Sommer mixed the lines as the game went on, but those were the ones we saw the most.

Shootout:
P: Parenteau; shoot high glove GOAL
S: Stafford; shoot low stick WIDE
P: Skinner; deke 5-hole SAVE
S: Iggulden; deke 5-hole SAVE

Fight:
Trevor Gillies (6'3", 235#) vs Glenn Olson (6'4" 220#)
The less said, the better. Olson did get in a shot or two but the fight was all Gillies, who at the end of the fight dumped Olson face first to the ice.

Game notes:
Murray, Plihal, and Biron all blocked passes that would have resulted in 2v1s
Stafford, Cavanagh, Iggulden, and Macho all had blocked shots.
Armstrong, Olson, Plihal, Pavelski, and Spang all had hits. Ferguson, Valette, Biron, and Staubitz each had two. Iggulden had 3, Murray had 5.

Patzoid made 4 high-quality saves.

Conrad Haché was the ref and called a very good game. Mark Messier and Bob Paquette, two of the AHL better linesmen, had terrible nights. They missed 5 obvious too many men penalties (2 on Portland, 3 on Worcester), and both had a few bad calls on the blue lines.

Speaking of "too many men", the WSharks line changes are terrible. They are slow and occasionally ill-timed.

Pavelski interference penalty wins the "what the heck were you thinking?" award as he did it after the WSharks iced the puck.

Murray's game tying goal went about 3 inches over the goal line.

So what did everyone think? The building, the curtain, the atmosphere, the game? How about it.

A picture of the opening face off should be in the fan photos soon. I'll enjoy that one for a long time.
