Hagglund Notches Goal in Oskarshamn Victory

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.

Game Night 10/22: Bruins at Falcons

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.

Henrich Demoted to Johnstown

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.

Norrena On First Losing Streak

Fredrik Norrena has lost back to back games for the first time this season. Today, Linkopings lost to Timra 2-0 on the strength of a Jussi Tarvainen shutout. Norrena stopped 27 of 29 shots in the loss. His record now falls to 8-2-1. Andreas Holmqvist was moved down to Linkopings' fourth pairing for the game.

Soucy's Roadrunner Debut

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.

Artyukhin/Tarnasky Sent Back Down, Temporarily

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.

Game Night 10/21: Senators at Lightning

The Lightning's perennial woes against the Ottawa Senators continue as the roller coaster that is the '05-'06 Tampa Bay Lightning found a trough on the rails again tonight. OTT-4 TB-1 Nick Tarnasky and Evgeny Artyukhin found themselves involved in some physical altercations late in the game, most notably an Evgeny Artyukhin hit from behind that probably should've been a major opening up Patrick Eaves. Artyukhin with 7:05 of ice time, 1 shot on goal and 2 hits. Nick Tarnasky finished with 6:35 of ice time with 1 shot on goal, 1 hit, 1 takeaway, 37% on faceoffs and 2 PIMs. Logic dictates there will be some roster movement soon on the lower lines.

Game Night 10/21: Wolf Pack at Falcons

The Atlantic Division will be in trouble if the Falcons ever learn to protect a late lead. HFD-3 SPR-4 (Final OT) Jim Campbell, who scored the OT power play game winner, got the first star of the game. Jason Jaspers, who had 2G 1A, was the second star. Ryan Craig, who had 1G 1A, was the third star. Brian Eklund made 30 saves on 33 shots for the victory. Adam Henrich emerged from the doghouse for an assist tonight. Darren Reid grabs an assist on each of Jaspers' goal. Game sheet [url=http://ahl.leaguestat.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1001095]can be found via TheAHL.com.[/url]
