OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) – Alex Pietrangelo celebrated his 28th birthday by scoring his first goal in more than two months. And, it ended up being a winner for the St. Louis Blues.

Pietrangelo, Vladimir Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn each scored in the second period of the 4-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Alexander Steen scored into an empty net at 18:42 to close out the scoring for St. Louis (28-17-3), while Carter Hutton made 20 saves.

The win was the second straight in Ontario for the Blues, who were 2-1 overtime winners over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

"One, it's on your birthday, but two, it's finally nice to get back on the board about 4,000 shots later," said Pietrangelo, whose last goal came on Nov. 11 against Arizona. "I think we felt it coming, someone on the back end was going to score. Five-on-five, we've really been jumping in the last two games here. It was just a matter of time before one of us got one."

Bobby Ryan had the lone goal for the Senators (15-19-9), and Craig Anderson made 33 saves. Ottawa was coming off its bye week and hadn't played in eight days.

The first period produced no goals and only one good scoring chance, when Hutton stopped Zack Smith on a breakaway after the Senators forward stole the puck at his own blue line and broke toward the St. Louis goal.

The second period was not a good one for the Senators as they were outshot 19-6 and, more importantly, outscored 3-1.

Tarasenko struck 6:13 into the period with a tip in front while spinning away from Robert Bortuzzo's point shot in front of Anderson.

The Blues took a 2-0 lead at 12:51 thanks to Anderson who, after making a save, batted the puck out of midair directly to Pietrangelo who had an empty net to shoot at from the left faceoff circle.

Anderson could also be blamed for the Blues taking a 3-0 lead at 16:53 as he misplayed a backhand from Schenn and allowed the puck to pass through his legs.

"The second period, it's a disease," Senators coach Guy Boucher said. "We stop shooting, we get perimeter play, we get east-west play, complicated plays and you get the second period we had. It's a disease we have to get rid of. We had the same disease last year to start the year and we got rid of it over time. It creeps back in.

"When we're at our best, that's not who we are, and we lose games because of the second period. We've got to get rid of that disease."

The Senators got one of those back at 17:21 when Ryan's shot from 10 feet inside the blue line redirected off the stick of Dmitrik Jaskin and over the shoulder of Hutton to cut the lead to 3-1.

"We got the first period we wanted," Boucher said. "They were ready to go, they played hard and didn't give much to the opponent. In the first period, we followed the plan. We played deep on them, we played 200 feet away from our goaltender and we shot.

"The first period was exactly what we wanted coming out of the break … and then, the second period."

FIGHTING AND BITING

The Senators got defenseman Mark Borowiecki back into the lineup after he missed 22 games with a concussion. He delivered a big hit early, got into a fight and got his finger bitten by Kyle Brodziak during a scrum late in the second period.

"He did, but it's not a big deal. We were laughing about it afterward," Borowiecki said of the bite.

NOTES: Ottawa forward Nate Thompson left the game and did not return with an undisclosed lower-body injury. … Fredrik Claesson and Jean-Gabriel Pageau were scratches for the Senators. … Carl Gunnarsson, Scottie Upshall and Oskar Sundqvist were scratches for the Blues. … The Senators haven't beaten the Blues in Ottawa since December 2013. … The Blues have earned points in their last 11 games against Ottawa.

Strickland Metals shares jump 39% ahead of drilling base metal target near DeGrussa

Strickland Metals Ltd (ASX:STK) shares surged 39% today ahead of its maiden drilling program at the Doolgunna Project, which will include a diamond drilling program that is likely to begin by the end of this month.

As a part of the program, a minimum of four diamond holes will be drilled to a depth of 500 metres to test a VMS target similar to the nearby DeGrussa deposit of Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR).

Exploration activity has recommenced on the Doolgunna Project following completion of heritage surveys to allow land access to areas where the company wishes to complete exploration drilling.

The target for drilling is a compelling base metal prospect that exhibits geological characteristics that are interpreted to be similar to Sandfire Resources’ DeGrussa deposit about 30 kilometres to the east of the project.

Pan Asia Metals has positive discussions on plans for Thai lithium project

Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX:PAM) has had positive discussions with authorities in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, including the provincial government, for its Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAM has submitted a presentation covering all aspects of the project including methods of ongoing exploration, conceptual mining and concentrate production, and the potential for downstream value-adding industries in Phang Nga and Thailand.

The presentation and subsequent discussions were aimed at assisting Phang Nga Provincial Government in their considerations for the proposed mining and industrial development areas.

Provincial Government discussions


Pan Asia was recently invited by the chief executive officer of the Phang Nga Provincial Administrative Organisation (PAO), a Phang Nga Provincial Government coordinating body, to represent PAM and the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

The meeting was also attended by the head of Phang Nga Provincial Industry along with the representatives of the Phang Nga Provincial Public Works and Town Planning Office.

Phang Nga Provincial Industry head has been appointed by the Phang Nga governor as chairman of the Phang Nga New Town Planning Committee.

During the meeting, the chairman of the committee conveyed its support for the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAO wants to ensure that the requirements of the Reung Kiet project are incorporated into the town planning committee’s zoning plans to ensure that the project can progress once exploration and feasibility results prove positive.

“Can bring opportunities”


PAM managing director Paul Lock said: “We have been working hard in Phang Nga province and we are very happy with the positive reception that the Reung Kiet Lithium Project is receiving from the Phang Nga Provincial Government and surrounding communities.

“Reung Kiet is strategically located and based on peer feasibility work the project is positioned to potentially be one of the lowest-cost suppliers of lithium chemicals in the global peer group.

“This is a project that can bring substantial opportunities and value to Phang Nga and Thailand.”

Pan Asia is planning its second Reung Kiet drilling program with expectations that this will begin in the coming months following the conclusion of the current Khao Soon drilling program.

Potential cost curve leader


Reung Kiet is a hard rock project with lepidolite rich pegmatites chiefly composed of quartz, albite and lepidolite with minor cassiterite and tantalite as well as other accessory minerals including some rare earth.

Lepidolite does not require roasting and has a suite of by-products which are recoverable at the concentrator and processing stages of the flow sheet.
