Another hockey season, another white out. SPOILER ALERT: Oswego won. It was very exciting. Here are a few photo's from Saturday's game:
I start with photos of the line to get in. This is to illustrate the intense interest in the game. The game was sold out last Monday, but it was important for standing room only, and student ticket holders to get there early to get a good spot. It's not like this for most games. There was 3,000 people in attendance. Games normally average between 1,800, and 2,200.
It was a good contest between the two arch-rivals. Oswego came out and got their first point 40 seconds into the game! Despite the initial adrenaline rush, it was a close game throughout, and a great time. Plattsburgh had a difficult time trying to tie the game in the moments of the game because they were assessed a "Too Many Men on the Ice" penalty. Ouch! Here's the last few moments of the game:
With that, there are only a handful of games left in the regular season. Plattsburgh is likely a team Oswego will see again in the post season.
