Bat Interupts Junior Hockey Game

An unexpected visitor joined the Green Bay Gamblers on the ice during their 5-2 victory against Grand Rapids in a United States Hockey League Game on Wednesday night. The game was delayed when a bat was flying around the ice with 16:42 remaining in the third period. Two Gamblers players knocked the bat out the air and a maintenance worker removed it with a shovel before the game was allowed to continue.

of course Buffalo Sabres fans are well aware this isn't the first time this has happened. It occurred during the strangest hockey game ever played during the 1975 Stanley Cup Finals between the Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers. The incident with the bat happened early in the game and later the entire Ice Surface was covered in a dense fog.

The Sabres might have received some bad luck from that incident becase they eventually lost to the Flyers, the Gamblers still time to erase any possible curse.
