(1)Wocafloka vs Les Coqs(2)
F.Vigliotti shocks Wocafloka with impressive display in net
F.Vigliotti was sensational throughout the game, as Wocafloka fired more than enough attempts only to beat the net minder once. The veteran stopped all but one power play goal when A.Desrosiers cut the lead in half. Vigliotti really shone in the third-stopping 14 shots to preserve the tight 2-1 lead. Les Coqs found a way to start off stronger with the games first two goals. M.Goudreau bagged both tallies in the first period to put Les Coqs in the driver’s seat. After that, it was all F.Vigliotti who helped give Les Coqs an important three points to the standings.
(3)Werewolves vs Bramabulls(6)
Collective team effort, Bulls capture big win over Wolves
M.Lang beat the first period buzzer to give the Bramabulls a 3-2 lead. That was Lang’s second goal of the game which fueled his bench to be more determined as the game went on. The Bramabulls got stronger from that point on adding two second period tallies to carry a commanding 5-2 third period lead. Both lines chipped in that saw the offence spread out evenly. D.Verta collected three points and A.Grieco was stable in net pushing 23 of 26 shots. This came as an important win for the Bramabulls who just widened the margin by six points over the last place Werewolves.
(3)Fat Roy vs Fatal Demons(4) O.T
Fatal Demons surrender three late goals, but take match in overtime
J.Velenosi scored three late goals to recover from a huge deficit, but it was all for nothing as the Fatal Demons took the game in overtime. For well over two periods, the Fatal Demons were in control of the situation leading as early as the ten minute mark of the opening frame. L.Dulcetta sparked his clubs first two goals and later added the sudden death winner to also finish with a hat trick. Fat Roy mounted their comeback by the eleven and a half minute mark of the third period. J.Velenosi ignited three goals in that span, tying the game with just over 22 seconds remaining. If that wasn’t enough, Fat Roy had some very good scoring chances in overtime only to get shutdown by S.Sauk.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Luigi Dulcetta of the Fatal Demons. The veteran sharp shooter riffled three goals that included the sudden death winner in a 4-3 win over Fat Roy....

(6)Carnage vs Spare Parts(7)
Spare Parts get buzzer beating goal by A.Dayan
Whether it’s at the end of the first or second period, or to win the game, buzzer beating goals are some of the most exciting moments in hockey. In this contest, A.Dayan rescued his team from playing the overtime frame by completing a hat trick with only one second left on the clock. The Spare Parts also got a three goal night from N.Macrozonaris. What made this one really hard to swallow for Carnage was that they mounted a remarkable four goal third period comeback only to drop the game at the very end. F.Benhamadi and C.DeMelo were part of the comeback posting two goals each.
(7)Les Balcons vs Street Ballers(4)
Battle till the end, Les Balcons get the better of Ballers
Les Balcons won a grinding, intense game over the Street Ballers improving to a 3-3 record. The younger squad carried the play for well over two periods with scoring efforts from four different players. Then, A.Augusto and G.Page struck for a second time finishing with two goals each. In an effort to narrow the gap, the Street Ballers battled back with three third period markers where the trailed by one but weren’t able to tie the game. Les Balcons added some insurance with two late goals to cap off the win. In the loss, Y.Dube keeps on scoring as the lanky forward added two more tallies to lead the division with nine goals.
(4)Eagles vs SBS Trashers(7)
J.Scalia nets three, Trashers improve to 5-1 record
If there is someone who is able to put the ball behind net minders, is definitely the number ten of the SBS Trashers. J.Scalia has a knack for the net and tonight was just another day at the office for the Trashers sniper. Scalia posted goals in every period giving him a total of seven on the season to trail only two players. Two of his tallies came with the man advantage. The SBS Trashers rounded off the first period up 3-2 and had their best moments by the third adding three more goals. It may have come as a loss, but the Eagles are glad to get P-A Surprenant to their line up as the established goal scorer made a sudden impact with a goal and an assist.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joseph Scalia of the SBS Trashers. His three goals and one assist helped his club get the better of the Eagles on Thursday night....
Wednesday June 22
(6)United Arms vs Faceless(3)
Six different goal scorers help United Arms double up Faceless
Six goals in a game are plenty but the United Arms only got going as of the six minute mark of the second period. A.Melkonian set up two teammates before adding a late second period goal for a 3-1 lead. What also hurt Faceless was when A.Tachejian widened the margin with a player less. Faceless then responded with the next two goals with S.DelGaudio’s second but it was a close as it got. G.Jerjian capped of the night scoring in an empty cage. K.Haratounian rejected 20 of 23 shots to help improve the United Arms to a 4-2 record.
