Ginand Hat Trick Sparks 4-2 Devils Win in Elmira

#16 Ryan Ginand had four points vs. Elmira Friday.

Elmira, NY – After tying the game 1-1 with 2:33 remaining in the second period, the Devils took control Friday night by scoring three goals in the opening 7:49 of the third period en route to a 4-2 win over the Elmira Jackals at First Arena. The offensive blitz, which rendered the struggling Jackals’ defense helpless, was started by Ryan Hayes’ eighth goal of the season 20 seconds into the third period. The rookie’s power-play goal, assisted by Ryan Ginand and J.S. Berube, extended the Syracuse, NY native’s pointscoring streak to six straight games. Having already notched Trenton’s first tally of the evening, Ryan Ginand added the insurance, scoring at 5:11 and 7:49 to complete his secondcareer hat trick and spring the Devils to a 4-1 lead. Ginand’s first score of the third period was set up by a strong forecheck and centering pass from Mike Potacco. The Kinnelon, NJ made the pass out of right wing corner for the assist, registering his first professional point in his sixth career game. Ginand’s hat-trick goal, set up by Justin Pender and Brad Miller, was Trenton’s second power-play score of the game, and followed a two-power-play goal performance by Jeff Prough at First Arena in Trenton’s most recent visit to Elmira last Saturday night. Eric Lampe beat Dave Caruso with his seventh goal of the season with 10:09 remaining to make the score 4-2 Trenton, but Elmira never got any closer as the Devils won, 4-2, by defeating the

Kucharski Q&A

A FISH STORY

Kyle Kucharski was signed by the Devils December 4 after the 23-year-old forward played 49 games for Trenton last season. The 6’3, 200lb. forward accumulated 8 goals and 13 assists for 21 points and 36 penalty minutes as a rookie with the T-Devils after the Saugus, MA native played four seasons at Boston College (Hockey East). At Boston College, Kucharski was part of the Eagles 2007-08 NCAA Championship team. Q: What was your favorite team growing up? Who was your favorite player? A: In hockey, I always rooted for Peter Forsberg and the Colorado Avalanche. Non hockey wise, being from the Boston-area, the Red Sox were also a huge part of my life, too. Q: In light of the Holiday Season, what was the best present you ever got? The worst? What are you hoping to get this year? A: Well the worst was this gray zip-up sweatshirt that I got every year. I mean every year, I got the same exact oversized gray zip-up jacket. I’d get the same thing every year but I definitely never wore it. One year I got one of those Power Wheels cars, so that had to be the best. And for this year, not as much of an actual present, but what I’m looking forward to the most is getting a few days to go up to Massachusetts to visit my family. It’ll be a good break from hockey to be able to see everybody. Q: Is there a website that you visit everyday? If so, what is it? A: I don’t know if I go on “every” day, but I try to go on CNN and the Boston Globe as much as I can.

Jackals for the second time in the last three meetings. Although the Devils’ victory was paced by Ginand’s offensive heroics in the third period, the win wouldn’t have been possible without the stingy play on the penalty kill by Trenton in the first period. In the opening 10:40, the Devils took four minor penalties and were at one point down by two men for 44 seconds. Trenton surrendered zero goals-against in that span, which saw Elmira outshoot the Devils 13-2. Yannick Tifu scored a shorthanded goal in the first period to stake the Jackals to a 1-0 lead, but Ryan Ginand’s first goal of the night at 17:27 of the middle stanza, assisted by Andy Thomas and Justin Coutu, erased that advantage to open the door for the Devils’ game-deciding third period barrage on Daren Machesney. Dave Caruso stopped 35 of 37 shots to earn his first Trenton victory since October 28 as the Devils improve to 10-12-0-2. Daren Machesney stopped 38 of 42 shots as the Jackals are now winless in two straight games, dropping to 13-8-5-0. After four meetings in the last nine nights, the Devils and Jackals will next oppose each other December 29 at Sun National Bank Center. Trenton’s next game is Sunday against the Toledo Walleye at 4:00 p.m. at Sun National Bank Center.

Q: What is your favorite hockey movie? Your favorite non-hockey movie? A: As a hockey movie, I like Miracle. And for nonhockey, Good Will Hunting. I think my answers are starting to show the Boston in me. Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: Aruba. Q: If you had to make your own dinner, what would you cook for yourself? A: Some chicken, sweet potatoes, cheesy rice and broccoli. I think those are the only things I know how to could anyway. Q: If you could meet three people, alive or dead, who would they be? A: John F. Kennedy and Thomas Jefferson definitely. Those two cover the political side, so let me change it up and go with Cindy Crawford as my third one.

The Toledo Walleye are the ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings, and the AHL’s Rockford Ice Hogs (Chicago) and Grand Rapids Griffins (Detroit). The Walleye began play in the ECHL during the 2009-10 season, with the team previously being called the Toledo Storm, playing in the ECHL from 1991-2007. The Storm was renamed the Walleye when the Toledo hockey club was sold to Toledo Arena Sports, the same company which owns the famed AAA baseball team, the Toledo Mud Hens. The Walleye play in downtown Toledo, Ohio at Huntington Center, an 8,000 seat multi-purpose arena that opened in the fall of 2009. A walleye is a freshwater perciform fish, indigenous to most of Canada and the northern United States. The fish draw the species name “walleye” from the fact that their eyes reflect light, similar to the eyes of cats. The average walleye fish is 31 inches long and weighs nearly 20 pounds, and they are known for their ability to live and swim in deep, rough and murky waters. Nick Vitucci is in his fifth season as head coach of the Toledo hockey club dating back to 200304. Before beginning his coaching career, Vitucci played 13 professional seasons for 15 different teams, including the New Jersey Rockin’ Rollers of the now defunct Roller Hockey International. Vitucci has a record five ECHL championships, with four coming as a player, and one coming as an assistant coach.
