The Whale (30-25-5-3, 68 pts.) started a six-game homestand with a pair of wins this past weekend, climbing to a high-water mark for the season of five games over .500.  Jason Missiaen rang up his second shutout of the year in a critical 3-0 victory over the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday, helping the Whale jump back ahead of Manchester in the Eastern Conference playoff race.  Then on Sunday against the Northeast Division-leading Springfield Falcons, Missiaen stopped 29 out of 31 shots as the Whale eked out a 3-2 win.  In addition to Missiaen’s heroics, Chris Kreider scored in both games, including his first career pro shorthanded goal, the game-winner, on Saturday.

This week:

It’s a busy weekend at the XL Center, with three Whale home games on tap.  The Whale get a crack at the Hershey Bears, with whom they are tied for seventh place in the Eastern Conference, on Friday night at 7:00 PM, and then the Adirondack Phantoms come to town on “Hometown Heroes Night” Saturday night (7:00).  The weekend wraps up with a Sunday matinee vs. the Binghamton Senators, with faceoff at 3;00.  Continue reading
