Thoughts from the Worcester game and in general...

*If every member of the Thunder matched Conor Riley's intensity, Adirondack would've won by two goals. He was all over the ice.

*It was a decent debut for Mackenzie Blackwood. He probably would've liked the second goal back, but there was nothing to be done about the third. That was solid passing by Worcester. Also, he stepped up big in the third period and OT.

*Losing Desmond Bergin near the end of the first period is a bad setback (he didn't reappear the rest of the game). I'll admit I'm bad about noticing specific positions because of hockey's flow, but I know Paul Rodrigues took a couple shifts back there, so he may have been the designated replacement all the time. Also, it seemed as if they played Matheiu Brodeur more (and didn't THAT turn out to be fortunate?)

*Blake Thompson got in some BLOWS against Matt Lane during their fight.

*Shane Conacher's two assists give him a team-high 20. 

*Every Worcester game at Cool Insuring Arena this year I've seen more of the Railers' Woody Hudson than anyone. The dude (and at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, he is a "dude") is everywhere, and the Thunder cannot knock him off the puck.

*Again, the win streak stops at two -- for the fifth time this season. I'm really starting to think it's mental. They can't handle prosperity.
