Thunder Bay NorWesters
Weekly Preview: The dog days of February – out of contention and trying to decide who stays and who goes.
Home games vs Columbus and Bucks County
Columbus Brew Jackets @ Thunder Bay NorWesters Noesen scores two in the first period (3 & 3) but after that Columbus never presses and Thunder Bay climbs back into the game. Landeskog (22) scores in the 2nd followed by Coyle (4) to tie the game 2-2 after 40 minutes. The 3rd was a comedy of error as both teams tried not to loose by they also forgot to play offense. Regulation ends 2-2 and we are headed to OT. at 1:38 Gus Nyquist (11) scores the winner. Thunder Bay 3 Columbus 2
Bucks County Raccoons @ Thunder Bay NorWesters Conner McDavid scores early to give Bucks a lead. Athanasiou scores his 11th to tie the game at the end of the 1st period. Bucks County Suter scores to push the visitors ahead but Gabe Landeskog (23) rallies the Nor’Westers back into a 2-2 tie after two. The 3rd period is all Bucks County with 3 unanswered goals Johansson(5), Evander Kane(20) and Sheahan(10). Bucks County 5 Thunder Bay 2
Weekly Summary: We have hung around 500 all season but can never seem to get the jump start needed to put a winning streak together. Young players are showing promise but inconsistent play in goal and at times a sketchy defense continues to plague the season.
Brentwood Bandits
Weekly Preview: Bandits are in 1st place but having played one more game than Jagr, who comes to town for the hottest ticket of the week. Oh yeah, we play Thunder Bay too. 😉
Jagr Mullets @ Brentwood Bandits Big brotherly matchup!

Jagr gets on the board first with Kadri lighting the lamp with his 23rd of the season. 1-0 Jagr

Eberle ties it up with his 16th of the campaign. 1-1

Kadre gets it back for Jagr a little over a minute later for his 2nd of the game and 24th of the season. 2-1 Jagr leads.

2nd period…

Lars Eller buries a rebound for his 12th of the season. Tie game 2-2.

Former Bandit Ron Hainsey scores a rare goal (2) AND it was a shorty! Jagr back on top 3-2.

3rd period…
Remains scoreless until 15:01 when Backes (9) ties it up again 3-3.

45 seconds later Hornqvist gets his 20th on the PP. 4-3 Bandits lead.

And that’s our final. 4-3 Bandits win!

Brentwood continues their “shoot the damn puck!” offense and it’s still working… as they fire 51 shots at former Bandit John Gibson. Former Mullet Vasilevskiy doesn’t have a stellar game, but makes the saves when it counted for his 27th win.

Bandits 1-5 on the PP and Jagr 0-1 with the man advantage. Good job not taking penalties for the Bandits. Another part of their strategy that is working.

Star 1 – Kadri 2G
Star 2 – Backes 1G, 1A
Star 3 – Eller 1G, 1A

Notables
JAG – Gibson 47 saves
BWB – Tavares 18 faceoffs won

Thunder Bay NorWesters @ Brentwood Bandits Thunder Bay rolls in loudly as they take the lead in the 1st on a Landeskog (22) goal. 1-0 Thunder Bay.

This is where things get weird…

Every goal scored the rest of the game, except for one (even strength), is scored on the PP.

Thunder Bay gets a PP goal from Couturier (17) and an even strength from Slavin (5).

Bandits go on to score 6 PP goals on 10 chances!

Final score Brentwood 6, Thunder Bay 3.

Star 1 Kerfoot 2G
Star 2 Niederreiter 2G
Star 3 Landeskog 1G, 2A

Notables
TBN – Reimer 34 saves, O’Reilly 15 faceoffs won
BWB – Tavares 18 faceoffs won, Horvat 17 faceoffs won

Weekly Summary: Big win against division (and sibling) rivalry, Jagr… and we add another win against Thunder Bay to come away with 4 points at home this week.

Gonna be fun down the stretch here!

