Game Night 1/13: Falcons at Senators
Now I'm angry. I realize Jay Feaster has had some things on his plate recently, but to allow the situation between the pipes in Springfield to continue to worsen is ridiculous.
Gerald Coleman allowed 4 goals on 11 shots before being lifted. Brian Eklund didn't do any better allowing 5 goals on 25 shots. A transaction should've been made two weeks ago. Jonathan Boutin and Morgan Cey have played well in Johnstown and deserve the opportunity to try and do what Coleman and Eklund simply have not been doing for the past month. And while we're at it, why is this organization wasting time giving a PTO to John Adams (scratched tonight) while Gerard Dicaire and Mike Egener are down in Johnstown?
The exhiled Chris Dingman scored his third goal as a Falcon tonight while Marek Kvapil, Zbynek Hrdel and Andre Deveaux added markers of their own. Doug O'Brien and Nick Tarnasky had helpers in the game. But it doesn't mean anything because the Falcons' goaltenders simply cannot keep the puck out of their net. Something must be done, and this should be a lesson to those who believe that having an experienced AHL starter is a waste of a roster spot.
