Wow, nice GDT!

DJN21 11-30-2012 03:33 AM

wooo party deck here I come, go amerks!

sabrefan27 11-30-2012 07:57 AM

Don't care about Toronto's mediocre record. That team has so much talent. Tough game.

Also, Kevin O alluded in his article that Adam will be back and playing with Mancari. So the lines will be tweaked probably.

Woodhouse 11-30-2012 08:20 AM

Yeah, both teams are expected to tweak their lineups. The Amerks will dress Adam, who skated with Mancari in yesterday's practice; while the Marlies, who had 3-in-4 last weekend and begin a 3-in-3 weekend tonight, are expected to rotate personnel and account for Fraser's injury.

Lance Hornby ‏@sunhornby
Marlie injury update: D Mark Fraser (strained shoulder) and G Jussi Rynnas (groin) will likely miss next three games until next week.

Paul Hendrick ‏@HennyTweets
Ryan hamilton moves back onto line with mike zigomanis and greg mckegg. Brad ross moves back to the extra line.#marlies

Very nicely done GDT!

Woodhouse 11-30-2012 06:56 PM

Pre-game notes:
  • Schiestel dresses again as Parker and JGL sit; is skating with Adam and Mancari.

1st period notes:
  • RCH PENALTY as Rankin gets two for hooking; Ashton and Kadri with point-blank chances on a centering pass and rebound respectively, Leggio saves twice; a backdoor pass redirected on net, Leggio saves again; penalty expires.
  • TOR PENALTY as Acton gets two for tripping Adam behind the net as Scrivens gave it away; left circle shot on SH 3-on-2 saved by Leggio; RCH counters as Porter takes a drop pass, but Scrivens flashes the glove; penalty expires.
  • TOR PENALTY as McKegg gets two for holding; RCH barely can get past their blue line; SH chance for Hamilton saved; Rankin with three whacks from the goalmouth but can't put it past Scrivens and his right pad; penalty expires.
  • RCH PENALTY as Biega get two for tripping...
  • TOR GOAL! 1-0 TOR. Ashton; assists to Aucoin and Kostka. Pysyk whiffs on the poke check as Aucoin splits the defense and then dishes to Ashton on the left for the one-time goal.
  • TOR GOAL! 2-0 TOR. Frattin; assists to Deschamps and Blacker. Just 0:15 later, Frattin picks the top corner after being left alone in the slot.
  • TOR PENALTY as Ashton gets two for holding Brennan...
  • END OF 1ST PERIOD. 2-0 TOR. SHOTS 14-10 TOR. RCH 5V4 1:14.
A definite advantage to the Marlies that period as Leggio came up on huge several occasions; conversely, the only real RCH chances were the Porter and Rankin opportunities noted above.

sabrefan27 11-30-2012 07:12 PM

The Amerks are a total mess in every aspect of the game right now.

Woodhouse 11-30-2012 07:12 PM

Marlies posted the goals to YouTube already:

EDIT: It's 3-0 now as Frattin snipes another one. I think Brennan was the one with the original turnover behind the net and the **** coverage afterward.

sabrefan27 11-30-2012 07:17 PM

It was Brennan. That's 3 goals he's cost in 2 games.

DJN21 11-30-2012 09:53 PM

embarrassing game to be at and watch...
and with that I give this caveat...the amerks hit everything in sight and tried to instigate as many fights as possible to get things turned around...the Marlies demonstrated both an excellent level of cowardice and level of patience n maturity by not being egged into it...

DJN21 11-30-2012 10:10 PM

Foligno-the usual hit everything he could, tried to start about 5 fights finding no takers, had chances but lacks real finish...was the least of our concerns

Flynn-was the usual impressive sparkplug til he gift wrapped an empty netter...embarsssing

Rankin-tried to throw his body otherwise was kinda meh


Mancari-had he not saved a goal by literally pulling it off the crease Id be bashing him up and down this board...gotta go

Varone-his footspeed impressed me, he got around on defense but on offense...meh

Roy-reminds me of gerbe....hit people twice his size...plays twice his size, yet results are minimal..often times like gerbe. still love him...

