(7)Renceur vs Scorpions(3) E1
If tonight’s game is any indication of what looms ahead then Renceur will be in full form heading into the playoffs. N.Gilbert didn’t miss a beat by generating three goals for his hat trick and J.Quesnel-Vinet notched the only first period tally before adding his second late in the closing instances of period number two. With the regular season coming to an end, the Scorpions will need to start fresh and go with the notion of trying to get that first goal to put immediate pressure on their opponents.
(2)Chiefs vs Fat Roy(1) E1
There isn’t any secret formula as the Chiefs kept it simple once more to earn the result. The back bone of the club S.Pare stopped all but one third period goal and the Chiefs struck just enough times to edge their rival opponent. A.Jalilvand opened the scoring followed with an early second period goal from P.Santullo before J.Pantelis spoiled the shut out mid way mark of the third period.

This concludes the E1 Thursday division regular season. The Stealth Assassins and the Scorpions will have to battle it out to see who gets the Chiefs in the semi finals while Renceur will look for some pay back as they face off against Fat Roy in their semi final match up.

(8)French Connection vs Street Ballers(4) E2
It took all but one short sequence for the French Connection as they frustrate the Street Ballers in a double up win. Deadlocked at three goals a piece, the French Connection surged five goals as of the 11:42 minute mark of the third period that saw O.Valiquette score twice to complete his hat trick. P.Hargreaves was also a force producing two goals and three helpers. One thing that worked well for the Street Ballers was their five man unit where they netted three out of their four goals.
(4)Seals vs Carnage(5) E2
It hasn’t been easy for F.Pace and his club but tonight the boys will be smiling after a close win over the Seals. A.Passarelli did most of the ground work bagging three goals and a helper but it was D.Gentile’s very late tally that sent Carnage over the top. If there was one thorn in the tight win was the brilliant display of J.Quesnel-Vinet who notched all four goals for the Seals.
(10)JAC Motoport vs Les Raymonds(3) E2
With only one loss after ten games, the JAC Motosport look to achieve greater heights in the playoffs. It may not have been the best team to prepare against but the JAC Motosport still found a way to generate ten goals and will look to produce plenty more moving forward. E.Charbonneau and A.Beauchamp each had hat tricks, and A.Teoli along with A.Nadan-Vendette took care of the balance netting two goals a piece.
(10)Assurance Evolution vs Dirty Boys(12) E2
When two teams don’t feel like running, odd results such as this one happen time to time. The Dirty Boys needed the last minute of the game riffling two big goals in order to take the contest. Leading to that point, M.Chenier and M.Mavroudis competed for the most goals notching four a piece in the win while Y.Gourde did the same that saw M.Dagenias just behind him posting a hat trick for Assurance Evolution.

The regular season will end when Carnage face off against the 23rd Hour. After that match up is completed, the top ten seeds will participate in the playoffs that will feature the first round matches between seeds number 10 vs 7 and 8 vs 9.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Albe Passarelli of Carnage. Passarelli owned the first period producing three points while completing his hat trick by the third period giving his club a close 5-4 win over the Seals.

(4)Brewers vs Ducks(5)
He did it alone for one period but it wasn’t good enough as the Brewers drop a close battle versus the Ducks. T.Fernando single handily put the Brewers up 3-1 after one period posting all three goals before things started to shift in one direction. The Ducks slowly overcame the situation by winning the next two frames. A.Carvajal, captain of the Ducks started the comeback netting back to back second period tallies before D.Lonardi bagged his second in the third for the winner.
(6)Steelers vs Punishers(10)
They’ve been coming in bunches game in and game out as the Punishers struck ten times in quest of their perfect season. The Steelers didn’t go down easy by putting up a good battle for well over two periods before the Punishers ran away with the contest. C.Stamadianos hurt his opponents twice with short handed markers and A.Andreadakis had the most tallies riffling a hat trick.
(6)Kennedy Crew vs NWV(5)
Giving up two short handed goals in a close loss won’t sit well for the NWV. With the game on the line, M.Nalbandian sent a sinking feeling to his opponents after posting a third period short handed marker holding up as the game winner .Nobody scored more than once in the win but G.Chountalos did put together another huge performance making five goals happen.
(5)Whalers vs Chaos(6)
Threes a charm for A.Caldwell and Chaos as they captured a must needed win to stay alive for a playoff spot. Caldwell tallied half of his team’s goals and added an assist to finish with four points while J-F Verreault took the load for the Whalers by also posting a hat trick. Chaos only took over the contest by the third period where they won the frame 3-1 that saw B.Vickers set up J.Quevillon for the winner.
(6)Primetime vs Purple Cobras(9)
Z.Wahid and O.Wahid registered two goals each and the Purple Cobras defeated Primetime to share an equal record in the standings. Once the Purple Cobras led, there was no turning back despite Primetimes hard fought efforts to try and get back into the match. L.Primiani notched the first goal of the night in a short handed situation which may have been an early turning point for the Purple Cobras.
(5)Infiniti Park Avenue vs Fat Cats(4)
It was another night of great goals for E.Girouard as the veteran sniper puts four behind G.Sangiovanni. The Fat Cats failed to kill six minutes of hockey where E.Girouard continued his progress bagging two more goals proving to make the whole difference. A.Stamiris notched the other tally short handed and S.Robineault had another solid night setting up three goals.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Alex Caldwell of Chaos. If not for his three goals and one assist, Chaos would have found themselves in a deeper hole.

