forum Replica Roex . If, as you have already said, you would buy an unparalleled Replica Gucci Handbags, take a good look at that forum and contact the salespeople personally to ask ALL the questions before proceeding to a purchase. And if the answers do not convince you, let it go.Of course, Replica Christian Dior Handbags Travolta apologized and the bad drink is over. At least on his part since he recently presented the Ocala Film Festival in Florida.In short, what is undeniable is that the style of Travolta is very personal and, largely, responsible for its success despite its scandals, so if the actor has chosen Breitling as his favorite Replica Roex Watches, we will not be the others That we deny to Travolta the great personality that transmits its aspect. And it seems that Victoria has managed to go a step further, getting her look and that of Replica Watches are referent, not for the general public, but for other celebrities so the relevance of what they wear is even greater.

(5)SBS Trashers vs Smooth Sailors(4) O.T

P.Manousos OT winner caps thrilling comeback for the Trashers

Trailing 4-2, the SBS Trashers E.Panzera and J.Guerriero scored in the final minutes to tee up P.Manousos's winner in overtime. Even if it's only the first game of the season, the SBS Trashers aren't taking games for granted after missing the playoffs. The message was sent loud and clear-from their leaders to play a little harder in order to get rewarded. Perhaps the Smooth Sailors may have felt in total control by trying to make fancy plays rather than locking the game down. After all, they dominated much of the second period and stretches of the third where the SBS Trashers had no solutions to respond with a goal. Unfortunately for the Smooth Sailors, a bad third period finish set up the stage for a horrible ending to their season debut.

(4)Legends vs United Arms Jr(5)

Pace kicks in third period for United Arms Jr

While all was well for two periods for the Legends, the same couldn't be said for the final frame. Being up 3-2 against a resilient hockey team isn't nearly enough unless you play to their level. The difference was that the United Arms Jr played to win while the Legends played not to lose. For nearly the entire final frame, the United Arms Jr dictated the pace by winning almost every loose ball battle. G.Jerjian scored twice during that span right before H.Jerjian put the final dagger with only two minutes left in the game. K.Kavanan helped set up three goals in the win while M.Paganon was the Legends best player with three points.

(6)JLR Brossard vs Underdogs(7) O.T

Barn burner favours Underdogs

More impressive on how the Underdogs got their goals was that they all came-from different players. By playing really hard, the Underdogs demonstrated their identity with this kind of result. No superstars were needed but an overall collective effort. Maybe the only concern was the amount of goals they gave up but that's easier said than done when playing the JLR Brossard. Unlike their opponents, J.Rochon was the superstar bagging an impressive five tallies out of the six that went in. To his help, Payam Assadi set him up four times while netting a marker. The Underdogs trailed 5-4 entering the third period before taking over with help-from F.Nasser, the captain J.Constantin and W.Aboud, who ended it off with the sudden death winner.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Peter Manousos of the SBS Trashers. Knowing how important a good start top the season is, P.Manousos put the SBS Trashers on the right track with a huge overtime goal.

(2)Fat Cats vs UD Redz(3)

Three second period goals help UD Redz edge the Fat Cats

Three goals in the second period alone gave the UD Redz a lead for good as they sailed past a familiar opponent 3-2 on Wednesday night. A.Ziade and M.Haber scored early in the frame, and H.Awada put his club up late in the same period leaving only a defensive third period to secure the close win. The Fat Cats attempted to level but struggled to penetrate the layers of defensive-from the UD Redz. M.Saint-Laurent finished the night with 26 saves allowing only G.DeMarinis to beat him both times. It wasn't long ago that both these teams met in the final with the UD Redz getting the better of the Fat Cats. If this game is an indication of what's to come, than the Fat Cats will need to overcome the psychological barrier versus a team that's in their heads.

(5)Carnage vs Scorpions (3)

M.Pace hat trick powers Carnage over Scorpions

It's hardly a coincidence that M.Pace did what he did on Wednesday night versus the Scorpions. The hardnosed forward wasted no time reminding his teammates what an important asset he is. Carnage entered the third period tied 3-3 with all three-goal coming-from M.Pace while getting the help of J.Bourlakos setting him up on all three occasions. And while his output was significant for the win, perhaps the biggest goal came-from M.Pontarelli, who snapped the tie just past the mid way mark of the third period. F.Pace went on to secure the win on a power play goal, and B.Madonis was flawless for nearly two full periods between the pipes for Carnage.

