AHL/ECHL Monday mentions, Feb 11

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.

Mug safety and other thoughts

Something, presumably not grave, happened to the Sharks number one goalie yesterday in practice.  I will assume it had nothing to do with a baseball bat:

@PollakOnSharks: “Change in net: #Sjshark Niemi dinged up in practice and Tyson Sexsmith recalled from WOR to serve as Greiss’s back-up tonight vs. DAL.”

If you’ve been following Twitter news about Alex Stalock, you might wonder why the Sharks would fly Sexsmith all the way out here and send Nitty back to Worcester instead of just bringing Stalock over from Stockton.  Sure, Sexsmith is higher in the depth chart but all that to and fro air travel is hardly a sound ecological strategy.  Luckily, I stumbled on an answering machine tape out in Stockton that recorded this recent phone call:

“Hi, Dan, Doug here.  How are you this morning?”
“No.”