Yellowknife Braves
Weekly Preview: Yellowknife welcomes to playoff hungry teams in Cinci and Jagr
Cincinnati Inferno @ Yellowknife Braves Cinci scores the first 3 goals of the game. The Braves chip away, chip away, chip away and end up tying the game at 4 sending it to OT. Sebastian Aho scores in OT for the braves.
Yellowknife 5 Cincinnati 4

Jagr Mullets
Weekly Preview: A pair of home games for the suddenly struggling Mullets. Can they get the flow back?
Bucks County Raccoons @ Jagr Mullets Things look good halfway through the game for the Mullets, as they collect goals from Galchenyuk (19) and Parise (1) to go up 2-0. But then the Raccoons get a pair of goals shortly thereafter to knot it up 2-2. With their recent woes, the Mullets are a bit dazed and confused.

After a locker room trashing “pep talk” between periods, the Mullets respond with shock and awe. Jagr pots SIX goals in the 3rd, starting off with Taylor Hall’s 27th just 52 seconds in.

The Mullets cruise to an 8-2 blowout victory – has the sleeping giant been awakened?

California Regulators @ Jagr Mullets First place California comes to town – can the Mullets keep pouring on the heat?

Just 21 seconds in, Spurgeon (6) scores on an unassisted breakaway for the Regulators.

At 7:50, Huberdeau (18) also scores off the rush, putting the Mullets down 2-0.

But that’s all that California would score, as the Mullets respond with 5 unanswered goals to give John Gibson his 23rd victory in net.

Weekly Summary: Two big home wins and a 13-4 goals differential show that talk of the Mullet demise is very, very premature.
LA Great Danes
Weekly Preview: The Great Danes with a 3-game homestand – Gilbert, Chicago, and Wausau come to town.
Gilbert Sharks @ LA Great Danes The Danes pounce on Gilbert early and take a 3-0 lead into the first intermision on goals by Schenn, Ehlers, and Pietrangelo. In the second, Gilbert scores in the first and last minutes of the period, with the goals coming from Panarin and Henrique, but in between Schenn scores his 2nd of the game, and LA leads 4-2 after 2. Hoffman’s early 3rd period goal puts LA up 5-2, and that’s the way it ends.

The Danes play a very physical game, outhitting the Sharks 33-15 for the game but also give the Sharks 6 power plays. The Danes kill off 5 of 6 PP’s and score on their only 2 PP chances to win the special teams battle. A 3-point night for Brayden Schenn with 2G-1A.

Chicago Cosa Nostra @ LA Great Danes The teams trade odd-man chances early in the first and then trade goals, with DeBrincat opening the scoring for Chicago and Janmark knotting the score in the period’s final minute, 1-1 after 1. No scoring in the second, but then it’s SUBSTITUTION/MASS CONFUSION, with the Danes getting caught with too many men on the ice in the 2nd period’s last minute. Chris Kreider’s goal 1:16 into the third on the carryover power play puts Chicago up 2-1. The Danes press late in the 3rd, but Bernier stands tall, including 2 big saves in the game’s last 10 seconds, and Chicago comes away with the 2-1 road win. Bernier is the game’s #1 star with 38 saves. The too many men penalty turns out to be the difference, bringing back some bad memories for Don Cherry.
Guentzel Gunners @ LA Great Danes The Wausau Guentzel Gunners come to town on a roll and looking like a playoff team, while the Danes hover near the .500 mark. The first shot of the game 1:05 in goes in the net – Dumba beats Andersen and it’s 1-0 Gunners. But a Scheifele PPG makes it 1-1 after 1. The only goal of the 2nd comes late by D Jonas Brodin, and LA holds a 2-1 advantage heading into the 3rd. The Danes 4th liners come through in the 3rd with Fischer and Lehkonen scoring to nail down the 4-1 win for LA.
Weekly Summary: It was a solid week at home with two wins by a 3-goal margin and a close one-goal loss. Frederick Andersen had an outstanding week in net, with 5 GA total in the 3 games. After a horrid December with a 2-9-2 record, the Great Danes have been playing pretty well, with an 11-8-0 record in 2019. Next week, the Danes begin a long stretch of division games against the Pacific Division, so the Danes actually still have a shot at making the playoffs in the weaker western conference, although they are facing some lost time from some key players down the stretch.
Alamo Defenders
Weekly Preview: Alamo plays host to Guentzel and Brentwood.
Guentzel Gunners @ Alamo Defenders In the 1st period, 3 goals are scored. Seguin and Ekblad score for Alamo. Kopitar scores for the Gunners. Then, the Gunners score the remaining goals as they score 4 unanswered goals. Frolik scores on a short-handed. Gourde, Guentzel, and Hudon score the remaining goals.

