What's the deal with the Zamboni crew? The ice was resurfaced all the way to the faceoff dots on Philly's shooting end, on the Rats side it was barely touching the circles in the slot. A lot wider for the visitors! I wasn't sure if it would cause anything, but all the Rats who skated the puck into the rough area didn't score (puck bounced on them when it hit the rough ice or sped up when it hit the smooth ice), while the guys who kept it in the smooth ice did! That happened earlier in the year too, Rats had a chance to even the shootout and Rodney skated into the rough ice in the SLOT and lost the puck. I'm not saying that he would have scored, but the poor Zamboni job took away his chance to. Not that it makes a difference in the standings now, but earlier in the year it could have.

Rechlicz is in the game, wearing #40. I can't belive that. Avery skated up to him and looked like he said "You're a (??) big boy.... You're a big boy (laughs)"

RR35 is right. There was a womens college volleyball game on TW3 while the Rats/Syracuse game was being broadcast in Syracuse.

I'd like to see a guy like Mike Sgroi get the nod, he's in the ECHL right now. He was a lot of fun to watch a couple years ago, and with Gillies out there's a spot for him.

Scranton has games Friday, Saturday and Wednesday. Anyone think they'll be opposed to postponing Sunday?
