Its been a few weeks since we have looked in on our AHL brethren, the Portland Pirates. The last time we checked, they were leading the Atlantic Division and hadn't lost at home. While they have lost a home game now, they still hold a decent lead in the Atlantic Division. Here are the standings:
|Bridgeport Sound Tigers||8||11||0||16|
|Hartford Wolf Pack||6||11||2||16|
Following the jump, player stats and future games for the Pirates.
One of the main reasons why the Pirates are doing so well is their offensive output. Their 67 goals for are second best in the AHL, 2 behind the Hershey Bears, affiliate of the Washington Capitals. Luke Adam is third in the league with 11 goals and second among all rookies. Below are the top 10 skaters for the Pirates:
As far as goaltenders go, David Leggio has the better stats for the Pirates with each playing nine games this season. With Miller out, the Pirates will be leaning on Leggio but with the Sabres only playing three games in the next 11 days, Enroth should see some time with the Pirates as well. Here are the goaltender stats:
The Pirates will take the holidays off and return to action on Friday November 26th against the Springfield Falcons. They then travel to Manchester for a game against the Monarchs on Saturday the 27th and to Providence to play the Bruins on the 28th.
