ECHL Game Night 11/25: Titans at Chiefs

A little dose of reality for the Chiefs tonight.


Gerald Coleman stopped just 32 of 37 shots faced for the loss before Trenton tacked on an empty net goal. Maxime Boisclair and Grant Jacobsen led the attack for Johnstown with 1 goal and 1 assist each while Doug Andress had 2 assists. Ryan Gibbons had the other Chiefs goal and Randy Rowe and Brandon Elliot each had individual assists. The Chiefs have been surviving with a skilled offensive attack and power play despite being outshot in far too many of their games. Tonight against Trenton they were outshot 38-26 and it caught up with them in the form of four unanswered Titans goals in a third period that saw the tribe outshot 15-5 in the final stanza. Boisclair and Jacobsen were named second and third stars of the game as Johnstown's media apparently rolled out some home cooking on the decision despite their club getting doubled up.

I'm amazed at how well Johnatown has played with Spina and Lascek getting called up.

Henrich Recalled to Springfield

In a move to fill the vacancy left by Blair Jones who is up with the Lightning, the Springfield Falcons today announced the recall of LW/C Adam Henrich. Henrich, a former 2002 2nd round pick, is riding a hot streak with 7 points in his last 3 games in the ECHL.

henrich tearing the E up!

i think its time that adam gets his opportunity especially after that 8-0 spanking that springy took. henrich has 7 points in his last 3 games and is a team leading +6 in 9 games. give him is fair chance at a 1st or 2nd line in springfield. how do u guys feel...?

ECHL Game Night 11/18: Chiefs at Bombers

Their bus may have had trouble getting to the rink, but the Chiefs had no problem once they got there.


Gerald Coleman stopped 23 of 24 for the win in a game which was delayed because the Chiefs had bus problems on their way to the game. Veteran Randy Rowe led the way for Johnstown with 1 goal and 2 assists, Doug Andress had 1 goal and 1 assist and Adam Henrich chipped in 2 helpers. Maxime Boisclair scored the other Chiefs goal while Ian MacLean chipped in an individual assist. Rowe and Coleman were named the first and third stars of the game, respectively. Amazingly, Johnstown has rebounded quickly from the loss of Stanislav Lascek to recall and has now gotten back to .500 at 7-7-1 which is good for a tenuous 1 point lead for first place in the North Division, although it should be noted the Chiefs have played 5 more games than second place Trenton.

Gerald Coleman hitting his stride? Adam Henrich back from the abyss?


Coleman stopped 29 of 31 shots faced for the win. Since returning from an injury suffered in October, Coleman is 3-0-1 with a 2.75 GAA and .920 save percentage. Veteran Randy Rowe and Adam Henrich led the offense with 1 goal and 1 assist each. In his last three games Henrich has 3 goals and 6 points with 9 penalty minutes and a +4 rating. The other Chiefs goals were scored by Ryan Gibbons and Zbynek Hrdel. Individual assists belonged to Ian MacLean, Maxime Boisclair, Andre Deveaux and Radek Smolenak. MacLean was reacquired off of waivers after experiencing visa issues when he was originally taken off waivers earlier this month by Wheeling. Rowe, Henrich and Coleman were the three stars of the game.

ECHL Game Night 11/15: Titans at Chiefs

Losing Lascek to callup is going to really hurt the Chiefs.


Morgan Cey stopped 39 of 43 shots faced in the loss. The Chiefs entered the final frame tied 2-2 with Trenton, but were outshot a staggering 21-11 in the final stanza. Adam Henrich, who appears to have responded to his benching, led the way for Johnstown with 1 goal and 2 assists. Rookie Maxime Boisclair had 2 assists. Randy Rowe had 1 goal and 1 assist while rookie Ryan Gibbons added his first professional goal. PJ Atherton had an individual helper in the game, the 11th point in 13 games. On paper, the Chiefs appear to have the pieces to be a much better club with several player at or around a point a game and two solid, esperienced pro goaltenders, but to this point Coach Anzalone's group just hasn't been able to put it all together.

First Period
JHN Rowe, (6) (Henrich, Boisclair), 4:29

Johnstown now slips to 5-7-1 on the year. Randy Rowe was named first star of the game.

Frank Anzalone's message seems to have worked.


Frank Anzalone followed through on his threat to leave some forwards in Johnstown as the Chiefs only iced 9 men up front tonight leaving Zbynek Hrdel and Adam Henrich out of the lineup. Gerald Coleman allowed 3 goals on 35 shots faced, including 1 goal which came on a penalty shot by Greg Hoogeboom, and got the win. Stanislav Lascek had 2 goals and 1 assist in the game. Radek Smolenak, who was a disciplinary scratch in last night's game, returned to the lineup today and notched a pair of assists. Gus Katsuras, David Spina and Maxime Boisclair (empty net) scored the Chiefs' other goals. Andrew Martens, Doug Andress and PJ Atherton added individual helpers.

Lascek and Coleman were the first and second stars of the game respectively.

It's probably no coincidence this team struggles to get points without Lascek in the lineup.
