(6)River Rats vs Northstars(4)

River Rats erupt with 5 second period goals to start season strong

After facing a 2-0 deficit, the defending champs put on a remarkable offensive display in the middle fifteen minutes. There didn’t need to be any hero or anybody in particular to spark the surge. The River Rats used their balance line up to get scoring done by five different players. M.Dettore and N.Cordelione collected three points each in the frame which resulted in three late second period goals. Marco Diaco joined that club by posting a lone third period tally for the River Rats, who look to dominate the regular season after being crowned not too long ago. As for the Northstars, D.Traversy was a force scoring twice along with a helper.

(3)Icons vs Legacy(1)

Icons top Legacy in anticipated season match up

It didn’t matter that this was just the first game of a regular season, this battle had more on the line. Legacy may look at it as just an ordinary match up but they would just be fooling themselves if they didn’t care. The Icons have prided their success on using a very deep bench which seems to be a very important ingredient for why they are that good. As long as they defend the way they do and chip in a goal here and there, then many teams will struggle to beat them. P.Karvouriaris,M.Arkalis and C.Stamadianos each scored in different frames while C.Stavriadis stopped 24 of 25 shots. The intensity was high but the respect was there as both sides limited their trip to the penalty box. Both clubs will meet one more time or possibly a third time which will only suggest for another great battle.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Costa Stavriadis of the Icons. The net minder may have seen this sentence once or twice before or maybe even a little more than that as he once again earns the player of the night. The Brilliant net minder just came off three championships in the Autumn session and will look to do the same with great teams in front of him.

(7)French Connection vs Street Ballers(6) O.T

P.Hargreaves wrap around goal lifts French Connection over Street Ballers

The lead was passed back and forth Thursday night, fromm one team to the other and back again. Three times the game swung and the French Connection won the seesaw battle with an overtime marker. With already two goals during regulation time, P.Hargreaves swung behind the net to end the game on a wrap around. The French Connection started strong building a 2-0 first period lead before falling apart giving up six straight goals. M.Beaudry shifted the momentum collecting a hat trick while A.Jalbert scored twice during that span. Normally a 6-2 lead after two periods feels like it’s more than enough, but that wasn’t the case for the Street Ballers as it was their turn to fall apart. The next five goals all belonged to the French Connection and just like that this contest turned on a dime.

(4)P.E.Y.O Vs SBS Trashers(4) S.O

Both sides meet early in spirited rematch

It wasn’t quite the playoff round both sides went through weeks ago, but it sure felt like it for a regular season match up. The SBS Trashers entered the night carrying a bitter taste and wanted nothing more than to take down the recent champs. For the most part, it was the P.E.Y.O in control by playing with the lead. J.Pantelis avoided a slow start to his season by ripping three goals and an assist. The SBS Trashers were stuck trailing most of the game but eventually gave themselves a chance when M.Elfassy posted his second to tie the game at four goals apiece. Despite playing for ten more minutes along with a sudden death frame, neither side were able to get it done. Not even in the shootout after sending three players each where both S.Brown and R.Pampena of the Trashers shined.

(7)Deadlast vs Bramabulls(1)

Deadlast romps past Bramabulls

A goaltending duel between F.Vigliotti and G.Follano failed to materialize on Thursday night as Deadlast crushed the Bramabulls. Vigliotti shows no signs of slowing down as the veteran net minder lived up to the hype denying all but one goal. With the help of their captain, C.Zafiropoulos was the only player to score twice along with a helper. The game was fairly close for two periods but that all changed by the third where Deadlast added three more tallies. If Deadlast can hand a team like the Bramabulls this kind of loss, then maybe they will be targeted as a front runner. After all, they did fall short in a very close final versus the P.E.Y.O.

(2)Eagles vs Mohicans(7)

Mohicans score four goals in second period in 7-2 win over Eagles

The Mohicans pounced on the Eagles in the second period, scoring four goals and showed no mercy with two more by the third. A.Daher, captain of his club and L-P Rocque each scored twice while S.Lachapelle stopped every Eagle except for S.Courtemanche. The Eagles felt handcuffed as they struggled to claw back into the game. Knowing that every match counts for precious points, the Eagles can’t afford to start this session like the last one. Every game will matter, and with still plenty of time, K.Certosini will have to take it a game at a time to figure out ways to collect some wins.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Patrick Hargreaves of the French Connection. On a beautiful play behind the net, the quick forward ended the game on a wrap around goal to complete his hat trick and give the French Connection a remarkable come from-behind victory.

