Ontario Hockey League

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Erie Otters 1

D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 1-3-4, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
With SSM: 11 GP, 4-17-21, +9, 21 PIM

Season totals: 40 GP, 14-45-59, +10, 85 PIM
2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

DeAngelo extended his point streak to 10 games with a goal and three assists. He earned first star in the Soo’s statement win over Connor McDavid and Erie. The two teams are projected to meet in the Western Conference Finals in a few months. The Greyhounds are now five points ahead of Erie for the top seed in the West. McDavid had an assist in Friday’s game.

Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Oshawa Generals 5

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 45 GP, 15-18-33, -7, 85 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

The Gens were too much for Windsor and extended their lead in the Eastern Conference to 18 points over the next best team, Barrie.

Peterborough Petes 5 @ Ottawa 67’s 2

D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM
Season totals: 39 GP, 7-16-23, -16, 64 PIM
2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

Masin has seven points in his last seven games. He’s really come on offensively in the second half of the season, as is typical for an import player in his first year.

Western Hockey League

Spokane Chiefs 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 2

C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 41 GP, 21-35-56, +8, 32 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point created a turnover in front of the Spokane net that led to the Warriors’ second goal, but he was not credited with an assist. Moose Jaw put six forwards on the ice after pulling their goalie late in the game, but they couldn’t find the tying goal. They came close a few times, including once where Point was in front but couldn’t bat an airborne puck into the net. Moose Jaw retired Ryan Smyth’s jersey before the game. Smyth’s son was reportedly mostly interested in meeting Point because of his performance at the World Junior tournament.

Crunch Fall to Sound Tigers in OT


By Jeremy Houghtaling

With a second point on the table in overtime, the Syracuse Crunch came up just short.

The Crunch stopped the best power play in league on an extended 5-on-3 advantage in the second period, answered less than a minute after the Sound Tigers scored in the third, and Kristers Gudelvskis finished with 30 saves, but Bridgeport's Kael Mouillierat was able to score on a breakaway in the extra session to top Syracuse, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

With points in each of the last six games, the Crunch has tied the Oklahoma City Barons for the most points in the AHL.

"I think it's tough when you lose any game, especially like that," said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. "I think we had a good chance to win the game. We came back after they scored. We just have to keep bearing down and hopefully we'll keep getting points as we go along."

Juniors Game Night: 2-5-15

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Sherbrooke Phoenix 1 @ Halifax Mooseheads 4

C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-1-1, -2, 4 PIM, 7 SOG, 7/17 FO, 1 Hit
With Sherbrooke: 20 GP, 13-16-29, -4, 24 PIM
With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
Season totals: 39 GP, 14-29-43, -9, 38 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy had an assist in the Phoenix’s 4-1 loss in Halifax. Jonathan Drouin’s former team came into the game 10 points behind Sherbrooke on the league table.

Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Quebec Remparts 7

W Adam Erne, QUE: 2-0-2, E, 2 PIM, 5 SOG, 3/8 FO, 6 Hits, *Third Star*
Season totals: 45 GP, 30-35-65, +16, 76 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne set a new career high for goals in a season, hitting 30 for the year. He was on pace last year before injuries and WJC time cut his games. He’s also already passed his previous PIM career high. It looks as though Erne has been moved back to wing. He had been playing center for a few weeks, which he played last year. He projects as a winger at the professional level.

Ontario Hockey League

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Niagara IceDogs 8

D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 0-2-2, +1, 4 PIM
With SSM: 10 GP, 3-14-17, +7, 21 PIM
With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM
Season totals: 39 GP, 13-42-55, +8, 85 PIM
2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

DeAngelo extended his point streak to nine games with two assists Thursday night. Despite scoring six goals in the game, the Soo fell to the IceDogs, snapping their 10-game win streak. This was DeAngelo’s first loss as a member of the Greyhounds.

Owen Sound Attack 7 @ Windsor Spitfires 5

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 44 GP, 15-18-33, -6, 85 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

Windsor is three points out of the last playoff spot in the West, which could mean DiGiacinto could be available for AHL Syracuse if needed.

Guelph Storm 9 @ Peterborough Petes 4

D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-1-1, +3, 7 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 7-14-21, -16, 64 PIM
2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

Masin has five points in his last six games. He fought Tyler Bertuzzi (Red Wings) on Thursday night. It was Masin’s fourth fight of the season. Bertuzzi, nephew of Todd Bertuzzi, received an instigator and game misconduct.

NHL Game Night: 2-5-15 Lightning at Stars

Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

TB-5
DAL-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy shined, allowing 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory. The Lightning would've had zero chance of winning tonight without Vasilevskiy.

First Period
3:11 TB Stamkos (28), (Callahan, Barberio)
6:42 TB Hedman (6), (Stamkos)

Second Period
15:21 DAL Klingberg (10), (Seguin, Goligoski)
15:36 DAL Goligoski (2), (Fiddler, Horcoff)

Third Period
12:27 TB Johnson (18), (Kucherov, Killorn)(PP)
13:41 DAL Daley (13), (Ja. Benn, Demers)
16:23 TB Johnson (19), (Boyle, Palat)
18:43 TB Kucherov (18), (Palat)(EN)

Tyler Johnson and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and third stars. Brian Boyle was robbed.

This was, in many ways, role reversal from the Lightning's performance in St. Louis. The Lightning were on their heels most of the night, ultimately getting outshot 36-29, and probably should've been run out of the barn if it weren't for the goaltending they got from Vasiy. Then things got really weird when Jason Garrison got hurt, forcing Brian Boyle to take shifts on defense where he made the play of the game on a clean check on Jamie Benn at center ice that eventually led to his point shot that was deflected in by Johnson for the GWG. Yes, Brian Boyle, from the point, on defense (not in the Conservatory with the Candlestick). Honestly, you can't feel too guilty about it because they deserved so much better against the Blues. So, things evened out on this little mini trip.

Unfortunately, if Garrison's injury is of any real severity, it puts the Lightning in a very tough spot with the California trip looming. Yzerman's basically got a week to bring someone in or he'll have to do something he probably doesn't want to do like raid the already thin cupboard in Syracuse. Paging Slater Koekkoek?

Luke Witkowski was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 13:47. It was a hard luck minus with Daley's shot off the rush hitting Witkowski's leg and deflecting past Vasiy.
