Hartford Gets Their Comeuppance

by Anne


HOW 'BOUT THEM PIRATES! Take THAT for beating us in OT, Hartford!

Pirates win YET AGAIN. This time over the Hartford Wolf Pack. Matt Ellis scores his first of the season, TK adds another along with Chris Butler and Mathieu Darche. Mark Mancari adds a helper extending his point streak to 8 games!!! Woooooo!!! That assist notches him one point closer to tying and hopefully regaining the points lead in the AHL. Weeee!! Gerbe and Kennedy are now on 5 game point streaks and Mathieu Darche is nursing a 4 game goal streak. Good. Stuff.

Adam Dennis made 30 saves on 32 shots. We have quite the goaltending tandem. Together they've combined for 12-1-1. The team is tied with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers for best goal differential, only 2 teams have allowed fewer goals and only 3 teams have scored more and they lead the league in team points per game. 14 games - 25 points out of a possible 28.

Mark Mancari is on pace to score somewhere in the neighborhood of 62 goals. That's as many goals as he scored in the previous three seasons COMBINED.

Happy Dance!! Next game Friday at Providence.

ETA: I just discovered the Providence Bruins play at the Dunkin Donuts Center and for some reason that made me giggle.

  1. 12-1-1 is glorious.

    I'm joining you in following the Pirates. They play in Maine... Maine is such a safe place, doncha think?

  2. I'm even wearing my Gerbe shirt today! Those Pirates are such studs, every single one of them. Their record is crazy good. I mean, they really seem unbeatable.

    I know it's early, but I totally see them taking a serious run at the Calder Cup this year. I'm pretty sure they got to the semis/finals last year but I can't really remember. I think they were beaten by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

    Oh, Mark Mancari. *swoons*

  3. WHY COULDN'T THE PIRATES BE OUR FARM TEAM ALL ALONG??? I mean, when our guys played with the Panthers' guys, the Amerks sucked. And guess what? The Pirates are doing FANTASTIC, and the Amerks still suck. Can you see my logic here??

  4. I decided last night I'm wearing my Gerbe shirt friday. I'm glad we're all in agreement that we need to take drastic measures.

    I KNOW!Yeah I think they got to the Conference finals, but they weren't our team last year so I'm not sure. They're BEASTS!!!

    The Amerks are like 2-14-1. THAT IS LIKE AWFUL BEYOND COMPREHENSION. There is something beautiful in the Maine air. I have a theory that MarkyMark had some crazy girlfriend in Rochester and he's now free from her clutches and his game has FLOURISHED.

    I need myself a Gerbe/Pirates shirt to ease the transition.

    If only that were true... His girlfriend, who is in Rochester, is actually really cool, from what I've heard about her. I mean, idk if they're still together, but same difference. Kim and I used to say she was a crazy psycho just because we love Mark, but I must say, I like your theory.
