Re-Cap: Everblades vs. Stingrays (3/24/12)

Unfortunately, I couldn't track down a radio broadcast of the game. Sounds like it was a doozy officiating-wise.

It doesn't matter though. The Blades swept the team they could only afford to give one point to. I imagine they all curled into balls and qietly cried on the bus ride home to Charleston last night.

The Rays opened the scoring in the first the Blades didn't have any answer right away.

The Blades responded in the second by having the kind of second period they've been having all season. Four goals? Piece of cake for the Blades.

Matt Beca started things off with an unassisted goal at 3:55. Cedric McNicoll gave the Blades a lead on the power play at 4:40 (assisted by Piché and Bress). He added another because let's be honest, McNicoll isn't capable of only scoring one goal, he has to score two (assisted by Pitt and Fischer). Finally, Sebastien Piché extended his goal scoring streak to three games with a power play tally late in the period (assisted by McNicoll and Fischer).

The Stingrays netted another in the third, but I'm pretty sure that was just because John Muse felt bad for them. Who wouldn't? Your leading scorer is arrested for stealing a cab and you just dropped two spots in the standings? It's all kind of sad.

Anyway, Blades win it 4-2.

Three stars:
3. Fischer
2. Piché
1. McNicoll

No thoughts for you guys. Let's all just bask in the warm glow of the Blades incredible turn around.
