    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Sherbrooke Phoenix 3 @ Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 7

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    With Sherbrooke: 37 GP, 20-25-45, -7, 34 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 56 GP, 21-38-59, -12, 50 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    In a possible playoff preview, the Huskies crushed the Phoenix, 7-3. If the two should meet in the first round, Sherbrooke gets the home ice advantage.

    Quebec Remparts 4 @ Rimouski Oceanic 5

    W Adam Erne, QUE: 1-1-2, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 13/30 FO, 0 Hits
    Season totals: 60 GP, 41-45-86, +21, 102 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

    Adam Erne and Quebec finished their regular season with back-to-back losses to the Oceanic. The good news is they won’t have to face Rimouski in the playoffs for a while as the Oceanic is the 1-seed and Quebec the 4 (of 16).

    Ontario Hockey League

    Windsor Spitfires 1 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 12

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 63 GP, 21-24-45, -15, 100 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 2-0-2, +6, 0 PIM
    With SSM: 25 GP, 15-35-50, +32, 47 PIM
    With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM

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

    Anthony DeAngelo was back in the Soo’s lineup after resting two games, and scored two of the Greyhounds’ 12 goals to extend his point streak to 24 games. The Soo plays Kitchener on Sunday, two points up on Oshawa for the best record in the OHL. DiGiacinto had an assist for Windsor Saturday and finishes the season with 45 points. He somehow escaped Saturday with only a minus-1 rating. His teammate Trevor Murphy was minus-10. DiGiacinto could sign with AHL Syracuse if the Crunch want some extra forward depth.

    Western Hockey League

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 9

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 60 GP, 38-49-87, +6, 46 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Needing a win to stay alive in the playoffs (plus needing some help), Moose Jaw was unable to stay with the conference-leading Wheat Kings and fell hard, 9-2. It wouldn’t have mattered anyway as Swift Current won again and clinched the final playoff spot in the division. Point scored a goal for the ninth-straight game. He could take that streak to AHL Syracuse if the Crunch want to add skill to their lineup. Point will return to Moose Jaw next year due to AHL age restrictions, but can join the AHL now because his junior team’s season is over.

    No. 18 Harvard Crimson 4 vs No. 15 Colgate Raiders 2
    ECAC Finals

    F Brian Hart, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 7-9-16, +4, 19 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 30 GP, 7-8-15, -8, 20 PIM

    Harvard claimed the 2015 ECAC tournament championship with a 4-2 win over Colgate. The Crimson will now play in the national tournament as part of the field of 16. Harvard’s win likely ensures Matt Peca and Quinnipiac will receive an at-large big into the field of 16.

    No. 12 UMass-Lowell Riverhawks 3 vs No. 3 Boston University Terriers 5
    Hockey East Finals

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 31 GP, 2-7-9, +16, 48 PIM
    2013-2014 totals (USHL): 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    Boston University won the Hockey East tournament championship on the back of Jack Eichel’s two goals and assist Saturday. Eichel was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. MacLeod and BU will likely get a 1-seed in the national tournament.

    No. 5 Denver Pioneers 5 vs No. 1 North Dakota 1
    NCHC Third Place Game

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 13-7-20, +11, 35 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    UND lost back-to-back games for the first time this season, falling in the third place game Saturday against Denver. UND is still a lock for the national tournament.

    No. 15 Minnesota Golden Gophers 4 vs Michigan Wolverines 2
    Big 10 Finals

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 22 saves on 24 shots, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 37 GP, 22-11-3, 2.39 GAA, .913 sv%, 5 SO
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    Wilcox was named the Big 10 tournament Most Outstanding Player after making 22 saves in the finals against Michigan. Minnesota held a 1-0 lead in the second period before Michigan scored two power play goals. The first on a deke from in close that snuck under Wilcox’s arm, and the second on a back-door finish he had no chance of stopping. Minutes after Minnesota went up 3-2 in the third period Wilcox made a series of big saves on the Wolverines to maintain the lead. He was solid the rest of the way as the Gophers iced the game with an empty net goal. Minnesota and Wilcox had a lot of expectations on them coming into the year and have ridden a roller coaster of inconsistency for the majority of the season, but they’ve found their groove lately and their tournament performance was indicative of their potential. Watch out for the Gophers in the national tournament as they try to make their way back to the championship game. They lost to Union in the finals last year.