(4)Fat Roy vs Mighty Drunks(6)

Mighty Drunks catch fire with two big third period goals

With the game going back and forth, P.Chartier and M.Desrosiers provided the offense down the stretch for the Mighty Drunks in their close 6-4 win over Fat Roy. Both sides didn't play their best defensive game, and if it wasn't for O.Caillet taking care of the cage for the Mighty Drunks, this contest would have had a different outcome. Caillet was absolutely brilliant, especially in the second period where Fat Roy had a ton of chances to score. P.Elizardo did figure him out twice during that span but the Mighty Drunks still managed to escape the period up 3-2.Y.Dube showed no signs of rust providing two goals and a helper for the victory.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marco Pace of Carnage. By providing three straight goals, Carnage was able to down the Scorpions to jump start the season on a high note.

Les Immigrant edge defending champs Chic Choc early before settling for split

Les Immigrant goaltender R.Ricaurte stopped all 18 shots he faced through regulation, and A.Addante along with A.Daghlian each scored in the shootout to provide an early season win. Neither side could have asked for a better performance-from their net minders. Despite the scoreless tie, the game did not lack excitement with both goaltenders stealing the show. Unhappy with the way things ended, Chic Choc had higher expectations heading into the second match. This time they found a way to generate more quality chances resulting in two goals per period. The turning point occurred in the final frame when Y.Belkassem scored to level the game at three goals apiece. Then, only a minute later, E.Gacem put the Chic Choc in front with his second and F.Peloquin made sure that nothing was going by him with half a period remaining. Both games were so evenly matched that a split did justice for the two sides.

(4)Chic Choc vs Les Immigrant(3)

Dragons earn extra points in tight challenge with Yellow T-Shirts

With the first game favouring the Dragons 2-1 on a pair of slap shots-from G.DeMarinis and D.Gagnon, the second encounter needed the entire distance for the Yellow T-shirts to even the score. The holiday break showed signs of rust but both sides did an overall fine job keeping the games close. Pedram Assadi was huge in the opener making a few quality saves limiting the Yellow T-Shirts to only one goal. However, the Yellow T-Shirts felt it was only a question of time for their offense to kick into gear. And even though they broke out with three goals, it still wasn't enough to settle it in regulation time. This contest needed a shootout courtesy of two markers along with a flawless performance by M.Trivisonno. T.Bergomi, despite being out of action for a very long period, didn't seem to miss a beat for the Yellow T-Shirts as the sound defenseman provided all three points in the win. On the other end of the court, D.Gagnon was the Dragons best player, also as a defenseman accumulating a total of three goals in both games.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to David Gagnon of the Dragons. After collecting the game winner in the first game versus the Yellow T-Shirts, D.Gagnon gave the Dragons every chance possible for the sweep by adding two more in the second contest.

Legacy edges rival Armadillos in shootout to claim third straight title

In an entertaining final featuring two of the top teams of the division, Legacy made that one single play that separated the two sides. It was Payam Assadi's last shootout attempt along with F.Baratta's three consecutive saves that provided the victory and ultimately the championship. The night began with a bang for Legacy dominating the first period with five goals thanks to a G.Pisanelli hat trick. By finding themselves in such a deep hole, the Armadillos had only game two to focus on. The response was definitely a heavy one, with the Armadillos completely dominating the ensuing match. P.Lapointe opened the scoring right before K.Koutsogiannopoulos blasted a rocket giving F.Baratta no chance. With that 2-0 lead after one period, the Armadillos felt confident enough that a game three was on the horizon. Still, the night was-from being over for the two clubs leaving all but a twelve minute game and possibly some change to decide a winner. And perhaps as expected by many, neither side was able to edge out one another during that span. The game ended in a 2-2 tie leaving all but a dreaded breakaway competition. In the shootout, F.Baratta was brilliant keeping Legacy alive until Payam Assadi put the series to rest with his famous back hand move. On behalf of HockeyBalle.com, congratulations go out to George Panagiotopoulos and Legacy for claiming their third straight title.

