The Seawolves tie Denver tonight 2-2 after a close, hard fought game. I thought the Seawolves had either had it in the OT or, at the very least, should've had a penalty shot to try to win it.
Rob Gunderson continued his strong play stopping 20 of 22 shots. The key to this was a better performance from the defense in front of him. Gundy wasn't called to make many spectacular saves as last night. To that end a strong start did wonders, leading to a Power Play goal (the second of the weekend). A turnover led to DU's first goal and DU added another after some strong play in the second. UAA seemed to take over in the third leading to the Game Tying Goal from Mitch Bruijsten after some nice passing from Craig Parkinson and a swift move from Mitch. Disappointing to not get the win but it is good to get a point and is something to build on for the next half.
Interviews tonight from Coach Shyiak (I stupidly cut off my recording as he was wishing Happy Holidays. Oops) and Craig Parkinson talking about his penalty killing early on in the game and the game tying goal.
A big Holiday break now with a month until the next game. I'm sure Donald and I will around posting during the Holiday break.
