McGrattan’s Trick, Boogaard Returns
Brian McGrattan had a monster night Friday. After sending Darcy Hordichuk to the ice just minutes into the game he notched a goal and an assist in the second period to complete the Gordie Howe Hat Trick.
Tanner Glass and Brandon Prust had a good bout at the same time as McGrattan and Hordi. Later in the game Rick Rypien also took on Prust. Like McGrattan, Rypien picked up his first goal of the season and Prust chipped in with two assists for the Flames. A solid night overall for the tough guys.
An Avs-Wings fight, really
While still promoted as a rivalry, there hasn’t been much hatred between Colorado and Detroit in some time. Nothing happened to re-spark it Saturday, but there was a real (and pretty good) fight in the Avs-Wings game between Cody McLeod and Brad May.
