Boutin, Jonathan

AHL Game Night 3/30: Falcons at Bruins

One thing I won't miss in Norfolk: getting annihilated for what seems like two dozen games a year by Providence.

SPR-2
PRO-5

Jonathan Boutin, whose save percentage is sinking faster than a submarine with a screen door, allowed 4 goals on 22 shots for the loss before being pulled for Kevin Beech who allowed 1 goal on 9 shots. Eric Healey and ATO signee Jacob Micflikier had the Falcons goals. Jay Rosehill and Norm Milley added assists.

AHL Game Night 3/28: Devils at Falcons

Kyle Wanvig auditioning for a job next season?

SPR-2

Jonathan Boutin allowed 4 goals on 27 shots before being lifted for Kevin Beech who stopped 7 of 7 shots the rest of the way. Kyle Wanvig had both Falcons goals and David Spina, Sylvain Dufresne, Nick Kuiper and ATO Justin Fletcher added assists.

AHL Game Day 3/25: Monarchs at Falcons

Tonight was a make-up for a game that was snowed in a week or two ago.

MAN-4
SPR-3

Jonathan Boutin allowed 2 goals on 5 shots before being pulled for Kevin Beech who allowed 2 goals on 23 shots the rest of the way to take the loss in his first AHL game. Daniel Corso had 2 assists in the game with the Falcons' goals coming from Kyle Wanvig, Norm Milley and Justin Keller. David Spina, Eric Healey and Nick Kuiper added individual helpers.

AHL Game Night 2/23: Falcons at Phantoms

Darren Reid's revenge.

SPR-4
PHI-6

Jonathan Boutin allowed 6 goals on 34 shots in the game. Springfield got 2 goals and 1 assist from David Spina to go with 1 goal and 2 assists from Kyle Wanvig and a trifecta of helpers from Eric Healey. Stephen Baby had the other Falcons goal and rookie Andy Rogers added an assist as did Boutin. Healey was tapped for third star of the game honors.

Former Lightning prospect/Falcon Darren Reid had 1 goal and 2 assists in the game. Since leaving Springfield, Reid has 16 goals and 27 points in 38 games with the Phantoms and has received a couple of cups of coffee with the Flyers. I think it's fair to say the change of scenery worked for him.

As an aside, I hope the Lightning organization manages to wrap up David Spina's services for Norfolk next season. It's unlikely they'll retain Healey and Cavanaugh, in my opinion, and Milley and Corso may not be holdovers either. Spina, however, is a player the Lightning should try to retain in their minor league organization after spending two years developing him.

First Period
SPR Wanvig, (15) (Healey, Spina), 0:58
PHI Reid, (17) (Cullen, Kane), 17:19 (PP)

Second Period

AHL Game Night 3/21: Falcons at Bears

And the season continues to grind down to the bitter end.

SPR-2
HER-4

Jonathan Boutin allowed 4 goals on 35 shots in the loss. Justin Keller and Kyle Wanvig had the Falcons' goals with assists to Adam Henrich, Norm Milley and Eric Healey.

Interesting note for those looking for silver linings: Keller's goal totals pro-rate to about 20 goals for a full season had he not missed so much time with the injury he had in December. That's not a bad rookie campaign, especially for a player who is so undersized. That's something to build on, which is critical. Aside from Chris Lawrence, there's not much scoring help coming through the pipeline with the possible exception of the X factor that is the Kazionovs. So, whatever solutions to the minor league offensive woes there can be for next season have to come from within and have to come from the young forwards already under contract stepping up.

First Period
HER Werner, (1) (Laing, Arsene), 4:10
SPR Keller, (12) (Henrich, Milley), 8:41 (PP)

Second Period
HER Tenute, (22) (Wilson, Klepis), 6:37
HER Miles, (1) (Hedlund), 11:40

Third Period
SPR Wanvig, (14) (Healey), 3:54
HER Bourque, (20) (Steckel, Laing), 15:46
