- First NHL point of his career for Zach Hamill, wearing #52. He assisted on Ryder's first goal of the game.
- Buncha players taking today off: Chara, Bergeron, Recchi, Sobotka
- Hunwick & Boychuk were tasked with Ovechkin duty, and didn't do too badly.
- Nice to see the team start the playoffs winning 3 straight. It was basically against teams who didn't care, but it allowed for extended, quality minutes from McQuaid & Bodnarchuk as they adjusted to the speed/skill of the NHL game.

Nice win today by the Providence B's over the Hershey Bears, who were playing with their parent team's #1 line of Backstrom, Ovechkin, and Semin. Thomas let in a softie at first, but was pretty solid throughout, including 3 nice saves on Ovechkin. Goals by, ah....Ryder who picked a corner on a nice shot for a power play goal, and also scored another close-in, Sturm (a BOMB one-timer on a feed from Krejci) and in the shootout, Krejci got the first one and Satan undressed Varlamov for the 2nd one.
