Sunday Scoreboard

For games scheduled on January 26, 2014.

AHL

Lake Erie falls to Toronto in a shoot-out 3-2. The Monsters started off the game strong, scoring both regulation goals in the opening period by Andrew Agozzino (10) and Cam Reid (2). Calvin Pickard is starting games in the absence of Sami Aittokallio, who was recalled to the Colorado Avalanche and was in net on Saturday night against Tampa.

Pickard kept the Marlies off the board until the 18:12 mark of the first period when Stuart Percy beat him for his first goal of the season. Pickard made 29 saves during regulation and overtime. 

Lake Erie came up empty handed on four shoot-out opportunities; whereas the Marlies capitalized twice. 

Box Score

OHL

Sudbury uses three third period goals to upend Barrie 4-2. Four different skaters scored for the Wolves. Joseph Blandisi assisted on a first period power play goal for the Colts. The Colts finished 1-7 with the man advantage. Blandisi was minus one for the game.

North Bay tops Peterborough 3-1. Michael Clarke had the lone goal for the Petes, his 15th of the season. After tying the game in the second period, the winning marker for the Battalion came with 54 seconds remaining in regulation.

Bigras Still Adjusting to his Return to OHL

The Colorado Avalanche prospect found his playing time drastically reduced once Edmonton Oil Kings' defenceman Griffen Reinhart returned from a four-game suspension.

Canada went on to finish fourth for a second consecutive year.

"It was a little different to sit on the bench a little more and watch the game," said Bigras.

"It was a good learning experience overall. You can use this experienced going forward be it next year in this same tournament (which is being held in Toronto and Montreal) or where ever it takes me."

Blandisi Traded from Ottawa to Barrie

“The future (with the 67’s) is not this year, but this is going to be a very good team next year and an even better team the year after,” Blandisi said Wednesday morning while racing to get his gear packed and get on his way to Barrie.

“Colorado wants me playing deep in the playoffs and I would like to sign a contract, so I think my chances of showcasing my talents are better if I am playing (deep) in the playoffs. We had been talking about (a deal) for a little while, so while I am a little sad to leave, I see it as a great opportunity.”
