The Snowy Daily Phil Esposito (2/2/11)

By Unknown author

There were 22 former Hawks to take the ice last night, which is as many inches of snow as some of our area has seen over the last 24 hours. The two goalies got no decisions, while the 20 skaters were able to produce three goals and five assists, amassing eight points. Hope that everyone is safe and sound in their house and this epic snowstorm didn’t destroy any of your property. As a Meteorology major I have been watching the development of this storm since Saturday and it is a truly amazing storm. Just be safe out there and dont shovel too much. Hopefully you can get out of this mess! Enjoy the Espo, hopefully it warms you up a little!