Brennan...defense still is iffy, still tries to play wing every chance he gets...AM VERY IMPRESSED BY HIS WILLINGNESS TO BE PHYSICAL. Sorry to bold that but...he really showed something tonight I dont usually see from him...

Finley-not as bad as usual...couldnt find a taker for a fight

Pysyk-most invisible hes been all year...not sure if thats a compliment or negative...absolutely nothing bad to say...nothing great though either...had a terrible turnover and turned around rode his guy into the boards taking him down and regaining the puck...def a game highlight for me.

McNabb...mostly terrible again...outlet passing is terribleee. needs to either focus on shooting or hitting cuz this middle game is embarassing.

Biega-thought this was one of his worst games this year and hes had some good ones so its hard to get on him much...questionable passing but no one else seems to be willing to help him out so...

Leggio-unreal for almost a first period...then dropped the ball...looks terrible handling the puck...looks awesome...then terrible...idk what to make of him...theres times I think he could rival Miller or Rinner etc other times he looks like a backup...cant seem to put whole periods/games together...bails us out which buys us sympathy but he really can be a bonehead too

Note: OP Addition
I'm choosing to recycle last night's GDT for the second leg of the home-and-home with Toronto. Also, I didn't watch the second half of Friday's game as closely as usual – BC@BU was on NBCSN – so I've got no additional notes to share.


Friday's boxscore:

2nd Period-3, Toronto, Frattin 7 (Acton), 3:41. Penalties-Finley Rch (cross-checking), 4:42; Zigomanis Tor (interference), 6:58; McNabb Rch (boarding), 10:30; Legault Rch (bench minor - too many men), 16:27.

3rd Period-4, Rochester, Legault 1 (Biega, Tarnasky), 3:46. 5, Toronto, D'Amigo 3 19:07 (EN). Penalties-Flynn Rch (double minor - high-sticking), 14:36; Kostka Tor (hooking), 15:01.

Shots on Goal-Toronto 14-10-7-31. Rochester 10-10-9-29.
Power Play Opportunities-Toronto 1 / 7; Rochester 0 / 4.
Goalies-Toronto, Scrivens 6-6-0 (29 shots-28 saves). Rochester, Leggio 9-7-0 (30 shots-27 saves).

I've added last night's D&C recap:

11.30 – Rochester Amerks lose to Toronto Marlies (D&C – Kevin Oklobzija)
Game highlights:

Taelin 12-01-2012 11:07 AM

Will have this game PVR'd and will watch it when I get home!

It's been a while since I have been able to watch an Amerks game.

sabrefan27 12-01-2012 12:11 PM

Word of warning. You will want to turn it off before the first period ends. Worse than Wednesday. Didn't think that was possible.

They need to change something up as this is obviously not working.


??? Just kind of threw that together quickly but something needs to change up front as they haven't had anything going the past 2 games.

sabrefan27 12-01-2012 12:38 PM

Rolston put Schiestel with Mancari and Roy with Flynn. Right then and there, there was no chance of offense.

I'm sorry but there's no coaching. No leadership. They are never prepared. Amerks gave up 2 goals in 15 seconds. Rolston stood there like a statue. Toronto gives up 1 goal then another scoring chance, and Eakins calls a time out.

Stop Winnin 12-01-2012 12:55 PM

We missing Hodg and Tropper. :cry:

sabrefan27 12-01-2012 12:59 PM

Hodgson wouldn't have saved the last 2 train wrecks. It's more than that.

McTank 12-01-2012 01:07 PM

Nice I can watch this one

Silence Of The Plams 12-01-2012 01:48 PM

Any instant video of that interview chick? :naughty:

French Connection 12-01-2012 07:08 PM

The way this entire D core has played it is very confusing why the coaches are singaling out only a couple of players. Crawford sitting is a head scratcher.

Ralonzo 12-01-2012 07:18 PM

Frattin apparently didn't learn his lesson last year, but the linesmen get in there before history repeats
