Time to start a new winning streak.
Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 27 shots before being pulled in the third period for Jonathan Boutin who stopped 6 of 6 shots faced. Springfield, for whatever reason, struggled to get into the game in the first two periods and were outshot 26-12 through 40 minutes before putting together a decent third period to get the final total to 33-27, Lowell. Marek Kvapil and Eric Healey scored the Falcons' goals, both on the power play. For Kvapil, it is just his 3rd of the season, which is disappointing. Mike Egener, Andy Delmore, John Adams and Blair Jones had assists.
