    OHL

    Barrie Colts 4 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 0
    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 32-23-55, +31, 38 PIM

    This was a big win for conference-leading Barrie over their closest competitor in the East (10 points back).

    Kitchener Rangers 5 @ Sudbury Wolves 2
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 6-9-15, -1, 12 PIM
    With Sudbury: 12 GP, 3-2-5, -6, 6 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    Sointu scored his first goal since December 17, but thanks to the WJCs and time missed with injury, that was only four games ago for him.

    Oshawa Generals 0 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 6 saves on 9 shots
    Season Totals: 34 GP, 13-16-2-1, 3.45 GAA, .897 sv%, 2 SO

    Zador had won two in a row, but couldn’t make it out of the first period at East Division-leading Ottawa. Kevin Balie allowed three goals on 33 shots the rest of the way. Oshawa sits in sixth in the Eastern Conference.

    WHL

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Regina Pats 3
    RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, +1, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Spencer Edwards), *Third Star*

    With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

    Ashton (pictured) scored the game winner with 94 seconds left in the third period. The Pats are on a 6-0-0-1 streak and are within five points of the conference’s eighth spot with a game in hand on the two teams holding that position.

    Vancouver Giants 2 @ Kamloops Blazers 1 (SO)
    C James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    With Tampa Bay: 43 GP, 2-3-5, -9, 18 PIM

    Wright started the game on a line with Lance Bouma (Flames 3/2008) and Tomas Vincour (Stars 5/2009). He was wearing his familiar No.19, which was taken before his arrival from Tampa. The Giants got a late goal from Vincour, then won the shootout 2-1 to break a losing streak.

    C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 1-3-4, -4, 14 PIM

    Not a good night for the Catamounts as they lose to a lower-ranked conference rival at home.

    D Luke Witkowski , WMU: 1-0-1, -1, 2 PIM (high sticking), 2 SOG
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 2-3-5, -10, 28 PIM

    Witkowski scored the second goal of his collegiate career to cut No.1 Miami’s lead to 2-1 early in the second period, but the Broncos couldn’t get any closer.

    With the point, the Lightning have entered into a five team pile-up for the final two playoff spots in the conference. But, if they were even mediocre in shootouts, they'd be snugly in.

    ANH-2
    TB-1 (SO)

    Antero Niittymaki allowed 1 goal on 32 shots before allowing 2 of 3 shooters to defeat him in the penalty shot session.

    First Period
    TB 9:47, St. Louis 15 (Stamkos)

    Second Period
    ANH 6:36, Wisniewski 3 (Getzlaf, Whitney)(PP)

    Third Period

    Shootout
    ANH- Getzlaf, Wisniewski
    TB- Stamkos

    Do I really need to say much more about the Lightning's shootout futility this season? I don't know what it is about the Lightning that makes them so ineffectual at it, despite having some ridiculously skilled players. The gimmick at the end of the game aside (which I, A. Hate, and B. Isn't really that exciting), both teams played a strong game and both teams got strong goaltending. It was a chippy game, and the Lightning answered the bell fairly well against an Anaheim team that has a lot of size and toughness.

    Paul Szczechura had 1 shot and 1 hit in 9:26. He's now 4 games from graduation here on Bolt Prospects.

    Norfolk remains undefeated in regulation under Jim Johnson, but fails to secure the second point.

    NOR-2
    SPR-3 (OT)

    Jaroslav Janus stopped 31 of 34 shots for the overtime loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NOR Simek, (12) (Smolenak, Jackson), 11:02
    SPR Fretter, (18) (Trukhno, Pokulok), 13:03
    SPR Plante, (2) (David, Wiseman), 16:15

    Third Period
    NOR Fornataro, (3) (Wishart, Smolenak), 0:24 (PP)

    Overtime
    SPR Reddox, (11) (Tarkir, Minard), 1:32

    Janus was named the game's third star. A scoring change took away a point from Ty Wishart on the winning goal against Hartford, so tonight's assist is actually his 20th point of the season. The question remains the same though: why not 30? He's got it rolling, and shows no signs of letting up. Radek Smolenak is starting to step up in clutch time of the season. He has 2 goals and 6 points on the current road trip, on which the Admirals have claimed 9 of a possible 10 points in the 5 games.

    Norfolk stays at 2 games under .500 with 45 points in 47 games and remains in 4th place in the East Division. However, due to the crossover rules this season, it's highly likely that only the top 3 teams in the East will make the postseason. The Admirals picked up a point on 5th place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to move 1 point ahead of the Penguins with the Pens holding 2 games in hand. They also picked up a point on Binghamton to move 3 points up on the Sens with the Senators holding 4 games in hand. That's the good news. The bad news is that they lost a point to Adirondack, which is now 2 points up on Norfolk with 2 games in hand.

