Barzal has 10-Point Week for Seattle

Mathew Barzal had an enormous week for the Seattle Thunderbirds; scoring 10 points (4G, 6A) in four games, helping the T-Birds go 3-1. 

Barzal posted three straight multi-point games, scoring a goal and an assist in a 7-4 loss to the Kelowna Rockets on Feb. 8, before netting a hat trick – part of a four-point night – in a 6-0 win over Kelowna the next day. Barzal’s hat trick was the first of his junior hockey career. 

The Islanders’ 2015 first-rounder had three assists in a 6-5 OT win over the Portland Winterhawks, including the primary helper on the game-tying goal in the third period. Barzal finished his week by setting up the game-winning goal in a 4-2 win over the Victoria Royals. 

The Coquitlam, BC native has set career highs in goals (18), assists (49) and points (67) this season. Through 44 games, Barzal has scored 10 more points than he did in 44 games last season. 

Barzal is tied for 10th in WHL scoring and is third in the league with 49 assists. The Thunderbirds are second in the US Division of the WHL’s Western Conference with a 31-22-3 record and 65 points.

Toews Tallies Four Points in Two Games

Devon Toews scored the overtime winner as No. 1 Quinnipiac edged No. 20 Clarkson 3-2 on Saturday, Feb. 13. Toews, the Islanders 2014 fourth-round pick, also set up the game-tying goal in the comeback win. In total, the Quinnipiac defenseman had four points (1G, 3A) in two games last week for the Bobcats. Toews has six goals and 18 assists in 27 games this season and is fifth in team scoring. 

Seven A Lucky Number for Sound Tigers

Bridgeport: 27-19-3-1, (58 points), 5th in Atlantic Division, 7th in Eastern Conference

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers took five-of-six points last week, going 2-0-1, extending their point streak to nine games. 

The Sound Tigers scored seven goals in back-to-back wins, edging the Hershey Bears 7-6 in a shootout on Feb. 10 and downing the Hartford Wolf Pack 7-3 on Feb. 13. Andrew Rowe scored the game-tying goal with 1:37 to play in regulation, as the Sound Tigers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period, forcing a shootout. Rowe played the hero, scoring the shootout winner.

Rowe was also a gamebreaker against Hartford, scoring a hat trick – part of a four-point night – in the 7-3 win. Taylor Beck also had a four-point night, scoring a goal with three assists. Alan Quine also had a three-point night (1G, 2A). 

Bridgeport’s eight-game winning streak was snapped on Valentine’s Day, as the Sound Tigers let a 2-0 lead slip away in the third period, ultimately losing in overtime. The OT loss extended the Sound Tigers’ point streak to nine games (8-0-1).

Missouri: 38-6-2-1, (79 points), 1st in Central Division, 1st in Western Conference, 1st in the ECHL

The Missouri Mavericks won three of four games last week, sweeping a three-game set against the Indy Fuel in the process. The Mavericks dropped a 4-2 decision to the South Carolina Stingrays on Tuesday, Feb. 9, but responded with three straight wins over Indy. 

The wins didn’t come easy for the ECHL’s top team, as all three games were decided by one goal. Missouri won 4-3 on Friday, 5-4 on Saturday and 3-2 on Sunday. Matt Fin scored the game-winner with 4:57 to play on Friday, Ross Johnston’s second goal of the game held up as the winner on Saturday while Tyler Barnes’ 19th goal of the season was enough for the win on Sunday.
