Point scored his 27th goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough to beat Brett Connolly’s former team. Helping the Cougars was Brett’s brother, defenseman Josh Connolly (pictured), who had two goals and was named third star Saturday night. The younger Connolly, who went undrafted last year, is an offensive defenseman who was traded from Kamloops to his hometown Cougars a few weeks ago. He has 11 goals and 34 assists for 45 points in 52 games. The 5’11” righty had 45 points last year with Kamloops in 72 games, along with a minus-35 rating. He’s a combined minus-19 this year.

The Lightning just asserted their will on the Coyotes in the Second Period and early Third Period to build a 3-1 lead and eventually take away the victory. It puts them in a position to cap off a very successful road trip that many other teams in the Eastern Conference were desperately hoping would critically wound Tampa Bay.
Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:19.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 23 shots for the victory, as he bathed in sweet goal support.

You get a power play goal and it turns out to be the game winner. Funny how that works. Syracuse remains in second in the Eastern Conference, just 1 point shy of Manchester.

Karpat 3 vs. HPK 2
Saku Salminen, HPK, DNP
Season totals: 32 GP, 3-4-7, E, 4 PIM
Karpat scored a pair of Third Period goals to come from behind and defeat HPK 3-2. Ex-Flyers farmhand Mika Pyorala led the way with 1 goal and 3 points for Karpat.
Mike Angelidis didn't pause to think over his answer.
The Crunch captain netted the eventual game-winning power play goal, chipped in a pair of assists, and dropped the gloves in a brawl in the final minute. But Angelidis was most proud of the two points in the standings after a 5-3 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.
"I'm proud the team got two points," Angelidis said. "We've lost a couple games there ... We got two in a row here. So it's key for us to keep going here. I think we've got to get our swagger back. The chemistry is starting to click here, especially offensively, hopefully we can just keep riding it."
