Week 14 - Thursday Night Stats
For a moment there on Thursday night the Highlanders looked like they might actually regain some of their cushion - some breathing space in the relentless advance of the Bladerunners to the top of the Predator Cup table. But it couldn't last the night. With a half-minute to go in the Leafs loss to the Islanders, Kessel and Phaneuf combined on a "meaningless" goal and from there the advance continued. Schneider surrendered 3 goals in 5 minutes taking a nice pt gain and converting it into a pt loss for the night. While Niemi pitched a one-hitter. 2.5pts is the lead now. Little reason to expect it will last Friday night.
