11/14 Recap: Ennis, Myers produce; Genny flows in loss

Tyler Myers (+1) scored a goal and two assists as Kelowna fell to Vancouver, 5-3. All of Myers points came in a 9:00 span in the third period as the Rockets attempted a comeback. The 6'7 defenseman started the surge at the 5:15 mark when he poked a shot through a goal mouth scramble for his second of the year. He would follow with a pair assists, but the effort was too little too late in the loss to their division rival. Tyler Ennis repeated his performance from Wednesday, netting a late goal and then another in the shootout as Medicine Hat defeated Edmonton 3-2 at Rexall Place. The Tigers have won all twelve meetings over Edmonton since the Oil Kings joined the WHL. In QMJHL play, Paul Byron scored the lone Gatineau goal in their 4-1 loss to Shawinigan. The Olympiques (5-16-1-1) have now lost 13 straight games, and will look to end the madness against Montreal on Saturday afternoon. Luke Adam (5 SOG) and T.J. Brennan (1 SOG) were both pointless as Montreal edged PEI, 1-0. Rocket reargaurd Jordon Southorn, who was in consideration for the most recent Defensive Player of the Week award, had five shots on goal in the loss. J.S.

In the ECAC, Matt Generous (+1) scored an even strength goal and added an assist for #19 St. Lawrence in their 4-3 loss to Dartmouth. In the final minute of the second period, the Connecticut native pumped one home from the high slot to tie the game at two. Alex Biega had a power play assist as Harvard defeated #16 Clarkson, 5-1. The junior corralled a faceoff win and flicked a wrister to the net that was tipped by Nick Coskren for Harvard's second goal. Corey Tropp garnered an assist in #17 Michigan State's 5-1 loss to #10 Miami. The Spartans only goal came midway through the first when a scrum kicked a loose puck to an open Mike Schepke. Andrew Orpik was even as #5 Boston College played to a 5-5 tie with Merrimack. Drew MacKenzie was -1 as #15 Vermont dropped a 5-3 decision to #7 Northeastern. Justin Jokinen was scratched as his #11 Minnesota State Mavericks defeated #3 Colorado College, 2-1. Brad Eidsness replaced Aaron Walski midway through the second period in #18 North Dakota's 3-2 loss to Alaska-Anchorage.

In the OHL, Drew Schiestel (-2) returned to the lineup in Niagara's 4-3 OT loss to Kitchener. A point-shot deflected off Schistel's shin pads into the Dogs net to force overtime.
