NA Juniors Game Night: 1-23-2014

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Quebec Remparts 6 @ Gatineau Olympiques 2

C/W Adam Erne, QUE: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 3 Hits, 0/1 FO
Season totals: 37 GP, 19-33-52, E, 51 PIM
2012-2013 Season: 68 GP, 28-44-72, +11, 67 PIM

Adam Erne has moved back to wing with the return of Mikhail Grigorenko to Quebec, which is Erne’s natural position. He was even playing the point on the power play in the third period, per @EliteScouting on Twitter. Former third rounder Anthony Duclair (NYR) had a hat trick in the game to hit 40 goals for the season. The Rangers signed him earlier this season.

Ontario Hockey League

Saginaw Spirit 1 @ North Bay Battalion 5

D Dylan Blujus, NB: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM
Season totals: 33 GP, 3-13-16, E, 40 PIM
2012-13 totals: 68 GP, 2-27-29, -8, 57 PIM

Blujus hasn’t been the most consistent scorer in the last two seasons, but he’s currently on a streak of seven points in eight games. He’s also plus-14 over the last seven games of that streak, which has enabled him to get back to an even rating for the season. He is due a contract this spring or he goes back into the draft.

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Barrie Colts 7

D Jake Dotchin, BAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 9-17-26, +17, 87 PIM
2012-13 totals: 66 GP, 4-18-22, E, 81 PIM

Dotchin was scoreless as Barrie pounded Dotchin’s former team, Owen Sound, 7-2. Tyson Fawcett (undrafted, 5’6” forward) had a hat trick and an assist for the Colts.

NHL Game Night: 1-23-14 Senators at Lightning

Harder than it needed to be.

OTT-3
TB-4 (SO)

Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 36 shots but blanked Ottawa on 3 shootout attempts for the W. He made the key saves he needed to, but I suspect he'll be even sharper next time out.

15:12 OTT Karlsson (12), (MacArthur, Spezza)(PP)

Second Period
3:30 TB Crombeen (2), (Hedman, Filppula)
16:57 OTT MacArthur (18), (Spezza, Ryan)(PP)

17:42 OTT Neil (6), (Smith, Karlsson)

Overtime
NO SCORING

Shootout
OTT- NONE
TB- Kucherov

Victor Hedman and BJ Crombeen were the game's first and third stars.

Good news/bad news:

The good news is that, after getting a few days off to rest the bones, the Lightning absolutely dominated 5-on-5 play territorially for about the first 55 minutes of regulation. That was Lightning hockey, and for almost the entire contest you had the impression the Lightning were cruising to victory even though they couldn't get staked to more than a one goal lead. The other bit of good news is that the Lightning appear to have made it through an entire game without someone getting dinged up. It's a beautiful thing.

The bad news is that the Lightning allowed Ottawa to hang around because special teams, putting Johnson's SH goal aside, were pretty darned atrocious. The PK just can't seem to buy a break right now and the PP looked as predictable as an 80's sitcom, including telegraphing one-timers on an Overtime 4-on-3 opportunity. Once Stamkos returns, that should help the PP a lot, but it's getting clearer Yzerman's shopping list at the deadline needs to include an ace PK'er, be that in the form of another veteran d-man or a forward. I'd give my right arm for a time machine to bring back a mid-2000's Freddy Modin or Jassen Cullimore right about now to help get that mess fixed.

The Lightning again tie Boston for tops in the Atlantic Division although the B's hold 2 games in hand.

Mark Barberio was -1 with 2 penalty minutes in 15:20. His penalty was a costly delay of game call where he shot the puck out of play while under duress from 2 Ottawa forecheckers. After two strong games, tonight was a little step back for Mark.

J.T. Brown had 4 shots and 1 hit in 11:44. Off night for his line. He had a really nice hit on Da Costa in the corner in the First Period, showing surprising pop for his size.

Nikita Kucherov had 2 blocked shots in 10:54. Ottawa seemed to be targeting the rookie early, and he was ineffective through much of regulation. He shanked a good chance in the Third Period and snuck a pass through to Filppula for a partial breakaway in Overtime, so he still had moments, and his quick release in the shootout delivered the second point for the Lightning.

Season totals: 23 GP, 11-7-4, 2 SO, 2.31 GAA, .921 sv%

Andrey Vasilevskiy posted his second shutout of the season for Ufa in a 1-0 goaltending duel against Alexei Murygin and Khabarovsk. The game was a dead heat deep into the Third Period where former Senators second rounder Alexei Kaigorodov scored the game's only goal with 3:58 left in the contest.

Magnitogorsk built a 4-0 lead partly on the strength of 2 helpers from former Blue Jackets pick Sergei Mozyakin and held on for dear life in their 4-3 victory over Novokuznetsk. Novokuznetsk's comeback bid was keyed by a goal from former Penguins and Islanders farmhand Kurtis McLean.
