Cottonmouths surging

Excerpt from the ECHL This Week Press Release...

Cottonmouths Go 9-1-1, Climb In Central Division

Going 3-1-0 last week and 9-1-1 in its last 11 games, Columbus has improved to 18-18-3 and moved to within two points of fourth place Pensacola in the Central Division.

The Cottonmouths, who won a season-high six consecutive games from December 21-January 2, have 39 points while Pensacola has 41 points and a 18-12-5 record. Mississippi (22-11-6) leads the Central Division with 50 points while Louisiana (23-10-2) is in second place with 48 points and Gwinnett (22-11-3) is in third place with 47 points.

Columbus plays at Augusta on Thursday and at Florence on Friday before hosting Greenville on Saturday. The Cottonmouths, who have won four road games in a row, are 1-1-0 at Augusta and 2-2-0 overall against the Lynx in 2003-04. Columbus won 1-0 at Florence on December 6 in its only meeting with the Pride and won 2-1 at Greenville on December 30 in the only meeting with the Grrrowl. Defenseman Rumun Ndur scored the game-winning goal in the win at Florence and in the win at Greenville, his only two goals of the season for the Cottonmouths.

Marc-Andre Thinel and John Morlang lead the Cottonmouths the last 11 games with five goals and two game-winning goals while Dan Tessier has a team-high nine assists and 12 points in eight games since being assigned from Toronto of the American Hockey League on December 29.

The Cottonmouths have used five different goaltenders during the 11-game streak.

Rookie Jason Tapp has started the last four games for the Cottonmouths going 3-1-0 with a 1.50 goals against average and a .950 save percentage. In his first-ever ECHL start, Tapp had 30 saves in a 3-0 win at South Carolina on Tuesday and then made 21 saves in a 4-0 win at Gwinnett on Friday. Tapp's team record shutout streak came to an end at 168:55 with a goal at 8:55 of the third period in a 3-1 win against Gwinnett on Saturday.

Bobby Haselden replaced an injured Kristian Antila in the first period on January 3 and made 20 saves in a 2-1 shootout loss against South Carolina. In the last 11 games, Antila has made two starts and is 1-0-0 with a shutout, a 0.00 goals against average and a 1.000 save percentage.

Prior to his recall to Albany of the AHL on January 5, Matus Kostur was 4-0-0 with a 1.50 goals against average and a .938 save percentage while Olivier Michaud, who was recalled to Hamilton of the AHL on December 28, allowed three goals in a 5-3 win against Gwinnett on December 21.

By the way, I saw the team play twice this weekend. Shasby played well as usual, very calm and smart. I figured out a good comparison -- he plays like Daniel Tjarnqvist of the Thrashers. Containment style, which isn't exciting, but it is effective. Shasby is slightly more likely to give someone an extra nudge than Tjarnqvist is though.

Thanks! Nice to see Shasby playing well down there. Do you think he could make a transition to the AHL next year?

Absolutely. He seems a bit skinny though, it would be nice to see him put on some weight.

Yeah, he weigh about 195 pounds and is 6 pi 2 tall so I guess he has to fill that frame!

A water moccasin, agkistodon piscivorus, or hook-toothed fish eater.

The Cottonmouth snake is related to the copperhead but more dangerous.* Venom is highly toxic with severe tissue destruction.* Bites are fairly frequent in the southern United States.* Color dark or nearly black, especially in adult of the species.* There is a clear difference in the appearance of adult cottonmouths and juvenile snakes of the species.*
Average length 31/2 feet, maximum length 6 feet.

It's a snake for all you potheads out there! :p

It's pretty obvious why they called the team the Cottonmouths. It's because "Hook-toothed fish eaters" is way too long for a team name. :p

Thanks for the update, HollyG.

Jacksonville Lizard Kings
Tallahassee Tiger Sharks
Alexandria Warthogs
Lubbock Cotton Kings
Austin Ice Bats

There certainly are some unique team names down in the Southern States. Can't decide if the Ice Bats or the Warthogs are my favorite. :p

BTW, Eric Landry played for each of these teams, and more....
