FORGE SPLITS WEEKEND WITH SPRINGFIELD

Forge 5 Spirit 0 :
NEVILLE ISLAND (March 1, 2002) — The Pittsburgh Forge Junior A
hockey club defeated the Springfield (Mo.) Spirit by a score of 5-0 at the
Island Sports Center on Neville Island. Back-up goaltender Peter Mannino,
making his third start of the season, turned away all 31 shots he faced and
earned his first shutout. Pittsburgh, which remains in second place in the
North American Hockey League’s Eastern Division, led 1-0 after the first
period of play as Bernie Chmiel picked up his seventh goal of the season at
the 7:32 mark. Jim Thamann increased the Forge’s lead to 2-0 early in the
second period when he skated out from behind the net and stuffed the puck
behind Springfield goaltender Sean Caruso at 2:15. A three-goal surge in the
final period put the game away for Pittsburgh. The first was a power play
goal by Pat Levendusky at 7:39, and the second was a short-handed goal by
Andy Brandt at 15:02. Levendusky and Brandt are now tied for the club lead
with 20 goals each. Sean Berkstresser closed out the scoring for the evening
with a power-play goal at the 19:41 mark. It was his fifth goal of the

Penguins and Barons Game Report

by Marc Lapointe
on

Friday, March 1st, Mellon Arena.

Once again, the rivalry between Pittsburgh and Cleveland resumed with a
really exiting and passionate game. This time we’re not talking about the
Sleelers and the Browns but the Barons and the Baby Pens.

After a slow start in the first, (end up 1-1) both teams picked it up in the
second with 4 goals combined. The Pens scored 2 early and quick goals but
the Barons scored back twice in the period. In the third, the Ohio team took
the lead by an outstanding individual play by Jonathan Cheechoo after a
Brooks Orpik’s late penalty, the game seemed to be in the books for
Cleveland. But that same player who took the late call didn’t think so.
Orpik got out of the box, poke-checked the puck carrier, rushed the puck to the
net and made an unbelievable pass to Tomas Suvory for the game-tying
goal…with only 11 seconds left!

Analysis of some baby Pens and Barons players from the game :

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins :

Shane Endicott : The Pittsburgh Penguins second rounder in the 2000 draft
seems to be a good one. In fact, Endicott is on a dream season this year.
He has 19 goals and 18 assists in 54 games with Wilkes-Barre, and he was chosen
to play in the AHL all-star game. He got a one game call-up by the Big
Pens and even recorded his first NHL point ever! Endicott has good speed,
skating and stickhandling, (still at the AHL level for now), but he has to
learn how to use these skills more effectively. After a nice move or rush,
Endicott sometimes has no clue what to do wi Read more»

Scouting Staff Slimmed

With a new General Manager comes a new team philosophy and with a new philosophy comes new priorities. With emphasis being placed on team toughness and current performance, focus is being taken off of the future. In one of his first major moves as General Manager, Jay Feaster has announced that the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Scouting Staff will take a big hit in his reorganization of the team. The Bolts currently have 24 traveling scouts on their payroll. That number will be reduced to 12. Amongst those to go, is ex-Lightning Assistant Coach John Torchetti. The Lightning’s Scouting Department had previously been one of the largest in the league and had been accountable for some of the best draft picks in Lighting history.

Feaster explained, “At the beginning of the year we were handed a pot to work with and if our scouting department takes up $2.1 million and I can reduce that to say, $1 million, then that’s $1.1 million I can put into players salaries.”


More Goaltender Woes

Goaltender Brian Eklund has watched from the sidelines as his team, Brown University, enjoys one of the best streaks in recent team history. Eklund is 3-5-0, while his counter part Yanis Danis, is 11-8-2 with a 1.76 GAA. Putting Eklund, the former number one for Brown, two steps behind.

The last game Eklund appeared in was a 5-2 loss to Yale on January 11th, where he was pulled after allowing 4 goals on 20 shots.

In Eklund’s tenure at Brown, the team has never won more than 6 games a season. Now, with the team Read more»
