CHL Game Night: 3-11-10

QMJHL

PEI Rocket 1 @ Moncton Wildcats 3
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 63 GP, 15-43-58, +38, 70 PIM

Barberio has six points in his last six games after opening the game’s scoring with an unassisted goal. His goal tied his career high for goals in a season at 15, set last year in 66 games. His point total is 12 more than his previous career high, set two seasons ago in 70 games. Moncton, who is tied with Drummondville for the league’s second-best overall record behind St. John, will play Cape Breton in the first round of the playoffs.

OHL

Brampton Battalion 3 @ Barrie Colts 7
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-3-4, +4, 2 PIM (tripping), *First Star*
Season Totals: 66 GP, 46-33-79, +42, 56 PIM

This was Hutchings’ (pictured) seventh game this season in which he’s scored at least three points. He has five three-point games, one four-point game (last night), and a five-pointer. He moved into fourth in the league in plus/minus with the plus-4 night. Hutchings is within one assist of his previous career high in that category, set last season in 63 games. His goal total this year is 12 better than his previous best. Unofficially, this was his ninth First Star award of the season. Barrie has clinched the league’s best record and will play Niagara, Sudbury, or Oshawa in the first round.

Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Peterborough Petes 4
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (hooking), *Third Star*
Season Totals: 49 GP, 7-20-27, -5, 20 PIM
With Sudbury: 27 GP, 4-13-17, -10, 14 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Sointu earning the Wolves’ lone game star on the road is impressive, even if the result for Sudbury was not. The Wolves’ loss, combined with a Niagara shootout loss, means Niagara clinches a playoff spot and Sudbury and Oshawa are the lone teams in the league who haven’t clinched yet still with a chance at going to the postseason. Sudbury is in eighth, three points up on the Gens, with each team having two games remaining.

Season Totals: 60 GP, 14-42-56, +38, 64 PIM

Barberio had a rare minus game and saw his three-game point streak come to an end, but still got a Third Star on the road for his good play.

OHL

Sudbury Wolves 2 @ Niagara IceDogs 4
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

With Sudbury: 25 GP, 4-12-16, -10, 12 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

A big win for Niagara, who jumped Sudbury into seventh in the East, leaving the Wolves just one point ahead of Oshawa for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Kingston Frontenacs 2 @ Oshawa Generals 3 (OT)
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

The Gens are just one point behind Sudbury for the final playoff spot having swept their weekend home-and-home series with the Frontenacs. Zador did not play in either game.

WHL

D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, *First Star*
Season Totals: 59 GP, 14-42-56, +39, 64 PIM

A big, confidence-building win for the Wildcats over the CHL’s second-ranked team on the Sea Dog’s home ice. Moncton is ranked No.4 in the CHL. Barberio’s goal came in the first period on the power play to tie the game at two for Moncton. He has goals in two straight games and is one off his career high with five games left. He did not participate in the shootout.

With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Sointu (pictured) has six points in his last two games. The four points in a game were a career high for the young Finn. Panik scored for the second game in a row, but took a double-minor for spearing as the game ended.

Barrie Colts 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 64 GP, 45-29-74, +38, 54 PIM

A rare loss for the CHL’s top-ranked team from Barrie. Hutchings saw his point streak end at 12 games and his goal streak end at seven. He’s five goals short of 50 with four games remaining.

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

Season Totals: 61 GP, 24-26-50, -5, 100 PIM
With Regina: 33 GP, 11-13-24, +3, 48 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

The Pats get a win despite being out of the playoff race. Ashton’s goal, which came on the power play, was his first in eight games. He tied his career high for points in a season at 50, set in 70 games last year with the Hurricanes (30 goals).

Vancouver Giants 1 @ Kamloops Blazers 6
C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season Totals: 16 GP, 4-10-14, -1, 6 PIM

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 0
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM, 6 SOG
Season Totals: 58 GP, 13-42-55, +39, 64 PIM

Barberio scored what turned out to be the game winner less than five minutes into the first period. The ‘Cats would add another goal less than a minute later, then hold the Eagles off the scoresheet for the rest of the game. Moncton has won eight straight.

