    • Flemming is getting some pixel love these days. [THN]
    • The St. Mike's victory means that the Majors move to 1-1 in the standings.
    • It also means that Kootenay falls to 0-2 in the series and faces possible elimination after the next game.  Cue the "Eakin on the verge" stories. [The Pipeline Show]
    • Eakin scored a single goal last night, thereby providing Kootenay wth one hundred percent of its offense for the tournament to-date. And, according to some observers, one hundred percent of just about everything else.  His play earned him the second star of the game. [The Hockey Writers]
    • Question: Why was this game as close as it was? Answer: Probably Cody Eakin. [Buzzing the Net]
    • Tonight's game features Stan Galiev and the Saint John Sea Dogs versus the Owen Sound Attack in the Battle of the Unbeatens at 7pm.  NHL Net is recording the game for re-broadcast on Tuesday.
