N.A. Juniors Game Night: 2/19

Kelowna Rockets 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 2
G Torrie Jung, KEL: Loss, stopped 26 of 28 shots, *Second Star*

Jung took a shutout into the second half of the third period, but Spokane would score two goals, including the winner with just over 2 minutes to go in the game. Jung has not won in 5 straight starts and has lost 7 of 8 since a personal 5 game win streak in early January.

Brotherly Love: Drayson Bowman of Spokane, who scored the game winning goal, fought his brother, Collin Bowman of Kelowna, early in the third period.

WHL Playoff Update: It appears all Lightning WHL prospects will be in the playoffs with the exception of Dana Tyrell of Prince George. Kelowna (Jung) and Lethbridge (Fadden) may be the only teams with a Lightning prospect to host a first round series, however.

Quick Charged With Identity Theft

Multiple news sources are reporting Norfolk Admirals and former University of Michigan defenseman Kevin Quick has been charged with identity theft. Quick was accused of stealing a teammate's bank account numbers while at Michigan. He was later dismissed from the team and eventually signed an Amateur Tryout Agreement with AHL Norfolk.

According to the Ann Arbor News, Quick, 19, stood mute during his arraignment in 15th District Court in Ann Arbor, which he attended with his mother and attorney. He is charged with single counts of identity theft, fraud under false pretenses, and using a computer to commit a crime.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native faces up to five to seven years in prison if he's convicted. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 12.

NHL Game Night 2/16: Capitals at Lightning

Final nail in the coffin.

WSH-3
TB-2

Johan Holmqvist stopped 32 of 35 shots in the loss.

First Period
Washington 16:12, Tomas Fleischmann 8 (power play) (Alexander Semin, Nicklas Backstrom)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
Washington 13:52, Dave Steckel 5 (Matt Bradley, Quintin Laing)

Tampa Bay 16:22, Jan Hlavac 9 (Filip Kuba, Shane O'Brien)
Washington 17:00, Alexander Semin 16 (Viktor Kozlov, Mike Green)

This game was said to be critical in determining just how much the Lightning were going to be sellers at the deadline. There was little doubt moves were going to be made, but a win here might've meant wholesale changes would've been put off until the summer. Now? Sell, sell, sell.

AHL Game Night 2/16: Sharks at Admirals

Maybe the game that gets Marc Denis back to the NHL?

WOR-2
NOR-4

Marc Denis stopped a preposterous 48 of 50 shots faced for the victory.

First Period
NOR Milley, (15) (Jones, Schneider), 7:25
NOR Rosehill, (2) (Mihalik, Milley), 12:22
WOR Setoguchi, (5) (Kaspar, Raduns), 16:49 (PP)
WOR Setoguchi, (6) (Traverse, Cavanagh), 17:39 (SH)

Second Period
NOR Szczechura, (12) (Wanvig, Smolenak), 6:18

Third Period
NOR Wanvig, (17) (Milley, Jones), 19:39 (EN)

Denis was named first star of the game while Norm Milley earned third star of the game honors. There are rumors the Lightning may put Denis through re-entry waivers in the next week or two in the hope another team will take him. And effort like tonight coupled with a great relief appearance last night will go a long way toward making that happen.

Blair Jones now has two multi-point games in a row after a long drought while Radek Smolenak broke his short scoring slump with a helper on the game winning goal.

Don't look now but Vladimir Mihalik, favorite target of the Norfolk fan base, improved his +/- to even on the season with a +3 night and had an assist.
