Is Matteucci out because of a suspension?

4min rats PP coming up.

Our PP has been fairly weak so far, with all this talent you would think it would do better. A playmaking center is needed IMO.....cough Foster cough

btw, a sad statistic: rats have more SHG than PPG.

argh, pihlman takes a stupid penalty and the admirals score on the pp.
less than 10 mins left.

and we're going to OT again.

edit--the play-by-play guys were just commenting on how anonymous suglobov has been. (a lot of praise for bicek in both games)

2-2 after regulation.

ugh...didn't take long for the admirals to score in OT. rats lose 3-2, but get a point.

the next game is friday in providence against the b-bruins.
