Albany Notes:

Defenseman Jay Leach, who hasn’t played since Nov. 5 because of a lower-body injury, may return to the Albany lineup this week. The Devils have home games Wednesday (vs. Syracuse), Friday (vs. Worcester) and Saturday (vs. Springfield).

Captain Stephen Gionta, who missed the road trip with an upper-body injury, and forward Vladimir Zharhov, who has missed the past three games because of illness, are expected to play Wednesday night.

Defenseman Matt Corrente, sidelined since Nov. 11 with an upper-body injury, will not return this week, Kowalsky said. Forward Steve Bernier, who injured his thumb late in the Dec. 4 home game against Rochester, likely won’t return until at least mid-January.

“He’s quietly been a big leader for us in many ways, and he plays a lot of minutes,” Kowkasky said. “That’s a tough loss. We’re looking at a minimum of four weeks.”



ECHL Action:
Kalamazoo defeated Cincinnati 4-2: Young (E, 5 PIM - Fighting), Haczyk (Goal, +1, 4 Shots), and Clermont did not play.

Zharkov's strong game (G, A, +2, 6 shots) earned him 2nd star. Syracuse won the game with .4 seconds left in overtime. As most of you know Palmieri was sent down today and played (+1, 5 shots). Here is the gamesheet. Highlights below:

Albany defeated Binghamton 3-0. Scoring for the Devils was Sova (Sislo and Zharkov), Zharkov (Whitney and Anderson), and Palmieri (EN, Mills and Zharkov). Kinkaid stopped all 36 shots he faced and earned 1st star. Zharkov's 3 point night earned him 2nd star. Former Devil Mike McKenna earned 3rd star stopping 41 of 43 shots. Corrente returned to the line up for the 1st time since November 11, ending up a +1 for the night. Timo Pielmeier was called up to back up Kinkaid since Frazee suffered a hand injury in the last game. Frazee's injury doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. Here is the gamesheet. Highlights below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiwPNGMUEPg

Zharkov: 20 GP 3 G 11 A 14 Pts +1 9 PIM 8.82 SH%

Their next game is Monday against Binghamton at 7:05.

Kalamazoo lost to Cincinnati 5-1: Haczyk (-1, 2 Shots) and Clermont (41 Saves on 46 Shots). Kalamazoo managed just 14 shots the whole game so it doesn't seem like Clermont had much of a chance.

Zharkov leading the team in points/game? Must be some kind of miracle.

He actually looks pretty good in that highlight video, creating a couple chances there. I wonder if he'll have another shot with the big club again this season. But as long as he's staying in the Devils' system, maybe some time in Albany is best for him.

He's been one of the top point getters for the minor league team since he joined them.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Albany Notes

Forward Chad Wiseman injured his groin Monday night in an 8-3 loss at Binghamton, and defenseman Matt Corrente strained a hamstring Tuesday night as the Devils fell at Connecticut, 3-2.

Goaltender Jeff Frazee, who hyperextended his left elbow in a 2-1 victory over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Dec. 18, has practiced the past two days. Kowalsky said he wants to get Frazee more ice time before using him in a game, meaning rookie Keith Kinkaid likely will get both weekend starts.

Forward Nathan Perkovich, who hasn’t played since a 3-2 shootout loss to Springfield on Dec. 17 because of an upper-body injury, also has been skating. Kowalsky likely will hold out Perkovich until next week because he wants to give him more practice time.

Wow I wonder when Zharkov's skill will finally translate to the NHL. I'm really hoping that he's our next call up; he seems to be deserving of a chance. Those Manchester highlights look pretty good too.

eh... for Zharkov to get a call up, he needs to take the place of a top 9 forward (he's not the right kind of player to play on the 4th line).
I suppose the Devils could send Tendenby down and bring him up for a look.
