Montreal scored twice in the late third to send the game to an extra session, then defeated the CHLâ€™s top ranked team in a shootout. Patrick Roy and Quebec are 15-2-0-2 on the year. They're 0-1-0-1 this week - the same week Roy blamed Lightning coach Guy Boucher for the lack of offense in the QMJHL. #GuyBoucherKarma
Oshawa Generals 3 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 7

Season Totals: 7-3-1-1, 3.48 GAA, .880 sv%, 1 SO
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-1-1, +3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 15 GP, 0-1-1, -5, 36 PIM
Beukeboom (pictured) finally earned his first point of the year, although it was part of a poor performance by his fellow Lightning prospect Michael Zador. Zador was pulled in the first period.
Belleville Bulls 0 @ Kitchener Rangers 8
C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-0-0, -5, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 11-10-21, E, 21 PIM
A snowman in Kitchener. Panik was a team-worst minus-5. The next worst was minus-3. Possible 2011 Lightning draft target right-handed defenseman Ryan Murphy just had an assist in the game. He has 10 goals and 28 points in 16 games so far this year for the Rangers and is now playing himself into the top of the first round it seems (and too high for the Lightning?).
Owen Sound Attack 0 @ Erie Otters 4
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 2 PIM
Schemitsch had 4 points in his last 2 games coming into the Erie game.
Moose Jaw Warriors 3 @ Regina Pats 1
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 15 GP, 6-6-12, -7, 32 PIM

Edmonton Oil Kings 3 @ Prince George Cougars 6
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-1-2, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 18 GP, 15-10-25, -2, 6 PIM
Connolly had gone his last 5 games without registering multiple points. This was his sixth multi-point game of the year.
