I went to the Hounds/Spirit game...took some notes:

First Hounds goal
- scored on their 1st shot - wrist shot from slot with no pressure on shooter - Sproul on ice had no influence on goal

2nd Hounds goal - 4 on 4, Sproul froze Paterson with shot fake from right point then put a beauty cross zone pass for an easy tap in

3rd Hounds goal
- Sproul one-timed a cross ice pass from the point through Paterson's legs on the power play - 2nd goal of the evening Paterson probably should've stopped

Sproul was scored against defending a 2 on 1 - dove stick 1st to try to deflect hard shot from puck carrier who didn't pass, beat goalie top corner

Sproul was slapping his stick all game wanting the puck, skating it into the offensive zone, jumping into the rush every chance he got, shot a lot and they got through with respectable frequency, played sparingly in the 1st & 2nd, played a lot in the 3rd and overtime

His offense looked really good. His D was another story. Lost his man a few times, needs to be more punishing along the boards, outlet pass was a bit rusty at times.

Sproul was not very physical at all - Laid big hit on a guy coming in 1 on 1 on him but that was about it.

Little bit of pk and pp time for #55

Losing O.T goal was his fault, was soft on Spirit player coming into his zone, left Trafford alone going around the net. Didn't pick Trafford up when he came around the other side. Puck came to his man Trafford all alone and he potted the O.T. winner.

Paterson - 1st period- faced 11 shots - 2 were quality chances. A lot of shots from outside, good stop on a sure tap in 2 on 1, let in 2 goals

2nd - faced 12 shots - 1 quality chance against - stopped a 2 on 0
in close, no pass was made so he just played shooter
-beat clean by a slapshot from the point but hit off the base of the
3rd - 20 shots faced - saved a few point blank and subsequent rebound too

Very ordinary 1st 2 periods, played well in the third.

Frequently Put rebounds in dangerous places.