(2)Park Avenue vs Tropics(4)
V.Crivello caps 4 goal night with incredible effort
It was the V.Crivello show on Wednesday night as the Tropics doubled up Park Avenue. Crivello scored all four goals in the win, including at least one in every period. Park Avenue did act first when P.Nakhle beat A.Boulieri mid way in the first period. The Tropics got their scoring done late in the same frame and added two straight markers before E.Girouard narrowed the gap for the Park Avenue. Each net minder were very busy facing close to 30 shots. A.Boulieri got the win over Pedram Assadi who just finished playing his first of two games on the night.
(3)Park Avenue vs Punishers(6)
Punishers take advantage of tired group
Well rested for their game, the Punishers overpowered the Park Avenue. P.Karvouriaris got the ball rolling with the Punishers first two goals, then four different players continued the onslaught en route to a 6-3 victory. Three straight tallies were set up by C.Gagnon, all coming by the second period. In the loss, E.Girouard did his usual putting at least two behind the opposing net minder. The Punishers don’t have the most goals or the best defense but occupy first place of the division with 15 points.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Vincent Crivello of the Tropics. In a 4-2 win over Park Avenue, V.Crivello scored all of his teams goals....
Wednesday June 22
(4)Monsters vs Les Raymonds(1)
Three second period goals lead Monsters over Les Raymonds
S.Nobile scored twice right before J.Marchica stretched the lead for the Monters late in the second period. Both sides had their fair share of power play chances trading one goal each.The Monsters out shot Les Raymonds to capture an important win in the season. Prior to the match, only three points separated both clubs for the last playoff spot. The Monsters will be breathe easier with a six point lead as Les Raymonds will be forced to capture some wins if they plan to make the post season.
(5)Bolts vs Money Shot(4)
Both teams thrive in special team’s battle, edge Bolts
Some lack of third period disciple nearly came to hurt the Bolts, who managed to hold on to the tight win. The Money Shot scored three times with the man advantage, two coming by the third period when L.DeCubellis and T.Oliveira each scored to come within reasonable margin. Then, M.Pinella narrowed the gap by one and all of a sudden the Money Shot were back in the game. The only problem was that there wasn’t much time to continue their momentum. The Bolts had to kill nearly four minutes to capture the victory. M.Gagnon had a multi goal night and C.Stamadianos may have netted the most important goal of the game coming in a shorthanded situation for the winner.
(3)Acolytes vs Deadlast(2)
Acolytes wake up in the third period to beat Deadlast
G.Langelier was victorious making 21 saves, and the Acolytes scored three times in the third period to upend Deadlast. The Acolytes trailed twice during the night, but once they grabbed the lead, G.Langelier made sure to protect it. K.Levasseur, R.Lefebvre and S.Dicaire all came through when their team needed them the most. This marks a fifth win in six games for the second seed of the F2 division.
(5)Primetime vs Pendelis(6)
S.Bentivegna’s hat trick powers Pendelis past Primetime
S.Bentivegna notched half of his team’s goals, and Pendelis walked away with a rollicking 6-5 win over Primetime on Wednesday night .After a dominant second period, Pendelis looked to have an easy night but it wasn’t the case as Primetime crept back into the match. With less than 30 seconds remaining, A.Petrucco leveled the game at five in what was surely headed for overtime. But as luck would have it, Pendelis responded with a quick dagger only seconds later courtesy of Bentivegna’s hat trick. That goal came on the power play which was their second tally with the man advantage. It may have come as a stinger, but Primetime won’t be feeling to down after battling hard to make a game of it.
(6)Hellfish vs Bulldogs(5) O.T
Bulldogs winning streak hits wall, fall in overtime
The Bulldogs rode a four game unbeaten streak that fell to the hands of the Hellish. The Hellfish took their opponents very serious from the beginning with three unanswered goals. A start to the game that the Bulldogs aren’t used to. Despite falling deep in a hole, the Bulldogs demonstrated that they weren’t out of the woods just yet. With the help of a power play goal by M.Turgeon and a shorthanded tally from N.Smith, the Bulldogs pulled within one. The Hellfish did finish the second period stronger with M.Chartrands’s power play goal for a 5-3 lead. But that lead was eventually compromised when M.Denominee and M.Turgeon each tallied for their second of the game. The Bulldogs had the momentum going into overtime but couldn’t feed off it as S.Monnet spoiled the night giving the Hellfish plenty to celebrate.
