Hot on the heels of the Sea Wolves first win streak of the season, coinciding with the assignment of Ryan Munce and the return of Stan Lascek from pre-season injury, perhaps it's time to review the Lightning ECHL stats thus far:
F Radek Smolenak: 15gp; 5-7-12; -2; 10 PIM; 2 PPG
F Stanislav Lascek: 2gp; 2-3-5; +3; 2 PIM
F Marek Kvapil: 6gp; 1-3-4; -1; 7 PIM
D Jay Rosehill: 2gp; 0-0-0; Even; 6 PIM
F Zbynek Hrdel: 5gp; 0-0-0; -2; 0 PIM
F Brandon Elliott: 11gp; 0-0-0; -2; 32 PIM
G Ryan Munce: 2gp; 125 mins; 2-0-0-0; 2.88 GAA; 0.934 SV%
Lightning prospect defenseman Jay Rosehill smacking around Hershey agitator Louis Robitaille like a little... well, this is a family website.
Lightning prospects yet to make a splash statistically... unless you call 9 shots in 2 games by Smolenak a splash. No? I didn't think so, either.
Ex-Lightning prospect Morgan Cey allows 4 goals on 26 shots, although 3 of FLA's goals came on the power play. For the two game series, 6 of the Blade's 10 goals came on the man advantage, and another came short-handed.
Ouch. And head coach Stefan Walby waited two years for this? Mississippi was 0 for 4 on the power play and allowed a short-handed goal. Meanwhile the Sea Wolves PK was 5 of 8.
Ex-Lightning prospect Morgan Cey torched for 6 goals on 42 shots, but 4 of the 6 goals were scored by the Florida special teams.
With 3-1/2 minutes left, Brandon Elliot was tagged with the 2-5-10 (Roughing, FM, GM) in an attempt to save the Wolves a bit of face.
