Degenerates apply boring style to benefit 4 points
If anyone planned on watching the Degenerates play on Monday night they were better of watching golf on television or perhaps staring at the wall for more excitement. Only five players dressed against a deeper younger side which could have only suggested for a boring style hockey game. The Black Eagles did their part controlling the ball while the Degenerates just hung back waiting for their moment. Considering the circumstances, the overall results were satisfactory for the few players dressed. P.Assadi allowed only one goal in two games while J.Melo and E.Allen did the scoring for the Degenerates. As for the Black Eagles, N.Bisson was their only player to taste the back of the net.

1 Timer and Chic Choc clash in Dr Jekll and Mr Hyde performance
The set of events that occurred between the two sides can only be described as bizarre. In the first contest, the 1 Timer dominated their opponent and it seemed as though the Chic Choc forgot how to play hockey. Then, once the game ended, the complete opposite happened in the second encounter. This time, the Chic Choc made the 1 Timer look like they were the children on the court. A 6-1 dominant victory led to a thumping 7-1 loss in the span of only half an hour. Depending on how the two teams want to look at it, there were many areas of positives as there were negatives. The net minders weren't too happy but managed to trade lopsided victories. The 1 Timer had balanced contribution in the scoring department while M.Ethier, E.Gacem and Y.Belkassem each scored twice for the Chic Choc.

Legacy get rude awakening at hands of rival
Surely, Legacy can look at what happened to them on Monday night as only the first game of the regular season. After all, they did play a rival opponent that is just getting their feet wet in a 4vs4 format. Still, much more was expected as only the Armadillos really showed up to play. After earning a 4-2 win to open up the night, the second contest wasn't even close. Legacy had no fire, bite or passion to try and rebound for a split. Instead, the Armadillos only got better bagging five unanswered goals. P.Legatos and G. Bouchard each scored twice and C.Stavriadis reminded a familiar opposition how good he is in net. Apart-from giving up two early goals to J.Rochon, the net minder went flawless the rest of the way.

Smart play and focus came into play for the Corporation
Knowing how deadly the Kings counter attack can be, the Corporation made it a point to try and slow it down. That formula involved all six players committed to a man on man game. And while the defensive aspect was there, so was the offense. The Corporation timed their chances and benefited just enough times to get the upper hand. S.Marricco got the ball rolling striking twice in the opening contest. The second game saw A.Zarzour bury a pair as both players combined for eight points. Even though the Kings didn't get the results, their overall performance was a threat throughout the two games and they did it without key components such as M.Orlando and the Velenosi brothers.
