CHL Game Night: 9/29

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 1 @ Vancouver Giants 5
RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -6, 10 PIM

This was supposed to be a match-up of Lightning prospects James Wright and Ashton, but Wright went and made the Lightning, leaving the Giants in a quandary. Vancouver made a trade earlier Tuesday, acquiring Cass Mappin (undrafted) to help replace Wright. Mappin had an assist vs. Lethbridge. It doesn’t look as though Vancouver needs the help, though – Lethbridge does. The ‘Canes remain the lone WHL team without a win (0-5). They’ll look for that first one again tonight (Wednesday) in Kamloops. Vancouver is 4-1-0-1.

According to Gregg Drinnan of the Kamloops Daily News, the Lethbridge-Vancouver game featured 175 penalty minutes and the refs had their hands full with one line brawl and several post-whistle scrums.

Gotovets Update

Lightning prospect defenseman Kirill Gotovets and Shattuck St. Mary's got their season underway this past weekend, going 3-0. The Sabres defeated Team Northeast, 7-3, Team Southwest, 8-3, and Team Wisconsin, 5-3. Gotovets, a Cornell commit, did not register a point. He had eight minutes in penalties (cross-checking, roughing-2, elbowing). Gotovets was a seventh round pick of the Bolts this past summer.

KHL Game Day: 9/28

Vasily Koshechkin allowed 3 goals on 24 shots as Togliatti fell to Nizhnekamsk 4-2. Former NHLer Denis Arkhipov added an empty netter for Nizhnekamsk with 1 second left in the match.

Johan Harju assisted on a Linus Omark goal as Dynamo Moscow defeated Spartak Moscow 5-1. The helper was just Harju's second point of the season.

NHL Preseason Game Day: 9/27 Lightning at Thrashers

That, boys and girls, is what a clinic looks like.

TB-5
ATL-1

Mike Smith allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the win.

First Period
TB 12:11, Konopka 1 (Ranger)
TB 13:08, Stamkos 1 (St. Louis, Lecavalier)(PP)

Second Period
TB 2:23, St. Louis 1 (Stamkos, Lecavalier)(PP)
ATL 5:40, Thorburn 1 (Salmela, Slater)

Third Period
TB 7:08, Ohlund 1 (Lecavalier, Tanguay)
TB 12:20, Stamkos 2 (Malone, St. Louis) (PP)

If that was a preview of the regular season, then I'd say that's a pretty resounding statement the Lightning just issued. The Lightning had 3 power play goals and were 3/7 overall with the man advantage. There's no reason for this club not to be top-10 in the league with the man advantage, and it's hard to miss the playoffs when you're that good with the extra man.

Paul Ranger's shoulder must feel ok after playing a team high 22:19. Pretty fascinating ice time distribution in this game among the defensemen with only Ranger going over 20 minutes.

Final cuts are due by Wednesday. Tuesday at noon would be the deadline for the Lightning to place any eligible player who needs to go through waivers on the wire before sending them down to Norfolk.

Steve Downie was -1 with 6 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 10:31.

Drew Miller was scoreless in 13:39.

Zenon Konopka had a goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes and 3 shots on goal in 11:37.

James Wright had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 13:32.

Victor Hedman was +1 with 2 blocked shots in 19:49.

CHL Game Night: 9/27

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 3 @ St. John Sea Dogs 4 (SO)
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
Season totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, +1, 2 PIM

A bit of a slow start statistically for Barberio, who started and finished strong last year around a mid-season slump.

OHL

Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 2
RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: Did not play.
Season totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 6 PIM
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 4 GP, 1-2-3, +3, 2 PIM

Sointu scored his first OHL goal late in the third, but it wasn’t enough to keep the red-hot and conference-leading Greyhounds from winning their fifth straight to start the season. Kyle DeCoste did not play for the Soo. It’s possible he was suspended for his match penalty in the previous game.

Sudbury Wolves 4 @ Oshawa Generals 3 (OTO
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-1, 5.50 GAA, .842 sv%, 0 SO

After getting pulled in his previous outing, Zador watched from the bench as his back-up, Kevin Ballie, stopped 24 of 28 shots.
