Prince Albert Raiders 2 @ Prince George Cougars 3
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 2-1-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*

Montreal Junior 0 @ Rimouski Oceanic 4
W/C Luca Cunti, RIM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Cunti extended his points streak to six games with his second period power play assist. He was actually credited with two assists in the game before a late scoring change. Cunti was a focal point on the Oceanic power play, operating several dishes and give-and-go plays out of both corners down low. At this point in the season, he remains primarily a playmaker staying outside the high-traffic areas. He continues to be Rimouskiâ€™s points leader (tie) with seven.

(PG Citizen) Dana Tyrell believes he belongs at a higher level, but that's not going to keep him from doing the best he can at this one.
Tyrell, the captain of the Prince George Cougars, will see his first home action of the WHL season when the Chilliwack Bruins arrive for a doubleheader -- games Friday and Saturday at CN Centre. Tyrell, now a 19-year-old and the longest-tenured player on the team, was on the ice last weekend as the Cats lost in Vancouver but rebounded with an overtime victory in Chilliwack.
"I definitely feel I can play there, and I could've played there this year," said Tyrell, who had a lengthy stay at the main camp of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning.
