Albany opened up a 2-0 series lead against Utica in their opening round matchup last week. Through 2 games their PP is at 37.5% while their PK is at 100.0%.

Injury Update: Blake Coleman (left shoulder), Chris McKelvie (upper body), and Blake Pietila were sidelined.

Transactions: Albany signed Blake Speers and Colton White to ATO's last Tuesday after their OHL playoff run came to an end. Both guys are unlikely to feature in the playoffs but being around the team should be a good experience for them.

Friday 4/22: Albany defeated Utica 3-2 to take a 1-0 series lead. Ben Thomson, Reid Boucher, and Joseph Blandisi had the goals. Vojtech Mozik, Nick Lappin, Pavel Zacha, Jim O'Brien, Mike Sislo, and Matt Lorito picked up an assist each. O'Brien had 5 shots as the Devils outshot the Comets 29-14. Albany didn't allow Utica to get a shot on goal in the 2nd period. Scott Wedgewood made 12 saves on 14 shots. Albany went 1/5 on the PP and 2/2 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Adirondack closed out their opening round series 4-1 with a 3-0 victory over Manchester. Ben Johnson was a +1 in Game 5 while Joe Faust was even with 2 PIM and 2 shots. Ken Appleby continued his strong play with a 33 save shutout. They will take on South Carolina in the next round.

Prospect of the Week

Once again, John Quenneville will pick up this week's honors as he continues his strong play for Brandon. This should come as no surprise as he's typically been a clutch player in his WHL career with 51 points in 41 playoff games.

ADevil of the Week

I'm going to split this week's honors between Jim O'Brien and Reid Boucher. O'Brien posted 2 goals, 2 assists, +2, and 9 shots in Albany's first 2 playoff games. Boucher had a similar stat line with 2 goals, 2 assists, +2, and 7 shots.

Your Take

How far do you think Quenneville and Brandon will go? Do you think Blackwood can lead Barrie to a comeback? What are your thoughts on Albany's first 2 playoff games? How about Appleby? Leave your comments below and thank you for reading!
