Guess it was Old Man Sprott's night, in the end. Looking for all the world like -- I dunno, Brian Leetch? Tony Bergin? -- the Mudbugs captain motors through two zones and past a trio of blue jerseys to pop home the breakaway.
You hate to see a long OT game decided on a power play, and I was not so glued to CHL TV that I can say whether or not Hulshof let go similar infractions, but when it's a point-blank scoring chance where the attacking player clearly has possession and the defenseman is draped over his back, yeah, I might put up my arm for that one.
And Blair not only bounces back from his performance seven days ago, but racks up an assist.
