The Bobcats scored twice in the second period to break open a 1-1 game before a sellout crowd and NESN audience. Harvard did not receive any votes in the latest USCHO poll.

I give the Admirals a ton of credit for mounting a serious third period comeback bid in a tough barn. Blair Jones is officially on fire with 8 points in his past 4 games.

Sudbury Wolves 0 @ Barrie Colts 5
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM

Plymouth Whalers 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 4
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (slashing)
Season Totals: 21 GP, 4-8-12, +13, 8 PIM
Panik hasnâ€™t scored in three games. With Dale Mitchell returning to the Spits from the Toronto Marlies, his ice time may take a bit of a hit.
Flip. The. Script.
Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 34 shots and stopped both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session for the big shootout win.

After frittering away 3-4 points already this season by allowing opponents to tie a game late and then losing in the shootout, the Lightning flipped the script to steal 2 points from Minnesota and stay unbeaten in regulation at home.
Steve Downie had a big goal to key the comeback and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 11:49. He's 5 games from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.
Zenon Konopka had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 7:17. And, thankfully, he chose not to commit suicide by fighting Boogard.
Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and was 75% on draws in 11:54. He brought some jump back to the lineup.
James Wright was -1 with 1 shot in 12:41.
Victor Hedman had 1 shot in 24:02 in his first game back from the concussion. He was wildly out of position on Minnesota's first goal, but was decent otherwise.
