    Joseph sustained a significant cut on his leg early in the game, per Rogers TV, and left the arena on a stretcher put in an ambulance. He tweeted: "People who wanted to know, everything's fine! I'll know more tmr after the operation ! Thanks everyone for the support !" No timetable has been announced for his return, or if he will return. If not, that's a huge blow for the Sea Dogs.

    Sens prospect Thomas Chabot scored in the first overtime to advance Saint John to the second round of the QMJHL playoffs.

    Sherbrooke Phoenix 1 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 4
    QMJHL First Round

    Ontario Hockey League

    Oshawa Generals 0 @ Kingston Frontenacs 6
    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    Kingston wins best-of-7 series, 4-1

    C Anthony Cirelli, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 10/24 FO
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 2-3-5, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 61 GP, 21-36-57, -16, 27 PIM

    Oshawa’s season ended in Game 5 against the Fronts, losing 6-0. Cirelli, who captained the Gens for the latter part of the season, had a fine year – his first as a scoring liner. He’s now a candidate to join AHL Syracuse, at least in practice.

    Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Kitchener Rangers 5
    Western Conference Quarterfinals
    Kitchener wins best-of-7 series, 4-1

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 63 GP, 16-26-42, +15, 105 PIM

    The Rangers eliminated the Spits Friday night with a 5-2 win. DiGiacinto, who practiced with AHL Syracuse last season when Windsor was done, could return to the Crunch shortly. He’s up for a contract this spring, but his lackluster second half has added some doubt that will happen. At the least, the Crunch/Lightning can give him an extended evaluation in the next couple weeks.

    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 11 PIM
    Season totals: 60 GP, 5-19-24, +1, 46 PIM

    After shutting out Peterborough in Game 4, North Bay goalie Jake Smith (undrafted) stopped 34 of 35 shots to earn an overtime win for the Battalion and put the Petes on the brink of elimination. Game 6 is Sunday in Peterborough.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Any Syracuse Crunch momentum was short-lived.

    The Crunch’s power play tallied its second game-tying goal with 5:24 remaining in regulation. The Marlies’ Matt Frattin answered 52 seconds later and the goal stood up as the game winner, as Syracuse fell to Toronto, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The loss snaps the Crunch’s season-high five-game win streak.

    “We score a huge goal to tie it at 3-3, the bench was excited, and we were fired up,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “We just didn’t get the job done on the (next) shift. We’ve got to come back strong. We can’t get scored against there. That’s the way it is.”

    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 2-3-5, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 61 GP, 21-36-57, -16, 27 PIM

    Down 3-0 in the game and in the series, Oshawa showed its heart and battled back to tie, then beat the Fronts in overtime, 4-3. Cirelli had a goal and an assist for the second straight game, and was named second star for the second straight game. Game 5 is in Kingston Friday.

    North Bay Battalion 6 @ Peterborough Petes 0
    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    Best-of-7 series tied, 2-2

    D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 0 SOG
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 0-3-3, +2, 12 PIM
    Season totals: 57 GP, 8-32-40, +24, 50 PIM

    Season totals: 60 GP, 5-19-24, +1, 46 PIM

    North Bay goalie Jake Smith (undrafted) stopped all 29 shots he faced to help the Battalion tie the series, 2-2, and regain home-ice advantage. He was named first star. Lightning prospects Dominik Masin and Matt Spencer combined for eight penalty minutes.

    Erie Otters 6 @ Saginaw Spirit 4
    Western Conference Quarterfinals
    Erie leads best-of-7 series, 3-0

    W Mitchell Stephens, SAG: 1-1-2, -1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 12/25 FO
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 2-1-3, -5, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 20-19-39, -3, 14 PIM

    Erie completed its four-game sweep if Saginaw with a 6-4 win Thursday. They beat the Spirit 6-3 on Tuesday, setting up the elimination opportunity. Mitchell Stephens closed his junior season with a goal and an assist. His season was plagued by an early, significant injury, but was highlighted by good production in the second half after a good showing with Canada at the WJCs. He’s probable to join AHL Syracuse for its stretch run.

    Lightning dying on the vine after Stralman injury.

    MTL-3
    TB-0

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the loss. A lesser goaltender gives up 4 goals with the amount of turnovers and poor gap control the Lightning defense had tonight.

    First Period
    9:11 MTL Desharnais(10), (Andrighetto, Emelin)

    Second Period
    0:52 MTL Mitchell(10), (Pateryn, Emelin)

    Third Period
    17:32 MTL Danauly(4), (Mitchell)(EN)

    Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

    The Lightning just look like a hot mess without their top four defensemen in tact. It was that way when Garrison was hurt recently, and it's even worse at the moment without Stralman. The new pairings look disjointed and the team is having to play certain players bigger minutes that simply cannot handle it. Matt Carle should to be playing over 23 minutes a night in the NHL anymore like he did tonight. And, tonight, it became glaringly obvious that Stralman is the glue that holds the Lightning together in terms of gap control. He was the one Lightning defender who routinely stepped up at his blueline. Tonight, you had the Lightning retreating off their own blueline all the way down to the top of the circles, which resulted in the early goal by Mitchell in the Second Period that was tonight's soul-crushing gut punch.

    With Florida winning tonight, the Lightning fall out of first place in the Atlantic Division. With 3 games left in the 10-game segment of the season, they still need at least 3 points, although the SunSports team pointed out their "virtual" magic number is 4. Either way, this team would have a hard time not at least backing into the playoffs. The issue for the last 5 games of the regular season, though, is figuring out pairings and a minute rotation on defense that actually looks cohesive and doesn't play like a train wreck destined to get bounced out in the first round. Three games into life without Stralman, they clearly haven't found that formula yet, and time is running out.

    Slater Koekkoek was -1 with 3 shots in 14:27. He surrendered at least 2 Grade A chances that Bishop had to bail him out on with turnovers and poor positioning. It'll be a learning process with Slater, but I don't see another defenseman on the roster who, athletically, can grow into bigger minutes the way that Slater can unless the finally make the decision to give Hedman every other shift.
