The adjustment period for Gabe Winer to the pros? Apparently, about one game.
Gabe Winer with a 39 save shutout in just his second professional game. The Chiefs were outshot 39-19. Adam Henrich had the game winning goal for Johnstown and Andre Deveaux had an assist on Randy Rowe's third period insurance marker.

One night removed from his first AHL shutout Jonathan Boutin was run early after one period allowing 3 goals on 8 shots faced. He was relieved by Morgan Cey whose AHL debut went less than swimingly allowing 4 goals on 18 shots faced. Timo Helbling scored the Falcons' lone goal on assists by Norm Milley and Doug O'Brien. O'Brien now has 28 points in 64 games this season. Brian Eklund got revenge on his old mates stopping 21 of 22 for Providence. Couldn't stop a beach ball two months ago, but I digress.
