AHL Game Day: 11/28/10 Admirals at Sound Tigers

Kevin Poulin does the unthinkable and shuts out the Admirals.


Dustin Tokarski only allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the hard luck lost, and must be wondering why Desjardins got all the goal support this weekend and not The Tic.

First Period

Second Period
BRI Ullstrom, (5) , 3:53

Third Period
BRI Castonguay, (1) (Blight, Ullstrom), 6:54
BRI Blight, (1) (Svendsen), 19:12 (EN)

Kevin who? Kevin Poulin is a rookie 5th round pick out of Victoriaville in the QMJHL and he stoned Norfolk on all 40 shots he faced today. Norfolk outshot Bridgeport 40-27 in the contest.

The cruelest cut of all is that Chris Durno, Radko Gudas, and Kevin Quick were all touched up with minuses in the loss. Durno dropped to second in the AHL at +13, Gudas fell to a tied for 4th at +11, and Quick is locked in a tied for 13th at +10.

NHL Game Night: 11/27/10 Panthers at Lightning

I hate shootouts, but not as much as I hate the Panthers.

TB-3 (SO)

Dan Ellis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots before giving up 1 goal on 4 attempts for the shootout loss. One of Ellis' goals allowed was on a penalty shot.

First Period
10:21 TB Purcell (5), Stamkos (18), Malone (10)(PP)

Second Period
10:12 TB Tyrell (3), Ritola (3), Downie (11)

FLA- Weiss

Teddy Purcell and Dana Tyrell were the game's second and third stars. Florida got the bounces they needed to hang around in the game and ended up stealing two points. The effort level was much improved from the Washington debacle, at least.

Mattias Ritola had an assist and two shots in 7:26. Tonight, his softness officially became a liability, when he got beat on Kulikov's goal.

Tyrell had a goal and was +1 with 3 shots, 2 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 12:22.

Blair Jones was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 2:37.

AHL Game Night: 11/27/10 Admirals at Falcons

Norfolk's third line runs wild.


Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 15 shots for the win. He continues to lap up the sweet nectar of seemingly unlimited goal support. Goalies everywhere in the AHL must be envious.

First Period
NOR Angelidis, (4) (Giliati, Jackson), 1:57
SPR Kubalik, (7) (Guite, Calvert), 6:18
NOR Labrie, (3) (Wishart, Gudas), 14:29

Second Period
NOR Harju, (13) , 14:45

Third Period
NOR Angelidis, (5) (Labrie), 2:15
NOR Giliati, (3) (Labrie, Angelidis), 6:59
SPR Tarnasky, (3) (Regner), 13:37

Mike Angelidis, Pierre-Cedric Labrie, and (my boy) Stefano Giliati were the game's three stars. Labrie and Giliati are quickly becoming BoltProspects favorites for their ability to provide both grit and lower line scoring for the Admirals. Labrie has 3 goals and 5 points in his last 3 games and Giliati has 2 goals and 6 points in his last 5 games. Keep and eye on these two players. Labrie has a little bit of a funky first step to his skating stride he needs to work out, but he has good size, hits everything that moves, isn't afraid to drop the mitts, and will chip in offensively. At some point, Julien BriseBois and the Lightning need to give serious consideration to giving Labrie either a full AHL ride, or possibly even an NHL entry-level deal. Giliati, despite being small in stature, is pesky and tough on the forecheck, with good speed and skill level.

Johan Harju is now tied with Linus Omark and several others at 23 points for 5th in the AHL in scoring. His 13 goals are third in the league, two back of leader Andrew Gordon of Hershey.

Chris Durno is now tied for the league lead in plus-minus at +14, one plus ahead of Radko Gudas, who improved to +13 and had a helper tonight.

Norfolk closes out the weekend tomorrow afternoon in Bridgeport. They remain 4 points back of the Pens for first in the East Division, with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton still holding a game in hand. Norfolk's 85 goals is tops in the AHL, 5 ahead of Hershey.
