- Powerplay conversions.
- Making Hartnell pay whenever he was in the box.
- Some solid hits
- Otter getting on the board on a beauty feed from Poms.
- In what I've seen, liked the Regehr-Myers pair (haven't watched all of the second period yet... I reserve the right to change my mind. ).
- CoHo hustling and being rewarded with a goal.
- VanMassivehoser breaking things Buffalo's way with that late whistle.
- Stafford dropping the mitts. Yes please. Bigger is fine, getting everyone into the mindset that they're not a team to **** with is best.

The Bad -

- Missing much of the second while my son's team was getting curb-stomped by two different select travel squads. Whoever thinks that's good for some house league players ought to be punted in the potatoes.
- Didn't think the first Flyers goal should've been waived off. It was really weak.

The Ugly -

- Did I mention watching 8 and 9 year old selects pound on a house league team twice? When it's 20-2 total for a two-game set and the goal on the team that got lit up is the best player on the ice....
That is because it was originally supposed to be a select tournament. They just didn't get enough teams and put house teams in at every level.
