Quickly from tonight's game: Whale win 3-2, take over first place in the division (although Bridgeport has a game in hand). Chad Johnson looked great. He seemed to be seeing everything really well and kept the Whale in the game when they couldn't get it together. Lots of defensemen out of position and so on. Bell and Nightingale were brutal together. One was always out of position it seemed.
Lines started with Deveaux/Newbury/JAM on the top line, but Gernander swapped Wellman with Deveaux and the line scored three goals. Three points for Wellman.
But seriously, the Whale are going to need that kind of secondary production if they want to go far in the playoffs. Four point lead in the division having played one more game than Bridgeport. Looking good right now.
I can't wait to see how much Andrew Yogan has improved when he arrives this week. He was decent enough last year.
