Game 6: In-Game Thread

Third Period: Amazing.  Amazing they came back, amazing they’re even in the game.  Dave Caruso’s made 50 saves in 60 minutes.  He’s absolutely saved their bacon tonight.  Gwinnett took their collective foot off the gas pedal in the third as well, however…and Tony Zancanaro and J.S. Berube made them pay.

Second Period: First off, the Rubiks Cube got hosed in the costume contest.  Secondly, this time is who we thought they were after two periods.  38 shots allowed through two.  38 shots!  Gwinnett is skating all over and around these guys, and even Chris Poli burned his old boys with a second period goal to make it 2-0.  Yikes.  Caruso’s been very, very good…but there’s not much he can do.  He can’t score.  That’s what they need right now…badly.  Somehow, one goal gets them right back in it.

First Period: Well, that turned messy quickly.  Trenton’s defense pretty much melted 14 seconds into the game, leaving Dave Caruso out to dry on an easy rebound goal by Tim Filangieri.  Afterwards, it pretty much degenerated into a “who has the best special teams” contest, and both teams stayed off the scoresheet for the remainder of the first 20 minutes.

Already 24 minutes in penalties (with no fights) and we’re only through one period here.  And if you’re wondering who the guy whose Stanley Cup ring is blinding you in the elevator…that’s Grant Marshall.  Or maybe that was just me wondering that.

6:55 PM — I think Matt Lombardi’s the scratch, if my peek at the ECHL official roster sheet is accurate.

Not sure what’s going in here, but at the very least, you guys can use this is an open thread to discuss the game.  I can only be so lazy, so I’ll be sure to weigh in as often as I can.

    Well that first one took me by surprise. That was a very strange period. Ref should just let one big beatdown occur so everyone can settle down.

  2. Langhorne Devil Says:

    Very heavy officiating. I’ve been at much dirtier games with only a fraction of the penalties dished out.

    We don’t look too bad, I just wish we would shoot more, far too many open looks not taken.

    It’s a product of yesterday. It was very chippy and there weren’t a lot of calls…definitely some carryover from that.

  4. Trentondevilsfan Says:

    Wasn’t THAT bad though. It’s made this game beyond tedious.

  5. titans04 Says:

    A total of 16 shots after 2 with how many pls have we had?

    If guys like Prough, Akeson and Zancanaro aren’t going to give us much on offense we’re in trouble.

    Like Southerns game though especially for a rookie.

    Poli’s shot if you can call it that should have never gotten past Coutu and Caruso.

    No doubt that Berube is a cut above the rest of the prospects.

  6. Langhorne Devil Says:

    That was painful – especially the 5 mins after the goal.

  7. Trentondevilsfan Says:

    Well. Here we go, hope it’s better than the coma-inducing second.

  8. titans04 Says:

    0/16 and counting. Mike ask Dean if he thinks we should start throwing it behind the net more it seems to be working well and has lead to zero quality scoring chances.

    Nice job by the ref calling everything in sight but the hit on Kang. Glad to get a point out of this one.
