Wow, what a night

Des Moines and Green Bay had 2 fights tonight. That's usually a lot for USHL games these days, but they were outdone not once, but twice. Lincoln and Indiana managed 4 fights, including the classic goalie fight (YouTube link). Cody Reichard and Bryce Christianson decided to get into the fun themselves.

The big one of the night was Cedar Rapids and Waterloo. I was watching this on pointstreak and wondered why the game had 26 seconds left for about 40 minutes. I finally found out:

Waterloo - Matthew DiGirolamo - (Goalie Leaving Crease), 2 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Matthew DiGirolamo - (Fighting (Stoppage) Game Ejection), 0 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Jon Madden - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Jon Madden - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Pasko Skarica - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Pasko Skarica - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Paul Weisgarber - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Paul Weisgarber - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Tim Gilbert - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Brett Olson - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Waterloo - Brett Olson - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34

Cedar Rapids - Brett Dickinson - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Brett Dickinson - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - David Boehm - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - David Boehm - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Jacob Cepis - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34

Cedar Rapids - Aaron Bogosian - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Kevin Wehrs - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Kevin Wehrs - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Doug Jones - (Fighting Major), 5 min, 19:34
Cedar Rapids - Doug Jones - (Fighting (Under 5 Mins) Game Misconduct), 0 min, 19:34


Both teams are going to be shorthanded for a couple of games. Waterloo loses Jon Madden, Pasko Skarica, Paul Weisgarber, Brett Olson, Tim Gilbert, and possibly Matt DiGirolamo. Cedar Rapids loses David Boehm, Brett Dickinson, Jacob Cepis, Aaron Bogosian, Kevin Wehrs, and Doug Jones. A total of 223 PIM were called in this game. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's the highest total yet this season.

Fargo already anticipating an AHL team.

Definitely an exciting night in the USHL.

One last note that was brought to my attention tonight. With the shutout loss to Tri-City tonight, Ohio enters the record books with the most times being shutout in a season with 12. Congrats to Ohio!

The USHL official photographer has his pictures of the Lincoln/Indiana game on the website: www.ushlimages.com. Good pictures of the goalie fight as well as action shots.
