The Midterm Evaluation rolls on as the Chiefs roll into Augusta, Ga and the James Brown Arena as Johnstown tries to prove "they've got soul and they're super bad" and Augusta is just "talkin' loud and saying nothing." Bolt Prospects is live blogging the game via the B2 Networks feed and will post game updates during the intermissions.

Hate the outcome. Loved the style of play from these two teams matching up.
Marc Denis stopped 28 of 32 shots in the loss. Vincent Lecavalier had 1 power play goal and 1 assist. Vaclav Prospal scored the other Lightning goal. Individual helpers belonged to Cory Sarich, Dan Boyle and Martin St. Louis. The Lightning fail to capitalize on the opportunity to leapfrog several teams in the conference standings.

Game sheet from NHL.com.
Chris Lawrence had 2 of Mississauga's 9 goals tonight as the Ice Dogs whipped Nikita Alexeev's alma mater, the Erie Otters, 9-2. Lawrence was also plus-1 and had a minor penalty. He earned the game's second star award for his efforts. Lawrence now has 23 goals and 23 assists for 46 points in 34 games played. He's also plus-19. Travis Fuller, who participated in the Lightning's prospect camps this past summer, was third star for the Ice Dogs tonight. Fuller is 11-28-39 in 36 games.
In Sudbury, Kevin Beech stopped 26 of 27 shots in regulation and overtime but was beat on 2 of 3 shootout attempts as Barrie defeated the Wolves 2-1. This was a good showing for Beech, considering the overager was pulled in his last start and twice in the past few weeks.
Mississauga wasn't the only team to put up 9 Friday night as Dane Crowley and Swift Current destroyed Regina 9-0. Crowley scored his fourth goal of the year and was plus-2.
