing up a pair of 2 goal leads, but it's something.

    Syracuse sits 2 points behind Hartford for the division lead, which will yield the East #3 seed in the playoffs.

    Quarterfinals

    Quebec completed the four-game sweep of the Islanders, winning 5-2 Thursday night on PEI. The Remparts have now won five straight games since losing Game 6 to Cape Breton in the first round. Adam Erne’s five-game goal streak came to an end, though he had an assist. The Remparts will wait to see who they play next; the other three series are still going.

    Done in by a softie.

    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    Game One

    DET-3
    TB-2

    Detroit Leads the Series 1-0

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 14 shots for the loss. What an ugly stat line. Only one of the goals was soft, but as they often are, a soft goal ended up being the margin in the game. Bishop's got a lot to prove, as tonight was his first NHL playoff debut. The good news, I suppose, is that Bishop hasn't wet the bed in two straight games all season long. So, I'd expect his best next time out.

    First Period
    9:03 DET Datsyuk (1), (Quincey, Helm)
    14:31 TB Boyle (1), (unassisted)(SH)

    Second Period
    0:08 DET Datsyuk (2), (Helm)(PP)

    Third Period
    5:50 DET Glendening (1), (unassisted)(SH)
    8:26 TB Nesterov (1), (Callahan, Killorn)

    Brian Boyle was the game's third star.

    The Lightning probably deserved better in this game, outshooting Detroit 46-14. Their speed earned them a lot of possession on the forecheck and nearly a half dozen odd man rushes in the game, but they struggled to convert and they didn't get much puck luck on second opportunities despite the amount of rubber they threw Mrazek's way. I'd expect the Lightning get the tape of this game and decipher one or two subtle changes to their approach that may yield them a little more success on that front. From a confidence standpoint, though, after what happened last year against Montreal, this team desperately needs to get Game Two.

    The power play needs to not go 0-for-7. It didn't look terrible, but they need to get the payoff if the Wings are going to keep taking infractions.

    The stats say Hedman and Stamkos had a much better game than the eye test indicated, so I will refrain from giving my "best players need to be best players" speech for not. If Stammer keeps getting 8 shots on goal a night, I like his chances of getting a breakthrough sooner rather than later, and Hedman had his moments, although I believe he has another gear above the one he showed tonight, to be sure.

    Nikita Nesterov had a goal and was +1 with 3 shots and 3 hits in 17:01. I thought he was one of the 2-3 best d-men on the Lightning tonight along with Coburn and Stralman.

    The team just dissolved in the Third Period. What a catastrophe.

    Adam Erne extended his goal-scoring streak to five games with a second period marker as the Quebec Remparts moved to within one win of eliminating the Charlottetown Islanders in their QMJHL quarterfinal series. Erne came into the game with at least two goals in his last four games played. After struggling against Cape Breton in the opening round, the Remparts seem to have found their groove. They can eliminate the Islanders Thursday.

    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    Guelph managed to stay within a goal of the Soo on Tuesday night, but it wasn’t enough to win the game or extend the series as the Greyhounds completed the sweep, 3-2. The Storm were down 3-0 in the game before climbing back to 3-2 on a shorthanded goal early in the third period. That was as close as they came. The Soo now moves on to take on Connor McDavid and the Erie Otters in the Western Conference Finals. The Otters swept the London Knights, 4-0, and are 8-1 overall in the playoffs. Sault Ste. Marie is 8-0. This one will be a doozy. On the other side of the bracket, Oshawa is up 2-1 on Niagara and North Bay leads Barrie, 2-1. The much-anticipated Erie-Soo match-up may not get started for a while, but should be worth the wait.

    Tight, costly loss.

    SYR-1
    UTI-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the hard luck loss, as Syracuse continues to struggle to manufacture any goal support.

    First Period
    SYR Lynch, (3) (Point), 7:55

    Second Period
    UTI Shinkaruk, (16) (O'Reilly, Sanguinetti), 4:45 (PP)
    UTI Conacher, (10) (O'Reilly, Shinkaruk), 15:21 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Stabbed in the back by ex Bolt Prospect Cory Conacher. Say it ain't so.

    With Hartford winning again today, the Wolf Pack have tied Syracuse for the division lead in points, pushing the Crunch down to the 5th seed (hopefully temporarily). Presumably, the team will start to get some roster stability starting this week once the Lightning start returning to full strength for the playoffs. That may just mean that Witkowski gets returned to Syracuse, but hopefully it means no more shuttling of players back and forth for a little while and the offense can begin to rebuild some continuity.

    Providence Friars 4 vs Boston University Terriers 3
    National Championship

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 2-7-9, +19, 58 PIM
    2013-2014 totals (USHL): 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    Providence won its first national championship with a 4-3 win over John MacLeod and the Terriers in the final of the Frozen Four Saturday. The Friars were down 2-1 and 3-2 in the game before coming back to win, aided by an odd goal where BU goaltender Matt O’Conner dropped the puck between his legs and accidentally kicked it into his net. MacLeod took an interference penalty with the Terriers up 2-1 and Providence scored with a few seconds remaining in the power play to tie the game at 2. MacLeod finishes a fine freshman season with nine points and a plus-19 rating. He’ll be a big part of BU moving ahead, likely without project No. 2 overall pick Jack Eichel.
