In the first time in a long time the Blades had a good game from the minute the game started until the end. They were able to dominate the Royals for most of the game. The goalies were the difference for both teams. Matt Dalton (and his posts) were able to keep the Royals in the game, he only allowed one goal in regulation. Barry Brust was able to blank the Royals until the final 1:15, when a crushing onslaught from the Royals finally produced, forcing OT. It was awesome that Brusty first game back with the Blades went so well for him. Throughout the game and into the eventual shoot-out Brusty was a total brick wall!
