Mudbugs flying during Tuesday's win

Tuesday's Mudbugs-Blazers game might have been the best Mudbugs' performance I've seen in a long time.

Shooting video for our weekly Tales from the Swamp, I spent the game sitting at ice level between the teams' benches. Obviously, it's an entirely different perspective from the press box, but the game had a terrific tempo.

No one's going to confuse the Central Hockey League with the NHL, but Tuesday's game had terrific flashes that were certainly comparable.

There were few stoppages or whistles, especially in the third period. There was one stretch of several minutes that was nothing but a flurry of up-and-down action and line changes. It was a great pace for fans to watch. Too bad there was a less-than-boisterous crowd there to see it.

A couple of the Mudbugs' goals were the result of some of the best passing and offensive attack I've seen and reminded me of some of the Bugs' old teams. Both came on the newly assembled line of Kevin Cooper, Elias Godoy and Justin Aikins.

Coach Scott Muscutt has said this team is one of the fastest, if not the fastest, he's had. It was evident Tuesday night.
