CHL Game Night 10/10: Jung Sits Again

It's going to be extremely difficult for Torrie Jung to get back between the Kelowna pipes any time soon.

Calgary Hitmen 0 @ Kelowna Rockets 5
G Torrie Jung, KEL: Did Not Play

Jung's competition in the Rocket's net, Kristofer Westblom, won his third straight game in his third straight start. All he did this time was shut out the Canadian Hockey League's top-ranked team, the Calgary Hitmen. Westblom stopped 28 shots in the win, earning first star honors.

Westblom and Jung began the year alternating, but the overager Westblom appears to have secured the No.1 job. This could put an end to the constant Westblom trade speculation, according to Kelowna broadcaster Regan Bartel, as the club has two of the best netminders in the conference and Bartel thinks the Rockets could be just as solid keeping both goalies. While this would be fine for Kelowna, and certainly no one would point a finger at them for it, we're looking at it from a developmental perspective and Jung will be missing valuable playing time.

NHL Game Night 10/10: Panthers at Lightning

3-0-0 is a great start. However, I was not impressed with the team's play tonight.

FLA-1
TB-2

Make no mistake about it, Johan Holmqvist stole the win tonight with a 30 saves on 31 shots effort that included multiple odd man rushes and breakaways. He got the win despite the Lightning being outshot 31-23 by an inferior opponent.

First Period
Tampa Bay 9:03, Chris Gratton 1 (shorthanded) (Mathieu Darche, Jason Ward)

Second Period
Florida 4:04, Ville Peltonen 1 (Olli Jokinen, Cory Murphy)
Tampa Bay 10:36, Chris Gratton 2 (power play) (Paul Ranger, Michel Ouellet)

Third Period
NO SCORING

NCAA Exhibition 10/8: Quick Makes Michigan Debut

The NCAA exhibition season got underway this past weekend with two Lightning prospects in action.

Western Ontario 1 @ No.10 Michigan 6
D Kevin Quick, MICH: 0-0-0, +2, 2 SOG

Quick, a freshman, made his Michigan debut for the Wolverines and was involved in some scoring chances but did not register a point in the exhibition game. According to MGoBlue.com, Quick jumped into a play and took a drop pass from Michigan captain and Phoenix Coyote draft pick Kevin Porter, firing a one-timer blocker side on the UWO goaltender Brad Topping, who got a piece of the shot. Michigan held their Blue vs. White game on Saturday. Quick, who is wearing No.27, did not register a point and was even with a shot on goal in the intrasquad game for Team White, who lost 6-3.

Trois-Rivieres 0 @ U-Mass 6
D John Wessbecker, UMASS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM, +1

The University of Massachusetts opened their 2007-2008 season with an exhibition win over Trois-Rivieres. Wessbecker, a junior and former seventh round pick, is coming off a sophomore year in which he registered one point on a goal.
