Teddy Chaos

Last night was the Blades annual teddy bear toss, and it didn't quite go as planned. The Checkers managed to score twice in the first period, and once in the second. The problem is the Blades didn't manage to score at all. With about 1:45 left in the second a close call led to some people throwing bears early, which led to other people throwing just because, eventually the announcer told everyone to go ahead and toss their bears. It was the largest crowd so far this season and there was a ton of  bearsand other stuffed animals on the ice, and they didn't stop for quite a bit. A video Woody from the Blades blog took (mine won't be up for a while).

They ended up playing the last 1:45 at the beginning of the third, and then switching sides and playing the third. In the end the Blades were unable to score and the Blades ended up losing 3-0. Some of the awesome pictures I was able to take from the great seats I got for that game... 

The next series will be against the Wheeling Nailers, one of the worst teams in the ECHL right now, and maybe the Blades can get something out of that series. The first game of the series will be next Wednesday, and hopefully the Blades wake up by then.
