UAA wins tonight, and this time is wasn't by one goal!, 4-1 behind 3 Power Play goals and a shorthanded goal. Two goals from Tommy Grant and one each from Craig Parkinson and Mitch Bruijsten all behind a First Star performance from goaltender Rob Gunderson (including a few saves that many wondering how they didn't go in).
The biggest key to tonights game was that the "rink rust" from not having a game in five weeks was at a minimum, it was there just barely noticeable. Passes weren't as crisp as they could've been but the team played well in front of Gundy blocking shots and preventing shots and cashing in on their opportunities. Tomorrow will be a good game with CC I think to come out very differently as I do UAA.
Interviews tonight from Coach Shyiak, Tommy Grant, and Rob Gunderson.
