(9)Blades vs Dragons(1)
While the Dragons didn’t have much to show for, Blades did what they do best. With ball possession for most of the night, the division leaders created plenty of scoring chances resulting in many of goals. E.Girouard led the way posting a hat trick, M.Lastoria riffled a pair and S.Robineault helped set up four different teammates.
(5)Golden Kids vs Brewers(2)
The Golden Kids knew the importance of a lead, and once they got it the Brewers weren’t able to even the score. The Golden Kids seized a pair of power play opportunities resulting in tallies from J-P Cyr and F.Bergeron. J.Bernier got credited the winner with the games lone second period goal, and D.Laurie allowed only one marker for most of the night until C.Charles struck late in the game.
(1)Hellas vs United Arms(4)
After a slow start to the season, the United Arms are slowly starting to find their groove. This result now makes it two in a row for the Arms who controlled most of the night pairing goals in both the second and third frames. N.Macrozonaris’s late second period goal held for the winner and J-F Aumais stood tall in nets allowing only one marker.
(1)Vintage Ottarks vs Mighty Drunks(4)
Still in search for that first win of the season, the Vintage Ottarks had the difficult challenge to face up versus a faster hockey club. The Mighty Drunks opened the scoring late in the first period on a goal from J.Argyropoulos and were able to net two second period tallies leaving almost no hope for their opponents. J.Mandracchia did eventually get the veteran squad on the board but that was the only goal they managed passed A.Mancini.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Olivier Greco of the Might Drunks. His go ahead marker along with an assist was vital for his team in a 4-1 win over the Vintage Ottarks.

(5)Renceur vs Scorpions(2)
As the struggles continue, the Scorpions faced another difficult challenge on Thursday night. They managed to stay within a one goal margin for two periods up until Renceur stormed with three third period tallies. N.Gilbert and J.Quesnel-Vinet each cashed in with a pair and B.Deslauries decided to pass the ball resulting in three assists.
(6)Seals vs Street Ballers(2)
Make it two in a row as the Seals put together back to back victories. Whatever was said after the first period definitely worked for the Seals as they powered five second period tallies to stun their opponents. A.Daher opened the scoring and was able to notch the winner as the only multi goal scorer for his club. S.Barbe had the most points scoring once and adding three helpers while his captain and net minder S.Gagnon denied every Street Baller except for Y.Dube who beat him twice.
(12)French Connection vs Les Raymonds(2)
O.Valiquette converted on five occasions, captain C.Corneau struck twice, J.Levesque set up five tallies and the French Connection had no problems defeating Les Raymonds. The French Connection discouraged their opponents towards the second phase of the match where everything seemed to be going in. Les Raymonds did have something to cheer about when A.Lemieux and S.Hamel scored to beat S.Gagnon.
(5)Brambulls vs Sttealth Assassins (4)
After playing fairly cautious for two periods, each side decided to open it up by the third. The Bramabulls entered the final frame up 2-1 before trading three third period tallies with their opponents. Newly added Marco Diaco made an immediate impact as the power forward participated in all five goals for the Bramabulls that included a pair by the third. The Stealth Assassins chased all game long to even the score, and once they did, they weren’t able to get that much needed tally. L.Mancini and L.Dulcetta shared three points each for the win while N.DeGregorio and J.Rodriguez did the same for the Stealth Assassins.
(5)Chiefs vs Fat Roy(6)
If there’s such a thing as a feel good loss, the Chiefs are glad to capture a point after a tough battle with Fat Roy. Down by three, the Chiefs decided it was time to elevate their game and it showed by storming right back into the match to force extra time. M.DelGaudio hurt the Chiefs early on netting the games first two goals but it was J.Pantelis’s and P.Elizardo’s shootout markers giving the edge to Fat Roy. G.Lallis, J.Levesque and L.Frino each had two points for the win while the Chiefs depended on four different goal scorers.
(6)Snookers vs Stones(2)
They started the season on a high note but its now two games in a row that the Stones struggle. They did however drop the game versus a club that remains undefeated after seven games. The Snookers have shown consistency all season long and tonight was just another example of how things are going well so far. M.Gagnon chipped in with a pair and the Snookers got offence from most of their roster with balance scoring.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marco Diaco of the Bramabulls. The power forward scored a pair of key third period goals in a five point performance to help defeat the Stealth Assassins by a close margin.

