Now THAT'S Entertainment!

Post by insagt1 » Fri Oct 10, 2014 10:04 pm

Last year we endured the worst shellacking in team history on opening night. On this night we saw a hockey game, the likes I know I haven't seen here in years.
An entertaining, fun filled romp that had just about everything. Wow.

After a pretty tentative scoreless 1st period, who could have guessed what was to follow. We saw goals....pretty exciting goals...a great opener by Schaller; a laser from Grigorenko; an amazing penalty shot where Armia faked the goalie right out of his pads; and great shots by Ruhedel, Ellis and Varone. We saw real live penalty killing, something we rarely saw last year. The PK units were awesome good. We saw a 'goalie diving' penalty (huh?) We saw excellent goaltending from Lieuwen, who only let one get by him.
And we saw a brawl! Bring back the 70's and 80's. All 5 skaters squared off near the end of the game and battled away...sticks, gloves, jerseys were everywhere. Old time hockey. The boys were really in it.

And so were the fans. A pretty decent and enthusiastic crowd of just under 6,800 were on hand and we had to be liking what we saw tonite.
Finally--some entertainment on ice!

A very nice win. A great night at the hockey barn. Looking forward to more.
