    Ontario Hockey League

    Erie Otters 5 @ Windsor Spitfires 2

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    DiGiacinto, who is expected to play a first line role this year with the Spits, did not play on Friday. He tweeted earlier in the day that he’d be a healthy scratch as he was just returned to the team from Tampa Bay. Super-prospect Connor McDavid (2015) had a goal, two assists, and was first star for the visiting Otters.

    Western Hockey League

    Regina Pats 7 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 1

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Moose Jaw’s newly named captain, Brayden Point (pictured), registered an assist in his first game of the season with Moose Jaw after spending the last few weeks with the Lightning. His Warriors were blown out at home, however, 7-1. Moose Jaw has been outscored 18-3 in their three games this year. They finished 10th in the 12-team Eastern Conference last season.

    Medicine Hat Tigers 4 @ Calgary Hitmen 2

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

    Thomas made his season debut after being reassigned to the Hitmen from Tampa Bay earlier this week. He had hooking and holding minor penalties in the game. A mobile, two-way defender, the key to Thomas raising his point totals will be gaining power play time this season.

    New additions help Lightning roll the Stars.

    DAL-3
    TB-6

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 13 shots before giving way to Evgeni Nabokov, who allowed 1 goal on 9 shots the rest of the way.

    First Period
    8:04 TB Stralman (1), (Boyle, Connolly)
    11:36 DAL Blanchard (1), (Ritchie, Dickinson)

    Third Period
    7:44 TB Callahan (1), (unassisted)
    9:00 DAL Spezza (1), (Ritchie, Ranford)

    Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman, and Brian Boyle were the game's three stars: an ex-Rangers sweep.

    After icing two rosters against Nashville primarily composed of AHL and junior-level players, the Lightning put out something closer to their opening night roster tonight. They hung a six-pack of goals on the board. That's not too shabby.

    Chelyabinsk 4 vs. Khanty-Mansiysk 2

    Nothing to sneeze at, actually.

    TB-0
    NSH-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the hard luck loss. He sparkled at times. Best of luck to Coach Zettler deciding between Kristers and Vasya most nights in Syracuse.

    First Period
    3:17 NSH Forsberg (1), (Ribeiro)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Gudlevskis was the game's third star.

    I can't feel too upset with the Lightning playing the roster they did tonight and finishing a post or two from upsetting something that closely approximates Nashville's opening night team. Shea Weber and Roman Josi were Nashville's high men in ice time tonight. Tampa Bay? Mark Barberio and Andrej Sustr were the blue hairs in there tonight for the Lightning. Kind of says it all, and it's another sign for optimism for Syracuse fans.

    Masin made his North American debut for the Petes and finished scoreless and minus-1. Kingston jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Peterborough started to claw back. Panthers third rounder Juho Lammikko had a goal and two assists for the Fronts, who are playing without Lightning prospect Henri Ikonen for the first time in two seasons.

    Young Lightning Crunch Nashville.

    NSH-2
    TB-4

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 30 shots in his North American debut for the victory. After falling behind 2-1 in the Second Period, the big Russian slammed the door the rest of the way, which is what good starting goaltenders do.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    1:02 NSH Forsberg (1), (Wilson)
    5:41 TB Kucherov (1), (Namestnikov, Marchessault)
    7:40 NSH Smith (1), (Roy)

    Third Period
    8:35 TB Marchessault (1), (Namestnikov)
    13:49 TB Barberio (1), (Filppula, Witkowski)
    15:08 TB Marchessault (2), (Namestnikov, Kucherov)

    Jonathan Marchessault, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Luke Witkowski were the game's three stars.

    If you're a Syracuse Crunch fan, you have to be very satisfied with the way this group of players performed tonight. Your stud rookie netminder lived up to expectations. What may be your top line exploded for 3 goals including keying a big comeback. And Luke Witkowski beat the brown runny out of someone, to boot. Not a lot to complain about there.
