Congratulations to Memphis. And what a shocker for the Ice. Credit them for never giving up. That they didn't really have a chance to win tonight is another echo of Austin-Bossier 2001, but I also remember what Ken McRae said after the Bats went down last year -- "you can't win in the playoffs without a power play." Obviously, over four games Memphis had much better special teams.
And Mark Richards is the Claude Lemieux of minor league goaltenders.
What can I say about the Bats except, woo-hoo! Another series where special teams were huge, with the breaks and bounces of Game Four a giant turning point.
