To quote Erik Drygas "What the hell was he thinking?" I have no clue.
With 6 minutes remaining in the game, UAA coach Dave Shyiak got a little desperate and pulled Gunderson for an extra skater to help boost an offense that wasn't even close to producing. You'd think if you pulled your goaltender with that much left on the clock, an empty net goal would be inevitable.
I fail to understand his logic for making the call to pull him that early. But, I'm not a coach, he is. Granted, I don't have a 62-126-24 record either.
Tonight, Colton Beck and Kevin Petovello each add a pair of goals. Andy Taranto with a goal and an assist to round out the top 3 performers for the 'Nooks. Brad Gorham with his only career goal tonight for the junior. Tomorrow, the Nanooks will head down to Anchorage at around noon, get a pre-game meal in and bring their mules back out on the ice for another 60 minute ass kicking.
