San Diego 2 vs. San Jose 3
Brandon Mashinter's goal at 5:38 of the final period sealed a 3-2 San Jose Barracuda win over the San Diego Gulls at Valley View Casino Center.
Kevin Roy scored two third period goals 2:02 apart to tie the game at 2-2. Roy's two goals marked his second multi-goal game of the season (also Oct. 7 at Tucson) and extended his career high point streak to six games (4-59) dating back to Nov. 4. Roy now has 13 points (5-813) his last nine games.
Reto Berra stopped 43-of-46 shots faced, tied for the most shots he has faced this season (Jan. 5 vs. San Jose in a 5-0 shutout). Despite the setback, Berra has posted a 2.16 goals-against average and .939 save percentage with one shutout his last seven starts.
Kalle Kossila, Corey Tropp, Dennis Rasmussen and Julius Nattinen each recorded assists.
Sam Carrick appeared in his 300th AHL contest tonight.
Attendance was 12,920, a sellout. San Diego has sold out three games this season (also Oct. 14 and Nov. 10). The Gulls continue to lead the AHL in attendance (9,386 average).
San Diego Gulls Kevin Roy, on the game, "We had some ups and downs. I think when we play our style, put it in deep and go to work we are all over them. We just need to be better 60 minutes and take care of the puck. It fed a lot of their offense there so you take care of the puck and don't let those shots against. The good thing is we are back tomorrow against the same team so we can get that done." On his two goals in the third, "The first one it was just a good change, I got off the bench and got a nice pass and the D had a tough gap because I was getting off the bench so I just made a little move to get out of the way and took a shot on net and it ended up going in. The second one was a power play and it was a good feed from Kossila and I got it back to him and he hit the post and then I just put it in the back of the net." On their tight schedule, "It can't really be, if you are playing professional hockey you got to be ready every night and you have to play 60 minutes."
Head Coach Dallas Eakins, on the disallowed goal late in the third period, "The referee made a mistake. He lost sight of the puck, it was still loose. It's a good goal, but his job is, and he couldn't see it, so an honest mistake by the referee." On the game, "It was up and down. We gave them two goals, the first one and the third one. The shorthanded goal was just one that was bad luck. It jumped over our stick. But I don't care. On any night you can't gift a team two goals. It's going to come back and bite you. I like the way that we kept playing, staying in it, and it was disheartening to get that last one called back because I thought our guys really worked hard through the second half of the game." On the busy schedule lately, "It is certainly a time where we could use a little bit more rest. I am big on that, but hey that's life of a professional hockey player. We are not going to use lots of games as an excuse ever here."
