I was at the game tonight. Pretty good crowd for once. There were some notable player omissions with no teddy, pesonen, disemone, and hrabaranka. I thought henrique had an awesome game defensively. Josefson had another strong game i thought. I really like the way whitney played. Ive been pretty high on him since last season. I hope down the road he gets a chance at the NJ DEVILS roster. I thought larsson had an off nights. He uncharacteristically coughed the puck up a bunch in key moments. But hes had so many great games so far that he was bound to have a rougn one. Finally i thought frazee played awesome. He made so many big stops tonight. He really kept them in the game

What arena -- home or away -- on the Albany Devils schedule is closest in miles to the Rock? Thinking of checking out a game.

Todays feed for the Devils, Admirals game. Quality kinda sucks unfortunately.

Devils killed off a 5 on 3 penalty kill in the early part of the game. Whitney and Sestito took penalties. JJ and henrique were the forwards killing. Loving the way they have been playing on the kill. Especially Henrique

Judging from this map, Bridgeport or Wilkes-Barre are probably closest to Newark, depending where in NJ you are.

Edit: According the the ole google maps, Prudential to Wilkes-Barre is 2 hrs 15 mins, and to Bridgeport its 1 hr 40 mins.

That's a cool map -- never saw it before.

Yes, I after going team by team on Google Maps earlier, I too figured that Bridgeport is closest.

I might even try for a weekend home game in Albany. Supposedly, it's about 2 1/2 hours from me.

Depending on where in NJ you are, Hershey is a little more than a two-hour drive. And there are four "home" games scheduled to be played in Atlantic City, including the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

Yeah, Hershey is exactly two hours from me in South Jersey, making it the closest AHL arena for me. I went to the Albany/Hershey game at the end of October and I plan to go again in December if the lockout is still on.

I'll also be at the Albany game in AC later this month...it's nice to still be able to see some hockey during the lockout.

That Hershey arena is fun. They have quite a following. I got to catch the All Star game in AC last season. The arena set up is interesting. There's just an open space on one end of the arena.

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.
