I wish the Rats would get around to finally set up their player stats-page. Kind of anoying not being able to follow how the Canes prospects are doing.

Yes we are starting to pick it up also. Played three games in three nights this weekend and won them all. They are really starting to play much much better.

I've noticed that 3 games and 3 nights scheduling for a couple of seasons now. Sounds pretty exhausting if it wasn't for having the rest of the week off.

It does get pretty exhausting on the guys. Even more if they have to travel a long way like they did on this trip they had this weekend to Milwaukee on Thursday Peoria on Friday and to Grand Rapids on Saturday. But the AHL trys to keep the games to the Weekends as much as possible. I mean we have games on Wednesday nights and maybe a game or 2 on other nights but they mainley try and keep the games for Friday Saturday and Sundays because they are the days that teams seem to draw well down here.

Is Stephen Peat hurt or is there some other reason for him not playing at all this year? Thanks.
Yes he is hurt. I beleive they said he hurt his hamstring. They said he should be in the lineup at the end of November or the first week of December.

hahahaa... this was vs. Lowell too, no less. That's funny somehow. Thanks for the update, Max, our trusty Rat-supporter. :D
No a problem. And to be honest that was the one of the best games if not the best game I have seen the Rats play in quiet a long time. The Rats have played some great games this season but not as good as last night. They played about as perfect a game as a team can play. We outshot them 47-18 our power play was 4-8. We only gave them 2 powerplays. And of course Keith Aucoin what else can I say about Keith he was once agin brilliant. And Shane Willis was also brilliant. They played a full 60 minutes instead of 40 or 50 minutes. Keith has been brilliant all season long for us.

They played great in this game also. Not as great as the Lowell game but still played great nonetheless. Shane Willis had another 3 point game and Keith Aucoin had 4 points. Like I said about Aucoin what else can I say about him. Terrific player. He deffintaly deserves to be in the NHL. I am glad for our sake he ain't but he should be.

Isn't it a great day when your team is firing on all cylinders? :D
It sure is. It feels so good to see this team play well even after the piss poor years we had here the past 7 years under New Jersey.It is nice to have some players that care about winning and losing.
