It was not pretty

Kyle Burroughs (Regina Pats)
Winning doesn't have to be pretty as winning is simply put about the 2 points and for the 7 New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects, Sunday was a mixed bag. Kyle Burroughs (NYI 2013 7th) had 2 assists to help his Regina Pats earn a 3-1 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Burroughs with his 14th and 15th assists were also his 14th and 15th points of the season got his 1st assist on Regina's 2nd goal which also proved to be the game winner. It was a power play goal at 17:32 of the first period and it was a secondary assist. 1:49 later at 19:21 with the Pats killing a penalty, it was Burroughs with the only assist on Carter Hansen's 1st goal of the season.

Adam Pelech (NYI 2012 3rd)
had a secondary assist and Troy Donnay (NYR 2013 UFA) was scoreless as their Erie Otters saw their 11 game unbeaten streak come to an end. The Otters fell 6-2 to the London Knights as the Knights scored 4 goals in the 2nd half of the game.

Pelech with the assist improves to 5-10-15 as he extends his scoring streak to 12 games 5-8-13.

Ryan Graves (NYR 2013 4th) and his Charlottetown Islanders are winless in their last 7 games (0-6-1) as they lost to the Moncton Wildcats 6-2. Graves was ejected in this game in the 2nd period as he was involved in 2 fights during the same stoppage. It was Graves 2nd and 3rd fight of the season and I am not 100% sure but I think Graves faces at least a 1 game suspension for this.

Ryan Pulock (NYI 2013 1st)
was scoreless as his Brandon Wheat Kings ended their 6 game road trip with their 2nd straight win this one over the Lethbridge Hurricanes 6-2. The Wheat Kings struggled through most of this road trip but were able to end it on a positive note.

Griffin Reinhart (NYI 2012 1st)
was also scoreless as his Edmonton Oil Kings defeated the Calgary Hitmen 4-2. The win improves the Oil Kings to 9-7-0-1.

Finally MacKenzie Skapski (NYR 2013 6th) took the loss but he doesn't deserve the blame as his Kootenay Ice were defeated 4-2 by the Tri-City Americans. Skapski stopped 26 out of 29 shots but he played a solid game keeping the Ice in it even though the Americans were smothering them on offense.

Skapski has lost 2 straight to fall to 6-5-2 3.11 goals against and a 0.898 save percentage.
