That little crack opened up a tiny bit more as the B-Sens skated away with a 4-2 win in the last home game of the season. The rest of the series now shifts back to Houston where it began with a split. Another split and the B-Sens will not be coming home empty handed.
The win did not come without a cost, as Jared Cowen suffered a possible concussion when elbowed in the head by O'Sullivan. Cowen accompanied the team on the trip down to Houston, possibly indicating that his injury is not a concussion. He remains a game-time decision, and both Wiercioch and Schira are ready to draw in, if required.
Also, after the game, assistant coach Steve Stirling suffered a heart-attack and underwent an emergency quadruple bypass surgery. The procedure went well, and Stirling is recovering in hospital. It remains to be seen how this will affect the team. Will it galvanized them in a "Win for Coach Steve!" attitude or will we see a subdued team, concerned about their mentor? I don't know, but a guy who just had a heart attack would probably prefer to see a game where they score a bunch in the first and then play a boring road game the rest of the way, cruising to an easy win. His doctors may not even let him watch the game unless it's like that. So, perhaps, instead of "Win for Coach Steve" it should be "Blow them away in the 1st so Coach Steve can enjoy two periods of relaxing road-trap."
... and oh, what heights we'll hit -- on with the show THIS IS IT!!!!!
