But as my back started to act up (again) I left in the 2. intermission and ...
per TN, missed a whole lot of excitement - if you can call a seemingly bad injury to the scorer of 3 goals and being carried out on backboard, followed by a fight, and a Dallas player being thrown out of game! Tja....I blame it all on the pesky PIB!
On the way home major traffic jam on 59! Should have stayed, lol!
Apologize for the cloudy look of photos-those glass sections are rather banged up!
After the second period Imperials led by 1 (4-3). And managed to catch up in the Third to end 5-3. Sort of an evening after having lost to Dallas Jr. Stars the evening before.
Crowd favorite SUPERMAN dropped the puck clothed in a brand new signed Imperials away jersey! Imperials Head Coach Jarod Palmer (ex Aeros) - we are reminded of the Aeros by the banners on the wall :-)!
Here he waits for the face off - ready to catch what may be coming at him!
The game was a bit hard to follow.
No program, and the opposing team only sported Numbers no names on their jerseys..
However, with a bit of research I am able to report:
Imperials scorers: E. Bordak 3 (apparently out with injury-unknown how bad), Vladykosvoskiy and Spooner each 1 goal, Vladykosvoskiy also 1 assist, the other assists went to Simon and Bordak A - 2 each.
I guess a goal is a a goal, in English or Russian LoL!
On the side of the, IMO, faster skating Dallas Jr. Stars the scoring players are: Ledyanshin (?), Huspen and Burns - each got one.
The Goalie (from Ravensbruck, Germany) Steffan Muller had 29 saves of 34 SOGs.
His mask proudly sports the German Red Gold Black flag if you look closely-in the lower part.
If one expected a fast and furious play... sorry, not quite.
But the somewhat sparse crowd roared its approval when Anderson made another good save!
What struck me:
the players, as well as referee Larson were about the same age (methinks-give or take a year or two).
Anyway, the Imperials acquitted themselves well this afternoon.
I leave you with this image:
Enemies looking deeply into each others eyes :-)!
