I knew I couldn't go 3 and 0 in camp behind the bench. Time to get back to doing what I do best, flapping my gums in the broadcast booth, not the bench.
The "Black Beauties" struck first, but then had a mini melt down mid-period which saw Team White score 3 quick ones to go up 5-1 after 1. Team Black came out and played much better in the second, trimming the gap to 5-3, but Team White restored their lead to 6-3. Black got one back to trail 6-4, but they couldn't get that crucial next one to make it a one goal game before Team White got the dagger with three minutes to go to lead 7-4. One final push back by Team Black was stopped before an empty netter was added to seal the deal.
All in all, a good played game with some good talent on both sides.
