Not sure which Rivermen you've been watching but the ones in Peoria are bad, nearly all of them. That includes CBT.

In a division where all 8 teams are playing over .500 hockey the Rivermen have now managed to claw their way up into the 4th spot with 43 points and a .597pct. That would be only 2 points away from the 3rd spot.

Not too bad. Seems they have made a bit of a comeback.

Things are improving.


It was Peoria's third straight victory and raised its all-time record against the former Omaha franchise to 21-3-3. The surging Rivermen earned points for the 17th time in 21 games, moving to within two of third-place San Antonio in the AHL's West Division.

The Rivermen won their fifth straight tonite in a shootout. Six straight wins on the road.

They are good. I stand corrected.

Woywitka gets the OT goal and the Rivs escape Rochester with a 4-3 win. big stretch this month. Good to see they are winning again for sure.

Just an FYI.... The Blues had a major call up tonight against Nucks. Equipment Manager Joel Farnsworth is seeing his first NHL action while filling in for personal matters. Way to Go!!! Joel....

By the numbers...

It was the third game in three nights for the Rivermen

The Rivermen won their seventh straight road game, longest road streak of the season in the AHL

It was Peoria’s season-high sixth straight victory overall

Marks the 20th time in the last 24 games the club has earned points

Hellstrom's been a healthy scratch the past 3 (I think...2 for sure) games. Not sure the reason. None is being giving over the Riv's broadcast.

I think a lot of it is growing pains and the adjustment to the speed. Along with culture schock I always notice that the Euro kids take a bit of time to adjust to the game and local surroundings. He has shown that he has potential. We should see. Our D unit is on a pretty good streak. He is the low man on the pole at this point. I don't know if he is able to go to Alaska or not. But that would only scare him back home IMO.

Hellstrom scratched again tonight vs Hamilton.
What would the chances be of seeing him brought back as a forward?

Can we change the title back to Bad. We were right all along. Winning one game in February and stinking up most of March places them solidly in the bad category.

Last night was just sad to listen to...that's for sure.

Kariya, Trudel, DuPont....all with ZERO SOGs in the first 50 minutes of the game.
Wagner hurt in the 3rd again (shot off foot)
Polak sounded like he played for crap.
Bishop out.

Stick a fork in 'em....they're done.
