....Will we have a "healthy" line-up tonight? We'll see soon.
....Looks like Hewitt returns to tend goal tonight and we have a full lineup - minus Moser and Borstmayer.
....Some new lines tonight.... starting Scheidl - Jung - Ouellette.
....Martell - Weal - Mitchell.
....Olstad - Reddin - Stevenson.
....Neigum - Stephenson - Rieder.
....Warriors take the early lead 3:58 in on a howitzer from Svendsen that he ripped low glove side past Hewitt. Looked like he wanted that one back. Bowman and McFaul pick up the helpers.
....McIlrath and Stevenson pick up unsportsmanlike minors 4:35 in. This could get interesting. 4 on 4 hockey.
....Reddin picks up a hooking minor 5:10 in giving the Warriors a 4 on 3 powerplay.
....great kill. Negated by a terrible defensive lapse by Blidstrand and Schneider. Svendsen gets the goal with Paradis picking up the assist at 7:42. 2-0 Warriors.
....We don't appear to have a backup netminder as Ketlo isn't on the bench. He did appear to be sluggish during the warmup.
....Pats take another hooking minor as Weal gets called at 14:17. MJ to the powerplay.
....McFaull takes a roughing minor with 56.8 seconds left in the first giving the Pats their first powerplay of the contest.
....17-8 shots for the Jaw.
