    If the playoffs started tonight, Johnstown would be in.

    DAY-0
    JHN-2

    Morgan Cey stopped 35 of 35 shots faced for the shutout. ATO Rob Lehtinen led the way with 1 goal and 1 assist while red hot Radek Smolenak had a pair of assists. John Adams had the other Chiefs goal and Marek Kvapil also stayed hot with an assist. Cey, Lehtinen and Adams were the game's three stars.

    The win moves Johnstown back to .500 for the season at 31-31-6 and moves one point ahead of Reading into the final playoff spot in the ECHL North Division while still holding a game in hand. With Wheeling losing tonight to Cincinnati, Johnstown should have a 2 point lead on the Nailers as well at night's end. Johnstown controls their destiny and is now riding a three game winning streak in which they have beaten Cincinatti (#2 in the North Division), Toledo (#3 in the North Division) and Dayton (#1 in the North Division). Kvapil= season changer.

    Everett leads best-of-7 series 3-2

    The Everett Silvertips used a four goal second period to break open a tie game and untie their opening round series with Spokane.

    Most "ginormous-est" win of the season thus far.

    TB-4
    CAR-2

    Johan Holmqvist played well stopping 26 of 28 shots for the win. Vincent Lecavalier had an MVP caliber performance with 1 goal and 2 assists on 11 shots on goal in the victory. The goal was his 50th of the season and Lecavalier now sits at 103 points through 78 games. Wow. Vaclav Prospal also had a multi-point night with 1 goal and 1 assist and Martin St. Louis and the scoring machine that is Filip Kuba had the other Lightning goals. Shane O'Brien and Paul Ranger had individual assists.

    The win moves the Lightning back to within 3 points of Atlanta in the division with a game in hand. The most minute stumble by the Thrashers could set up an epic season finale with first round home ice and a division banner at stake. In addition, the Lightning open up a 3 point lead on 9th place and leapfrog the Rangers into 6th in the conference.

    One thing I won't miss in Norfolk: getting annihilated for what seems like two dozen games a year by Providence.

    SPR-2

Eric Healey and ATO signee Jacob Micflikier had the Falcons goals. Jay Rosehill and Norm Milley added assists.

    All of a sudden, with Special K as the spark, the playoff math is starting to favor the Chiefs.

    TOL-1
    JHN-6

    Ryan Munce made 24 stops for the win. The former Kings draft pick has won 3 of his last 4 starts. Radek Smolenak posted a 1 goal and 3 assist night to pace the Chiefs. Marek Kvapil added 3 assists and Gus Katsuras chipped in a pair of goals. Zbynek Hrdel had 1 goal and 1 assist and PJ Atherton had 2 assists to complete the list of 5 Chiefs players who posted multi-point nights. Defensemen John Adams and Ian MacLean had the team's other goals. Maxime Boisclair and Andrew Martens added individual helpers. Smolenak, Katsuras and Kvapil were named the game's three stars.

    And just like that Johnstown is just 1 point out of a playoff spot with 2 games in hand on the Reading Royals.

    London 8 @ Owen Sound 5
    London wins best-of-7 series 4-0

    Marek Bartanus and Owen Sound saw their season come to an end tonight as London defeated the Attack 8-5. The Attack outshot the Knights by a significant margin in all four games, including 47-19 tonight. Anthony Guadagnolo stopped only 8 of 14 shots for Owen Sound before being pulled this evening. The undrafted goaltender finished the series with an .804 save percentage and a 5.09 GAA. Bartanus finished the playoffs with one assist and a plus-1 rating in the four games. It is unlikely he'll be brought back as an overager by Owen Sound and he is a longshot for a professional contract after registering only 20 points in 57 games in this, his second year in the OHL. This may have been the last we'll see of Bartanus in North America.

    Mississauga 3 @ Sudbury 6
    Sudbury leads best-of-7 series 3-1

    Thanks to a five-goal second period, the upset-minded Sudbury Wolves put the Mississauga IceDogs on the brink of elimination with a 6-3 win tonight. Chris Lawrence had a power play goal early in the game to tie the contest at one, but it wasn't enough for the IceDogs. He also had six minutes in penalties. He finished minus-3. Game 5 is back in Mississauga on Sunday.

    Linkopings is going to the Elitserien finals.

    The club completed a five game upset of top seeded Farjestads today bumping off the regular season's best team 6-2. Lightning defenseman prospect Andreas Holmqvist did not suit up for Linkopings. The club now awaits the winner of the ongoing MODO/HV71 series.

    Kamloops 3 @ Prince George 4 (overtime)
    Prince George wins best-of-7 series 4-0

    Break out the brooms. Vladimir Mihalik and Prince George used a two-goal third period to tie Kamloops, then got a goal from Sharks first rounder Devin Setoguchi on their first shot of overtime to defeat the Blazers 4-3 and sweep their first round series. Two of the games (1, 4) went into overtime and games 2 and 3 were decided by just one goal. Kamloops held home-ice advantage to start the series. Mihalik did not register a point in Game 4, but was plus-1 with 2 PIM. For the series, Mihalik was scoreless and minus-3 with 6 PIM.

    Everett 1 @ Spokane 3
    Best-of-7 series tied at 2

    Top-seeded Everett lost their 1-0 lead in the game and 2-1 lead in the series when Spokane scored 3 third period goals (1 empty net) to take a 3-1 home win over the Silvertips. Dane Crowley was scoreless and minus-1 for Everett. Game 5 is Friday night in Everett.
