Lowell Inches Closer to Playoff Berth
Devils’ magic number is three with three games left on schedule The Lowell Devils (37-30-4-6) were able to inch closer to a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs, despite only snagging one win in three games this week. The Devils were defeated by the Monarchs for the second straight Wednesday, 4-3, and were handed another loss on Friday, 5-2, against the Hartford Wolf Pack. Lowell was able to salvage the week by virtue of a 3-2 overtime win on Saturday over the first-place Worcester Sharks. The victory, coupled with two Norfolk losses over the weekend, lowered the Devils’ magic number to three. The Devils finish their 2009-2010 regular season schedule with three games in three days over the weekend. Lowell hosts the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Friday as the two teams battle for the final
postseason berth in the Atlantic Division. The Devils travel to Portland on Saturday before returning home to battle Providence on Sunday. Lowell is currently alone in fourth place in the division with 84 points, two ahead of Bridgeport. Rewind: Wednesday, Devils 3 vs. Monarchs 4 Manchester goaltender Matt Lopes made his professional debut in relief of injured starter Jeff Zatkoff and made 42 saves as the Monarchs rallied for a 4-3 win over the Devils at the Tsongas Center. Brad Mills put Lowell up, 1-0, just 49 seconds into contest and Patrick Davis added one for the Devils less than five minutes later. The Monarchs would go on to take the lead on the strength of four unanswered goals, led by Jonathan Zeiler’s pair of markers. Lopes, who came into the game after Davis’ tally, would allow only a breakaway goal by Matt Halischuk midway through the third en route to his first pro win. Friday, Devils 2 vs. Wolf Pack 5 Lowell was almost able to erase a three-goal deficit against Hartford, but ultimately fell, 5-2, at the XL Center. Ryan Garlock and Dale Weise each scored over a span of 1:14 early in the second to help the Wolf Pack establish a 3-0 cushion. The Devils would respond in the opening minutes of the third and get within one as Olivier Magnan and David McIntyre found the back of the net 49 seconds apart. Hartford would pull away again for good on markers by Paul Crowder and Bobby Sanguinetti. Jeff Frazee took the loss with 24 saves on 29 shots. Saturday, Devils 3 vs. Sharks 2
