Chiefs fall in OT.
Brady Greco scored his first professional goal. Unfortunately, ECHL.com's scoresheet doesn't tell much else, other than the fact David Currie was in net. Will post a full box score when it becomes available.
Hard to believe the Lightning actually trailed in this game early in the third.
Tarnasky and Artyukhin were effective in limited ice time. Artyukhin with his first NHL point assisting on Andreychuk's game winning goal. Paul Ranger returned with 13:57 of ice time, 1 takeaway, 3 giveaways, 2 blocked shots and a -1 rating. I thought he struggled a bit at times. It might be considered natural that he wasn't as aggressive as usual given what he's been through. Artyukhin and Tarnasky each got a shade under 5 and a half minutes of ice time, both +1, and Evgeny landed 2 hits on the game.

Fran Sypek speculates that with Brady Greco being sent down to Johnstown of the ECHL that defenseman Todd Rohloff is likely close to returning to the lineup for the Falcons.ff was injured in Springfield's season opener when a hit from behind led to an awkward legs first spill into the end boards. Greco will be a welcome addition to a Johnstown club that is in need of a competent puckmoving defenseman.
Evgeny Artyukhin and Nick Tarnasky are slated to be recalled tomorrow for the Lightning's game against the New Jersey Devils. They could be joined in the lineup by defenseman Paul Ranger who returned to practice Monday after suffering a hairline jaw fracture and a concussion at the point of Eric Boulton's elbow in Atlanta.
