Owen Sound 1 @ Guelph 4
Marek Bartanus did not register a point, was even, and had a minor penalty for delay-of-game in the Attack's 4-1 loss in Guelph Wednesday night.
Everett 4 @ Kamloops 1
Dane Crowley was plus-1 with 4 minutes in penalties for Everett as they defeated the Blazers in Kamloops, 4-1. Although the WHL doesn't list it on their web site, Washington online newspapers say Crowley scored an empty net goal, his 8th goal of the season.
Roster upheval leads to a critical loss.
Morgan Cey allowed 4 goals on 31 shots in the loss. Randy Rowe had the only Chiefs goal off assists from Geoff Waugh and Dimitri Tarabrin. Johnstown's loss puts them three points behind Dayton for the final playoff spot in the North Division. And, with the Falcons recently calling up two of the team's scoring liners and now having their two highest scoring defensemen in Springfield, things look like the could get a little bleak.

Just plain awful.
Karri Ramo allowed 6 goals on 43 shots before giving way to Jonathan Boutin who stopped 2 of 2 shots the rest of the way. Norm Milley and Daniel Corso each had 1 goal and 1 assist for the Falcons while Eric Healey added an individual helper, but with Nick Kuiper and Joe Rullier not in the lineup the Falcons were little match for the Sharks' onslaught tonight getting outshot a staggering 45-27. Milley managed to be named third star of the game, which is little consolation.
The Falcons are now an unlucky 13 games under .500 for the season.
