I wasn't going to make the accusation, but Coach Anzalone [url=http://www.tribune-democrat.com/sports/local_story_296002820.html]took his team's conditioning to task after the Chiefs' home opening loss to Reading.[/url] In the Lightning system, conditioning is key to generating forecheck and generating forecheck is the key to everything. Now if they can just find a defenseman to hit a breakout pass consistently...

Although he's been quiet offensively in recent weeks, LW Johan Hagglund scored a power play goal today in Oskarshamn's 4-3 OT victory over Sundsvall. Hagglund has 2G 1A in 9 games this season with a +5 rating primarily on the team's second line. Oskarshamn is currently 4th in the Allsvenskan just 2 points back of first place Malmo.

What an ugly night for our two farm teams. PRO-8 SPR-2 Post mortem can be found [url=http://ahl.leaguestat.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1001106]at TheAHL.com.[/url] I doubt Gerald Coleman saw many nights like these in London.

Partly as a consequence of Artyukhin and Tarnasky being reassigned to Springfield, [url=http://www.falconsahl.com/detpages/pressbox2797.shtml]LW/C Adam Henrich has been reassigned to Johnstown of the ECHL[/url]. Henrich recorded an assist in last night's victory over the Hartford Wolf Pack, but that evidently was not enough to spare him the humbling experience of demotion. Henrich, a former 2002 2nd round pick, has the potential to blossom into a power forward in the professional ranks but has been chastized for a poor work ethic and an unwillingness to play in high traffic areas since his Springfield debut last season.

Meanwhile, on the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elba]Isle of Elba[/url]... Jean-Francois Soucy [url=http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/ppublic.cgi?action=summary&id=2290]notched an assist[/url] in Phoenix's season opening 4-2 victory over the Utah Grizzlies. The Roadrunners [url=http://www.phxroadrunners.com/news/?id=2424]got a taste[/url] of Soucy's oft-hidden offensive capabilities in an intra-squad scrimmage which took place Wednesday just after Soucy's reassignment to Phoenix. In that game Soucy had a hat trick including the game-tying goal with just 35 seconds left.

Erik Erlendsson [url=http://bolts.tbo.com/lightning/MGB5EGCD3FE.html]reports in the Trib[/url] that Evgeny Artyukhin and Nick Tarnasky have been sent down to Springfield of the AHL. The move is expected to be only a temporary measure to save cap room with the Lightning having a 4 days off until they play New Jersey Wednesday night. It is expected Tarnasky and Artyukhin will be recalled from Springfield at that time.
