Greetings all! Time again for the week in review. It was the last week of competition in the CHL’s regular season and a lot of team awards and playoff standings were handed out and announced.

We’ll start off in the AHL first, though. First up for the Springfield Falcons, on Wednesday it was announced that 2012 third round pick Joonas Korpisalo would be joining the Falcons as his season with Ilves having just completed (seems quicker than when they brought Anton Forsberg last season). With that, it was time for another round of Oscar Dansk in the ECHL in Kalamazoo but more on that later.

First up on Friday, the Falcons welcomed the worst team in the East, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The Falcons continued what has seemed like a trend lately by allowing the first goal before TJ Tynan scored his ninth of the season off his own rebound to make it 1-1. The Falcons allowed two third period goals and fell by a score of 3-1, Scott Munroe had 26 saves in the loss.

March 9-15 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Hello all – sorry or the delay but I’m back again for the usual week in review!

Starting off it was a rough week in Springfield as the Falcons went 1-2 and scored one goal…Im not kidding. First up against Hartford, the Falcons allowed the Pack to take a 1-0 lead late in the first before TJ Tynan scored his eighth goal of the season on a rebound to tie it. The game went to overtime and to the three on three portion of the overtime with Conor Allen winning it. Scott Munroe made 30 saves in the loss.

Let’s keep the next game brief – the Falcons lost 5-0 to Providence and Oscar Dansk made 29 saves. Next up was a game against Albany and it was a goalie duel going all the way to a shootout with no score before TJ Tynan and Sean Collins notched goals in the skills competition while Scott Munroe had 35 saves and stopped both Devil shooters.

The Falcons are hanging onto a playoff spot – they’re only a point behind sixth and seventh place and are up three on ninth place Worchester, but some help for the Falcons could be on the way. More on that later in this recap.

March 2-8 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Hello, all! Time for another CBJ prospect week in review. Quickly, Monday was the trade deadline with top prospect William Karlsson joining the franchise. I put my thoughts on him here.

Moving on to the AHL (where Karlsson was headed) it was a light week this week for the Falcons with only two games on tap. Starting off on Friday, the team was off to Providence for a game with the baby Bears. In the 4-1 loss, Michael Chaput scored his ninth of the season with TJ Tynan picking up his team leading 28th assist on the goal. Anton Forsberg was a late scratch and Scott Munroe made 33 saves in the loss. The Falcons closed out the week with a game against the Baby Pens who have the hottest goalie in the AHL leading the way. Rookie Matt Murray’s last four starts have been shutouts and he’s closing in on the AHL record. The Falcons allowed Murray to go ahead and set that record with the team waiting until 1:11 remaining in the game for their first point when Dana Tyrell scored the Falcons only goal on a shorthanded breakaway in the 4-1 loss. For the curious, the new record for Murray is now 304:11 TOI, during which he’s stopped 130 consecutive shots.

February 16-March 1 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Hello all sorry for the delay on updates, here. Either wordpress or my computer decided to crash just as I was about to finish last week’s review and since it was Sunday afternoon I decided to combine all the content and do one of my two week updates.

Starting off in Springfield as we always do, the Falcons opened up against the Hartford Wolfpack. Early in the first, Sean Collins got the puck from a board battle and drove to the net to make it 1-0. The Pack scored next before Dominic Monardo got on the board late in the second. Oscar Lindberg got the Pack’s next two goals including the overtime winner. In the loss Oscar Dansk made 24 saves.

Next, the Portland Pirates came to town for the Falcons annual Pink in the Rink Night. Early in the second Michael Chaput picked up the garbage on a Luke Adam shot but just 11 seconds later the Pirates tied it up. Later in the second the Falcons struck when Corey Cowick scored off a backhand to give the Falcons a lead that would last for about seven minutes before the Pirates would score. The Pirates scored again midway through the third to earn a 3-2 win. In the loss Scott Munroe made 24 saves.

Greetings all – time again for the week in review.

Starting off with the Falcons as we always do – the Birds opened the week in Manchester where the Falcons let the Monarchs roar out to a 3-0 lead before Dominic Monardo scored off a rebound 44 seconds after the Monarchs third goal. Late in the second, Mike Hoeffel scored to make it 4-2. Oscar Dansk made 25 saves in the loss.

