Season Totals: 32 GP, 7-10-17, -19, 10 PIM

AHL Game Day: 1-5-19 Marlies at Crunch

Crunch done in by poor opening period.

TOR-5
SYR-2

Eddie Pasquale allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

First Period
6:09 TOR Brooks (6), (Mueller, Gagner)(PP)
12:23 TOR Gagner (9), (Rosen, Bracco)(PP)
19:24 TOR Oleksy (2), (Timashov, Leblanc)

Second Period
0:07 SYR Verhaeghe (15), (Gaunce)
7:08 SYR Conacher (14), (Gaunce, Verhaeghe)(PP)
17:02 TOR Mueller (19), (Gagner, Rosen)(PP)

Third Period
18:50 TOR Brooks (7), (Gagner)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe was the game's third star.

The Crunch fell behind 3-0 in the First Period and that was ultimately the margin. They made a valiant attempt to climb back into it in the Second Period, but Toronto got their third power play goal toward the end of that frame, which really took the starch out of the rally.

CHL Game Night: 1-4-19

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Baie-Comeau Drakkar 5 @ Victoriaville Tigres 3

C/W Gabriel Fortier, BC: 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 5/15 FO, 1 Hit, *First Star*
Season Totals: 38 GP, 17-33-50, +23, 21 PIM
17-18 Totals: 66 GP, 26-33-59, -11, 59 PIM

Fortier was First Star, posting a goal and two assists to help the Drakkar to a 5-3 road win in Victoriaville. Combined with his four-point night Monday, Fortier is up to seven points in his last two games after a six-game goalless streak. He reached the 50-point plateau for the second time in his QMJHL career and is quickly approaching his career-high of 59 points, set in his draft year last season.

Rimouski Oceanic 3 @ Halifax Mooseheads 6

D Radim Salda, RIM: Did not play
Season Totals: 19 GP, 4-11-15, +3, 20 PIM
17-18 Totals (SJ): 62 GP, 10-31-41, -37, 78 PIM

Radim Salda has not returned from the World Junior Championships where his Czech team was eliminated by the USA in the quarterfinals, 3-1. He finished the tournament with a minus-3 rating and no points in three games as the Lightning’s lone prospect at the event.

Ontario Hockey League

Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Kitchener Rangers 4

C/W Alexey Lipanov, KIT: 0-3-3, +2, 2 PIM, 0 SOG, 3/11 FO, *First Star*
Season Totals: 31 GP, 7-10-17, -19, 10 PIM
17-18 Totals (BAR, SBY): 55 GP, 14-25-39, -14, 10 PIM

Alexey Lipanov had three primary assists to help Kitchener beat visiting Owen Sound and improve to 4-0 after the Christmas break. Lipanov, who already holds a contract from the Lightning, has struggled to produce points for much of the season but this may be the breakout he’s been looking for to get back to production expectations. With the win, Kitchener pulled within five points of the Attack for third in the Midwest Division with a game in-hand. (Kitchener Rangers photo)
