Frostbite vs. Vipers The paid attendance was reported :00 at 757 fans although by the looks of
things someone was doing some mighty
creative counting.

First shot of the game -

Adirondack's Mark Hurtubise 51 seconds
into the contest scores off the right
side and just like that one shot, one
goal, 1 to nothing.

But give the Vipers some credit.
Watch the home boys work hard just
outside of the crease and eventually
they will dig up a goal as Mark Scott
ties it on the power play opportunity.

Then watch the great interception
by Jan Jas, who makes the steal and
puts the puck on the top shelf. *CG final Adirondack
6 Roanoke led 2-to-1 in the first, 3 to 2 Roanoke in the second, but gave 4 unanswered 3 goals in the final period and the
Vipers lose it 6-to-3.
