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).

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.

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.
