NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-30-14 Lightning at Stars

Young forwards making Yzerman/Cooper's decisions hard...

TB-5
DAL-1

Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory. You have to be happy with his first two preseason starts as he comes back from the wrist injury.

First Period
0:37 TB Panik (1), (Marchessault, Paquette)

Second Period
7:39 TB Brown (1), (unassisted)(SH)
14:05 TB Kucherov (1), (Namestnikov, Filppula)(PP)
14:50 DAL Benn (1), (Nichushkin, Gonchar)

Third Period
2:30 TB Paquette (1), (Connolly, Gudas)
7:04 TB Connolly (1), (Namestnikov)

Richard Panik, Brett Connolly, and Ben Bishop were the game's three stars.

None of the young forwards vying for the final 1-2 spots on the roster are playing themselves out of centention. Marchessault, Paquette, Namestnikov, and Kucherov all hit the scoresheet tonight (Namesy and Dump Truck with multi-point nights) and even Witkowski on the blueline is putting a shadow of doubt into the Lightning brass' minds right now.

There's lots of good problems to have for a Lightning team that managed to put 5 on the board (albeit on Anders Lindback) with Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman donning their tights and fighting crime on the mean streets of Estero tonight rather than donning their uniforms and taking to the ice in Dallas, to say nothing of wunderkind Drouin's broken digit. The depth right now, and that depth's ability to outplay an NHL-talent studded Dallas roster pretty handily is making the Lightning look like a potential juggernaut in the making. And, whichever 3-4 players finally don't make this roster, are probably going to instantly make Syracuse an Eastern Conference contender down in the AHL. Good times.

Juniors Game Night: 9-28-14

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Shawinigan Cataractes 3 @ Quebec Remparts 6

W/C Adam Erne, QUE: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 2 Hits, 6 SOG, 10/10 FO, *Second Star*
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne made his 2014-2015 debut for the Remparts and was second star for scoring a goal and adding a pair of helpers. His goal was unassisted and came shorthanded. Quebec went 2-3 in the five games Erne was with the Lightning prior to the NHL club reassigning him to juniors. Erne can play in the AHL next season if he doesn’t make the NHL, but is too young this year. He is expected to have a huge season in Quebec City as long as he can stay healthy. He was a center last year for Quebec, but was listed as a left wing on the official scoresheet on Sunday. He did take 10 faceoffs, however, which was third-most on the team. Erne was one of three players wearing alternate captain’s A’s on Sunday for Quebec. He was an alternate captain last year.

Ontario Hockey League

Guelph Storm 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 1

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

DiGiacinto did not play as he continues to serve a 5-game suspension received in Game 3 of last year’s playoffs vs London. DiGiacinto started a fight with London’s Gemel Smith as the two skated up the ice, which turned into a line brawl. London Coach and General Manager Mark Hunter compared the confrontation to the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident and the OHL agreed, giving DiGiacinto a 5-game ban for “bullying.” He is now three games into his 5-game timeout.

Western Hockey League

Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Calgary Hitmen 9

D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Season totals: 0-0-0, +1, 4 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Calgary put three field goals on the board as they crushed Lethbridge, 9-2, on Sunday. Fourteen of the 17 skaters Calgary dressed had at least a point in the game. Thomas was not one of them.
