That Girgensons hit was scary. Slip and I were at the game and we both thought he looked catatonic, with his head and one skate up off the ice, not moving at all. From our angle, it looked like the way he got hit bounced him off a hard edge of the boards, where the have the door to the locker room. The fact that he got off the ice more or less under his own power was a huge relief.

Rochester was incredibly deflated for a good 6 or so minutes of game time afterward, then started picking up the pace again. Up until his injury, I thought Girg was the best skater on the ice. Very quick, good hands, and bumping a bit.

A few observations:

~ Lots of fights, but basically no bodychecks from Amerks.
~ Game could have been 7-0. The goal against was basically Finley being in terrible defensive position, and they bounced shots off the Crunch bar twice.
~ On a related note, Helenius played a helluva game. He made several outstanding saves, and could not be faulted on several of the goals against. One goal, in particular, it was almost as if the Crunch had no players on the ice other than him.
~ Adam took a terrible tripping penalty, but otherwise had a pretty decent game. He had the puck on a 2-on-1 break late in the game, but an excellent defensive play by the Crunch blueline prevented the pass. Adam was still able to drag the puck around him and get a decent shot on goal.
~ The Syracuse Ice Girls probably have to have notes from their parents to be out late. Holy Middle School Gymnastics Team, Batman.