Tuesday February 24
(2)Red Lite vs Rated R(4)
A win is always a win, but some do feel better than others. Rated R have plenty to feel good about after doubling up a team like Red Lite. With only one win in six games, Rated R will gain some confidence moving forward especially after putting out a full team effort. Four different players struck to find the back of the net which saw Mr clutch D.Bertrand riffle the most important tally on the power play holding up as the game winner. P.Turturici will like the fact of earning the result in nets after facing just over 30 shots.

Wednesday February 25
(2)Capitals vs Generals(4)
Its seems lately that no one has any solutions on how to contain J.Paradis. The Generals forward put together another impressive performance lifting his club to an eight straight win. After opening the scoring in the first period, J.Paradis looked to put the game away with two quick back breaking goals about a minute apart. The Capitals got on the score sheet late in the second period when C.Valois solved L.Augustin on the power play, and managed to reduce the margin within one but that was all they got by the net minder.
(6)Red Lite vs Hustlers(2)
Apart from an even second period, Red Lite did just enough in the other frames to defeat the Hustlers on Wednesday night. M.Duguay displayed some fine hockey assisting twice and scoring on two occasions that included a big third period power play marker. That goal made the score 4-2 in favour of Red Lite which led to a pair of empty net goals, both coming from N.Vargas-Dias.
(0)All Blacks vs Black Knights(4)
J.Beaudry made a total of 25 saves to help lift the Black Knights over the All Blacks. While he wasn’t the only player to shine, J.Mandracchia powered three goals including a game changing short handed marker by the second period. The Black Knights used a basic formula protecting their lead by not giving up plenty of chances. Quietly in third place, the Black Knights will pose a threat to any opponent if they can keep up at this rate.
(4)Rated R vs Royal Flush(8)
Eight goals are plenty in a hockey game but the Royal Flush needed only three players to find the back of the net. S.Lajeunesse and E.Bastos shared hat tricks while J.Gagne took care of the balance riffling two passed the defenceless net minder. The only thing that worked well for Rated R on this night was that they cashed in three times on their power play. Four different players scored in the losing cause that saw M.Lastoria accumulated the most points with three.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Mathieu Duguay. The Red Lite forward was involved in his clubs first four goals of the game and a major reason why they just got by the Hustlers.

Wednesday February 25
(7)Whalers vs Steelers(5)
Only Three Whalers found the back of the net but it was plenty for a wild 7-5 win over the Steelers. Once again the captain took charge as S.Shorkey scored twice and added two helpers on N.Mode’s tallies. The rest of the scoring belonged to newly added T.Fleury who netted his clubs last three goals for a hat trick. It came a little too late but the Steelers fought hard in the third notching three straight goals to pull within one. S.Karagioules and C.Retsinas helped make the come back happen by posting a pair of markers each.
(4)Buckshots vs Werewolves(6) S.O
M.Mavroudis struck with his second late in the game to even the score for the Buckshots before dropping the contest in a shootout. The Werewolves saw their lead challenged on three occasions and needed a shootout to claim the win thanks to a pair of sweet goals from J.Manteiga and A.Zarzour. It wasn’t an easy result, but it came against last seasons champs as the Werewolves will use this win as confidence moving forward.
(0)Fat Cats vs Punishers(3)
If the Fats Cats could have avoided taking a bunch of penalties, this result may have turned out different. The Punishers had their chances in the second period to grab the lead, instead they opened the scoring by the mid way point of the final frame where C.Gagnon was finally able to break the barrier. M.Goodz doubled the lead moments later, and T.Lauvigne confirmed another win for the Punishers ending the night with an empty net marker. The Fat Cats attempted nearly 30 shots on net and weren’t able get anything passed B.Goodz.
(7)Infiniti/Park Avenue vs Primetime(4)
Infiniti/Park Avenue started strong and finished even better as they downed Primetime 7-4 on Wednesday night. After scoring early in the second period, Y.Gazura felt generous setting up three third period goals. A.Stamiris had a multi goal game for the win while A.Delvasto did the same for Primetime. With only one loss in five games, Pedram Assadi and his troops look to be in solid form so far.
(9)NWV vs Purple Cobras(3)
The first period wasn’t to convincing for NWV, but as the game went on the veteran squad was able to pull away. The game took one direction right away in the second period when C.Menniti scored his first of two on the night. NWV surged with six unanswered goals that saw M.Hadjar net his second and A.Hakim bury a pair less than four minutes apart. Leading to that point, J.Goral was also able to score twice making it four different NWV players with two goals a piece. As for the Purple Cobras, L.Primiani was there best player bagging two out of his clubs three goals.
(3)Chaos vs Ducks(4)
D.Lonardi keeps on making a difference as the quick forward played plenty of minutes participating in all four goals for the Ducks. With only two changes on their bench, the Ducks had to play until the final whistle to earn a difficult win. Lonardi scored twice and was able to set up his captain A.Carvajal along with N.Hairabedian with goals both coming in the second period. Chaos put up a good fight getting a pair of points from there captain M.D’Alessandro and T.Duong only to drop what was a close second period.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Bradley Goodz. Solid goaltending was the reason why the Punishers have yet to drop a game this season.

