At the first intermission Melnyk made a rare public appearance (his first of the season?) joining Ian Mendes for an interview. Looking particularily dapper in a beige leather jacket, Eugene elaborated a little on the organizations latest acquistition. These two points in particular stood out:
1. Updating the scoreboard is something they had been working on for "some time", but they ran into problems with a "vendor" which prolonged the process.
2. It was on Bettman's intervention in the situation that the organization was connected with Panasonic to source the new scoreboard.
