Janus, Jaroslav

AHL Game Night: 10-22-11 Senators at Admirals

A wise old hockey man once told me how incredibly hard it was to beat a team twice in two nights, no matter how convincing your win on the first night.

BNG-3
NOR-2 (SO)

Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 goals on 38 shots before allowing 1 of 3 shooters to convert for the shootout loss. You can't fault Janus when the goals he allows are breakaways.

First Period
BNG Parrish, (5) (Wiercioch, Lehner), 10:06 (PP)
BNG Petersson, (1) (Godfrey, Lehner), 15:14

Second Period
NOR Vernace, (1) (Picard, Smith), 17:21 (PP)
NOR Vernace, (2) (Labrie, Smith), 18:55

Third Period

Shootout
BNG- Hoffman
NOR- NONE

Mike Vernace was the game's second star.

It was an interesting lineup and an interesting result for the Admirals. Cory Conacher was out and Ondrej Palat, who was stopped in his shootout attempt, was in. And, it was a fight marred game without the typical flow Norfolk has enjoyed offensively.

Shots ended up 39-39, which is strange after the shot board pasting Norfolk issued last night.

Norfolk travels to Charlotte for a late afternoon tilt tomorrow.

AHL Game Night: 10-15-11 Admirals at Bears

Ouellet is money in overtime.

NOR-6
HER-5 (OT)

Jaroslav Janus allowed 5 goals on 37 shots for the win. There's still no clear changing of the guard between the pipes, in my opinion, after this performance.

First Period
HER Mink, (1) (Aucoin, McNeill), 6:42 (PP)

HER Micflikier, (2) (Aucoin, Mink), 13:15 (PP)

Overtime
NOR Ouellet, (2) (Angelidis), 1:06

Cory Conacher and Michel Ouellet were the game's first and second stars.

Mark Barberio had his points streak snapped, but Carter Ashton and Tyler Johnson continue their offensive mastery.

AHL Game Night: 10-14-11 Bears at Admirals

Does this open the door for Janus to take the starting job?

HER-7
NOR-5

Dustin Tokarski allowed 6 goals on 22 shots for the loss before being lifted for Jaroslav Janus, who allowed 1 goal on 11 shots the rest of the way. The numbers are ugly. Tokarski has a 6.35 GAA and .788 sv% in his first two starts, after being injured for much of training camp. My guess is that if Janus' next start is successful, he may be the #1 for a little while.

First Period
HER Bourque, (2) (Micflikier, McNeill), 4:47 (PP)
HER Flemming, (1) (Bourque, Wellar), 10:11
NOR Wyman, (1) (Smith, Tyrell), 15:32
NOR Johnson, (3) (Ashton, Barberio), 17:02 (PP)

Second Period
HER Eakin, (1) (Flemming, Richmond), 2:02
HER Bourque, (3) (Aucoin, Micflikier), 8:07 (PP)
NOR Barberio, (1) (Ashton, Johnson), 9:32
HER Micflikier, (1) (Mink, McNeill), 12:05 (PP)

Third Period
HER Eakin, (2) (Bourque, McNeill), 2:07
NOR Ouellet, (1) (Gudas, Wright), 2:25
HER Aucoin, (2) (Mink, Bourque), 6:06
NOR Panik, (1) (Picard), 16:26

On the bright side, Mark Barberio (3 GP, 1-5-6), Tyler Johnson (3 GP, 3-2-5), and Carter Ashton (3 GP, 3-3-6) continue to rack up points at an obscene clip. 2 points a game for any player is ridiculous. 2 points a game for a d-man like Barberio (pictured) is fantastic.

Norfolk hits the road for a rematch with Hershey tomorrow night. Again, the big intrigue will be between the pipes, where Jaroslav Janus will likely play, and if he does well, there may be a change in the depth chart for a while in net.

AHL Game Night: 10-8-11 Checkers at Admirals

The kids are still alright...

CHA-3
NOR-4

Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the win. With Dustin Tokarski being hurt in camp and after giving up 5 goals on opening night, there's a bit of an opening for Janus to win a few more starts. He helped his stock tonight with a perfect 13/13 in the final frame to slam the door shut and secure the win.

First Period
NOR Ashton, (3) (Barberio, Conacher), 12:58 (PP)
CHA Bowman, (1) (Sanguinetti, Matsumoto), 16:12 (PP)

Second Period
CHA Roy, (1) (Matsumoto, McNicoll), 9:40 (PP)
NOR Picard, (2) (Wright, Fornataro), 10:38
NOR Johnson, (2) (Vernace, Conacher), 15:44
CHA Bowman, (2) (Matsumoto, Bellemore), 19:50

Third Period
NOR Conacher, (1) (Ashton, Johnson), 5:50

Cory Conacher (pictured) and Tyler Johnson were the game's first and second stars. Their linemate, Carter Ashton, also chipped in his 3rd goal of the season, and as a group they accounted for 3 of Norfolk's 4 goals.

Norfolk outshot Charlotte 44-29 in the match.

The star of these two preseason games for the Ads was Tyler Johnson, who had a couple of helpers and a goal over the past two nights. You don't score a ton like this young man did in the WHL without having some idea how to play the game. It wouldn't shock me in the slightest to see him put up a 20+ goal 50+ point rookie campaign.
