Wednesday night's highlights:
- Stars for Jung and Helenius
- Ward scores again
- Potential draft target Kyle Beach returns from an injury that one coach originally called "a charade."
Lethbridge Hurricanes 3 @ Chilliwack Bruins 2 (SO)
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM (roughing), *Second Star*
Fadden helped the â€˜Canes fight back from a 2-0 deficit with his 25th goal and a primary power play assist. Fadden also scored the shootout winner for Lethbridge. The Hurricanes are third in the Eastern Conference.
Prince Albert Raiders 2 @ Everett Silvertips 1
D Dane Crowley, EVT: 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM (roughing)
Everett is currently fifth in the Western Conference. Prince Albert is 20 points out of a playoff spot.
The Sea Wolves wasted no time putting the 0-3 road trip to Texas last weekend behind them as they scored 7 straight goals against Pensacola, hanging for an 8-5 victory Tuesday night. Marek Kvapil, fresh off a reassignment from Norfolk, earned Third Star honors as he poured in 2 goals and 2 assists. None of the other Lightning prospects assigned to Mississippi were in the lineup.
The Lightning now have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.
Johan Holmqvist allowed 4 goals on 26 shots including a couple of softies DQ would be envious of.

Buffalo 10:00, Drew Stafford 13 (Derek Roy, Toni Lydman)

The vultures are circling.
