As if the several stories on the Adirondack Phantoms or the Matt Walker jokes this week weren't a dead giveaway, we made a trip up to Glens Falls, N.Y. over this past weekend to catch a few games.
After Saturday night's game against the Toronto Marlies, a 2-1 Phantoms win in the shootout, myself, Geoff and esteemed BSH reader Don prepared for a night out in Saratoga with beers and a radio show. Much to our surprise, we actually did talk hockey for just about all of the show, despite Geoff's many attempts to sabotage the endeavor with ridiculous impersonation attempts.
We talked about several players who impressed us over the weekend (Jason Akeson and Garrett Roe lead the list), the play of tall Tommy Sestito, Matt Walker's surprising foot speed, the crowd in Glens Falls and what hockey means to the small town of 14,000, the confusion of a five-round AHL shootout as opposed to a three-round NHL shootout and much more.