(4)Horsemen vs HC Inter(2)
P.Sidhom scores twice, Horsemen rally by HC Inter
Despite tying the game twice, the HC Inter struggled to get that much needed lead versus the division leaders. In the second period, P.Sidhom carried the Horsemen with two big goals getting help from V.Pandza, who added one as well for his third point of the game. Each side did all of their scoring by the second which left M.Vinciguerra to take care of the third period. The net minder had another hot night denying 23 of 25 shots. In the loss, D.Crivello got the scoring done with both goals. Its six games into the regular season and no one has yet to figure out the Horsemen as they remain undefeated.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Sergio Bentivegna of Pendelis. The newly added player made an immediate impact with three goals that included a late dagger in a close 6-5 win over Primetime....

(2)Ultimate Hockey vs Smackdaddys(5)
M.Destounis nets hat trick in Smackdaddys win over Ultimate Hockey
Led by a M.Destounis hat trick, the Smackdaddys collected their fourth victory to move into second place of the division. The lanky forward had a four point night and sealed the win by adding an empty net marker. The Smackdaddys also had J.Bolanakis make some noise with two goals and an assist. The Ultimate Hockey had the better start when M.Metivier opened the scoring on the power play. That was his first of two on the night. Goaltender S.Morante was for the most part solid, allowing only two goals on 25 shots.
(3)Bramabulls vs VE-TANK(7)
VE-TANK pull away in third period to rout Bramabulls, 7-3
J.Parisella was the only multi goal scorer in the win, but he wasn’t the player to have the most goals in the match. Out of their lone three goals, A.Raimondo provided all the offence for the Bramabulls. Each side were deadlocked at two goals a piece until M-A Lefebvre snapped the tie late in the second period. Then, it was the beginning of the end for the Bulls who conceded four third period tallies. Lefebvre added two more assists to finish with a four point game. With this win, the VE-TANK remain solid in first place with only one loss in six starts.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marino Destounis of the Smackdaddys. The skilled forward provided much of the offence with three goals and an assist in a 5-2 win over the Ultimate hockey....
Tuesday June 21
G.DeMarinis sparks Dragons with back to back wins
G.DeMarinis provided a potent display of hockey on Tuesday night as the spark plug helped the Dragons take both games versus the Fast and Furious. The shifty forward found himself in position by moving all the time and creating more than enough chances that the Dragons eventually capitalized on. After collecting two points in the opening game, G.DeMarinis brought it a level further by adding three tallies and a helper to complete a gratifying night. The Fast and Furious have been struggling to get any sort of scoring done as of late, but managed to break open in the second contest by putting four behind S.Fraga. M.Poisson-Savard and his captain T.Cogliandro combined for four points in the loss.

Mr clutch D.DiGiacomoJr comes through for Stones
D.DiGiacomoJr made his goals count on Tuesday night. The sniper scored two out of the three goals that the Stones produced to take the opening contest 3-1.To his help, M.DiLena was behind setting up all three markers. The Hawks had a hard time playing from behind against a defensive style that wouldn’t give in. Q.Joseph was the lone tallyman for the Hawks to beat C.Muccino, who made 13 saves. With a chance to rebound in the second game, the Hawks made it a point to try and play with the lead. D.Galloro enabled that to happen after riffling his second of the game to put the Hawks in front 3-2.At that point, the Hawks stressed a solid man on man effort to eliminate any sort of scoring chances but couldn’t stop one particular player. D.DiGiacomoJr came through once more with a desperate slap shot that gave no chance to S.Pare. With that goal, each side needed a shootout to determine a winner. D.Galloro of the Hawks and M.DiLena of the Stones got the lone goals which resulted in a tie. This is the fourth meeting between the two sides and the Hawks have yet to grab a win.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Dominic DiGiacomoJr of the Stones. As clutch as it gets, D.GiacomoJr was very vital for both results with a total of three key goals....
Monday June 20
Team X rout overmatched Young Gunz with two wins
After ending the first period tied 1-1, Team X took control in the second with six straight goals to take the opening contest. J.Melo and D.Galloro each had two goals and Pedram Assadi was stable in net to capture a 10 save win. This was an uncharacteristic game for the Young Gunz who have been extremely hot as of late. Team X applied a very simple game plan that worked. The veteran side waited for their opponent’s error and used their counter attack to generate chances. The Young Gunz had a chance to put this loss behind them with another game ahead of them, but the result weren’t far off. In the second match, Team X continued from where they left off striking with four first period tallies. Four different players scored in the opening frame. A.Lanni did add his second early in the second period with a power play goal. The only bright moment in the loss was when G.DeLuca beat P.Assadi to spoil his shutout. The Young Gunz had a bad night and will look to put it behind them quickly as they plan to rebound in next week’s battle versus the Last Minute.

