Looks like Jani and Hinz played well for the Runners. I'm praying that Jani gets on a role. I KNOW that he has it in him, but I'm scared it will take a change of scenery to get it out of him :mad: :mad:

Toronto lost 3-1 yesterday to Grand Rapids (Detroit)... all 3 goals against were on the same 5 minute power play.

Winchester got a questionable major penalty (should have been a double minor), and the Runners couldn't come back.

I will say this, although the Runners are something like 4-11-2, they have out-played, out shot and out chanced the opposition the majority of the games this season.

They are like the oilers of the past couple of years, whereas they need to beat the puck to death to get a goal.

They really miss guys like Sarno and Salmelainen right now, the scoring depth down there is obviously rather weak. It hasn't helped that Rita's been hurt that last couple of games too.

And don't forget that they've been without Valiquette the last couple of weeks, too, so I would imagine (?) that it's easier to score goals on the Roadrunners at this point than if he were playing there.

I like the sounds of your report, Dawgbone - feel free to make a Roadrunners' report on a regular basis! These e-mails from the club are OK, but nothing beats getting a more personal (and, shall we say, objective?) report!

Actually, Mike Morrison has been decent in net (better than I had expected). They could be getting by without Valiquette if they could put the puck in the net.
