wow what a crazy weekend for the Dogs, how they managed to win 3 in 3 days with that lineup is very impressive, especially since one of the teams they beat happens to be the top team in the AHL.
Dogs were down 2-0 and not looking very good. Rochester was sharp in the 1st, but the Dogs kept working hard and then went on a scoring tear, getting 4 PP goals and the 6 pts they picked up really helped keep their playoff hopes alive.
Schultz with 5 pts in 2 games, in the first 16 games of the season he had 2 pts, in the next 22 games he picked up 16 points, talk about a turnaround in his season. Nattinen with 4 goals in 3 games and looking good on the top line. Geoffrion with 4 pts and 13 shots in 2 games, looking good as well. Berger gets his first AHL goal, congrats to him.
No updates on the massive injuries though, Willsie, Fortier, Dumont, Masse, Avtsin, Stejskal, Conboy, Nash and Bishop all injured. I did read that Willsie could be back next weeked but that's it for updates (other then Conboy being done for the season), hopefully they get some bodies back as there's no way they can keep this up.
And when Engq gets the call up he does his vanishing act. AHL does not mean success in the NHL.
Never said it did. What it means is that he has the goods. Much of Engqvists problem at the NHL level is that he is always one or two steps behind the play. The game is much quicker and he has trouble dealing with that.
Glad to see that the Bulldogs are playing so well since Geoffrion has joined them,I don't think they have had a three game winning streak this year.Especially three in three nights the team is playing with some more players too,hopefully the injury bug doesn't eat its way through the entire lineup again. Grand Rapids Griffins on Wednesday that team is loaded as well,they need the rest before that one.Go Dogs Go!
