Prprich putting some big hits in especially on Lundin

13 minutes gone in a scrappy game by all accounts

Come on u Devil;s lets have a goal

Payette huffing and puffing his way around, more donkey than dragon for sure

Save Verner @36:50

Verner saves from Hill @38:04

Vipers Griffith hit Devils pipes @38:51

Last minute of second period

End of goal less 2nd period still 1-0 to the Vipers

The considered view is that the defence corps are not up to the job failing to clear their zone or keeping the puck in the attacking zone during powerplays

Cowmeadow, Hill and Prprich stand out for the Devils. Campbell & Latulippe playing well. Stone have a nightmare