(5)Fat Roy vs Dragons(3)

Captain C.Zafiropoulos strikes twice in win over Dragons

C.Zafiropoulos had two goals and an assist, and J.Pantelis scored the winner just past the mid way point of the game to down the Dragons early on in the season. The captain wasted no time getting his name on the score sheet barley 90 seconds into the game. To his help, P.Elizardo sent two perfect passes to his captain while scoring once as well. At no point were Fat Roy in any sort of trouble. The Dragons fell behind very early and were forced to play catch up all night long. They did however make things interesting when L.Dulcetta and P.Cardillo tallied late in the second frame, but that was as good as it got. F.Vigliotti got credited the win after facing 19 shots over his counterpart P.Assadi, who didn’t get the start he wanted.

(3)Trappers vs Underdogs(4)

Underdogs hang on to edge out Trappers

A dominant start carried the Underdogs in what ended up as a nail biter in the end. P.Nakhle made the score 3-0 with his second, and the Underdogs looked to have an easy night just six minutes into the contest. But whether it was the Underdogs slowing down or the Trappers just finding their groove, this contest went undecided up until the final buzzer. The Trappers climbed back into the game with help of D.Lavalee’s three points. J.Richer wasn’t too pleased with his start between the pipes but shook off plenty of rust as the game went on. In the end, the Underdogs tightened up and found a way to not concede the equalizer with half a period remaining.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Costa Zafiropoulos of Fat Roy. Leading by example, the veteran sharp shooter keeps on finding the back of the net. The Fat Roy captain posted two goals and an assist in a 5-3 win over the Dragons.

Wednesday January 18

(1)Spartans vs Raging Rhinos(11)

Raging Rhinos excel right away in season debut

It was close while it lasted. The Spartans kept up in the first half of the game but couldn’t stop the bleeding when the Raging Rhinos stormed with an abundance of goals. In the span of only seven minutes, the Raging Rhinos averaged a goal per minute showing no mercy versus a stifled bunch. M-A Piche, as expected would be heavily involved in the onslaught. The lanky forward collected five goals including four in the second period alone. The Raging Rhinos also had G.Vouloumanos hit the net with three tallies while J.Zannis scored twice with the game’s opening and closing goal. It wasn’t a result the Spartans expected, but the skill set is there and the goals will surely come in due time.

(8)Black Venom vs Fat Cats(3)

Black Venom roll past Fat Cats

This may not have been the clearest night for a declaration of who the Fat Cats will be, at least for what happened in the first period. The Black Venom came out flying posting five goals and the game was already out of reach with plenty of hockey left over. B.Deslauriers and J.Vinet contributed in a big way combining for seven points in that period alone. Deslauriers completed his hat trick by the third period while J.Vinet went on to collect his fifth point of the game. The Fat Cats didn’t like the way things went for most of the night expect for maybe the last four minutes where they strung together three straight markers.

(4)RBK Knights vs Primetime(5) O.T

G.Skafidas OT winner rescues Primetime after bad third period

Primetime wasn’t too pleased with the way the third period ended but that all got forgotten when G.Skafidas buried the overtime winner. The RBK Knights never called it quits scoring two late shorthanded goals by A.Papazian and S.Burrell. And while that seemed more than enough for a spark, the journey only lasted so long. Both sides couldn’t have played a more even match trading the same amount of goals in every frame. Primetime did have the advantage by remaining discipline and spending no time in the penalty box unlike the RBK Knights who had to kill off three of four penalties. G.Chountalos was just added to his team and made a huge impact as the slick forward produced four points leaving a good impression.

(6)HC Inter vs Horsemen (7) O.T

Horsemen out-gun HC Inter in wild 7-6 win

If both teams enjoy scoring goals then they got exactly what they wanted on Wednesday night. It almost seemed like it was going to come down to who shot last in order to win the game. The Horsemen did have the final say courtesy of an overtime power play opportunity. Already with three points during the game, T.Mader ended the night just two minutes into the sudden death frame. B.Rubino was the only Horsemen to score twice. The steady defenseman notched his second on the power play as part of a three point effort. As for the HC Inter, only three players found the back of the net. M.Dalpe, D.Crivello and P-L Poirier each scored twice in the loss.

