It was 30 years ago today, when the Challenger space shuttle exploded 73 seconds into it’s flight over the Kennedy Space Center. All seven U.S. astronauts on board died.

We took in an AHL game on Tuesday in Des Moines at the Wells Fargo Arena. The Iowa Wild was hosting the Chicago Wolves.

With the Iowa Wild being an affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, I did enjoy watching some of the NHL club’s prospects, including: Mike Reilly, Christian Folin, and Jordan Schroeder. Folin would go on to score a goal, while Reilly & Schroeder would tally assists.

The third period would end tied at 3, but the Wolves’ Pat Cannone would score his third goal of the night 41 seconds into the 3 on 3 overtime period. It was the first time I have seen the 3 on 3 OT, but it ended so quick that it was hard to really make an opinion. There’s a lot of open ice out there during the 3 on 3.
