AHL Game Night 12/1: Falcons at Monarchs

Ramo may have been called up, but Springfield still has the Boutin Wall.

SPR-3
MAN-2 (OT)

In just his second start this season, Jonathan Boutin stopped 33 of 35 shots faced to secure his first win of the year and improve to 1-2-0. The Falcons offense was paced by veteran Norm Milley who had 1 goal and 1 assist including the overtime winner with 2:26 left in the extra session. Veteran defenseman Andy Delmore added 2 assists while rookie Justin Keller and veteran Eric Healey supplied the birds' other goals. Individual assists went to Dan Cavanaugh and Daniel Corso. Milley and Healey were named the first and third stars of the game, respectively.

The victory moves the Falcons to 11-10-0 this year which, despite placing the Falcons in sixth in the Atlantic Division, moves them just six points behind division leading Portland with a game in hand on the Pirates. In other words, the Falcons have played themselves right back into the thick of any potential playoff race.

Ramo Recalled

620 WDAE is reporting that the Lightning have recalled goaltender Karri Ramo from Springfield of the AHL. Ramo, a 20 year old 6th round pick from the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, is 8-3-0 this season with a 2.89 GAA and .911 save percentage with the Falcons. The netminder has won Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week honors for the past two weeks going undefeated in four starts over that span.

Chiefs Ponder Tryout for Forward

According to the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, forward Eric Przepiorka has been attending Chiefs practices and the team is pondering whether to sign him to a contract. The 5'9" 181 lb left winger was a top scorer for Dartmouth in the ECACHL for four years amassing 39 goals and 102 points in 132 games before making his pro debut last year in an ATO with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL. Przepiorka started this season with the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL and in 20 career games in the league he has 1 goal, 3 points and 10 penalty minutes.

NHL Game Night 11/30: Lightning at Bruins

More points left on the table at the hands of ex-Detroit Viper Tim Thomas.

TB-3
BOS-4 (SO)

Marc Denis allowed 3 goals on 25 shots before going perfect deep into the shootout until rookie Phil Kessel beat him with a shot high glove side to win it for Boston. Eric Perrin, Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier each had 1 goal and 1 assist for the Lightning with Ruslan Fedotenko and Vaclav Prospal adding individual helpers.

I can't be too upset, because the Lightning have outshot their opponents 84-45 in the last two games, and yet the club has only gotten one of a very winnable four points and are slowly slipping behind Carolina and Atlanta in the standings. Again, the schedule the next two months is brutal. The Lightning must bank whatever winnable games they can get, because there won't be many.

First Period
Boston 11:06, Brad Boyes 6 (Patrice Bergeron, Andrew Alberts)
Tampa Bay 17:08, Eric Perrin 6 (Vincent Lecavalier)
