17 shots for the Beaver ... 16 shot for the Seawolves. Gametime .. 2 hours and 3 minutes. Where have I seen numbers like that before? Dean Talafous coached Boremidji tonight? No doubt the Beaver dictated the pace of tonights game. After the Seawolves stupidly gave up another brutally early goal just 17 seconds in the rest of the game was a complete snooze-fest.
The Seawolves never found a way to open up the game and to be honest ... for the biggest majority of the game they were just as happy to sit back in a defensive shell as the Talafous led Beaver were. There was a brief stint in the 3rd when the Seawolves managed to open up the game and there was actually some end to end play.
But that ended when somedumbref called a ridiculous 5 minute major on Mickey Spencer. The Seawolves killed that nicely and managed to even generate some pressure short handed. But no sustainable momentum followed. Not committing any penalties in the first two periods cost the Seawolves though as the all-important "even it up" rule came into play in the third and somedumbref recognized that it was time to stack penalties on the Seawolves and give Boremidji at 5-3 chance. A goal during that put an end to any idea of coming back for the Seawolves. There isn't much else to analyze from this zzZZzzzZzZzZZZzzzzzZzzzz ... oops sorry; fell asleep there for a second.
Where was I? Oh yeah ... it was a borefest in Paul Bunyanland. Seriously though, did the Seawolves scare Tom Serratore that much? I guess he recognized that Friday night's score would have been 5-2 without flukes and Anderson looking at replays?
Mad phat props to Talafous though as who can fault him when it ended up with a W for them?
So. What's up with all the early goals? This shit isn't new. It happened last year. It's happening this year. What has to change to change that? Because that shit needs to change. The fucking game winning goal tonight was scored 17 seconds into the game. 18 seconds in and the game is over?
It.Is.Unacceptable. Quit.Letting.That.Happen. Doesn't.Matter.Who.Is.To.Blame. ... Just cut it out!
That is all I've got to say.
