The Blue Jacket affiliate Springfield Falcons have an action packed weekend in store for them. They have three games in a row lined up for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday night, the Falcons will travel to Providence, RI to take on the Bruins in a rematch of last Saturday’s 3-1 loss. Center Nick Drazenovic scored the lone goal for Springfield.
Following Friday night’s game, the Falcons will hop on the bus and travel back to Springfield to host the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Saturday and the Portland Pirates on Sunday.
Now with the NHL Lockout STILL looming over our heads, we continue to look at our prospects keeping their blades sharp down on the farm. What might be interesting to you is that in the Providence Bruins game, the Cam Atkinson, Ryan Johansen and Jonathan Audy-Marchessault was nonexistent. Instead, the second line of Matt Calvert, Thomas Kubalik and Drazenovic played well all night, often producing scoring chances and converting one in the first period.
Curtis McElhinney has been playing well for the Falcons. Playing all four games, McElhinney has posted a 1.76 goals against average, picking up a shutout along the way. UMass Amherst graduate and backup goalie PaulDainton is expected to play one game this weekend according to coach Brad Larsen.
