CHL Game Night: 2/3

So much for Kevin Beech’s hot streak. Beech made 35 saves in Saginaw tonight, but unfortunately also let in 9 goals. The Spirit had 44 shots on Erie in the 9-0 win. That's 19 goals against for Erie in the last two games.

Chris Lawrence and Mississauga returned to their winning ways, defeating Sarnia at home 8-6. Lawrence extended his point streak to 8 games with a goal. He also had a plus-1 rating. Mississauga allowed 4 third period goals to turn a blowout into a close game before adding an empty netter.

Owen Sound scored 5 goals tonight, but Marek Bartanus did not figure in any of them. Despite scoring 5, the Attack lost in Belleville 8-5. Bartanus was minus-1 with 2 PIM. His streaks now stand at 13 games (scoreless) and 25 games (even or minus rating).

In the WHL, Prince George won their fourth straight, 6-5 over Kamloops in overtime. Vladimir Mihalik had an assist, an even rating, and 2 PIM. Mihalik was on the ice for the overtime winner by Sharks first rounder Devin Setoguchi - acquired by the Cougars earlier this year.

Dane Crowley and Everett were at home against Chilliwack and beat the Bruins 5-2. Crowley was scoreless and even.

NHL Game Night 2/3: Rangers at Lightning

Think Atlanta is starting to hear footsteps?

NYR-2
TB-3

Johan Holmqvist stopped 24 of 26 shots faced in the win and has won 8 of his last 9 starts. King Holmer officially en fuego. Dan Boyle and Martin St. Louis each had a pair of assists on the night with the Lightning goals belonging to Paul Ranger, Brad Richards and Vincent Lecavalier (Lecavalier and Richards' goals being of the blistering/unstoppable power play variety). Eric Perrin and Ryan Craig added individual helpers.

The Lightning are cooler than the other side of the pillow in one goal games right now. It took a while for this team to find its confidence, but right now they've got swagger. And, don't look now, but by virtue of Atlanta's 5-2 loss to Philly the Lightning have now moved within six points of the division lead with a game still in hand. Furthermore, the Lightning have now tied the Thrashers with 29 wins and, looking at the schedule, the Lightning get the worst team in the Western Conference Tuesday night (Los Angeles) and the Thrashers get to play the best in the East (Buffalo). This thing could EASILY be down to 4 points with a game in hand if the Lightning stay focused and take care of business against the Kings. If I'm Thrashers GM Don Waddell, I'm having Doctor Feel Good call in a 'scrip for Valium right about now.

This is fun.

Kevin Quick Update

I'm working with the Salisbury School athletic department to get quicker recaps on their games, so hopefully I can keep track of Kevin a little faster and easier.

In 18 games this season Kevin has recorded 6 assists, has a +12 rating and 6 PIM.
His Crimson Knights (13-3-2, 5-3-1 Founders League) are unbeaten in their last seven games and sit 3rd in the Founders League standings.

Their next game is Feb. 7 against Taft School a team they drew to a 0-0 tie back on Jan. 8.
