Rocket down 1-0 to Marlies after 2 periods.  Looks like they really miss 2/3rds of their top line.  Only Poehling from that line left. Plus, they are outshooting the Marlies 38-20!

Well it doesn’t look like Poehling is playing tonight either. He’s not in the lineup! Injured?

Laval clinches the division title in an overtime loss. With their most dominant showing of the year the Rocket clinched the division crown, even with a loss in extra time, 4-3. With seven games left in the season, the Laval Rocket were in a spot to do something that a Montreal Canadiens AHL affiliate hadn’t done in a long time: clinch a division title. All they needed was a single point against the Toronto Marlies, but they still had quite the challenge on their hands. They were without Alex Belzile and Cayden Primeau (recalled to the NHL), Joseph Blandisi, Michael Pezzetta, and Joel Teasdäle (season-ending injuries), and Ryan Poehling and Cale Fleury (day to day).

I thought Poehling got returned to Laval from taxi squad on Sunday. Perhaps back up to taxi squad on an emergency recall?

Must have been a last minute scratch, as he was expected to play.  Just noticed this after the fact. Ryan Poehling  (day to day).

Jean-François Houle is the new rocket's coach.

Not sure what his creds are like (I know he was coaching in the ECHL)   I know that none of us should be judged for our father's actions but its a bit concerning that his dad was probably the worst GM in the history of the team... yikes.

 

I believe we actually drafted Houle in the early 90s if my memory is right?  But im pretty sure he never played for us.

Houle, 46, has spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach with the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors, the farm team of the Edmonton Oilers.

Jared Book (as always) had a great comment on EOTP today on those who are critical of the hiring:

"Anyone who complains about this is just looking for a reason to complain IMO.  He may end up being good, he may end up being bad, but he has a resume of someone who would normally get this chance and I doubt many people followed Bakersfield very closely." ~ Jared Book
