AHL Game Night: 11-2-19 Devils at Crunch

Crunch power play ruins Domingue's plot for revenge.

BNG-2
SYR-3

Scott Wedgewood allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the victory.

First Period
5:31 BNG Zetterlund (2), (Sharangovich, Studenic)
6:17 SYR Mueller (3), (Barre-Boulet)(PP)
7:27 SYR Barre-Boulet (5), (Conacher, Gaunce)(PP)
10:47 SYR Somppi (3), (Foote, Smith)(PP)

Second Period
1:25 BNG Bastian (2), (McLeod, Schmelzer)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Alex Barre-Boulet, Cal Foote and Wedgewood were the game's three stars.

The Otto Somppi boomlet continues.

After a paucity of games to start the year, Syracuse's 3 in 3 nights weekend could do a lot to raise their standing on the division table. They've got games in hand on all of the teams in front of them in the North Division and their .667 points percentage is actually fourth best in the division to this point. So, if they can keep winning at that clip, they should make up ground quickly with games coming in clumps.

NHL Game Night: 11-1-19 Lightning at Islanders

Fragile Lightning come unglued late on the Island.

TB-2
NYI-5

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 25 shots for the loss, including an uber softie he cannot allow in the final frame of a game where the Lightning are trying to mount a comeback.

18:03 TB McDonagh (1), (Stamkos, Palat)

What's strange is that this was a very evenly played game where the Lightning were pressing well in the Third for an equalizer and the wheels just came completely off. Poise and confidence seemed to be completely lacking tonight, and it just seems like the team is unsure of itself. That's crazy considering what they were last regular season, but that's what I saw tonight.

Alexander Volkov was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 14:04. I'd burn the tape of this game. He just didn't look ready for prime time. Playing on a line with Stamkos and Kucherov, if he really was ready for this level we'd have seen him flash more through two games. He hasn't.

AHL Game Night: 11-1-19 Sound Tigers at Crunch

Somppi and Stephens coming on strong in Crunch win.

BRI-1
SYR-5

Scott Wedgewood allowed 1 goal on just 16 shots for the win.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
4:06 SYR Stephens (1), (Katchouk)
4:31 BRI St. Denis (1), (Schilkey, Pierog)
18:27 SYR Walcott (1), (Somppi, Raddysh)

Third Period
1:12 Valleau (2), (Conacher, Yan)
2:04 SYR Somppi (2), (Raddysh, Walcott)
2:09 SYR Stephens (2), (unassisted)

Mitchell Stephens, Daniel Walcott, and Otto Somppi were the game's three stars.

Somppi really played well in the AHL preseason, which often doesn't amount to a hill of beans. But, he's carried that momentum into 4 points in his first 5 games of the regular season. That's found money with a talented Finn who has had some issues with injuries that have held him back.
