Today, the Denver Cutthroats played their first ever game, and won. I wasn’t able to be there, but I did listen to the majority of it online.The first period went scoreless, but things got exciting in the second. A.J. Gale scored the first goal in Cutthroat history seven and a half minutes in. Six minutes later, the Cutthroats extended their lead to two when Brad Smyth scored. The Missouri Mavericks responded before the end of the period by scoring a goal of their own. During the third period, the Cutthroats started off well, with a quick goal from Markus Lauridsen. However, the Mavericks were able to score the two more goals, tying things up and forcing overtime. In overtime, Jamie MacQueen scored for the Cutthroats, securing a win in dramatic fashion. Kent Patterson was in goal for the Fish, and he earned his first professional win.
In NHL news, the NHL has canceled all games until November 1 (remember, before this, only games through the 24th of October were canceled). Color me surprised.
