    No score after 1. The highlight of the period was a heavy weight battle between Geertson and Providence goon Ian McCellan. This was a really good fight and if you like fighting you should look for a clip. Pack outshoot Providence 13-5. The Pack with the better of the chance. 2 PPs a piece. Pack created more chances but failed to beat Dan Vladar. Cuylle playing on the first line with Brodzinski and Greco and was active in front of the net. Khodorenko playing with Reuschhoff on the 3rd line and knoblauch finally moved Geertson to the 4th line with O'Leary and Thompson. Geertson and McCellan each got 7 minutes and that messed up the lines so along with the 4 power plays there was not much action for any of the original lines. Hunter Skinner still playing with Loverde who has been on Skinner's left side.

    2-1 Providence after 2. Providence scores first when I think Taylor mishandles a dump in and Providence scores on a shot from in front with Huska having no chance. Pack come back when O"leary gets the puck at the blue line and throws one at the net that Geertson tips in. Pack almost escape disaster when Loverde trips a Bruin with Raddysh already in the penalty box but Providence doesn't give up the puck and keeps it for about one minute leaving only 12 seconds of 5-3. But as the penalty ends Bruins get a cross ice pass that leads to a shot Huska has no chance on. Providence outshoots Pack 17-7 in the period with many shots coming on the power play. Pack miss a great chance when Reuschhoff wins the puck behind the net and finds a wide open and I mean wide open Khodorenko 20 feet out but he can't beat the goalie.

    In OT Pack wins 3-2. Score tied with when a shot from the point flutters to the goalie who stops it but leaves a rebound that Ronning puts in. Bob Crawford thought Justin Richards took the shot but the assist announced as Loverde. Then a crazy few minutes with Newell taking a nigh sticking penalty with about 5 minutes left. Brodzinski wins the puck on the PK and breaks in with O"leary who gets behind his man and is hooked ending the penalty. But then on a loose puck that Loverde and a Bruin go for Loverde called for tripping giving the Bruins a 4-3. Fortunately the Bruins unable to do anything on the PP. Then in OT Brodzinski wins a battle in the neutral zone and breaks in with Newell and gets a pass to Newell, who otherwise did nothing in the game but was able to bury the shot. Huska solid again in goal, the defense just fair, Skinner with a couple of turnovers and not showing the offense I was expecting but physical. Reunanen's absence very noticeable as Guitari got his PP minutes and not very effective. Newell, Ronning and Huska the 3 stars but I would have put Brodzinski instead of Newell because he made the play. Shots were 32-28 Pack.

    Will we be to Ronning what Calgary was to Martin St Louis? I hope not for our sake, I hope so for his.

    Happy to hear about a Ronning. Also happy skinner is using his body. That’s his game. Play physical and move the puck well. I don’t think he’s going to be a huge pt producer but much like lindgren, he’ll make the great first pass that leads to the offense

    as Ranger Ric mentioned, , Pack have a path to a title,
    with 1 final round robin this week, between today and Thursday

    IF Bridgeport can beat Providence Today in regulation
    Then, if Pack win their last 2 games (Prov in regulation), they can tie Providence in points,
    with 1 less GP, will have a higher pts%age

    UPDATE: actually it seems that even if Prov earns 1 point, if Pack win out, they pass Prov
    31/24=1.291667
    32/25=1.28

    2-2 after 1. Pack outshooting Bridgeport 10-6 . Pack strike first on the PP. Very nice play by Brodzinski controlling the puck and finding Greco in the slot all alone for the score. Bridgeport comes back on a shot from the point that goes wide but comes out the other side and the Bridgeport player was the first one on the puck and he beat Huska who couldn't get across the net. Reuschhoff carries the puck behind the net and puts it front where Geertson taps it in. That's a two game goal streak for Geertson. You can slow him down but you can't stop him. Cuylle fights with Mike Cornell and looks good doing it after a puck battle in the Bridgeport end. With 2 minutes left Bridgeport ties it on the PP on a deflection of a shot from the point. Bridgeport had been 1 for 17 on the PP.

    Greco moved up to the first line with Brodzinski and Newell. Why play 3 vets together? And Reuschhoff moved to fourth line with O'Leary and Geertsen. That doesn't make sense to me in terms of developing Reuschhoff.

    A sleepy period with no scoring. Shots are 18-11 Pack. Ronning has a great chance gathering a rebound but his backhander with an open net goes wide. At the end of the period Patrick Seiloff gets a jack in the box breakaway but is stopped. Cuylle really skating well.

    my first knee-jerk response here was .. 'wait, Newell was just a rookie last season' ... but Newell turned 25 in January ...

    Pack win 4-3 and keep their division championship hopes alive . Pack outshoot Bridgeport 28-19. At the end of a PP Bridgeport turns the puck over in front of the net and Thompson taps it in unassisted. 2nd Pack PP goal of the game. Brodzinski sends Gettinger in who gets behind the Bridgeport defense and beats the goalie. Nice pass by Brodzinski and good speed by Gettinger to break in, the first time he has shown that speed in this game. Ronning with another great chance when Bridgeport turns it over in the slot but Ronning can't beat the goalie. Bridgeport pulls goalie with 3:39 left and Bridgeport scores with 2:00 minutes left on a rebound that goes to an open Bridgeport player. But the Pack close it out. 3 stars are 1. Brodzinski 2. Reuschhoff and 3. Geertson.

    Yep. He really needed a big season and he hasn't had one. Despite playing on the first line and first PP he is rarely noticeable and doesn't generate much offense. When I saw him last year I thought, maybe? but this year is a hard no. He is RFA. The Rangers may qualify him as a body but I would be selling my Newell Ranger jerseys.

    Once I saw Wilson was not going to be suspended I wondered if the Rangers were going to bring him up for the Caps game.

    so yes Pack control their destiny,
    a regulation win on Thursday vs Providence
    seems to give them the Division title and Emile Francis Trophy

    Correcting the math formula to use, from PTS/GP, to the league standard
    The AHL website calculates winning %-age as PTS/(2xGP)
    TODAY (after Win)
    PROV 32/48= 0.6667
    PACK 29/46= 0.63043


    THURS IF PACK WIN IN REG
    PACK 31/48= 0.64583
    PROV 32/50= 0.64

    I wouldn't be surprised, but I do doubt it.

    However, in the case for calling him up I would say 2 things. First, you never know what can happen with a player. Sometimes they just need a shot and they run with it.(This is unlikely of course cause the players we see this with are typically more talented such as Lindgren, McDonagh, Kreider, etc) Second, sometimes its good to have a guy like that come through the room for a few games to remind everybody that they aren't just there to collect a paycheck. Gabriel for the Sharks seemed to help light a fire for that team. They have since fallen off cause their team just isn't good enough, but they stayed in it longer than I thought.

    It's too bad the Rangers have a game the same day as the Pack. Would have been nice to get Barron or Reunanen back for the last game or something.

    I know it's a joke of a season but it would be a nice feather in Hartford's cap to come out on top.

    It's obvious the Pack miss both of them. Fewer chances created without them. Guitari replaces Reunanen on power play and difference is big. But Providence has had lots of players called up this year. So you play with who you got.
