NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-23-15 Lightning at Predators

Overmatched Lightning B squad falls on the road.


Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 21 shots for the loss before giving way to Allen York at mid-game. York allowed 1 goal on 9 shots the rest of the way.

First Period
7:47 NSH Neal (1), (Josi, Fiala)
8:40 NSH Weber (1), (Ribeiro, Wilson)(PP)
16:14 NSH Smith (1), (Josi, Bartley)

Second Period
4:31 NSH Smith (2), (Wilson, Ribeiro)
6:39 TB Namestnikov (1), (Blunden, Peca)(PP)
10:14 TB Brown (1), (Tambellini)

Third Period
17:47 NSH Sissons (1), (Arvidsson, Moses)(PP)

I don't want to call this a throw away game, but this was essentially sticking the Palat/Johnson/Kucherov line on a depleted Syracuse Crunch roster and putting them up against darned near all of the Nashville Predators opening night roster. The Preds had about a 4 to 1 experience advantage in the lineup tonight, and it showed in the final score. The good news is the Lightning managed to staunch the bleeding pretty well after it got to 4-0 and got some production from lower line guys like Namestnikov and Brown (good for Tampa Bay) and Blunden, Peca, and Tambellini (good for Syracuse). The only thing that gives me any real pause is Andrej Sustr getting a -3 hung on him, which continues the bleeding from his playoff run of last year.

Tanner Richard had 4 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 2 hits in 14:56. He was also 60% on draws.

Jonathan Marchessault was -1 with 3 shots and was 50% on draws in 15:07.

Philippe Paradis was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 10:12.

Luke Witkowski stayed clean in 19:48 of ice time.

Jake Dotchin fought a Predator and had 3 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 18:33.

Matthew Peca had a helper and was -1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 15:02. He only took 2 draws and was 0-for-2.

Dominik Masin was -2 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 17:45. I'd imagine he's ticketed for Peterborough come tomorrow, but we'll see.

Daniel Walcott had 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 18:23. He's becoming a favorite on the website.

Nikita Nesterov had 2 penalty minutes and 5 shots in 21:05. You never have to ask Nesterov to put pucks on net. He starts shooting from the parking lot.

Box score and extended statistics from

Juniors Game Night: 1-31-15

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Sherbrooke Phoenix 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 1

C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM, 2 SOG, 12/21 FO, 0 Hits
With Sherbrooke: 19 GP, 13-15-28, -2, 20 PIM
With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 14-28-42, -8, 34 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy was held scoreless but Sherbrooke was able to eke out a road win against the club at the bottom of the West Division thanks to netminder Evan Fitzpatrick, who stopped 34 of 35 shots in the match.

Victoriaville Tigres 4 @ Quebec Remparts 9

W Adam Erne, QUE: 0-2-2, +1, 7 PIM, 4 SOG, 3/5 FO, 0 Hit
Season totals: 44 GP, 28-35-63, +16, 74 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Quebec followed up Friday night's win with a solid thumping of visiting Victoriaville. Erne was in on the action with a couple helpers wrapped around a bout with defenseman Phil Pietroniro.

Ontario Hockey League

North Bay Battalion 3 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4 (SO)

D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 1-0-1, +3, 7 PIM
With SSM: 9 GP, 3-12-15, +6, 17 PIM
With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 13-40-53, +7, 81 PIM
2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

DeAngelo's point streak hit eight games with a first period marker that put the powerhouse that his club is up by three and he engaged in a round of fisticuffs that might very well have made some of the denizens of his hometown proud. It bears repeating that the Soo still hasn’t lost since DeAngelo (and others) were acquired at the OHL trade deadline.

Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 3 (SO)

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 15-17-32, -7, 83 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

Windsor erased two deficits to push the game on into extra time only to fall in the skills competition. Scoreless in Windsor's last game, DiGiacinto provided a secondary dish that made for his fourth point in his last four games.

Ottawa 67's 4 @ Peterborough Petes 2

D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
Season totals: 37 GP, 7-13-20, -19, 57 PIM
2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

Masin's seven-game point streak and Peterborough's brief run came to a grinding halt against the 67's.

Western Hockey League

Brandon Wheat Kings 6 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 0

C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, -1, 5 PIM
Season totals: 39 GP, 21-33-54, +9, 32 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point was reduced to denting the score sheet being credited with a fight -- his second of the season -- and that about tells you all you need to know for how things were going for Moose Jaw on the ice Saturday night.

Edmonton Oil Kings 0 @ Calgary Hitmen 5

D Ben Thomas, CAL: Did not play
Season totals: 39 GP, 5-16-21, +6, 18 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Thomas sat this one out but Calgary rolled anyway en route its sixth straight victory. In the past three games, the Hitmen have put up an eye-popping 23 goals while allowing just a single goal against.

IIHF U20 WJC: Day Six

Group A
Canada 5 vs. USA 3
Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Tournament totals: 4 GP, 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM

Brayden Point, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Tournament totals: 4 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM

Anthony DeAngelo scored Team USA's first goal on the PP, but had a key turnover late in the game that led to an EN goal that turned out to be Canada's winner in their 5-3 victory in the last game of the round robin. Brayden Point watched the proceedings from the pine. Coyotes first rounder Max Domi led the way for Canada with 2 goals. Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin, obviously the revelation of the tournament, had 2 goals in defeat for the Americans.

Group B
Russia 1 vs. Czech Republic 4
Dominik Masin, Czech Republic, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Tournament totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM

Dominik Masin had a helper on Czech Republic's early Third Period insurance goal in their 4-1 spanking of Russia. Undrafted Patrik Zdrahal had the goal and finished the contest with 2 goals to lead the Czechs. Blues 2nd rounder Ivan Barbashev had Russia's lone goal in defeat.

IIHF U20 WJC: Day Four

Group A
USA 3 vs. Slovakia 0
Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin again led the way for Team USA with 1 goal and 1 assist in their 3-0 blanking of Slovakia. Canucks second rounder Thatcher Demko stopped all 17 shots he faced for USA's second consecutive shutout. Aside: don't read too much into Anthony DeAngelo's offensive production in the tournament. He's not playing the same role in the WJC's he does in the OHL, playing more of a defensive role and only seeing time on USA's second PP unit.

Finland 1 vs. Canada 4
Brayden Point, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM

Group B
Czech Republic 4 vs. Denmark 3 (OT)
Dominik Masin, Czech Republic, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM

It took an overtime marker by Bruins first rounder David Pastrnak for the Czech Republic to finally dispose of pesky Denmark 4-3. A pair of helpers by Jets first rounder Nikolaj Ehlers allowed the Danes to extend the game past regulation despite a steep shot disparity that reached 48 to 14 for the Czechs by the game's end. Note that Dominik Masin has been playing the net front role on the Czech power play in the tournament, setting screens and looking for deflections.

IIHF U20 WJC: Day Two

Group A
Germany 0 vs. Canada 4
Brayden Point, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM

Tournament totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

Anthony DeAngelo had a secondary assist on Alex Tuch's power play goal in USA's 2-1 shootout win over defending champion Finland. DeAngelo played both right and left-side defense and saw time on USA's second PP and PK units in the contest. Chase de Leo scored the shootout winner for the Americans.
