Another Game, Another Loss For Trenton

That’s seven losses in their last eight games.  They’ve been outscored 35-19 in that stretch.  All focal points of my game story, which you can read in tomorrow’s Trentonian.

Stay tuned for audio, photos and shootout videos…

— In the audio with Rick Kowalsky, which I’ll upload in a little bit, he praises Gerald Coleman for his strong play after a rough start in South Carolina.  Would have to agree with him.  Thought Coleman had a strong game (my three stars ballot was GWG-Smith-Coleman) and perhaps more importantly, I thought he showed that he’s still tough to beat on his glove side…seemed like he made quite a few glove saves tonight.

— Discipline is still not a strong suit of this team sometimes.  Both Andy Thomas and Chris Murray took some pretty questionable penalties tonight in that department.

— With that said, I think the D as a whole played a really strong game tonight.  Gaps were good, lot of blocked shots, etc.

— Justin Coutu (lower body) and Dan Eves (upper body) are both expected to return on Saturday.

— I think we’ve officially reached the point where we can stop calling the amount of people that show up to these games a crowd.  This was, at best, a small gathering.

— Lots of interesting happenings around the division.  Michael Teslak got assigned to Wheeling by the Flyers, which left a spot open for Elmira.  They picked up Julien Ellis off of waivers from Kalamazoo, so he’ll now form a tandem with P.O. Pelletier.  And Johnstown deal Jarret Konkle to the Jackals for Chanse Fitzpatrick.

    Gotta say, that turned out to be a pretty good game after a rough start. Still can’t abide the pa doofus, but I badly needed to be entertained tonight and that need was met.

    Pender ties the game and doesn’t get at least third star? Bleh. Poor T-Devils don’t have a home rink, do they?

    Anyway, nice write-up, thanks for sharing the photos! Where’s the link to the Trentonian story?

    BTW, TDevils site’s flaky this morning, instead of the index page’s content I get “Database Error Occured: Got error 28 from storage engine” below the top border. Hmm.

    Pender was a minus in the game, and I thought both goaltenders overshadowed his play…the actual three stars ended up being all Cyclones, actually.

    I don’t think the Trentonian story is online. I know it’s in print, as I have two copies on my desk.

    Been pretty hard on Pender but to his credit he scored after getting lit up the previous shift being driven halfway through the end boards. Still odds are he’s the odd man out if Coutu returns as expected tomorrow.
