AHL Game Night 1/24: Falcons at Monarchs

Unfortunately, this Falcons team just doesn't have a second line to speak of, and it's very difficult for them to come from 2 goals down as a result.

SPR-2
MAN-4

Karri Ramo stopped 28 of 31 shots faced in the loss. Springfield got 1 goal and 1 assist from Daniel Corso and a pair of helpers from Eric Healey. The other Falcons goal came from a suddenly red hot Doug O'Brien who has had goals in three of the last four games. Norm Milley also chipped in an individual helper.

AHL Game Day 1/21: Falcons at Wolf Pack

If Ramo got shot at any more in this game, someone would've owed him a medal.

SPR-1
HFD-2

Karri Ramo stopped 53 of 55 shots faced in the loss as the Falcons were outshot 55-22 including 19-5 in the decisive final period. For his Herculean efforts, Ramo was named second star of the game. The lone Falcons goal came on the power play from Doug O'Brien off assists from Marek Kvapil and Blair Jones. As unholy as the shot totals were in the game, they were just one savvy play from the veteran line away from stealing a point which isn't bad for their third game in three nights.

The loss puts the Falcons 2 points back behind the final playoff spot in the Atlantic Division at 22-22-1. The Falcons will face division leading Manchester on Wednesday and a struggling Philadelphia club on Saturday. From here on out every point matters.
