Titans Get Jacked Up In Elmira

(PR) Elmira, NY – The Trenton Titans, proud ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, went to Elmira looking for four points and an end to their six-game winless streak. A win in the first of a two game set on Friday took care of the streak, but the Jackals wouldn’t let them leave Saturday with all four points. Riding the strength of three power play goals, Elmira (7-6-1, 15 points) got the split at home behind a 5-1 win before 2,500 fans at First Arena and ending a six-game winless streak of its own.

Trenton (6-7-0-1, 13 points) entered the night with 27-straight penalty kills, but Elmira put an end to that quickly with a Louie Caporusso goal on the Jackals first opportunity at 2:09 of the first.

Trenton tried to fight back, but kept catching penalty after penalty, playing a man down five times in the frame. The last one carried over into the second and proved to be a back breaker.

Andrew Rowe struck 33 seconds into the period during a delayed penalty to make it 2-0. Then Kyle Bushee beat Niko Hovinen (2-4-0-1, 24 saves) at 2:06 on the new power play. Three power play goals in six tries gave the Titans a 3-0 hole they would not be able to climb out of.

Rob Bellamy and Rowe’s second of the night gave the Jackals a 5-0 lead through two, before Andy Bohmbach finally ended the shutout attempt of goalie Maxime Clermont (2-3-1, 26 saves). Bohmbach scored his sixth of the year on the power play, using a wrister from the top of the right circle to beat Clermont with eight minutes left to play.

On the night Elmira – the number one power play at home (33%) and second best in the league overall (29.7%) – went 3-for-8 on the power play, while Trenton ended up 1-for-3 on the man advantage.

The two sides will meet again in Trenton, NJ, for a two-game set on Saturday December 1st (7:05 pm) and Sunday December 2ns (4:05 pm) at the Sun National Bank Center.

After The Horn

With their PPG, the Titans ended Elmira’s perfect PK at home. The Jackals had 32 straight kills to start the season.

With an assist tonight, Stephen Schultz has a point in three straight games.

Bohmbach has four goals over his last three games.

Trenton is 0-7 when the opposition scores first, and have never led in any of those games.

    The first line in this article…..”The Trenton Titans, proud ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers” ….WHAT??????…….now let me try and decipher this…they play Elmira, Andrew Rowe FLYERS property, scores two goals against the Titans, Maxime Clermont DEVILS property, makes 26 of 27 saves for the win….meanwhile the Titans roster is loaded with DEVILS contracted players, even though Trenton is the “PROUD AFFILIATE of the FLYERS”….Luke Pither FLYERS property is now a WHEELING NAILER, a division opponent….Harry Young a DEVILS contracted player is now with KALAMAZOO…..
    Think I’ve figured it out, flat broke, vagabond DEVILS spreading out their players on everyone elses dime turns ECHL into basically a pick-up league…..
    And the Devils, Coyotes, Predators,Panthers of the hockey world are the reason if you love hockey, the NHL, that we’re all going through another lockout, because the rest of the league has to prop up these brokesters….

    Bob you make my head hurt. 1. Rowe im pretty sure wasnt re-signed by the flyers 2. We didnt want Pither 3. Devils want young to play wing, we dont have room 4. Hovinen + Wedgewood > Clermont. Hes gotta play SOMEWHERE. Im not even gonna touch your asinine lockout talk.

    Andrew Rowe is still under contract to the Flyers? I believe that’s not true.

    Pither wasn’t any good and was not wanted here and the Flyers said they were more than fine with that. Is anybody here not looking through the O+B goggles worried for one second about playing against Luke Pither?

    Thankfully the Devils sent us thier best goalie prospect otherwise we would be screwed again this year in net

    Pick up league? Remind us again on what the Flyers prospects have done for this team this year?
