Third training camp scrimmage

For all of you Team B fans out there, good news. Team B ended the scrimmage portion of training camp with a 4-3 victory over Team A. Scott Brannon, Henrik Zetterberg, Adam Keefe and Randy Gelech scored for Team B. Igor Grigorenko, Johan Franzen and Jonathan Ericsson scored for Team A. A few notes from the scrimmage ...
-- Jiri Hudler was flying. He made smart plays and outskated opponents on the backcheck.
-- Grigorenko was better, but not outstanding. His goal came when with goalie Dominic Vicari out to play the puck and a bad hop going right to Grigorenko. With Vicari diving head-first back to the net, Grigorenko blasted a shot into the open goal.
-- Adam Keefe had a remarkable game. He fought Neil Clark early (slight edge to Clark). Then Keefe hit, hustled, scored on a deflections, then caused the turnover and made the 2-on-1 pass to Gelech for the winning goal.
-- Brent Sopel looked good and bad. He broke up a Zetterberg pass on a 4-on-2 and stepped up offensively on a few occasions. Sopel did, however, have a couple of defensive-zone turnovers.
-- Aaron Downey was quite noticeable. He was chippy with Ryan Oulahen on his first shift. Downey hit and pushed people to make great space. After the scrimmage's only fight, Downey first hollered approval to teammate Clark, then hollered more approval to Keefe. "Way to go Clarky. Way to go Keefe." Fighters' respect.
