Shoot the puck, Barry

So they don’t score in 170 minutes, and Capuano’s proud. They win a game, and he’s aggravated. Mad at the backcheck on the goal (Mr. Letestu probably was lonely). Mad at the lack of willingness to pay the price to get to the net, in so many words. (To quote someone who was here tonight: casual and quiet.) Mad at some of the shift times.

They kept shooting, though. Kohn and MacDonald kept trying to get it there from the point.

And then they got that turnover. And then they blocked that shot. And then the puck popped free to the one spot where Greg Moore could backhand it home.

(1) 215:58, Oct. 24-Nov. 6, 2004 (92 shots)
(2) 203:38, Jan. 12-16, 2005 (unknown shots)
(3) 173:44, Oct. 18-24, 2009 (101 shots)
(4) 170:49, April 7-14, 2007 (68 shots)

Initial word was Kohn instead of Joensuu on the second assist on the winner, but that was not changed on the game sheet.

Was really hoping Jesse Boulerice would appear in a third number after the second fight, just for fun. But a nice job by Teddy and Josh to get the nameplate on No. 40.

Prescout. Micflikier, who scored the first goal, just came up from Florida today after the Whalers recalled Brandon Sutter.

The Phantoms sent a release that their Dec. 4 game against Norfolk will happen in Philadelphia, at the big building.

A winner for Ben Guite tonight.

Interesting article from our Amanda Cuda, albeit found on Stamford’s Web site, about a local doctor and his treatment of concussions in youngsters.

Great road trip story from Andrew Gross.

Sad news from San Jose, where David Pollak reports that Dan Rusanowsky recently lost his sister.

And RIP, Bill Chadwick, The Big Whistle.