(1)United Arms vs Hellfish(4)

Power play helps Hellfish get the better of United Arms

Riding two power play goals, the Hellfish got the start they wanted in a 4-1 win over the United Arms. F.Benhamidi opened the scoring and struck once with the man advantage to help provide a two goal cushion after two frames. The Hellfish also got a clutch performance by M.Chartrand sparking three points and B.Verducci who denied all but one goal. The United Arms had their chances during the game especially with the man advantage but capitalized only once courtesy of N.Tonikian while unable to kill off only two penalties taken. It was a battle of the special teams that may have made the difference in this contest.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to George Chountalos of Primetime. In his first game with the club, the right handed sniper produced four out of a possible five points to help his team in a tight battle versus the RBK Knights.

(3)Smooth Sailors vs Communists (4)

J.P Blais, McCann score two goals apiece as Communists edge Sailors

It’s only the first game of the season and the Communists showed plenty of resilience in their close 4-3 win over the Smooth Sailors. J.Provost-Blais scored twice including the equalizer and the go ahead marker while J-P McCann did the same with two quick second period goals. Neither side was able to get on board up until the nine minute mark of the second period. The Communists cracked the barrier taking a 2-0 lead but conceded the next three with the help of J.Palmitano’s two tallies. Unable to protect their slight margin, the Smoot Sailors saw the game take another turn with just four minutes remaining. It was at that moment that J.P Provost-Blais came to the rescue bagging two very quick goals only 13 seconds apart. A.Grieco and J.Vrettis had their hands full but did a splendid job keeping their clubs in it. J.Vrettis got credited the win over his counterpart as both net minders faced 23 shots each.

(3)Bramabulls vs Capitals(4) S.O

P.Bibeau shines in thriller shootout win over Bramabulls

What a night for P.Bibeau and his teammates. The Capitals managed to pull a complete effort out of their bag of tricks in Tuesday night’s 4-3 shootout victory over one of the division’s elite clubs, the Bramabulls. After trailing 1-0 heading into the second period, P.Bibeau decided that it was time for himself and the Capitals to get involved. Bibeau notched two unanswered goals to carry a 2-1 lead after two frames. But the lead would only last so long. The Bramabulls also had a spark plug emerge as S.Sacco riffled his second to level the game early in the frame. The two teams were unable to score the rest of the way including the sudden death overtime. With only a shootout left over, both captains sent some of their finest players to get the job done. It was only fitting that P.Bibeau and S.Sacco would be part of the arsenal as both players came through once more providing key goals. The difference however was the extra tally by M.Tremblay, who came in with a hard low wrist shot to beat G.Follano and give the Capitals the win. The Capitals couldn’t have asked for a better game versus an established hockey team with many young promising players to their lineup.

(4)Smoot Sailors vs Legacy(2)

Rested Legacy fall short in season debut

The conditions seemed to be fine for Legacy taking on the Smoot Sailors who just came off a heartfelt loss versus the Communists. Despite playing an hour earlier, the legs were working on all cylinders. The Smooth Sailors built a 3-0 lead and didn’t concede their first goal up until the mid way mark of the third period. A.Grieco faced nearly 20 shots till that point and was a vital reason why his club played with a comfortable lead. Four different players scored in the victory that included C.Lato’s winner by the four minute mark of the third period. J.Palmitano just came off a two goal game and added to his total accumulating three more points. It wasn’t the start they wanted but Legacy know that missing key pieces didn’t help their cause.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Pat Bibeau of the Capitals. The skilled defenseman did plenty providing two goals and a shootout marker to help the Capitals take the season opener versus the Bramabulls.

(7)Ultimate Hockey vs United Armenians(1)

Ultimate Hockey roll over Arms in 7-1 rout

It wasn’t for a lack of trying or competing, but a short bench for the United Armenians standard just won’t cut it. The Ultimate Hockey did what they do best and that is to out run you every time there is a loose ball to win. Despite the seven goals that went in, many had to come fromm the outside. The United Armenians protected their slot area well and did a good overall job with their coverage but couldn’t get enough ball possession to keep up with quicker side. A.Paul was the only multi goal scorer combining for six points with F.Tremblay, who set up three different teammates. R.Province was thinking about earning a shutout up until J.A Belcher stormed down the left wing to beat the net minder with a hard rising wrist shot. G.Missakian knows that he doesn’t have a choice to get a complete lineup in order to keep up. For now, the United Armenians will take it a week at a time and keep developing learning all the little things required to compete at a very high level.