(8)JLR Brossard vs Smooth Sailors(7) Game 1

JLR Brossard J.Pantelis jolts Smooth Sailors with first period hat trick

J.Pantelis was more relived that his team got the job done rather than posting a first period hat trick along with an assist. For the JLR Brossard, it was all about getting the victory. But sometimes winning a big hockey game doesn't always feel the way it's prepped up to be. This contest was an example of that with the JLR Brossard nearly squandering a massive lead before it was said and done. Down 8-3 heading into the third period, the Smooth Sailors decided to pick it up and almost evened the score if it wasn't for the clock to run out of time. Only a few more seconds was perhaps needed for this game to head into a shootout considering how dominant the Smooth Sailors were throughout the entire period. Despite the loss, the Smooth Sailors felt confident the way things ended and will look to apply their momentum into game two like they did only a week ago versus the Raging Rhinos.

(6)Smooth Sailors vs JLR Brossard(4) Game 2

Smooth Sailors rally to even series

Marco Diaco scored the go ahead goal at the 8:30 mark of the third period, and the Smooth Sailors rallied-from two down to beat the JLR Brossard 6-4 and tie the series at one game apiece. The comeback began early in the third period in large part due to the captain's sheer determination. J.Palmitano notched two quick goals, both with the help of M.Testolina before setting up his most valued line mate late in the match. Looking back, the JLR Brossard had to be wondering on how they couldn't close out the series, especially being up 4-2 with only one period remaining. After missing game one, G.Pisanelli added some fuel for the JLR Brossard by netting three out of his clubs four goals. With the series now tied, both sides focused on how to approach their most important fifteen minutes and possibly more in a game three do or die match up.

(2)JLR Brossard vs Smooth Sailors(4) Game 3

Captain J.Palmitano comes through in the clutch, Smooth Sailors celebrate as champions

There was no doubt that J.Palmitano was the best player out there for the two sides in the most important fifteen minutes of hockey. The captain used two precise wrist shots to find the back of the net while setting up both M.Testolina and Marco Diaco to stamp out the series with the JLR Brossard. The Smooth Sailors thought they had it wrapped up on a 2-0 lead with only four minutes left on the clock. It took only three minutes-from that point on that Payam Assadi fed G.Pisanelli and Joe DeStefano to level the contest at two goals apiece leaving only a minute in the game. Surely, both sides figured this was going into a five minute sudden death period. But when considering how potent the offense is from-both clubs, any shot at any given moment can turn the tides. Twenty seconds was all that it took-from the face off when M.Testolina found himself alone to riffle a one timer giving no chance to Pedram Assadi. Then, by grinding it out in the corner to waste valuable time, J.Palmitano fed Marco Diaco, who buried his one timer with no traffic around him. When looking back, both teams knew the circumstances going in with the mindset of playing desperate. Every player had the confidence and contributed in a big way with so much on the line. Nobody had to do anything special except for their job which ultimately got both these teams this far. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Joey Palmitano and the Smooth Sailors for capturing the E Thursday division title.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joey Palmitano of the Smooth Sailors. Who better than your captain to lead the way.The right handed sniper went on a scoring rampage accumulating two goals in each game that gave him a total of eleven points during the entire series.

(8)Underdogs vs Fat Cats(5) Game 1

Late push not enough as Underdogs down Fat Cats

Getting the ball rolling by the third period just wasn't good enough for the Fat Cats. This game was arguably decided by the second period where the Underdogs outplayed and out battled their opponent for a 5-3 lead. Then, just to make matters worse, M-A Haber notched his second early in the third period with a deflating goal. Despite the bad sequence of event, the Fat Cats weren't throwing the towel just yet. G.Bampos and M.Elfassy did respond with back to back tallies to pull their club within one. However, time was running out and the Fat Cats were forced to pull G.Sangiovanni for the extra attacker only to see two empty net goals go against them. The win also came with the help of E.Salhany's two markers that included back to back tallies at key moments of the game.

(4)Fat Cats vs Underdogs (6) S.O Game 2

Underdogs rally to stun Fat Cats and claim F1 division title

Up 4-2 after two periods, the Fat Cats seemed destined to even the series with the Underdogs. But being up against a resilient hockey team like the Underdogs, nothing is finished until the final buzzer rings. The Fat Cats thought they had their opponent on the ropes until a power play goal by E.Salhany and an even strength-marker from N.Zahabi flipped the script. Still, the mission wasn't accomplished yet as a shootout was looming to see if the Fat Cats would extend the series or if the Underdogs could have stamped it on a victory. Often those scenarios come down to a coin toss but the Underdogs felt something special brewing instead. By sending three of their finest players to take the breakaways, E.Salhany rode his hot hand once more while M-A Haber followed up after setting up all four goals during the game. Unfortunately for the Fat Cats, they just couldn't figure out C.Malkoun, who had to deny only two attempts. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Joseph Constantin and the Underdogs for achieving a remarkable feat.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Mark Anthony Haber. The crafty forward had plenty of offensive out put throughout both games. After scoring twice in game one that included the winner, Haber went on to set up all four goals in game two while providing a shootout marker that ultimately sealed the series.