    Tanner Richard was the game's third star. Dylan Blujus had his 3rd multi-point game of the season, ushering in a brief period of #Blujuspalooza.

    Syracuse may have lost the war tonight, but at least the AHL's abbreviation for them isn't an acronym for Urinary Tract Infections. Escalate the rivalry with Grade A scalding rhetoric. It's always good for the soul.

    Trailing by one late in the third period, the Syracuse Crunch threw everything it could on net.

    The shots either hit a body in front, Utica goalie Joe Cannata deflected the puck wide, or the shots just missed the mark, as the Crunch couldn't find the equalizer in a 4-2 loss to the Comets at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I was shocked it didn't go in," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "(Mike Angelidis) had a chance to bury one, (Ryan) Martindale had it all alone in front. I haven't seen the replay, so I don't know if he just missed the net or it was blocked. I thought for sure we were going to tie it there and make something out of nothing, but we weren't able to."

    Sherbrooke got two goals from Habs prospect Daniel Audette en route to a 6-3 road win Friday. Sherbrooke is sixth of 18 on the league table. The top 16 make the playoffs.

    Rimouski Oceanic 4 @ Quebec Remparts 3

    W Adam Erne, QUE: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 7/16 FO, 2 Hits

    DiGiacinto and Windsor have one game left this season after losing 7-2 in Sarnia Friday. The Spitfires are out of the playoff race. They play at Sault Ste. Marie Saturday.

    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    What a gutsy performance by Moose Jaw. Needing a win to stay alive in the playoff race, the Warriors scratched and clawed their way to a 7-6 shootout win over the conference’s top team. Point was the first shooter for Moose Jaw in the shootout, but had his attempt saved. Moose Jaw needs Swift Current, who is two points ahead of the Warriors, to lose its final game while the Warriors win theirs against the Wheat Kings.

    Calgary Hitmen 2 @ Kootenay Ice 1

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Calgary is one point ahead of Medicine Hat for the division title with both teams having one game remaining.

    Note: Dominik Masin (OHL Peterborough) is out for the season after undergoing surgery for facial fractures.

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-1-1, +4, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

    2013-2014 totals (USHL): 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    MacLeod returned to the BU lineup after a 3-game absence and notched an assist in the Terriers’ semifinal win over UNH. BU will play No. 12 UMass-Lowell for the conference championship.

    No. 18 St. Cloud State Huskies 3 vs No. 1 North Dakota 1
    NCHC Semifinals

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    SCSU scored twice in the final minute of the first period and held on for the upset win over No. 1 North Dakota. UND will play Denver in the third place game on Saturday. Miami plays the Huskies for the championship. UND will get an at-large bid to the national tournament.

    No. 17 Harvard Crimson 5 vs No. 7 Quinnipiac Bobcats 2
    ECAC Semifinals

    F Brian Hart, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

    2014-2015 totals: 40 GP, 12-26-38, +4, 16 PIM

    Hart and Harvard scored an upset win over top-seeded Quinnipiac in the ECAC semifinals, moving the Crimson on to the finals against Colgate. As for Peca and Quinnipiac, they will wait to see if they receive an at-large bid to the national tournament. They need some help in the form of Harvard winning the ECAC and the higher seeds taking their conference tournaments. There’s a good possibility Peca played his last collegiate game. If he chooses to sign with Tampa Bay, he could join AHL Syracuse as soon as his collegiate career is officially over.

