Five Different Devils Score In Win Over Cincy

(PR) The Trenton Devils won their second in a row over the Cincinnati Cyclones with a road victory Thursday night, 5-3.

Matt Radoslovich put the Devils on the board 9:09 into the contest. The New Jersey native deflected a Justin Coutu shot between the legs of Ryan Nie for his 11th goal of the season.

The Cyclones tied the game on the power play, as Matt Syroczynski knocked in a loose puck at 13:16.

Another Coutu shot led to a Devils goal 62 seconds later, as the defenseman threw the puck towards the net where it deflected off the stick of Brad Snetsinger, who became the fourth T-Devil to notch 20 goals this season with the tally. The Devils took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

The Devils carried their momentum into the second period, and struck quickly with a pair of goals. Eric Castonguay notched a point in his eighth straight game with a laser from the top of the far circle 43 seconds in the period.

Just 42 seconds later, Jeff Prough scored another spectacular goal for his 30th of the season. Prough handled the puck at the bottom of the far circle, spun around and squeezed a shot in between the legs of Nie, who left the game after allowing the goal in favor of Loic Lacasse.

In the third period, the Cyclones started to take control, and pulled to within a goal with 3:31 left in regulation. The comeback was thwarted when Jim Henkel backhanded the puck from his own blue line into the empty net with 43.2 seconds remaining to seal the game for the Devils.

Henkel, Radoslovich, and Snetsinger each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who moved into second place in the ECHL’s North Division as they jumped over idle Elmira and Johnstown.

    Crazy finish. They need to work on that killer instinct a bit. I’m all for not taking untoward chances with a 4-1 lead but just turtling ain’t gonna get it done either. They were fortunate as Cincy’s a good comeback team. At the end though it’s 2 big points and hopefully they can learn the lesson.

    Prough’s just a monster out there. Nice for Rado to pop a goal in, he’s had a nice season.

    Lowell has to sign Prough and Dylan because they could have a future. They hung in the third true, Cinncy dominated the third and their effort is to be expected since they are the Champ from last year. Desharnais may not be in Cinncy anymore but they have pride. GREAT WIN at the end of the day and Roper did another great job.

    There’s something wrong if Prough and Castonguay aren’t in the A next season, both are extremely talented players that could provide the scoring punch that Lowell so desparately needs. Dylan I think needs another year of seasoning, though for a 19-20 year old, he plays well enough at this level, and an upgrade over most of the talent from last season (I’m looking at you, Bill LeClerc).

    Third period was a tough listen since I was afraid they’d blow it. I’ve only started listening to games recently and wish I’d done so since the beginning of the year. Roper’s fantastic! Hard to believe since he’s young as well but biases aside, I’d take him over any PBP guy in our division.

    Jeff Prough is the one player this team absolutely cannot afford to lose…even when he isn’t showing up on the scoresheet, the way he creates chances for himself and others is very impressive. His creativity and wrist shot are both very, very impressive. He’s Brad Snetsinger with a better wrist shot and without the prospect status…although Snets is a little better at controlling the puck, though you could make a case he overhandles it at times.

    As for Paul Roper, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with him in a few different beats, and he’s very good at what he does. It’s nice to be able to call him a friend, and I look forward to seeing where his career takes him.

    The big thing keeping Castonguay out of the AHL is his work ethic. He’s a game changer with skills no doubt, but he takes too many shifts/periods/games off.

    Prough has come so far since the first of the year. Though he’s not the playmaker Snetsinger is.

    Totally agree about Quaile needing at least to start next season in Trenton – how LeClerc has managed to last an entire season in Mississippi is beyond me.
