Conklin, Winnik Shine

Winnik scores the first of what would become a three goal second period for the Phoenix Coyotes en route to a 3-1 defeat of the Calgary Flames. The goal goes down as his fourth of the year and added to his six assists gives him ten points in thirty-eight games and figures for one goal, one assist in his last three games.

Then you have Ty Conklin. Still unbeaten at 8-0. His statistics now stand at a truly ridiculous 1.88 GAA and a .941 save percentage! WHAT!?

Last night he and the Penguins faced the Florida Panthers who couldn't slip one by Ty, without kicking it and having it waived off, for one hundred and fifteen minutes and fifty-one seconds. And when they did, they managed just one on twenty-eight shots. All three Penguin goals came over a three minute and six second span, as they two had a three goal second period, beginning at 10:05 of the frame after a game-saving stop by Ty on a breakaway that was turned around for that first goal.

Ty also managed the lone Pittsburgh penalty! A delay of game minor. :)

Way to play guys! It's really special to see Wildcats work so hard and see it pay off so well - and so many of you are out there doing just that! More than I can keep up with without this being a full-time job!

Go 'Cats!
