All-star fun, Day 1

Sorry for the lack of contact; wireless was spotty earlier. As tweeted, nothing all that thrilling from the local perspective. Matt Donovan salvaged an OK first hardest-shot with a 98.1 on his second. Nino Niederreiter went 4-for-7 in the accuracy contest.

The Rumored Conference trailed all night long until their last two shooters in the shootout. Mark Arcobello got around Niklas Svedberg’s left pad to tie it, and Marty St. Pierre followed with another goal to give the Rumored Conference a 12-11 lead; Justin Peters just went 6-for-6 against the likes of Audy-Marchessault and Whitfield to preserve that win.

Niederreiter and Donovan rode the bus home from Norfolk, and Donovan drove them up this afternoon.

Hopefully more communicative tomorrow. We’ll see.
