ECHL Game Night 2/28: Bombers at Chiefs

Roster upheval leads to a critical loss.

DAY-4
JHN-1

Morgan Cey allowed 4 goals on 31 shots in the loss. Randy Rowe had the only Chiefs goal off assists from Geoff Waugh and Dimitri Tarabrin. Johnstown's loss puts them three points behind Dayton for the final playoff spot in the North Division. And, with the Falcons recently calling up two of the team's scoring liners and now having their two highest scoring defensemen in Springfield, things look like the could get a little bleak.

First Period
JHN Rowe, (15) (Waugh, Tarabrin), 16:48

Second Period
DAY Herneisen, (14) (Farynuk), 4:24
DAY Konsorada, (11) (Walton, Kelly), 17:58

AHL Game Night 2/28: Falcons at Sharks

Just plain awful.

SPR-2
WOR-6

Karri Ramo allowed 6 goals on 43 shots before giving way to Jonathan Boutin who stopped 2 of 2 shots the rest of the way. Norm Milley and Daniel Corso each had 1 goal and 1 assist for the Falcons while Eric Healey added an individual helper, but with Nick Kuiper and Joe Rullier not in the lineup the Falcons were little match for the Sharks' onslaught tonight getting outshot a staggering 45-27. Milley managed to be named third star of the game, which is little consolation.

The Falcons are now an unlucky 13 games under .500 for the season.

First Period

Falcons Acquire Kuiper; Reunited with Rullier

The Springfield Falcons are reporting that the club has acquired defenseman Nick Kuiper from the Portland Pirates (AHL) in exchange for future considerations. The undrafted three year pro has split time between Manitoba (AHL) and Portland and the Augusta Lynx (ECHL) this season after spending two seasons with Norfolk (AHL) and a four year NCAA career with UMass-Amherst.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Kuiper is a solid stay-at-home defenseman and will be reunited in Springfield with fellow Manitoba/Portland blueliner Joe Rullier, who was acquired by Tampa from Anaheim at the NHL trade deadline for Doug O'Brien. In his eighth AHL campaign, the veteran Rullier is a tough physical defenseman and should step into the Springfield top defensive pairing, while Kuiper may see his time split between Springfield and Johnstown.
