Sorry about two posts in a day, but I’ve got to send some major props to Checkers goaltender Mike Murphy on his 5-0 defeat of the Hershey Bears.
According to the John Walton of the Hershey Bears, he’s the first goaltender since 2005 to shut out the home team in their arena. That’s quite a feat!
Congratulations, Murph, on the shutout, and on bringing home four points to Charlotte. We need every one we can get.
The Checkers play in Syracuse on Tuesday, then return home on Thursday to face the Connecticut Whale.
