(4)Butchers vs Lynx(2)
Butchers late goal stuns Lynx
Despite tying the game 2-2 at the mid way point of the third period, the Lynx ultimately fell to the hands of the Butchers. There wasn't much confidence entering the night for the Butchers, who knew it was going to be difficult with only eight players versus last season's champs. But by keeping it as simple as possible, the contest remained extremely close. Every player made it a point to stick with their man, and by doing so, the few chances required would eventually come. K.Kersaint and T.Karasek had the difficult task of playing centre that involved plenty of running to support the defence and the offence. Both players each scored while combing for four points. Perhaps the biggest reason why the Butchers got it done was due to their goaltender. C.Confuonti continues to impress earning another win in only three games.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Cameron Confuonti of the Butchers. By making it look easy at times, the young net minder was stellar stopping 22 of 24 shots-from a high octane offense.