Tuesday February 24
(2)Smooth Sailors vs Slayers(6)
The Slayers exploded for four goals in the second period and remain as the only undefeated team in the D Tuesday night division. J.Velenosi, J.DelTorto and P.Bibeau each had a goal early in the second period giving the Slayers a 5-0 lead until N.Cordileone finally solved N.Beaudet later in the frame. The Slayers put out a full team game getting efforts from six different goal scorers.
(3)Smackdaddys vs Legacy(1)
It took some time but the Smackdaddys are glad to get in the winning column. Despite being down for most of the night, the Smackdaddys worked hard for their chances and benefited when N.Tsatsaronis scored late in the second period to even the score at one goal a piece. Tsatsaronis didn’t stop there however as the veteran put his club up for the first time in the game with a tally that ultimately stood up as the winner. Legacy aren’t used scoring only once in a hockey game but tonight they had the misfortune of going up against the stellar net minding of M.Dorismond.
(3)Spartans vs Sons of Terrebonne(2)
With overtime looming around the corner, the Spartans avoided the extra time with just over five minutes remaining in the game. Already with an assist on G.Tsolis’s first period goal, M.Revelakis put the Spartans in front and never looked back to squeeze out a tight win over his opponents. G.Chountalos notched the other tally for the victory while S.Landry and J.Tanguy found the back of the net for the Sons of Terrerbonne.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Midwin Dorismond. The Smackdaddy net minder allowed only one goal versus Legacy enabling his club to record their first win of the season.

Monday February 23
(4)Steakfrites vs Armadillos(7)
The two teams entered the third period tied at two, before the Armadillos offence was able to break out in the final frame. P.Koutsogiannopoulos scored the eventual game winner with his first of two on the night. The Armadillos then added one more tally in an empty cage thanks to D.Andrade, who also scored twice. The Armadillos will continue to roll along as they dropped only one contest in five games.
(4)Capitals vs Les Crooners(3)
It took only ten seconds as the Capitals struggled to get passed the Crooners. Despite being down by one late in the third period, the Capitals put together back to back tallies courtesy of M.Champagne and M.Cloutier stunning their opponents with just over five minutes remaining. The Crooners had their best moments in the second period where they won the frame 2-1.M.Corbeil scored on the power play which was later followed with a short handed marker from D.Martel.
(3)Raging Rhinos vs Left Wings(5) S.O
After an evenly matched game, a breakaway competition was left to decide a victor. Each side scored twice in the opening frame, traded second period tallies before going on a scoring drought the rest of the way. No one had more than one point but E.Brady did notch a big short handed tally late in the second period for the Raging Rhinos. With only the net minders left to shine, F.Vigliotti shut the door twice in the shootout while N.Mauro gave up two goals from T.Kyritsis and J.Tzanetakos.
(0)Bramabulls vs Ultimate Blast(0) S.O
Its not often teams play to a scoreless result, but tonight it was the case as this contest belonged to the net minders. J.Beaudry of the Bramabulls along with E.Gabriel of the Ultimate Blast were absolutely brilliant between the pipes, not only shutting the door for three plus periods but able to deny every breakaway challenge in the shootout. J.Beaudry was forced to make an extra save in the shootout due to the Ultimate Blasts minor penalty in overtime.
(2)X-Treme vs Venom(8)
Presently sitting in opposite directions of the standings, Venom went about their business ousting the struggling X-Treme. Apart from Y.Gazura’s two goals, nobody really stood out for Venom as many players chipped away for points. A.Jalilvand notched the winner early in the second period where Venom did most of their damage posting four unanswered goals.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Peter Koutsogiannopoulos. The right handed sniper came to the rescue bagging two important goals in a 7-4 Armadillos win over Steakfrites.

