Atlantic City is almost as far as Albany for me -- albeit in the other direction. And Hershey is slightly farther.

Dec 19th at 7:00 albany at bridgeport (its a weds. night) then a sunday @ 3:00 on march 17th (hopefully its moot by then)


I'm considering that one.

I wonder if any of the fan clubs are considering a bus trip up to Albany. I'd definitely be on board for that.

On Monday, after having dinner at Dinosaur BBQ, I happened to walk into the AmeriHealth Pavilion and caught a few minutes of a New Jersey Rockets game. It made me realize how much I miss watching hockey live.

Another game, another shootout loss, 4-3 this time. Nice job coming back from 2-0 and 3-2 down though, and 2 PP goals to boot.

Maybe they could sign Kovy to an AHL-shootout-only-contract?

Visiting a friend here in Illinois and made it to the Peoria Rivermen @ Chicago Wolves game last night. Peoria won, 3-2. Zach Kassian, the only player I recognized played awful. Including a 10 min unsportsmanlike conduct and a penalty to end Chicago's comeback hopes with a penalty at 19:51 of the 3rd. They sure love their Wolves in Chicago. Many Blackhawks fans which is quite the conflict of interest considering the Wolves are Vancouver's affiliate. First ever AHL game was a success, too bad there are no teams down by me in Florida cause I had fun.

Albany lost to Syracuse 4-1, their second loss in a row. Scoring his first goal of the year was Whitney, assisted by Henrique, earning him 3rd star. Kinkaid made 21 saves on 25 shots and earned a roughing penalty. Taormina had an assist for Syracuse. Here is the gamesheet.

Albany takes on Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in AC tomorrow at 4. They are still last in their conference and second to last in the league with 12 points.

Trenton lost to Greenville 3-0. Wedgewood had 35 saves on 37 shots earning 3rd star and Haczyk was a -1, with 2 shots and 2 PIM's. Clermont didn't play for Elmira tonight against South Carolina.

Honestly feels like Albany should consider firing Kowalsky at this point. No excuse for this much talent being unable to string together wins.

I don't know if they should be happy or not with taking 7 penalties and losing in the SO.

Went to the game yesterday, had a blast. The team looks good, the talent is totally there. Henrique, Josefson, Tedenby, and even Butler looked GREAT. We have some SERIOUS offensive talent coming up!!

However, our defense was largely underwhelming. Larsson made a couple of questionable plays in the second half of the game and overall they left Kinkaid out to dry way too many times. Kinkaid, on the other hand, looked GREAT. Disregard the 4 goals on the scoreboard, he made some awesome saves and if my memory serves me correctly, all 4 goals were from some seriously severe defensive lapses around/behind the net. I don't get to watch minor league hockey too often but I felt very comfortable with Kinkaid in net. It's the defense I'm a bit worried about; there were player coverages I could spot from the upper seats that our d-men were one step behind on.

However, the Penguins didn't look half-bad, so I can't say the team played badly overall; they were extremely evenly matched.

3rd game in 3 nights, I think that's fine. It's the other two games that are of concern.

I was scared at first when I saw surgery for Henrique but its just his left thumb. What else can go wrong for Albany at this point?

Whatever, it just opens up a spot for another guy - trouble is, it's hard to imagine Henrique being ready for the season when it does start.

A crappy PP, lack of scoring, coaching and some bad luck

More like "IF it does start."

This team has no forward depth. It shows with Albany's struggles to consistently score goals. Losing anyone projected to play in the top 2 lines with the big club is a gigantic loss should the season start soon.

Albany has plenty of forward depth - note that I said Albany and not NJ. Part of the problem is that shots aren't falling. The forwards alone are shooting 8.8% as a team. Well, that's around the average shooting percentage for forwards and defensemen in the AHL. So it's no wonder that they're not scoring.

Sucks to see Henrique smitten by the Curse of Jacob Josefson.

With Henrique's injury, Id like to see Butler paired with Josefson. I think JJ's vision and playmaking ability could really get Butler going.

Josefson has turned a career 2 S/G player into 3 S/G player...Too bad Anderson can't finish
