AHL Game Night: 12-19-09 Senators at Admirals

Left a point on the ice.

BNG-5
NOR-4

Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 23 shots for the loss. It seems to me, at least in the short term, it may be time to make Dustin Tokarski the number one and quit rotating the netminders. Helenius is clearly on a cold streak.

Ty Wishart and Martins Karsums were named the game's second and third stars. Wishart's 1 goal and 2 assist night was his first multi-point effort of the season and he now has 6 points in his last 6 games. He's a guy who was a big scorer from the backline in junior. Is his offensive ability finally starting to peek through? Karsums has exploded with 5 points in the two games against the Sens this weekend. He had just 6 points all season prior to last night's win.

Matt Lashoff is now -16 in 26 games after a -2 night tonight. Oof.
