4/22 Recap: Ship assists; Oil Kings keep rolling

Written By Kris Baker on Monday, April 23, 2012 | 4/23/2012

In Sunday action, Steven Shipley snapped a seven-game point drought with an assist as Niagara couldn't overcome an early four-goal deficit en route to a 7-4 loss to Ottawa. While on a second period power play, the 6'3 Shipley (10 black) planted himself at the edge of the paint and nudged the puck to Dougie Hamilton, who ripped a shot to cut it to a 4-3 deficit. Sean Monahan ('13) had a goal and two assists for the 67's, while defenseman Cody Ceci ('12) added a goal and an assist. The clubs will travel to Ottawa and go right back at it Monday with the series locked at one game each.

In game #2 of the WHL Eastern Conference final, Mark Pysyk logged the usual big minutes but did not factor into the scoring as Edmonton rolled past Moose Jaw, 6-1. The Oil Kings, who defeated the Warriors by an identical score in Friday's opener, extend their winning streak to 21 games dating back to the end of the regular season. The series will shift to Moose Jaw for games three and four on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Kris, just a comment reguarding your poll,

I'd like to see Buffalo keep the 12th pick,
and then trade up using Nashville's pick and a 2nd rounder.

Example: Buffalo picking 12th and 16th.

And then, take 2 Forwards.

Find someone to replace Vanek.

Give Ennis and Hodgson some wingers to play with.

If they move anywhere, I'd say either up to the early picks, otherwise keep all I'd rather keep both 2nds then lose one for another mid first round pick.

Staying at 12 will not have any affect on next years lineup. Moving up to 4 or 5 probably wouldnt either for that matter.
