    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Brayden Point understands it's a learning experience.

    The 19-year-old center was admittedly nervous but settled in during his professional debut with the Crunch, but Syracuse fell to the Rochester Americans, 2-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "There are definitely some shifts where our line was able to control the puck down low for a bit, but, like I said, there's a lot to learn," Point said. "I'm just going to try to soak up as much as I can from my linemates and the guys on the bench, and hopefully keep getting better."

    RCH-2
    SYR-0

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the hard luck loss. His save percentage has inched up to .906 for the season, despite the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period

    Third Period
    RCH McPherson, (2) (Catenacci, Ruhwedel), 4:04
    RCH Catenacci, (12) , 19:52 (EN)

    Gudlevskis was the game's second star. First star Andrey Makarov, who was Andrei Vasilevkiy's tandem-mate with the Russian U20 WJC team once upon a time, stopped 32 shots for the shutout.

    ATO signee Brayden Point was -2 with 3 SOG's in his pro debut. As noted yesterday, there are a handful of other potential ATO's which could be added to the Syracuse roster this week, including graduating Quinnipiac senior forward Matthew Peca.

    The loss, coupled with Hershey's win, puts Syracuse back into the 3rd seed, 1 point back of the Bears. 9 games remain on the regular season slate.

    When things go completely pear shaped...

    TB-0
    DET-4

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He was fairly sharp, although he seemed to let his focus waver a bit on the third goal, in which Nyquist beat out an icing call to one hand the puck on net.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    5:25 DET Andersson (2), (Quincey, Weiss)
    7:19 DET Abdelkader (23), (Nyquist)
    9:19 DET Nyquist (24), (Quincey)

    Third Period
    18:21 DET Glendening (11), (unassisted)(EN)

    The game today was almost inconsequential. Jason Garrison was lost at 3:43 of the First Period after being boarded by Justin Abdelkader. At best, it appeared that Garrison might have a sprained shoulder. At worst, you might have some more severe damage to that shoulder or to the collar bone, etc. Looked like weeks to me. Compounding the issue, Cedric Paquette severely hurt his left leg bounding into the post to break up an EN attempt by Abdelkader at the close of the game. That looked like end of season, to me. It's really a shame, too, because I though Dump Truck was one of the few bright spots in today's contest. As it is, best case scenario, the Lightning are going to limp through the final games of the regular season and hope that they get Coburn and Garrison back for the postseason. Worst case, neither will be ready. And Paquette? Let's just say it's a very good think Namestnikov has come on the way he has, because I'm not sure the Lightning will be getting Ceddy back until the Fall.

    The Lightning's division title hopes may have taken a mortal hit with the day's injuries, and their viability as a club that can have staying power in the playoffs has also potentially taken a nasty hit. Namestnikov will no doubt just slide into Paquette's roster spot, but there will likely need to be an emergency recall for Garrison while that situation sorts itself out. Garrison's a left sider, so while Luke Witkowski has gotten a look earlier this season, I'm left to wonder if perhaps Slater Koekkoek will get his first taste of the NHL now.

    As for the game, it was one of those contests where the circumstances that unfolded seemed to just suck the life right out of the Lightning. It didn't help that the officiating was awful. Abdelkader probably should've gotten 5 and the gate for the hit on Garrison, and there were several other boarding calls on Detroit that went completely uncalled in the First Period. The Lightning survived that, but never found their legs and eventually saw the game snowball against them in the Second Period as the Wings managed to get a couple of goals off delflections and that one-hander that aren't normal goals. I wouldn't call them fluky, but they're just not things you see often, and that has a way of knocking the wind out of your sails, too.

    Nikita Nesterov was -2 with 2 shots in 15:41. It was looking like he might be earmarked for a return to Syracuse at some point. Now, it's looking like he's going to be a regular in the team's top six the rest of the way in the regular season. His turnover led to Detroit's second goal, and he showed some signs of rust today, in my opinion. He had a harder time with the pace after being out of the lineup for so long. Hopefully, he catches back up quickly.

    Vladislav Namestnikov was -1 in 10:11. Like everyone in white not named "Paquette" or "Morrow", his energy was off tonight. The Lightning announced they were burning one of their last two full callups before the game to keep Vladdy on the roster the rest of the year. Wonder if they can get a "take-back" with what happened to Paquette.

    East-4 Yale Bulldogs 2 vs East-1 Boston University Terriers 3 (OT)
    East Regional Semifinals

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 32 GP, 2-7-9, +18, 48 PIM
    2013-2014 totals (USHL): 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    West-4 Quinnipiac Bobcats 1 vs West-1 North Dakota 4
    West Regional Semifinals

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 39 GP, 7-29-36, E, 27 PIM
    2014-2015 totals: 40 GP, 12-26-38, +4, 16 PIM

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 38 GP, 13-7-20, +11, 35 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    The storied career of Matthew Peca is over at Quinnipiac. The Bobcats’ co-captain was on the ice every other shift it seemed, creating multiple opportunities, but No. 3 North Dakota was clearly the best team on the ice and ran away with the win. No. 11 QU plays a defensive style and once they were down early and couldn’t capitalize on power plays the game was essentially over. Brendan O’Donnell and the NoDaks advance to the West Finals against conference rival St. Cloud State on Saturday night. O’Donnell had a nice set-up early to a teammate on Friday, but didn’t see the ice much outside of a late power play and the odd shift.

    While O’Donnell moves on in the tournament, Peca will likely move on to professional hockey. The Lightning will attempt to sign him in the coming days and bring him to AHL Syracuse for the stretch run and playoffs. Peca’s speed and compete-level was on display Friday night, as was his skill in the offensive zone and faceoff abilities. It’s possible he chooses the free agent route, but that doesn’t seem like the most likely scenario. He could also ask to join the Lightning immediately and burn the first year of his entry-level contract to put some money in his pockets. Peca is a must-sign for the Lightning and one of the bright spots in the organization beneath the NHL level.

    East-3 Minnesota Golden Gophers 1 vs East-2 Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs 4
    East Regional Semifinals

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Loss, 25 saves on 29 shots
    Season totals: 38 GP, 22-12-3, 2.42 GAA, .912 sv%, 5 SO
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    Though he wears Iron Man on his mask and has been known for his heroic efforts, Wilcox was made to look rather ordinary Friday night in No. 8 Minnesota’s loss to No. 7 Minnesota-Duluth. The junior netminder allowed four goals on the night, but there wasn’t much he could have done on any of them. The Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead on a cross-crease one-timer from the weakside that an unmarked UMD player potted into the empty side of the net. The second goal was a screened wrist shot from the point that was deflected down in the slot and bounced over Wilcox’s pad. Goal No. 3 was a cross-crease pass that his defenseman put in off his skate and the fourth goal was a double-tip on a point shot – and both tips were made by Gopher players.

    For his wonderful career at Minnesota, Wilcox deserved better in what was likely his final game. He’ll leave the Gophers with school records and a trophy case full of awards and start his professional career. While he could return for his senior season, he’ll have suitors for his services, starting with the Lightning, who own his rights. Wilcox does have the option to not sign with the Lightning and become a free agent this summer if he thinks he can get a clearer path to the NHL elsewhere. The Syracuse Crunch have a spot open with his name on it for the rest of this year and next should Wilcox sign with the Bolts. Like Peca, he could also choose to sign an NHL deal now and burn Year 1 of his entry-level contract. For now, the focus for Wilcox will be to remember his three years at Minnesota and the legacy he’ll leave there.
