Imagine how much hate Ovechkin would get from celebrating an empty net goal like that.

Herbert in the middle of two of the most bizarre goals you'll see. He knocked Maine's net off, UMD stopped playing and Maine promptly goes down and scores for a 2-0 lead. Then to tie it back up Herbert strips a Maine defenseman for a breakaway, his shot grazes the crossbar, banks off the back boards and then off the goalie and in.

Galiev had 1+4 in an 8-1 win in Game 2 as Saint John continued to steamroll Cape Breton.

NCAA regional finals on ESPNU: 5:30 is Minnesota/North Dakota and at 8 is Minnesota-Duluth/BC.

Nice timing for his first; he finished with 1g/1a in the game.



Herbert's comments about the crazy goal. link

Wey had a great weekend matched up against AFA's and UMD's top lines all weekend.
His team scored 2 PP goals and he assisted on both. He scored a goal and was +3 for the weekend. He was on for 5 of BC's 6 goals and had a hand in three. Earned All Tournament Honors for the Regional.

He and Boyd will meet in Tampa in two weeks.

I thought Wey could surely use another year at BC before going pro but now I'm not so sure. BC will likely lose Dumoulin & Kreider along with their seniors so it's likely to be something of a transition year. The biggest benefit next year would be an increased leadership role I guess but he may be ready for another level.

Minnesota should be a tougher test, perhaps the toughest under the circumstances. Compared to UMD they're playing at a higher pace, have better depth and their D are better at chipping in.

Where would Wey fit in on Hershey next year?

Miskovic and Collins are UFAs, and according to capgeek Marshall is an RFA (though I thought I read somewhere he was a UFA but I can't find it now). Brouillette will be a UFA as well, and I'm unsure of Wellar's contract status. There's potential for several spots to open, and I don't really anticipate Washington re-signing Miskovic (Collins is a maybe). Unsure of Hershey's priorities with regards to the veteran d-men, but Flemming is also knocking on the door.

Marshall - Kundratek
McNeill - Wey
X - Flemming

Something along those lines maybe. Marshall will be RFA coming off his ELC and will require waivers but I think he'd clear. Pretty young for a Hershey D I guess. Wellar is a decent 3LD fit. Stevenson could maybe be in that mix and obviously any college/depth signings otherwise.

With Wey a pairing above Flemming in that lineup, are you implying you think he's ready to be a better AHL player than Flemming at this point? I would have made the opposite assumption, but I haven't seen either of them play so that's pretty worthless anyway.

If he's assuming the right role, yes. More than anything I think he's just the better stylistic compliment to more of a finesse defenseman in McNeill. Flemming has a wider skill set but Wey's strengths are a little more clear-cut. That doesn't necessarily make Wey better just that it may be easier for him to find a role he can grow into (and one he'd assume in that pairing). Wey's playing hard minutes at BC and while certainly helped in being paired with a Hobey nominee in Dumoulin he's come along physically pretty nicely. I don't have quite the same concerns about his ability mentally and positionally to defend at a high pace.

Both Stanislav Galiev (Saint John Sea Dogs) and Samuel Carrier (Baie-Comeau Drakkar) are through to the QMJHL quarterfinals by way of 4-0 series wins. Unfortunately, looks like they will be playing each other. The Dogs are the top seed, while the Drakkar caused a huge upset over Victoriaville, so they are the lowest seed left.

In four games, Galiev scored 3 goals, had 9 assists, and was +13. Carrier has 1 goal, 2 assists, and even.

Yes, Saint John vs Baie Comeau in the next round of the Q playoffs. link

One of Carrier's assists was on the OT goal on the PP last night. Drakkar will be without Raphael Bussieres for the first 2 games (suspension).




I know several are posting about the NCAA tourney, but didn't see this posted so here's the schedule for the Frozen Four:

Thursday, April 5

4:30 pm Ferris State vs Union on ESPNU
8 pm Minnesota (Boyd, Larson) vs Boston College (Wey) on ESPN2

Finals are on Saturday, April 7, at 7pm on ESPN2

Galiev has a lot of upside down the road.

Can't wait to see him in Hershey next year.

Hopefully his game translates.

Rumor on eliteprospects that Soberg is changing teams within the Norwegian league from Manglerud to Vålerenga and says "confirmed with inside information". Looks like Vålerenga was just eliminated in the semi-finals.

Also, Manglerud was relegated (to division 1).

Nice piece on Wey by Whyno; more about the foot injury from earlier this season and no surprise, Steve Richmond keeping in touch

link


and a Q&A with Boyd in the Pioneer Press; here's a piece about Boyd's role at the moment with the Gophers from the Star Tribune last week that I don't think I posted when I read it. link

Man you look the other way for one second and my dream that Tarasenko and Kuznetsov would be both in the Gagarin cup has been smashed and looking like neither one will even make it.

Maybe this convinces him to come over?

Interesting news on NHL live Rangers 1st round pick is playing in the frozen four and if his team loses tonight rangers are expect to sign him to his entry level contract and play him sat and in the playoffs. And if his team wins tongiht and advances to the finals, the NHL regular season will have ended and he would not be albe to recieve a signing bonus or be paid for the playoffs. So the College games tonight could impact the caps playoffs if they make it.
