North American Juniors Game Night: 10/20/10

QMJHL

PEI Rocket 2 @ Montreal Juniors 5
D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play.
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, +4, 0 PIM

Landry still isn’t back from injury, but is expected to return to the ice soon.

OHL

Plymouth Whalers 4 @ Owen Sound Attack 5
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 10 GP, 1-5-6, +7, 2 PIM

Owen Sound is ranked No.5 in the latest CHL Top-10.

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 4 @ Regina Pats 3 (SO)
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (slashing)
Season totals: 10 GP, 3-2-5, -7, 21 PIM

Ashton was the third and final shooter for the Pats in the shootout, but he hit the post and couldn’t extend the tie-breaker. Ashton is tied for sixth on the club in scoring, behind two defensemen. His minus-7 rating is tied for third worst on the team. The Regina newspaper reported this week it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when” and “where” Ashton gets traded within the WHL, but Regina needs for him to play to his 1st round capabilities so they can maximize the return for their rebuilding effort. Regina is tied for the fewest points in the league with Kelowna at 2-7-1-1.

Brandon Wheat Kings 3 @ Prince George Cougars 5
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 11 GP, 11-7-18, +3, 4 PIM

Connolly ran his point streak to 11 games and his goal streak to 6 games with his second straight 2-goal game. He’s scored at least twice in 3 of his last 4 games. Reigning WHL and CHL Player of the Week Sena Acolatse, a right-handed, undrafted, overage defenseman, had 2 assists in the game. Acolatse has 13 points in 8 games this season with Prince George since coming over from Saskatoon.

Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 16 GP, 7-5-12, +5, 22 PIM

I guess we can officially say Vasily Koshechkin has lost his starting job for Cherepovets. He sat on the bench as Rostislav Stana stopped 26 shots in Severstal's 4-2 win over Riga. Riga forward Martins Karsums was -1 and had a tripping minor in 13:59 of ice time. Ex-Lightning forward Martin Cibak had a goal in the match for Cherepovets.

KHL Game Day: 10/19/10

Hanty-Mansiysk 4 @ Novokuznetsk 2
Denis Kazionov, Novokuznetsk, 0-0-0, E, 25 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -1, 27 PIM

Denis Kazionov got thrown out of the game for spearing in 7:02 of ice time as Novokuznetsk fell to Yugra 4-2. Kazionov's penalty led to an Igor Skorokhodov power play goal that made the match 3-0 in the second period. Novokuznetsk got the game to 3-2 with a pair of power play goals of their own, but Skorokhodov scored a second goal with ten seconds left in regulation to seal Yugra's win. Skorokhodov currently leads Yugra in scoring after spending much of the past few seasons developing in Russia's lower leagues. He also leads the team in the number of "o's" in his name by two. Sorry Evgeny Khvostov, maybe next season.

Kazan 3 @ Nizhnekamsk 1
Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 7 GP, 1-0-1, -1, 6 PIM

The elder Kazionov brother scored the game opening power play goal and logged 12:42 of ice time in Kazan's 3-1 win over Nizhnekamsk. The goal was Kazionov's first point of the season. Kazan also got goals from ex-NHLer Marcel Hossa and ex-Thrashers draft pick Ilya Nikulin.

Panik Named Honorable Mention for OHL Player of the Week

Yesterday the Ontario Hockey League announced Garrett Wilson (Panthers, 4th - 2009) as its Player of the Week for the week ending October 17. Geoffrey Schemitsch's teammate in Owen Sound had seven goals and added an assist for eight points in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-7.

Lightning prospect Richard Panik of Belleville was named as an honorable mention for the award. Tampa Bay's 2009 second round pick had five goals and two assists for seven points in three games, including his first career hat-trick in a 3-2 win over Saginaw on Saturday.

Panik's 10 goals in 10 games are tied for second in the league, and his 17 points are tied for fourth. Last year Panik had 21 goals and 20 assists in 60 games split between Windsor and Belleville.

NHL Game Night: 10/18/10 Stars at Lightning

Way too much drama at the end, but the Lightning win.

DAL-4
TB-5

Mike Smith allowed 4 goals on 19 shots for the win. Five goals worth of support can make a lot of goaltenders look good.

First Period
15:04 DAL Petersen (1), Robidas (1)(SH)
16:21 TB Downie (2), St Louis (4), Stamkos (3)(PP)
19:46 TB Stamkos (5), Hedman (2), Malone (4)(PP)

Second Period
06:04 DAL Burish (1), Ribeiro (6), Morrow (1)
09:26 TB Bergenheim (1), Stamkos (4), Purcell (3)
18:06 TB Moore (3), Kubina (1), Downie (4)(PP)

Third Period
06:11 TB Moore (4), Purcell (4), V. Hedman (3)(PP)
06:24 DAL Morrow (5), (unassisted)
19:00 DAL Neal (3), Richards (8), Ribeiro (7)

Victor Hedman, Dominic Moore, and Nate Thompson were the game's three stars.

When you outshoot a team 44-19, it's not supposed to be this close. The Lightning had good intensity, but they need to tighten up on the mental lapses.

Dana Tyrell was -1 with 2 shots in 14:25.

Michael Vernace was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 5:45.

A tough night for Zador.

Admirals Re-Assign Janus and Hutchings to ECHL

The Norfolk Admirals have announced the re-assignment of goaltender Jaroslav Janus and forward Alex Hutchings to Florida of the ECHL. The two Lightning prospects join Mitch Fadden in the Everblades lineup.

Janus' re-assignment was inevitable, with Dustin Tokarski and Cedrick Desjardins firmly implanted between the pipes in Norfolk. Hutchings and Fadden heading to the Coast is a mild surprise, however.
