Three stars of the Thunder sweep

Coaches love to talk about players who ‘step up” or are “game changers” in the postseason. Here’s three who certainly made a difference in the first round sweep against Colorado:

Olivier Roy — Stockton doesn’t win without him. The goaltender was steady all the time and red hot at other times, allowing just five goals in the three games and with a whopping .943 save percentage.

Max Campbell — He scored four goals in the final two games as the Thunder locked up the series, and had six points overall against the Eagles.

Chris D’Alvise — He won the second game with a goal in overtime, and that’s the one Colorado had to win to get back in the series. D’Alvise had five points, second only to Campbell.

Next up are the defending champion Alaska Aces. And Stockton will need these guys — and others — to knock off the top seed in the Western Conference.
