Zero Fans See Falcons Drop 7-2 Decision to Lowell

The 2005-06 Springfield Falcons looked a lot like the dreaded 2004-05 Falcons as Lowell broke open a 2-2 second period tie to beat Springfield 7-2 Tuesday night. The game, which was added late to the exhibition schedule, [url=http://www.masslive.com/springfield/republican/index.ssf?/base/news-1/1127894318249930.xml&coll=1] was played in an empty MassMutual Center[/url] and was described by Brandon Elliott as basically a scrimmage. Scoring for the Falcons, who dressed several tryout players, was Lightning prospect Zbynek Hrdel and tryout defenseman and former Ohio State Buckeye Doug Andress. Gerald Coleman and Jonathan Boutin continued their battle for depth chart supremacy with Coleman widening his lead by allowing two goals in his 30 minutes of action. Boutin allowed five to take the loss.
