Devils Win, Fight In My Absence

Don’t get used to all this winning and fighting, people.  I expect to be back for Friday.

Seriously though, the Trenton Devils pulled out a 2-1 win over Johnstown last night.  Kevin Cormier also made his first attempt to decapitate someone with his fists at SBA as well. 

Here’s the game recap…

(PR) Charlie Effinger’s 29 saves and goals by New Jersey natives Matt Radoslovich and Jim Henkel gave the Devils a 2-1 win over the North Division leading Johnstown Chiefs on Friday night.

The Devils broke through 7:54 into the game on an odd-man rush started by a Matt Cohen pokecheck. The loose puck went to Dave Leaderer, who led an odd-man rush into the Chiefs zone and dropped a pass to Jeff Prough at the left circle. Prough fired the puck, giving up a rebound to Radoslovich who buried the puck into the net, his third tally of the season.

In the second period, the Devils capitalized on a two-man advantage as Matt Cohen fired a puck from the high slot towards the net. The puck was deflected into the goal by Henkel, who was credited with his fourth goal of the season at 4:17.

The Chiefs fired back later in the period as Mike Bartlett rifled a shot from the blue line past Effinger for the Chiefs’ only goal of the night at 12:11.

Effinger held his ground for the rest of the game, and was dazzling in the third period by stopping all of Johnstown’s 13 shots in the frame. Effinger earned a win in his third straight start for his efforts.

The Devils outshot the Chiefs 39-30, and Trenton finished the game 1-for-6 on the power play.

    Smitty started today at Elmira. And much to my surprise, he won. Do you believe in miracles?
