Game Day 1/8: Falcons at Monarchs

I believe that's 12 straight games now where the Falcons have allowed 4 or more goals. And the winless streak continues. SPR-3 MAN-5 Gerald Coleman made 20 saves on 24 shots faced in the loss. Through two periods he had allowed 3 goals on just 8 shots putting the Falcons in a situation where their 29-8 shot superiority was all for naught fighting a 3-2 deficit. At this pont Dirk Graham seems to have zero faith in Brian Eklund while Coleman, a rookie who was never a full time starter in junior, is watching his season start to circle the drain. As it stands right now his save percentage is a terrible .889. How long are the Lightning/Falcons going to continue to run this young man through the meat grinder before they make a move? It's been clear for at least a half a month now what the organization needs to do: either acquire a veteran goaltender or give your ECHL All-Star Jonathan Boutin or your Spengler Cup team member Morgan Cey the opportunity to do what [i]neither[/i] of these goaltenders seem capable of doing right now: stop 90% of the pucks they see. Marek Kvapil led the way offensively with 1G 1A while Nick Tarnasky had a tally of his own and Lightning prospect Dennis Packard had an assist and Lightning exhile Chris Dingman had a helper of his own. None of that amounts to a hill of beans however if this team's goaltenders continue to allow 4 or 5 goals every night out. The Falcons [i]cannot[/i] win consistently with that kind of performance between the pipes. Period.
