1W, no. 5; newsletter by h.s.)
For two periods we played the blackhawks so tenaciously it was like Game 7 of the Stanley Cup ... then came a 5:00 minute stretch in the 3rd when things seem to fall apart.
Here's the recap: The Blackhawks scored first, but we rallied right back after wildman rushed the net on a Glenn Farkas rebound. The 1st period ended in a 1-1 tie.
In the 2nd, the only score came after a sequence of passes from side-to-side in front of our goal line ending in a slam dunk by one of the Blackhawks' forwards.
Trailing by one goal at the start of the 3rd, things took a turn for the worse as the 'Hawks capitalized on every opportunity and added 4 more scores. Except for that lapse, it was a strong game for us especially against such a powerhouse team.
1) JOHN CASSENS
For tying the game in the first and claiming sole possession of the No. 3 spot of our scoring leaders.
2) GLENN FARKAS
For assisting on the first goal and for his point-blank slapshot that rocketed past their goalie late in the 3rd.
3) ROB ARMSWOOD
For making a rare Wednesday night appearance and keeping the Blackhawks offensive guys in check for 45:00 minutes.
