So, I knew Gelinas wasn't able to play in Albany but now Merrill isn't playing, this is ludicrous. Is Lou really this poor at managing his players.

He is. I read Kowalsky was told to give Merrill a rest and not use him right away in an interview with one of the Albany reporters the other day.

It's kind of sh!tty that they didn't play Merrill for the AC game. A lot of NJ fans that would have loved to see him, me included.

Holy Jesus does Adam Larsson have a nice outlet pass.  He's also doing a better job getting deflectable wrist shots on net. He isn't getting as many shots blocked as he was in NJ.

 

Boucher has literally looked dangerous on every shift but is being slowed down by Tedenby. Tedenby dangling in the slot rather than ripping a shot or passing it to Boucher or Kelly Zajac. 

 

Matteau hasnt been that noticeable but he did have a few nice hits.  He is rarely overpowered despite his age and has straight bullied Adirondack players on several occasions

If we don't make a move to get a scorer, I really want Pete to give Boucher a real shot on that top line with Zajac and Jagr.  Playing him only 12 minutes a game doesn't do anything for that line or Boucher.

AHL
Albany defeated Adirondack 4-1. Scoring for the Devils was Sestito (Pesonen), Pelley (Wohlberg, Hoeffel), Tedenby (Scarlett), and Whitney. Wedgewood stopped 15 of 16 shots to earn 2nd star. Pesonen with his assist and 4 shots earned 1st star while Wohlberg earned 3rd star. The Devils outshot the Phantoms 31-16 thanks to 4 shot efforts by Pelley, Boucher, and Pesonen. Albany was 0/5 on the PP and 2/2 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.
 
Kowalsky said in his postgame presser that Merrill won't play this weekend and he's not sure if he will be available to them next week.

I'm surprised they didn't just start Hedberg - I guess given that Wedgewood got no pressure in the last 20 minutes of last night's game (and I watched it and he didn't), they thought he'd be good for a 3 in 3.

Yeah I kind of understand it. The job of the coaching staff is to develop Wedgewood going forward. He's their guy until Kincaid is back. If Wedgewood is playing well then ride him and hope to create some positive energy the rest of the season. Hedberg is just a hired gun. It definitely backfired though. 7-3 Bridgeport with just over 5 mins left.

What do you thin of Hoeffel as a possible Ryan Carter or Steve Bernier replacement? Love his speed and is huge to boot

Kinkaid, with a K.  I don't think they played Wedgewood because they're trying to develop him, they played him because they thought he'd be a better option than a guy who has been cleaning apartments and scouting for the last 5 months.  I'm just not sure that was true given that Wedgewood's AHL numbers are terrible.

It's funny, I saw the speed last night but he just does not make enough happen.  I can't see it.  In the old days he might've gotten a shot because of expansion but there's just not much there other than pressuring the D with the puck.

Albany lost to Bridgeport 7-3 for their 9th loss in their last 12 games. Scoring for the Devils was Hrabarenka (Whitney), Whitney (Matteau, Timmins), and Hrabarenka (PP, Boucher). Wedgewood stopped just 6 of 11 shots in 22:19 before being pulled for Hedberg who stopped 11 of 13 shots in 37:41. Albany outshot Bridgeport 36-24 and went 1/8 on the PP and 5/5 on the PK. Hrabarenka's 2 goals and 4 shots earned him 3rd star. Here is the gamesheet
 
Albany continues to sit 9th in the East with 60 points in a very tight race from 4th thru 9th. Wedgewood's .889 SV% in 24 games has him 2nd to last in the AHL (48/49). Hrabarenka now has 5 goals and 12 assists in 30 games with 48 shots. This was his 1st game in nearly a month as he fell victim to the D logjam and had gone 9 games without registering a point after an impressive 3 goals and 10 assists in 14 games prior. Boucher has 12 goals and 12 assists with 94 shots in 32 games. Matteau has 9 goals and 10 assists with 66 shots in 43 games.
