    Make that four goals in four games for the Lightning’s 2016 first rounder, Brett Howden. The Moose Jaw captain was one of four Warriors to score in the first two periods as they built a 4-0 lead. Medicine Hat scored three times in under a minute early in the third period, then tied and won the game. That won’t sit well with the Moose Jaw faithful. The Tigers outshot the Warriors 27-6 in the third period and 3-0 in overtime.

Possible 2017 first rounder Nikita Popugaev scored the game-winner with just over five minutes left in regulation. Popugaev is a 6-5, 205-pound winger. He’ll go early in June.

    Ex-NHL'er Ilya Kovalchuk potted a hat trick for SKA as they beat the stuffing out of Slovan Bratislava 6-0. Nikita Gusev was scoreless in 12:54 in the match but he did have a team high 6 shots on goal in the contest.

    Halifax Mooseheads 2 @ Charlottetown Islanders 9

    W Otto Somppi, HAL: 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM, 3 SOG, 2 Hits, 6/13 FO
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 4 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 59 GP, 13-33-46, -15, 25 PIM

    Somppi scored his first of the season early in the first period to give Halifax a 1-0 lead … but it was all downhill from there for the Mooseheads, who lost on the island, 9-2. Somppi added his first assist late in the game, but by that time it was 7-2. Czech-born Filip Chlapik (Senators) had a hat trick for Charlottetown.

    Shawinigan Cataractes 3 @ Sherbrooke Phoenix 2 (SO)

    W Dennis Yan, SHAW: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM, 9 SOG, 1 Hit

    2015-2016 Season: 62 GP, 32-37-69, +8, 86 PIM

    Yan was scoreless in regulation, but converted his shootout attempt. His nine shots on goal were nearly double the next highest Cataracte.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Oshawa Generals 5

    C Anthony Cirelli, OSH: 3-1-4, +4, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 19/25 FO, *First Star*

    2015-2016 Season: 62 GP, 21-38-59, -15 27 PIM

    Cirelli had a hat trick and four points, and was plus-4 and 19 of 25 on faceoffs for good measure. Not bad for the Oshawa captain. Two of his goals came in the third period, which started with a 2-1 Gens lead.

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4 @ Sarnia Sting 3 (OT)

    W Boris Katchouk, SSM: 0-3-3, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    OHL Note: Mitchell Stephens was assigned to Saginaw by the Lightning Sunday. He, Cirelli, Joseph, and Ingram are expected to push for spots on Team Canada for World Juniors.

    Western Hockey League

    G Connor Ingram, KAM: Loss, 22 saves on 25 shots
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 1-2-0-0, 2.03 GAA, .917 sv%, 0 SO
    2015-2016 Season: 61 GP, 34-15-5-4, 2.61 GAA, .922 sv%, 4 SO

    Ingram completed the very rare three-in-three for a goaltender, dropping a decision in Vancouver, 3-1, on Sunday. He lost Friday night 1-0, but bounced back with some goal support Saturday in a win over Victoria.

    Fourth game in five nights for the barnstorming Lightning.


    Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    5:54 TB Nesterov (1), (Filppula, Drouin)
    19:25 NSH Fisher (1), (Neal, Subban)

    Second Period
    5:56 NSH Subban (1), (Ribeiro)(PP)
    12:37 NSH Ribeiro (1), (Forsberg)(PP)
    15:18 TB Filppula (1), (Bishop, Wisniewski)

    Third Period
    3:07 TB Conacher (1), (unassisted)
    15:37 NSH Bass (1), (Neal)

    I'm having flashbacks of when Koules and Barrie owned the team and they signed up for a zillion preseason games every year to try to make a little extra scratch because they were so strapped. That's not the case with Vinik, but this is just a lot of games and a lot of travel in the span of less than a week.

    Matthew Peca had 1 shot, 1 hit, and 3 blocked shots in 14:20. He was also 46% on 13 draws.

    Mitchell Stephens had 1 shot and 1 hit in 13:07. He was also 38% on 8 draws. Kind of interesting to see him play center rather than wing, which may be the better fit for him as a pro.

    Yanni Gourde had 1 hit in 12:16.

    Jeremy Morin had 1 shot in 9:10.

    Slater Koekkoek had 1 hit and 2 blocked shots in 20:13. I need to go back and add up all his ice time this week, but suffice it to say he might deserve some sort of iron man trophy. Tonight the Lightning decided to give him a full load after easing him in with the mid teens of minutes earlier in the week. 3 games in 5 nights is still a lot of work.

    Luke Witkowski was +1 with 11 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 blocked shot in 14:12. Witkowski also deserves an iron man trophy of his own.

    JYP 5 vs. SaiPa 2
    Saku Salminen, SaiPa, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 7 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 0 PIM

    Saku Salminen assisted on an early Second Period goal before it all went off the rails for SaiPa in their 5-2 loss to JYP. He played 13:22 in the match and was also 47% on 15 draws. 36 year old Jani Tuppurainen led the way for JYP with 2 goals and 3 points.

    Season totals: 6 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 8 PIM

    Spartak Jr.'s goal 1:53 into the Third Period was the lone tally in their 1-0 win over Loko Jr. Oleg Sosunov did not dress for the match, in which the youngsters from Yaroslavl iced 7 defensemen.

    Lightning miss a second straight preseason shutout by an eyelash.

    CAR-1 (OT)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed just 1 goal on 28 shots for the OT win. The lone blemish was a goal surrendered in a 6-on-4 situation with 1:05 left in regulation. If the performances of the past two nights by Gudlevskis and Vasilevskiy are any indication, Yzerman might have the flexibility he needs if he does choose to move Ben Bishop for cap reasons.

    First Period
    5:21 TB Johnson (1), (Palat, Nesterov)[/b]

    Second Period

    Third Period
    18:55 CAR Skinner (2), (DiGiuseppe, Rask)

    1:38 TB Palat (1), (unassisted)

    Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson were the game's first and second stars, as the usual suspects start to calibrate their game for the regular season.

    Very interesting lineup tonight from the Lightning and a pleasantly surprising performance. Tonight's group mixed in more NHL forwards, at least on the wings, but they pretty much went with Syracuse's defensive corps plus Nikita Nesterov, who may be a bubble player in this camp. It helps when you have Vasilevskiy behind you, but to almost get a shutout with that group is not too shabby.

    Tanner Richard had 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 17:35. He was also 33% on 12 draws. Please, Jeff Halpern, teach these kids to win faceoffs.

    Brayden Point had 4 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 16:09. He was also 33% on 9 draws. Sorry, son, you don't get to score a goal every game.

    Cam Darcy had 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 11:31 and was 30% on 10 draws. PLEASE, Jeff Halpern, teach these kids to win faceoffs.

    Joel Vermin had 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 18:44.

    Gabriel Dumont had 1 shot, 4 hits, and 4 blocked shots in 14:02. For a guy who didn't score, his stat line still looks quite active, I have to say.

    Henri Ikonen had 1 blocked shot in 14:15. The window is closing on the young Finn.

    Brian Hart had 4 hits in 10:14. He then hit someone with an aluminum chair and put them in the Sharpshooter.

    Luke Witkowski was +1 with 4 hits and 2 blocked shots in 21:10. He's not giving any quarter in camp to anybody.

    Dominik Masin had 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 2 hits in 19:55.

    Matt Taormina had 1 shot in 19:46.

    Dylan Blujus had 3 blocked shots in 19:29.

    Jake Dotchin had 2 penalty minutes, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 19:10.
