Janus, Jaroslav

AHL Game Night: 12-18-11 Admirals at Bears

Norfolk throws down the gauntlet in the AHL East Division, after spending the entire third period smacking Hershey in the face with it.

NOR-6
HER-3

Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the win. He had a rough first period allowing a quick goal early and a bad goal late to drop the Ads down 3-1. But, credit to the scrappy Slovakian tender, he shut the door the rest of the way to earn his second straight win.

Philip-Michael Devos and Mark Barberio were the game's first and second stars.

Wow. Just, wow. It takes a really good team to do that to Hershey in Hershey, especially on the third night of a three game weekend. Holy cow. Norfolk knots the East Division up all over again with 37 points a piece between the Bears, Penguins, and Admirals, although Norfolk is giving up a game in hand. Still, I don't think they'll enjoy what the Admirals left underneath their trees in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Hershey the last two nights. Those weren't just wins, those were statements of intent for a hostile takeover of the East.

Panik attack, y'all.

AHL Game Night: 12-10-11 Admirals at Senators

Complete domination.

NOR-5
BNG-2

Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 goals on 17 shots for the victory, snapping a personal 2 game losing streak in which he had allowed 10 goals. His save percentage is still a troubling .890, but tonight's win at least saved him the indignity of falling to a .500 record.

First Period
NOR Smith, (12) (Oberg, Kostka), 16:55 (PP)
BNG Klinkhammer, (4) (Da Costa, Cannone), 18:41 (PP)

NOR Johnson, (9) (Ashton, Barberio), 17:14

Third Period

NOR Conacher, (15) (Labrie, Smith), 10:08
NOR Wyman, (5) , 18:46 (EN/SH)

Trevor Smith and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Smith (pictured) leaps into a tie with TJ Hensick of Peoria for 3rd in the league at 31 points, with Hensick still in action in his game tonight. Conacher is 2 points back in 5th and leading all AHL rookies.

Norfolk outshot Binghamton a stunning 42-17 to complete the weekend sweep of the Senators. With Hershey falling to the Penguins tonight, it's now a two-way tie between Norfolk and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for first place in the East Division at 33 points. Norfolk will try to put some more distance between themselves and Hershey tomorrow at Giant Center in Hershey.

The AHL East Division and West Division are the only 2 in the league with 3 teams above a .600 points percentage so far this year.

Yuck.

ADK-5
NOR-1

Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He's dropped 4 of his last 5 and his save percentage has fallen to .890. Considering Dustin Tokarski has won 4 of his last 5, there's some separation between the two that is being established.

First Period
ADK McGinn, (3) (Holmstrom, Akeson), 5:49 (PP)
NOR Ashton, (13) (Johnson, Jackson), 6:18

Second Period
ADK Holmstrom, (5) (Testwuide, Hamel), 7:23

Third Period
ADK Jancevski, (2) (Harper, Kessel), 4:09
ADK Hamel, (10) , 14:50 (EN)

At least Carter Ashton broke his 5 game scoreless streak.

New Admirals Mike Kostka and Evan Oberg were not in the lineup for the Ads.

3 unanswered goals in the final 10 minutes were the difference... that and being -4 in goal differential on special teams, including allowing a shorthanded goal. That's just inexcusable. That's how you squander a 37-26 shots advantage.

Tyler Johnson and Carter Ashton were the game's first and second stars.

Remember Tyler Johnson (pictured)? He had 6 points in the first 4 games of the season before cooling off with 3 points in the subsequent 11. And then, boom, 3 point night. There's so much depth on the Admirals and it's truly under-appreciated. Trevor Smith has 20 points in the first 17 games this season, and he's barely figured in the three stars discussions in each game. Heck, he's not even the team's leading scorer, because Cory Conacher has 21 points, and he doesn't even have a contract with the Lightning, yet. There's 4 players on the Ads (Conacher, Smith, Ashton, and Mark Barberio) that are currently over a point-a-game. It's impressive.
