Memorial Cup – Giants Close the Deal!

What a great game today! All four teams are now champions 😀 It was great to the see the Coliseum full of towel waving screaming fans. (no empty “sold” seats today)

It was amazing to see the Giants get the forecheck going for the whole first period. Awesome effort, but kudo’s to the Hat to keep it scoreless.

All the goals were great, but I kinda thought the Hat’s goal was the result of an uncalled “pick play”.

But that “Hat” goal meant that the game was 1-1 going into the third. What could be better for us fans than a game being tied going into the final period?

In the final period the good guys closed the deal! Excellent ❗ Lucic won MVP, but it could easily have been any of his linemates. The Lucic, Rabbit and Repic unit was on fire the whole week. ( I’m guessing that Repic’s drafting rating is gonna go up a bit after this week 😀 )

This was my second Mem Cup. I was in Spokane for ’98. This is a great tournament. Cheers to all those who made it a great week.
