TWO POINTS ARE TWO POINTS

Connecticut-Whale_thumb_thumb_thumb_      VERSUS      Manchester

The Connecticut Whale should be happy they came away with the two points they got for the 5-3 win Sunday afternoon in Manchester when they faced the Monarchs at the Verizon Wireless Arena, because they certainly weren’t going to be getting any style points – if there was such a thing.

“It’s going to be a grind, with a short night and travel last night,”  Whale head coach Ken Gernander told Brian Ring afterwards. “But the guys stuck with  it, got a big goal by Casey [Wellman], and we were able to get our two points.”

ZUCCARELLO RECALLED BY RANGERS

New York RAccording to the AHL transaction wire “The Norwegian Hobbit,” Mats Zuccarello, has been recalled by the New York Rangers.

Andrew Gross reports on his Rangers Rants blog that Zuccarello will be with the Rangers for tonight’s tilt with with the New York Islanders to replace an injured Ryan Callahan. Gross also reports that ex-Whale Michael Del Zotto will also miss the game with an injured right hip. It’s ironic that, as Gross points out, Zuccarello makes his NHL return against an Islanders team that was the last one he played against in the NHL in Game Three of this season before being whisked off to Hartford.

Zuccarello has 12 goals, 24 assists in 37 games for the Whale and will be playing in his third game in three days. He would have been doing so anyway as he would have been in the lineup for today’s Whale game as well.

The Whale do not have any extra forwards on the current roster so KenGernander is likely to insert Blake Parlett into the lineup for this afternoon’s tilt with the Manchester Monarchs and run seven defenseman.

Game time is at 3pm. Follow the play-by play with us at @HowlingsToday on Twitter.
