CHL Game Night: 1-15-10

QMJHL

Baie-Comeau Drakkar 0 @ Moncton Wildcats 6
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, +4, 4 PIM, 3 SOG
Season Totals: 41 GP, 9-25-34, +24, 40 PIM

Barberio’s goal at the one-minute mark of the opening period turned out to be the game winner and made it three consecutive games in which he’s scored a goal. He has an eight game point streak (third longest active streak in the league) and has scored six of his nine goals in that span. Barberio (pictured) is fifth among QMJHL defensemen in assists, points, and plus/minus. He is ninth in goals.

OHL

Barrie Colts 4 @ Plymouth Whalers 2
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season Totals: 42 GP, 26-23-49, +27, 36 PIM

Another big road win for Barrie. Hutchings hasn’t registered a point in four games, which is his longest scoreless stretch since his 2006-07 rookie year. Since Barrie continues to win, one would think the frustration level isn't too high.

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Sudbury Wolves 4
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 28 GP, 11-14-2-1, 3.60 GAA, .894 sv%, 1 SO

Season Totals: 31 GP, 5-9-14, E, 12 PIM
With Sudbury: 10 GP, 2-2-4, -5, 6 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Zador hasn’t made a start since January 3. He is currently on a five-game losing streak, though the latest loss was in relief. Sointu is still recovering from surgery in Finland. He is expected to re-join the Wolves at the end of the month.

WHL

Edmonton Oil Kings 2 @ Regina Pats 5
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (kneeing)

With Regina: 13 GP, 5-5-10, -3, 23 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Regina won their third in a row. Former Lightning prospect Torrie Jung stopped 41 of 46 shots in the loss and was named Third Star. The overager is 7-20-2-5 on the year with a 3.39 GAA, .895 save percentage, and one shutout.

NCAA Game Night: 1-15-10

Northeastern Huskies 3 @ No.18 Vermont Catamounts 1
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season Totals: 18 GP, 1-1-2, -3, 8 PIM

Vermont (10-7-2) had just moved back into the USCHO Top-20 before dropping a home game to the Huskies. Marshall continues to play a fourth line role for the Catamounts.

AHL Game Night: 1-15-10 Phantoms at Admirals

The Admirals have got to win these close division games if they have any shot of climbing into the playoffs.

ADK-3
NOR-2

Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss. It's the first time in four AHL starts this season that Janus has had a sub-.900 save percentage in a game. He has yet to taste victory as a pro despite his .919 season save percentage.

First Period
NOR Wishart, (5) (Jones, Parrish), 9:23 (PP)
ADK Kolanos, (8) (Matsumoto, Nodl), 13:54 (PP)

KHL Game Day: 1-15-10

Omsk 4 @ Novokuznetsk 2
Karri Ramo, Omsk, DNP
Season totals: 34 GP, 19-14, 3 SO, 2.05 GAA, .913 sv%

Former NHLers Jaromir Jagr and Anton Babchuk each had 1 goal and 2 assists in Omsk's 4-2 win over Novokuznetsk. Freshly minted KHL All-Star starter Karri Ramo got the game off. Omsk sits in 4th place in the KHL's Eastern Conference after the victory.

Ramo Named a KHL All-Star Starter

Karri Ramo has been named the starting goaltender for Team Jagr in the upcoming KHL All-Star Game, the league announced today. Taking a cue from the NHL, last year's KHL All-Star Game was held outdoors in Red Square in Moscow. This year's All-Star contest will take place in Minsk. Ramo currently has a 19-14 record in 34 games, with 2 losses coming after regulation, 3 shutouts, a 2.05 GAA, and a .913 save percentage. He is currently tied for fourth in the league in wins.

In somewhat related news, the KHL handed down a decision to Ramo's club Omsk after their brawl filled contest with Chekhov earlier this month that resulted in the game being suspended and postponed due to nineteen players being ejected. The league has decided to rule the game a forfeit by both clubs and both will receive a loss in the standings. Ramo was one of the few players on either team not to earn an ejection.

CHL Game Night: 1-14-10

OHL

Belleville Bulls 1 @ Peterborough Petes 5
C Richard Panik, BEL: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (roughing, tripping)
Season Totals: 37 GP, 11-10-21, +11, 27 PIM
With Bulls: 4 GP, 2-1-3, -4, 8 PIM
With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 39 GP, 13-8-21, -6, 37 PIM
With Bulls: 26 GP, 11-7-18, -4, 17 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Belleville scored early in the second period to take a 1-0 lead, but that lead quickly evaporated and the Bulls couldn’t get closer in Peterborough.

