It was cleaning time at the Sully as the Seawolves break out the brooms after a 2-1 victory over Colorado College. Craig Parkinson and Alex Gellert scoring the goals(on an assists from Tommy Grant, his fifth point of the weekend) behind the strength of another strong performance by goalie Rob Gunderson.
The Seawolves got another goal on the power play tonight, their 4th of the weekend, before, after 5 periods, the Seawolves scored 5 on 5 for the only time. It speaks a lot about the improvement and importance of special teams with only one 5 on 5 goal scored. CC's vaunted power play was frustrated all weekend, UAA kept them to the perimeter for the most and kept most shots from getting through. The UAA power play was able to work by exposing and drawing the defense to one side of the ice leaving it open for a backdoor pass for a goal. Most importantly UAA outworked CC all weekend, CC fans will not be happy with what looked like a lackadaisical effort against two fine games for UAA.
Interviews tonight from Coach Shyiak, Rob Gunderson (the story is that last night, after interviewing him, he was heading back to the locker room and said "see ya tomorrow!" thus the comment from me), and Craig Parkinson.
