If BC's intention was to run PK drills they did a good job.. lots of penalties on both teams tonight. The PP never really got into a rhythm, they kept up with the dump-around-the-boards play, NB did a good job defending it, and BC never really adjusted [no need to... it's an exhibition].
Muse was definitely rusty as he gave up two quick goals. Petrecki got thrown out on a boarding major, which was kind of the lowpoint of the game.
Atkinson was flying around like he had something to prove. Definitely one of the best BC players, along with Matt Lombardi, who was named BC player of the game.
On a side note, we absolutely love it up here. Great people, beautiful little city, lots of nice bars and restaurants, and the UNB rink was sweet. Coach York was nice enough to invite our traveling party to dinner with the team postgame, which was cool.
I'll have lots of great pictures to share once I get them uploaded. Looking forward to game two.
By the way, if BC wins tomorrow, the Pete Kelley Challenge Cup will be determined by a shootout.
