Ryan Strome (NYI 2011 1st) scoring his 7th goal of the season.
The goal which extends Strome's scoring streak to 9 games (7-5-12) was about the only highlight for his Niagara IceDogs who lost to the Oshawa Generals 5-3 on Thursday evening.
Strome scored a power play goal at 1:40 of the 2nd period to give Niagara a 2-1 lead but after that it was all Oshawa as they scored 3 unanswered goals to take command and the win.
Fellow Islander prospect Mitchell Theoret (2011 7th) was scoreless as the IceDogs lost for the first time in regulation in 6 games.
Christian Thomas sat out Game #3 of his 10 game suspension.
Andrew Yogan (NYR 2010 3rd) was scoreless and a -2 as his Peterborough Petes jumped out to a 4-1 lead and then held on for a 4-3 win over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Since his 6 game scoring streak ended; Yogan has only 1 point in his last 5 games.
We hate seeing someone who has this much talent just not figure out how to put everything together. It is frustrating because if you gave Brandon Prust who is 95% heart even half the skill set that Yogan has then you would have a true life superstar.
Fellow Ranger Prospect Peter Ceresnak (2011 6th) also was scoreless and we wonder if he has already hit his rookie wall. Ceresnak is scoreless in his last 7 games and has only a -6 to show for it.
Got to wonder if he too needs a chance to watch from above.
Thursday was quiet but the Ranger Round Table that we are apart of posted what your Ranger bloggers have felt about the team for games 6-10. This time the blog is over at SNYRangersblog and it makes for good reading to seeing what the diverse blogger minds are thinking about the Rangers.
