WHALE WEEKLY: January 3-9, 2011

Connecticut WhaleThe Whale (18-13-2-5, 43 pts.) celebrated the turn of the year by winning three out of four divisional games this past week, to move into sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Division.  The Whale scored overtime wins in both ends of a home-and-home series with Portland, 2-1 in Hartford on Wednesday and 5-4 on the road Friday, with former Pirate Tim Kennedy scoring the winner in both games for his first career AHL overtime scores and the first-ever OT winners by the same player in consecutive games in franchise history.  The Whale then laid a 6-2 thumping on the Providence Bruins at the XL Center on Saturday for their eighth straight home win, before seeing that streak come to an end in a 3-0 loss Sunday to division-leading Manchester.  Besides Kennedy’s two overtime tallies, the biggest offensive contribution came from defenseman Wade Redden, who had seven assists in the three games he played before having to miss Sunday’s game due to an injury.
