For the second straight night, J.S. Allard set-up Mikhail Stefanovich for a game winning goal in the third period as Quebec downed Chicouitimi, 3-2. Jacob Lagacé had two shots on goal for the Sags in defeat, ending his four-game point streak. Jordon Southorn (-1) picked up another assist as PEI lost to Cape Breton, 4-2. The 6'2 defender now has points in three straight games, and his total of 29 ranks him ninth in Q defensive scoring. Luke Adam had an assist, four blocks, and won seven of 11 draws, while T.J. Brennan was +1 in Montreal's 4-1 win over Victoriaville. Adam has 15 goals and 16 assists in 31 games, and was a strong second half player last season in St. John's. In the OHL, Nick Crawford was +2 as Saginaw clobbered Sault Ste. Marie, 8-3. The Sabres sixth rounder in 2008 has two goals and 21 points this season for the Spirit. In the Great Lakes Invitational final, Corey Tropp finished -2 as Michigan State ran out of gas against Michigan, 5-1. In the consolation game, Brad Eidsness made 18 saves as North Dakota lost to Michigan Tech, 2-1. It's not easy to hang anything on goaltending when there is a lack of goal support in front of him. Corey Fienhage was again a scratch for the Sioux. Playing for third place at the Badger Showdown, Alex Biega was -2 as Harvard fell to Alabama-Huntsville, 4-1. Philip Gogulla (-1) had a primary assist in Cologne's 4-3 loss to Straubing. Gogulla found a wide open Alexej Dmitriev in front of the net for a first period goal to give the Sharks an early 2-0 lead. Dennis Persson again suited up but did not see any ice in Timra's 1-1 tie with Linkoping.
