Since it's an exhibition game I hope coach plays a different goalie in each period.

5-4 NU after two frames but still don't know why we don't give another goalie minutes.

5-5 early in 3rd as our PK has given up 2 of 3 Devo's PP's.

I’m sure the PP for the US team consists of highly skilled offensive players.

NU 6-5 W 5 remaining.
Two goals each by Pineo and Fifth Line.
With a name like the later were his parents encouraging right from birth to improve?

Pineo with a hat trick!

Still surprised another goalie didn't get some work this evening.
