With the weight of the affiliation dissolving seemingly lifted off their shoulders, Springfield responds.

HFD-2
SPR-5

Jonathan Boutin stopped 29 of 31 shots faced for the win. Veteran Eric Healey led the way with 2 goals and 1 assist while new Falcon Joe Rullier had a trifecta of assists. David Spina added 2 goals and the Falcons' other newcomer, Nick Kuiper, had two helpers. Stephen Baby had the other Falcons goal and Justin Keller, Dan Cavanaugh and Norm Milley had individual assists. ATO player Dusty Collins was -1 with 2 shots on goal in his professional debut.

Kyle Wanvig and Ryan Munce were not available for the game due to travel problems presumably because of the snowstorm that has enveloped the Northeast. Karri Ramo was not listed as a healthy scratch in Springfield's game recap, for those who need fuel for the speculation he has been recalled.

Sypek: It's Over

Credit to Bolt Prospects member Mark for bringing this up in comments...

Fran Sypek writes on the Springfield Republican blog that the Springfield Falcons have called a Monday press conference to announce the team is dissolving their affiliation with the Tampa Bay Lightning organization to form a new one with the Edmonton Oilers. Sypek speculates the press conference means the Lightning have finalized a deal with the Norfolk Admirals to be the Lightning's affiliate next season, given that a precondition of the out clause of the recent deal signed between the Lightning and Falcons was that the Lightning needed to have a deal in place with another franchise to nullify the contract.

Falcons sign Dusty Collins to ATO

According to the Springfield Falcons website, Center Dusty Collins has been signed to a standard Amateur Tryout Agreement with the Falcons. Collins just finished his senior season at Northern Michigan. In his four years at Northern he scored 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points in 137 games. He also registered 135 PIM.
