I went to the game last night and he and Legault were by far the most engaged and physical Amerks. The guy has a non-stop motor, which is in contrast to another rookie, Kevin Sundher, he seemed to float way too much. Despite lack of results, Luke Adam played a good game last night as well.
Gudas takes a run at Luke Adam and Finley takes to letting him know that he shouldn't do that. Finley beat an unwilling combatant in Gudas. I'm not shocked something happened, since Gudas took out Tropp last time these two teams played.
Edit: Finley gets an extra 2 for roughing (basically instigating).
End of the 1st - scoreless period. Action was pretty limited and play was even. If nothing else, between the last 2 games, the Amerks have looked excellent when it comes to fighting. Foligno destroyed Bourdon yesterday, Finley took down Gudas, and Tarnasky handled himself in both his fights.
