Quick Hits From Day 3 the 2010 NHL Prospects Tournament
Just a quickie tonight....I'll have a full summary of Rangers-Wild and Blues-Wings (plus snippets from Lightning-Stars and Hurricanes-Blue Jackets) tomorrow morning. For now, here's today's scores from Centre ICE (all scores final and were completed in regulation, no OT controversies today):
Tampa Bay 3, Dallas 1
Minnesota 5, New York 4
Carolina 8, Columbus 1
Detroit 2, St. Louis 1
So with today's games in the books, here is the game schedule for tomorrow:
7th place game: Columbus (0-3-0) vs. St. Louis (1-2-0), 2:00 EDT @ David's Rink
5th place game: New York (1-2-0) vs. Dallas (1-2-0), 2:30 @ Huntington Bank Rink
3rd place game: Carolina (2-1-0) vs. Tampa Bay, 5:30 @ David's Rink
Championship game: Minnesota (3-0-0) vs. Detroit (2-0-1), 6:00 @ Huntington Rink
Per my usual schedule, I'll be due to call both games from the Huntington Rink. I typically end up missing to the chance to see one team play a full game, and as a result of the standings following round robin play, this year's team is the 'Canes (much to my chagrin). Oh well, them's the breaks.
So Carolina will not get the chance to repeat as tourney champ, and Detroit attempts to capture the crown of its own tourney for the first time in the 13 year history of this event.
More to come....please stay tuned.
