I feel like I'm watching that episode of Married With Children where the devil makes a deal with Al Bundy to take the Bears to the Super Bowl, but then takes his football powers away so he can't win the Super Bowl... except hockey, and an entire organization.

Top-seeded Rouyn-Noranda took care of Rimouski in Game 1 of their semi-final series, winning 5-1 Friday in a penalty-filled contest. The Huskies finished the regular season with an astounding 59-8-0-1 record and 119 points - 12 more than anyone else. They improved to 8-2 in the playoffs thanks to two goals by Joel Teasdale, a Montreal free agent signing. Game 2 is Saturday.

CLE-5
SYR-3

Cleveland Leads the Series 1-0

Eddie Pasquale allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
10:15 CLE Letestu (1), (Milano, DeSalvo)
12:26 CLE MacInnis (1), (unassisted)
17:55 SYR Volkov (1), (Verhaeghe, Gaunce)(PP)

Third Period

13:09 CLE Stenlund (1), (Sherwood, Cockerill)(PP)
14:01 CLE Dalpe (1), (MacInnis, Vigneault)
18:08 SYR Verhaeghe (1), (Barre-Boulet, Conacher)
19:23 CLE Simpson (1), (unassisted)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe and Alex Barre-Boulet were the game's first and second stars.

Syracuse was guilty of getting off to a slow start and didn't get back to even footing until midway through the final frame, only to come apart at the seams and allowed a couple of goals in less than a minute shortly thereafter. So now the Crunch fall squarely behind the eight ball going into Game Two, and I'm starting to really, REALLY hate the state of Ohio.
