AHL/ECHL Monday Mentions, March 11

AHL:

News that I completely missed last week: Sena Acolatse is back in the Worcester lineup, has been since March 1st.  I may be inattentive but I think that is exciting, awesome and a good thing for the Sharks.

Worcester only played two games since last Monday, a relatively leisurely schedule for the AHL.  Saturday, Sebastian Stalberg scored the only first period goal to give the Sharks the lead over the Providence Bruins.  The Sharks had a fair chance to take a two goal lead when James Livingston was awarded a penalty shot but Bruins' goalie Niklas Svedberg stopped that.  The Bruins came back in the second to score two power play goals and take the lead away.  A couple of minutes later, James Livingston tied the game back up.  In the third, the Bruins retook the lead and it wasn't until 19:00 of the regulation that John McCarthy tied it again.  The game went to a seven-round shootout that the Bruins won with goals from Craig Cunningham and Trent Whitfield.  The one Sharks shootout goal was scored by Denny Urban.

AHL/ECHL Monday mentions, Feb 18

AHL:

The Worcester Sharks played three road games last weekend, but only won one.  Friday, their seven power plays went scoreless against the Springfield Falcons (AHL affiliates of the Blue Jackets).  The Sharks killed seven of eight penalties.  The lone goal for the Sharks was scored by Daniil Tarasov, with assists to Danny Groulx and Adam Comrie.   It was Tarasov's fifth of the season.  Harri Sateri made 27 saves on 29 shots.  LW Tommy Grant and defenseman Denny Urban were second to Tarasov in shots on goal, with four each.

Saturday, the Sharks traveled to Glenns Falls to  play the Adirondack Phantoms (AHL affiliate of the Flyers).  They came away from that with a 3-2 win.  They scored on one of their two power plays, and killed four of five penalties.  Sharks goals were scored by Jon Matsumoto (PPG, Kearns, Urban), John McCarthy (Hamilton, Viedensky), and Freddie Hamilton (Groulx, McCarthy).  Alex Stalock made 26 saves on 28 shots for the win.

AHL/ECHL Monday mentions, Feb 4

AHL:

The performance of the Worcester Sharks recently inspired one of their close observers to tweet this:

@210Darryl: I think it's time for some changes for the #WorSharks...this team has way too much talent to be playing this poorly.

The Worcester Sharks only played two games last week, due in part to the AHL All Star break.   The first game was Friday in Portland, against the Phoenix Coyotes' AHL affiliate the Pirates.  They lost in a shootout, with goals from Tim Kennedy (PPG, assists to Tarasov and Kearns) and Daniil Tarasov (assists to Urban and Kennedy).  It was Kennedy's 13th goal of the season, Tarasov's 3rd.  Harri Sateri stopped 28 shots before the shootout, where he was beaten by the Pirates' Chris Brown.  Worcester's power play went 1/9, their penalty kill was 6/7.  Goals for the Pirates were scored by Rob Klinkhammer (assists to Lane and Sinkewich) and Ethan Werek (PPG, assists to Klinkhammer and Summers).  Pirates goalie Mike Lee made 36 saves for the win.

The game goes on: more to do in less time for Sharks

A couple of days ago we got news that Katie Moore, wife of Dominic, passed away.  I can't think of any words to make sense of this sorrow.  Dominic tweeted a few words yesterday:

@mooredom: I'd like to express our deep appreciation for the overwhelming care and sympathy we have received since my wife's passing on Monday. The example Katie displayed throughout her life and in particular during her illness is a source of continued strength and inspiration, as is the love and support of those around us. Donations can be made to the future Katie Moore Foundation at katiemoore.org

The outpouring of support and condolences has been recognized and appreciated, but I can't help thinking it is better that the family was able to go through the ordeal without any public attention.  I do think the hockey community gives people their space in such times, but on hearing the news I was reminded and glad of it.  In the case of such an awful loss, it is a good thing if the family can be together without distraction.  Healing thoughts to the family.

