Spits Come Up Big

Great game to watch if you're a Spit fan. Pavelka played very well in the 1st period as the Spits were badly outplayed and out shot. The lone goal scored against him was on the 3rd shot in a scramble. In the 2nd the Spits came on and outplayed the Spirit the rest of the way.

First look at the Spirit for me this year. They have an impressive PP, work the puck around well.

Granted the Spirit played last night and grew sluggish as the game progressed but the Spitfires deserve full marks for their effort tonight.

The hit by Sieloff late in the second drew another round of big gasps from the crowd.

It was a clean open ice hit that didn't draw a penalty call but did cause a Spirit player to instigate a fight with Sieloff, something that frequently happens after one of his big hits.

Attendance for the game was announced as 5,200 but a number of those were disguised as empty seats.

If we can get a split on the weekend the team may have turned the corner. One can only hope....
