Great game to be at, another sellout, crowd into it. The Star Wars pregame video and theming throughout the night was well done. As for the game, after the Wild first goal, the Canes took it from there, and when they scored on the 5 on 3 with that beauty, it just seemed like this game was going to be a win...except for the variables of the ice and the refs. The ice was not good and the officiating seemed uneven, Canes had two interference penalties against but seemed to have worse done to them with no call, Aho and line were great, the penalty kill good, Petr solid...and most of the boys really got into the Storm Surge.
It has been awhile since I’d seen a hat trick, did they always offer 25% off on hats after the game when a hat trick was scored? Great marketing ploy, cause they sold a ton of hats after the game, the line to get into The Eye post game looked crazy long!