Guentzel 5 Alamo 2

1st – Luongo 43 saves – wow
2nd – Frolik 1 goal
3rd – Gourde 1 goal

Brentwood Bandits @ Alamo Defenders The juggernaut Bandits invade Alamo. This was a good close game.

No goals in the 1st.

In the second, Ryan scores his seventh goal for Brentwood. Later in the 2nd, Wheeler scores his 16th goal for the Defenders.

We go to OT, and Vlasic, former Alamo Defender scores the game winner.

Brentwood 2 Alamo 1 (OT)

1st – Vasilevsky
2nd – Ryan
3rd – Vlasic

Weekly Summary: Alamo gets soundly beaten by Guentzel, but rebounds to take 1 point against Brentwood.
Cincinnati Inferno
Weekly Preview: The Cincinnati Inferno enter the week as the third place team in the Atlantic Division. Looking to establish itself as one of the Stanley Cup contenders this week, the club has a shot against two division leaders in Yellowknife (on the road) and California and another contest at The Incinerator against Long Beach.
California Regulators @ Cincinnati Inferno California opened the scoring 6:41 into the first when Jonathon Huberdeau picked up his 18th goal collecting the second rebound of a shot sequence and putting it past Corey Crawford. Cincinnati would tie things up at 14:41 when Sidney Crosby deposited his 15th goal of the season glove-side high past former Inferno netminder Sergei Bobrovsky.

In the second, the Regulators scored both goals off the stick of Jeff Skinner, his 12th and 13th of the year.

In the third, Cincinnati got to within one at 5:07 when Wayne Simmonds picked up his 12th goal beating Bobrovsky again to the glove side. Eri Staal put the game away for the Regulators with an empty net goal with 1:42 to go.

Cincinnati won the shots battle, 38-20. The Inferno also held the edge in hits, 16-13, blocks, nine to four and chances, 15-4. Bobrovsky was solid in net, stopping 36 shots–while Crawford turned away 16 in the defeat.

Long Beach Ice Dogs @ Cincinnati Inferno It took nearly 39 minutes, but there was scoring in this contest.

Brayden Point netted the first goal at 18:38 of the middle frame, a shorthanded tally and his 15th of the year. Point tipped in John Carlson’s shot from the blueline. Through two periods, the shots favored the Inferno, 30-14.

The lead extended to 2-0 at 7:50 of the third, when Brock Boeser (21) deflected in a Carlson shot on the power play. Brock McGinn’s (3) breakaway goal off a turnover less than two minutes later ballooned the lead to 3-0. David Perron’s goal (12) at 13:11 on a wraparound sealed the win.

Brendan Gallagher’s 17th goal with 1:04 to go ended the shutout bid. The Inferno held the edge in most categories including shots (39-26), faceoffs won (39-26), blocks (14-6) and chances (21-7). Cincinnati was one-for-four with the man-advantage, while Long Beach was zero-for-two on the power play.

Semyon Varlamov stood out in goal, stopping 35 shots, while Corey Crawford re-routed 25 shots.

