Stanislav Lascekâ€™s 14 game point streak, the third longest in the QMJHL this year, came to an end Sunday as Chicoutimi dropped their second straight game, falling 4-1 to expansion St. John. Lascek was minus-one for the game and had two shots on goal. It was the third game in as many nights for the Sagueneens. Also in the QMJHL Sunday, Rimouski was crushed 8-0 by rival Quebec. Mark Tobin was minus-3 on the night, bringing his team-worst plus/minus rating to minus-22. In the OHL, Radek Smolenak misses his second straight game, a 9-8 Kingston win over Ottawa. The Frontenacs have scored 17 goals in their last two games, so it doesnâ€™t appear they miss Smolenakâ€™s 10 goals and 20 points on the year just yet.

Stan Lascek is now alone on top of the QMJHL scoring race after getting two assists in a 4-3 overtime loss to Halifax Saturday night. His Chicoutimi teammate Maxime Boisclair was scoreless for the game, giving Lascek a two point lead with 51 points in 23 games. Lascek now has a league-leading active scoring streak of 14 games in which he has accumulated 8 goals and 23 assists. Boisclair's QMJHL season-high 21 game streak ended Saturday. Lightning fans haven't seen a statistical performance like Lascek's out of one of their CHL prospects since Brad Richards' 186 point MVP season for Rimouski in 1999-2000.
