AHL Game Night 10/14: Falcons at N. Admirals

Ouch. SPR-1 NOR-8 Sean Burke allowed 5 goals on 14 shots for the loss before being lifted for [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo[/url] who allowed 3 on 17. Jared Aulin scored the lone Falcons goal. [url=marek-kvapil]Marek Kvapil[/url] was a scratch for Springfield. It should also be noted Ramo got multiple penalties for leaving the crease and initiating a fight with Admirals goaltender Sebastien Caron in a bloody and fight marred third period. Game sheet from [url=http://stats.theahl.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1002266]TheAHL.com.[/url] Following this disasterous effort I expect some changes might be made before next weekend's batch of game. It was already a likelihood that some of the lower line/healthy scratches like [url=andre-deveaux]Deveaux[/url], [url=adam-henrich]Henrich[/url] or [url=zbynek-hrdel]Hrdel[/url] might be on their way down for Johnstown's opener, but given the strong play of [url=stanislav-lascek]Lascek[/url] and [url=radek-smolenak]Smolenak[/url] in the Chiefs' preseason games this weekend, now might be the time for Springfield to entertain more wholesale changes.

Burke - Looking for the Puck

Like most things for the Bolts this year not working out as expected. Management is counting on Burke doing well in Springfield to make him marketable. A few more like this and all the league will know he is worthless and we will not be-able to move him for cap space needed at the trading deadline. I smell blockbuster trade coming in the not too distant future!

Horrific Officials

The Falcons had referee Terry Koharski for both games this weekend and it was a disaster. There were FIFTY FIVE penalties called in two days. That has to be some kind of record...... Not an excuse for poor play, but we all know what happens when a team is entirely frustrated by pathetic penalty calling.