Weekly Summary: Another disappointing split at home keeps Cincinnati on the outside looking in for the postseason. Next week’s games should decide whether the club will explore moving pieces like Sidney Crosby to other teams with playoff aspirations.
Bucks County Raccoons
Weekly Preview: A challenging week as two teams in the upper half in the league offensively in Clearfield and Bathgate visit the Rats nest….
Clearfield Bison @ Bucks County Raccoons A tight checking affair is decided in the 3rd period when Palmeri notches the Bison 2nd PP goal of the game for a 2-1 victory. Clearfield was 2 for 5 with the man advantage for the game, compared to 2 PP opportunities for the Raccoons.
Bathgate Rangers @ Bucks County Raccoons Bucks County rallied twice from behind with Duncan Keith tying the score at 4 with 4:24 left in the third period on a soft goal from the blue line, and the Raccoons won the shoot out 2-0 to come away with the 5-4 victory. Bathgate received the participation point for attending…..
Weekly Summary: A win and a loss keeps the Raccoons on the treadmill of mediocrity……
Bathgate Rangers
Weekly Preview: Two games this week both against top team. Brentwood in our division and Yellowknife for the Central.
Brentwood Bandits @ Bathgate Rangers Rangers sure know how not to start a home stand. Blanked in this one as Vasilevskiy stops all 42 shots!! Bandits then score a goal in each period – Krug, Eller and Tavares for the 3-0 win.
STARS (all BWB)
1. Vasilevskiy 42 saves
2. Krug 1 goal, 1 assist
3. Tavares 1 goal
Yellowknife Braves @ Bathgate Rangers Rangers come back in this one and score a goal – Shaw, late 3rd period goal. But unfortunately all that did was spoil a shutout for Miller. He was VERY well supported in this one as Colin Miller, Malkin (PP) and Kuznetsov score in the 1st. Monahan and Malkin score in the 2nd and Monahan scores again in the 3rd for a commanding 6-1 victory.
STARS (all YEL)
1. Malkin 2 goals, 2 assists
2. Monahan 2 goals, 1 assist
3. Miller 42 saves – seems like that is a magic number of saves against the Rangers – need more shots as that is all anyone can stop!!
Weekly Summary: 2 games, 2 resounding defeats…..
Columbus Brew Jackets
Weekly Preview: Jackets host familial rival Bathgate and then the team from Alamo for this weeks games. Jackets have been having problems scoring of late and hope to rectify that issue – quickly!
Bathgate Rangers @ Columbus Brew Jackets This one turns into a LOW scoring event with 1 goal entering a net in each period. Proporov got it started 2 minutes into the 1st when Klingberg slides one over to him and he slaps it home. In the 2nd Calvert gets an early PP goal when he knocks one in from in front late in the period. 1-1 going to the 3rd. 8 and a half in Buchnevich gets it for Bathgate, passes to Wood, he shoots and beats Bishop high on his stick side for a 2-1 lead. Bishop leaves for the last minute plus, but the Brew Jackets continue their goal drought and lose 2-1. Columbus led in shots 36-22, FO 63% Scoring Chances 18-8.
STARS:
1. BGR: Halak 35 saves
2. BGR: Wood 1 goal
3. BGR: Provorov 1 goal
Alamo Defenders @ Columbus Brew Jackets This was definitely the type of game the Nationwide fans have come to love – Brew Jackets popping the Beer Cans 10 TIMES. 4 in the 1st, Miller, Couture, Hayes, Kucherov; 1 in the 2nd Benn; and 5 in the 3rd – Johnson, Noesen, Couture, Noesen, and Kempe. 1 PP, 1 SH goal in the mix. Nordstrom finished the scoring in the 1st with a goal for Alamo and McAvoy notched one in the 3rd PP, but that was all they could muster with their 35 shots.
STARS (all CBJ)
1. Couture 2 goals, 1 assist
2. Noesen 2 goals
3. Miller 1 goal, 2 assists
Weekly Summary: 1-1 – and hopefully the last game is an indicator that their offense is back – then again, it might not be.
Lafayette Homesteaders
Weekly Preview: Lafayette takes on Toledo and New Jersey. Slumping as of late they hope to show some offensive power
Toledo Walleye @ Lafayette Homesteaders The Homesteaders pull one out in OT 2-1. Game winning goal by Duchesne and a stellar preformance by Jones and his 41 saves.
New Jersey Grizzlies @ Lafayette Homesteaders Lafayette behind Neuvirth (13-1-1) win 4-2. Forsberg has a 3 point game
Weekly Summary: Surprising play by both goalies steal 4 points for the week. Homesteaders are still on the outside looking in for the playoffs but fight to stay over .500
Toledo Walleye
Weekly Preview: Toledo (30-25-2) hosts 2 of the Atlantic Division powerhouse teams New Jersey (35-20-4) and Cincinnati (34-20-3). Should be a good test for the surging Walleye.
New Jersey Grizzlies @ Toledo Walleye Toledo 5, New Jersey 1 – Apparently Tyson Barrie ate his Wheaties prior to this game, as he has an all-star performance, scoring 3 goals in the first period. The Griz must have had fruit loops and cannot muster an answering goal as the first period ends 3-0 Walleye.