Wednesday December 19(F2 final)

(4)Carnage vs Mighty Drunks(3) Game 1

J.Bourlakos shorthanded goal holds up for Carnage

Rather than tying the game with a power play opportunity, the Mighty Drunks dug themselves deeper and ultimately paid the price in game 1. J.Bourlakos was clutch on two occasions for Carnage in the final fifteen minutes of play. First, he set up M.Pace to snap a 2-2 tie and then was able to double the lead with a man short. The Mighty Drunks managed to jump ahead twice during the match and only found themselves trailing when Pace struck early in the third period for his second of the game. Y.Dube scored twice in the loss while J-P.Bertrand scored once and collected an assist. With an hour to figure out what went wrong, the Mighty Drunks looked to correct some of their mistakes heading into game two.

(2)Mighty Drunks vs Carnage (3) Game 2

Mighty Drunks repeat woes-from game 1, Carnage crowned champs

Maybe it's easier said than done but the Mighty Drunks couldn't avoid what happened to them in game two like in the previous encounter.  Twice they led like in the earlier meeting, and twice they gave up a third period shorthanded goal that stood for the winner. A golden opportunity towards the late stages of the game turned instantly into a nightmare for the Mighty Drunks. M.Pace scored shorthanded handed with less than two minutes remaining on the clock and Carnage bled out the clock en route to a wild victory. Entering the series, the Mighty Drunks understood that one of their main focuses was to try and slow down M.Pace. And while that's sounds like a reasonable task, some players are just that hard to contain. M.Pace was clearly vital in both wins scoring twice in game one and once in this contest that came in an extraordinary circumstance. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Fabio Pace and the rest of Carnage for getting it done

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marco Pace of Carnage. In a battle that could have easily gone either way, M.Pace was clutch providing three big goals at very crucial times during the series.

(5)GK vs River Rats(3) Game 1

GK hold on to beat River Rats

In what was arguably the single best game of the season so far, the GK took it late in the contest to capture the win. There were breathtaking goals, plenty of scoring chances and heart stopping close calls in the final moments encased inside a breakneck pace sometimes seen at this level of a game. The River Rats, despite tying the game late courtesy of M.DeTorre found themselves immediately playing-from behind only seconds after the equalising goal. P.Genereaux came to rescue the GK right before J.Bradley secured all doubts. The win came with scoring efforts-from five different players while the River Rats saw M.Crialese do most of the damage with a pair of markers. The result may come as a disappointment, but the River Rats will look to take positives knowing that the game could have gone either way.

(0)River Rats vs GK(2) Game 2

Y.Labonte's third period goal secures Premier division title for GK

It was a third period goal-from Y.Labonte that propelled the Gk to a 2-0 victory over the River Rats. Prior to that moment, both sides had their fair share of chances and enough shots to crack the barrier. And with the urgency lying on the River Rats backs, they just couldn't get their first. Props go to the GK defence and goaltender for keeping a clean score sheet versus a lethal River Rats hockey team. It's not often the River Rats go empty handed in a hockey game. Once Labonte opened the scoring, the pressure fell on everyone's shoulders to answerer back. Unfortunately for the River Rats, they kept hitting a wall and never got to the GK's net minder. K.Kuczmarski set up Labonte's winner and  J. Bradley summed up the series by feeding an empty cage. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Dahn Nguyen and the rest of the GK for capturing the Premier division title.

(2)Capitals vs Punishers (3) Game 1

P.Karvouriaris two late goals lift Punishers to command series lead

P.Karvouriaris scored two late goals, including the winner with less than two minutes remaining to help position the Punishers in the right direction. As expected, throughout the entire match, this contest remained close with both sides playing tentative in hopes of avoiding mistakes. If there was ever a time for your best players to show up, the Punishers definitely got it from their star-forward. P.Karvouriaris showed once again what an offensive threat he his. Unfortunately for the Capitals, they just couldn't hold him off long enough which now has them facing a huge hurdle if they plan on bouncing back.

