Conklin, Winnik Contribute

Daniel Winnik has a first period assist tonight helping his Phoenix Coyotes to a 2-0 lead near the close of the first period. A lead that they maintain with the second period now concluded. It's Winnik's 6th assist and 9th point of the year.

Ty Conklin has backstopped his Pittsburgh Penguins to a perfect sixth win in six games and his fifth straight in five straight starts. Tonight he turned away 33 of 35 shots from the Toronto Maple Leafs who managed one even-strength goal halfway through the first and a powerplay tally just over halfway through the third after they had fallen behind 5-1 on three Pittsburgh goals in 48 seconds earlier in the third. The goalie on the other end was BC's, Scott Clemmensen, who has been in the net opposite Ty plenty of times during their Hockey East days. Unfortunately he had a much worse night allowing 6 goals on 24 shots. For Ty it marks yet further decreases in his goals against average and an increase in save percentage as he earned the Second Star of the game.

Way to go fellas!

Unfortunately there is more bad news to report as Jacob Micflikier, fresh off of playing in his first AHL game this season the night before, broke his leg in the morning skate after catching a rut in the ice.

Get well soon, Jacob! Wildcat Nation wishes you a speedy recovery.

Go 'Cats!
