Game Night 9/30: Bruins at Falcons (Exhibition)
The Falcons waffled the Providence Bruins tonight in their first official preseason game 5-2. Falcons goal scorers were Norm Milley, shorthanded, Marek Kvapil, Jim Campbell, Dennis Packard and Brandon Elliot.
Brian Eklund stopped 17 of 19 through two periods before giving way to Morgan Cey who went a perfect 6 for 6 in the final frame to seal the victory.
Fran Sypek's write up of the game praises last year's rookie Falcons like Andre Deveaux. Second year pros Deveaux and Henrich notched one assist each while Paul Ranger had 2 assists. Norm Milley (1G 1A) and Ryan Vesce (2A) also had multi-point nights. Vesce was originally credited with the Falcons' fifth goal which was awarded to Elliot. Henrich and Darren Reid led the team in shots on goal. The Falcons' final preseason game is Sunday.
