We'd like to thank the INS for making sure this month's winner got called up today in honor of winning the award.
Marek Bartanus was -1 in Owen Sound's 5-3 loss to London.
Chris Lawrence was +1 in Mississauga's 5-2 win over Toronto.
Kevin Beech stopped 10 of 11 shots faced in 40 minutes of relief to get the win in Sudbury's 5-4 come-from-behind victory over Sarnia.
Dane Crowley was +1 with 2 penalty minutes in Swift Current's 6-2 loss to Moose Jaw.
Vladimir Mihalik was -1 in Prince George's 5-2 loss at Vancouver.
Last night in the final game of the CHL-Russia Challenge, Team WHL crushed the Russian selects 8-1 to complete the six game sweep for the CHL. Denis Kazionov was scoreless and -2 with 6 penalty minutes in the game. Kazionov finished the tour tied for third on the Russian team in scoring with 2 goals and 4 points, officially, with 10 penalty minutes which is a solid outing considering the low level of the teams Russia usually sends to this event and the high level of talent the CHL can conversely send into these games. Kazionov will now return to his club team Tver in the Russian Superleague.
Gerald Coleman was strong in the shootout.
Gerald Coleman stopped 35 of 38 shots faced in regulation and overtime before stopping all 5 Titans shooters in the shootout session to secure the win. Rookie Maxime Boisclair, who has been scorching hot over the past month, led the way offensively with 1 goal and 1 assist. Radek Smolenak and Randy Rowe scored the other Chiefs markers while freshly signed Eric Przepiorka, Doug Andress and PJ Atherton chipped in individual helpers. Coleman and Boisclair were named first and third stars of the game, respectively.
