    The series returned to the Art Hauser Centre and Prince Albert rallied and forced a game seven behind a pair of goals from Cole Fonstad (2018 draft eligible) and four-points from the captain Curtis Miske (undrafted). Brayden Burke and Jayden Halbgewachs led the Warriors to a 3-2 lead but Sean Montgomery (undrafted) scored just before the end of the 2nd to knot the score. After the Raiders scored a power play goal early in the 3rd, Brett Howden knotted the game with a power play goal of his own before Fonstad scored his second of the game, the game-winner and forces game seven Tuesday night back in Moose jaw.

    Third Period collapse undermines Lightning effort.

    NSH-4
    TB-1

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 25 shots for the loss. It just wasn't good enough. The second goal allowed was an unlucky double deflection, so I won't fault him for that, but he didn't make the situational saves needed in the Third Period. It feels like Vasilevskiy hasn't been on top of his game for at least the last month or two and he's due. It's needed.

    First Period
    7:50 NSH Johansen (14), (Forsberg)

    Second Period
    2:46 NSH Forsberg (22), (Subban, Saros)(PP)
    7:32 TB Palat (10), (Stralman)

    Third Period
    6:24 NSH Forsberg (23), (unassisted)
    9:29 NSH Smith (23), (Ekholm, Subban)

    Ondrej Palat was the game's third star.

    At some point, if the Lightning are going to turn this around, they've got to get the payoff. As with the confrontation with Boston, I can honestly say that on balance the Lightning played well enough to win. Hell, through 40 minutes the Lightning were outshooting Nashville 24-13 even with Steven Stamkos leaving the game early with a presumed injury. Situational saves? Situational goals? Puck luck? The Lightning aren't getting any of those things, and they've got to get a result soon to payoff the increased focus and intensity they really seem to be putting into these games now.

    All Dan Girardi needed on that third goal against was a matador's cape to make the scene complete. Horrible.

    Anthony Cirelli was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits and he was 50% on 12 draws in 13:54. He's been playing really well over the last week or two.

    Sammy Walker notched his first career USHL goal as that line with Dylan Mills (Niagara commit) and Cole Koepke (Minnesota-Duluth commit) continues to produce for the Musketeers. Finnish University of Wisconsin commit Sampo Ranta (2018 draft eligible) scored twice and added an assist to pace Sioux City and former Wisconsin goalie Matt Jurusik (undrafted) stopped 30 shots. Walker’s goal earned him Third Star honors.

    Back at the Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw for Game 5, and the Warriors poised to clinch on home ice. But the Raiders didn’t get the memo, as Prince Albert jumped out to a 3-0 lead and didn’t look back. Sean Montgomery (undrafted) scored twice to pace the Raiders. There is a quick turnaround for Game 6 back in Prince Albert on Easter Sunday evening.

    Checkers put abrupt end to Crunch win streak.

    CHA-4
    SYR-1

    Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    7:56 CHA Carrick (9), (Poturalski, McKegg)

    Second Period
    13:08 CHA McKegg (12), (Poturalski, Saarela)

    Third Period
    1:39 CHA McKegg (13), (Saarela, Poturalski)
    6:23 SYR Archambault (12), (Condra, Peca)(PP)
    18:37 CHA Saarela (24), (unassisted)(EN)

    Ingram was the game's third star despite being victimized for 2 goals and 1 assist by ex-Lightning legend Greg McKegg. The betrayal cuts deep.

    The Crunch are now off until Friday, when I suspect the game will be a-Foote in Bingo against the Devils.

    The Syracuse Crunch couldn’t overcome their slow start.

    The Checkers controlled play throughout most of the first period and the Crunch trailed by two heading into the final frame. Syracuse rallied in the third, but Charlotte held on for a 4-1 victory at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The loss snaps the Crunch’s seven game win streak.

    “It’s two teams that are playing playoff style hockey right now,” Crunch captain Erik Condra said. “They gave us a little bit of a wake-up (call) in the first and second period with their speed, and we came out and it was too little, too late in the end.”

