Vancouver Giants 0 @ Prince George Cougars 3
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
The Cougars are starting to pick up steam, led by Tyrell, who scored Prince Georgeâ€™s second and third goals against Vancouverâ€”both on the power play.
OK, I'm officially concerned with how the team is performing on the road.
Johan Holmqvist played well stopping 32 of 35 shots in the loss, although he had the benefit of several posts and crossbars.
NY Rangers 7:40, Nigel Dawes 3 (Paul Mara, Brendan Shanahan)
Tampa Bay 6:28, Vincent Lecavalier 6 (penalty shot)
NY Rangers 10:45, Jaromir Jagr 3 (power play) (Michal Rozsival, Chris Drury)
NY Rangers 13:29, Brendan Shanahan 2 (power play) (Chris Drury, Jaromir Jagr)
Results from Lewiston, Seattle, Lethbridge, and Victoria on the flip.
Radek Smolenak finally broke the scoresheet for Lightning prospects as his point shot on the power play was banged home by Travis Lisabeth. Mississippi had started the season 0-for-15 on the power play. The Sea Wolves would ultimately earn their first victory of the 2007-2008 season with a 4-3 shootout win over the visiting Pensacola Ice Pilots. Zbynek Hrdel was held off the score sheet for the second consecutive game, while Marek Kvapil was apparent scratch for the contest. Neither Smolenak nor Hrdel was used by Mississippi head coach Steffon Walby during the shootout, with Travis Lisabeth finally converting as Walby's sixth shooter.
Kind of a heartbreaker. They probably deserved a point out of this one.
Jonathan Boutin stopped 27 of 30 shots faced but took the loss allowing a bad short side goal in the third that was the decider.
