Stan Lascek scored two goals and added an assist tonight as Chicoutimi downed Baie-Comeau 8-5. Lascek, who maintained his five point lead for the QMJHL scoring race over teammate Maxime Boisclair, was named the game's first star. Both of his goals came on the power play. Also in the Q, another Lightning prospect extended his league-lead in a statistical category as Mark Tobin was minus-two for Rimouski in a 10-2 loss to Victoriaville. Tobin is now minus-28 on the year, which leads the league. He also had an assist in the game. In the WHL, Justin Keller had two goals as Kelowna beat Tri-City 7-3.

Vasily Koshechkin and Lada Togliatti tied Ak Bars Kazan today 2-2. The tie moves Koshechkin's record to 12-4-2 on the season. Koshechkin's strong play of late has led to some speculation he may be asked to play for Team Russia in one of the year's remaining Euro Tour events.

Karri Ramo and HPK were defeated today by Tuukka Rask and Ilves Tamperre 4-1. Rask will be Ramo's tandem partner in the uncoming U-20 World Junior Championships for Finland, and the loss may be a blow to Ramo's aspirations to grab the team's starting job. Ramo slips to 4-3-3 on the season stopping 21 of 24 shots faced before being pulled for the extra attacker late. Rask stopped 24 of 25 for the win.
