The Saints were flying high on the night and finished another complete game challenge; outshooting the Capitols 33 to 26 and shutting down all 4 of their power play attempts on the evening. The Saints ran out with 8 different goal scorers in what was one of the most exciting Saints games I've seen. The flurry of goals across the second period took the score from down 1 at 1-2, to up 4-2 in just over a minute!

It was a blast to be able to hang out and pre-game with both Robert Miller, President of Business Operations with the Saints and Alex Dixon, President & CEO of the DRA. I caught up with both of them on the ins-and-outs of the new Dubuque Ice Arena, and everything Saints.
