The Waterloo Blackhawks scored 8 powerplay goals tonight at Young Arena and cruised past the Lincoln Stars by a score of 10-2. Lincoln went 0-for-3 on the powerplay, while Waterloo went 8-for-15. Lincoln was whistled for 118 minutes in penalties and Waterloo was whistled for 15 minutes. That's not a typo.
Needless to say, USHL referee Tommy Albindia won't be getting a x-mas card from Chad Johnson or Jimmy McGroarty anytime soon.
I'm not going to spend any considerable time with this recap. Ugly game all around. Best to forget this horrible excuse for a hockey match and move on. If you'd like to vent and leave a comment below, please do so.
Lincoln will be back in action this Saturday night at the IceBox against the Tri-City Storm. I'm sure there will be suspensions handed down, so hopefully there will be enough players left to field a full team against the Storm.
Wishing everyone out there a happy and healthy 2013!
