A Statement Win!

12-18-14-1 - Copy 12-18-14-2 - Copy

[On Thursday night, our undefeated Cardinals (5-0-1) were hosting the undefeated Sartell Sabres (7-0) for initial control of the Central Lakes Conference.]

12-18-14-3 - Copy

[Ryan Marciniak (20), Zach Johnson (17), and Mack Strong (16) took to the ice first for the Cardinals . . .]

12-18-14-4 - Copy

[And we were off and flying . . . here with Eli Heckert (27) and Jack Steffl (2), and a far background player to be named later (gotta be Alex Wosopka (8)).]

12-18-14-5 - Copy

[Wosepka chases the puck at the door step.]

12-18-14-6 - Copy

[And now Alec is carrying it out of our zone.]

12-18-14-7 - Copy

[Flying by my luxury box seats . . . the guy has wheels!]

12-18-14-8 - Copy[Cammeran Brown (21) looking to be fed in front from . . . Alec?]

12-18-14-9 - Copy

[GOOOAAAALLLLL!  Cards are on the board early by Steffl.]

12-18-14-10 - Copy

[A “Strong” attack (OK, that was too easy).]

12-18-14-11 - Copy

[Parker Revering (3) on ‘D.’]

12-18-14-12 - Copy

[Strong again.]

12-18-14-13 - Copy 12-18-14-13-1 - Copy

[Marciniak forechecking.]

12-18-14-14 - Copy 12-18-14-15 - Copy

[Wosepka with his signature move – just blazing down the right side boards.]

12-18-14-16 - Copy

12-18-14-17 - Copy 12-18-14-18 - Copy

[And then Ryan scores!  And somewhere in between I missed the goal by Alec?]

12-18-14-19 - Copy 12-18-14-20 - Copy

[Cards are in again with Brown on the doorstep.]

12-18-14-28 - Copy 12-18-14-21 - Copy 12-18-14-22 - Copy 12-18-14-23 - Copy

[After further flurries by the Cards, the period ended.  I would guess probably the Cards’ best period of the year.]

12-18-14-24 - Copy 12-18-14-25 - Copy

[But the Sabres were 7-0 for a reason.  In the 2nd period, they put the Cards back on our heels, and for the first half of the period the Cards could only clear the zone by icing.  The Sabres were aggressively forechecking and about halfway through closed the margin to 3 – 1.]

12-18-14-26 - Copy 12-18-14-27 - Copy

[The Cards started finding their legs again and Christian Canavati (11) delivers a slap shot.]

12-18-14-28 - Copy 12-18-14-29 - Copy 12-18-14-30 - Copy

[And since the puck appears to be in the net, has to be Mack Strong’s goal to up the lead to 4 – 1.]

12-18-14-31 - Copy 12-18-14-32 - Copy 12-18-14-33 - Copy

[The period ended 4 – 1, then the puck shoot, then . . .

12-18-14-34 - Copy 12-18-14-35 - Copy 12-18-14-36 - Copy

[The end of the game.  The Cards added two more goals in the 3rd, with Alec and Ryan each getting their 2nd goals of the game.  Well done, Cards!]

The Cards continued their undefeated season with a 3 – 2 win at nemesis St. Cloud Cathedral last night.  🙂
