Week 8 In Review: Because You’re Hot or You’re Cold

The season of extremes continues for the Devils.  After a hot week last week that saw them sweep all three games, it was back down during a busy 4 game week.  What had potential for 8 points turned into a 3 point week, thanks to a penalty box parade and a dried up offense due to call-ups to New Jersey.

11/29 at Bridgeport: 5-4 L (SO)

To start the week and end the month of November, the Devils returned to the same place where they started it…Bridgeport, for a rare Tuesday night matchup against the Sound Tigers.  After a scoreless first period, the teams combined for 5 goals in the second.  On an early power play, Ben Sexton would pick up his 4th goal of the season for a 1-0 Devil advantage.  Kevin Rooney would double the Albany lead with his 5th goal, but then the Sound Tigers would make a comeback.  Former Devil Steve Bernier would cut the the lead in half with a power play goal, his 8th of the season.  Barely two minutes later, Jesse Graham would tie the game up with a power play goal.  Finally, Ben Holmstrom’s first goal of the season would put the hosts ahead 3-2.  But the Devils were not about to go away quietly, taking the lead back early in the third.  In a span of 5:50, Max Novak (2nd) and John Quenneville (7th, also a PP) would put Albany back on top 4-3.  Bridgeport would re-tie the game 4 minutes later on Joshua Winquist’s 5th goal of the year.  The game would end up going into overtime, where both teams were undefeated (Albany 4-0, Bridgeport 5-0), so something had to give.  After 5 minutes proved fruitless, it was on to the shootout, where Brian Gibbons, Blake Pietila, and Quenneville were unable to connect against Sound Tigers goaltender Eamon McAdam.  Mackenzie Blackwood was able to stop Andrew Rowe and Bracken Kearns in the first two rounds, but could not stop Jon Landry in Round 3, giving Bridgeport the extra point.  It was a mixed night for Blackwood, as he stopped 25 of 29 shots.  Quenneville would add two assists, while Sexton, Rooney, and three others had one assist each.

12/2 vs. Utica: 2-1 L

The Devils kicked off the month of December with a home and home series against the Comets, starting off in the Capital Region on Friday night.  Albany managed to kill off a double minor and 5 on 3 situation early in the first period, but would find themselves down late.  Andrey Pedan and Jake Virtanen would score near identical goals on Ken Appleby 1:06 apart for a 2-0 Comet advantage after the first 20 minutes.  Albany would finally play a strong second period, only allowing five shots on goal and cutting the lead in half on a Rod Pelley goal, his fourth of the season.  The Devils defense stepped up in the third, only allowing four Utica shots, but were unable to pick up the tying goal on Comets rookie goaltender Thatcher Demko.  The win marked the first ever win in regulation for the Comets against the Devils (they won twice during the regular season in overtime, along with Game 3 of the division finals).  Appleby did not have much to face in stopping 15 of 17 shots, but wound up the hard luck loser.  Andrew MacWilliam and Jan Mandat had the lone helpers.

Highlight Reel:

12/3 at Utica: 3-1 L

It was off to Exit 31 of the Thruway on Saturday to finish off the home and home set.  Albany survived an extended period of being shorthanded late in the first period thanks to 3 straight calls in a 2:43 span (including a questionable double minor), but could not generate any offense against Thatcher Demko.  In the second, while on an extended power play of their own, a turnover near the bench ended up on the stick of Darren Archibald, who skated in alone on Mackenzie Blackwood and connected on a shorthanded goal for a 1-0 Comet lead.  Not to be outdone, Blake Coleman would pick up a shorthanded tally of his own (while Rod Pelley was serving another questionable double minor call) to tie the game at 1.  Penalties would in the end cost the Devils this one though…on two consecutive kills with less than 7 minutes to go in regulation, Carter Bancks would score twice in a 1:26 span to put Utica ahead 3-1.  A combination of that and Demko playing outstanding once again was too much for Albany to overcome, and they were swept by the Comets in the home and home set.  Blackwood stopped 29 of 32 shots in the loss.

12/4 vs. Binghamton: 3-1 W

The marathon week finished back on home ice on Sunday afternoon, as the Devils looked to avenge a humiliating loss to the Senators from mid-November.  And it didn’t take long for the home team to get on the board, as Kevin Rooney picked up his 6th goal less than four minutes into the contest for a 1-0 lead.  Blake Pietila would double the lead late in the second with 2:36 remaining in the second period, his 7th of the season.  Binghamton would break up Ken Appleby’s shutout bid with 7:29 to go in the third on a Phil Varone goal.  The Devils regained their two goal lead on a questionable goal call…during a scrum in front of Binghamton goaltender Matt O’Connor, the puck just managed to slide over the goal line.  Although it appeared that the entire puck did not make it across, the referee called it a good goal, awarded to Joe Blandisi.  Albany survived a 12-3 shot differential and a late 6 on 4 to break their two game losing streak, ending a difficult week on a positive note.  Appleby picked up his 4th win and stopped 24 of 25 shots.  Blandisi and three other Devils added assists.

Highlight Reel:

My Player of the Week:

Keep an eye on Kevin Rooney, who outside of Joe Blandisi had a very good week with two goals and an assist.  He has mostly been a third line center, but his strong play of late has seen him jump up to first line with the Devils struggling to create offense in recent days.

