ECHL Game Night 11/4: Nailers at Chiefs

This team's not perfect, but it's skilled and it has some goaltending, and if you've got those elements you have a chance.


Johnstown got a very solid night from Gerald Coleman who stopped 35 of 37 shots faced for the win. The Chiefs were outshot 37-26 but still poured it on to move to .500 at 4-4-0 for the year. PJ Atherton paced the team with 3 power play assists while Gus Katsuras and Stanislav Lascek both poured in 1 goal and 1 assist each. Veteran Randy Rowe had 2 assists and newcomer David Spina, rookie Maxime Boisclair, and big Adam Henrich each had goals. Zbynek Hrdel and Andrew Martens each had individual assists.

Coleman, Atherton and Rowe were the game's three stars.

Lascek leads all ECHL rookies with 11 points in 7 games and is tied for sixth in the league in scoring. Atherton has 8 assists in 8 games and is first among all rookie defensemen in scoring and forth among all ECHL defensemen in scoring overall. I smell recalls, and for Atherton, sooner or later I smell Lightning contract.

ECHL Game Night 11/3: Titans at Chiefs

Wow. Coach Anzalone's boys just smacked the taste out of Trenton's mouth.


In his Johnstown debut, David Spina led the way with 2 goals and 1 assist while veteran Randy Rowe had 1 goal and 2 assists and Lightning prospects Stanislav Lascek and PJ Atherton each added 3 assists. Doug Andress, Gus Katsuras and Maxime Boisclair each piled on with 1 goal and 1 assist while Lightning prospect Brandon Elliot chipped in his first goal of the season and Adam Henrich and John Adams each had individual helpers.

Morgan Cey stopped 30 of 33 shots faced for the win to move his record to 3-1-0 this year. The Chiefs outshot the Titans 38 to 33, a marked turnaround after subpar efforts in their last couple of games. Spina, Rowe and Lascek were the game's three stars.

Falcons Recall Smolenak, Boutin and Waugh

The Springfield Falcons have announced the recall of LW Radek Smolenak, G Jonathan Boutin and D Geoff Waugh from Johnstown of the ECHL. In addition, the team has reassigned LW David Spina to Johnstown of the ECHL.

Through 6 games in Johnstown this season Smolenak has 2 goals and 6 points with 6 penalty minutes and a -4 rating. A 3rd round pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Smolenak was rated the 9th best prospect in the organization in Bolt Prospects' Preliminary Rankings for 2006-2007. Boutin expectedly returns to the Falcons after going 0-2-0 in the last week with a 3.07 GAA and .919 save percentage. Waugh, who just recently cleared up work visa issues which had plagued him after strong showings at Lightning and Chiefs camps, was even in 2 games played with the Chiefs with 2 penalty minutes.
