Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2
D Mark Barberio, Q: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-13-15, +4, 22 PIM
Moncton put themselves in a 3-0 hole and could never recover. Former Lightning prospect Michael Ward finished his season with Cape Breton last season after a trade from Lewiston. He was not offered a contract by Tampa Bay, but signed with Vancouver. The Canucks re-assigned him to Cape Breton, where as a co-captain he has 15 assists (0 goals) in 17 games so far this year. He had 17 points in 30 games with the Eagles after the trade last year; 17 in 35 with Lewiston.
Belleville Bulls 0 @ Brampton Battalion 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 21 GP, 4-4-8, E, 22 PIM
With Bulls: 8 GP, 2-3-5, +2, 2 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM
DeCoste earned his first two penalty minutes as a Bull.
Erie Otters 2 @ Owen Sound Attack 3
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
Season Totals: 6 GP, 3-2-1-0, 3.00 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%
Erie is on a 0-2-2-0 streak. Janus got the night off.
Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 11
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 25 GP, 6-8-14, +11, 8 PIM
This is confusing. Panik was coming off a two goal game, his team scored 11, had six even strength goals, and somehow Panik goes without a point and has a team-worst minus-two rating.
Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Ottawa 67â€™s 6
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: Did not play.
Season Totals: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +7, 6 PIM
Ottawa is on a 5-0-1 streak and are now at .500 on the year.
London Knights 4 @ Oshawa Generals 1
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 18 GP, 7-9-2-0, 3.45 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO
Zador got the night off.
Panik breaks out of his slump ... overtime games galore ... tough night for goalies.
Barberio plays with Q All-Stars vs. Russia ... four others in action, including Sointu vs. DeCoste.
Zador vs. Janus ... Ashton extends streak ... Sointu his first multi-point game ... and more.
Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Rimouski Oceanic 5 (SO)
D Mark Barberio, MCT:0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 19 GP, 2-12-14, +5, 22 PIM
Moncton played their first game since October 29 thanks to a flu-cancelled game against Montreal and a long layoff. The Wildcats lost the shootout 2-1 after leading 1-0 at the completion of round 1.
Calgary Hitmen 2 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
RW Carter Ashton, LET: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM (roughing, tripping)
Season Totals: 19 GP, 10-12-22, -5, 38 PIM
Ashton extended his point streak to seven games with his 10th goal of the season as the Hurricanes beat first place Calgary 3-2. Lethbridge was 0-7 on the power play compared to Calgaryâ€™s 2-5. The Hurricanes, who won their third game in a row, climbed out of the cellar with the win and now stand at 8-11-2-0 on the year, 14 points behind Calgary in the Central Division.
