Another OT game, another 70 minutes without a goal… and this time an Albany win. Game 7 is Tuesday night at the Wachovia Center; it’ll be at least the eighth Game 7 in the AHL in three years. Boyd Kane went and cross-checks Bryan Rodney after Kirk MacDonald scored, and Patrick Williams wonders if he’ll be the next player suspended. (Tom Sestito of Syracuse got three games Saturday for slugging a goaltender.)
Speaking of, out in Winterpeg, Derek MacKenzie scored 10:54 into OT, giving Syracuse its third lead of the series. The Crunch have two chances at home to win one game and wreck my bracket. Meanwhile, Providence started the Atlantic Division final in fine form, a 4-0 win over Portland. Sobotka and Nokelainen were both in.
Chicago finished off Milwaukee with a 30-save Ondrej Pavelec shutout; the division final begins Thursday.
Luch Aquino and Fort Wayne are going to the U-Haul Final.
Reminder, if it’s up your alley: Bridgeport has its equipment/collectable sale in the morning at the barn. (Can’t show up myself: driving in the other direction for a little women’s lax game…)
