Schemitsch has 4 points in his last 2 games. Owen Sound peppered Barrie goaltender Peter DiSalvo (undrafted) with 51 shots. He stopped 49. DiSalvo is 1-10-1 on the year but you wouldn’t know it by his First Star performance Wednesday. DiSalvo was a teammate of Steven Stamkos a few years ago in Sarnia.

NHL Game Night: 11/3/10 Lightning at Ducks

Left a point on the ice.

ANH-3 (OT)

Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the overtime loss.

First Period
12:22 ANH Selanne (6), Perry (8), Visnovsky (8)(PP)

Second Period
02:38 TB Jones (1), Malone (6), Purcell (6)

Third Period
00:21 TB Stamkos (10), St Louis (8), Lecavalier (3)(PP)
15:40 ANH Palmieri (1), Ryan (6), Visnovsky (9)

02:53 ANH Getzlaf (5), Selanne (8), Lydman (3)

Maybe the Lightning didn't deserve to win based on just forty minutes of solid effort. They came out flat as a pancake in the first period, getting outshot 9-2 in the opening frame before carrying the balance of play with a 32-21 advantage the rest of the way. Still, they were in control and almost potted the insurance goal to make it 3-1 just before things went awry.

Mattias Ritola had 2 shots and 1 hit in 13:57.

Dana Tyrell played 11:11.

Blair Jones had a goal and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 hit in 8:56. He was also 63% on draws. I want to believe this time Blair will stick.
