AHL Game Night: 1-23-16 Crunch at Senators

Season-high point streak for the Crunch.

SYR-3
BNG-2

Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the victory.

First Period
SYR McGinn, (15) (Peca, Taormina), 9:28

SYR Taormina, (8) (DeAngelo), 9:21

Matt Taormina and Tye McGinn were the game's first and third stars. Anthony DeAngelo was just a goal away from the Gordie Howe hat trick, as he had two helpers, including one on the GWG, and a fight in a very full Third Period for the highly touted prospect. It was DeAngelo's second fighting major as a pro after he had his first earlier this month against Toronto. Slater Koekkoek broke a 10 game streak of games without points with the goal to tie the game up the contest in the Third.

NHL Game Night: 1-23-16 Lightning at Panthers

Lightning winning streak snapped in front of "full house" in Sunrise.

TB-2
FLA-5

Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 30 shots for the loss before giving way to Andrei Vasilevskiy, who stopped all 4 shots he faced in the Third Period.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
8:50 FLA Huberdeau (8), (Barkov, Ekblad)
12:36 FLA Bjugstad (9), (Huberdeau)(PP)
15:56 FLA Smith (15), (unassisted)
17:33 FLA Trocheck (13), (Shaw, Jokinen)

Third Period
5:39 TB Hedman (4), (Johnson, Kucherov)(PP)
15:52 FLA Campbell (4), (Bjugstad, Jagr)(EN)
18:31 TB Brown (4), (Boyle)

The Lightning were probably due for a little stock correction, and unfortunately it came tonight in a pretty big divisional game. Obviously, things came off the rails in the Second Period, compounded by some good puck luck for the Panthers that ultimately doomed the whole endeavor. Burn the tape, I say. The big thing is to not allow your loss after a long winning streak to balloon into a losing streak the way Chicago did when they went down to Sunrise last night. Get the focus and jump back and move on.

So with that said, rather than lambaste the team, I'll take this opportunity to have a little fun with the Florida Panthers organization. You see, the Panthers announced a sell out tonight... but anyone with two eyeballs saw a half empty arena. Yes, with a Saturday night contest with the Panthers in first place facing off against the team in second in the Atlantic Division and a playoff atmosphere on the ice, Panther Nation, stayed home. Mind you, Panther Nation is a lot like the Lock Ness monster and the sasquatch, so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised they were difficult to see through the forest of empty red seats. I remain amazed that market still has a franchise given that it's even more deserving of a relocation dirt nap than Atlanta was, at this stage, but I digress. The really amazing thing to me is that the Panthers broadcast team of "Goldie" and "Peanut Butter" Potvin decided to crow at length about the Panthers winning in front of this amazing "full house" in Sunrise. Baghdad Bob would've been proud.

Gentlemen, if I may...

When Kenny Rogers, as Brady Hawkes in The Gambler Part III: The Legend Continues, had 3 aces and 2 kings, THAT was a full house.

When President Obama gave his State of the Union address before the entire Legislative Branch of the United States government and numerous other invited dignitaries and guests, THAT was a full House.

When Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and John Stamos raised three adorable young girls (two out of the three, anyway) in a house in San Francisco that there's no way in hell they could plausibly afford, THAT was a TV show called Full House.

STOP LYING and self-aggrandizing about how you had a sell out and played your game in front of a bristling, bustling "full house." We all know better. That's just SO Panthers. You win back-to-back home games against last year's Cup finalists, which should be your crowning moment of glory (supplanting your near annual trip to the front row of tables at the June draft) and what do you do? Put on the clown shoes... again. I suppose at least this time you didn't reach for the opaque plexiglass. Silver linings.

Nikita Nesterov was -2 with 2 shots and 3 hits in 15:10. It seemed like Cooper was trying to get him out with the Filppula line in front of him as a security blanket defensively, but that line got run roughshod over them tonight and therefore Nesterov was spending too much of the night on the run in his own zone. He doesn't excel with a guy on his back in his own end. He did, at least, draw a penalty with a good individual effort of his own on a rush in the First Period, so there's that.
