Game Day 4/2: Falcons at Bruins

It's just painful. SPR-2 PRO-6 Gerald Coleman stopped just 29 of 35 in the loss. Springfield got a power play goal from Ryan Vesce in the first on the power play from PJ Atherton and Dan Cavanaugh and a garbage time goal with 19 seconds left from Jason Jaspers. Jaspers' goal was his 25th from Kvapil and Blatny. Kvapil has 17 goals and 41 points in 72 games as a rookie.
