    We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.

    The Bolt Prospect of the Week for February 2, 2015 is … Cedric Paquette, C, Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL – USA).

    Cedric Paquette made his last few games as a Bolt prospect memorable.

    The third-year pro hit the 42 NHL games played mark this past week, graduating him from prospect status on Paquette spent the week lighting up the scoresheet, scoring five times in three games, including his first career hat trick in a division match-up against Detroit. He scored the game-winning goal for the Lightning against Columbus two nights later. Paquette was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week behind Carey Price, but beat Price out for our Bolt Prospect of the Week (ignoring details involved there).

    Sherbrooke Phoenix 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 1

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM, 2 SOG, 12/21 FO, 0 Hits
    With Sherbrooke: 19 GP, 13-15-28, -2, 20 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 14-28-42, -8, 34 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    Darcy was held scoreless but Sherbrooke was able to eke out a road win against the club at the bottom of the West Division thanks to netminder Evan Fitzpatrick, who stopped 34 of 35 shots in the match.

    North Bay Battalion 3 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4 (SO)

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 1-0-1, +3, 7 PIM
    With SSM: 9 GP, 3-12-15, +6, 17 PIM

    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    DeAngelo's point streak hit eight games with a first period marker that put the powerhouse that his club is up by three and he engaged in a round of fisticuffs that might very well have made some of the denizens of his hometown proud. It bears repeating that the Soo still hasn’t lost since DeAngelo (and others) were acquired at the OHL trade deadline.

    Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 3 (SO)

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM

    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Point was reduced to denting the score sheet being credited with a fight -- his second of the season -- and that about tells you all you need to know for how things were going for Moose Jaw on the ice Saturday night.

    Edmonton Oil Kings 0 @ Calgary Hitmen 5

    D Ben Thomas, CAL: Did not play
    Season totals: 39 GP, 5-16-21, +6, 18 PIM

    Bishop saves the day.


    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 35 shots for the victory. With the Lightning playing flat as a pancake in front of him, Bishop made a handful of key stops to give his club the time to pull away in the Third Period. Make no mistake, though, Bishop was the margin in this one and the game was closer than the scoreboard indicates.

    First Period
    19:36 TB Connolly (9), (Morrow, Garrison)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    10:02 TB Paquette (10), (Drouin, Killorn)
    11:43 TB Filppula (10), (unassisted)
    16:34 CBJ Johansen (19), (Savard, Murray)

    Bishop, Jason Garrison, and Ryan Callahan were the game's three stars.

    I can't help but be a little alarmed at how flat the Lightning have played recently going into games against lower-tier opponents like Carolina, Columbus, etc. There's some bad habits and a little bit of laziness/lack of focus (particularly on their continually awful PP) that crops up in these games that you don't see as much of against the big boys like Detroit. The mark of the really elite clubs is that they play their game regardless of who they're lining it up against, but that hasn't been the case lately for the Lightning. They'll need to get over that if they want to progress to the next level on their way to becoming a championship caliber team. Finding some sort of identity/concept on the PP would be a nice addition, too.

    Cedric Paquette had a goal (GWG), 3 shots, and 1 hit in 13:53. He was also 67% on draws. That's 5 goals in the last 3 games. Tonight was Cedric's 41st game of the season, which graduates him from prospect status here on the website. We've been online (officially) since the '05-'06 season, and in 9.5 seasons of hockey I can't recall a prospect hitting their graduation threshold with this kind of flair. You can't help but feel wonderful for the young man who was an overage 4th rounder who got passed over completely in his first draft year and had to work so hard to improve his skating to make it to the league, where he's now flourishing.

    Jonathan Drouin had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot in 13:29. It's lost in the meteoric rise of Cedric Paquette, but Drouin's got 4 helpers and is +4 in the last 3 games, as well. He's got 1 more game to go to graduate from prospect status on the website, too, and he's showing signs of finally starting to settle into the league now.

    Luke Witkowski was +2 with 1 shot in 12:33. Not noticable = very good for a rookie defenseman.

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 25 GP, 10-5-15, +9, 25 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    North Dakota was looking to avenge an overtime loss the previous night and got it Saturday night after O'Donnell delivered some overtime heroics, notching his 10th goal of the season in the process.

    No. 18 Quinnipiac Bobcats 2 @ Brown Bears 2 (OT)

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 26 GP, 5-21-26, +1, 21 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 40 GP, 12-26-38, +4, 16 PIM

    Peca followed his very productive Friday night with a helper on a third period tally that gave Quinnipiac the lead but Brown was able to respond soon after to force a stalemate.

    Minnesota Golden Gophers 4 vs Wisconsin Badgers 4 (OT)

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Tie, 21 saves on 25 shots
    Season totals: 24 GP, 12-8-3, 2.68 GAA, .901 sv%, 3 SO

    Vasiy wins the duel.

    HER-2 (SO)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots before denying 3 of 3 in the penalty shot session for the win. He's becoming a bit of a legend in the shootout.

    First Period

    Second Period
    SYR Richard, (7) (Gourde, Paradis), 4:22
    SYR Gourde, (16) (Angelidis), 6:32 (SH)
    HER Newbury, (14) (Byers, Gazley), 17:03

    Third Period
    HER Cornet, (7) (Galiev, Kundratek), 9:55 (PP)


    SYR- Marchessault

    Yanni Gourde was the game's third star. Can you tell the Hershey media picked the three stars?

    With the victory, Syracuse has climbed to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, 1 point up on the Manchester Monarchs. That's mildly amazing for a team that's 28th in the league on the PP. Imagine how good the Crunch would be if they had one.