Les Carmonis stifle 1 Timer in heated battle
Throughout the opening period, Les Carmonis’s checking game was much better than the 1 Timer’s. Les Carmonis did a good job putting pressure which eventually resulted in three goals. L.Folini set up both C.Desmarais and A.Ducharme and Les Carmonis won a big first period 3-0.The 1 Timer did have some bite in the second frame to narrow the margin, but the time just wasn’t there for the comeback. J-P Boucher faced twelve shots and some high quality scoring chances to take the win in net. With a chance to rebound in the second contest, the 1 Timer put up a better performance only top fall short in the shootout. Each side sent their best options to take the breakaways. However, it was Les Carmonis’s players that got the scoring done. L.Folini and C.Desmarais saw their bench overjoyed after getting the better of F.Koch. On the flip side, J-P Boucher may have been a factor once more as the goaltender collected two big wins.

Jokers jump to better start, Last Minute end night stronger
After eying a very short bench, J.Pereira and the Jokers smelled blood and made sure to take advantage with a big first period. R.Fortin-Lamothe was involved in all three goals that included helpers on A.Dayan’s and J.Pimentel’s tallies. The Jokers kept pressing by the second giving very little opportunity for the Last Minute to keep the ball. With time winding down, S.Dimakos sealed the opening contest with an empty net marker. Due to the circumstances of playing with only two spares, the Last Minute knew the importance of scoring first. It took just over three minutes for J.Cool to give his club an important lead. That goal forced the Jokers to even the score which proved to be very difficult to do with a team playing in shutdown mode. They did however have their fair share of golden opportunities where in one case where they missed a complete open net. A.Dayan looked like he was going get at least one by setting up plenty of chances but it just wasn’t meant to be. C.Stavriadis started the night slow but may have been the major reason why the Last Minute escaped with the second contest. In the victory, J.Cool had a productive game scoring two out of his clubs three goals.

(10)HC Mutts vs Lumberjacks(4)
HC Mutts blast Lumberjacks in first period onslaught
The HC Mutts launched a first period attack Sunday night that the Lumberjacks just couldn’t defend against. S.Cacciotti’s second goal of the frame spelled the beginning of the end for the Lumberjacks who would have needed a complete turnaround to bounce from a 6-1 deficit. Things did calm down from that point on with the HC Mutts rounding off the second period with a six goal cushion. N.DeGregorio and D.Rubbo duplicated Cacciotti’s effort notching two goals each. J.Capaldo stopped over 22 shots to earn the win in net, but struggled to stop D.Ruiz who bagged three out of the four goals for the Lumberjacks.
(7)Icons vs Team Mixed(1)
No contest, Icons run over Team Mixed
You are only pressing your luck when showing up with only two changes versus a team like the Icons. Although Team Mixed struck strike early on with a goal by N.Macrozonaris, the rest of the game belonged only to the division leaders. The Icons pulled away by the mid way point of the match with C.Stamadianos and P.Karvouriaris scoring just over a minute apart. Then, P.Karvouriaris added his second minutes later and his third with the games last goal of the night. For three straight goals, M.Arkalis and G.Chountalos were behind setting them up. After a shaky start to the night, C.Stavriadis re focused and made sure to keep a clean sheet between the pipes.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Peter Karvouriaris of the Icons. The natural sniper put three behind F.Vigliotti and accumulated an assist to earn the player of the night....
Monday April 18 (B Finals)
(2)Spartans vs Bramabulls(4) Game 2
Bramabulls over power Spartans to capture B division title
Aside from a few moments, there was little bite from the Spartans who struggled to get any goal scoring done for most of the night. The Spartans were done in by their inability to cash in on their scoring chances .J.Beaudry, backed up by an air tight defense lived up to the task going flawless for nearly the entire game. The Bramabulls scored late goals in both the first and second periods and made the score 3-0 before P.Plaisir got the better of Beaudry late in the match. Still not out of it yet, the Spartans notched their second tally when J.Adamou riffled a slap shot from the blue line to get within one. That goal forced A.DiPerna to use a timeout. After gathering his troops, the Bramabulls took plenty of possession with just over a minute remaining giving no time for an equalizer. D.Morency seized the opportunity by hitting an empty cage for his second of the contest. If the Spartans had a night in which nothing went right, then the Bramabulls had a night in which nothing went wrong. Led by their captain A.DiPerna, and the presence of many talented players the, Bramabulls reached their goal on Monday night as B division champions. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Anthony Diperna and the rest of his troops for getting it done.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes out to Jonathan Beaudry. After facing 20 shots, the veteran net minder stood tall and protected a 3-0 lead for nearly the entire night to earn his biggest win of the season....
