Today in the "A": Friday Wrapup

The Falcons didn't do themselves any favors on Friday night, dropping a 3-0 decision to the Manchester Monarchs. The loss coupled with some untimely wins dropped the Falcons four points back in the playoff hunt. Around the AHL Friday night:

Norfolk 3 at Adirondack 1
Best in the league Norfolk extended their winning streak to 13. The Phantoms ran into the same buzz saw that Springfield saw last weekend, really hurting their playoff chances.

Bridgeport 3 at Connecticut 4 SO
The Whale's first three shooters all scored, while Bridgeport's first three came up empty. Goalie Chad Johnson was voted the game's #1 star.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 3 at Providence 2 SO
Former Falcon Colin McDonald scored the only shootout goal, in the sixth round to seal the deal for WBS.

Albany 1 at Syracuse 2 SO
Another former Falcon, Jean-Francois Jacques picked up the shootout winner in this game. In case you were wondering, Antero Nittymaki served as backup to Iiro Tarkki for Syracuse.

Portland 4 at Worcester 6
Worcester scored three first period goals, chasing Justin Pogge from the Portland net and never looked back. Tim Kennedy picked up a goal and two assists to pace the Shark attack.

Tonight on tap in the A, the Falcons return home when they take on Syracuse. Elsewhere in the AHL:

Albany at Adirondack

Like Springfield, Adirondack is in a position where they can't afford to drop any four pointers.

Manchester at Portland
Currently 9 and 10 in the conference, respectively, Portland felt the sting of walking away with no points on Friday. They'll need to rebound on Saturday.

Providence at Worcester
It's Logan Couture bobblehead night at the DCU Center. Your humble Cannon blogger will be on hand in Worcester for this one.
