Well if that doesn't sell tickets ...

What a great way to start at home.

It really builds team bonding in there, guys sticking up for each other. When you have a good comeback like that it gets the guys together. Everyone on the bus is excited and ready to play the next game.

As far as the fights at the end of the game, we have to protect each other out there. That Lawson guys was running around a little bit, nothing against referee Paul Depuydt, maybe he didnt see it, but we all decided to stand up and help each other out and protect each other.

Any stick to the face, or attempt to go to the face -- you can take an eye out. You have to respect the other player. Chris Brassard wasn't even looking on the one penalty. It should have been an extra penalty.

As far as the game goes, Musky came in after the first period and said they were getting too many shots in close, in tight. We had to get our feet going and get some energy going and win the one-on-one battles.

The boys just dug deep and kept it simple. I think that's what got it dont. We dug deep and were worrying a little too much about systems. We decided to go out there and play.

No we're headed to Memphis for two straight games. It's going to be weird to play them without Don Parsons. He was always a league leader, a guy we always wanted to watch out there on the ice. I'm sure it's going to be a big loss for them and a gain for us, but they have a new team, I'm sure coach Kevin McClelland has a hard-working team and he went in a different direction for a good reason. They are in our division, tonight was a great win, but we have to put it behind us and worry about these next four points.

Let me start off by thanking you Danny for taking the time to give us fans an inside point of view from the games and the team.

I thought the guys were bit nervous in their first game at home, but I have to assume Muscutt and the vets on the team helped the kids calm down and as you had said to make it simple. Great job and great character builder. Old time hockey!!!

Good luck this weekend!!

Thanks Dan for your words to the fans and congrats on a great win over the Bucks. Its sure gonna be fun (and maybe frustrating too at times) watching this team come together over the next few weeks.
