Good read, Shaun. I predict a perfect playoffs prognostication performance for you.

Say that five times fast.  And no, children: "that that that that that" doesn't count.  :disgust:

I was at rink at usual time but this is a 7:30pm start so the rink is relatively quiet right now.
Usher/Security meeting still on-going.
Last home game of year so press box crew is pretty loose.

Rivermen lines (as provided by the team)

Gorman - Colantone - Klecha
Keller - Stuart - Jones
Bremner - Hoomian - Hagaman
Witzel -         -    Dion

Question - does having this 'fourth line' make the difference for Peoria. Many games this season they went with 5 D-men and two extra skaters up front.
Are they fresher? Do thy get better match-ups?

I'm not familiar with Witzel's play.  Cody Dion could bring some fresh energy to the Rivermen if they are behind early in the 3rd or Trudel thinks the team needs a spark after he watches the first 10 minutes.  But if Cody gets carried away & ends up in the box once or twice (or more), the strategic value is lost.

Line for tickets is out the door and wrapping around the building 15 minutes before the puck drops
