    OHL

    (W5) Saginaw Spirit 5 @ (W1) London Knights 2
    Western Conference Semifinals – Saginaw leads best of 7 series 2-1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 7 GP, 1-2-3, E, 4 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Saginaw stole home ice advantage away from top-seeded London on Monday night by winning in the Knights’ barn, 5-2. Spirit goalie Jake Paterson (pictured), who was ranked No.3 among North American goalies by Central Scouting in their final draft rankings for 2012, stopped 42 of 44 shots for first star honors. Paterson could be a target of the Lightning with one of their second round picks. Among the saves he had was a remarkable stop on a Vlad Namestnikov slapshot that reportedly seemed like a sure goal. It would have been Namestnikov’s second point in his last six games. He has been in a defensive role, matched-up against Saginaw’s Brandon Saad (Blackhawks). However, Saad was on the ice for three Spirit goals on Monday, but Namesntikov was on the bench each time. Game 4 is Wednesday in Saginaw.

    (W1) London Knights 2 @ (W5) Saginaw Spirit 4
    Western Conference Semifinals – Best of 7 series tied 1-1

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (slashing)
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 1-2-3, E, 4 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Saginaw held serve at home, defeating the Knights on Sunday in Michigan. London won Game 1, 5-2. Blackhawks second rounder (2011) Brandon Saad (pictured) had two goals and an assist for Saginaw, who knocked off likely top 2012 pick Nail Yakubov, top-10 pick Alexander Galyenchuk, and their Sarnia teammates in the first round, 4-2. Namestnikov, whose line was matched up against Saad to start Game 2, has one assist in his last five games. Game 3 is Monday in London. <

    USHL

    Sioux City Musketeers 3 @ Tri-City Storm 2 (OT)

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: OT Loss, 31 saves on 34 shots, *First Star*
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 34 GP, 16-17-1-1, 2.91 GAA, .916 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Though there’s no “X” next to the team on the USHL standings page, the Storm appear to have clinched a playoff spot by picking up a point Saturday night against Sioux City. Des Moines lost in a shootout and are five points behind Tri-City with two games to play. Wilcox was named first star for the 300th time in the last month it seems, and has backstopped his “new” team from the bottom of the standings into the playoffs. At least one USHL writer has pegged Wilcox (pictured) for goaltender of the year and says he should get MVP consideration. Wilcox is capable of stealing a short series in the playoffs if he gets some offensive help.

    QMJHL

    (13) Baie-Comeau Drakkar 2 @ (1) Saint John Sea Dogs 10
    Quarterfinals – Saint John leads best of 7 series 2-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct, slashing), 4 SOG, 3 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 7-2-9, +6, 6 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Not satisfied with their nine goals in Game 1, the Sea Dogs put up 10 in Game 2 to take a 2-0 series lead over the Drakkar. Gauthier had his seventh goal of the playoffs and was 14/20 on faceoffs. Saint John has outscored their opponents 53-13 in their sixth games. That’s just under nine goals a game. And that’s just silly. Game 3 is Tuesday in at Baie-Comeau.

    USHL

    Tri-City Storm 1 @ Lincoln Stars 4

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 40 saves on 43 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 32 GP, 16-16-1, 2.90 GAA, .916 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Tri-City dropped a big game on the road against rival Lincoln, but Des Moines’ loss at home means the Storm stays five points up for the last playoff spot in the West. Both teams have three games remaining.

    QMJHL

    (13) Baie-Comeau Drakkar 3 @ (1) Saint John Sea Dogs 9
    Quarterfinals – Saint John leads best of 7 series 1-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 5 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 6-2-8, +5, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Thirteenth-seeded Baie-Comeau, fresh off a sweep of fourth-seeded Victoriaville, was no match for top-seeded Saint John, who scored nine against the Drakkar on Friday night to take a 1-0 series lead. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier scored his sixth of the playoffs in the win and led the team with five hits. Minnesota prospect Zack Phillips had two goals and two assists for the Sea Dogs. Charlie Coyle, another Wild prospect, had a goal, his 10th of the playoffs. Game 2 is Saturday night.

    OHL

    (W5) Saginaw Spirit 2 @ (W1) London Knights 5
    Western Conference Semifinals – London leads best of 7 series 1-0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 1-2-3, +1, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Predators first rounder Austin Watson had two goals and an assist, including an empty netter to seal the game, as London took Game 1 against Saginaw, 5-2. The Spirit were coming off an upset of fourth-seeded Sarnia in the first round. Namestnikov was scoreless for the third time in the last four games. He started the game alongside former Lightning camper Seth Griffith, who had two assists in Game 1. Game 2 is Sunday in Michigan.

