PlanetUSA All-Stars Win AHL All-Star Game

Hartford Wolf Pack forward Ryan Callahan scored the game winning goal with under 4 seconds left in regulation tonight to lift the PlanetUSA All-Stars to a 7-6 win over the Canadian All-Stars at the AHL All-Star Game. Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo played in the second period for the PlanetUSA Team stopping 9 of 12 shots faced. Callahan's goal came just after a mildly controversial no call by the referees after PlanetUSA netminder Marek Schwarz clearly handled the puck below the goal line outside of the trapezoid. Hershey forward Thomas Fleischmann subsequently guided his team down on a 2-on-1 and shot the puck, leaving Callahan a juicy rebound for the winning marker.

Ramo Wins Best Goaltender at AHL Skills Competition

Have we mentioned he's just 20? Karri Ramo continued to expand his reputation as a wunderkind tonight in winning the Top Goaltender Award at the AHL Skills Competition. Ramo tied for best in the competition with 15 saves including 7 of 10 in the rapid fire, 3 of 3 in the 3-on-0 event and 4
5 of 6 in the breakaway event. Congratulations to Karri on another great night in an already great rookie season.

AHL Game Night 1/26: Devils at Falcons

It makes me sick to my stomach to see the Falcons blow a 3-0 lead.

LOW-5
SPR-3

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss and his season record (13-14-0) now falls under .500 for the first time since October. Norm Milley led the Falcons with 1 goal and 1 assist while Daniel Corso had 2 assists. Eric Healey and Andre Deveaux had the other Falcons goals and Doug O'Brien, Adam Henrich and Andy Delmore had individual helpers. Milley was named third star of the game.

Instead of leapfrogging Portland into 5th in the division and keeping pace 4 points back of the final Atlantic Division playoff spot, the Falcons have dropped 6 points out of the playoffs and just 1 point out of the Atlantic Division basement. Tonight's game was the first of a five game spot in the schedule where Springfield looked to have some winnable games, but the third period collapse against Lowell seems an ominous sign.

AHL Game Night 1/24: Falcons at Monarchs

Unfortunately, this Falcons team just doesn't have a second line to speak of, and it's very difficult for them to come from 2 goals down as a result.

SPR-2
MAN-4

Karri Ramo stopped 28 of 31 shots faced in the loss. Springfield got 1 goal and 1 assist from Daniel Corso and a pair of helpers from Eric Healey. The other Falcons goal came from a suddenly red hot Doug O'Brien who has had goals in three of the last four games. Norm Milley also chipped in an individual helper.

First Period
SPR O'Brien, (5) (Corso, Healey), 4:14 (PP)

AHL Game Day 1/21: Falcons at Wolf Pack

If Ramo got shot at any more in this game, someone would've owed him a medal.

SPR-1
HFD-2

Karri Ramo stopped 53 of 55 shots faced in the loss as the Falcons were outshot 55-22 including 19-5 in the decisive final period. For his Herculean efforts, Ramo was named second star of the game. The lone Falcons goal came on the power play from Doug O'Brien off assists from Marek Kvapil and Blair Jones. As unholy as the shot totals were in the game, they were just one savvy play from the veteran line away from stealing a point which isn't bad for their third game in three nights.

The loss puts the Falcons 2 points back behind the final playoff spot in the Atlantic Division at 22-22-1. The Falcons will face division leading Manchester on Wednesday and a struggling Philadelphia club on Saturday. From here on out every point matters.

First Period
SPR O'Brien, (4) (Kvapil, Jones), 10:46 (PP)
HFD Callahan, (26) (Immonen), 15:19

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
HFD Baranka, (3) (Dawes, Degon), 6:55 (PP)