Barrie Colts 4 @ Windsor Spitfires 2
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 41 GP, 26-23-49, +28, 34 PIM

Barrie won the first match-up between the OHL’s heavyweights, besting the Spits on Windsor ice 4-2. Windsor held leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in the game, but it was decided late on a Barrie shorthanded goal with just over five minutes left in the game. The Colts would add an empty netter.

NHL Game Night: 1-14-10 Panthers at Lightning

Thoroughly disappointing.

FLA-3
TB-2

Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss.

First Period
FLA 5:58, Horton 16 (Weiss, Frolik)
TB 9:40, Halpern 9 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)
TB 12:40, Downie 10 (Malone, Szczechura)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
FLA 8:53, Stillman 7 (Reinprecht, Dvorak)
FLA 12:21, Olesz 11 (unassisted)

The Lightning played 40 minutes of very solid hockey, only to take their foot off the gas a bit and have a couple of mistakes by defensemen find their way into the back of the net to cost them the game in the third. It was very disheartening. This team, for some reason, insists on doing things the hard way this season.

Paul Szczechura had 1 assist, 1 hit, 1 blocked shot, and he was 64% on draws in 14:33.

Box score and extended statistics from NHL.com.

KHL Game Day: 1-14-10

Kazan 1 @ St. Petersbug 2
Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 43 GP, 15-5-20, +5, 12 PIM

Kazionov played 13:55 in the match. St. Petersburg got the support of former Lightning prospect Anton But's 17th goal of the season in the victory.

Dynamo Moscow 4 @ Chelyabinsk 3
Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Season totals: 43 GP, 3-10-13, -5, 28 PIM

Harju played 13:16 in the match and was 38% on draws. His season faceoff percentage has slipped to 55% for the season. Former Red Wing Jiri Hudler had a pair of helpers in the game for Dynamo.

KHK MVD 3 @ Novgorod 6
Martins Karsums, KHK MVD, DNP
Season totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

Karsums was assigned to KHK MVD by the Lightning today, absolving the club of the responsibility for the Latvian born wingers salary. Former NHLer Pavel Brendl scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season today in Torpedo's win over KHK MVD.

Dynamo Minsk 1 @ Magnitogorsk 2
Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 25/26, 1.00 GAA, .962 sv%
Season totals: 39 GP, 20-16, 6 SO, 1.98 GAA, .926 sv%

Vasily Koshechkin got his 20th win of the season and pushed his GAA below 2.00 all in one fell swoop in today's 2-1 win over Dynamo Minsk. Metallurg got a goal from former NHLer Stan Chistov off assists from both Fedorov brothers, Sergei and Fedor, in the win.

Dynamo Riga 4 @ Ekaterinburg 0
Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, DNP
Season totals: 39 GP, 4-3-7, -15, 12 PIM

The younger Kazionov got the night off as Ekaterinburg was blanked by the third Dynamo club, Dynamo Riga. That's right, the AHL has two teams called the Admirals, the KHL has three clubs called Dynamo. Former NHLer Marcel Hossa scored his league leading 25th goal of the season for Dynamo in the match.

Bolts Recall Dustin Tokarski to Tampa

TAMPA BAY, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski (toh-KAHR-skee) from the Norfolk Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today. This is the rookie netminder’s first career National Hockey League recall.

He has posted a 12-13-0 record with two shutouts, a 2.68 goals-against average and .911 save percentage in his first 25 professional games with the Admirals this season. He turned aside 28 shots last night to help Norfolk defeat the Hershey Bears 4-3 at Scope.

Tokarski was drafted by the Lightning in the fifth round (122nd overall) in 2008. He won the 2006 Canadian Midget National Championship with the Prince Albert Mintos, was MVP of the 2008 Memorial Cup with the Western Hockey League’s Spokane Chiefs, and won the gold medal at the 2009 World Junior Championships for Team Canada.

Blair Jones Named to AHL All-Star Team

NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk Admirals and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect forward Blair Jones has been named to the Canadian AHL All-Star team for the 2010 Time Warner Cable AHL All-Star Classic to be played next week at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. Jones will replace Admirals leading scorer Brandon Bochenski, who was named a starter to the PlanetUSA AHL All-Star team but is currently on NHL recall to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
