AHL Game Night 1/26: Devils at Falcons

It makes me sick to my stomach to see the Falcons blow a 3-0 lead.

LOW-5
SPR-3

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss and his season record (13-14-0) now falls under .500 for the first time since October. Norm Milley led the Falcons with 1 goal and 1 assist while Daniel Corso had 2 assists. Eric Healey and Andre Deveaux had the other Falcons goals and Doug O'Brien, Adam Henrich and Andy Delmore had individual helpers. Milley was named third star of the game.

Instead of leapfrogging Portland into 5th in the division and keeping pace 4 points back of the final Atlantic Division playoff spot, the Falcons have dropped 6 points out of the playoffs and just 1 point out of the Atlantic Division basement. Tonight's game was the first of a five game spot in the schedule where Springfield looked to have some winnable games, but the third period collapse against Lowell seems an ominous sign.

Basement Bound

The aforementioned (last place) Devils are 1 point behind the Falcons with 3 games in hand. For that matter the 5th place Portland Pirates are 1 point ahead of SF also with 3 games in hand. Looks like another season of playing out the string. Scoob in Spfld.
