Blades lose in OT, McCarron plays game 200, teddy bears pour onto ice
The Florida Everblades fell to the Kansas City Mavericks 5-4 in overtime Saturday at home on a night when there were a few other highlights of mention.
Blades captain “Johnny Mac” McCarron suited up for his 200th game as a Blade, wearing an ugly Christmas sweater jersey. And that coincided with one of the best traditions in hockey — the teddy bear toss.
Fans showered the ice with teddy bears the moment Zach Magwood scored to tie the game 1-1 in the first period. The Blades collected them later take them to area hospitals for child patients during the holidays.