(5)Red Lite vs HBHA(3)

P.DiGiacomo hailed by teammates after bagging all 5 goals

The Red Lite forward was in unstoppable form riffling all five goals in a close 5-3 win over the HBHA. DiGiacomo’s five-goal haul included a ten minute hat trick in the first period alone, but his most important goal may have come in a shorthanded situation by the four minute mark of the second period. The HBHA missed out on the opportunity and were forced to play down three goals rather than pulling within one. Despite the bad luck, the HBHA did play better as the game progressed netting two straight tallies by N.Pitsikoulis and M.Arkalis. At that point, Red Lite may have felt a little under siege with ten minutes remaining but weren’t to fazed as they managed the clock to their favor. In attempt of tying the game by pulling out A.Bitsakis, it was only fitting that P.DiGiacomo would be the one to feed the empty cage. In the end, the HBHA may have felt disappointed but not too concerned knowing that they gave a power house a real run for their money.

(4)Black Knights vs Team Haiti(0)

Team Haiti stumped by P-O Girouard in shutout loss to Knights

Team Haiti finished the night at the wrong end of a 4-0 shutout by the Black Knights. P-O Girouard made 28 saves for the clean slate victory, while the Team Haiti net minder had a tougher time giving up at least one goal in every period. The Black Knights opened the game with a solid first period producing two goals that included a power play marker by P.Musto. Unable to get back into the game, Team Haiti had to battle through layers of defense before trying to solve the wall in front of them. S.Sacco and M.Lastoria also went on to score for the Black Knights who collected a sixth win in eight starts.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Philippe DiGiacomo of Red Lite. The forward did something remarkable posting all five goals in a 5-3 win over the HBHA.

Monday January 16

K.Dube & M.St-Laurent reunite and work magic in perfect start for Carnage

Add two highly skilled players up front with a solid supporting cast and the results will come. Carnage collected two wins over the 23 rd Hour that saw the dynamic duo between K.Dube and M.St-Laurent involved in every single goal. M.St-Laurent snapped a 1-1 tie late in the opening frame of the first contest to squeeze out a 2-1 win. B.Madonis faced 17 shots allowing only one goal by the 23 rd Hour’s captain P.Salvo. The second encounter was where the explosion of goals happened. It’s already safe to say that K.Dube will challenge for the scoring race after riffling four goals and an assist that had his linemate M.St-Laurent set him up on four occasions. Carnage trailed 3-2 heading into the second frame where they replied with three unanswered goals. A.Kalaydjian bagged the winner and B.Madonis collected a second straight win after facing 36 shots in two games.

(1)23rd Hour vs Carnage(2)

(5)Carnage vs 23 rd Hour(3)

Punisher’s high-tempo offense leads to quick success

When J.Fidrilis and M.Gagnon got to together to assemble this team, players quickly realized that success could be found in a hurry. Its only week one of the regular season and the Punishers are ripping up the court like Lamborghinis on the autobahn. They racked eleven goals in two games against a team that just came off a final weeks ago. C.Gingras is a name that many will get familiar with right away. The lanky number 99 stole the show notching the winner in the opening contest before adding four more tallies by the second game. Venom could have easily taken the first duel dropping a tight contest but weren’t anywhere close by the second match where they came out flat. The Punishers wasted no time producing five first period tallies, and all of a sudden the game was out of reach. B.Deslauriers scored twice in the loss. The only positive for Venom is that J.Vinet and J.Courteau didn’t play in that game. Both players will be an important asset moving forward, especially when facing a team like the Punishers.

Defending champs meet their match, drop both games to new squad Les Yables

Unfamiliar with their opponent, Team X realized almost immediately that they would have a long night ahead of them. Les Yables worked, worked and kept working to out battle their opponent. Despite losing both games, Team X had the first one in their hands carrying a 3-1 lead. But with time winding down, Les Yables decided to turn it up. First, D.Pelletier scored to pull within one, then J.Auclair leveled the game and Les Yables got the momentum they needed to hand Team X a heart breaking loss. After taking an untimely penalty, the newly added squad smelled blood and made sure to capitalize. D.Corbin took advantage of the power play to give his club their first lead of the night. The second contest was just as similar to the way the first one ended. Les Yables continued the same way sparking three first period goals while doing the same in the second. What makes these results concerning for all opponents is that nobody had to stand out in the wins. In both games, out of their eleven goals scored, no player scored more than once. Adding to that, J-F Simard covers plenty of net and is very difficult to score against. Team X learned this as the night went on frustrated with his net presence. For now, things look promising for Les Yables as they handed the defending champs back to back losses with a brilliant full out effort.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Kevin Dube of Carnage. Already with four goals and two assists in only two games, the Carnage forward merits the honor as player of the night.
