In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Tim Gettinger had a three-point night as his Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defeated the Erie Otters 6-2. The game’s second star, Gettinger had a goal and two assists as the Greyhound won their eighth straight.

Gettinger got on the scoresheet with a secondary assist on the Greyhounds third goal of the game at 16:50 of the first. The goal would prove to be the game-winning goal for the Greyhounds.

In the second, Gettinger would earn the primary assist on the Greyhounds fourth goal, just 2:04 into the period. Gettinger would finish the scoring for the Greyhounds with a shorthanded goal at 13:06 also in the second.

For Gettinger, the three points helped set a new career high in points as he improved to 29-26-55 on the season. By the numbers, Gettinger is 13th in goals (29), second in shorthanded goals with five and fourth in game-winning goals with seven.

Tyler Nanne had a power-play goal for ninth-ranked Minnesota in their 7-1 win over Wisconsin. It was Nanne’s fourth goal and second power-play goal of the season as he improves to 4-6-10.

It was a very nice goal by Nanne who showed off his speed and skating ability on the goal. Nanne took a pass from Steve Johnson just before center ice and took the puck all the way to the net before scoring on a backhand shot. Check out the goal on this video clip from Fox Sports North.

Nanne needs to show that kind of offense more often if he wants an NHL career.

Morgan Barron was scoreless as his fourth-ranked Cornell Red shutout St. Lawrence 1-0 in ECAC action. Barron was “even” on three shots with a boarding minor (seventh minor of the season).

The win ensures that Cornell will finish no worse than third in the ECAC. The Red have just four games left in the regular season.

Ty Ronning and his Vancouver Giants were shutout by the Everett Silvertips 5-0. Ronning was a -1 on four shots and no penalties.

Vancouver falls to 29-18-5-3, third in the WHL’s BC Division four points behind second place Victoria.

Tyler Wall was the backup for UMass Lowell as they were shutout 3-0 by Massachusetts in Hockey East action. The River Hawks are 16-14 (10-10 Hockey East) with four regular-season games remaining on the schedule.
