It did turn into a nasty game, and I'm sure the guys are glad it's over. There was a bit of a brawl toward the end of the 3rd which resulted in roughing minors and misconducts to everyone on the ice. Hopefully the oack will get something going Sunday agains the Lock Monsters.
The Pack are on a road trip (6th of 7 straight) and haven't played well on the road all season, so I wouldn't worry too much. Also sounded as if they had a rookie ref who might not have had full control of the game.
I listened to the game until the 3rd period. At that point it became impossible to listen to. What is it with the AHL? They feel they have to go out and goon up ever frigging game. And it's always the same guys.
Also, Lampman left the game early and Weller and macIntyre spent so much time in the box that the Pack was playing mostly 4 defensemen all night.
Actually MacIntyre was playing forward...they shifted him to defense after Lampman left and Weller was serving his time in the box. They had Lampman, Pock, Nycholat, Taylor, Weller, Macmillan on defense to start the game.
