I apologize to all who tried to access the site over the last 36 hours while we were down. Last I heard from Tim, we were having some hardware issues in Bolt Prospects Tower, Nashville. So what'd we miss in the mean time?
-The Lightning took a road loss in Ottawa 4-2  in a game where I thought they played a decent road game for 45 minutes only to come unraveled at the end.
-Zbynek Hrdel  was recalled by the Falcons  from Johnstown after Adam Henrich  was benched for two periods in Springfield's Wednesday victory over Albany. In other news from Johnstown, Mike Egener  was slated to play in Friday's game against Trenton after leaving the previous game against Toledo with an undisclosed injury.
-Vasily Koshechkin  notched another shutout Friday with a 2-0 victory over Dynamo, his 6th of the season. The shutout was Koshechkin's 6th in 9 games and improved his record to 7-2-1 since becoming the starter for Lada Togliatti.
-Springfield defeated Wilkes-Barrie/Scranton 4-3  on the strength of a Doug O'Brien  overtime winning goal. Marek Kvapil  had 2 assists in the contest and Gerald Coleman  stopped 37 of 40 for the win.
-The Johnstown Chiefs are still looking for their first victory of the season after dropping a shootout loss in Trenton 3-2.
