RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, -5, 6 PIM (hooking, roughing, goaltender interference)
Season totals: 36 GP, 27-17-44, -9, 18 PIM

This game was ugly, with several roughing, unsportsmanlike, and spearing penalties. The Cougars actually outshot the Rockets, but were never really in the game on the scoreboard, getting down 3-0 in the first six minutes.

He also set a career high for most penalties in one game.
