s18 - Pre-Season Fallout [WB2]

2021-04-26

After going 1-3-1 in per-season games, the Scouts are happy to see the pre-season come to an end. Of the course of the five games the Scouts played, the Scouts opened the pre-season with a 4-3 victory over the Blackhawks. The duo of Jason Spezza and Joffrey Lupul finished the game with three goals and two assists, Spezza with two goals and an assist, Lupul with a goal and an assist.

The next game saw the Scouts play in a heavy game against the Wild, as both teams had close to thirty hits apiece, with the Wild having over twenty minutes in penalties, and the Scouts not far behind with seventeen. A donnybrook between P.L. Letourneau-Lablond and Darius Kasparaitis broke out in the third period and ended in a draw. The Wild outshot the Scouts 40-27 and won the game 2-1 on a goal from David Legwand on the power-play. Ponikarovsky scored the lone goal for the Scouts.

Another hard-hitting game was in store for the Scouts when the club took on the Blues. The Blues had thirty hits but were able to limit the penalties to a minimum, but the Scouts had twenty-five hits and twenty-four minutes in penalties, which led to Lundqvist having a busy night facing over forty shots. Scoring for the Blues opened in the first period with a pair of power-play goals from Jussi Jokinen and Pavel Bure. The Blues would hold the lead until the third period, when Lupul one of his two goals on the night early in the period. With under two minutes left in the game, Lupul would score his second goal. Jason Spezza finished with two assists, and the Blues and Scouts went home with the draw.

Central Division hockey never disappoints. The Red Wings and Scouts had a close fought battle all game, with lots of hitting and penalty of penalties between both clubs. The special teams were busy, as both clubs scored two power-play goals, and Blake Wheeler even had a penalty shot, which “Big Game” Corey Crawford stopped. After a full sixty minutes, the score tied at three, Sanderson scored for the Red Wings and 4-3 win. Both Lupul and Spezza had two point apiece.

In the Scouts final pre-season game, the Scouts lost to the Admirals, 4-2 in another heavy battle between a divisional foe. Both teams were collecting penalties but neither power-play were able to put the puck in the net.

Overall, the pre-season was not kind to the Scouts but both Lupul and Spezza looked fantastic. All the new additions looked good, including Roloston who still looks to be adjusting to the Central brand of hockey.

When it comes to the Wyoming Cowboys, the club was able to finish with a 3-2 record and several bright spots including Mathias Tjarnqvist with six points, Radek Martinek and Petteri Nokelainen with five points, and Sergei Shirokov with four points. All four goalies played in games, but only Milan Hnilicka looked bad with SAV% under .900 and a GAA of 4.54. The Cowboys look prime and ready to chase some steer.
