I watched the game on B2. Bottom line: the goaltending was wretched tonight (4 soft goals between Boutin and Coleman) and several Falcons players look like they're thinking about tee times more than finishing the season strong. Plus you have 2 debuting defenseman and Tarnasky making up 1/2 of your blueline corps tonight thanks to injuries to Schultz and Rosehill. HFD-9 SPR-3 Hit read more to read my detailed thoughts on the game. Game sheet from [url=http://ahl.leaguestat.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1002008]TheAHL.com.[/url]
