We tried something a little different tonight in uploading hi-lites from each period to youtube during the intermissions. the links are below.
It was looking like the Mustangs would skate off with a 2-0 win but with the net empty the Hawks scored two in the last minute to tie the game.

They say You don't win anything unless your last game of the year is a win. Well we did get a win in the last game of the year, but I think what the saying actually means is you need a win in your last game to win it all. So with the Regular Season out of the way let's get going in the Playoffs.

It took the Hounds nine tries to get a win vs the Mustangs but they came up with a 2-1 victory tonight at the Palace. I'm not sure what the problem is but the Mustangs with all the talent they have just can't seem to get it together on the power play. They went into the game tonight ranked ninth with a meager 16.7 % . Going 0-6 tonight won't help that out. But I am sure there will be brighter days ahead.

With the Mustangs on the power play and Richard Palmer on the bench again, Travis Mayan scored with just 0.5 seconds on the clock. Yup 0.5 seconds was all that was left and the Mustangs had tied the game. The officials talked about it for awhile and decided to count the goal. It was the right decision as you can see in the hi-lite below there was 0.5 seconds left.
So off to overtime we go. Travis Mayan had a great chance to end it when he rang the puck of the post. Richard Palmer came up with a couple of great saves to give Kalem Zary the chance to tip home a point shot and there you have it a 4-3 overtime win by the Mustangs.
