Springfield Falcons Start Season With Five Straight Wins


The Springfield Falcons, the AHL affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets, began their season on October 5th, and have played eight games since opening their season. The Falcons started on a strong note and won their first five games, consisting of two wins at home, and three wins on the road.

Since their 5-0 start though, they have a shootout loss, and two losses in regulation – one of which came last night against the Adirondack Phantoms. That leaves the Falcons with a record of 5-2-0-1, and with three straight losses. They currently rank 2nd in the Northeast division, trailing the Hartford Wolfpack by 4 points in the standings, and sit 6th overall in the Eastern conference.