    OHL

    E1-Niagara IceDogs 4 @ E8-Oshawa Generals 1
    OHL First Round – Niagara wins best of seven series 4-2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 2 PIM
    Season Totals (OS, OSH): 49 GP, 2-18-20, +9, 24 PIM

    Oshawa’s season came to an end on Sunday after a 4-1 loss at home to top-seeded Niagara. The Gens put up a good fight, tying the series at 2 before ultimately bowing out. The junior career of 2010 third round pick Geoffrey Schemitsch likely comes to an end, though he can play as an overager next year in the OHL if he’s invited and willing.

    Future: The Lightning hold Schemitsch’s rights until June 1. If he is not signed before then, he can re-enter the draft. It is unlikely he’ll be taken. Schemitsch had 40 points in his rookie/draft year with Owen Sound, then only played in 45 games the next year, scoring 20 points. He matched that 20 points this past year in 49 games, but again battled injuries, most notably concussions. Schemitsch has good size, is a righty shot, and has good, smooth mobility, but you would have liked to have seen everything come together for him by now and be a healthy, 50-point two way defenseman at the junior level. Both Schemitsch and Adam Janosik are up for a contract with the Lightning and both could be signed, but the Bolts already have Daniel Milan, JT Brown, Alex Killorn, Cory Conacher, Danick Gauthier, and possibly Vladislav Namestnikov beginning their first contracts next year (Namestnikov is signed, but could be sent back to juniors or go to the AHL – his contract doesn’t kick in unless he goes to the AHL). With NCAA free agent Danny DeKeyser choosing to return to school, it’s possible there is another spot open for a defenseman, and speculation is that would go to Janosik. Nothing is guaranteed, however.

    Tri-City Storm 2 @ Waterloo Black Hawks 4 (Friday)

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 21 saves on 24 shots

    On Friday night, Wilcox let in three as Tri-City fell on the road in Iowa. Notre Dame commit Vince Hinostroza had two goals for Waterloo, new Lightning prospect J.T. Brown’s former club.

    Tri-City Storm 6 @ Sioux Falls Stampede 3 (Saturday)

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Win, 37 saves on 40 shots
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 32 GP, 16-16-1, 2.90 GAA, .916 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Wilcox stopped 37 shots to help the Storm get two points in South Dakota. With Des Moines losing five of their last six games, Tri-City sits six points up on the Bucs with Des Moines having five games left and Tri-City four. The Storm are three points behind Sioux City for fifth in the East. The top six teams in each conference make the playoffs.

    OHL

    E8-Oshawa Generals 3 @ E1-Niagara IceDogs 5
    OHL First Round – Niagara leads best of seven series 3-2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 5 GP, 0-3-3, -1, 2 PIM
    Season Totals (OS, OSH): 48 GP, 2-17-19, +8, 24 PIM

    Having dropped their last two games, Niagara dominated possession in Game 5, outshooting the Gens 59-25 on their way to a 5-3 win. The game was tied at two entering the third period before the IceDogs exploded for three goals in about nine minutes. Islanders first rounder (2011) Ryan Strome had two of the three third period goals for Niagara. Former Lightning prospect Brock Beukeboom was scoreless for the IceDogs. Current Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch had a helper, his third of the series. Game 6 is Sunday in Oshawa.

    W1-London Knights 8 @ W8-Windsor Spitfires 3
    OHL First Round – London wins best of seven series 4-0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, +2, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    After Windsor stayed close in the first three games, London finally broke out of their “offensive slump” and put up a snowman on the Spits in Game 4 to complete the sweep of their first round series. Fans and followers of the Knights, who are loaded at forward, have been wondering where the offense has been the last few weeks. Hopefully for the Knights they found what they were looking for. Namestnikov had a goal and an assist in Game 1 but has been quiet since. He did have a helper in Game 4. London and Brampton are the only teams to advance so far in the OHL playoffs.

    QMJHL

    1-Saint John Sea Dogs 5 @ 16-Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 1
    QMJHL First Round – Saint John wins best of seven series 4-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (holding), 5 SOG, 1 Hit
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 5-2-7, +3, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    The good news for Cape Breton is it’s over. Saint John “only” scored five goals against them in Game 4, after scoring 13, 8 and 8 in the first three games. Gauthier scored his fifth goal of the series in Game 4. The Sea Dogs will face Baie-Comeau in the quarterfinals.