    No. 13 Minnesota Golden Gophers 3 vs Ohio State Buckeyes 0
    Big 10 Semifinals

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 39 saves on 39 shots, shutout, *First Star*
    Season totals: 36 GP, 21-11-3, 2.39 GAA, .913 sv%, 5 SO
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    Wilcox recorded his sixth shutout of the season with a herculean performance in the Big 10 semifinals. The shutout was the 13th of his career, tying the school record. The junior goaltender, who was named a Big 10 Second Team All-Star earlier this week, stopped all 22 shots he faced in the third period with the Gophers nursing a 1-0 lead until halfway through the final stanza. Minnesota advanced to play Michigan for the championship game. A win propels them to the national tournament.

    With time winding down in overtime, Slater Koekkoek made a bold prediction.

    The Syracuse Crunch defenseman was next to hit the ice during the three-on-three portion of the extra session, but took a moment to tell fellow rookie Dylan Blujus that he would end the game.

    Koekkoek's words proved to be prophetic, as his game-winner 4:52 into overtime lifted the Crunch to a 2-1 victory over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. Syracuse has won four straight.

    "Blujus and I were sitting on the bench, and (assistant coach Trent) Cull had just said I was the next D out," Koekkoek said. "I looked over at Blue and I said 'Don't worry Blue, I got this one.'"

    Tampa Bay's ownership of the Atlantic Division version of the Red Wings continues unabated.

    DET-1
    TB-3

    Ben Bishop allowed just 1 goal on 31 shots for the victory. Again, with a playoff-type atmosphere and caliber of opponent, Bishop laid down a marker that he's going to be a serious postseason player.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    1:22 TB Stralman (7), (Hedman, Palat)
    6:57 DET Tatar (26), (unassisted)(PP)

    Third Period
    10:31 TB Killorn (15), (Hedman, Drouin)
    19:32 TB Stamkos (40), (Boyle, Palat)(EN)

    Bishop and Victor Hedman were the game's first and second stars.

    Hedman was a beast, and was the best player on the rink, in my opinion. Very active diffusing plays at the defensive end of the rink and showed a lot of speed and savvy on the rush all game long. He probably should've had a goal on a 2-on-1 with Drouin early in the game that would've made his stat line even more impressive. As it was, he settled for two helpers. Steven Stamkos wasn't as dominant as Hedman all game long, but he dominated Kronwall to get the insurance goal at the end. Don't you wish you had the talent to be a "little off" most of the season, and still hit 40 goals with 10 games left to play? Just to make sure I fully and thoroughly beat the horse to death: when those two are the Lightning's best players, the Lightning can't be defeated.

    Meanwhile, Drej Palat emerged from the hyperbaric chamber and sneezed out a couple of helpers of his own. Just chill, until the next episode.

    The Lightning are now 1 point shy of the preseason target of 96 points to comfortably make the playoffs. The victory also pulled Tampa Bay to within 2 points of Montreal for the top spot in the Atlantic Division with neither team holding a game in hand. Remember, a tie almost certainly goes to the Lightning on ROW.

    Vladislav Namestnikov played 12:51 in the match. I'm shocked how blank his scoresheet looks, because he was noticable on the rink tonight.

    Syracuse goes Koekkoek in Overtime.

    WBS-1
    SYR-2 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 28 points for the victory. That's just 1 goal allowed in the last couple of games.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    SYR Gourde, (25) (Dotchin, Courtnall), 8:17

    Third Period
    WBS Kostopoulos, (14) (Pouliot), 11:22

    Overtime
    SYR Koekkoek, (4) (Marchessault), 4:52

    Slater Koekkoek and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. If you look at the last 11 games, Slater has 1 goal and 9 points in that span, with a +6 rating. He's definitely turned a corner in his development in the past few weeks, as he's now sprinkling in the offensive contributions with his reasonably steady defensive play.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Erie Otters 7 @ Windsor Spitfires 4

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 61 GP, 21-23-44, -13, 100 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    Likely 2015 top-5 picks Connor McDavid (3 assists) and Dylan Strome (1+3) combined for seven points in front of a sellout crowd in Windsor, leading the Otters to a 7-4 win. Windsor has been eliminated from playoff contention, which makes DiGiacinto available for AHL Syracuse or ECHL Florida should the Lightning want him to keep playing.
