The Crimespree Hockey tournament kicked off in the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, where Gabbi’s Rangers hosted Andy’s Bruins. Ted Donato scored the first tournament goal, five minutes into the game, assisted by Patrice Bergeron. Five minutes later, Nathan Horton scored on a P.J. Axelsson rebound to put the Bruins up 2-0. The Rangers’ Eric Christensen cut the lead at 12:29, but Ray Bourque put the Bruins back up by two 34 seconds later. Shortly after, Joe Thornton took a high sticking penalty and the Rangers made them pay when Alexei Kovalev scored on the powerplay. Tim Thomas and Henrik Lundqvist stood on their heads throughout the remainder of the game as the final score was 3-2, Bruins.

Rob’s Blue Jackets traveled to Los Angeles to take on Jeremy’s Kings. From the start, the Kings were ready to go, as they scored two goals in the first 90 seconds (Ferraro and Robitaille). Later in the first, Nikolai Zherdev gave Columbus life as he made the score 2-1. Both the Kings and Jackets traded goals in the second period two minutes apart (by Gretzky and Fritsche) to give a 3-2 LA lead heading into the third. But the third period was all Kings, as Eric Belanger and Gretzky each scored on the powerplay and Kevin Stevens added late goal to give the Kings a 6-2 win.

The final game pitted Joey’s Penguins against Dan’s Flyers. As low scoring as the game was, it thrilled the crowd at Consol Energy Center. Rod Brind’Amour opened scoring halfway through the first period, and Jason Smith added a goal in the second to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead they would never relinquish. Roman Cechmanek turned away 32 Pittsburgh shots to earn the shutout.