According to Doug Wilson, the Sharks don't anticipate many roster moves:

...with a 48-game season expected to begin Jan. 19, there's less time than usual for newcomers to become familiar with the Sharks' approach to the game and terminology used by the coaches. "We brought in 10 players a year ago," he said. "I wouldn't want to be bringing 10 players into a short and compressed season." -Mercury News

An ace that they can keep: Bulls shoot Eagles down

Before the game, I wondered if the Cow Palace audience would get to see a hat trick on Country & Western Night.  If they were wearing cowboy hats, this could pose a problem.  Cowboy hats are a lot more expensive than ball caps and heavier too.  Would people throw them?  It was a typical sort of jinx.  There was a hat trick, but from Colorado.  Joey Sides did score three goals for the Eagles, but it was not enough for them to win.  The Bulls managed to score four and they beat the Eagles for the first time.

The Bulls have had trouble winning when they don't score first.  They did it once before, back on November 9: Stockton scored first only to be taken apart for the rest of the game until it ended 4-1.  My memory of that is so hazy, the lack of multiple game recaps and no video for me to review is maddening.  How could I have not noticed the team winning without scoring first?  I have concluded that it must have been a fluky goal so strange that it failed to break the "score first or lose" curse.  Maybe it was off a Bulls player or even an own goal, though the recap from Stockton did not make it seem so.

In any case, the Bulls have had a whole lot of trouble winning games when they don't score first.  They have had as much trouble scoring at all against Colorado.   Wednesday's game showed a glimmer of hope, but still ended in a shootout loss.  So this is the mountain they had to climb, with omens casting shadows on the ice.

Bulls finish 4 at home, score 4 to win

Last night, the San Francisco Bulls beat the Stockton Thunder 4-3 in overtime.  It was their fourth of four games at home, the first of three games in three nights, the second and third to be played in Ontario and Bakersfield.

New things seen at last night's game: The Cube can be broken, and repaired quickly.  A shot from I'm not sure who in the first period went too high and hit the board right in the period number.  A panel was knocked loose but was as easily fixed during intermission.

Also new: Peter Sivak moved to the line with Justin Bowers and Dean Ouellet, and Jordan Morrison centered both Sharks forward prospects Marek Viedensky and Daniil Tarasov.  That second line scored the first goal of the game, credited to Tarasov, with the assist to Viedensky.  

Stockton's only goal before the third period was a power play goal, scored with only 13 seconds left on a double minor against Justin Bowers in the second.  When they say "the puck took a crazy bounce", they mean this one-- it took several pinball-like bounces before popping over Heemskerk's glove and into the net.  It really shouldn't have been a very disheartening goal-- bouncing plus four minute penalty kill should warrant some self-forgiveness.  Nevertheless, it put a damper on the Bulls.  The Bulls had outshot the Thunder in the first period but didn't do so again in the second or third.

Teddy Bear Toss at tonight’s SF Bulls game

The Bulls play the Colorado Eagles at the Cow Palace tonight.  Bring a teddy bear to toss, enjoy the game, forget your worries.  The game will be broadcast on Comcast Hometown Network, for those with access to that.  Otherwise, listen for free on KNBR.com or the Colorado feed on iHeart, or pay to watch on America One Sports.

Neither the SF Bulls nor the Worcester Sharks showed up on the transaction lists today, or since the December 1 recall of Mikael Tam to the AHL.

Daniil Tarasov did end up starting on a line with Justin Bowers and Dean Ouellet for Wednesday's game.  That worked out well and quickly, as he scored the first goal less than five minutes into the game.  Assists went to Bowers and defenseman Scott Langdon.  The Bulls went on to roll over Bakersfield for a final score of 4-1.  Two of the Bulls' goals came from Peter Sivak, the first on a power play in the first, assists to Viedensky and Tarasov.  His second was scored at even strength in the second, assist to Alex Tuckerman.  The fourth Bulls goal was scored by Dean Ouellet in the third, assists to Bowers and Tarasov.
