Report from Down on the Farm

Made the 2-hour drive up to Manchester for the Monarchs/P-Bruins game tonight. Good time, fairly decent crowd. Had the whole 11th row behind the Providence net all to ourselves.

Was good to see some of the prospects in action. Martin Jones made 30 saves, Vey had a goal (with a nice assist from Hickey) and an assist, and Czarnik had a nice goal assisted by Kozun. Final score, 4-1 Monarchs. Made the drive worth it Two fights and a goal in the first :40 set the tone.

Monarchs looked solid as they really scattered those 31 shots by PVD (their only goal was on a breakaway). Their PP looks like they fly Kompon in for practice, although they did have a PPG tonight. Was very impressed with the D all around, Campbell, Muzzin and Deslauriers especially. Hickey was solid also.

Just want to tell one other real cool story about Brandon Kozun. Just for fun, earlier in the day I sent him a tweet @Kozy15 to tell him I was coming to the game wearing my Dave Taylor throwback and if he saw me during warmups and could get a puck for my son that he would be thrilled. Sure enough, we are down on the glass and he looks over at me, scoops up a puck and skates right over to us and tosses it to me. For the record, my son was indeed thrilled.

As they were leaving the ice he did manage to fire a shot that would have probably taken my left arm off had it not been for the glass

Hickey has been outstanding here recently. He's tied for 5th in the AHL in +- with a +15.

I don't want to bring a guy like Nolan up even if Gagne is out for awhile. They have a good thing going in Manch right now. First in the division, too.

Thanks for the recap, and that was cool of Kozun to give you a puck for your kid!

I don't think you need to worry about Nolan coming up for Gagne. I highly doubt anyone from the farm will come up to replace Gagne. And if they did, it will probably be someone like King, who's been hot of late and playing better.

My guess is Lokti or Pens will replace Gags or move Brownie over to LW.

Btw, nice story about Kozun and your kid. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome, thanks for the update! Glad to hear about Kozy and your kid, that's a real athlete right there. Loved Czarnik's goal in that vid Ziggy posted.