    3-Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 4 @ 14-Gatineau Olympiques 3 (OT)
    QMJHL First Round – Blainville-Boisbriand wins best of seven series 4-0

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM (roughing), 2 SOG, 3 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, -7, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 51 GP, 6-26-32, -13, 55 PIM

    In what was probably the last junior game of his career, Adam Janosik (pictured) had a goal, assist, and was named second star as the Olympiques couldn’t hold a lead and fell to the Armada in overtime. A former third round pick of the Lightning, Janosik is up for a contract from the Lightning. If he’s not signed by June 1, he goes back in the draft. He could be signed by AHL Norfolk to a tryout agreement and play and practice with the team, or be assigned to ECHL Florida. There doesn’t appear to be any open spots with either club, however. Perhaps he’s brought in to practice with his future team.

    4-Victoriaville Tigres 4 @ 13-Baie-Comeau Drakkar 5 (OT)
    QMJHL First Round – Baie-Comeau wins best of seven series 4-0

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: Did not play
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals (MON, VIC): 62 GP, 2-9-11, -16, 73 PIM

    Tigres fans have to be furious after their fourth-seeded club just got swept by the 13th-seeded team. At least this game was close, won in overtime by the Drakkar. The previous game was a blowout. Milan did not play in Game 4, which made Game 3 the final game of his junior career. He’s already signed to an NHL contract and like Janosik could join the organization in some fashion this year with a tryout agreement. If not, he’ll join next season. It’s been a disappointing year statistically for Milan, who had 40 points last season. While signed for his defense, few expected him to finish with 11 points in 62 games, especially in the wide-open QMJHL.

    OHL

    E1-Niagara IceDogs 3 @ E8-Oshawa Generals 5
    OHL First Round –Best of seven series tied 2-2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Playoff Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, -2, 2 PIM
    Season Totals (OS, OSH): 48 GP, 2-17-19, +8, 24 PIM

    Coyotes pick and Team Canada WJC veteran Mark Visentin allowed five goals on 23 shots as Niagara had their 2-0 series lead completely erased by eighth-seeded Oshawa. Columbus pick Boone Jenner, a favorite of Bolt Prospects heading into the draft last summer, had a goal and two assists for the Gens. Former Lightning draft pick Brock Beukeboom was scoreless in Game 4 for Niagara. His rights were traded to the Blues in the Eric Brewer trade last year. He had 16 points in 47 games for Niagara this season.

    1-Saint John Sea Dogs 8 @ 16-Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 2
    QMJHL First Round – Saint John leads the best of seven series 3-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 3 Hits, *First Star*
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 4-2-6, +3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Mercy. Saint John crushed Cape Breton for the third straight game, this time 8-2. They’ve scored 29 goals in three games. Gauthier was first star for his two goals on Tuesday. Minnesota prospect and former Sharks pick Charlie Coyle also had two goals to give him eight goals and 12 points in three games. He had an assist taken away from his six point game in Game 1. The slaughter will likely end Wednesday in Sydney in Game 4.

    3-Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 8 @ 14-Gatineau Olympiques 5
    QMJHL First Round – Blainville-Boisbriand leads best of seven series 3-0

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -8, 8 PIM
    Season Totals: 51 GP, 6-26-32, -13, 55 PIM

    Janosik’s junior career may only have one game left in it as the Armada are on the verge of a sweep in their first round series with Gatineau. Game 4 is Wednesday night in the Olympiques barn. Janosik’s assist was his first point of the playoffs.

    4-Victoriaville Tigres 3 @ 13-Baie-Comeau Drakkar 5
    QMJHL First Round – Baie-Comeau leads best of seven series 3-0

    D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0 -1, 2 PIM (slashing), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season Totals (MON, VIC): 62 GP, 2-9-11, -16, 73 PIM

    Fourth-seeded Victoriaville fell in an 0-3 hole in the series to the 13th seed, and did it by allowing a snowman in Game 3. The Tigres coach is likely in hot water considering Victoriaville had Memorial Cup aspirations not too long ago. The Drakkar can sweep the Tigres on Wednesday in Game 4.

    W8-Windsor Spitfires 2 @ W1-London Knights 3
    OHL First Round – London leads best of seven series 3-0

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (holding)
    Playoff Totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    2011 Lightning camper Seth Griffith (pictured) had two more goals to extend his playoff totals to four as London won yet another close game, this time 3-2. Namestnikov was scoreless for the second straight game. The Knights can complete the sweep of the Spits on Thursday in Windsor.
