    (W1) London Knights 5 @ (W5) Saginaw Spirit 5
    Western Conference Semifinals – London wins best of 7 series 4-2

    C Vladislav Namestnikov , LDN: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 10 GP, 3-6-9, +5, 8 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    London closed out their conference semifinal series against Saginaw with a 5-3 road win. London is likely breathing a sigh of relief as the series was much closer than the 4-2 final game tally. London was down two games to one heading back to Michigan and got a big road win. Then Namestnikov made a strong individual effort in overtime of Game 5 to score the game winner and give London a pivotal win. Namestnikov has four points in his last two games after taking some criticism from the London fanbase for failing to make his mark early in the series. The Knights will await the winner of the Kitchener-Plymouth series. Plymouth leads 3-2 after shutting out the Rangers on Saturday.

    Tri-City Storm 1 @ Waterloo Black Hawks 3

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Did not play
    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

    After handling nearly all the goaltending duties from the time he was acquired from Green Bay to leading the Storm to securing a playoff spot, Wilcox got the night off. Tri-City has one more game before the playoffs begin and can’t move up in the standings.

    OHL

    (W5) Saginaw Spirit 1 @ (W1) London Knights 2 (OT)
    Western Conference Semifinals – London leads best of 7 series 3-2

    C Vladislav Namestnikov , LDN: 1-1-2, +2, 2 PIM (roughing)
    Playoff Totals: 9 GP, 3-4-7, +4, 8 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Huge. Lightning prospect Vladislav Namestnikov (pictured) scored at 4:58 of the first overtime to give the Knights a 2-1 Game 5 win and a 3-2 series lead over Saginaw. The story for much of the game was Saginaw goaltender Jake Paterson, who is expected to go in the second round of this summer’s draft. Paterson stopped 46 shots on Friday – many of them in spectacular fashion. Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a helper and a tip-in goal for London, and defenseman Olli Maatta, who could go around the midway point of the first round this summer, had the primary assist on Namestnikov’s game winner. Game 6 is Saturday in Saginaw.

    (1) Saint John Sea Dogs 5 @ (13) Baie-Comeau Drakkar 3
    Quarterfinals – Saint John wins best of 7 series 4-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 7 SOG, 4 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 8 GP, 7-3-10, +8, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    While Baie-Comeau could congratulate themselves for being the first team to come within two goals of Saint John in a playoff game, that party will have to be held while they are packing up their locker room as the Sea Dogs completed the sweep of the Drakkar with a 5-3 win Wednesday. Gauthier was held scoreless for the first time in six games, though he tied for the team lead with seven shots on goal. Saint John will await the lowest seed to advance to the semifinals.

    OHL

    (W1) London Knights 5 @ (W5) Saginaw Spirit 2
    Western Conference Semifinals – Best of 7 series tied 2-2

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 8 GP, 2-2-4, +2, 4 PIM
    Season Totals: 63 GP, 22-49-71, +15, 50 PIM

    Vladislav Namestnikov’s second goal of the playoffs, scored in the first period, gave London a 3-0 lead and turned out to be the game winner as the Knights scored four times in the first period, chasing Saginaw goalie Jake Paterson, and added an empty netter late for the 5-2 score to even the series at two games apiece. London takes back home ice advantage in the series, which shifts back to London for Game 5 on Friday night. Namestnikov’s goal was scored when he banged in a rebound off a Seth Griffith shot. He was on the ice for a “plus” when the empty net goal was scored by Gregg McKegg (Leafs). Panthers prospect Vincent Trocheck had two goals for the Spirit.

    (1) Saint John Sea Dogs 5 @ (13) Baie-Comeau Drakkar 2
    Quarterfinals – Saint John leads best of 7 series 3-0

    C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 0-1-1, +1, 4 PIM (hooking, slashing), 4 SOG, 0 Hits
    Playoff Totals: 7 GP, 7-3-10, +7, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 47-39-86, +46, 67 PIM

    Saint John came into the game averaging just under nine goals per contest, and though the Drakkar were able to hold them to five, the Sea Dogs still came out on top, 5-2. Saint John, the league’s top seed, is now up 3-0 on Baie-Comeau and is now 7-0 in the playoffs. Danick Gauthier had an assist to stretch his point streak to five games. He is sixth on the team in scoring, 12 points behind Minnesota pick Zack Phillips for the team lead.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
