That's an unfortunate outcome to a very good effort.
Gerald Coleman stopped 22 of 25 shots faced for his first AHL loss of the season. Springfield got goals from Marek Kvapil and Norm Milley with individual assists belonging to Doug Andress and Andy Rogers. In a dramatic departure from many recent efforts by the Falcons, Springfield dominated the shot count in outshooting Manchester 39-25.
