If Raffi wasn't bigger and stronger than everyone he played in the ahl playoffs he would have been wearing his arse for a hat. He never went along the boards without smacking someone upside the head.
Yup, it looked like it was just one of those nights. On the bright side, they just got a wakeup call and it never cost them two points.
