Memorial Cup Round Robin Play

Playoff Totals: 21 GP, 5-17-22, +10, 12 PIM
Season Totals: 65 GP, 17-43-60, +39, 72 PIM

Calgary came back from 3-0 and 4-2 deficits to steal a win in the Memorial Cup opener for both teams. The game winner came when a shot around the boards hit a partition and bounced to Moncton goalie Nicola Riopel, who didn’t see Hitmen forward Tyler Shattock coming around the net. Shattock banged in the loose puck. Barberio played a strong game, logging a large amount of ice time and created a few chances in the offensive zone. Moncton next plays tournament host Brandon Sunday afternoon on NHL Network.

Draft Watch
Moncton defenseman Brandon Gormley, a possibility for the Lightning at No.6 in the summer’s draft, had an assist. The Sportsnet announcers couldn't stop talking about his poise, and at one time said he'd play 10+ years in the NHL. Gormley Playoff Totals: 21 GP, 2-15-17, +14, 4 PIM.

Moncton won their second President’s Cup (2006) by defeating top-seed and provincial rival St. John 7-4 in Game 6 to win the series 4-2. The Wildcats now advance to the 2010 Memorial Cup in Brandon, Manitoba, where they will open against WHL champion Calgary on Saturday. Windsor (OHL) and Brandon (host) will also be participating. Barberio was scoreless in Game 6 despite the Wildcats’ seven goals, but still finished as the playoff leading scorer among defensemen by three points. Moncton’s Gabriel Bourque (Predators 5/09) won playoff MVP, thanks in part to his eight goals in the Finals. Barberio finished the finals with seven assists and a plus-four rating. He is the only current Lightning draftee to be participating in the 2010 Memorial Cup.

Moncton earned their biggest win of the year thus far, knocking off top-seeded St. John on the road to take a 3-2 series lead in the QMJHL Finals. The Wildcats are one win away from a league championship and joining WHL champion Calgary, OHL champion Windsor, and host Brandon at the 2010 Memorial Cup. Barberio’s two assists upped his lead in the playoff scoring race among defensemen to three points over St. John’s Simon Despres (Penguins 1/09). Game 6 is Monday in Moncton.

QMJHL

St. John Sea Dogs 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2 (OT)
QMJHL Finals, Game 4. Best of 7 Series tied 2-2
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Playoff Totals: 19 GP, 5-15-20, +7, 12 PIM
Season Totals: 65 GP, 17-43-60, +39, 72 PIM

Moncton came back from a 2-0 deficit, but the Sea Dogs won in the overtime thriller 3-2 to tie the series at two games apiece. Barberio went scoreless for the first time in three games, and it was a cross-ice pass in the Moncton zone between him and Brandon Gormley that was intercepted and ended up in the back of the Wildcats net for St. John’s second goal – a shorthanded marker they’d like to have back. The pivotal Game 5 will be played in St. John Saturday.

Moncton defenseman Brandon Gormley, a possibility for the Lightning at No.6 in the summer’s draft, was scoreless and minus-2 in Game 4. Gormley Playoff Totals: 19 GP, 2-15-17, +12, 2 PIM.

St. John raced out to 2-0 and 5-1 leads to help them to a big 6-4 in Game 3 of the QMJHL Finals to make it a series again. Moncton had won their team-record last eight playoff road games. Barberio has five assists so far this series. Game 4 is Friday in Moncton.

OHL

Barrie Colts 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 6
OHL Finals, Game 4. Windsor wins Best of 7 Series 4-0
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (tripping, hooking)
Playoff Totals: 13 GP, 2-8-10, +4, 12 PIM
Season Totals: 68 GP, 47-34-81, +44, 58 PIM

Hutchings set up the game’s first goal when he found Luke Pither on the power play, but it wasn’t going to be Barrie’s night as Windsor scored the game’s final four goals and clinched the Robertson Cup with a stunning sweep of top-ranked Barrie. Barring a surprise, this ends the junior career of Hutchings, who is set to get a contract from Tampa Bay this spring and likely be in AHL Norfolk next season. Hutchings had a somewhat forgettable playoffs for his standards, scoring only twice in 13 games and only registering an assist in the finals. He also battled a groin injury that caused him to miss an entire series, however. He did set personal highs for playoff games played with 13, assists (8) and points (10). He had three goals in five playoff games last year.

If this was indeed Hutchings’ last OHL game, he finishes his career with a combined (regular season and playoffs) 116 goals, 114 assists, and 230 points in 256 games.

Draft Watch
Windsor defenseman Cam Fowler, who will likely go at No. 3 or 4 in this summer’s draft, was First Star in Game 4. He had two goals and an assist in the game to increase his playoff totals to 3-11-14. Taylor Hall, who will go No.1 or 2, also had two goals and an assist in Game 4, giving him 17-18-35 in 19 playoff games. He did not win the Wayne Gretzky Trophy as playoff MVP, however, as that went to Adam Henrique (Devils 3/08), who had 20-5-25 to take the honors.
