PJ Atherton!? SPR-6 MAN-3 Jonathan Boutin stopped 36 of 39 shots faced as one of the Falcons' goaltenders finally stepped up and gave a winning performance. PJ Atherton's 10 game tryout for a Lightning contract continues to go extremely well as he had 2 assists and was a team best +3 on the night. Zdenek Blatny and Norm Milley each had 2 goals while Jason Jaspers and Ryan Vesce each had 1 goal and 1 assist. Big Mitch Fritz also had 2 assists in the game. Doug O'Brien, Marek Kvapil and Zbynek Hrdel also had helpers for the Falcons. For O'Brien, it was his 30th point of the season in 68 games. The Monarchs' roster currently includes former Rimouski Oceanic Dany Roussin who was a second round pick of the LA Kings. Hard to believe that Zbynek Hrdel has tripled his former teammates' point production this season, but it's true. Three stars of the game: #1 Jonathan Boutin, #2 Norm Milley, #3 PJ Atherton.

[i]Five Lightning prospects have survived and will be playing in Round 2 of their respective leagueâ€™s playoffs this week. Hereâ€™s a look at whatâ€™s in store for each.[/i] In the "[b]Q[/b]," Stanislav Lascek and West Division second seed Chicoutimi Sagueneens, rested after sweeping Baie-Comeau in the opening round, will take on the Gatineau Olympiques. No.4 Gatineau defeated No.5 Drummondville 4-3 last night in Game 7 of their opening round series. Their reward is they get to face a team that can seemingly score with their visors blacked out. The series begins Friday night in Chicoutimi.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned defenseman Doug O'Brien to the Springfield Falcons. The move comes following O'Brien being a healthy scratch in the Lightning's last game, vs. the Florida Panthers. The transaction also means Timo Helbling has passed O'Brien on the organizational depth chart as Helbling will remain in Tampa until Pavel Kubina is healthy. Both O'Brien and Helbling will likely be on Tampa's playoff roster should the Lightning hold on to their spot in the standings. O'Brien averaged 7 minutes and 43 seconds of ice time for the Bolts, most of which was recorded when both Dan Boyle, who returned last night, and Kubina were out of the lineup. He registered two shots on goal and an even rating.