Up next against Providence, the Falcons again fell behind early before Thomas Larkin tied it with a blast off a faceoff win. The game went to overtime, and a second overtime as well taking the play on ice to a three on three when Marko Dano drove to the net and Malcolm Subban stopped him, but Dana Tyrell picked up the rebound for the game winner. Scott Munroe stopped 14 of 15 in the victory.

January 5-11 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Posted by CBJProspects on January 11, 2015
Columbus Blue Jackets, Prospects / No Comments

Greetings all! back to some semblance of normalcy with the week in review.

Starting off in Springfield as we always do. First some news on Monday – the AHL announced its All Star rosters with Falcons defenseman Austin Madaisky and goaltender Anton Forsberg being named to the roster. The AHL does it backwards (or smarter?) compared to the NHL. They announce their roster first then have fans vote on the starters – you can vote here to get Anton and Austin in the starting lineup.

As far as on the ice goings on – the boys started off in a game against rival Providence where they picked up a 2-1 win. The Baby Bears opened the scoring in the first before the Falcons scored twice in the second period. Marko Dano scored his eighth of the season with Michael Chaput and Frederic St Denis picking up assists. Four minutes later, Adam Cracknell scored his first with the Falcons with Luke Adam and Kerby Rychel picking up assists. Anton Forsberg made 29 saves in the win – his 17th win of the season.

Up next against Hartford, TJ Tynan opened the scoring off a pretty passing sequence with Trent Vogelhuber and Ryan Craig. After a Dylan McIlrath goal, (I’m as surprised as all of you) Rychel scored his eighth of the season when he deflected a St. Denis shot to make it 2-1. After the Pack tied it, Madaisky gave the Falcons the lead when he snapped a shot home to make it 3-2 but the Pack tied it with only 35 seconds remaining. The Falcons would end up falling in overtime when one time Jacket (Traverse City only, but still) Marek Hrivik scored 4:30 into overtime. Oscar Dansk made 32 saves in the loss.

CBJ Prospect Week in Review/WJC Recap

Posted by CBJProspects on January 09, 2015
Prospects / 1 Comment

Greetings all –  I decided to post this a little later than usual so we could get a full recap of the World Junior Championships.

Starting off in Springfield as always, the Falcons opened 2015 in Portland for a game against the Pirates and ex Jacket Mike McKenna. The first period would be all Pirates as they would take a 3-0 lead before Lukas Sedlak scored his first career shorthanded goal. Almost exactly 10 minutes later, Frederic St Denis scored his second goal of the season before the Pirates notched two more to make it 5-2. Dana Tyrell got a late third period power play goal, and Austin Madaisky picked up an assist on both power play goals. Anton Forsberg made 27 saves in the loss.

Up next was a game against Worcester. The Birds spotted the baby Sharks a 2-0 lead before Marko Dano scored his seventh of the year. In the second period Trent Vogelhuber gathered a loose puck skating and was stopped but Marko picked up the rebound to make it 2-1. After another Sharks goal, Jamie Sifers scored early in the third but it was  the little Irishman who would tie it. TJ Tynan skated in through three Sharks to start  a sequence he would finish when Luke Adam found Tynan in front. The game went to a shootout with Kerby Rychel scoring the only goal of the shootout – clinching the victory. Oscar Dansk made 24 saves plus three more in the shootout for his fifth win of the season.

To close out the weekend the Falcons welcomed the top team in the East – the Manchester Monarchs. Adam opened the scoring with his fourth since joining the Falcons when he  took a pass from Frederic St Denis. In the third period after a scramble, Lukas Sedlak passed the puck to Josh Anderson who shot and picked up his own rebound to tie the game. The pride of Dublin, Ohio Trent Vogelhuber scored the game winner deflecting or picking up the rebound(hard to tell) of a Jamie Sifers shot. Anton Forsberg made 28 saves in his 16th win of the season.  Here’s Coach Bednar and Josh Anderson’s postgame comments after the Manchester game.

December 22-28 AHL/WJC Week in Review

Posted by CBJProspects on December 30, 2014
Columbus Blue Jackets, Prospects / No Comments

Hello all! It has been a light week in the world of prospects’ hockey so we’ll just be focusing on the Falcons and the four Jacket prospects taking part in the World Junior Championships.

Starting off in Springfield as we always do, the Falcons came out of the Christmas Break with every hockey player’s favorite thing: a three in three. Opening up the week in Hartford, the Falcons picked up a 2-1 shootout victory. Marko Dano scored the Falcons’ goal in regulation when my favorite first round pick to laugh at – Dylan McILOLrath (10th overall pick nothing but a goon) – tried to clear the puck but Ryan Craig deflected it to Marko who tied the game. TJ Tynan scored the only goal of the shootout. Anton Forsberg won his 14th win of the season with 28 saves and stops on all three Wolfpack shooters.

