Lightning prospects yet to make a splash statistically... unless you call 9 shots in 2 games by Smolenak a splash. No? I didn't think so, either.
Ex-Lightning prospect Morgan Cey allows 4 goals on 26 shots, although 3 of FLA's goals came on the power play. For the two game series, 6 of the Blade's 10 goals came on the man advantage, and another came short-handed.
Connecticut 3 @ #15 Massachusetts 4
D John Wessbecker UMASS 0-1-1, +1 0 PIM
The Junior picked up his second assist of the year on Will Ortiz's second period goal. Wessbecker was moved to the top defensive pairing. The Minutemen (2-1-1) play Providence (0-4-0) in a home and home next weekend.
Freshman Kevin Quick was a healthy scratch in #6 Michigan's 4-3 win over Northern Michigan, Saturday night. Michigan (3-1-0) host Boston University (0-2-1) next weekend.
Fadden a first star; Tyrell drops the gloves.
Results on the flip.
