Pink in the Rink: Gladiators vs Checkers

What's better than hockey? Hockey for a good cause. Every year the Gladiators have a fund raising promotion called "Pink in the Rink." They have tons of promotions and most famously they die the ice pink! ECHL and other minor teams around the country have been doing this for a few years and I was excited to see it for myself!




And, as a bonus, it was my buddy Marissa's 21st birthday. She's a big Mike Forney fan, can you tell?





What's really cool and cute since it was Valentine's Day is that in the face-off circle, they have little hearts instead of circles.

David Brown checking me out.





You know that any trip to a Gladiators game is gonna be a Chad Denny show!





Chad happy. Chad stretch.





Chad checking out Marissa's sign.





Chad thought Marissa's sign was pretty funny and was making sure Forney saw it.





Forney took some shit from the guys about the sign.





Brown peaking around the net.





Another cool thing about the event is that the Gwinett Gladiators were honoring our old IHL team, the Atlanta Knights. They had specials jerseys for the game.





Dave taking some shots.





ECHL All Star Drew Paris.





More shots for Brown.





Swarming the goalie.



First Period!


Seats were good for watching, but horrible for picture taking. I only took a few pictures. Glads score!





Dave taking a drink.





Can't get enough of a goalie face wash.





It was a fabulous first period for the Gladiators. My boy Chad Denny scored the first goal. Then it was Miller time and Tim Miller scored on a power play goal. The Gladiators ended the first period up 2-0




Maximus shooting Tshirts to the crowd.





One of the Glads guys about to shoot the giant lotto ball into the crowd for us to bounce around. I've been dying to hit one for the past few games. The ball bounced down to the guy below me and he hit the ball hard towards me but I ducked in time. It was so close to hitting my face the wind blew my hair up a little bit. WHOOSH



Second Period!


Welcome to this end of the ice, Munce!





Mifsud in the face off.





Chad in the face-off.





Get some, Mifsud!





Munce getting ready to see some shots...all 15 (total) of them.





Extreme Maximus close up!





The penalty box can't contain The Chad!





Munce making a save.

No scoring in the second period and the score was still 2-o Gladiators.




Maximus has a new ride, but he's still shooting shirts!



Third Period!


David Brown is back on my end.





Forney!





Not a great picture, but I love that you can see the snow job Brown got.





Brown goes flying.





Action in front of Brown.





Brown getting low in the crease.





It's getting crowded in Brown's crease!





Snow Angel! I always call it doing the "dead man."





"Okay guys, let me up."





Brown played his ass and made 36 saves, unfortunately there were 37 shots.





Brown: "Really guys? You couldn't clear the zone for the last 6.9 seconds so I could get a shut out??"





Woo Hoo! Gladiators win!
