AHL/ECHL Monday Mentions, Feb 25

AHL:

The Worcester Sharks started the weekend badly but it ended well.  Friday they lost at home, 7-2 to the Manchester Monarchs.  Worcester goals were scored by Matt Tennyson (PPG, Irwin, Kearns) and Jon Matsumoto (Kearns, Doherty).  Harri Sateri made 24 saves on 31 shots.  The power play went 1/3, the penalty kill 4/5.  Everyone who suited up for the Monarchs scored, so I'm going to skip them.  (Not really, only 1/3 of them not counting the goalie, and even he got an assist.  I'm still skipping them.  If you really must see the scoring carnage, go to the AHL site.)

As mentioned, things got better from there, with the Sharks winning Saturday 4-1, again at home, this time against the Portland Pirates.   Worcester goals were scored by: Danny Groulx (Tennyson, Oleksuk), Bracken Kearns(13) (SHG, McCarthy), Jimmy Bonneau(1), Matt Tennyson(5) (Livingston, Viedensky). Worcester's power play was an abysmal 0/6, but their penalty kill was perfect at 6/6.  Stalock made 36 saves for the win.  His shutout was spoiled in the third period by Portland's Phil Lane(5) (Klinkhammer).  For Portland, Mike Lee made 11 saves on 14 shots, and Louis Domingue made 22 saves on 23 shots.

AHL:

Last week, the Worcester Sharks played two games in Newfoundland against the Ice Caps.  The Sharks won both games, 3-2 and 4-0.

Tuesday's game was a nail-biter.  Daniil Tarasov opened the scoring at 1:32 of the first with assists from Tim Kennedy and Bracken Kearns.  The Sharks gave up a short-handed goal to Jason Jaffrey (assist to Maxime Macenauer) in the middle of that period.  Then the teams went scoreless through the second, each team taking an assortment of penalties.  At 6:31 of the third period, Jaffrey scored a power play goal for St. John's (assists to Raymond Sawada and Derek Meech).  The Sharks didn't get that goal back until 16:42, with a power play goal from Bracken Kearns (assists to Tim Kennedy and Denny Urban).  Less than two minutes later, Tarasov scored the game winner with 1:31 left in the game (assists to Kearns and Kennedy).  The Sharks scored on one power play out of three and they killed four of five penalties.  Harri Sateri made 30 saves for the win, Eddie Pasquale made 29 saves for the Ice Caps.

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.

Try, try again: Bulls get it right the second time around

I attended the Bulls game as a ticket holder last Sunday with a bunch of friends.  We had a wonderful time, though watching the Bulls get beaten by Bakersfield put a damper on it.  I went ahead and bought an orange hoodie.  I don't buy much fan gear but I can always use another hoodie.  I spent yesterday afternoon curled up in a blanket wearing that hoodie watching Chicago beat the Kings before NBC let me watch the Flyers lose.  On my way to SF, I got to listen to Worcester lose to the Booshed-up Phantoms too.  I started the day in a bad mood, those games did not help.

The Bulls went to Stockton Friday with a revamped roster, working four new players into the mix.  They play Stockton again today, making three in a row against the same team.  The new Bulls lost that first game to Stockton.  The team wasn't all there though: Scott Langdon, Alternate Captain and much relied-on defenseman, was serving the second of a two game suspension.  His absence was felt.  For the second game in a row, goalie Taylor Nelson was pulled after a brutal quartet of goals against, to be replaced by Bryan Hince.  For a more thorough review of that game, I refer you to someone who was there: Paul Gackle.

Saturday,  Taylor Nelson started in goal again.  Curcio put Galiardi, Sivak and Dean Ouellet on a line together again.  Morrison, Trudeau and Christian Ouellet made up another line.  The change Curcio did make was to go with five defensemen instead of six.  That made sorting out the pairings a little difficult for me, like guessing a 5-digit lock combination.  Likewise the lower forward lines, with two additional players to rotate in... I was at a loss to keep track.   It didn't matter.  The Bulls had their game on last night.
