The Springfield Falcons scored twice in two separate bursts including one late before winning in a shootout over a forward-depleted Connecticut Whale at the XL Center Saturday night 5-4.
Kris Newbury, Jonathan Audy-Marchessault, Andreas Thuresson and Jordan Owens were unsuccessful in their shootout attempts. Only Brendan Bell managed to score for the Whale while Brent Regner tied the shootout in the Falcon’s fourth attempt and Matt Culvert made a tremendous move that beat Chad Johnson (10-6-4, 26 saves) clinching the win.