Sunday March 22
(5)Bijoux vs 1 Timer(4) S.O
S.Vitali and P.Guanatte scored two goals each to help lift Bijoux over the 1 Timer. Vitali, not only netted two tallies but captured the win as the lone shootout goal scorer for both sides. Bijoux had a chance to win the match in regulation time but that changed when M.Dufort netted his second with only 15 seconds remaining. P-A Surprenant also had a two goal night for the 1 Timer receiving feeds from J.Guye-Perrault.
(4)United Armenians vs Zeus(5) O.T
C.Stamadianos was fairly quiet all night long but made the most noise after netting the games lone shootout marker. On four occasions, Zeus had to even the score and got a two goal game from M.Gagnon while J.Pereira was able to notch the equaliser. The United Armenians hoped for a better fate but will take the point anyway. D.Charbonneau tallied twice in the loss while his teammate N.Macrozonaris finished with a two point night.
(8)Butchers vs Les Bakaloo(2)
The Butchers scored in bunches in blowing out Les Bakaloo 8-2 on Sunday night.

C.Gingras led in the points department feeding three teammates while scoring late in the second period and N.Mackeen denied just over 20 shots to earn the victory in nets.
(4)Bramabulls vs HC Inter(3)
It took only one period of domination for the Bramabulls to hang on to a nail biting victory. T.Hadjina bagged two out of his clubs four goals in the first period where the Bramabulls looked like they were headed for an easy win. The tides started to change in the third period where M.Crivello and M.Dalpe each scored in a short span reducing the margin by only one. HC Inter had well over eight minutes to tie the game but G.Follano and the Bramabulls were able to tighten up and hang on to the close victory.
(4)Untouchables vs Lounge(2)
J-F Huppe and S.Trudel each had big nights as the Untouchables continue their quest for a fine season. Both players combined well clicking for six points that saw Huppe riffle back to back tallies putting the Untouchables up by two. The first period did belong to Lounge 5 as they won the frame 2-1 but that was all the offence they got by A.Vivas who stopped close to 40 shots.
(6)Park Avenue Legacy vs Red Nose(4)
Unhappy with their last couple of games, the Park Avenue Legacy made it a point to bounce back versus Red Nose. It showed early on how prepared they were bagging three unanswered goals to gain control of the contest. Balance was key as many chipped away with points that saw only G.Chountalos score twice. The Red Nose would have liked to have a full roster but managed to put up a good fight anyway, especially from M.Latreille who scored once while adding a helper.
(8)Red Vipers vs Hulkamania(4)
For a second time this season, the Red Vipers smoke Hulkamania. J.Laviolette silenced his opponents early on posting three straight goals. D.Pineiros duplicated his teammates efforts bagging a hat trick as well and J.Dumouchel was able to set up three consecutive tallies. It’s not often that he finds the back of the net, but A.Belcher did it twice for Hulkamania on this night while P.Arkalis was the most productive with three points.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Simon Vitali of Bijoux. The consistent forward struck twice and added the lone shootout marker giving his club the extra points over the 1 Timer.

2015 Winter Classic, F Division

The night’s event began with four skills competition featuring players representing the F Wednesday night division. The competition began to see who would have the most precise shot. Terron Fernando made the Brewers proud winning a tie breaker against Bobby Skafidais hitting four targets in only seven attempts. The second competition of the night involved all four goaltenders to see who would deny the most shots towards them. Amazingly enough, veteran net minder Scott Sauk allowed only one goal on 30 attempts. The winner of that event for the player went to Amit Patel, another Brewers representative that was able to riffle three out of five attempts. The third event was to see who would have bragging rights for the hardest shot. While most of the players averaged speeds in the 80’s mph, Jason Rochon brought it to another level blasting a furious 98 mph slap shot which was 10 mph harder than the second player behind him. Finally, the last competition involved the goaltenders once more to see who can flourish on the breakaways. Normally, a forward would have the edge in this contest but Kevin Miraldo did something remarkable scoring three times as the Werewolves d-man and captain merits the honour. As for the net minders, Ben Verducci protected his cage slightly better over his counter parts to win that event.


As for the main event of the night, it wasn’t your typical high scoring affair. Each side showed desperately how much they wanted to win, and contrary to playing an open style game, defence along with exceptional goaltending were determine factors. Team white had the better start winning the opening frame 3-2 with goals from Nick Giannone, Marcello Barbiero and George Lallis. Jason Rochon eventually evened the score late in the second period only to have Manny Mavroudis kill the momentum seconds later. With only one period remaining, Giancarlo Sangiovanni went to work as the Fat Cats net minder made brilliant stops enabling team white to get the better of team black by a final score of 6-4.Team white did have a significant advantage over their opponents. Costa Zafiropoulos crunched the lines together making sharp decisions that only a veteran coach can come up with.

Infiniti Park Avenue forward Jason Rochon along with the Fat Cats net minder Giancarlo Sangiovanni were named most valuable players. Rochon was the only player to score twice while Giancarlo Sangiovanni stood tall stopping difficult scoring chances.

Skill Competition summary:

Most accurate shooter: Terron Fernando, Brewers 4/7 targets