(2)Punishers vs Capitals(1) S.O Game 2

A.Bitsakis excels in net, Punishers crowned winners of D Tuesday division

For a second straight game, the Punishers edged out the Capitals to claim the D Tuesday division championship. When the teams could not be separated after regulation time with a score of 1-1, the game moved into a penalty shootout where the Capitals missed on all three tries to hand the title to the Punishers. C.Gingras scored the lone goal during the breakaways while A.Bitsakis was heavily relied on to deny all three attempts. If there is one area that the Capitals will be looking back on, was their inability to capitalise with the man advantage. The Punishers played it risky visiting the penalty box several times but managed to kill it off due to their positioning and net minder making the difference. The Capitals did eventually tie the game fairly late thanks to M-A Morin. By then, both teams seemed tired and waited to try their luck in a shootout. Even though both goalies weren't the issue with C.Fortin occupying the net for the Capitals, something had to give. With that one goal coming-from C.Gingras, the Punishers were able to take it in the end. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to John Fidrilis and the Punishers for capturing the D Tuesday division title.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Alex Bitsakis of the Punishers. The net minder couldn't have played a better series allowing only three goals in two games versus a high octane offense. In addition to all that, Bitsakis stopped all three shootout attempts to help lead his club to a championship.

Monday December 17(Final)

Chic Choc captures championship in shootout versus Degenerates

Chic Choc captured a victorious run on Monday night by going the ultimate distance to edge out the Degenerates. The loss stung the Degenerates who felt they deserved better considering how well they played the final two games. The problem however took place between the pipes. F.Peloquin was exceptional and arguably the reason why his club prevailed in the end. The Chic Choc were clearly better in the first encounter but seemed to lose their energy level as the night went on. It was by the second game that the Degenerates took over with loads of ball possession that resulted in plenty scoring chances. After levelling the series with a 3-1 score, twelve minutes and possibly a shootout was all that was left for the two sides in order to succeed. The series was so extremely close that a twelve minute period wasn't enough. Unfortunately, it came down to the dreaded penalty shots in order to claim a winner. Out of the six combined attempts, M.Ethier had the final say when he faked out P.Assadi. F.Peloquin continued-from where he left off stopping all three breakaways his way. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out o Frederick Peloquin and the Chic Choc for winning the 4vs4 division.

(1)Shockers vs Lynx(4) Game 1

Lynx ride 2 power play goals to grab series lead

With the special teams being a significant part of hockey, the Lynx were able to capitalise on their chances while the Shockers went empty handed on their lone occasion. The Lynx managed to kill off a two minute minor penalty late in the first period to keep the game levelled at one goal apiece. It was by the second frame that the wheels were in motion for the Lynx. On their two chances, P.Stroubakis and J.Lang each scored with the help of Y.Vanasse. Both goals came with crisp passes and in tune plays giving almost no chance for the Shockers defence and net minder. That sequence provided the Lynx a 3-1 lead heading into the third period where they bared down and shut the door the rest of the way. S.Catalano had the difficult task of limiting the Shockers to only one goal on 30 shots but managed to keep the goal scoring low courtesy of his brilliant play in net.

(2)Lynx vs Shockers (6) Game 2

Shockers offense kicks into motion after dry game 1

No matter how well the Lynx played the Shockers in the previous game by limiting them to only one goal they just couldn't do it for a second straight game. Good teams that carry plenty of punch up front may have a dry spell here and there but rarely for two consecutive games. The Shockers eventually broke out by the second period and carried the momentum until the early stages of the final frame where they strung four unanswered goals to take command of the match.And who better than some of their big guns to get the ball rolling. C.DeBonis and J.Blunt each scored twice combining for seven points while J.Blackman had his hand in the Shockers first three markers to help stage a comeback in the series. The Lynx felt they played a tight overall game except for a short span that ultimately hurt them in the end.

