The Loggers wasted no time scoring the opening goal only 13 seconds into the game as a shot was roofed over the shoulder of a stunned Mike Smith, while the defensive pairing of Morden/Mullin did their best pylon impressions.
Power forward turned goal scorer Chris "John Deere" Zamzow, dipsy doodled thru the Logger defence to even the score midway thru the first 40 minute first period.
On a feed from Wade Cable, Jeff Knight continued his hot
streak and gave CU the lead, being the only guy to beat red hot Logger goaltender Joey "Bats" Moshenko's
glove hand this month. Barry Eggie added a snipe with 12 seconds left to give
CU a 3-1 lead heading into intermission. Early in the second Zamzow potted his second of the
night, giving CU a three goal lead .

CU peppered Logger tender Moshenko to the tune of 72 shots on the night. Moshenko's performance rivaled that of Czech netminder Petr Mrazek who stoned Team USA in Edmonton earlier in the evening.
Post-game Riley "-1" Morden (partnered on d with pinching Darren Mullin) was quick to mock the new Munro/Zamzow pairing, claiming only Smitty rescued them from a minus performance. However a quick check of the official game summary didn't seem to support his "story" as the pairing clocked in at a solid +3 until a goal at garbage time.
Rookie scoring sensation Clayton Mychalchuk was nearly a last minute scratch when word spread that the usual post-game wings would not be available. This devastating news may have directly affected the rookies outing as he was mysteriously held off the scoring sheet.
CU added Jeff Knight and Darren Mullin to the IR list. Knight took a helmet to the nose and was cut for 6, while "Muggsy" was headed home to Angela to sign up for the Dec 31 "Ice and Aspirin Club" as he nursed a sore leg after receiving a two-handed chop from a Logger forward. Seems the forward didn't take kindly to Mullin hooking him around the elbow (or was it neck?) on a partial break.
