C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (interference), 3 SOG, 1 Hits
Season Totals: 63 GP, 44-36-80, +39, 63 PIM

The CHL’s top ranked team lost for the second time this week, dropping a 6-2 decision to the upcoming Memorial Cup hosts. Gauthier’s five-game point streak was snapped in the process. He had 11 points over those five games. Anton Zlobin had two goals and three assists for the Cataractes. Zlobin is projected to be a mid-round pick in the 2012 draft after being passed over last year. He has 39 goals and 74 points in 64 games. He is also plus-43. He had 45 points in 59 games in his initial draft year.

Quebec Remparts 0 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5

D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play.
Season Totals: 49 GP, 6-25-31, -11, 49 PIM

Even without one of their defensive leaders in Adam Janosik, Gatineau upset the visiting Remparts from Quebec City. Janosik reportedly returned to his native Slovakia to take school tests. He is expected back Thursday.

Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-17-18, +8, 24 PIM

Tri-City Storm 0 @ Omaha Lancers 4

G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 30 saves on 33 shots
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 26 GP, 12-14-1, 3.13 GAA, .909 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

Wilcox carried a shutout into the third period before conference-leading Omaha scored early in the final frame to take a 1-0 lead. They scored three more times, including an empty net goal, before the game ended. The Storm fell out of the last playoff spot and are now one point behind Sioux City, who beat Waterloo 7-2 and has a game in hand on Tri-City.

Saint John Sea Dogs 3 @ Chicoutimi Sagueneens 4 (SO)

C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 3 Hits
Season Totals: 62 GP, 44-35-79, +41, 61 PIM

Twice Gauthier tied the game for Saint John, but at the end of the shootout with the game on the line Gauthier couldn’t come through one final time. Kings second rounder Christopher Gibson stopped two of three shooters in the skills competition for the victory. With his two goals Friday, Gauthier moved into second place on his own in the Q goal scoring race. He’s still six behind Acadie-Bathurst’s Zach O’Brien (undrafted).

Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 6 (OT)

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-0-1, +2, 2 PIM (holding), 0 hits
Season Totals: 49 GP, 6-25-31, -11, 49 PIM

Janosik was back in the lineup after missing last weekend with an illness and scored his sixth of the year for Gatineau to open the game’s scoring. He took a holding penalty in overtime, however, and the Foreurs capitalized on it with the game winning goal.

Baie-Comeau Drakkar 2 @ Victoriaville Tigres 5

D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (high sticking), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 59 GP, 2-8-10, -17, 67 PIM

Canucks third rounder David Honzik stopped all but two shots for the Tigres.

London Knights 5 @ Guelph Storm 1

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
Season Totals: 59 GP, 22-48-70, +19, 50 PIM

Namestnikov broke a three-game scoreless streak with a goal and an assist Friday as London completed a two-game home-and-home sweep of Guelph. With two points he reached 70 for the season, which establishes a new career high for the Lightning first round draft pick. He also set a career high for penalty minutes in a season with two more added to his totals.

Guelph Storm 1 @ London Knights 4

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 58 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 48 PIM

With a win over Guelph on Thursday the London Knights clinched the Midwest Division title. Namestnikov was scoreless for the third game in a row and seventh time in his last nine games. Of course, he has a five point game squeezed in that time span. Of concern is Namesntikov has registered a minus rating in five of those nine games, as opposed to only two games in which he’s finished on the plus side of even.

Tri-City Storm 4 @ Omaha Lancers 3

G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 25 saves on 28 shots, *First Star*
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 25 GP, 12-13-1, 3.13 GAA, .909 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

He’s doing it again. After two bad losses to start the weekend, Wilcox was back in net for the third straight day and earned another first star in a Storm win. That gives him, unofficially, six in the last few weeks. With Sioux City idol on Sunday, Tri-City has taken over the final playoff spot in the USHL’s Western Conference. USHL observers say they have Wilcox to thank for that.

Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 5 (Saturday)

C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 1 Hits, *First Star*
Season Totals: 61 GP, 42-35-77, +41, 61 PIM

Sorry folks, somehow I missed this late Saturday night, and it’s a shame because new Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier was first star for the Sea Dogs in their 5-2 win over the Titan. In addition to scoring a couple of points, Gauthier was 8/13 on faceoffs. His 42 goals this year are tied for second, eight behind leader Zack O’Brien of the Titan. O’Brien (undrafted) did not score against the Sea Dogs on Saturday. Gauthier is tied for 10th in the league in total points and is sixth in plus/minus behind five teammates.

Victoriaville Tigres 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 2

D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (interference), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 57 GP, 2-8-10, -16, 59 PIM
With Victoriaville: 24 GP, 2-3-5, -3, 28 PIM
With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM
D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play (illness)
Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

A day after putting up 10 goals on Moncton, Victoriaville only scored three in Gatineau on Sunday, but it was enough to win. Janosik continues to miss time with an illness. The Olympiques went 2-1 in his absence this weekend.

OHL

London Knights 1 @ Oshawa Generals 4

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (slashing)
Season Totals: 57 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 48 PIM
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-16-17, +6, 24 PIM
With Oshawa: 17 GP, 1-5-6, +3, 4 PIM
With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

For the second night in a row London was stymied by a hot goaltender, this time it was Kevin Bailie (undrafted) of Oshawa. Saturday night it was Petr Mrazek of Ottawa. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch outpointed fellow Bolt prospect Vladislav Namestnikov in the game, 2-0. Schemitsch’s two assists were a season high and the most points he’s registered in a game since October 30, 2010, when he had three helpers. Namestnikov has fallen from among the league leaders in points to 22nd overall. Plymouth, who beat Sarnia on Sunday, closed to within two points of the Knights atop the Western Conference.

Cedar Rapids Roughriders 4 @ Tri-City Storm 1

G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 18 saves on 22 shots
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 24 GP, 11-13-1, 3.14 GAA, .910 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

Wilcox and the Storm have spent the last two months crawling up the standings to make a run at the playoffs, but two bad losses this weekend could be a sign the surge could be ending. Wilcox had a pedestrian night in net after earning four or five first stars in the past few weeks. Fortunately for the Storm Sioux City continues to lose so Tri-City is still within a point of the final spot.

QMJHL

Gatineau Olympiques 8 @ Drummondville Voltigeurs 2

D Adam Janosik, GAT: Did not play (illness)
Season Totals: 48 GP, 5-25-30, -13, 47 PIM

Janosik was not in the lineup for the second straight night due to a virus that’s spreading through the Gatineau locker room. Rookie Kyle Morrison (undrafted) had a hat trick for Gatineau.

Moncton Wildcats 0 @ Victoriaville Tigres 10

D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM (slashing), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 56 GP, 2-8-10, -15, 57 PIM
With Victoriaville: 23 GP, 2-3-5, -2, 26 PIM
With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM

Victoriaville was not a kind host to Moncton on Saturday, beating them 10-0. Milan got into the action with an assist against his former team. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes was first star for Victoriaville with two goals and four points.

OHL

Ottawa 67’s 2 @ London Knights 1

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 56 GP, 21-47-68, +18, 46 PIM

Czech Republic World Juniors hero Petr Mrazek (Red Wings) stole the show in London on Saturday by stopping 39 of 40 shots to give Ottawa the win. Namestnikov has one point in his last four games.

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Barrie Colts 1

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

The Gens bounced back from a shellacking by London on Friday night to get a big road win against the high-powered Colts. Oshawa is three points up on Peterborough for the final playoff spot in the East with a game in hand on the Petes.
