Bartanupalooza runs wild... Marek Bartanus scored his first goal of the season tonight in Owen Sound's 4-3 win over Sault Ste Marie. Bartanus played well for the Lightning in both Traverse City and Lightning camp despite struggling with the team's conditioning testing and is looking to earn a contract by next summer's signing deadline.

Crowley was even and had 4 penalty minutes in the game.
