Ouch. This was a big game for Wilcox, who was coming off a 34-save shutout and facing the team that traded him just a few weeks ago. Wilcox gave up two in the first period, then two quick ones early in the third to take the loss. He was pulled in favor of backup Phoenix Copley.

OHL

Sarnia Sting 3 @ London Knights 7

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: Did not play (injured)
Season Totals: 33 GP, 17-23-40, +10, 28 PIM

After Namestnikov was a surprise cut by Team Russia at the World Junior tournament, rumors started swirling he was injured when trying to make the team though nothing had been announced. Friday was the second straight game for London that Namestnikov has missed due to a “lower body injury,” giving those rumors some credibility. Speaking of credibility, it’s a lot easier to handle Namestnikov – a first round pick of the Lightning in 2011 – not making the team due to an injury than not being good enough. On Friday, Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a hat trick for the Knights. He also added an assist. Griffith (pictured) now has 29 goals and 50 points in 35 games.

Owen Sound Attack 1 @ Kitchener Rangers 4

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 33 GP, 17-23-40, +10, 28 PIM

Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored an empty net goal for his 26th goal of the season as London topped division rival Guelph, 3-1. The undrafted Griffith has 46 points in 33 games to go with a plus-17 rating. He has a 12 game point streak going and has had at least a point in 24 of his last 26 games.
