Sean Burke allowed 5 goals on 14 shots for the loss before being lifted for [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo
[/url] who allowed 3 on 17. Jared Aulin scored the lone Falcons goal. [url=marek-kvapil]Marek Kvapil
[/url] was a scratch for Springfield.
It should also be noted Ramo got multiple penalties for leaving the crease and initiating a fight with Admirals goaltender Sebastien Caron
in a bloody and fight marred third period.

Following this disasterous effort I expect some changes might be made before next weekend's batch of game. It was already a likelihood that some of the lower line/healthy scratches like [url=andre-deveaux]Deveaux[/url], [url=adam-henrich]Henrich[/url] or [url=zbynek-hrdel]Hrdel[/url] might be on their way down for Johnstown's opener, but given the strong play of [url=stanislav-lascek]Lascek[/url] and [url=radek-smolenak]Smolenak[/url] in the Chiefs' preseason games this weekend, now might be the time for Springfield to entertain more wholesale changes.