(3)Shockers vs Lynx(0) Game 3

Shockers crowned winners on M.Harrison shutout

The Shockers celebrated the E Sunday championship, and they did it thanks to an extremely typical methodical win against the Lynx. M.Harrison was brilliant once again stopping every ball his way and M.Blackman was the mastermind behind setting up J.Blunt and P-J Gauthier for a 2-0 lead. From -the beginning of game 2, the Shockers were successful closing out and wearing down the Lynx scorers. Even though the Lynx didn't get the help they needed, plenty has to do with the Shockers fantastic effort. By overcoming a 1-0 series deficit with two solid games, the Shockers felt worthy of what they achieved in the end. On behalf of HockeyBalle.com, congratulations go out to Matthew Blackman and the rest of his teammates for capturing the big prize.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Mike Harrison of the Shockers. With his team in desperate need of two straight wins, M.Harrision did not disappoint with two incredible performances that saw the net minder allow only one goal.

(7)The Peters vs HBHA(2) Game 1

The Peters strike first with dominant game 1 win over HBHA

The Peters jumped ahead in their opening game versus the HBHA on Friday night. While the game started close, a late second period power play goal helped the Peters pull away and win comfortably. The HBHA had missed on a golden chance to level the game at three goals apiece on their power play, instead J.Morina struck shorthanded creating a two goal gap heading into the third and final period. That goal clearly deflated the HBHA, who had no more bite in their game surrendering three more markers. Three players paired goals in the win coming-from R.Placentino, M.Crialese and by the captain J.Morina , who went on to add two assists.

 (5)HBHA vs The Peters(3) Game 2

C.Stavriadis helps HBHA bounce back to even the series

J.Kontitsis , C.Stavriadis and the rest of the HBHA remained cool after a forgettable defeat. Stavriadis made 31 saves, his captain J.Kontitsis opened and closed the scoring and the HBHA bounced right back into the series to force a mini game. The focus entering the contest was to pick one another up and play close as a team like they have been doing for the longest of time. The HBHA simply played to their strength that resulted in a perfect result. The Peters only got on board by the third period when the game was already put out of reach. Prior to that point, the HBHA scored three times while applying a determined man on man defensive style. With game three looming only minutes away, both sides took the time to analyse what was ahead of them knowing that it was now or never.

(5)The Peters vs HBHA(0) Game 3

Quick start pays dividends, Peters pull away to glory

It seemed like the Peters had all the answers on what to do in a short period of time. After getting an early goal, every single player felt that they weren't going to be denied. Once again, J.Morina made an impact, this time scoring the Peters second and fourth goal of the game. At no point did the HBHA show any sort of push back. By giving up two early goals and an eventual power play marker, the writing was already on the wall. The victory capped a near perfect season for the Peters by not only finishing first in the regular season but by achieving their ultimate goal. The players felt throughout the season that this was a championship group, and by getting the final reward was just the icing on the cake. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Johnny Morina and the Peters for capturing the Masters 35+ division.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Johnny Morina of the Peters. Being a captain bears lots of responsibly and decision making. J.Morina was influential in both games behind the bench and on the court where he collected a total of four goals and two assists to help carry his club to the finish line.

(5)GK vs River Rats(3) Game 1

GK hold on to beat River Rats

In what was arguably the single best game of the season so far, the GK took it late in the contest to capture the win. There were breathtaking goals, plenty of scoring chances and heart stopping close calls in the final moments encased inside a breakneck pace sometimes seen at this level of a game. The River Rats, despite tying the game late courtesy of M.DeTorre found themselves immediately playing-from behind only seconds after the equalising goal. P.Genereaux came to rescue the GK right before J.Bradley secured all doubts. The win came with scoring efforts-from five different players while the River Rats saw M.Crialese do most of the damage with a pair of markers. The result may come as a disappointment, but the River Rats will look to take positives knowing that the game could have gone either way.

Y.Labonte's third period goal secures Premier division title for GK

It was a third period goal-from Y.Labonte that propelled the Gk to a 2-0 victory over the River Rats. Prior to that moment, both sides had their fair share of chances and enough shots to crack the barrier. And with the urgency lying on the River Rats backs, they just couldn't get their first. Props go to the GK defence and goaltender for keeping a clean score sheet versus a lethal River Rats hockey team. It's not often the River Rats go empty handed in a hockey game. Once Labonte opened the scoring, the pressure fell on everyone's shoulders to answerer back. Unfortunately for the River Rats, they kept hitting a wall and never got to the GK's net minder. K.Kuczmarski set up Labonte's winner and  J. Bradley summed up the series by feeding an empty cage. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Dahn Nguyen and the rest of the GK for capturing the Premier division title.
