AHL Game Night 3/7: Devils at Admirals

Ahhhh, so that's what a team playing like it has some pride looks like.

LOW-1
NOR-2

Riku Helenius allowed just 1 goal on 27 shots for the win to even his season record at 7-7-0. His .934 save percentage is gaudy.

First Period

Second Period
NOR Jones, (16) (Konopka, Lundin), 2:23 (PP)
LOW Bergfors, (16) (Magnan), 12:18
NOR Keller, (14) (Jones, Potulny), 17:06 (PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Blair Jones, Helenius, and Justin Keller were the game's three stars.

Jones has 5 goals and 6 points over the past 3 games and over the past 10 games he has 6 goals and 12 points. Keller is now 1 goal shy of his AHL career best and over the past 18 games he has 9 goals and 18 points. Both players are in the final years of their entry level deals and are playing to prove they have some sort of future in the organization. Lately, they've played well enough that, in my mind, they've earned a few games at the NHL level to show management what they can do against the big boys. Jones, in particular, is a guy who I think can compete at the next level if he approaches the game the right way.

The Admirals move back to 4 games under .500 for the season.

NHL Game Night 3/6: Blues at Lightning

One point further away from Tavares or Hedman?

STL-4
TB-3 (OT)

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 36 shots for the overtime loss. His rebound control needs work, but he was fairly sharp in this one.

Overtime
00:27 STL Boyes (26), (Colaiacovo, McDonald)

Noah Welch was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 4 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 23:06. He's servicable, if unspectacular.

Matt Smaby was -1 with 1 shot, 5 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 23:23. He took a skate to the cheek and hardly missed a shift. You can make a very strong case that he's been the team's best d-man over the last month.

David Koci had 1 hit in 6:52.

Martins Karsums was -1 with 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 10:59. You can see the attraction from the Lightning's end: he's a good skater with decent burst and feisty for an average sized player.

Brandon Segal had 2 shots and 3 hits in 12:50. He had some good moments tonight on the forecheck but shanked a rebound off a Karsums shot that should've been his first NHL goal.
