Cedric Paquette and the Armada are moving on, defeating the Foreurs, 2-1, on Wednesday night to advance to the third round of the playoffs.

Blainville-Boisbriand will play Baie-Comeau next round. The Drakkar swept Victoriaville, 4-0. Halifax awaits the Remparts-Huskies winner.

Prospect of the Week: April 10, 2013

We continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Prospect of the Week for April 10 is … Cedric Paquette, C, Blainville-Boisbriand (QMJHL – Canada).

Cedric Paquette was made for the playoffs.

Paquette is at his best when the checking gets tight and grit matters most. The Blainville-Boisbriand center has excelled this post-season, posting a team-leading seven goals and five assists in eight games.

Cedric Paquette (pictured) was an assist shy of a Gordie Howe Hat Trick, scoring once and fighting Vincent Dunn. Paquette has seven goals in eight playoff games. On the other side, Artem Sergeev managed to stay even despite his Foreurs giving up three even strength goals. He was called for hooking, roughing, and unsportsmanlike conduct minors. The Armada can close out the series on Wednesday. Sergeev is already signed by the Lightning, so it’s possible he can join AHL Syracuse or ECHL Florida for the playoffs. (Note: There may be a rule against him joining Florida due to pre-determined rosters)

NHL Game Night: 4-9-13 Senators at Lightning

Bishop smacks down his ex-team.

OTT-2
TB-3

Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory against his old mates. Cory Conacher? 1 shot on goal in 15:22. Decision: Steve Yzerman. Flawless victory.

First Period
14:29 OTT Alfredsson (9), (Turris, Phillips)

Second Period
02:35 TB Labrie (1), (Thompson, Crombeen)
04:28 TB Lecavalier (9), (Purcell, St. Louis)(PP)

Third Period
00:21 OTT Latendresse (6), (Turris, Wiercioch)
14:56 TB Stamkos (26), (Lecavalier, St. Louis)(PP)

Vincent Lecavalier, Sami Salo, and The Secret Weapon, Pierre-Cedric Labrie were the game's three stars. Lecavalier is now over a point a game since coming back from the broken foot. It's a shame we'll never know what kind of season he could've had if he hadn't tried to play on a bad wheel for a month.

Old man Alfredsson retiring won't cost me any tears. The man's been cutting our hearts out for years.

Mark Barberio was -1 with 1 shot in 14:12 in his NHL debut. 4 giveaways. Oof.

Alex Killorn had 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 22:13.

Tyler Johnson was -1 with 1 shot and was 75% on draws in 11:49.

Richard Panik was -1 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 9:37.

Radko Gudas was +1 with 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 15:05.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie scored his first NHL goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 6 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 8:30. Check the man's shooting percentage. Sniper. (Tongue firmly in cheek.)
