Augusta failed in a comeback attempt in Charleston tonight against the South Carolina Stingrays. After falling behind 3-0, Augusta twice pulled within a goal before falling short 5-3 in their second game of the season. Lightning prospect netminder Riku Helenius again did not play, with Joel Martin stopping 33 of 38 shots. Kevin Quick, who started again tonight, was pointless and finished -1 with 2 shots.
It's getting better, but still not quite there.
Mike Smith was the hard luck shootout loser stopping 21 of 21 in regulation and overtime before allowing 1 of 3 in the penalty shot session.
