Quietly They Played

The only highlight that came out of the 2 games involving New York Islander and New York Ranger prospects was 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.
