Foligno, Leggio stifle Dogs
Written By Kris Baker on Sunday, January 15, 2012 | 1/15/2012
Foligno, who scored the game winner just 17-seconds into the middle frame and added an empty-netter in the final minute, now has 12 goals through his first 36 games. Given his projection as a checker, that number rates well compared to some other recent AHL graduates through their first 36 games: Nathan Gerbe (21), Luke Adam (17), Tyler Ennis (11).
Leggio impressed with several big stops in the third as the Amerks were forced to kill a Jonathan Parker boarding penalty with three minutes to play.
Corey Tropp did not dress for a second straight night, while Drew Schiestel was made a healthy scratch (EDIT - there seems to be conjecture over the Schiestel scratch; will wait for statements regarding lingering knee soreness).
Foligno: 2G, +1, 3 SOG
Parker: A, +2
Crawford: A, +1
Szydlowski: A, +1
Brennan: 2 SOG
Fienhage: 2 PIM
Boychuk: 1 SOG
Kassian: -1, 3 SOG
The Amerks (17-13-5-3, 42 points, 2nd in North Division) will now prepare for a Thursday/Friday series with Olkahoma City.