Sunday February 22
(4)United Armenians vs HC Inter(7)
D.Crivello had a night to remember and the HC Inter continue to strive improving to a 3-0 record. Crivello scored once in both the first and second periods before putting the match away posting three third period markers. M.Damiani had a five point game as well producing most of his points as assists. Its only three games into the season but the HC Inter have plenty to feel good about with a goal total of 27 goals for while having allowed only six markers.
(1)District 5 vs Mighty Ducks(11)
Despite having the better start, District 5 were helpless the rest of the way. The Mighty Ducks upped their game as of the mid way point of the opening frame bagging four quick goals. L.Vermette finished the period strong, added his second right away at the beginning of the second period before completing his hat trick by the third. J.Breeze faired well with a pair of markers, and J.Blackman had a decent night allowing only one power play goal from K.Aujla.
(4)Butchers vs Hulkamania(3)
The Butchers started off strong scoring twice in both the first and second frames to hand Hulkamania their third straight loss of the season. The Butchers looked for balance that saw nine different players accumulate points. N.Mackeen was extremely sharp in nets, and although had some difficulty stopping J.Courteau who beat him twice, the young net minder did just enough to earn the win.
(3)Zeus vs Untouchables(9)
A short bench didn’t get in the way of the Untouchables as they still managed nine passed the defenceless net minder. Plenty came off the blade of J.Lesperance-Daoust as the forward tallied four times including goals in every period. While he wasn’t the only one to make an impact, P.Bourret had another productive game, this time scoring twice while adding four helpers.
(2)Lounge 5 vs Bramabulls(10)
It may only be three games into the season but the Bramabulls may have sent a message that they’ll be the team to beat. The first place club lead in most categories and have plenty of attack to cause nightmares for most goaltenders. Often, a good start to any game matters, and even though it was going to be difficult, Lounge 5 dropped an early power play opportunity to strike first by giving up back to back short handed markers. That really hurt their moral as the Bramabulls just fed off the situation never looking back. D.Grasso had the most goals posting a hat trick, and C.Vellucci came next in line bagging two goals.
(2)Les Bakaloo vs Park Avenue Legacy(6)
So far so good for the Park Avenue Legacy as they hand Les Bakaloo a convincing 6-2 loss on Sunday night. As much as this was a one sided affair, Les Bakaloo weren’t aware of the dangers that G.Chountalos poses as the natural sniper owned the first half of the game netting an impressive four goals. With the game already out of reach, each side closed off the night by splitting the final frame 1-1.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to David Crivello of HC Inter. David Crivello made a huge impact netting five out of his clubs seven goals in a 7-4 win over the United Armenians.

(5)Capitals vs Royal Flush(1)

The Capitals worked their special teams scoring once on the power play while adding a short handed marker. E.Vigneault and M.Champagne each had two assists and M.Carmelo got credited the winner after netting a late first period marker.

Wednesday November 19
(7)Generals vs Royal Flush(0)
The Generals were able to put last weeks outcome behind them quickly as they handed the Royal Flush a 7-0 crushing to open their season. J.Bradley had goals in every frame for a hat trick and K.Kuczmarski also notched three tallies while S.Comptant got the other marker. The Royal Flush didn’t have the roster they hoped for and barely got any scoring attempts on M.Gallant who easily earned a shutout.
(6)All Blacks vs Hustlers(3)
After a wild opening period, the All Blacks continued their progress and eventually doubled up the Hustlers. S.Ghilarducci opened and closed the scoring while adding a helper on the game winning tally. The Hustlers had a decent start riffling two first period goals but struggled to get the ball in the net the rest of the way. N.Tzaferis and his captain T.Bozinakis combined for four points in the loss.
(1)Capitals vs Rated R(0)
One tally, along with tight defence and solid goaltending was enough for a Capitals victory. C.Valois struck late in the first period and the Capitals never looked back as they protected the lead the rest of the way. Each goaltender lived up to their expectations that saw J-F Aumais collect the shutout while his counter part A.Caruso was a rock as well allowing only one goal.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to J-F Aumais. The veteran net minder stood strong between the pipes allowing the Capitals to grab a 1-0 win over Rated R.
