Well ACC got the first goal again tonight, but didn't stop at just one. After scoring four unanswered goals through the first 40 minutes, the Nanooks had some serious soul searching to do. And although they played a fantastic 3rd period, they had just one goal to show for it. A Cody Kunyk power play marker off the rebound that would be the game's final goal.
I hate the fact that it goes to a shootout to decide something this big. It's one thing for an extra point in the conference standings. But another entirely for a title between two archrivals. I'm not in favor of it, but I'll never get my wishes for a best of 3 or 5.
But I'll take it. ACC played a good game. But the shootout experience for the 'Nooks earned the cup victory, the 10th for the Blue and Gold to ACC's 8.