+/-: Vojtech Mozik (+10)

Penalty Minutes: Andrew MacWilliam (46)

Wins: Scott Wedgewood (5)

GAA: Ken Appleby (1.59)

Save Percentage: Ken Appleby (.930)

Up North with the Thunder:

A solid week for Adirondack on home ice as they went 2-1.  On Tuesday, they picked up a 4-2 win over Manchester, as Ty Loney picked up his 9th goal and Mathieu Brodeur added two assists.  Friday night they started a 2 game set against Colorado with a 5-1 win.  Brian Ward picked up his 11th goal of the season, Brodeur added two more helpers (before being summoned to Syracuse on a PTO for Saturday), and Brandon Baddock picked up his first professional point with an assist in the third.  Colorado would earn a split of the two game series with a 6-2 win.  Alex Wall and Greg Wolfe would each have assists in the loss.  The Thunder wrap up the homestand this week with a 2 game set against Norfolk on Tuesday and Saturday.

This Week’s Schedule:

A little bit of an easier schedule this week.  Wednesday night, Binghamton returns to the Capital District for a rematch.  Friday the Devils return to Syracuse to take on the Crunch.  Then it’s back on home ice Saturday afternoon to take on Providence.

Week 7 in Review: Redemption

When we last left the Devils, they were coming off a two game losing streak to two division foes.

But what a rebound this week, thanks to some comeback magic and a little local nostalgia…and after a 3-0 week, they are back in first place in the division.

11/22 vs. Toronto: 3-1 W

To start the week, the Devils were back at home for the first time in 10 days, but for a rare Tuesday night matchup against the Marlies.  Toronto would get off to a good start by taking a 1-0 lead midway through the first on a Byron Froese goal.  The Devils would have a golden opportunity to get on the board against Antoine Bibeau in the second…a Milan Michalek high stick to Brian Gibbons (who left temporarily to get stitched up, but he would return) gave Albany a 4 minute power play opportunity.  After their first goal attempt was waved off, Vojtech Mozik would connect for his second goal of the season during the tail end of the man advantage (yes New Jersey, your read that right…an actual Devil power play goal) to tie the game up at 1.  In the third, a great play by Miles Wood and Blake Coleman (the latter with a sweet wraparound) gave the Devils a 2-1 lead 4:59 in.  Kevin Rooney would add an insurance goal, his third of the season, with 7:42 remaining for a 3-1 advantage.  Ken Appleby, just back from a stint in Adirondack, would take care of the rest, stopping 23 of 24 shots in improving his record to 2-0 on the season.  Five Devils, including Wood, had one assist each.

Highlight Reel:

11/25 at Hartford: 4-3 W (OT)

While I was in New Jersey on Friday night, the Devils took a quick trip east to Connecticut for their first matchup of the season against a struggling Wolfpack team.  But it would be Hartford getting off to a good start in the first, as they took a 1-0 lead halfway through the period on a Chris Brown goal.  Matt Carey would double the Wolfpack lead early in the second.  The Devils would finally get on the board midway through the period on Seth Helgeson’s second goal of the season, but would find themselves back down by two goals late thanks to an Adam Tambellini tally.  But the Devils would rally, picking up goals from Kevin Rooney (his 4th) and Ben Sexton (his 3rd) in a span of 2:49 midway through the third to tie the game up at 3.  Albany would cap off the successful rally in overtime, as Miles Wood would score his 2nd goal 1:43 into the extra frame.  Mackenzie Blackwood would recover from a shaky start and stop 24 of 27 shots to pick up his 4th win.  Five different Devils would add assists.

11/26 vs. Rochester: 4-2 W

To finish off the week, it was back into the time machine to the mid 90s, as the River Rats made their triumphant return to the ice to take on Rochester.  And it looked like the power of the rat was with the current day Devils for this one.  In a span of 2:34 late in the opening period, Miles Wood (3rd) and Joe Blandisi (5th) would both pick up power play goals for a 2-0 lead.  The Rat domination would continue in the second period, as Blake Coleman (4th) and John Quenneville (6th) would score 4:25 apart for a commanding 4-0 lead.  But Rochester was not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet, as they showed a little sign of life late in the final period.  Mike Aviani and Evan Rodrigues would pick up two quick goals with less than 3 minutes to go in regulation to cut the Rats lead in half.  But they were unable to catch up any further, and Albany finished off another perfect 3-0 week.  Ken Appleby was his usual stellar self in net, stopping 19 of 21 shots to pick up his third win.  Quenneville and Brian Gibbons would each add two assists, while four others had one helper each.

My Player of the Week:

I could have easily given the nod to John Quenneville after a 5 point week, but I’m actually going to go in a different direction: give it to a guy who at this time last week was in Utah playing for the Thunder.  One injury to Scott Wedgewood later, Ken Appleby stepped in and was tremendous in net, going 2-0 and stopping 42 of 45 shots faced.

Up North with the Thunder:

A solid week for Adirondack, as they picked up three out of four points in a two game set with Florida.  Despite being outshot 29-17, Adirondack would pick up a 3-1 win on Tuesday night.  Ty Loney would score twice, while Brian Ward added two helpers.  The Thunder would rally from deficits of 3-0 and 4-3 to force overtime and a shootout, but the Everblades would finally prevail 5-4.  Mathieu Brodeur would score the tiebreaker in the third and add an assist, while Patch Alber added a goal.  The homestand continues this week with three more games, as the Thunder host Manchester on Tuesday, then welcome Colorado in for a pair on Friday and Saturday night.

This Week’s Schedule:

A busy four game week is on deck.  First, the Devils finish off November where they started it: in Bridgeport.  Tuesday they make the trip south to take on the Sound Tigers.  Then, a 3 in 3 weekend to kick off the month of December: Friday Utica makes their second visit of the season.  Saturday night the Devils travel west on the Thruway to visit the Comets to finish off a home and home.  Finally it’s back to the Capital Region on Sunday afternoon to face Binghamton.
