That call-up Goncharov got last year smelled like BS.
Yeah, we can bash him all day, but at least he's given it his best shot. He'd almost certainly have been able to make much, much more money playing at home and being with family and friends. So, at least there's that.
Pirates return to the Colisee with momentum on their side By Chris Roy Published: 26th October 2012
PORTLAND – The Portland Pirates head back to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee for the second of six games to this season, hoping to maintain the momentum of their two-game road trip to St. John’s, Newfoundland.
The Pirates, who earned three of a possible four points against the St. John’s IceCaps, will face the Binghamton Senators at a sold out Colisee according the team officials.
to answer the question why WLOB failed, is technical issues @ the Arena, Kaizen, Pirate fans finally got connected just before the Bolduc PPG, BUT it ended up being the Senators broadcast..... it was a 4-2 W, as Miele (4)-PP, Brodeur & Szwarz entered the G column, as the team allowed 2 SHG.... Remember, too, CJ is the veteran here, and they don't want to ruin Visentin's confidence so they're breaking him in...
