- In regulation time, their goalie stopped like 53 out 58 shots on goal. Our goalie stopped only 10 of 15 SOG, but blockd all three in the shootout. Who had the better game?

- Why was the Des Moines team nicknamed the Buccaneers? I can't imagine many pirates in Des Moines. Maybe it's because Iowa grows a lot of corn and corn costs about a buck an ear.
