Here are some of the photos I snapped during Friday's game between the Lake Erie Monsters and the Chicago Wolves. I don't have much of a detailed report of the game, because I spent much of the time talking with friends, and trying to keep watch on a crazy 3-year-old. But a good time was had by all, even though the Monsters lost (though they did play a good game after a sloppy first 15 minutes or so).

Again the Monsters lost 3-2. Trevor Cann had a rough 1 period giving up 2 goals on 8 shots. He was replaced in the 2nd period by Billy Sauer, who saved 15 of 16 and earned the 3rd star.
