AHL Game Day 3/4: Falcons at Sharks

The streak is over. Falcons win.

SPR-3
WOR-2 (SO)

Karri Ramo stopped 25 of 27 shots faced in regulation and overtime before stopping a perfect 8 of 8 penalty shots for the shootout victory. For Ramo, who went 0 for February in the win department, it was his first victory since January 19th at Providence. David Spina had a pair of assists in the game while Adam Henrich and PJ Atherton (slipping nicely through a Clear Day loophole) scored Springfield's goals. Matt Smaby and Andy Rogers, freshly dried from a dip in Springfield Republican beat writer Fran Sypek's vitriol, each had primary assists in the game. Daniel Corso, who scored the winning shootout goal, was named first star of the game while Spina took third star honors.

The win breaks the Falcons' 8 game winless streak. Interesting takeaway stats from the game: the Falcons outshot the Sharks 31-27 partly on the strength of Atherton's team high 5 shots on goal. I know someone who wants a contract.

Newly acquired Nick Kuiper was +1 in the game. Joe Rullier did not suit up for the Falcons.

Morgan Cey stopped 29 of 31 shots faced for the victory. [url=adam-Henrich once again led the way offensively with a pair of goals. Jean Desrochers had the game winning goal and individual helpers belonged to Ian MacLean, Maxime Boisclair, Zbynek Hrdel, Andrew Martens and PJ Atherton. Henrich, Desrochers and Cey were the game's three stars.

In six games since being returned to Johnstown from Springfield of the AHL, Henrich has 7 goals, 12 points and a +7 rating. Given the Falcons' offensive woes, at some point Henrich is probably going to earn another recall soon.
