ECHL/USHL Game Night 12/29


  • Cunti continues hot start

Helenius Shuts Out Kazakhstan

Riku Helenius improved to 2-0-0 in this year's U20 World Junior Championships Saturday as Finland shut out Kazakhstan 5-0. Helenius made 15 saves in the win. He was named the best player in the match for the Finns.

Finland now sits in 3rd place on their group's table with a matchup against Team USA coming up on Monday to complete round robin play. Team USA clinched the Group B today with a win over Russia.

To this point Helenius is 2-0-0 with 1 shutout, a 1.44 GAA, and a .930 save percentage.

Great Lakes Invitational

#2 Michigan 6 vs. Providence 0

D Mich. Kevin Quick 0-0-0, 1 SOG, +1

Michigan (17-2-0) was outshot 50-21, yes I said outshot, and came away with a win. Wolverines goalie Billy Sauer, a Colorado prospect, earned the shutout. Michigan faces Michigan Tech(7-8-2) in the final on Saturday night. The Huskies upset #5 Michigan State 4-1.

Lascek Recalled to Norfolk

The Norfolk Admirals have announced that they have recalled winger Stanislav Lascek from Mississippi of the ECHL. The right winger missed the first month plus of the season nursing a groin injury and has 4 goals and 12 points in 13 games since returning to the lineup for the Sea Wolves.

NHL Game Day 12/29: Flyers at Lightning

You know it's bad when the Lightning can't muster a win against the Flyers.


Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 22 shots in the game including one on a first period penalty shot. I thought the fourth goal was on Ramo (his first bad goal since being recalled), otherwise he played reasonably well.

First Period
Philadelphia 7:13, Joffrey Lupul 16 (penalty shot)
Tampa Bay 11:44, Vincent Lecavalier 26 (power play) (Martin St. Louis, Brad Richards)

Second Period
Philadelphia 19:04, Mike Knuble 11 (power play) (Jeff Carter, Joffrey Lupul)

Third Period
Philadelphia 0:31, Scott Hartnell 6 (power play) (Braydon Coburn, Joffrey Lupul)
Philadelphia 4:17, Kimmo Timonen 5 (Daniel Briere, R.J. Umberger)
Tampa Bay 8:08, Vaclav Prospal 17 (Doug Janik, Martin St. Louis)
