Cory Stanton was at the game and sent in these thoughts:

1st period:
Bourque and Allen playing physical
Mcilrath got beat ending up in penalty shot- save by Malcolm
Kristo skating well
Malcolm strong early
GOAL 9:27- Bourque from Nash and Syvret
Conor Allen takes cross checking penalty. Scrum ensues  Asham involved. No fight
Pack kills penalty no problem
Malcolm gives up sharp angle goal off Mcilrath skate
Lindberg invisible other than late shot
Bourque best player
Kristo is highly talented. Smooth skater. Shifty with great hands
Mcilrath struggled
Pack controlled most of the play
2nd Period:
Mcilrath still struggling
Lindberg lost his man and Got beat on 2nd goal. Mcilrath was slow to react also. Malcolm lets shot slip between 5-hole

Brendan Nash hooking
Short 2 man advantage.
Killed off

Mcilrath getting spun around like a top
Hrivik not getting much going
Poor overall by everyone. Ugly effort
Not a single sustained offensive zone shift

3rd period:
Stacer replaced Malcolm
Mcilrath 2 early shots
Johnson with huge hit
Klassen gets best and gives up penalty shot. 2nd of game! Malcolm makes save again!

GOAL Johnson from Hrivik and Syvret
Time runs out
4-3 loss
