Czech Republic – Switzerland Under-16 teams Game 3 recap

by Robert Neuhauser
on

By Robert Neuhauser and Ivana Paulova

After 4:0 and 3:1 losses in the three-game series played in the Czech Republic last week
the Swiss team was eager to capture at least one victory in this series. On Sunday they had
the last chance. The contest took place in Slany and the audience could look forward to an
interesting match. Two different styles met there. The Czechs use their typical smart game
and rely on skill and finesse while the Swiss play with high determination and tend to
fire the pucks and look for rebounds and loose pucks.

The Czechs gave chance to all three of their goalies and this time stood Slavia Praha midgets
netminder Petr Bezunk between the pipes. The Swiss brought two goalies to the Czech Republic
and in this game coach Charly Oppliger has put his faith in Igor Rossi. Both sides shuffled
the lineup a bit and the lines looked different than in the previous two games.

Since the opening faceoff the Czechs were dominant in the game with their individual skills,
the Swiss defense looked porous at the beginning of the game and only a piece of luck was
missing on the Czech side. The young Czechs seemed to fly on the ice and could take
advantage of one-on-one situations, where they were better. The first quality chance came
three minutes into the game, Radomir Cizek fired from the top right faceoff circle, Rossi made
the save but allowed a rebound. Vaclav Meindl tried to lift the puck over the Swiss goalie
before the Swiss defensemen checked him down on the ice. Read more»

ICE Warriors on the Road

ICE Warriors on the Road

Five games in six nights across three provinces, one time zone now that we’ve gone into winter’s darkness of daylight-saving time and 3212 kilometers round trip of November across the Canadian Prairies. Not exactly the creme de la creme of vacations down at the local travel agency but after posting four of a possible five wins on the club’s longest road excursion of the season, it’s a trip the Kootenay ICE could be looking back on as pivotal in the road to WHL mastery. Prior to their success in Saskatchewan, the ICE were a less than desirable 3-5-1 away from the confines of the Cranbrook Rec/Plex, with two of those victories coming against lower echelon clubs in Vancouver and Kelowna. Coming off a loss to the Calgary Hitmen at home and ending a nine game unbeaten streak in the process, the ensuing road trip that lay ahead was a question mark.

Consider the question answered.

Super Svatos – Some observations from afar: Any questions about the stability of the shoulder of one Marek Svatos can now be safely put to rest. “The doctor said at least one month before I can come back but it only a couple of weeks,” said Svatos of his shoulder injury before the club left for its road trip. “It feels pretty good. I feel good.” Feels good? Potting seven goals (four on the power-play and two being game winners), six assists for thirteen points to put the slick Slovak atop the WHL leader board with teammate Tomas Plihal at 35 points. One behind the Lethbridge Hurricane’s Nathan Barrett with 36. Leading the league with 21 goals and averaging alm Read more»

Albany Week in Review

Rats skid to bottom of league

Rookie coaches, Bob Carpenter, Geordie Kinnear (assistant) and Chris Terreri (goaltender coach), are still looking for the right chemistry for the young team to gel together. Bolstered in recent weeks by the addition of Bruce Gardiner (F), Steve Guolla (C) and Joel Bouchard (D), the River Rats remain winless on the road (0-7) and have only one win in 14 contests.

In the past week, two defensemen (Sascha Goc and Josef Boumedienne) were traded, with the Devils acquiring blueliner Andrei Zyuzin from Tampa Bay in exchange. (See below, “Defensemen traded,” for more details.)

The River Rats have been blown out of only one game this season, a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of the Worcester Ice Cats on October 20. Most of the losses have been one- or two-goal games. However, the cumulative deficit of goals-for versus goals-against (-22) is the worst in the league. The deficit in shots-for versus shots-against (-171) explains why the Rats are last in the 27-team league in shots-for (22.79 per game) and second-last in shots-against (35.00).

The players either have been unable, or unwilling, to follow coach Carpenter’s repeated admonitions to get the puck in deep in the attack zone. As a result, time of possession in the offensive zone is substantially less than in their own zone. Goaltenders, despite decent work in net, have paid the price.

It has been three weeks since the River Rats won a game, their 6-3 victory at home against Portland. Since then, the team has the unenviable distinction of having the league’s longest Read more»
