4/9 Bugs vs Wichita

The only thing left for Wichita...
Time: 8:05 P.M.

...is a long bus ride home!! The Bugs win the game 7-4. It was a good game. The last song played tonight was a great song for the moment... U2's "Beautiful Day". I guess the guy running the music really does know what he's doing, eh Flamer? ;)

The attendance could have been better... it was only 4,045 - 40 less than Thursday's attendance of 4,085. Where is everyone at? I figured we'd have a large crowd tonight considering what was on the line tonight.

The boys played hard tonight. Let's hope they continue to play this hard in the next series.



Open Net!
Time: 7:44 P.M.

Wichita should have just left the net open all night. Maybe with a 6th person on the ice they would have done better than they did. But, since they left their net unattended, Manning made a beautiful open-net goal with only 8.42 seconds left in the game. Manning rocks.

Another Goal
Time: 7:30 P.M.

Wichita scored again. Ken Wiebe gets the credit for it and Scott Rozendal gets the assist. Let's hope the Bugs step up and keep the Thunder from catching up.

Thunder Goal
Time: 7:24 P.M.

Lizotte, with some help from Duda and Clayton, just brought their score to 3. The score now stands 5-3 in favor of the Bugs.

Tyler Liebel of the Thunder is injured. He is in a ball on the ice. He was helped off the ice and looks to be okay.

Someone has an attitude problem...
Time: 7:22 P.M.

Ryan McLean just got a penalty for slashing. The linesman escorting him into the box had to push him into the penalty box. McLean chirped at the Ref, getting himself a misconduct penalty. It wasn't a game misconduct, but there is only 9:57 left in the period so he's out the rest of the game. Before he left the box to head to the locker room, the video of him on the screen showed him with Mickey Mouse ears. Too funny!!

Goooooooooal!!
Time: 7:21 P.M.

Wooooo-hoooo! The Bugs score their 6th goal of the night! Scott Sheppard scored with an assist from Chris Shaw! Good goal, good goal.

You know, until close to the end of the regular season, many people didn't believe that Shaw would score a point. I knew he couldand that he would all along! I'm glad he's getting into a groove and getting more game time. I look to see great things from him in the games to come. Congrats Shaw! Keep up the good work & continue beating the snot out of people! A game just isn't a game unless you kick someone's booty.

Wichita is switching goalies. Like that's really going to help. The Bugs are on fire tonight. Nothing can stop them now.

FIIIIGHT!!
Time: 7:09 P.M.

Wildfong just beat the crud out of Wichita's David Tetrault! Likely one of the best fights in this series. Wildfong had Tetrault on the ground in no time. Tetrault slapped the glass in the box. Someone needs an attitude adjustment!

The video guys just played the clip from The Waterboy about the can of whoop you-know-what. They couldn't have picked a better time for that clip!

Gooooooal!
Time: 7:04 P.M.

Woo hooo! Beautiful power-play goal from Spurr 1:22 into the 3rd! Assists from Brassard and Basile.

The bell has rung again...
Time: 6:41 P.M

I've got to hand it to them, Wichita will stop at nothing to win tonight. Immediately after the buzzer to end the 2nd went off, the Thunder and the Bugs went at it. Nearly all 8 players on the ice went at it. Lightbody jumped from the bench to get in it, resulting in a game misconduct for leaving the bench during an altercation. Wichita's Matt Coughlin did the same, and he was ejected also. There were some other minor penalties, but those were the two best.

Recap of the 2nd...
Time: 6:35 P.M.

I'm kinda behind tonight aren't I?

About 6 minutes after the Thunder scored, Brett Smith scored with some assistance from Sheppard and Manning. 5 minutes later the Bugs gained another goal from Sheppard with assists from Manning and Lupul.

I promise this blog WILL get better... I hope.

Uh Oh...

Wichita goal from Joe Blaznek at 3:41 into the second to tie it up. Assists from Tetrault and Liebal. Starting to get kinda antzy...


A Very Eventful First...
Time: 6:05 P.M

2 goals for the Bugs, 1 for Wichita, and a whole lot of penalties. First goal for the Bugs scored by Brett Smith on a 2 man advantage power play with assists from Scott Sheppard and Craig Minard at 7:25 into it. Wichita's Kris Wiebe tied it up roughly 2 minutes later with assists from Jason Duda and Daniel Tetrault. Then the Bugs got one ahead with a goal from Chad Spurr. Chris Brassard and Dale Lupul assisted.

The first also brought a few penalties for Wichita... Here's one of the worst: While already one man down, Joe Blaznek slashes Sheppard right across the back. It was a nasty shot... Shep fell to his knees but got right back up. It takes a lot to keep that guy down.

Fight at the end... The buzzer sounding the end of the period was apparently like a bell in boxing match for both teams... the players on the ice started to have at it over by the Thunder's bench. It didnt go very far, but it made it obvious to everyone around that both teams are in it all the way tonight.
