The night sky somewhere over Meyerland Plaza was filled with bursting multicolored sparks.
A fitting end to a smashing (and I mean this literally) game.
It's been quite a while since the glass reverberated like shots!
Bodies slammed into boards so frequently -THUMP, THUMP, THUMP.
And the raucous fans went wild.. "hit'em, get'em"..
and so on right at my right ear. It still feels numb!
Leaving the numbers game to the experts,
here is my take on this afternoon game.
Apparently the talking to the guys by the coaches about
'the best defense is offense',
'don't let the others have any 'space', etc.
|Ortmeyer and McLean (chivalry is not dead yet-Mc Lean lent a helping hand up to fiormer mate)|
with heavy work for Hackett and Montoya .
Montoya, stunned, on knees after that Daoust, Rau Earl goal!
|No, I DON'T wanna look at that dratted Nr. 62!|
|Patting the Winner|
And after that it's back to
Rampage pounding Hackett - he saves.
Aeros pounding Montoya - he saves.
A stranger interlude: did the net break, did the puck break it?
I was so intensely watching referees and others seemingly reweaving the net..
I caught only the tail end.
Gillies with Ortmeyer (he's again much in evidence-good move to sign him) makes it 3-1 with an empty netter on a PP, yet!
|Fans ecstatic, as are the Gillies huggers!|
|Hackett at work|
|A dropped stick, yet a save!|
|Brandon Buck "I'm just protecting Matt, Sir"!|
|Intermission Entertainment of the cuter kind|
|Hackett in full form!|
|Oh, just look at that little puck!|
|Number 1 Star of the Game with big grin!|
|Aeros ready to play!|