    Omaha Lancers 4 @ Muskegon Lumberjacks 2

    Committed to: St. Cloud State University

    Cole Gallant (Western Michigan commit) scored twice for the Lancers, first the equalizer and then the game-winner as Omaha doubled up the Lumberjacks. Zach Driscoll (Bemidji State commit) was inserted into the crease at the 2:34 mark of the 2nd period after Muskegon scored the 2-1 go-ahead goal on 16 year-old starter Christian Sbaraglia (Penn State commit). Driscoll stopped all 24 shots and got the back-door win after Omaha’s second-half rally.

    Tri-City Storm 2 @ Sioux City Musketeers 5

    F Sammy Walker, SC: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG

    The Walker-Koepke-Mills line continues to produce for the Musketeers with Walker and Dylan Mills (Niagara commit) setting up Cole Koepke (Minnesota-Duluth commit) for his first goal of the game as part of a Sioux City three-goal 1st period. Mills notched his goal in the first, as well as Finnish University of Wisconsin commit Sampo Ranta (2018 draft eligible) netting the first of his two goals. Koepke would seal the game with an empty netter shortie with 73 seconds remaining. Walker is a point-per-game player in the six games since rejoining Sioux City, but still looking for his first goal.

    #4 Halifax Mooseheads 4 @ #13 Baie-Comeau Drakkar 0 (Game 5)
    Round of 16
    Mooseheads wins series 4-1

    C/W Otto Somppi, HAL: Injury Scratch
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 28-55-83, +39, 28 PIM
    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    The Mooseheads punched their ticket to the quarterfinals behind a 41-save shutout by Alexis Gravel (2018 draft eligible), the #1 ranked North American goalie prospect. Arnaud Durandeau (NYI, 2017 6th round pick) notched a pair of goals and Benoit Olivier-Groulx tallied three assists to pace Halifax. Somppi remains sidelined with that upper body injury he sustained midway through Game #1.

    Lightning restore order to their world by crushing their farm team.

    TB-7
    NYR-3

    Louis Domingue allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the win. Made a handful of timely saves and eventually got to bathe in the deep, cool waters of sweet, sweet goal support.

    First Period
    14:59 NYR Skej (4), (Buchenevich, Desharnais)

    Second Period
    3:15 TB Paquette (4), (Miller, Sergachev)
    4:33 TB Killorn (15), (Cirelli, Hedman)

    Third Period
    0:35 TB Miller (22), (Hedman, Killorn)(PP)
    1:53 TB Paquette (5), (Conacher, Kunitz)
    2:38 TB Point (29), (Gourde)
    8:14 NYR Chytil (1), (Zuccarello, Hayes)
    16:31 NYR Kreider (16), (Zibanejad, Fast)
    18:16 TB Point (30), (Gourde)(EN)
    19:26 TB Girardi (5), (Paquette, Kunitz)(PP)

    Cedric by God Paquette, J.T. Miller, and Alex Killorn were the game's three stars.

    After the tough outcome last night the team had a little hangover in the First Period, but ultimately pulled it together to have another strong effort that keeps things pointing in the right direction heading toward the postseason. They were facing an overmatched Rangers team that, on paper, they should've trounced and that's ultimately exactly what they did.

    Anthony Cirelli had a helper and was +1 with 3 shots and 1 blocked shot in 15:15 of ice time. He was also 60% on 20 draws.

    Alexander's greatness puts red hot Crunch over Belleville.

    BEL-1
    SYR-4

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    3:19 BEL Leier (2), (Paul)
    5:57 SYR Volkov (20), (Dumont, Gallant)

    Second Period
    10:08 SYR Volkov (21), (Joseph, Thomas)

    Third Period
    3:16 SYR Joseph (15), (Dumont)
    16:12 SYR Lynch (14), (Lipanov, Verhaeghe)

    Alexander Volkov, Pasquale, and Gabriel Dumont were the game's three stars. Volkov becomes the first Crunch player to clear 20 goals this season, which is quite the rookie campaign for a 2nd round pick who didn't have a huge body of work coming into this season. He's definitely justified the love of the Lightning scouts.

    Syracuse is 8-0-0-1 in their last nine games and, oh by the way, the game's about to be a-Foote.
