Ryan Carpenter is hoping his days of being a spectator are almost over.
“I’ve had a renewed hunger and focus from sitting out, and it makes you appreciate it a whole lot more,” Carpenter said. “Watching the games is hard. When we’re winning, it’s a lot easier being in the stands. If we’re losing close games, that’s when you get more anxious to play. You want to be out there helping the team, but I can only control what I can control. I’m just trying to get healthy and encourage the guys on the team, and build them up.”
REST: The Falcons are enjoying their first break since the season started. BG has been off since the Tech series.
“I want us to have some time to rest mentally and physically,” Bergeron said. “They need time to rest. They need time to relax and spend time with their families.”
BG also has a weekend off in January and February.
PP/PK: Although the Falcons still are seeking consistency and improvement from the special teams, their power-play and penalty-killing units are much improved over last season.
The Falcon power play are at 18.6 percent on the power, play this season, compared to 13.7 percent last season.
The BG penalty-killing is at 83 percent this season, compared to 76.4 percent last season.