For the next game, Oscar Dansk returned to the Falcons crease with Forsberg in Columbus to back up Curtis McElhinney due to Sergei Bobrovsky’s illness. In the second period, with the Birds trailing 2-0, Kerby Rychel gathered a loose puck and found Josh Anderson in the slot. Anderson fired a shot home for his third in his last five games. Three minutes later, Frederic St Denis scored his first as a result of a board battle and a nice passing sequence by Rychel and Anderson. Reid Boucher scored four minutes later before Craig tied the game in the third period off a deflection of a Denny Urban point shot. Unfortunately, the Falcons lost when Joe Whitney scored 34 seconds into overtime. Oscar Dansk made 21 saves in the 4-3 loss.

To close out the weekend, the Falcons faced off against the Syracuse Crunch who had just had their 10 game winning streak snapped. Luke Adam opened the scoring just 39 seconds into the game when he tipped a Hubert Labrie point shot. After two Crunch goals, Adam struck again late in the second period picking up the rebound of a Frederic St Denis point shot. The game went to overtime with one time Junior Jacket Denny Urban scoring the game winner on his second try after getting the puck from Austin Madaisky. Forsberg would only make 15 saves in the win – his 15th.

Now on to the World Juniors.

December 15-21 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Posted by CBJProspects on December 22, 2014
Columbus Blue Jackets, Prospects / No Comments

Hello all and again Happy Holidays! It’s getting to the slow time of the year with junior and European teams either on or heading into their holiday/international tournament break so we’ll go with the updates on guys who are still playing.

Starting off in Springfield as we do, it was a two game road trip for the Falcons last week. They opened up in Binghamton – home of the baby Sens (coached by ex-Jacket Luke Richardson) in a scorefest. The Sens opened the scoring on a goal by the new guy (Daniel New that is). Minutes later Alex Grant scored before Luke Adam scored his first since being acquired from Buffalo. The Sens would score two more early in the second to end Anton Forsberg’s night. Josh Anderson helped stop the bleeding with his second in as many nights and then Dana Tyrell scored seven minutes later in his first game in almost a month. Ryan Craig notched his 10th of the season with only 40 seconds remaining to tie the game. 31 seconds into the third, OSU product Ryan Dzingel gave the Senators the lead with Trent Vogelhuber scoring just under two minutes later to tie it again. Midway through the third, Kerby Rychel hit home his third game winner of the season. Forsberg only stopped 12 of 16 earning no decision while Scott Munroe stopped 16 of 17 in relief.

After that it was off to the Land of Chocolate Hershey, Pennsylvania for a game with the Bears. In the first period with the Falcons on the power play, Austin Madaisky took a pass from TJ Tynan at the left point and skated the line before firing a shot past the Bears goalie. The Bears would score five minutes into the second to tie the game and ultimately, the game would go to overtime. Overtime went late enough that it was three on three with TJ Tynan getting sprung on a breakaway by Jamie Sifers. Tynan deked and put the puck past the Bears goalie. Forsberg made 34 saves in his rookie leading 13th win of the season.

December 1-7 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Posted by CBJProspects on December 08, 2014
Prospects / No Comments

Greetings, Jackets fans – it’s another week in the world of Jackets prospects. We’re closing in on the CHL’s holiday break and the World Juniors are coming quickly. Let’s start with an award. It was announced on Monday that Anton Forsberg was named the AHL’s Goaltender of the Month for November. After being sent back from Columbus, Anton went 8-0-0 with a 1.76 GAA and a .936 save percentage.

On to the Falcons’ games. Starting off on Friday night against Norfolk, early in the first Marko Dano scored his third of the season off a scramble in front. Seven minutes later with the Falcons on the power play, Austin Madaisky’s slap shot was stopped and TJ Tynan picked up the rebound to find Ryan Craig in front. He scored with the entire side of the net open. A minute twenty later, the Admirals scored to the period 2-1. Trent Vogelhuber scored the game winner very early in the second period  (for some reason they didn’t think it deserved to be in the highlights). In the 3-2  victory, Forsberg made 27 saves. The win also set a new franchise record as it was the Falcons 10th in a row. Here are head coach Jared Bednar’s and Anton Forsberg’s postgame comments.
