2014-15 Albany Devils and ECHL Thread

11 October 2014 - 10:53 PM

The Albany Devils opened their season with a 5-1 victory over the Adirondack Flames. New Devil, Paul Thompson, led the way with 4 goals, a +3 rating, and 7 shots. Joe Whitney picked up 3 assists on Thompson's goals. Stefan Matteau added a goal and an assist with a +2 rating, 2 shots, and 2 penalty minutes. Seth Helgeson, Brandon Burlon, Dan Kelly, and Scott Timmins each had an assist. Keith Kinkaid made 34 saves on 35 shots to earn 2nd star honors while Thompson was the first star. Adirondack outshot Albany 35-30. Albany was 1/3 on the PP and 3/4 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet. Below are the highlights with some weird musical selections.


Scratches: Chris McKelvie (Lower Body Injury), Kelly Zajac (Lower Body Injury), Myles Bell (No Contract Yet), Ben Johnson, Ben Thomson, David Wohlberg, Reece Scarlett, Joe Faust, Maxime Clermont
