B's win

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.
  • 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.


  1. Loved seeing Thomas fight... Kind of ;)

  2. I think TT was pissed at letting in the soft goal a few minutes previous. Chimera crashing the net at high speed just gave him the opportunity to rage.

  3. Love the Bergie !!!
