    WHL

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    No.4 Tri-City Americans 4 @ No.5 Vancouver Giants 0

    Western Conference Quarterfinals

    Kelowna leads best of seven series 3-0

    RW Brett Connolly, PG: Did not play (injured - shoulder)
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Prince George put up a good fight, outshooting Kelowna 41-29, but didn’t get the goaltending they needed and fell 7-6. Connolly, who is publicly considered day-to-day with an upper body injury (shoulder separation), has not played since the opening period of Game 1. His season and possibly junior career is now potentially one game away from being over. (Note: His junior career would be over if he made the Lightning next season. He is not eligible to begin a season in the AHL until 2012. He could join AHL Norfolk – if healthy – this season when the Cougars are finished).

    Season Totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2 +3, 2 PIM

    Yes, you read that right. On a team full of stars, Teigan Zahn was First Star tonight for Saskatoon in their Game 2 win over Prince Albert. Zahn is now at a point-per-game pace for the playoffs. Sure, it’s just two games, but Zahn, a rugged defenseman known more for his fists and leadership, is a PPGer officially. Game 3 is Wednesday in Prince Albert.

    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO

    WHL

    Western Conference Quarterfinals – Game 1

    No.5 Vancouver Giants 1 @ No.4 Tri-City Americans 2 (OT)
    Tri-City leads best of seven series 1-0

    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM

    Ashton scored on the power play with just 2.2 seconds left in the first overtime to give the Ams a Game 1 win over the Giants. He threw the puck at the net from the corner and it banked in off Vancouver goaltender Mark Segal (undrafted), who stopped 44 shots in the loss. TC outshot Vancouver 27-9 in the third period. Game 2 is Saturday in Washington. This was only Ashton’s second career playoff goal. He had one in 11 games two years ago for Lethbridge and none in 19 games for Lethbridge the year before that. It’s safe to say he’s improved a lot since then. (TC Americans photo)

    Season Totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Connolly, the Cougars’ captain, left the game early with an apparent shoulder injury after being hit by Rockets forward Mitchell Callahan. PG is calling it an "upper body injury" and not giving details, which is not a surprise at this time of the year. Kelowna scored three times in the third period to take Game 1. Game 2 is Saturday in Kelowna.

    Western Conference Quarterfinals – Game 1

    No.3 Spokane Chiefs 3 @ No.6 Chilliwack Bruins 2 (OT)

    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM

    Johnson scored the game-tying goal in the third period then earned an assist on Darren Kramer’s (undrafted) overtime winner as the Chiefs took Game 1 in Chilliwack, 3-2.

Game 2 is Saturday in Chilliwack because of a women’s basketball tournament in Spokane. The series will go 2-3-1-1-1. Johnson’s goal was his 14th career playoff score.

    Season Totals: 57 GP, 11-29-40, +26, 30 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 1-0-1, +3, 0 PIM

    Landry’s sixth career playoff goal was the first for the Juniors this postseason and tied Game 1 between Halifax and Montreal at one. Landry’s goal sparked a five-goal outburst by the Juniors, who allowed two late goals to Halifax. Game 2 is Friday. Landry had three postseason goals last season with Drummondville in 14 games. He had two with the Volts in their Memorial Cup run under Guy Boucher in 2008-09.

    Season Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM

    Montreal gave Landry the night off as they prepare for the playoffs. Montreal will be the No.2 seed and play 15th seeded Halifax. As the fifth seed, Gatineau will play Chicoutimi. Janosik came within two goals, one assist, and three points of setting career highs in those respective categories.

    Season Totals: 62 GP, 33-38-71, -6, 106 PIM

    TC won their third game in a row to finish the season. As the fourth seed they’ll play No.5 Vancouver in the first round. Ashton set career highs in goals, assists, and points in his final junior regular season.

    Spokane Chiefs 6 @ Portland Winterhawks 3
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 71 GP, 53-62-115, +26, 48 PIM

    So close. Johnson needed three points to tie Kings prospect and Medicine Hat Tigers forward Linden Vey for the league scoring title. As it was, Johnson got a late assist and an empty net goal to come within one point of sharing the Bob Clarke Trophy. He finished the season with career highs in games, goals, assists, points, and plus/minus. His previous career high for points was 71, set last season in 64 games. Johnson did win the WHL goal scoring title. Spokane will play Chilliwack in the first round thanks to Vancouver’s 5-0 win Sunday over Everett, which propelled the Giants into fourth.

