Went to the game. Copps was half full. It was a good game but the second was pretty slow and the Dogs had almost no offense. Mayer looked shaky on a lot of the shots, he really needs to calm it down and especially needs to work on rebound control. The second goal he didn't have his stick down and the first goal wasn't the greatest rebound control but the defender should have been there to be fair.
Also, Stortini is definitely a fan favourite. Extremely slow but he actually created a few scoring chances, created havoc and made some big hits. Almost got the winner late in the 3rd too. Beaulieu looked decent but made some dumb mistakes. One of the funnier-but-could-have-been-scary moments happened when #58 on the Dogs tried to hop the bench early in the game to get onto the ice but his right leg didn't come fully over so he almost pulled a hamstring or something. He looked pretty embarrassed which was funny. Also, late in the 2nd or 3rd (forget which), one of the Hershey players knocked off the Bulldogs net (It was completely off and was obvious). Mayer realized this and started yelling at the ref and proceeded to lounge. About 20 seconds later, the ref finally realized and blew the play dead. Kinda sad it took that long to notice especially since the play was in the Bulldogs end.
One final note: The Bulldogs don't like forechecking. Almost always they would back up and when Hershey bobbled the puck (Which happened a few times), they only had one player to pressure it as everyone else was at the red line or their own blue line.
