Rats vs Amerks 1/19/05

The Rats "celebrated" the midpoint of their season by awarding Rochester backup Tom Askey with his first shutout of the year. Rheaume and Murphy, both normally sound defensive players, were both an uncharacteristic -2 for the night as the Rats lost 4-0 at home. It was all around a very forgettable game.

SCORING SUMMARY
Period 1
Rochester - Derek Roy (powerplay) (Thomas Vanek, Chris Taylor) 18:09

Period 2
Rochester - Geoff Peters (shorthanded) (Paul Gaustad) 3:42
Rochester - Chris Taylor (Jason Pominville, Milan Bartovic) 14:17

Period 3
Rochester - Chris Taylor (shorthanded) (unassisted) 12:25

Lines to start the game:

Suglobov-Parise-Voros
Murphy-McAmmond-Rheaume
Nittel-Foster-Pikkarainen
Clouthier-Khomutov-Janssen

Brooks-Redlihs
Schultz-DeMarchi
Spencer-Allen

Ahonen

In the second and third, Clouthier seemed to replace Voros on the line with Parise and Suglobov. I don't think DeMarchi, who had a pretty brutal game, played at all in the third.

Scratches were: Pihlman (knee) Kesa (ribs) and Skrlac (presumed healthy)

Here's the gamestory:

40 games into the season, the Rats are 10-22-4-4, and are sadly on track to finish with fewer points than last season.

In other totally irrelevant news: Scott Clemmensen is set to debut his new mask this weekend. Sounds like it'll be pretty cool. At least I have something to look forward to.

It does appear that this Rats team is going to continue to lose and see no changes are being made to improve this team so it will be a very long season for the Rats. They are having trouble scoring and giving up two shorthanded goals tonight is just terrible. Rats will be cellar dwellers this season and may be worse than last season with only 28 pts and a record of 10-22-4-4. Makes me want to puke.

FOUR FIGHTS, FOUR GOALS DO IN RATS


January 19, 2005 - The Albany River Rats fell to the Rochester Americans, 4-0, on Wednesday, January 19. Amerks G Tom Askey made 29 saves for the win.

LW Brett Clouthier got the Rats fired up, taking on Amerks RW Sean McMorrow at 6:45 of the first period. But a hooking penalty to D Matt DeMarchi would prove costly as Rochester went up 1-0 only three seconds into the power play. C Derek Roy, who played 49 games with the Buffalo Sabres last year, scored his 10th goal of the season, with LW Thomas Vanek and Rochester captain Chris Taylor getting the assists. Shots after the first period were 11-10 in favor of the Amerks.

Rochester went up, 2-0, with a shorthanded breakaway goal from C Geoff Peters at 3:42 of the second period. The gloves started flying as RW Cam Janssen fought with McMorrow, followed by a bout between Rats D Steven Spencer and C Paul Gaustad just five minutes later. Gaustad received an extra two minutes for instigating and a ten-minute misconduct. Taylor notched his second point of the night with a goal to put the Amerks up 3-0, with RW Jason Pominville and LW Milan Bartovic grabbing the assists.

Taylor added his second goal of the night at 12:25 of the third period. It was also the second shorthanded goal for the Amerks. After a fight between Rats D Ray Schultz and RW Chris Thorburn, the Amerks held on for the 4-0 win. Shots on goal were 39-29 in favor of Rochester. Taylor, with two goals and an assist, was the first star of the game, Askey the second, and Peters the third.

So this game can be summed up with the word: "Ooooof" ?

I think that eloquently sums up about 75% of the season so far.

timesunion.com: Rats hit lowpoint at season's midpoint

Americans 4 River Rats 0 ALBANY -- If their 40-game record is an accurate reflection of the first half of the Albany River Rats' season, the word "progress" can't be part of the scouting report.

[...]

Even by last-year's unimposing non-playoff standards, 2004-05 has been a step back. At this time last season, the Rats had a record of 12-18-5-5 and 34 points. Although they were, as now, last in the East, their hole wasn't quite as deep.

[...]

"Bottom line is it's my fault we're not doing as well as we have to be doing," Ftorek said. "We'll go to work, and go to work, and go to work. It's repetition, repetition. The biggest thing I'm frustrated with is our passing. We haven't worked hard enough on our passing."

troyrecord.com: Amerks too much for Rats

ALBANY - At the midway mark of their season, the Albany River Rats continue to drift into the doldrums.

[...]

"It's my fault that we're not doing as well as we have to be doing - that's the bottom line," Ftorek said. "We have to continue to work and we'll go to work."
Yet, while Ftorek took the blame, Allen was also accountable for the team's predicament.
"Every aspect of our game was pretty bad," Allen said. "I think if you ask everybody in the (dressing) room, they're going to tell you that. If we don't come out and compete for 60 minutes, we're not going to have success and we know that. Yet it seems that as a team, we're not coming out ready to play and it's very, very frustrating."

Ftorek is talking out of his ass and I think the players are not responding to Robbie anymore. I like Robbie and all but a change really needs to be made because Robbie is not doing a very good job so far. Time for a new head coach for the Rats IMO.

Maybe it is time to get Ftorek out and get somebody new in. I say ted Nolan, he did a awesome job with a young Sabres team a few years back.

Disagree... Ftorek is the one who developed Sullivan, Elias, Sykora, and a myriad of other good NHL players in Albany. Give him a healthy team and a decent defense, he'll do much better than this. Remember, he won the Calder in Albany back in 1995.
