It’s honestly so great that all seven goals involved players who had been a part of the other team the previous year. It’s just a shame Bill Peters couldn’t somehow find a way to score, too.
Feel of the game
The Hurricanes definitely had the better first period, and not just because they were able to capitalize off of a brutal TJ Brodie giveaway. The Flames just had no answer for them to start, David Rittich was their only real line of defence – at least until the Flames were able to get on the board, and then things calmed down a bit for them.
