    Pre-season dick-riders could not contain their 239 nostalgia boners. Seeing a team with DMart, Marty, Wizz, Cougs together, it was certain among pundits that this team would go 33-0 and sweep their way to the cup.

    Let's introduce the spoilers of Mark It Zero.

    G - ponch x29

    We expected their best. We expected their brightest. They didn't show up.

    Game 1
    The pressure of being the best team ever gets to NCA quickly, as they take a penalty off the opening faceoff and another a minute later. We score a goal on the 5 on 3, then another late in the period short-handed. Obviously, pass-first Sauce scores both. Ponch and the backcheck clamp up tight and only allow 1 goal. Sauce wraps up his hatty late in the 3rd with an undressing of poor Magilla and Dualism. For good measure, Sauce snipes Dualism 1 more time. 4-1 W (1-0 MIZ)

    Game 2
    A much tighter affair. 18 total shots between the two teams and a strategy that could only be described as "For the love of God, shut Sauce down!" was employed by NCA. Didn’t make a difference, with Nickify and Hall of Fame opening their bank accounts in the 1st and 2nd periods respectively. Wizzy finally broke loose for a wrap special that Ponch got his pad to just as it broke the line. Not to be outdone, Nickify put his 2nd away with an even more special wrap. A late Wizzy cut and goal gave NCA life, only to have it snuffed out by a penalty with 1 minute to go. Sauce had no points, yet we still won. Imagine! 3-2 W (2-0 MIZ)

    Game 3

    The first 30 minutes of the game included exactly 0 goals. The deadlock was broken after an HoF penalty and a soft wrister from the point that bounced off of yours truly and into the net. NCA took their first lead and everything was right in the 239iverse. Or was it?

    When Sauce is cooking, someone is eating. In game 3, that was Swagg. A simple tap-in off a delicious dish from Sauce, late in the 2nd, tied the game. In the 3rd, Sauce fed Swagg up the middle, and #92 didn't waste the breakaway, burying the GWG on his backhand. Defense and goalie held up, and for a 2nd time in the series, NCA was held to a single goal and swept out of our arena. 2-1 W (3-0 MIZ)
