Our defensemen turned the puck over a couple of times too, Lernout not looking very good, looks like a C prospect at this point..
Scherbak was by far the best player of both teams in the first, he is moving his legs well out there, nice crisp passes and a great end to end rush that should have been a goal.. First time I watch Scherbak and I say to myself, wow we got a player here!
I watched the second and the third and Scherbak was not impressive at all...
Ice Caps shut out the Rochester Americans tonight 2-0. Lindgren blanks them while Hudon scored his 23rd goal from Keegan Lowe and Josiah Didier while Terry scored his 24th with assists from Scherbak and Hanley.
They next play against Philly's farm team Leigh Valley Phantoms on Tuesday and Wednesday.
I still think this kid can be useful in a bottom 6 role in the NHL.
I think so too. I am not the type rushing to quit on a prospect because he's played 2 or 3 seasons in the minors.
In DLR's case, he's 21 now and will be 22 next month. That doesn't tell me he's done if he hasn't cracked the NHL line-up by now. Even if it takes him another year in the AHL before becoming a full-time NHL'er, he'll be 24. He'll still be young enough to have a long career and help out the Habs for years to come.
4-1 now. They are in their 2nd intermission.
Caps allowed Lehigh Valley to get back into the game. It's 4-3 now.
Way to go Ice Caps for blowing a 4-0 lead heading into the third. They lost 5-4 in OT.
