    We're officially into the dog days of preseason.


    Mathieu Garon took the loss for the Lightning.

    First Period
    10:05 MTL Gionta, (unassisted) (SH)

    Second Period
    2:19 MTL Gomez, (Cammalleri, Cole)(PP)
    3:49 TB Lecavalier, (Purcell, Downie)
    5:39 MTL Darche, (Spacek, Diaz)
    8:24 MTL Cole, (unassisted)

    Third Period
    12:55 MTL Cammalleri, (Plekanec)

    Just as I wouldn't read too much positive into the Lightning's last win, I wouldn't read too much negative into the spanking they've taken tonight. The forwards will be good when the season starts and more nights than not Roloson will be good. The problems are obvious with the backline and the fourth line, and improvement will be necessary as the season goes along. But, to this point, there's no reason to get too high or too low on this team heading toward opening night.

    Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 5

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 5 PIM

    Janosik’s power play assist gave him three helpers in three games. Gatineau was down 3-0 by the mid-way point of the game and had to play catch-up all night.

    Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Quebec Remparts 5

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 0 Hit
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    Milan and the Wildcats played on the same rink the Lightning practiced on earlier in the day. Patrick Roy’s Remparts skated to an easy 5-1 win Friday night. Milan had his first point of the season in his second game. Moncton was already down 5-0 at the time, unfortunately. The Lightning are in Quebec City to play the Canadiens Saturday night.


    Sudbury Wolves 2 @ London Knights 8

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM

    This is hard to understand. The Knights have scored eight goals in two of their three games this season, yet of those 16 goals, Namestnikov has only one assist toward the total. The good news for London is they’re getting it done without the first rounder’s offensive production. There’s enough talent around him that Namestnikov should have a big season. Finishing on the minus side of even in an 8-2 win is not going to help much. Second year player Ryan Rupert (2012) had a hatter for London.

    Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 4 PIM

    Schemitsch had an assist for the second straight game, but his Owen Sound Attack fell in a rematch of last year’s OHL championship won by the Attack. The Majors, last year’s Memorial Cup hosts, got the better of Owen Sound in the Cup tournament and finished runner-up to St. John last May. Leafs 2011 first rounder Stuart Percy had two goals for the Majors.

    Late collapse.


    Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals for the loss.

    First Period

    Second Period
    NOR 2:44 Johnson
    STJ 19:08 Matte, (Melichiori)

    Third Period
    STJ 8:30 Murray
    NOR 14:57 Smith
    STJ 17:36 Lampe, (Redmond)(PP)
    STJ 18:05 Redmond (PP)
    STJ 19:19 Armstrong (EN)

    The star of these two preseason games for the Ads was Tyler Johnson, who had a couple of helpers and a goal over the past two nights. You don't score a ton like this young man did in the WHL without having some idea how to play the game. It wouldn't shock me in the slightest to see him put up a 20+ goal 50+ point rookie campaign.