    And that leads to a huge 4-point tilt tomorrow night between Norfolk and the Phantoms. If Norfolk wins in regulation, they'll move into a tie with Adirondack for the final playoff spot in the East at 47 points. I suspect that's why Jim Johnson saved Dustin Tokarski for that matchup. He's 2-0-0 in his starts on this road trip, including the big 1-0 shutout in Lowell last Sunday.

    QMJHL

    Victoriaville Tigres 1 @ Moncton Wildcats 2
    D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 46 GP, 11-31-42, +29, 48 PIM

    Barberio has 17 points in his last 13 games. He scored the game winner on a third period power play. Moncton (34-11-1-3) has won 11 straight and 20 of their last 22, but just now snuck into the CHL Top-10 at No.9. They’ve taken two in the last week from Victoriaville, who’s ranked No.8 in all of Canada.

    OHL

    Belleville Bulls 3 @ Peterborough Petes 1
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 12-12-24, +8, 29 PIM
    With Bulls: 9 GP, 3-3-6, -7, 10 PIM
    With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 44 GP, 15-8-23, -11, 41 PIM
    With Bulls: 31 GP, 13-7-20, -9, 23 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    Panik broke out of a five-game scoreless streak with a First Star effort on the road. He set up DeCoste with five seconds left in the second period to give the Bulls a 2-0 lead. Panik scored the insurance goal with just over five minutes left in the game.

    Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Barrie Colts 4
    W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 32 GP, 5-9-14, E, 12 PIM
    With Sudbury: 11 GP, 2-2-4, -5, 6 PIM
    With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

    LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 47 GP, 32-23-55, +30, 38 PIM

    Hutchings has 22 goals in his last 24 games, a time span which includes a four-game pointless streak. Sointu was making his first appearance since the World Juniors. He reportedly returned to Finland for surgery after taking a puck to the face in the tournament. Barrie is ranked second in the latest CHL Top-10.

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1 @ Oshawa Generals 2 (SO)
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 28 saves on 29 shots
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 13-15-2-1, 3.38 GAA, .899 sv%, 2 SO

    Zador (pictured) won his second in a row and had his shutout streak at over 100 minutes before the Soo scored early in the third period. He stopped one of two shooters in the shootout, which was won by the Generals when they went three for three.

    Omsk 2 @ KHK MVD 0
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, Win, 31/31, SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 38 GP, 21-15, 4 SO, 2.00 GAA, .916 sv%

    Former Lightning first rounder Alex Svitov assisted on both Omsk goals as Karri Ramo notched his 4th shutout of the season. Ramo is now tied for 4th in the league in shutouts behind fellow Lightning prospect V. Koshechkin (7), former NHLer Robert Esche (6), and Yarolslav netminder Georgy Gelashvili (6).

    Ekaterinburg 3 @ Noovosibirsk 4
    Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 45 GP, 5-3-8, -17, 16 PIM

    Kazionov played 9:20 in the match and scored his 5th goal of the season, but it wasn't enough to lift Ekaterinburg to victory in a critical battle for the last playoff spot in the KHL's Eastern Conference. Novosibirsk moved into a tie with Ekaterinburg and Khabarovsk at 54 points, but Novosibirsk holds 8th in the conference by virtue of the one game in hand they hold over both clubs. Former Lightning forward Alex Kharitonov had his 3rd goal of the season in the match for Novosibirsk.

    Magnitogorsk 4 @ Novokuznetsk 0
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 30/30, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Season totals: 44 GP, 23-18, 7 SO, 1.95 GAA, .928 sv%

    Koshechkin notched his league leading 7th shutout of the season to help Magnitogorsk keep pace with Yulaev just 2 points out of first place in the Eastern Conference. Former Lightning draft pick Fedor Fedorov had his 5th goal of the season in the match for Metallurg. Koshechkin is 2nd in the KHL in wins behind only former NHLer Robert Esche (26).

    Cherepovets 4 @ Dynamo Moscow 3 (SO)
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 50 GP, 3-11-14, -7, 36 PIM

    Harju played 15:49 in the match and was 46% on draws. Harju's lifelong teammate and Edmonton Oilers prospect Linus Omark scored his 19th goal of the season in the loss for Dynamo.

    Mytischi 5 @ Dynamo Riga 6 (OT)
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 6 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 14 PIM

    Karsums played 11:43 in the match and notched a goal and also assisted on a goal by former NHLer Tyler Arnason. Marcel Hossa scored his league leading 30th goal of the season in the match for Riga.

