Interupting the Baltic pictures....

....for a little more love. This time, from the Union Leader in New Hampshire.

Last night provided a rock-em, sock-em 4-2 victory by the Monarchs over the Toronto Marlies that saw too many hits to count, fights and hard-earned goals that sent all 5,332 in the Verizon Wireless Arena home a winner.
Monarchs goalie Jason LaBarbera (5-5-1) once again was Mr. Everything, making 35 saves. He saved a Toronto penalty shot. In fact, a penalty shot has never beaten LaBarbera in his career. Just before Stephenson's insurance goal, LaBarbera snuffed Westrum on the blind side during the 5-on-3.
"What a great save by LaBarbera," said Morris. "That was the turning point. Just took the pressure off."
Roussin's first was a finish in front of T.J. Kemp's rebound at 7:10 of the second period. At 11:00, Toronto's Marc Moro beat LaBarbera on a sharp wrister from the left circle. And 2:34 later, Roussin got his second on a power play. He almost lost the handle on the shot as moved at the net from inside the right circle and that alone may have fooled Marlies goalie J.F. Racine (35 saves).
I will be sporting the Labarbera jersey at Staples Center tonight in honor of the win!
