TOLEDO, Ohio —
“We were focused and on an even keel, but I think that we have gotten off that,” Anzalone said. “We just need to refocus and do what we need to do. ... We didn’t play up to the level that we can play at (Saturday night). We didn’t do what we needed to do to be successful. We need to look at that during this week and make corrections for the next game.”
The Chiefs were forced to shuffle their lineup before Saturday’s game, accounting for the loss of forward J.B. Bittner and defenseman Jay Rosehill.
Bittner, a Pittsburgh native, was called up to AHL Portland, a team he went to training camp with before joining the Chiefs. Rosehill was recalled by AHL Springfield. The Falcons sent down defenseman Mike Egener.
But it was a short-lived debut for Egener, who suffered an injury during the second period and was unavailable to Johnstown for the rest of the game.