OHL

Barrie Colts 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 5 (OT)
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 62 GP, 44-30-74, +41, 52 PIM
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 45 GP, 7-15-22, -6, 16 PIM
With Sudbury: 23 GP, 4-8-12, -11, 10 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

Hutchings scored his 44th goal of the year at 2:45 of overtime to give the Colts the road win and extend his point streak to 11 games. He has goals in six straight. This was his 11th game winning goal of the season, tying him with Ottawa's Cody Lindsay (undrafted) for the league lead. Sointu’s two assists gave him his first multi-point game since January 31. Sointu finished February with no goals and three assists in 10 games. Hutchings had 10 goals and five assists in 12 February games.

WHL

Regina Pats 2 @ Swift Current Broncos 5
RW Carter Ashton, REG: Did not play.
Season Totals: 60 GP, 23-26-49, -5, 100 PIM
With Regina: 32 GP, 10-13-23, +3, 48 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

That’s two huge losses to the eighth-place Broncos in the last week for Regina, which drops them 11 points back of Swift Current with five games remaining. That means they’re officially done. No word yet as to why Ashton was scratched. If he’s healthy, there’s a good chance he joins AHL Norfolk when the Pats are finished with their season. I’d also expect (and look forward to seeing) Jordan Eberle join the Oilers.

CHL Game Night: 2-28-10

QMJHL

Halifax Mooseheads 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 7
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 57 GP, 12-42-54, +38, 54 PIM

If any win over your rival is a good win, then any weekend sweep of your rival ending with a blowout win is Christmas. While Barberio is eight points better than he has ever been in his QMJHL career, he’s three goals shy of his career high for goals, set last year in 66 games.

OHL

Windsor Spitfires 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 0
W Matias Sointu, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (holding, cross-checking)
Season Totals: 44 GP, 7-13-20, -6, 16 PIM
With Sudbury: 22 GP, 4-6-10, -11, 10 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

The Spits destroyed Sudbury 6-0, outshooting them 40-16. Likely 2010 first overall pick Taylor Hall only managed two assists in the game. Hall is now at 95 points (36 goals) for the season (54 games). The Wolves are tied for seventh in the East.

Oshawa Generals 4 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 7
G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 24 saves on 31 shots
Season Totals: 45 GP, 14-24-2-1, 4.07 GAA, .886 sv%, 2 SO

Oshawa is now the worst defensive team in the league with 270 goals against in 62 games. My calculator tells me that's 4.35 goals against per game, yet Zador’s GAA has just now topped the 4.00 mark. Despite their lack of defense, the Gens are just two points back of Niagara for the eighth spot in the East.

CHL Game Night: 2-27-10

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 56 GP, 12-40-52, +37, 54 PIM

Any win over your rival is a good win. In the game, Moncton goalie Nicola Riopel (Flyers 5/09) allowed his first goal in his last 179min 59sec played. It was the second longest shutout streak in the QMJHL history behind Mathieu Chouinard (Chicoutimi) in 97-98.

OHL

Niagara IceDogs 1 @ Barrie Colts 6
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 61 GP, 43-29-72, +41, 52 PIM

Already with a career high for goals and points, Hutchings is starting to flirt with the 50-goal plateau.

WHL

Regina Pats 3 @ Saskatoon Blades 0

Season Totals: 60 GP, 23-26-49, -5, 100 PIM
With Regina: 32 GP, 10-13-23, +3, 48 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Ashton hasn’t scored a goal in eight games. A day after losing an important road game to eighth-place Swift Current, the Pats shutout the conference’s top team (tied) in their own barn, holding them to 19 shots. Swift Current also won, however, so Regina remains a seemingly insurmountable nine points back of a playoff spot.

Vancouver Giants 3 @ Swift Current Broncos 5
C/W James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 15 GP, 4-10-14, -1, 4 PIM

D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 55 GP, 12-40-52, +38, 54 PIM

A rare night where Barberio doesn’t register a point, however, the team gets a solid win. They remain second in the Atlantic Division, 10 points behind powerhouse St. John.

OHL

Barrie Colts 2 @ Brampton Battalion 1
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM

Season Totals: 57 GP, 39-26-65, +36, 52 PIM

D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-3-3, +3, 0 PIM, 5 SOG

Barberio passed the 50-point mark for the first time in his career in a blowout win over Vincent Lecavalier's alma mater. Barberio improved his plus/minus to plus-37, third in the league among defensemen. His point total is good enough for sixth among QMJHL blueliners.
