12/6 Recap: Lagacé cools off

Jacob Lagacé saw his 11-game point streak snapped on Sunday as Chicoutimi was blanked by Victoriaville, 3-0. The streak, which began on November 1st in Lagacé's first game back from a head injury, saw the forward accumulate 24 points (12+12) to vault into the top-five of the QMJHL scoring race.

Also from the QMJHL, Luke Adam scored his 21st goal of the year in Cape Breton's 5-4 loss to division rival Moncton. Adam, who finished the game a season-low -3, earned his first major penalty of the season after taking on 6'0, 175-pound Ted Stephens late in the opening period.

Maxime Legault notched a pair of second period assists as Shawinigan scored four unanswered goals to beat Drummondville, 6-4.

In the OHL, Marcus Foligno was +2 as Sudbury downed Brampton, 3-1. Former Buffalo Jr. Sabre and 2010 eligible Phil Lane (Rochester, NY) scored his 7th goal of the season for the Battalion.

In Hockey East, Drew MacKenzie earned an assist as Vermont dropped a home-ice decision to New Hammpshire, 5-2. The sophomore blueliner was on the ice for three of the five goals against.

I haven't watched or listened to any Portland games yet this year, but I can't help but notice Weber leading the team in +/- by far, a noticeable stat he had his rookie season. Is he starting to look like he's ready?

Weber needs to remain consistent. +/- is a good stat to see from him, but full-time readiness won't be achieved until he eliminates some of the poor puck plays in his own end. Weber's mark is made when he's physical, makes a good first pass, and uses the boards. I'm not worried about him joining the transition game. I just want less risk when he has it on his stick. He's a good player who can be used as needed, but some of the recent cross-ice giveaways will get cashed in the bigs every time. Remove them and you have a player knocking at the door.
