Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week: 2/5-2/11

This was a difficult decision with Maine senior Mike Lundin having such a great week (2 GP, 2-1-3). However, this week's winner proved that perserverance pays off...

Salisbury Game Night: 2/10

Salisbury School's winning steak now sits at nine after beating Loomis Chaffee School 6-0 on Saturday. Kevin Quick finished with 2 assists in the game. All six goals came in the first period and it was the first time this season the Knights (15-3-2) have finished a game without a penalty.

Quick now has eight assists on the season and is a +17 with 8 PIM. Salisbury takes on Albany Academy this Wednesday at home.

ECHL Game Day 2/11: Royals at Chiefs

No matter what the fate of the Chiefs is off the ice and in the financial ledger, Johnstown is absolutely kicking some tail right now.

REA-2
JHN-5

Ryan Munce stopped 24 of 26 shots faced for the win, his first in a Chiefs jersey. Johnstown's 5 goal third period was ignited by a thermonuclear 2 goal 2 assist effort by Adam Henrich, who is apparently POed that I wrote him off earlier this week. Memo to self: write off Marek Kvapil next week. Johnstown's other goals came from Maxime Boisclair, Gus Katsuras and Randy Rowe. Katsuras' goal was an auspicious reintroduction to the team after missing two months due to injury. Have mercy, the Chiefs are reloading for the stretch run. Bryan Nathe, Ryan Gibbons, Geoff Waugh, Grant Jacobsen, John Adams and Andrew Martens added individual helpers. Don't look now, but big Ryan Gibbons is riding a four game scoring streak. Henrich, Katsuras and Rowe were named the game's three stars.

Johnstown moves to within 1 point of 4th place Toledo as they burn a trail back into the playoff hunt.