The Walleye are able to keep the pressure up in the 2nd with a Foligno goal in the first 3 minutes. The defense does the rest of the talking and the 2nd period ends with New Jersey having taken only 11 SOG for the game against the 31 by the Walleye. 4-0 Walleye.

New Jersey finally gets some time in the offensive zone in the 3rd period, resulting in 15 SOG, but McElhiney is able to stop all but one of them as Pulock is able to avoid the shutout. Foligno counters with one more for the Walleye and the game ends 5-1

1st star – Barrie – hat trick
2nd star – Foligno 2g
3rd star – McElhiney 25 saves

Cincinnati Inferno @ Toledo Walleye Inferno 3, Walleye 2 – Outstanding tussle between 2 evenly matched teams. Inferno draw first blood on a Zucker goal 8 minutes into the game. Toledo answers with a MacDonald rocket just before the period ends. Tied 1-1 end of the 1st.

Both teams play tight defense in the 2nd, which resulted in only one goal, this time Toffoli for the Inferno to give them the advantage 2-1 going to the 3rd period.

Toledo answers right off the face-off with van Riemsdyk scoring just 15 seconds into the 3rd period, tying the game at 2. Both teams with a number of chances as the period progresses, but its Tkachuk with a missle at the 12 minute mark to break the tie. Walleye crank up the pressure the final 8 minutes, but Hutton stands tall in goal, ending up with 38 saves and the win.

1st star – Hutton 38 saves
2nd star – Tkachuk 1g
3rd star – Toffoli 1g

Weekly Summary: Splitting with 2 likely playoff teams is not the end of the world. Barrie back in form after his mid season ‘injury’ records a hat trick.

Player of the week, Tyson Barrie with 3 goals and 1 assist.

Charlotte Buzzards
Weekly Preview: With golf season looming, the Charlotte Buzzards host three games, intra-division contests versus western foes Alamo, LA and Chicago.
Alamo Defenders @ Charlotte Buzzards Anti Raanta stops 25 shots and only lets in one as the Buzzards strike down the Alamo 4-1. Charlotte overcomes an early Blake Wheeler goal with four unanswered tallies of its own from Joe Pavelski, Vince Trocheck, Jon Marchessault and Anders Lee. For Lee, who put the game on ice, it was his team-leading 31st goal as he remains atop the league’s scoring charts.
LA Great Danes @ Charlotte Buzzards Trocheck shines again for Charlotte with a goal and 2 assists as the Buzzards garner a consecutive home win over the Great Danes, 3-2. Trocheck’s power play score with 6:30 remaining proves to be the game winner and Raanta (28 saves) shuts down LA the rest of the way.
Chicago Cosa Nostra @ Charlotte Buzzards Marchessault has a hand in all of Charlotte’s scoring as the Buzzards down the Costra Nostra, 3-2. Marchessault, who earned first-star honors, scored the first goal two minutes in, then assisted on consecutive tallies from Ryan Dzingel and Craig Smith that broke a 1-1 tie. Jonathan Toews brought the Costra Nostra within one, but the goal came with just 51 seconds to play — too little, too late as it turned out. Chicago’s other goal came 5:45 in the first period came courtesy of Josh Bailey (unassisted).
Weekly Summary: Wow — Charlotte grabs all six potential points, all in regulation, as both Raanta and King Henrik, who starred in the Chicago win, shine in the nets. This is the Buzzards’ hottest home streak of the year: where was this earlier in the season? Look for the surging squad to relish the role of spoiler the last two months of play.

Clearfield Bison
Weekly Preview: visitors from the central division this week with 1st place yellowknife and 3rd place toledo