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Fargo Force 4 (SO)
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 46 GP, 20-34-54, +26, 24 PIM

    Mullin had two helpers in regulation then scored in the shootout to help Fargo to a win at home. Both of Mullin’s assists came in the third period – the last shorthanded – as Fargo mounted a comeback on the Storm. The Force improved to 13-10-3 at home; they’re 18-9-1 on the road. They remain tied for third in the West, one point behind Omaha. Tri-City is in the Western Conference cellar.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 4 @ Plymouth Whalers 3
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, +2, 6 PIM (boarding double minor, high sticking)
    With Guelph: 24 GP, 13-12-25, -6, 42 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 27-29-56, -6, 75 PIM

    Panik scored his first goal since returning Friday from a sprained ankle. Guelph, who is now done for the regular season, clinched the Western Conference’s seventh seed and avoided playing top-ranked Owen Sound in the first round. They’ll face Saginaw, who won the West Division. Panik set career highs for goals, assists, points, and PIM.

    London Knights 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 6
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador sat out as Jordan Binnington got his second straight start as top-seeded Owen Sound wanted to get their No.1 going again before the playoffs. With the Attack’s regular season over, it’s unlikely Zador will see much - if any - ice time in the post-season. Schemitsch is could be back when Owen Sound faces London in the first round.

    WHL

    Chilliwack Bruins 4 @ Tri-City Americans 6
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 70 GP, 52-61-113, +26, 48 PIM
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    With Tri-City: 32 GP, 17-27-44, +8, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 61 GP, 33-38-71, -4, 106 PIM

    TC finally got the better of Spokane after the Chiefs had beat the Americans five straight times. They also broke the Chiefs' 10 game win streak. Johnson broke a personal two game scoreless streak with his 112th and 113th points of the year. His 52nd goal of the year put him one ahead of Chilliwack’s Ryan Howse (Flames) for the league goal scoring title. Howse is out of games and Johnson’s lead on everyone else is secure. He has one game left and is two points behind Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey (Kings) for the league scoring title and Bob Clarke Trophy. Spokane plays at Portland Sunday; Vey is out of games. Spokane has clinched the three seed. Ashton, meanwhile, scored his 33rd goal of the year Saturday night. He has 17 points in his last 10 games. The Americans, who have clinched the four seed, will play either Chilliwack or Vancouver in the first round depending if the Giants win Sunday.

    Kamloops Blazers 1 @ Prince George Cougars 5
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-2-3, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM

    Connolly extended his point streak to five games with a three point night in the final game of Prince George’s regular season. He has 10 points in those five games. The Cougars will play second-seeded Kelowna, the B.C. Division champion, in the first round. By winning Saturday PG avoided the eighth seed and playing powerhouse Portland. Kelowna had the fourth most points in the conference. After all the talk about Connolly’s durability he played under a microscope of sorts during the season. And while he did miss two weeks with a knee sprain (he was expected to miss a month), he proved to be every bit the offensive weapon he was expected to be when the Lightning chose him sixth overall last summer. His other games missed were due to his inclusion on the Canadian WJC squad. He set career highs for goals and points this year.

    Regina Pats 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 4
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon completed their regular season with a win over Regina. Zahn set career highs for games, assists, points, and plus/minus. The Blades captain hopes to raise the Ed Chynoweth Cup at the end of the playoffs as Saskatoon is the clear favorites going into the post-season as the league points champion.

    Panik played his first game since February 11 when he suffered a sprained ankle. He’s back for the Storm just in time for the playoffs. Guelph is still in seventh in the West, though eighth place London is two points behind with a game in hand. The eighth place finisher meets top-seeded Owen Sound in the first round. Zador was back on the bench for Owen Sound after starting two games this week and winning them both. Schemitsch is expected back for the Attack’s playoff opener.

    Prince George Cougars 3 @ Kamloops Blazers 2
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 58 GP, 45-25-70, -4, 26 PIM

    Connolly (pictured) scored twice in the first period to spark Prince George to a 2-0 lead, but Kamloops fought their way back to tie the game and send it to overtime. Connolly failed to convert his shootout attempt. With the win, the Cougars eliminated Kamloops from playoff contention. PG is still hanging on to the eighth spot in the West.

    Seattle Thunderbirds 0 @ Spokane Chiefs 5
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 69 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson went scoreless for the second straight game, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but he’s trying to catch Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey for the league scoring title. Vey leads by three points. Spokane put up 34 shots on Seattle a game after they peppered Chilliwack goaltender Lucas Gore with 78 shots. Only one went in as the Chiefs beat the Bruins 2-1 in a shootout. Johnson earned three awards, including the Chiefs Player of the Year honor, in a pre-game ceremony on Friday night on the Chiefs Coca-Cola Regular Season Finale. Johnson was named the Chiefs Player of the Year in a pre-game ceremony, and also given the team's Humanitarian of the Year award for the third straight season and the Ken Rabel Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year.

    Saskatoon Blades 3 @ Regina Pats 2 (OT)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 71 GP, 3-21-24, +39, 133 PIM

    Zahn earned the only assist on Brayden Schenn’s overtime winner for Saskatoon. Though Zahn has 133 penalty minutes on the year, he has only two in his last 11 games. The captain will need to stay out of the box in what looks to be a long Saskatoon playoff run.
