  1. Here's the video of both things you mentioned. AWESOME GAME!!! Shootout finish
  2. Dawgs highlights are on now you tube including the last 49 seconds. Caffrey was amazing. Gutsy win.
  3. Great road win tonight. Really pleased with the 4 point weekend, especially considering the opposition!!!
  4. What a frustrating loss. Dawgs had a one goal lead with 5 minutes to go and take a penalty that leads to the tying goal. Dang - so close.
  5. That's a good road win. Hopefully, we can repeat the performance Saturday night in Roanoke!
  6. Here's the highlights of Saturday night's overtime win. Way to Go, Dawgs
  7. As usual, Coach Dan came out on the concourse after the game to thank the fans for their support. His comments started with "we're getting there." I told them the first 20 minutes was just about as good as it gets, he quickly replied that he didn't like the way we came out in the second period, which was certainly fair. I think he is going to demand perfection from the guys, which can be nothing but good. Let's get the sweep Saturday night!!! GO DAWGS!!!
  8. That first period was the best 20 minutes the Dawgs have played in the past 3 years. A bit of a let down at the start of the 2nd, but then closed really strong. Fun game to watch. Saturday night should be a classic!!!!
  9. It look off the crossbar to me. Hopefully, that is their break for the weekend!
  10. Tough schedule this weekend for the Bolts - game tonght then getting on the road for two games at Roanoke.
  11. This is the domino effect of Arizona's starting goalie Antti Raanta going to IR. Arizona recalled Hunter Miska from Tuscon and Reichenbach got called up to take his spot in Tuscon. That still leaves 3 goalies on the Tuscon roster. Glad to see Brad get a shot although would love to have him in Roanoke. Arizona Press Release
  12. Just announced: ROANOKE, Va. – The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs announced on Tuesday that defensemen Cam Bakker and Vojtech Zemlicka have each been signed to contracts. Bakker opened the season with the ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays but did not appear in a game before being released on Monday. He played 25 games for the Dawgs last season and finished with one goal, 12 assists and a +4 plus/minus rating. A graduate of nearby Liberty University, Bakker is in his second season as a professional. He was placed on the Roanoke protected list following the 2017-18 season Zemlicka began the 2018-19 campaign with the Knoxville Ice Bears and played in two games while recording one assist. The 23-year-old Czech Republic native also played 34 games with the Mississippi RiverKings last season and had a goal and 16 assists. During his time with the RiverKings he was a teammate of current Rail Yard Dawg Dillan Fox. Announcement
  13. Since Henley was the "future consideration" on the Bronner trade, you could say that.
  14. Probably a good thing. Have to do something with a 1-3 start.
  15. Here's a story on their two primary goalies, who seem to share time equally. It doesn't explain the third goalie - out of Hartford - Merrick Madison, who hasn't played in Tuscon. The transaction log of 10/27 says he was "reassigned by Arizona from Norfolk." I can't find an explanation as to why. Looks like he is big time prospect that Arizona really likes, but if they're not going to play him in Tuscon, send him back to Norfolk, where he can see playing time. Last week's story
