New Jersey Kovalchuks vs. Toronto Phaneufs

That’s where I’ll be, instead of working the Trenton Devils game tonight.  This was a scheduled off day for me, of sorts.  I was never supposed to work this game for The Trentonian, and I had the option of going to the Leafs-Devils game instead.

I initially wanted to go because I wanted to see Jonas Gustafsson, then I really wanted to go because I’d get to see Dion Phaneuf with the Leafs.  After deciding last night that I wouldn’t go because of the weather, my previously mentioned friend Matt offered me a ticket to the game this morning…and this, I’ll be seeing Mr. Gustafsson, Mr. Phaneuf and even Mr. Kovalchuk.

I’ll be back for the unbelievably ill-scheduled Sunday afternoon game against Elmira…not sure if the roster will have changed by then, but it seems to be status quo for tonight for the time being.  Patrick Davis got sent down to Lowell from New Jersey, so that may eventually create a trickle-down effect.

Wheeling comes into town on February 21st, and they just got Aaron Boogaard from WBS.  So if nothing else, that’ll be entertaining…

    How could you turn down an epic battle between Trenton and Reading? It only happens like 22 times a year.

    Enjoy your trek north Mike, hope your friend Matt offers up better seats than our good friend Lou.

    Still hope Kovalchuk blows out a knee on his first shift, but that’s just my bitterness showing.

    Looking forward to the fisticuffs between Hand and…., between Gallant (if he’s back in the lineup) and….., Spencer vs….and of course Boogaard vs………

    if it wasn’t so sad it would be funny, clearly there isn’t a highly producing forward that can be replaced in this lineup for a guy that would actually step up with even minimal success. The system is neutered hockey featuring undersized guys that get out hit game after game. Not a single forward that takes the ice looking to stir things up. Not that this team or the ever shrinking fan base needs a wake-up call or anything.

    JUMP FOR JOY, T-Devils fans! a SWEET 4-1 victory and the first against the purple plague this season! 56 shots… Just look at all those beautiful shots!

    Vokes: 8
    Ginant: 7
    Leaderer: 7
    Zancanaro: 6
    Eves: 6
    Combs: 5

    Akeson and Lee were the only guys without at least one official shot on net… Wow. Were all those tries really on target?

    The only blemish was the short-handed goal although the score sheet doesn’t tell half the story most nights, so dish up! What happened? Was it a fun game for all “2360” people in attendance?

    As for the call-ups… Meh. The Lowly Dweebles gave up a PAIR of empty-net goals tonight, only one got past Frazee but the team needs to re-calibrate those scopes, more than half their chances were off-target 😦 The 0-3 loss was ugly. So it was quite a thrill to look at the sheet and see the T-Devils won!

    Oops, my bad, can’t spell GINAND. Think his name’s jinxed, did ya notice the ECHL official scoresheet says he got the 1st star AND the 3rd star in that 6-3 win over Florida?

    Was a really good game, almost didn’t go because of the snow threat.

    Wow…I figured T-Devs would get ground up with the Zamboni snow against Reading….but they won 4-1? I KNEW I should have gone to that game
