Marlies and JRC played 2 mini games. First half went to the JRC, and 2nd half went to the Marlies. Too many penalties called and refs assisted in the outcome of the game. Marlies didnt win the game, but rather JRC fell apart.
Stephens scored a great goal, and was called off, and ended up receiving a 10 minute misconduct penalty. Marlies scored 4 goals while Stephens was in the box.
The Big K had a hilite reel type goal, but was very cautious the rest of the game. He spent too much time on the bench because of the penalties to his team.
Best player on the ice for both teams was Robinson on the Marlies.
Chewer, I watched both games. When the Rebels score first they are tough to play against. When DMF scored the Rebels had to open things up. They lack the goal scorer. McConnagh the D from DMF was the player of the game. He has really come along. Marner's strengh is a big issue, he is knowcked of the puck to easliy and doesnt play down low. Shift management is a concern, he stays out to long and waits high for the puck.
Marlies vs. JRC interesting game. Venditti was awefull for both teams. Took the flow away, but made the game interesting. Though you "special K" showed his skill during the first part of the game but appeared to have checked out. Spending time on the bench because your team is short handed, shows one thing......no defensive interest at all and cant play in his own end. Yes he is very good when he has the puck. Both Stephens and Strome play in both ends of the ice and play in all situations.
Though Strome struggled for a two periods and had a great third. The goal called off on Stephens' second goal was terrible. Benigno already received a penalty for knocking the net off, but to call that off on a breakaway. It sure seemed to wake up the Marlies because they were fired up to start the 3rd.
JRC couldnt capitilize on the 5 min major to Webb which would have been just to a game that was terribly officiated towards both teams.
Robinson had energy all night and was the best player on the ice. Thought Richardson struggled.
