    Brkin was absolutely the difference. Could have easily lost. I wouldn't call the second period a stout defensive effort as we were again guilty of too many turnovers in transition.

    The problem with playing that way is you will only win when your goalie plays lights out (like last night). My expectation is that a goalie won't play like that enough to win enough games. We need to tighten up like we did vs Niagara so we can win even when our goalie isn't lights out.

    If we turn over the puck too much and lose, is it the goalie's fault?

    Gerry's comments on the radio made it sound like they played well defensively as a whole and Coach Dean said that the team made good decisions with the puck in his postgame interview.

    I wasn't able to watch the game, so I'll have to defer to you regarding the turnovers.

    Overall though, I think giving up less than 30 shots on a back to back on the longest road trip in the entire league is a pretty solid effort. That's right in line with our season average of 29.4 against a good offensive team.

    and when we blame goaltending for all our woes does that make us an attractive destination for a 17 year we are trying to recruit from the other side of the planet?

    Yes, I didn't mean that the whole game was like that, just the second. I do recall Gerry mentioning poor turnovers during the second. But certainly difficult to follow along with only the radio.

    Sloppy sections are a part of any game, even in past years when we were atop the standings. Erie gave up a lot of good chances too, but we stepped up in the third when it counted, despite being tired. Good effort from everyone against a team that we'll be looking to pass in the standings in the coming games.

    Nice start by the Hounds. Johnston and Pytlik make it 2-0 early.

    Edit: Now Carroll to make it 3-0 and Edmonds get the hook only 9 mins into the game.

    Edit: Carroll with a lazy neutral zone hook. Thought he had corrected that part of his game. Leads to the teddy bear toss PPG goal for Washkurak.

    Probably best road trip of the year, could we have turned the corner as a team. Wednesday against Sudbury will be a good indicator.

    Sudbury is not special. Look at their GF and GA. Win ,loss record is nothing great either.

    I look at it 2 ways
    1st he is not in there plans in the future because of Malik
    2nd they feel they have to play Brekin because we need points to make up lost ground and he gives them the best chance for 2 points

    My understanding is that it's both. I'm not sure that Taylor plays another game with this team. He had his opportunity to shine and played very poorly., which is unfortunate.

    Fairly similar, but ours is a several goals better. We also give up 4 fewer shots per game.

    Next week's homestand is going to be big. The game against Erie could be our chance to move into a playoff spot. Then we can set our sights on tracking down our division foes. Somewhat surprisingly, Saginaw is only 6 points ahead and Flint 8.

    Shouldn't sell out. I think most visitors sit in 110 - 116 so you can see the Wolves twice on Offense. Park in the mall parking lot for free.

    ADULT $24.13
    CHILD $12.66
    SENIOR $20.34
    STUDENT $20.34

    come on down! stay away from the arena pizza, and our locally brewery Outspoken is highly recommended.
