Amerks at Utica 2/22

Post by insagt1 » Fri Feb 22, 2019 5:56 pm

George Washingtons birthday today....used to be the one day off we got in February. Hope the Amerks don't decide to take the day off. Very important '4 point' game tonite against a very good Comets team. Amerks will try and add to their modest 3 game win streak...and at the same time stay ahead of all opponents. The team plays well on the road...not quite as awesome lately, but still good.

We hear that Nylander is back. We'll all be watching him carefully....hoping that he grabs the attention of some GM out there who is looking for a young 1st round draft pick gone stale. (please)
O'Regan getting a look with the Sabres. We'll miss him considering Smith is still there too. Yeah, now we know which roster spot Nylander takes. Wilson up too...no loss there. Pilut back. Thats a big plus!

Tough break for Jonas...what happened?

Chemistry on the team is pretty good right now. They have two tough games coming up and they can win them both. Lets hope they do.

After "you know who" was coughing the puck up all night and the Comets got off to the 3 goal lead, I'll certainly take the OT win and giving them a point. A great comeback for our two points!

No surprise the team was worst with 92 on the ice.

Awesome comeback. Proved all of us wrong after saying it was over when it was 3-0. and I'll take it!

Does the team have some faults....sure...every team does....but they are the 2nd best team in the AHL. Charlotte is the best with 77 points in 56 games played...whom the Amerks lost the first 2 games of the season to. The Amerks have 71 points in 54 games. So the way I see it...the Amerks are a pretty good team. Not all is bad in Amerks land IMO.

What is bad is how they disappear for long stretches and give up goals in bunches. Taylor was ticked at the play of his key players. When asked about how good it was to have Pilut and Smith back...he didn't hesitate to answer with...no one played good.
