Found February 02, 2013 on Sox and Dawgs:
By Wil Goldsholl Hartford, CT, February 2, 2013 - In the eighth round of battle between the Connecticut Whale and the Springfield Falcons, the team from north of the border emerged victorious. Before a crowd of 13,239, the second-largest XL Center crowd in franchise history, Springfield took down Connecticut 3-2 on Saturday, and gained a 5-3-0-0 edge in the “I-91” series for the 2012-2013 season. Goals from Brandon Mashinter and J.T. Miller in the third could not overcome the Springfield scores from earlier in the game. Connecticut jumped out to an early shot advantage when Cody Goloubef was penalized for hooking at 2:02 of the first period. Connecticut saw their fair share of chances after the power play ended. Shortly thereafter, Springfield goaltender Curtis McElhinney, who leads the league with six shutouts, got tied up with teammate Greg Amadio as Mashinter got dumped in front when the puck came to him. Springfield opened scoring at 8:09, when Dylan Prout and Go...

Anisimov Powers Columbus Blue Jackets to Victory

Although Buckeye Chuck once again predicted an early spring, the Blue Jackets put forth what was likely their strongest 60 minutes of hockey...

Red Wings-Blue Jackets quick take: egg-laying made easy

I don't know what the *#$%@& happened between last night's 5-3 victory over St. Louis and tonight's 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets--which was neither the fault of Niklas Kronwall nor Jimmy Howard--but my God, if the Wings think that they can play through the next ten slates of back-to-back games by slaying a dragon one night and being slain the next, they aren...

DET flew into CBJ last night coming off a huge win and an epic performance by their Captain.  Zetterberg had a hand in every Red Wing point last night:  3G, 2A, 5pts, +3, he willed his team to victory; truly impressive. It'll be interesting to see how much gas the Wings have left in their tank.  CBJ aren't very good at all, 1.62 G/G (29), 3.12 GA/G (22), 0.42 5-5 F/A...
