  • Prospect playoff update:
  • Brett Flemming and the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors lost an odd and uncharacteristic game 6-5 in overtime to the Owen Sound Attack. When the dust settled, Brett's stats were 1-1-2, even, 0 PIM.  He was on-ice for 7 of the eleven goals scored (four of his team's five, 3 of Owen Sound's, but not the game winner.)  This was the second game in a back-to-back, and their series lead has been cut  to 2-1.
  • Cody Eakin and the Kootenay Ice also lost in overtime, 4-3, to the Portland Winterhawks. Cody went 0-2-2, plus-2, 2 PIM.  After a week-plus layoff, the Ice were sloppy in the first, and allowed all three regulation goals-against.  They regained their poise and shut down Portland in periods two and three.  Cody had the primary assist on the GTG but the 'Hawks scored on their first shot in OT.  Game Two is tonight.
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Lawrence Nycholat, and happy 55th birthday to Tony Cassolato.
