Wednesday March 11

There were a pathetic 3 games on tap Wednesday night with only a pair of Former Islander happenings to not in 1 game. Here is a recap of that contest:

In only his 3rd game since being acquired by Anaheim center Petteri Nokelainen scored his first goal as a Duck and first of the season as they edged the visiting Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in OT. Noky now has 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) on 36 games this season. The netter snapped a 49 game (7 playoff) goal-less streak dating back to March 22, 2008 while still a member of the Boston Bruins. Out with an injury since February 10, Nokelainen has played well in his last 5 games of actually ice time scoring 1 goal and adding 2 assists for 3 points. Taking the OT loss for the Canucks was goaltender Roberto Luongo who stopped 37 of 41 shots but only 2 of 3 in the extra frame. The loss dropped Luongo to 23-9-6 on the season. He is sporting a .916 save percentage, a 2.46 goals against average and 5 shutouts.

Check back soon for more highlights.