    OHL

    Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 7 @ Belleville Bulls 2
    C Richard Panik, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 41 GP, 11-10-21, +6, 29 PIM
    With Bulls: 8 GP, 2-1-3, -9, 10 PIM
    With Windsor: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

    RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 43 GP, 14-8-22, -11, 41 PIM
    With Bulls: 30 GP, 12-7-19, -9, 23 PIM
    With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

    Not a good night for the Bulls, who were tied with Mississauga at one after the first period. Panik’s scoreless streak stretched to five games. Belleville is tied for ninth in the conference and is just five points behind Brampton for eighth, but they have to make their run now. Mississauga has the second best point total in the conference at 71.

    In case you needed a reminder of what a special talent #4 is...

    MTL-0
    TB-3

    Antero Niittymaki stopped all 33 shots he faced tonight for the shutout. It's been a heck of a bounce back these past couple of games from Niitty after being somewhat terrible in 2 of the 3 games prior to that.

    First Period
    TB 9:50, St. Louis 14 (Downie)

    Second Period
    TB 2:23, Lecavalier 14 (Tanguay, Downie)
    TB 5:54, Stamkos 28 (Foster, Lecavalier)(PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Vincent Lecavalier, between the legs, 2-0 Lightning. Eat your heart out, Montreal. Have I professed my continuing admiration for Steve Downie and Matt Smaby lately? Downie had a pair of assists tonight and was second star of the game while Matt Smaby continues to single-handedly force opposing teams to respect the Lightning at Tampa Bay's blueline and in the neutral zone. Don't get me wrong, Mattias Ohlund will hit you. But, #32 will harm you. He only got credit for 1 hit tonight. As Bobby Taylor has said on the television broadcasts before, though, the scorekeepers seem to routinely short change Smaby on his hit totals at the Forum. Downie and Smaby: they're both gentlemen and scholars, I tell you.

    Paul Szczechura had 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, 1 hit, and he was 67% on draws in 10:54. Szczechura is now 5 games away from graduation from prospect status here on Bolt Prospects.

    Jim Johnson is 4-0-0 as Head Coach.

    NOR-5
    HFD-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the win.

    First Period
    NOR Lashoff, (4) (Simek, Hale), 2:51 (PP)
    HFD Byers, (12) (Locke, Roche), 10:05 (PP)
    NOR Parrish, (11) (Fadden, Wishart), 14:12

    Second Period
    HFD Crowder, (10) (Ambuhl, Owens), 2:42
    HFD Roche, (1) (Locke), 6:49
    NOR Tyrell, (2) (Cruthers), 10:10
    NOR Hale, (1) (Smolenak, Lashoff), 19:09 (PP)

    Third Period
    HFD Locke, (19) (Williams, Heikkinen), 15:08 (PP)
    NOR Fadden, (2) (Fornataro, Jackson), 17:14

    Mark Parrish was named the game's first star. It's absolutely amazing. After being nowhere statistically for the first half of the season, Mitch Fadden and Dana Tyrell have stepped up and found the scoresheet regularly on this road trip. After going 38 games without a goal, Tyrell now has a goal in each of the past couple of games. And, after going scoreless for the first 15 games of his pro career, Fadden now has 1 goal and 5 points in the past 4 games.

    After a scoring change on the game winning goal, Ty Wishart now has 4 multi-point games in his last 6 contests. He's got 20 points now. Why not 30? You can also file Matt Lashoff having his first multi-point night of the season tonight in the category of good news. Much like Radek Smolenak, who started to get on track in the last game and had an assist tonight, the Admirals need Lashoff to start playing to his potential if they're going to push their way into the playoffs.

    All in all, despite allowing 4 goals, the Admirals can feel very good about tonight's win considering their captain, Ryan Craig, is away from the team temporarily while he and his wife are having a baby. With the win, Norfolk now creeps to just 2 games under .500. More to the point, the Admirals have jumped to with 1 point of Adirondack for the final playoff spot in the East Division, with Adirondack holding 2 games in hand. They're tied with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at 44 points with the Penguins also having 2 games in hand. They've also moved 2 points ahead of Binghamton, but the Senators hold 4 games in hand.

    Norfolk gets a day off before heading back to Springfield, which is in last place in the Atlantic Division, on Friday night. Here's the big one, though: circle it on your calendars. Norfolk has a colossal 4 point divisional tilt in Adirondack on Saturday night. Looking at the schedule, the formula for the Admirals to make the playoffs is pretty simple: they have 14 road games left and 20 at home. They're playing 2 games over .500 on the road by and games under .500 at home. If they can start protecting home ice better and win the lion's share of the 4 point divisional tilts left on their schedule, they will get in. Norfolk has 4 games left against Adirondack (2 home/ 2 away), 6 games left against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (4 home/ 2 away), and 3 games left against Binghamton (0 home/ 3 away).
