Albany Devils Split Final Two Games As The Season Comes To An End

It is a simple statement and I think a true statement. In the NBA and NHL if you don’t make the playoffs you had a disappointing season. You can carry that over to the AHL as well since 16 teams make the post season just like the other 2 leagues mentioned. if you believe that then there is no other way to assess the year for the Albany Devils then to say the season was a failure. You can make excuses, figure up reasons, but in the end the results are what they are. The season ended Sunday and the Devils are going home.

Albany split their final 2 games, winning Saturday at the Times Union center 2-0 over Norfolk. David Wohlberg snapped a scoreless ties with just 2:33 left making a winner of  goaltender Jeff Frazee. Frazee picked up his 8th win of the year, his 73rd with the franchise ( a franchise high) and his 1st since March 3rd. The Devils added an empty net goal with under a minute remaining to ice the contest.

On Sunday, looking to end the season on a feel good 3 game winning streak the Devils lost 4-2 to their main rival Adirondack 4-2. The loss put the Devils under 500 for the season at 31-32-1-12. Over 5,000 fans came to the TU Center to watch the season finale.

The highlight of the finale was Harri Pesonan’s 14th goal of the year. he ends the season on a 4 game goal scoring streak. Keith Kinkaid and Scott Wedgewood split goaltending duties in the finale.

Not a good season when your NHL team, the NJ Devils fail to make the post season and your top minor league team in the AHL also fails to make the playoffs.
