Prep Update: 12/5

Deerfield Academy 9 @ Northfield Mount Herman 0
C Alex Killorn, DFA: 1-2-3 (unofficial)

Killorn's goal came when he "stripped the puck off a NMH defender and went wide, warding off defenders and eventually found the far corner of the net." He unofficially has 5 goals and 3 assists in 2 games this year. Deerfield has outscored its opponents 15-0 so far.

Tabor Academy 2 @ Noble and Greenough School 2 (OT)
C/W Matt Marshall, Nobles: No stats listed.

NHL Game Night 12/6: Hurricanes at Lightning

And the Southeast Division re-tightens.

CAR-1
TB-2

Johan Holmqvist was outstanding stopping 23 of 24 shots for the win.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
Tampa Bay 16:00, Vincent Lecavalier 19 (power play) (Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis)

Third Period
Tampa Bay 12:45, Martin St. Louis 10 (power play) (Vincent Lecavalier, Filip Kuba)
Carolina 19:46, Cory Stillman 16 (David Tanabe, Eric Staal)

The Lightning pull back to within 5 points of first place in the division and they hold a game in hand on the Canes. My expectation going into this season was that the Lightning and Canes would be the division's playoff representatives and probably battle for the division crown to the bitter end of the regular season. I've seen nothing to dissuade me from that notion. Carolina has had opportunities to bury the Lightning in the standings, but head to head Tampa dominates.

Mathuey Darche was -1 in 17:51 with 5 hits and 2 blocked shots.

Mike Lundin was even in 14:12 with 2 shots on goal.

G Riku Helenius, SEA: OTL, 34 saves on 37 shots, *First Star*

Helenius was “stellar” for Seattle, only allowing one even-strength goal. The overtime winner was a shot through a screen that apparently bounced in off a shin, Helenius told the Seattle Times. It was scored on the power play.

Prince George Cougars 3 @ Chilliwack Bruins 6
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: Did not play

Tyrell is recovering from a minor knee injury and may be ready for this weekend's games.

Crowley Will Not Be Suspended

According to the Vancouver Province, Everett Silvertips defenseman Dane Crowley will not be suspended for his hit on Florida Panthers 2007 second rounder and Vancouver Giants forward Michal Repik. Apparently it was ruled Repik suffered his injury (now diagnosed as a severe concussion) when he hit the ice and not from Crowley's hit. Repik spent two nights in the hospital. Crowley received a 5-minute major and game misconduct for the hit, but days later the league actually revoked both penalties and said the hit was not illegal.
