Niagara IceDogs 4 @ Belleville Bulls 3
C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season Totals: 48 GP, 15-13-28, +4, 31 PIM
With Bulls: 15 GP, 6-4-10, -11, 12 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, E, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Blake Parlett)
Season Totals: 55 GP, 37-24-61, +36, 52 PIM

Unexpected stat of the night: This was Hutchings’ first assist since January 2nd and second since December 18. He had 34 assists last season. Hutchings is a frequent visitor to the scoresheet, so the low assist (lately) total is a bit of a surprise. This was a big road win for the Majors, who sit in second, (well) behind Barrie in the Eastern Conference. Those two are in a class by themselves in the conference.
