Abramov - 3:02 - 3
Dalpe scratched last night and tonight (sounds like injury)
Gerbe scratched tonight (might be rest)
17:53 - 3
Scott goal with Berube pulled from the net
Weren't the Monsters supposed to be good?
Injury update (per Tony Brown on Facebook game preview):
Koules (recently signed to an SPC) was a healthy scratch. This wouldn't be noteworthy except that they played Somerby at forward ahead of him (both Collins and Somerby played forward on Friday night).
Kivlenieks a healthy scratch after being the backup on Friday
Scratched: Koules (not with team yet?), Robinson (likely returning from Columbus)
Injured: Vigneault, Milano, Thurkauf, Dalpe, Bittner
Scratched: Berube (likely returning from Columbus)
A: Cross, Letestu
Scratched: Koules (Probably will join team in Cleveland on Monday)
Injured: Vigneault, Milano, Thurkauf, Dalpe, Bittner, Gerbe
C: none (Gerbe replaced with third A when injured)
A: Cross, Gallant, Letestu
See the injury report I just posted. The forward lines have been gutted.
I'll post a depth chart following practice on Tuesday.
Working on depth chart now
I'm not sure I have enough clarity in regard to the defensive pairings to post a depth chart (lots of mix and match outside of Carlsson-Clendening today).
Vigneault and Bittner practiced in non-Red jerseys
Dalpe and Milano practiced in Red (non-contact) jerseys
Thurkauf and Gerbe did not practice
Simpson also did not practice
Here's my best guess at a depth chart:
Fortier-(only four centers)-Koules
Rehabbing: Milano, Dalpe
Injured: Thurkauf, Gerbe
Assuming Stenlund is there where would he be? I'm curious because from recent lines you posted he looked like a 4th liner but yet he gets called up.
To be honest, this has me baffled, too.
Cleveland line are all over the place I wouldn't say there was ever a real order like there is in Columbus
We'll know more about the current lines following this weekend's games.
It could be a matter of lines that fit well together rather than a 1-2-3-4 hierarchical structure.
Also, the forward lines are still a mess with multiple key players out injured.
Monsters lost last night 1-0 despite massively outshooting Laval.
Up 3-2 following two periods today. Lines forthcoming.
Clendening suspended for a while (slashed stick down on linesman's skate last night).
Tony Brown explains it towards the end of his Road Report game preview video on the Monsters' facebook page today (whole situation sounds like a mess and is too complicated to get into here).
No official word on length of suspension.
Scratches: Korostelev (mentioned as game time decision [him or Gallant], so he probably skated in warmups), Koules
Injuries: Milano, Thurkauf, Bittner, Gerbe
A: Cross, Dalpe, Letestu
Only changes for today are Simpson returning from injury and Clendening being suspended. Also, nothing about a game-time decision between Gallant and Korostelev.
