    2015-2016 (Finland): 37 GP, 5-8-13, +10, 16 PIM

    Spencer was plus-2 and the Petes won Wednesday despite getting outshot 27-16. He’s not putting up a lot of points, but Paquette is doing his job in the faceoff circle for the Petes. Not bad considering he played on the wing for Niagara before the trade.

    London Knights 4 @ Flint Firebirds 3 (SO)

    W/C Mitchell Stephens, LDN: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 11/22 FO

    Stephens scored for the seventh time in the last six games as London won in a shootout in Flint, 4-3. His shorthanded goal sent the game to overtime, and he also had the shootout winner. Not a bad night. It wasn’t enough for the Flint media to give him a game star, though.

    Western Hockey League

    Moose Jaw Warriors 3 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 4

    C Brett Howden, MJ: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 41 GP, 28-30-58, +4, 54 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 68 GP, 24-40-64, -7, 61 PIM

    Likely 2017 top-2 pick center Nolan Patrick had two goals and was first star for Brandon. Most mock drafts have him going to the Avalanche first overall.

    Kelowna Rockets 0 @ Kamloops Blazers 6

    G Connor Ingram, KAM: Win, 33 saves on 33 shots, shutout, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 20-9-2-1, 2.26 GAA, .932 sv%, 3 SO
    2015-2016 Season: 61 GP, 34-15-5-4, 2.61 GAA, .922 sv%, 4 SO

    Ingram stopped all 33 shots he faced, earning his third First Star award in the last 10 days. He now has a .10 lead on Carter Hart (Flyers) for first in the WHL in save percentage, though he trails Hart in GAA, 2.07 to 2.26. Hart has a sizeable lead in shutouts, 7-3. Ingram is third in the WHL in that category.
    gram is in goal.

    When Kucherov got his mojo back.

    LA-0
    TB-5

    Ben Bishop turned aside all 28 shots he faced for the shutout victory. Got help from his horseshoe to usher back in a night of U. of Maine Justice.

    First Period
    7:46 TB Drouin (16), (unassisted)

    Second Period
    6:55 TB Kucherov (20), (Namestnikov, Sustr)
    11:02 TB Dumont (1), (Brown, Hedman)
    18:18 TB Kucherov (21), (Namestnikov, Witkowski)

    Third Period
    13:08 TB Coburn (2), (Drouin, Vermin)

    Nikita Kucherov, Bishop, and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's three stars. After struggling to regain his usual form for more than a month, Kucherov showed signs of getting back to his hold self in the last game against Anaheim. I'm happy to say the indications from that game were real and that Kucherov looks like he might be ready for a strong stretch run. As for the much maligned Namestnikov, he needs more nights like this because he's playing for his job in Tampa Bay at this point.

    Do these back to back wins mean the Lightning suddenly have a chance to stride back into the playoff chase? Well, to comfortably make it in at 96 points, they'd need 42 of a remaining 56 points. Is a .750 winning clip realistic? There's your answer.

    Brayden Point was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 14:49. He was also 29% on 7 draws. Point's next game will be his 41st of the season and he will graduate from prospect status on the website.

    Luke Witkowski had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 8:25.

    Jake Dotchin was +1 with 5 hits in 14:00.

    Gabriel Dumont had his first goal in a Lightning jersey and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:42. He was also an uncharacteristic 17% on 6 draws.

    Joel Vermin had a helper and was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 10:29.

    2015-2016 Totals: 26 GP, 1-1-2, -4, 26 PIM

    2015-2016 Season: 59 GP, 13-33-46, -15, 25 PIM

    Somppi set a new career high for goals in a season with 14. His goal Sunday was of the highlight reel variety as he kicked a bouncing puck up above his waist, then bunted the puck into the net. Good stuff. Nico Hischier (2017) had two goals and three assists as he tries to overtake Nolan Patrick of Brandon for the No. 1 spot in this summer’s draft.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Erie Otters 6 @ Kingston Frontenacs 1

    With Oshawa: 26 GP, 13-21-34, +18, 8 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 62 GP, 21-38-59, -15 27 PIM

    Season Totals: 40 GP, 31-51-82, +51, 27 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 67 GP, 24-49-73, +19, 18 PIM

    Raddysh and Cirelli (pictured) both scored in the first period as Erie built a 4-0 lead after one and 6-0 after two periods. Cirelli is starting to find his groove in the Erie lineup with nine points in his last five games.

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 7 @ North Bay Battalion 4

    W Boris Katchouk, SSM: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *Third Star*
    Season: 49 GP, 24-19-43, +5, 32 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 63 GP, 24-27-51, +7, 61 PIM

    Katchouk tied his career high for goals in a season, set in 14 fewer games.

    Crunch can't parlay the false hope goal into real hope.

    SYR-2
    TOR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    9:44 TOR Froese (18), (Griffith, Rychel)(PP)

    Second Period
    19:23 TOR Froese (19), (Campbell, Johnsson)

    Third Period
    6:42 TOR Rychel (9), (Dermott, Froese)(PP)
    13:10 SYR Richard (12), (Conacher, Condra)(PP)
    14:52 SYR Comrie (6), (Taormina, Conacher)

    Tanner Richard was the game's third star.

    A three goal deficit in the Third Period of a pro hockey is just a death sentence 99% of the time. You'll see teams get that "false hope goal" to pull within one, but they rarely have enough gas to get the equalizer. It happened again to Syracuse today. They managed to get the false hope goal with a good 5+ minutes to go, but just couldn't find the equalizer. That's why you need timely goaltending and goal scoring to stay within 2 and give yourself a chance, because it's doom if you get down by 3.

The last Sea Dogs game he failed to register a point in was October 22. He has 44 points in those 26 games. Boko Imama was unable to get in on the scoring fun.
