    Victoria Grizzlies 2 @ Cowichan Valley Capitals 3 (OT)
    W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 0-1-1, 0 PIM

    Game Notes: Justin Courtnall registered the primary assist on Victoria’s game tying goal in the 13th minute of the 3rd period, but the Grizzlies fell in overtime to Cowichan Valley 3-2. Courtnall has one goal and one assist in three games so far this season for the 0-1-1-1 Grizzlies.

    It is well known Justin is the son of former NHLer Geoff, and nephew of Russ Courtnall. The BCHL is evidentially popular for relatives of former NHLers as scoring the game winner for Cowichan Valley last night was Bryce Reddick, son of former NHL goaltender Pokey Reddick. Cowichan Valley's number-1 goaltender, who did not play last night, is Matt Ferraro, son of former NHLer and ESPN analyst Ray "Chicken Parm" Ferraro. Matt Ferraro is 3-0 on the year so far.

    Team White defeated Team Black today by a final count of 3-0 on the back of a Mathieu Darche hat trick in the final day of camp scrimmages. According to Erik Erlendsson of the Trib, two of Darche's goal were of the "soft" variety, given up by Johan Holmqvist. Brad Richards, Matt Smaby, Brad Lukowich, Chris Gratton and Kyle Wanvig each had assists.

    Karri Ramo was a perfect today between the pipes and unofficially takes the camp statistical title among goaltenders with a sparkling 1.08 GAA and .967 save percentage, followed closely by Denis.

    Erlendsson also reports a minor foot injury to forward Jan Hlavac and a potentially bad tailbone injury to enforcer Andre Roy which could possibly open up a spot for someone like Karl Stewart if it is serious.

    For the first time this year in Lightning camp there was a winning side at scrimmages as Team White defeated Team Black 2-1.

    In related news, Erik Erlendsson of the Trib reports Head Coach John Tortorella is planning to make his first cuts after Saturday's preseason game against the Caps. Tortorella reportedly plans on shaving the roster down by 7 or 8 players.

    Meanwhile, in Chesapeake, Va, Norfolk Admirals camp kicked off today with physical testing mimicking the grueling conditioning drills of the Lightning's camp.

    Different day, same results. Sunday's scrimmage ended in yet another 1-1 tie between Team Black and Team White, duplicating Saturday's result. According to Erik Erlendsson's blog, Team Black's goal came from the prospective fourth line with Nick Tarnasky getting the goal off an Andre Roy feed. Team White's goal was scored by free agent signing Michel Ouellet off a pass by Brad Richards.

    Erlendsson calls out overage prospect David Schneider for a couple of positive plays in today's game. Schneider spent the past four seasons in Finland playing in the SM-liiga for TPS and HPK and was a teammate of Karri Ramo when the two won a championship in 2005-2006. Schneider was signed to anchor the Norfolk Admirals' power play and should provide some offensive spark to the Ads' attack.

    Also on the positive side, today was another strong outing for the Lightning's goaltenders particularly Ramo and veteran Marc Denis. Erlendsson had Denis stopping 17 of 17 shots faced while Ramo stopped 16 of 17 including a 3-on-1 chance by Dan Jancevski.

    According to Tampabaylightning.com, day one of camp scrimmages ended in a 1-1 tie between Team Black and Team White. Team White's goal was scored by winger Kyle Wanvig off assists from Brad Richards and Doug Janik while Team Black's goal was scored by Vincent Lecavalier off assists from Vaclav Prospal and Paul Ranger.

    Wanvig and Janik continue to make a strong impression after good showings in camp during physical testing on Thursday and Friday. Erik Erlendsson also notes in his blog that Wanvig was displaying a strong physical presence throughout the game to go with his goal. The Lightning's top-12 forwards appeared to be set going into training camp, but Wanvig appears to be playing his way into the discussion of who will be the first forward called up at the very least.

    Erlendsson notes none of the defensemen vying for the team's #6 and #7 defenseman jobs separated from the pack, and that all three goaltenders played well with wunderkind Karri Ramo stopping 16 of 16 shots faced including a penalty shot by rookie pro Mike Lundin.
