43W, no. 6; newsletter by h.s.)
We had all the right ingredients for this game: The Marty-KennyG-Miller line was all present, and #67 was even able to sub and center our second line of Wildman and LeMatty. Rounding out our full 10-man crew were a formidable foursome on defense: Kevin, Joe Nigro, Eddie, and Dave. Maybe what was lacking was “Chef Russ” to add the “Bam!”
It started out close as the teams had a scoreless 8:00-minutes, then they scored. Then we answered back on the next shirt (Wildman from KennyG). Then they scored the first of two bizarre goals, followed by a nice goal.
Late in the final period Kevin did a coast-to-coast move to bring it within two again, but unfortunately we never answered back, even though we had a spirited last :90 seconds with the extra skater. We'll put this game in the “one that got away” file and hopefully we won't be following this recipe again.
