Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week: 10/23-10/29

So which member of the Falcons #1 line do you think we picked?

Chiefs Release MacLean

According to ECHL.com, the Johnstown Chiefs have released defenseman Ian MacLean. MacLean was even in 2 games with 2 penalty minutes for the Chiefs. The move was prompted by defenseman Geoff Waugh's reassignment to Johnstown.

NHL Game Day 10/29: Sharks at Lightning

Good effort. Unfortunate result.

SJ-4
TB-2

Marc Denis stopped 25 of 28 shots faced before being pulled for the extra attacker and the resulting Sharks empty net goal. The Lightning were paced by Dan Boyle's two helpers with goals coming from Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis on the power play. Individual assists went to Vaclav Prospal and Nikita Alexeev.

I thought the Lightning played reasonably well against a good, rested team coming off the game last night in Carolina. Unfortunately they were the victim of a couple of bad bounces that ended up in the back of their net and some good goaltending by Nabokov. The good news is that Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis seem to be on pace to score the amount of goals the team needs from them now, although Brad Richards is still struggling. What would help greatly is if the Lightning could get something out of the lower lines from players like Karlsson, Afanasenkov and Perrin.

First Period
San Jose 4:02, Joe Thornton 1 (power play) (Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo)

Tampa Bay 13:02, Martin St. Louis 7 (power play) (Nikita Alexeev, Dan Boyle)

Doug Janik was -1 in 8:18 with 1 blocked shot. Eric Perrin was -1 in 8:23 with 2 shots and 1 hit and he was 0/1 on faceoffs. Nick Tarnasky played just 3:01 receiving only 3 shifts after taking an early penalty for tripping.

Retraction: Deveaux and Rosehill

Apologies to our readers but Andre Deveaux and Jay Rosehill have not been sent down to Johnstown of the ECHL. It helps when I actually read the link I'm posting to. My bad.
