AHL Game Night 1/26: Devils at Falcons

It makes me sick to my stomach to see the Falcons blow a 3-0 lead.

LOW-5
SPR-3

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss and his season record (13-14-0) now falls under .500 for the first time since October. Norm Milley led the Falcons with 1 goal and 1 assist while Daniel Corso had 2 assists. Eric Healey and Andre Deveaux had the other Falcons goals and Doug O'Brien, Adam Henrich and Andy Delmore had individual helpers. Milley was named third star of the game.

Instead of leapfrogging Portland into 5th in the division and keeping pace 4 points back of the final Atlantic Division playoff spot, the Falcons have dropped 6 points out of the playoffs and just 1 point out of the Atlantic Division basement. Tonight's game was the first of a five game spot in the schedule where Springfield looked to have some winnable games, but the third period collapse against Lowell seems an ominous sign.

AHL Game Night 1/24: Falcons at Monarchs

Unfortunately, this Falcons team just doesn't have a second line to speak of, and it's very difficult for them to come from 2 goals down as a result.

SPR-2
MAN-4

Karri Ramo stopped 28 of 31 shots faced in the loss. Springfield got 1 goal and 1 assist from Daniel Corso and a pair of helpers from Eric Healey. The other Falcons goal came from a suddenly red hot Doug O'Brien who has had goals in three of the last four games. Norm Milley also chipped in an individual helper.

AHL Game Day 1/20:

Somebody forgot to tell the Falcons to play dead.

AHL Game Night 1/13: Sharks at Falcons

Officially in free fall.

WOR-4
SPR-2

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 28 shots before leaving the game for Jonathan Boutin with a little over 10 minutes left in the game. Boutin stopped 2 of 2 shots faced. Daniel Corso had 1 goal and 1 assist and was named second star of the game. Sylvain Dufresne had the other Falcons goal while David Spina and Andy Rogers had individual assists.

The Falcons have now lost four in a row and six of their last seven games. With Norm Milley and Justin Keller out of the lineup they've been reduced to a one line team and other than David Spina none of the supporting cast has really stepped up to fill the void. Blair Jones? Zero shots on goal. Marek Kvapil? -3. Something's got to give.

First Period
SPR Dufresne, (2) (Spina, Corso), 12:07

Second Period
WOR Darche, (25) (Mink, Stafford), 9:02
WOR Leisenring, (1) (Bernier), 18:02
