After a mostly flat first, the Crunch certainly came alive and answered a few of the concerns fans have had. All in all it was a pretty good night as the Crunch beat Lake Erie in OT by a score of 4-3!

The Crunch has just released that Nate Guenin has been named captain for the 11-12 season. This isn’t exactly a shock, as several times it was mentioned that Holick was waiting for Guenin’s send down before naming a captain. Center Nathan Smith and right wing Troy Bodie have been named alternate captains.
I’m pretty happy with this combination. Although Uncle Joe turned into a pretty bitter disappointment last year after we said many of the same glowing things about him, I think Guenin has the strength, the age, and the experience to lead this team. My love for defensive defensemen is well documented. I’m thrilled with anyone willing to go out there and play the game hard.
