…And 2 Points On Saturday

Here come the Trenton Devils.

Chris Poli’s return paid dividends for the second night in a row, as he scored a hat trick to lead the T-Devils past the Johnstown Chiefs, 6-2, last night.

The T-Devils went 4-for-9 on the power play, and Dave Caruso has clearly emerged as the #1 goaltender after back-to-back wins, including a 41 save performance last night.

Both Matt Vokes and Dan Charleston added three assists as well.  Trenton is now seven points out of a playoff spot, and return home later today at 4 PM for a HUGE game against the Wheeling Nailers, who currently hold the eighth playoff position.

    Whew! You’re still out there!

    AWESOME for Poli to get a hat trick! Of course it’s a road win so there will be nothing in the local media, right? Or do they just not post all the profoundly wonderful T-Devils coverage online?

    In Lowell, Felice was the EBUG again tonight. Corrente and Davison were both out, injured in Friday night’s game. Mills was injured right at the end of Saturday’s game, “upper body” I think but looked very painful, run hard into the corner and didn’t get up until after the Electrolux had left the scene. Sestito was a scratch, of course don’t know healthy or injured, missed his grit and his face-off wins. And nobody would ‘fess up about Frazee, the U-Mass Lowell PA Guy didn’t mention him when he announced the scratches. Cohen, Flynn, and Nagy were in tonight, Stoesz and Prough were scratched again, as was Halischuk. They have off until Friday night, a little time to rest and heal. They were 0-for-8 on the powerless play, kinda looked like the Electrolux just stopped calling penalties on the other team ’cause Lowell obviously didn’t know what to do with the puck when they had the man advantage.

    Glad to see Prough did well the last two games.

    Is Castonguay as invisible as he looks in all the box scores?

    Took a few days off to have a social life haha…but yes, I’m back. Looking forward to Sunday’s game.

    Casty invisible? No way. Just centering the fourth line, with Robitaille and either Stoesz if he’s playing, or chop suey if he’s not. He’s all over the ice, winning face-offs, digging and shoving, could take a couple more shots but mostly he’s on shut-down duty, a lot of two-way work but not a lot of scoring chances. I’d like to see what he can do at center between Swift and Perks on the PP, since that line did zippo on a dozen shifts last night.

    Prough… was stuffed onto the 4th line Wednesday, didn’t get a lot of ice time but certainly had a lot of energy 😉 Depending how badly Millsy was hurt last night — and my spy says it looked like a possible broken wrist or arm — youse might not get Prough back for a while now 😦

    I would have thought that was Nagy’s role. Based on what we saw here I would say Eric’s strengths were on the other side of the puck.

    Last night’s 4th line was mostly Robitaille-Castonguay-Nagy, come to think of it. But you know the Devils… if you’re an offensive star, they want you to work on your defensive game…
