Then the scrappy stuff commenced. After some preliminary slashing, Cameron and **** had a wrestling match and Cameron threw **** to the ice. There was no penalty.
Then ***** slammed Foyston, and a moment later ****** got Cameron in close range and “whanged” him one with the hickory, and was boosted out of the fray.
Cameron’s grand rush wound up fruitless when, after evading everybody, **** cut his stick in two just as he was about to shoot.
[Lester] Patrick’s wrist was damaged with a slash, and when Cameron dropped ***** cold with a cross-check the Vics were without a defense.
After seven minutes give-and-take, Cameron checked a Patrick rush, and gave Marshall the puck. Marshall made a rush, with Cameron trailing, passed it over to Cameron when he reached the defense, and Cameron laced it home, waist high. He made it 2-0. Then ****** and Cameron hooked, and Cameron was fenced for slamming ****** over the head with his stick.
So, he threw a fierce bodycheck, participated in some strong offensive pressure, got in a wrestling match, got gooned by the opposition, rushed through the whole team only to be thwarted at the last second, Crosschecked a player out of the game, scored what turned out to be the cup winner on a play that he started by breaking up a rush, and then gooned the opposition back for good measure... same player, too.
Sounds like a game for the ages.
I should mention that at first glance, at least one teammate and one opponent were both mentioned significantly more often than him. Yes, the account is that detailed.
Thanks bud. I truly appreciate it, considering you're a division rival and it'd be too easy to ignore some pretty positive accounts of Cameron's all-around play. Learning more about the game is what it's all about.
