    Inexplicable mistakes rob Lightning of fruits of a decent effort.

    TB-1
    FLA-3

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the loss. Played very well in a goaltending duel, but lost on an inexcusable mistake by his best d-man.

    First Period
    3:10 FLA Marchessault (7), (Yandle, Barkov)(PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    1:15 TB Palat (2), (unassisted)
    15:32 FLA Smith (3), (unassisted)
    19:24 FLA MacKenzie (1), (Yandle)(EN)

    Bishop was the game's third star.

    The Lightning played better than the scoreboard indicated tonight, as they really matched and exceeded the Panthers' intensity level and had one of their better forechecking nights of the year from about midway through the First Period on. Luongo held serve for the Panthers long enough for Victor Hedman to make the inexplicable mistake of allowing his pocket to be picked at the Lightning blueline allowing the winning goal to be scored against. It squanders an effort that, in my opinion, showed marked improvement from players like Palat and Johnson who have struggled to find their form early in this campaign.

    Brayden Point had 2 shots and 1 hit in 15:15.

    Slater Koekkoek had 1 shot and 3 hits in 11:11 as his minutes suffered with the return of Nesterov in the 7 d-man lineup.

    Kalamazoo Wings 0 at Wheeling Nailers 3

    W Brian Hart, KAL, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIMs, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIMs, 3 SOG

    Other Notables
    G Nic Riopel, KAL, L, 59:25 MIN, 25/26
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0-0, 2.51 GAA, 0.918 SV%, 1 SO

    Nic Riopel saved 25 of 26 shots Sunday night on the road in Wheeling, allowing just a single power play goal just past the midway point of the 2nd period. The Nailers added two empty net goals in the last minute and a half to make the victory look a bit more lopsided than it actually was. Just last weekend, Riopel allowed 8 Wheeling goals, so if you were looking for a response game, I'd say Riopel delivered. Kalamzoo returns home for a 3-game stand with Toledo rolling in Wednesday night followed by Cincinnati and Quad Cities on Friday and Saturday night.

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Charlottetown Islanders 3 @ Saint John Sea Dogs 2 (OT)

    W Bokondji Imama, SJ: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 17 GP, 6-5-11, -3, 12 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 48 GP, 7-12-19, -5, 86 PIM

    2015-2016 Season: 58 GP, 33-40-73, +35, 57 PIM

    Joseph and Imama both scored for the third straight game, but the Dogs fell to Charlottetown. Imama, who was sent back to juniors in part because he would be able to play more minutes and a more traditional top-9 role, is within one goal of matching last year’s goal total for the entire season. Filip Chlapik (Senators) scored two goals Sunday for Charlottetown, giving him 16 for the year – one head of Mathieu Joseph for second in the league. Chlapik tied for the league lead in points with 29.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    For a second straight night, the Crunch’s play in the third period lifted them to victory.

    Mike Halmo netted the go-ahead goal less than two minutes into the final frame and the penalty kill kept the Comets off the board the rest of the way, as Syracuse topped Utica, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “They’re a tough team to play. They’re battling hard, they’re engaged and they are tight defensively,” said Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, whose team rallied for three goals in the third period in a 3-2 win over Rochester Friday. “We had to go deep down to beat them. Big goal from (Halmo) in the third and a strong effort down low by (Yanni Gourde) and Cory (Conacher). It’s a good weekend for us and I like the way we played, especially in the third.”

  • 4 weeks 3 days ago

    Crunch get back on track with 2-0-0 weekend.

    SYR-2
    UTI-1

    Adam Wilcox allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the victory. Very solid win for young Wilcox with only 2 goals of support to work with. Very impressive.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    6:16 SYR Condra (2), (Conacher, Taormina)(PP)
    18:27 UTI Grenier (4), (Chaput, Subban)(PP)

    Third Period
    1:56 SYR Halmo (3), (Gourde, Conacher)

    Mike Halmo, Cory Conacher, and Wilcox were the game's three stars.

    This weekend ended up being about Syracuse proving they could win low scoring games with defense and goaltending. We know they have the forward depth and firepower to win a track meet, at least on paper. But, to be a really good team they must learn to keep the puck out of the back of their own net, and they went a few steps ahead in proving they can accomplish that this weekend.
